I have a couple of questions that I need answers to before I run out and purchase a new hedge clipper.
My first question is: Should I go with a corded or battery powered one?
I have never had any type of battery operated tool (other than a drill) that was worth a d@mn .. battery wears out quickly or doesn't hold a charge for long and is usually underpowered.
My other question is: What length blade is ideal?
I have be using a cr@ppy little 16 inch blade for a few years and it really sucks using it on my four foot wide hedges!
I am not really sure what length blades are available?
Simple as they are, those are my two questions that I hope some of you can help me with.
Ideal length of blade?
Battery-operated ones blow. And if you go with cord-operated, you’ll end up wishing you bought a gas-operated one in a couple months. (Unless you really don’t have much work to do).
two cycle gas.
Cords a pain and you will nick or cut it for sure
Some models you can add attachments to
Go to Amazon.com, enter the product you are interested in and read the reviews. There are hundreds of them.
Thank You all for your responses.
My problem with the gas powered and why I failed to mention them was .. I’m poor! 8)
Those things are usually over my pay grade! 8(
Every electric hedge clipper eventually becomes a cordless one...............
Check out your local rent all store. How often would you use one? Once a year?
Bite the bullet,you’ll be glad you did.
Excellent idea.you win
As someone who has cut through my own cord on more than one occasion (with results that resembled Roy Hobbs driving that ball into the light tower) I vote for battery.
I speak from experience...................
I can relate.the folks had one and there is a 50 foot cord around here full of nicks cuts and splices
or call your local library.
I know I have the choice not to read your posts, but If I don't protest, how would you know?
Crapped Mothers Day I suppose
why not address the issue, just like the rats, you attack the messenger.

I’ve done that more than once.
