Double side blade speeds trimming

AS all gardeners appreciate, trimming and pruning jobs can be drawn out operations.

To speed up the work, Spaldings Truecraft professional hedge trimmer has a double-sided blade which can cut both to the left and to the right.

Power comes from a 20cc 2-stroke engine – designed, says the manufacturer, for easy starting and low maintenance – with a gearbox drive to the blade.

Price £299 (01522-500600).
