Hedge trimmers

We carry a wide selection of both electric and petrol powered hedgecutters by manufacturers Alko, Bosch, Maruyama, Mitox, Stihl and Tanaka.

For lighter duty work the electric machines are convenient and light to use. This type of machine will typically cope with branches of 13 – 20mm diameter (some claim to be capable of cutting up to 34mm branches but we would recommend purchasing a petrol machine for this work as the drive gears are much more substantial). They require little maintenance but are hindered in use by the mains cable and the need for a convenient electricity supply. It is always recommended that an RCD safety device be used with these machines.

Prices range from £89.00 to 135.00

Alko HT550
Priced at £99.00
The Alko machines feature a special safety cable which cannot be cut by the hedgecutter blades (a problem encountered by many a customer!)

Budget cordless or battery powered machines are suitable for light cutting. There are a number of higher quality cordless machines now available that can rival some of the petrol machines. Stihl produce a range of Lithium Ion battery products available to us but we carry the Mountfield 48v Lithium Ion range. Their 24″ hedgecutter is priced at £237.00 complete with battery and charger but the unit alone £159.00 as the battery and charger witt power several other tools in their range.

For the gardener who requires a heavier duty machine, the petrol machines generally offer more robust blades and gearboxes and are suitable for more prolonged use. The better quality machines can cope with branches of over 25mm diameter.

We offer a range of over 15 petrol hedgetrimmers including the Stihl, Tanaka, Maruyama and Mitox ranges. Prices of the quality petrol machines range from £229.00 to £539.00.

The Tanaka TCHEAP2(50) is our most popular model and has a top quality 22cc engine with 20″ cut at £229.00.

Pole Hedgecutters are increasingly popular for high and awkward hedges. The cutting heads can usually be adjusted through a range of angles and they are a safe and convenient alternative to balancing on a ladder or constructing scaffolding. We stock a wide range of machines with prices starting at only £159.00 for a budget tool but better quality units will cost in excess of £450.00. Hedgetrimmer attachments can also be fitted to standard brushcutters or can be purchased as part of a combi-system where one engine unit can be used for, strimming / brushcutting, hedgecutting, pruning and lawn edging. One of the most popular options is to buy the Tanaka TBC2390 Brushcutter at £239 and the pole hedgecutter attachment THT200 at £199 giving you a high quality dual purpose product at a reasonable price.
