The birds have built their nests and are sitting on their eggs. Soon they will be busy feeding the young and then teaching them to fly. Now is not the time to whizz up and down with a hedge trimmer. But before you know it, the birds will have flown and there will be a rush to tidy up the growth and restore hedges to their function and beauty. When that time comes, what type of trimmer will you use?
“The hedge trimmer market has seen an increased emphasis on battery in recent years, more so than other product categories. Due to the nature of hedge trimming and the constant manoeuvring that goes with it, users are recognising the many benefits that battery brings — especially when you consider that there are no emissions, the products are lower in weight, produce less vibration and emit much lower noise levels’’
