The Black and Decker 420W hedge trimmer is a good value, durable machine from one of the most respected and well-known names in power tools. With its 420W motor and 45cm blade, this lightweight model is ideal for trimming bushes, smaller hedges and small tree branches.
The 16mm blade gap means that there is a limit to the thickness of branch that this machine will cut, and may mean recourse to loppers for thicker branches (over 16mm).
Weighing just 2.1 kg (4.6 lbs) this is one of the lightest hedge trimmers available, which makes it suitable for prolonged use without putting too much strain on your arms and shoulders, especially when reaching up to cut higher branches.
Comfortable to Use
Ergonomically designed to feel comfortable and secure in use. Its dual-action asymmetric blades help reduce vibration, improving control and smoothness in operation.
