We carry a wide selection of cordless, mains electric and petrol powered hedgecutters by manufacturers Alko, Bosch, Ego, Mitox, Mountfield, Stiga, Stihl and Tanaka.
For lighter duty work the electric machines are convenient and light to use. This type of machine will typically cope with branches of 13 – 20mm diameter (some claim to be capable of cutting up to 34mm branches but we would recommend purchasing a petrol machine for this work as the drive gears are much more substantial). They require little maintenance but are hindered in use by the mains cable and the need for a convenient electricity supply. It is always recommended that an RCD safety device be used with these machines as it is extremely easy to cut the cord in use.
Cordless machines are now becoming very popular as they are less complicated to start, require less maintenance and do not suffer from long term storage problems associated with petrol. They are also much quieter and generally lighter than petrol machines and have no cord to cut restrict them – or cut!
Cordless machines can be lightweight for smaller tasks but can also be built for heavy domestic and professional use.
Prices range from £89.00 to 159.00
Priced at £119.00
The Alko machines feature a special safety cable which cannot be cut by the hedgecutter blades (a problem encountered by many a customer!)
Budget cordless or battery powered machines are generally suitable for light cutting. There are a number of higher quality cordless machines now available that can rival some of the petrol machines. Our most popular has been the Mountfield 48v Lithium Ion range. Their 24″ hedgecutter is priced at £237.00 complete with battery and charger but the unit alone is £159.00 The battery and charger with power several other tools in their range. Stiga also offer new 500 series products with a very capable 58cm SHT500AE and Ego offer a range of 6 machines covering the high end domestic market through to full professional machines.
For the gardener who requires a heavier duty machine, the petrol machines generally offer more robust blades and gearboxes and are suitable for more prolonged use. The better quality machines can cope with branches of over 25mm diameter.
We offer a range of over 15 petrol hedgetrimmers including the Stihl, Tanaka, and Mitox ranges. Prices of the quality petrol machines range from £239.00 to £539.00.
The Tanaka TCH22EBP2 is now our most popular model and has a top quality 22cc engine with 24″ cut at £275.00.

Pole Hedgecutters are increasingly popular for high and awkward hedges. The cutting heads can usually be adjusted through a range of angles and they are a safe and convenient alternative to balancing on a ladder or constructing scaffolding. We stock a wide range of machines with prices starting at only £159.00 for a budget petrol powered tool but better quality units will cost in excess of £450.00. Hedgetrimmer attachments can also be fitted to standard brushcutters or can be purchased as part of a combi-system where one engine unit can be used for, strimming / brushcutting, hedgecutting, pruning and lawn edging. One of the most popular options is to buy the Tanaka TBC2390 Brushcutter at £249 and the pole hedgecutter attachment THT200 at £209 giving you a high quality dual purpose product at a reasonable price.
