Mains, battery or petrol A hedge trimmer can be powered in 3 ways: mains electricity, rechargeable battery or petrol. They all have their advantages and disadvantages, so decide which is best for you. Electrical hedge trimmers provide a clean lighter weight option with the convenience of immediate and continual use. However you may be restricted by cord length - not ideal if the hedge is a long way from your power source and having a cord can be obtrusive and dangerous. Rechargeable hedge trimmers give you the best of both worlds. They're clean to use and have no cord so they can be used anywhere, without the danger of accidentally cutting the cord. They are less powerful than petrol models and you do need to plan ahead though and make sure your batteries have been charged. 5-7 hours of charging will give you just 30 minutes use. A second battery will give you back up but if you're cutting for long periods of time, you may find this timescale too restrictive. Petrol hedge trimmers can again be used anywhere, there's no cord so they're safer. Just top them up with petrol and away you go, no charging necessary. These models do tend to be harder to use - they're heavier, noisier and smoky.

What kind of motor is in a hedge trimmer ?


NO, you can NOT put a hedge trimmer motor on a bike! That motor is too little, it will not produce enough torque to move the bike.

My hedge trimmer keeps switching off


It sounds like you may have a loose wire some where that is grounding out. You might want to check all wire connections to make sure that they are tight and also check for any bare spots in the wires were they could be touching metal and grounding its self out.

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.
