Cordless Hedge Trimmers
When it comes to giving yourself the most liberating and freeing experience when it comes to trimming your hedge, no power tool gives you what you need like a cordless hedge trimmer does. Offering complete freedom of movement and no gasoline or gas fumes, no other trimmer comes to close when it comes to getting any job done.
Whether you’re working quite a distance away from a power outlet or you just want to accurately move into the more difficult of places, there are plenty of benefits that come with a cordless hedge trimmer, such as never having to worry about where the cable is, or cutting through it accidentally.
Is a cordless hedge trimmer better than a corded trimmer?
Spec-wise, there are very few differences between a corded and cordless hedge trimmer, but there are some key benefits that it can bring into your life. For example, if you’re living in a big garden and don’t have many accessible outlets, a cordless trimmer would be perfect for getting to the boundaries of your land.
What’s more, there’s always a risk of cutting through the cable with a corded trimmer, or the trimmer getting tangled around the trimmings or even your feet, all of which then becomes a safety hazard. You can avoid these completely with a cordless device.
Are there any downsides to a cordless trimmer?
Since most cordless trimmers run on batteries, all usage is completely dependent on whether you have charged up batteries or not. If the battery dies, you’ll need to recharge it before you can start again. However, most batteries will last a fair amount of time (always check the product description to see how long) and buying another spare battery can be a great way to keep working.
With a second battery, you can then place the first battery on charge and then keep swapping them over, meaning you’re never going to have to worry about running out of power!
Can a cordless hedge trimmer cut through branches?
While you’ll need a power tool that’s much more heavy-duty to cut through a thick branch, like a tree branch, most hedge trimmers, cordless versions included, will be able to cut through branches around ¾-inch thick. However, this will depend on the blade size and power output of your chosen hedge trimmer.
As a rule of thumb, it’s recommended you stick to using your hedge trimmer on hedges, rather than trees. This way, you’ll avoid damaging your trimmer and potentially causing injury to yourself or others.
