Kuhn has slotted a new hedgecutter model, the 5.5m reach Poly-Longer, between its big Pro-Longer model and the smaller Agri-Longer.

It comes with either single-lever, on-off electronic controls or electronic proportional control from a joystock. The standard head is a 1.2m unit and manual side-shift provides a reach from 5m when centred to 5.5m when fully shifted. Starting price is £19,250. Though the badge on the hedgecutter pictures says Multi-Longer, this is actually the Poly Longer.
