I've accidentally cut through the power cord of my mum's Black and
Decker hedge trimmer thingy and just wondered if anyone knows if its
possible to replace the lead or do I have to go and buy a new trimmer?
Yes it is possible. The simplest way would be to put a plug on the cut end.
Since you have to ask it would be wise to not try it yourself but take it to
an electrician. Get your mum to take it and smile sweetly at the sparky.
Battery powered trimmers are good for cutting twigs and when the battery
dies, the replacement is about what you paid for the trimmer in the
Gas has the power, and expensive to repair, but unless you are landed
gentry, you will just piss-off the neighbors when you fire it up.
For home use, get a corded trimmer.

Don't know about UK trimmers but I have 2 in US. One has no cord and
you plug into it. Other has about 8 inch cord which would be impossible
to cut with trimmer. I've cut extension cords a couple of times and its
not brain surgery to put on a new plug. Check with your local hardware
