Hedge trimmers are some of the most versatile and time-saving outdoor tools you’ll own. There are different types and sizes available, and for all but the smallest shrubs (where you can use manual hedge clippers), you’ll want a power hedge trimmer to get the job done quickly and easily.
With so many electric hedge trimmers out there, it’s important to assess your needs and select one that has the features and dimensions that will work best for you. Here are some tips.
Choosing the right size hedge trimmer
First, take a look around your yard. Are your hedges short and compact or do they meet you at eye level or higher? Trimmers with shorter blades like 16-inch Hedge Trimmer are easy to maneuver and make quick work of smaller hedges and bushes. A hedge trimmer with a longer blade, such as 22 in. Hedge Trimmer, is ideal for bigger hedges where you want a larger cutting swath and smooth, clean lines. If your hedges are very large and tower over your head, or if they grow into hard-to-reach corners, consider a pole hedge trimmer to give you extra reach.
Comfort is key when choosing an electric hedge trimmer
Make sure you pick up and hold a variety of bush trimmer styles before you buy, because how it feels in your hands will impact how long you can comfortably work. Here are some comfort features to look for:
- T-style handles have a sturdy t-shaped knob at the front to provide a wide, balanced grip on the trimmer and plenty of control. The Electric Hedge Trimmer with T-handle is compact and perfect for smaller cutting jobs. It also has a full-length trigger to reduce fatigue.
- Wrap-around handles are designed for maximum comfort and maneuverability because you can easily change your grip position according to the angle of the cut.
- Dual-action blades reduce vibration compared to single-action blades, helping to improve comfort and reduce fatigue as you work.
