I'm looking into the possibility of buying a hedge trimmer and would appreciate any advice on which manufacturers you would recommend or not as the case may be. I'm after a petrol model rather than electric and want something that is fairly lightweight but reasonably powerful. I have a long handled hedge trimmer so am looking for a hedge trimmer with a blade approx. 202-24inches. I have a fairly low but long hedge to cut. Look at spending approx. £250 rather than £500 as I'm not a professional gardener using it day in and day out.. Any advice appreciated.
