A lot of boundary hedges are so tall that you can't cut the top easily with a conventional hedge trimmer, and we would not recommend balancing on a ladder while using one.
Long reach or pole hedge trimmers have fixed long shaft, which can be extended, to let you cut the side of a hedge above head height. The blade can also be set at right angles to the shaft so you can cut the top whilst standing on ground level.
The engine on this hedge trimmer is a high performance two stroke / stroke hybrid 1.4 horse power 4-mix engine. This gives an increase in torque with better fuel economy.
The two blades are double sided and 50cm long. There are 13 steps through to 135 degrees which they can be set to, which gives the user a wide range of angles for all sorts of hedges. For easy and safe storage and transportation, the blades can be locked parallel to the shaft
This long pole hedge trimmer has the Stihl anti vibration technology which gives the professional gardener a safer and more comfortable user friendly machine. The multi-function handle and padded body harness with the light weight frame (under 7kg ) add to the user comfort.
