With its telescopic handle, which extends up to 3 metres, and a 16mm cutting capacity, the Flymo Sabre Cut XT cordless long reach hedge trimmer is ideal for cutting taller hedges.
The major advantage of the Sabre Cut XT is that it is cordless, giving freedom of movement without the worry or inconvenience of trailing electric cables. It also means that you won’t have to endure the noise of a petrol machine.
The lightweight telescopic handle is adjustable, enabling you to reach a height of 9m, with both feet planted firmly on the ground. The tilting blade can be adjusted up to 90 degrees to the shaft, with fifteen different positions, enabling you to cut the top of taller hedges.
The Sabre Cut has 42cm long diamond-ground twin-action blades, with a tooth gap/cutting capacity of 16mm – making it ideal for coping with light to medium growth. A word of warning, however. If you have thicker growth on your hedges, then this model would probably not be suitable – look for one with a bigger cutting capacity
Like many long reach hedge trimmers, the Sabre Cut can be used both vertically and horizontally, for cutting hedges and for clearing ground cover while still standing upright – putting less strain on your back.
