Try getting the blades sharpened. Also have them checked to see if they are tight together, sort of like a pair of scissors. If the screws holding the blades together are sloppy the blades can't cut.

I have Bosch hedge trimmer AH15 63-16C which has stopped cutting. It still seems to be working as it should and the cutters moving as normal but suddenly stopped cutting? Just wondering if this is fixable...


This sounds similar to a problem I have with my Bosch AHS 60 24s. The blades are moving but not independantly and therefore not in a cutting action. I took it apart and the bottom blade has slipped off the drive wheel. I put it all back as it should be but as soon as I used it again, the same thing happened. I'm not sure why this is happening, it may be that the motor end of the bottom blade has become slightly bent, so I will be trying to straighten at the weekend. The cost of replacement blades is prohibitive and time for a new hedge trimmer. Has anyone else had this problem and a different solution.

I need a manual for a Ryobi RHT500R Electric Hedge Trimmer 500 Watt - 55cm


I found the manual for the Ryobi hedge trimmer here: fr.ryobitools.eu/local/uploaded/catalog/e_RHT500R-600RL_UM_UK_v1.pdf . The bolts you describe hold the blade to the hedge trimmer's motor. They shouldn't have come loose. However you can check if any of the bolts are loose or have backed out of the motor.

I would suspect either a part of the branch is stuck between the blades. I have one of the small edge trimmer which gets noisy when I get a woody weed stuck in the unit. Unplug the trimmer and look at the blade for some bark stuck between the layers. On each side there are multiple blades that overlap at parts of the cutting cycle.

A parts diagram for the RHT500R is available here: http://www.magic-parts.co.uk/acatalog/Ryobi_RHT500R.php .

II hope this helps.

I have a 14 in. electric chain saw I bought last year and need to download a manual


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!

Trimer buing Question


Double position trimmers For extended reach while on the ground, a double position trimmer avoids you having to climb up high by allowing you to adjust the handle into a right angle to the blades for a level cut across the top of the hedge. Clippings collector As you trim your hedge, collect those stray cuttings in a clippings collector for a neater finish. Automatic cut out An important safety feature, this automatically switches off the hedge trimmer once the trigger is released. Hand guard For reassuring safety, a hand guard will protect you from the moving blades and from falling cuttings as you work.

Blade length problem


Hedge trimmers cut using either a single-action, where only the top blade oscillates, cutting against the stationary lower blade, or a double-action where a pair of double-sided toothed blades that slide back and forth at a high speed so you can sweep across hedges in both directions. The latter are more efficient. Blade length Consider the size of the hedge you will be cutting to get the right length blade. The longer the blade length, the more area it can cover and the quicker it will get the job done. However longer blades also require more power and larger heavier motors so weigh up blade size versus ease of use. Blade lengths range from 14 to 30 inches with long blades of 22 to 30 inches providing extended reach for taller or wider hedges. Blade width The blade width indicates the space between teeth and the maximum thickness the trimmer can cut through, eg. 20mm blade width will be able to cut through a maximum 20mm branch.
