Hi, I recommend checking the fuse. If you are using a mains circuit breaker or extension lead, also try connecting the trimmer direct to the mains or see if another device operates from the same breaker/extension lead.

My hedge trimmer has a faulty switch


Hi Bob:
First, make sure the power supply cord is connected with power at the tool.
Since it's already broke, you really can't hurt it so you get to play if you're into it.
Disconnect from power supply!
Try to determine if something is stopping the switch from moving far enough to function.
Dismantle until you can get the switch out. Try to clean the switch terminals and check the function with a continuity meter.
If you can't get it to work, see your local dealer about getting a replacement part.

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!

My hedge trimmer blades do not move when I turn it on


Check the power wires that connect to the motor. My 18 inch B&D hedge trimmers both had loose wires at the motor that had to be re-soldered. You will need to open the trimmer casing to get to the loose wires, if that is the problem.

Best way to sharpen it


A bench belt sander is the best way to sharpen hedge trimmers, however, they do have to be taken apart, and many trimmers are rivetted together, and that is the difficult part. If it is bolted together, no problems.

a homelite is disposable, get a new one. You can pull it apart and see what broke and how much the new parts are. worst case, get the new one.

My electric B&D hedge trimmer quit working. It is not the power cord. What could it be and can it be fixed?


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.

Does not run


With out seeing the trimmers it is a little difficult to tell but with process of elimination - you may want to check the blades to see if the bolts on the blades are to tight there should be very little play so the blades move freely, that wold cause it to heat up, or you may have a short in the wiring which could also cause it to heat up. For the wiring you will have to take the handle and housing apart. If you have to take it apart take your time and lay everything out in order that you take it apart so that all you have to do is go in reverse order to put it all back. Any problems or questions feel free to ask and I will gladly help.
