GTech’s latest offering, the new ultra lightweight HT05 Plus hedge trimmer is a fantastic piece of kit and all for under £100.
It’s comparable to the GTech HT20, but has a few differences. The HT05 version is lighter, allows you to reach higher hedges but doesn’t cut through as thick branches.

Long Reach & Extendable
The HT05 provides a 1.7m extendable, telescopic (slides in and out) shaft for those high hedge tops. The blade is 24cm long.
This is the ideal solution if you have high edges and do not want to use a step ladder.
Being lightweight (1.7kg) means you’ll have no issues lifting it.
High Performance & Lightweight
A 14.4v battery delivers up to 45 mins of use from a 3 hour charge, allowing you time to ease your way through the hedge cutting with the 1.7kg, ultra lightweight body it’s easy on the arms.
No more arm ache and taking forever to cut the hedge. Breeze through the task in next to no time.
Safe to Use
With a single hand safety and power trigger fitted, you can easily and safely cut your way through those bushes and hedges in no time at all and little effort.
You won’t accidentally switch it on or if left lying around, neither will children be able to use it easily.
The head can be angled for high and low use, so no more backache from bending over.

Is it Right for you?
This HT05 hedge trimmer is a fantastic buy for the price. For only £99 you get a long reach, cordless electric power tool that will deliver a great finish to your garden hedges and bushes.
If you’re after a trimmer that will take on larger branches (up to 15mm instead of 12mm), I’d recommend checking out the HT20 which is a more powerful hedge trimmer and you can buy the optional add on to cut branches, too.
Note: This is not suitable if you have very large and long hedgerows to cut through. It’s designed for small to medium sized gardens. Check out the specifications and have a think if it would be suitable for your needs.
Here’s the thing…
If you want to trim small to medium sized hedgerows, this is a perfect tool to use. It’s easy to store, reliable, cost effective and has no cords!
