No its like wiring a plug, twice, one half goes one each cut. Just a screwdriver, and some cutters and you are done. To be honest, the cable length should not be affected to much at all. - Good luck.

Nice find OP
Awesome. Stupidly cut mine today

You could always replace the half that goes to the plug with whatever length of suitable cable you want.

I don't want to give any advice that might get you electrocuted. When dealing with electrics it's best to play on the safe side.

I don't think you need to worry about "official cable" - your not interfering with the length that goes to the cutter. Use the joiner mentioned above to connect the cable from the cutter to a desired length of suitable mains cable.

You should be able to get some help from the staff in Screwfix or where ever.

Look, that cable masterplug connector is for providing a safe join between two bits of cable. One end goes on the bit still attached to the trimmer, the other on the bit still attached to the plug. You therefore don't end up with a shorter cable, just one with a connector in the middle. You MUST get them the right way round or you risk electrocuting yourself. If working this out is an issue, don't do it.
