Hedge trimmer advice

Grow in almost all private gardens hedgesand shrubs that need to be pruned regularly. As a rule, the mixture is made twice a year in spring and late autumn. To facilitate this work, the hedge clippers often called hedges or shrub trimmers. For a long time, these were only manually operated devices, with which the pruning was not only exhausting, but also very time consuming. Meanwhile, you can in addition to these so-called hand-hedge trimmers on electric. Fall back on Akku- or Bezin hedge trimmers. For all designs, the same goal is in the foreground: attractive, well-formed hedges and shrubs.

Hand hedge trimmers

Hand hedge trimmers have 15 to 20 cm long handles, with the help of 25 to 40 cm long cutting blades are moved against each other. Thanks to this design, a lever effect is created when cutting, so that even stronger or more branches can be separated at the same time without any problem. In this way, a hedge with a straight cut can be conveniently held in shape. In addition, there are models with telescopic handles that extend the leverage further extended and thus consume less power. The advantage of manual hedge trimmers is the noiseless work, where you do not have to worry about disturbing your neighbors. However, the expenditure of energy and time is high.

Electric and cordless hedge trimmers

Power-operated hedge trimmers can not be compared structurally or functionally with hand-held hedge trimmers. In these models, two wave-shaped swords that move a movable blade against a stationary blade form the base. For cutting, small knives attached to the swords cut through the branches. The special feature of electric hedge trimmers are electrically powered motors, which usually provide outputs between 500 and 700 watts. Thus, the hedge or shrub is much easier and less time consuming. On the other hand, the current or extension cable, which can quickly get in the way of work, has a disturbing effect. Anyone who finds this disorder too extreme decides instead of the normal one Electric hedge trimmerfor one Cordless hedge trimmerwhich has been a pretty good alternative for some time now. The only difference between the two variants is a lithium-ion battery, which takes over the power supply. The real advantage is that you do not need a power source close to your work. However, many models are not yet very powerful, so in the decision for a cordless Schneider on higher quality models should be used. A disadvantage is certainly the high weight of this hedge clippers , which increases by the battery to at least 4 kg.

Bezin hedge trimmers

Petrol-powered hedge trimmers are basically constructed in the same way as electrically operated devices. The functional difference is just the engine. This is usually a 2-stroke, which is operated with a mixture of oil and gasoline. The decisive advantage of Bezin hedge trimmers is the considerably higher performance, thanks to which even thicker branches can be easily separated. With the cutting qualities they hardly differ from the electric models. On the other hand, there are professional machines that achieve significantly better results, but which hardly pays off for the hobby gardener. In addition, the high weight of Bezin hedge trimmers of at least 5 kg and the strong noise.

Sword length or cutting length and sword strength

The sword or cut length of the hedge trimmer indicates how far the cut of the respective device extends over the surface of shrub or hedge. While a high blade length ensures a larger cutting area per cutting process, it also makes handling more difficult. Recommended are sword lengths from 50 cm. Cutting thickness refers to the distance between the small blades on the swords. This decides how thick the branches to be separated may be. Usually, a cutting thickness of 18 mm is sufficient. For stronger branches models are offered with a distance of the knives from 26 to 28 mm. Usually, hedges and shrubs should be cut at least once a year. This means that the knots to be cut are predominantly younger shoots, which are naturally rather thin. For this regular use of hedge clippers The lower cutting thickness is sufficient without further ado. However, if you do not cut so often, you should use a larger blade distance from the outset.
