How to cut medium sized hedges

Powerful petrol-engine Hedge Trimmers provide unrestricted freedom of movement when working. With no cable to restrict you, they are the first choice when power and quality results are important.

Electric Hedge Trimmers are ideal for small to medium-sized gardens and are equipped with a low-noise electric motor. They are perfect for use in noise-sensitive areas – close to neighboring gardens for example, as are the powerful new cordless models which combine the benefits of both.

TECHNIQUE FOR CUTTING MEDIUM-SIZED HEDGES

Cutting the sides of the hedge vertically

 

The first step is to cut the sides of the hedge vertically in a sweeping arc-shaped movement. A Hedge Trimmer with double-sided blades means you will save time as you cut in both the upward and downward stroke. Walk forwards as you work, cutting along the length of the hedge. 

Cutting the top of the hedge

 

When cutting the top of the hedge the cutter bar should be held horizontally at a slight angle (around 10°). Remove the clippings from the hedge with scything movements.
