SOURCE: Black and Decker 16 in Hedge Trimmer

I use a dremel with a sharpening stone, if u don't have one you can also use a power drill with a small sanding disk (1 inch) and course sand paper (30 or 40 grit). or you can use a bastard file. its too tight to use any kind of angle guide so just take your time and do it by eye. it shouldn't take much to get them sharp enough to do the job, over-sharpening is unnecessary and dangerous, and will make the blades dull faster. sharpen all the free blades, top and bottom, then start the trimmers to advance the blades to free up the sides you couldn't get. i use a light penetrating oil to clean the blades first, then lithium grease spray to lubricate.

SOURCE: my electric B&D hedge trimmer quit working. It is

Obviously, disconnect power from the mains...

Something has come loose inside the unit. You can disassemble the unit. Follow the power wires from the pigtail to the switch/trigger (<-- Most likely point of failure), then to the motor. Also, triple-check there is not reset button (a pop-out fuse of sorts) on that unit.

SOURCE: My B & D electric hedge trimmer blades are frozen

spray liberally with wd40, let side and hour spray rag with wd40 and clean blades and look for any bent teeth in blade that maybe binding them as u clean use pliers and screwdriver to move if any found, it is likely that wither sap dried or rust formed and is creating too much friction for blades to move wd40 will help free up blades

SOURCE: Describe your Black &amp; Decker Hedge Hog

You may have a piece of metal between the moving blade and the stationary one. Also the motor may have been at the top of the stroke when it stopped. You may be able to "force" the blade to move a little. This may free it enough to work.

SOURCE: my electric hedge trimmer blades do not move when

Check that the bolts or screws holding the two blades together aren't too tight preventing the blades sliding. Lubricate the blades also with WD40.

Electric hedge trimmer want run why?


electric hedge trimmers have 2 switches to press before it runs
one is the trigger that you pull and the other is in the handle that you hold in your left hand

it is a safety feature to stop operators cutting off their fingers

After 1-2 minutes of operating my B & D 18" hedge trimmer, it begins making a "screaming" noise. I've diagnosed it as needing oil. Am I correct? Where does the oil go? Thank you....


Hedge trimmer blades need to be lubricated, so you need to get the oil between the moving and stationary blades.

I hope this is helpful for you.

I have an 8104 type 7 black and decker hedge trimmer. It freezes up durning the cutting or just squeezing the trigger. Makes a loud buzzing noise. Almost like it is jammed and there is nothing jammed in...


Did you ever oil the cutters since you have owned it? Try this spray some PB Blaster on the cutters let it soak and then try running it. If you can't find that stuff just try some motor oil, pour it on let it soak and give it a whirl. Good Luck...

A hedge trimmer is a type of agricultural or garden tool. And as the name suggests, it is used to trim hedges. There are mainly two types of hedge trimmers - manual and electrical. Amongst these there are some below mentioned variations.

Stand Alone: A stand alone hedge trimmer could be either power driven or manual. The power driven stand alone hedge trimmer uses gasoline or electricity to operate. However, the manual or hedge trimmer driven by human force is best when you consider environmental factors. They are cheaper and easy to operate. Generally gas powered hedge trimmers or electrically powered hedge trimmers are equipped with safety devices. The mechanism is such that they operate only when the operator has both his hands on the handles.

Tractor Mounted: This type of a hedge trimmer is more suitable for pruning of plants and crops. Tractor mounted hedge trimmers either have a movable arm or they do not have a movable arm. The ones without movable arms depend only on rotating blades on a couple of central pivots placed on the tractor's side. Now, these hedge trimmers are best for growing grapes, more specifically for making wine. Small tractors driving between the grape vines are mounted with these type of hedge trimmers, without a movable arm.

Well, this was about hedge trimmers in general. Now lets get down to business. Here's a low down on a few best hedge trimmers. The following is an overview of electrical hedge trimmers comparison.

Hedge Trimmer Reviews

Stihl Hedge Trimmer HS81T: Well, this one is surely up for grabs. Stihl HS81T is a great option for keeping your hedges in a perfect shape. Stihl HS81T is lightweight with balanced design and low vibration levels. It has 24 inch or 30 inch double sided blade length. It's also equipped with rear swivel handle for enhanced comfort at different speeds. The engine power is 0.7 kW and this hedge trimmer weighs between 5.2 kg and 5.4 kg, depending on the blade size. It is good especially for shaping and sculpting your hedge. It does not start on the first pull sometimes, still Stihl is a good option for hedge trimming.

Black & Decker NHT518: Now you would perhaps love this, if you do not want the whole baggage of fuel and electric wires and so on. It is cordless and runs on a battery and 22 inch blades that give a smooth and level cut. It does a neat job of branches less than 1/2 inch thick and you get optional extra battery packs. However, it gets a thumbs down from users with regards to poor battery life. On the other hand the users like the cordless design. Again, they say that it is not as powerful as corded trimmers. Nevertheless, it is lightweight and makes minimum noise. So you can go for it.

Echo HC-150 Petrol Commercial Grade Hedge Trimmer: Well, hopefully most of the users would echo my statement that, Echo is a very efficient hedge trimmer. This is a high performing, commercial grade hedge trimmer powered by petrol. It is a smooth and **** free hedge trimmer and is great for pruning and trimming. Durability is apparently the forte of this Echo hedge trimmer. Superb double reciprocating blades cut on their return and forward strokes, which give a smooth, uniform finish to your hedges. Not a bad choice either!

Makita UH6350 Electric Hedge Trimmer: This is a well designed tool with a great cutting action, according to a magazine on mechanical products. It is light weight and can deal very well with branches upto ½ inch of diameter. Although one of the disadvantage is that you have to bear with a cord and has a single blade operation. A fairly good option if you are thinking of buying a hedge trimmer.

Well, there you go, this was a small list of best hedge trimmers. I hope the hedge trimmers comparison was useful for you.

Take your pick according to your requirements and any hedge trimmer is good so far as it helps you keep your plants in good shape! What say!

My Hedge trimmer will start and run for 2 or 3 minutes, then it dies and will not start again until the next day. Any ideas what is wrong?


Withou make and model it's tough to be accurate so I'll need to make a presumption that it's electric.

First clean the blades thoroughly then spray them liberally with a light oil like WD40

It sounds like the blades are binding and causing a thermal shutdown of the motor. Allowing it to sit over night resets the thermal circuit breaker

Do I need toil this Remington 22in electric hedge trimmer?


It's always a good idea to oil the blade of a hedge trimmer with WD40 or similar otherwise the sap from branches will eventually build up a coating on the blades and increase friction.

What can I use to clean my electric hedge trimmer


Go to your local Advance Auto store and purchase some brake cleaner. Spray it on any dirt that is there...air hose it off first, than after spraying it. When you get it as clean as you like...take some WD40 or any oil would be good and spray it on the cutter. Take the air hose and blow off the excess and you will be good to go the next time you need it.
