5 benefits of a cordless hedge trimmer

When purchasing a hedge trimmer, there will be an abundance of products on the market to choose from. With a seemingly endless amount of choice, you may find yourself questioning whether to go corded or spend a few extra pounds on a cordless machine?

We’re here to help with your decision. Whilst both corded and cordless hedge trimmers have their advantages below we focus on five advantages Flymo cordless hedge trimmers have to offer.

1) Cordless Freedom 

The most obvious benefit of our cordless range is the freedom they offer of course. Cordless hedge trimmers like the SabreCut XT Cordless 18V are powered using batteries, providing you with the freedom to roam around your garden without the trailing cables. If you’ve ever found yourself muttering under your breath whilst avoiding the wire of your hedge, or even worse accidentally cutting through the cable (we’ve all been there) a cordless machine may just be for you. 

2) Extremely Lightweight and easy to use 

Complete freedom of movement is also enhanced by the lightweight quality of all Flymo’s cordless products. These machines give you the flexibility to move easily around your garden, making trimming both quick and effective. No wires, no fuss! Operation is quick meaning you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy doing other things in your garden. 

3) Quiet operation
 
Our cordless products are also much quieter, meaning you are working in a more pleasant environment whilst maintaining your hedges. It also removes the need (in most cases) to wear ear protectors when in use. Products such as the Flymo EasiCut Cordless 420’s sound pressure level at the operators ear is a lower 71.3 dB(A) than the majority of electric and petrol products. 

4) Interchangeable batteries 

Still not swayed? Flymo’s cordless product range all possess batteries that are interchangeable between products. This means that you can use the battery from your grass trimmer in your hedge trimmer of the same voltage. You can also buy additional spare batteries if needed. This helps increase the run/cut time of your hedge trimmer as you can have one on charge when using the other. 

5) The SabreCut XT Cordless’ extendable reach
 
Flymo’s most recent cordless model, the aforementioned SabreCut XT Cordless 18V, comes with a lightweight adjustable handle meaning extended reach whilst operating. With a reach of 3 metres whilst standing safely on the ground the SabreCut demonstrates a level of flexibility that gardeners dream of. With the ability to reach the top of hedges without having to use ladders or bend down low to cut awkward areas, the SabreCut boasts safety above all else. There is no longer a need to carry ladders to the garden as this product proves safe and efficient, making sharp work of tall hedges.
