Hedge Trimmer Buyer's Guide
How To Pick The Perfect Hedge Trimmer
Technically, the only tool a barber needs to do his job is a pair of scissors.
He won't make much money, though. He'll spend all his time delicately snipping away at even the thickest hair.
With an electric hair clipper in hand, however, a barber becomes much more efficient. Long strands of hair get cut down to size in no time.
The same idea applies to hedge trimmers.
With a hedge trimmer, you'll groom and sculpt all your bushes in a fraction of the time, so you can spend less time trimming and more time enjoying your yard. All you have to decide is which is better for you, electric or gas?
Electric Hedge TrimmersWith no need for gas and oil, electric hedge trimmers take the mess and equipment maintenance out of trimming your hedges. They offer other benefits as well:
- Environmentally friendly
Gas-Powered Hedge TrimmersGas hedge trimmers provide more power than their electric counterparts. They also have more features to make trimming pleasant, including some of the following examples:
- Vibration dampening systems
- Adjustable handles that rotate up to 180 degrees
- Exhaust systems designed to direct exhaust away from the user
- Single-sided blades
- Double-sided blades
