What Users Say
Those who use this Fox garden tool, really appreciate the value for money that it brings because it has a powerful engine and you have both a hedge trimmer and grass strimmer in one tool.
After prolonged use some found that it can become heavy, especially if you are working on higher hedgerows, but this would probably be the case with many petrol machines because they are going to be heavier due to the motor unit.
Users appreciated the quality that you get for your money with this tool, but commented that the spool feed for the strimmer string could be better as it doesn’t always feed as effectively as it should do. Also, there have been some reports that the petrol leaks out of the tank when using at certain angles on hedges.
Overall, those who have bought the item feel it is a worthwhile investment due to the price and how effective it is but if it’s a high quality product that you are after you should probably think about purchasing a more expensive model, which can be found on our petrol grass trimmers page.
- Robust and high power engine
- Great value for money
- Grass trimmer and hedge cutting attachments
- Ease of assembling
- Strimmer spool can be a little fiddly
What We Say
Having such a powerful motor in your hands serves you well for those stubborn areas of grass, brush and bush that you need to work your way through. This product will certainly have enough horsepower to tackle such jobs.
This machine isn’t one of the highest quality products we have reviewed but we weren’t expecting it to be because of the price tag. It also has two attachments so we were asking ourselves the question whether it was going to be a jack of all trades, master of none type of product. To be fair, it does a great job on both the grass trimming and hedge cutting duties so we really like it.
For those who want to move up to a petrol powered machine but without the hefty price tag, this is a great option. If you are looking to replace a hedge cutter and get a grass trimmer for free, even better! If you are happy to put up with a few minor issues, such as a sometimes fiddly spool feeder system on the strimmer then you won’t be disappointed with this machine. If you aren’t happy with that, up your budget and buy a more expensive model.

On a budget but want a powerful garden tool for your collection? Want two tools for the price of one? Not a professional but an enthusiastic gardener with a larger area to strim and cut? If you answered yes to two or more of these questions this is a suitable product your should consider buying.
