Let handle bend and not your body
ASSUMING awkward body angles when hedge cutting is not only uncomfortable, it is potentially dangerous.
Those with the responsibility for this job will perhaps welcome the introduction by Countax of the Elho HCR1500 hedgecutter, which is fitted with a 49.9cm (1.4ft) double-sided, double-reciprocating blade, with a handle that adjusts into five positions to allow work to continue in awkward areas – safely.
Power comes from a 21.2cc 2-stroke engine with electronic ignition and the HCR1500 weighs 5kg. Price £297.02p (01844-278800).
