Yey another boys toy.
I spend hours trimming the hedge around my manor. I also love the smell of 2-stroke exhaust from my Trabantz. This is a win-win for me
If only i had a hedge

Please don't buy this. These cheap petrol goods won't last five minutes. False economy.

I suspect you are right.

Believe it or not, some people do have gardens with hedges that need trimming year after year. It's a complete pain in the but when you accidentally cut through the cord, again, and the hedge is too big for a battery trimmer to cope with.

I bought a challenger (Argos or B&Q) brand trimmer similar to this and the clutch/blades/engine were all cracker-toy cheap.





the blades were the worst. made with no finesse at all they would often just bend twigs and leaves inbetween blades instead of actually cutting them.





Much better off getting a used branded trimmer on eBay or gumtree, or just spending more.





how much is a machete? (_;)

cheap rubbish.
get electric if you can,

picked up my old one after 4-5 years of not using it, and it just worked. Did some trimming for 10mins and then carried on with my day.
Thanks for all the pointless posts from people who don't own and have never used this product telling me how bad it is, maybe your clairvoyance could be put to better use on TV?
As for electric, they are reasonable for a small or medium garden. Mine is narrow, but nearly 200ft long which makes cables more than a bit of a chore. Horses for courses as they say.
Cool. Just need to grow a hedge now.
For this price.. 1 or 2 years . good find thanks. I have the Aldi one. If not . I would get this one.. perfect for a small garden.

I got the battery one from lidl, only problem with petrol is the the vibrations and the weight.
This or a Philishave?

You can use it to trim a bush too
Do we have any feedback from anybody who ACTUALLY owns one of these instead of throwing wild guesses into the comments??

Yes I had one. 26cc engine turned out to be most unsuitable for the task at hand, if you know what I mean

I picked mine up today, does the job brilliantly, did the whole length of my garden on one fill of petrol, love the smell of 2-stroke!! Not much heavier than an electric version. Even if it isn't durable screwfix will replace it no fuss in the first year.

Sorry I was just trolling you. My apologies! (_;)
Don't listen to folks saying cheap petrol stuff doesn't last. I'm always getting cheap eBay petrol gardening items "non running" they just need tuned 90% of the time or just a bit of fuel line.

Anything petrol powered is going to be more powerful than electric. I don't think I've had to sharpen my blades for years. An besides you still need to sharpen them on electric ones too.

Up until a few years ago I would have agreed. After 10 years my McCulloch petrol strimmer give up. Having a garden that's about third of an acre I need a petrol strimmer and thought I will buy a cheap one from Tesco expecting it to last a couple of years. 5 years on its still going. Starts second pull every time from cold, first pull when hot, unlike the expensive McCulloch. It's far better in every way and was half the price. Sometimes cheap Chinese stuff is good as well as cheap.
