The Draper 500W 230V Hedge Trimmer – Stock No.03465, was tested in a feature on plot clearance, that appeared in the November 2014 edition of Grow Your Own Magazine.
“Weighing in at 2.5kg it is noticeable how lightweight this hedge cutter is. As these tools go, it is a very simple example. There are no bells or whistles here, but in a way that is what makes it appealing. Simply plug in, squeeze the trigger and you’re away without any hassle. The blade is 50cm long, which is sufficient for the average plot – the recommendation for the cutting blade is that material up to 16mm in width can be cut. The obvious point to consider here is can you get to your area with an extension lead or do you need a petrol version? The construction is average and it will last as long as you resist the temptation to push it too hard.”
Practicality – 4/5.
Durability – 3/5.
Value – 3/5.
