AL-KO Cordless Hedgetrimmers
Battery powered hedge cutters - for the ultimate comfort and performance.
Hedges are a great way of marking the boundary of your property, dividing the garden into separate areas or simply just as an alternative option to a flowerbed. A neatly maintained hedge can transform the overall look of a garden, however, keeping the hedge in shape using a pair of manual hedge clippers can be hard work and time consuming. The AL-KO battery powered hedge trimmers are designed to make keeping your hedges looking neat and tidy a much easier task.
What are the benefits of a cordless hedge trimmer over petrol and electric powered devices?
Cordless hedge cutters are usually much lighter than a petrol powered machine making them more comfortable to use and easier to handle and manoeuvre.
When using hedge trimmers powered by a two stroke petrol engine, you need to ensure you have fresh petrol and a suitable oil which needs to be mixed together before use whereas with a cordless device, it’s a case of simply inserting the charged battery and you are ready to get to work.
Another key benefit of a battery powered hedge cutter is that they are much quieter for a more comfortable working environment and greatly reducing disturbance which may be caused to any close neighbours
Maintaining a cordless hedge cutter is less time consuming compared to caring for a petrol powered trimmer. With no engine unit or fuel system to care for, simply keeping the unit clean and dry, ensuring that any debris or residues are wiped off the cutter blades before spraying them with a suitable lubricant will ensure that your cordless hedge cutter is ready for work as and when required.
Electric hedge trimmers are usually also lighter than petrol powered ones available making them ideal for use in smaller gardens where there is a power supply within the working area (). Cordless hedge trimmers have the advantage in that they can be used in any part of the garden without the need for an electricity supply, or worrying about accidently cutting the power cable.
