As warm temperatures arrive, bushes and hedges in our gardens start to grow again. Although they can add a beautiful touch to your landscape, cutting them down and giving them a proper shape can be a chore.
Taking out your hedge trimmer and having to deal with gasoline and oil is bad enough but pulling the cord over and over praying for it to start? Who has time for that?
If your trimmer is electric, that means you need to drag along an extension cord that always seems to get tangled after you take three steps.
Now you can have the throttle power of professional garden care equipment without the gas, without the oil, and without the mess. The Greenworks Tools (2200207) Battery Powered Long Reach Hedge Trimmer will let you get the job done while it delivers gas performance in a cordless 24v system.

Easy to Use

When you need increasing reach and leverage, with other trimmers you will have to use a ladder. Forget about that. This trimmer has a built-in extending shaft made form high-quality aluminium, which makes it strong while keeping the weight to a minimum.
It can extend the reach for up to 2 meters and has a locking lever to hold the pole securely in place.
This double action mechanism reduces vibrations and cuts branches evenly from both sides, which eliminates bark peel and gives your plants a healthier cut.
The 18mm cutting capacity handles larger shrubs with ease.
A red steel support makes it easier to see the blades when they are obscured by plants or branches.
This tool is meant to be used comfortably for extended periods of time. You see, the problem with gas-powered trimmers is that that they use a mixture of gasoline and oil. If you don’t use the correct ratio, the engine will sputter and vibrate.
Even if you do get the right proportions, you still need to make sure you use the gas in a certain amount of time. Gasoline has volatile components that tend to evaporate over time. This makes it burn less efficiently and your trimmer won’t run very well, also causing the unit to vibrate when you use it.
Using a rechargeable battery eliminates almost all the vibrations. The rubber coated forearm support will reduce vibrations even further, so you can rest assured that your hands will not feel numb after using this tool.
A shoulder harness is available at the balance point of the trimmer, which gives you excellent control while you are pruning.
The Greenworks hedge trimmer makes it much easier to adjust the blades. A 3-multiple position pivoting head lets you cut your hedges exactly as you need to.
- Dual action blade for optimal performance and durability
- Controlled, easy trimming of most bushes and hedges
- Telescoping shaft for extended reach
- Reduced vibration and smoother cutting
- Lock-off switch to prevent accidental start ups
- Lots of plastic
