Hedge Trimmer Buyer's Guide

Technically, all a barber needs is a pair of scissors to do his job.

But he won't make much money because he'll spend all his time clipping and clipping away.

But with clippers, a barber is much more efficient. Same thing with hedge trimmers.

With a hedge trimmer, you'll groom and sculpt all your bushes in no time so you can spend less time trimming and more time enjoying your yard.

It's All About the Blade
Hedge Trimmer Blade
Hedge trimmer blades come in one of two styles: single- or double-sided. Double-sided blades are more common and also cut more efficiently. Single-sided blades are safer because you can always keep the cutting edge away from you.

A wide range of blade lengths provide different user experiences. Longer blades allow you to trim bushes more evenly but may be tougher to wield. Smaller blades, such as 18" are sufficient for trimming average-sized hedges and bushes.



Electric Hedge Trimmers
Electric Hedge Trimmer
They're clean, environmentally friendly, and light weight. Electric hedge trimmers take the mess, maintenance, and excessive sound out of trimming your hedges.

Whether you choose a battery-powered or a corded plug-in hedge trimmer, you'll find it's a lot less hassle than a gas model. If you're looking for something that's easy to maneuver and doesn't require knowledge in small-engines, this is the tool for you.



Gas Hedge Trimmers
Gas Hedge Trimmer
Gas hedge trimmers offer more power than their electric counterparts. They also have more features, like vibration dampening and adjustable handles which rotate up to 180 degrees.

Gas hedge trimmers are 2-cycle, so you'll have to mix gas and oil in the tank. Gas units are ideal for large yards that require more heavy-duty trimming. And there's no cord, so you're free to roam wherever the hedges take you.
