hedge trimmer stihl hsa56 batteryFor even easier garden maintenance! The Stihl HSA56 is particularly distinguished by its innovative cutting system: its teeth are, in fact, in the shape of a drop, which allows them to better catch the branches of hedges and bushes and, above all, to hold them against the blade when cutting. the cup. . Thanks to its double edge, it can also be manipulated in all directions. It also makes sure to offer the most comfortable use possible, on the one hand by being silent (no hearing protection necessary) but also by having a control handle with easy access to the on/off button. A more or less strong pressure on the rear trigger also allows to adjust the speed of the blades. Cordless hedge trimmer, it is delivered here with battery (up to 50 minutes of autonomy) as well as its charger.

My opinion : This device seems really exceptional to me! It is so well designed and efficient that I have absolutely nothing to reproach it with… and it is also the one I have adopted to maintain my land! In terms of power and cutting performance, we are clearly confident in the quality. The branches do not resist, and from the first pass they are cut, even when they are quite thick. But the detail that I appreciate above all is the weight: at 2.9 kg, it is a fairly light machine, which makes it very pleasant to handle, especially when it comes to trimming. in the air. It is also included here in a pack that includes a battery that is certainly basic, but whose autonomy is quite satisfactory so as not to feel limited in the possibilities of work. This is my favorite hedge trimmer and I highly recommend it!

And thanks to the Pivotronic system, the handle is able to rotate 180°, giving the user an optimal grip, whatever their position. Finally, it comes with 2 18V 5 Ah batteries, its charger, but also protective goggles and a blade guard.

My opinion : This battery-powered hedge trimmer from Makita ranks at the top of the range! Between its price and its features, I think it will be easier to interest professionals. But if you have a large garden, you have many hedges, different bushes and you are looking for a solid, reliable and efficient machine to maintain all this, this may also be of interest to you.

Black+Decker GTC36552PC-QW

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

battery-powered hedge trimmer black+decker gtc36552pc-qwNo branch can resist this Black+Decker! Indeed, the brand has equipped it with an optimized transmission that allows it to offer constant efficiency, even in the most robust hedges and bushes. It is also equipped with anti-jamming technology: instead of damaging the force blade, a button activates a slow but very powerful movement to cut cleanly, even when the branch is thick. As for the angle of the blades, it has been designed to bring the element to be cut as close as possible and offer an excellent cutting edge. Regarding the comfort of use, the multidirectional handle makes it easier to hold the device (both horizontally and vertically), which is also perfectly balanced. Benefiting from wireless technology, this hedge trimmer finally comes with a 36V 2 Ah battery.

My opinion : The Black+Decker GTC36552PC-QW is, in my opinion, good value for money, especially if you are specifically looking for a 36V device. I found its power to be quite sufficient for home use, and as long as your branches aren’t too thick, you’ll have no problem cutting them. For hedges it goes to nickel, also for shrubs, but when you want to tackle the young branches of stronger trees, that’s where it shows its limits. On the other hand, it makes up for it by being quite light and quite pleasant to handle. The autonomy of the battery provided is also correct, and this battery can also be used for other garden tools in the same range, such as a trimmer for example. It is a device that I can therefore fully advise you, it will be useful in your maintenance work.

Greenworks G40PSHK2

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

greenworks g40pshk2 battery hedge trimmerGreenworks G40PSHK2 is a 2-in-1 tool that combines a branch cutter and a hedge trimmer, all complemented by a telescopic pole. Thus, it makes it possible to prune or cut all the branches, effortlessly, and whatever their height, since its range remains 2.10 m and 2.40 m (depending on the equipment chosen). A really practical solution, switching between the two devices is quick and easy, without the need for tools. Both share the same included 40V 2Ah battery. On the hedge trimmer side, the handle is also rotatable for comfortable use, while on the branch cutter side, the 20 cm long bar is able to overcome most branches. At 3.6 kg and 2.9 kg respectively, they are finally light, which improves their handling.

My opinion : Greenworks offers here a really very interesting combination to take care of the garden. Indeed, although the brand speaks of “loppers”, it is indeed a motorized tool, and we are more in what I could call a mini chainsaw, pruner style. The two allied tools are therefore very useful, especially since they show good performance. For hedges it’s easy with 15 mm, or even 20 mm if the wood is soft, while for branches it cuts several centimeters without any problem. Lots of fun, especially with the extra telescopic pole! The supplied battery only allows you to have a short half-hour of autonomy, which remains quite low when you have a lot of work ahead of you. But that’s really the only flaw of this versatile and efficient device!

Bosch Easy 18-45 hedge trimmer

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

bosch easy hedge cut 18-45 battery hedge trimmerThe Bosch Easy Hedge Cut 18-45 is a battery-powered hedge trimmer designed primarily for the maintenance of young to medium-sized hedges. Thanks to its sharp diamond teeth and its 18V battery (supplied), it is in this type of branch that it guarantees the best results. Its optimal power also allows clean cuts, especially with the newly added anti-blocking system, while its low weight (only 2.3 kg) allows it to be handled without forcing it. Its ergonomic handle also facilitates working positions and the fact that it is cordless obviously offers great freedom of movement, without fear of inadvertently cutting the power cable!

My opinion : Not expensive, this Bosch Easy Hedge Cut 18-45 also has the advantage of being very light: even once the battery is installed inside, it’s incredible how well it does! The work is done effortlessly and without fatigue in the arms. These are not its only assets since it is both fairly quiet and its cut is of good quality. In old hedges, its length of 45 cm is fair enough and it costs a little more to cut thick branches, but in the others it does it very well. In any case, the brand specifies that it is made for small and medium hedges, and it is true that this is where it brings the most. If your cutting needs are not very large or you do not have a big budget, do not hesitate to let yourself be tempted by this model.
