Every homeowner with a garden wants a high and dense hedge, which protects against prying eyes. However, the shrubs require intensive care. Depending on the type of crop, several cuts are required in the summer and before the fall, otherwise the hedge will be out of shape. The higher the hedge becomes, the more difficult the cutting becomes. Since acrobatic deposits on a rickety ladder often lead to accidents, we recommend an electric telescopic hedge trimmer for high hedges. Thanks to the telescopic pole, even hedges several meters high can be cut evenly and with little effort. But when buying there are some things to consider.

Everything for the garden: Electric telescopic hedge trimmer Video Guide

The electric version of the telescopic hedge trimmer consists of a telescopic pole that can be extended to a length of two and five meters, depending on the model. At the upper end of the pole, the sword of the hedge trimmer is attached. The sword should be at least as long as half the width of the hedge. In this way, the hedge can be trimmed cleanly and without residue when cutting on both sides. Most devices have a cutting length between 25 and 60 centimeters.

An important part of the electric telescopic hedge trimmer is the joint that connects rod and cutting tool. The cutting angle can be set via the joint, which is indispensable for straight and clean cuts. In some hedge trimmers, the adjustment of the cutting angle is infinitely possible. Other models, such as the Ikra THS 500 Pro Flexo Trim, work with fixed six or seven stages. At the lower end of the telescopic pole is the handle with the operation of the hedge trimmer. The power button should have a safety feature that prevents the hedge trimmer from being turned on accidentally. Some telescopic hedge trimmers also have a shoulder strap. He considerably simplifies the work with the garden tool weighing several kilos. Also of advantage is an adjustable additional handle, as it offers, for example, the Einhell electric rod hedge trimmer. It provides additional stability during hedge trimming.

If there are large trees in the house garden next to the hedge that need to be cut, it may be worth buying a combi unit. Such a 2-in-1 device, for example, has manufacturer Matrix on offer. It is a combination of a high-unloader and a hedge trimmer. By simply changing the tool heads, hedges can be cut and trimmed trees and bushes thinned with one and the same device. Further combination possibilities are offered by the Bosch DIY drive unit AMW 10 with hedge cutter attachment. The hedge trimmer from Bosch comes with the matching attachments to the chainsaw or the grass trimmer.

For hedges with thick branches, the electric telescopic hedge trimmer should have a sufficient cutting thickness and a powerful motor. In any case, a motor power of more than 500 watts is recommended. No less important is the weight of the electric telescopic hedge trimmer. This may be 5, 6 and more kilograms on some models, which can be too heavy for women and the elderly in the long run. Recommended are models with a total weight of well below 5 kilograms. This applies, for example, to the Hecht 640 electric telescopic hedge trimmer with 4.2 kilograms.

+ safe hedge trimming without a ladder + high places are easy to reach + in some models several functions in one device – partly heavy weight
