How to tell if your hedge trimmer needs sharpening
Is your hedge trimmer no longer as effective as it used to be? This is not uncommon: frequent use blunts the cutter blades so they need sharpening. It is possible that the problem arises from a different issue though, so check the following symptoms to quickly deduce the likely cause:
Branches keep getting jammed in the trimmer
If you are noticing a tendency for branches to get stuck between the teeth during trimming, so they block the tool without being cut, this suggests that the upper and lower blades of the hedge trimmer are no longer meeting rather than indicating a need for sharpening. It happens because the spacers between the blades wear out over time Your dealer can fix this by replacing the spacers for you.
Branches are not cut cleanly
If your petrol or electric hedge trimmer leaves behind an uneven and frayed edge as it cuts, this indicates that you need to sharpen the hedge trimmer blades. You can go to one of our Dealers for hedge trimmer sharpening, or alternatively you can get the tool back into peak condition by yourself – with a little patient effort.
