I need to purchase a hedge trimmer. I have the manual kind ("giant
shears") but am discovering that I have too many bushes/too little time
to keep up with this kind. Having decided to get an electric hedge
trimmer, I went online to read up and, of course, discovered that there
are a zillion makes and models and a wide price range.
What do you think is important to look for in an electric hedge
trimmer? Do you have a model you would recommend? I have a mix of
shrubs, including boxwood, yews, euonymous, spreading juniper, etc.
All are short, "edge of the walkway" shrubs, i.e., I'm not maintaining
a tall privacy hedge or anything (won't be using the trimmer on a
ladder or overhead).
All advice appreciated -- thanks in advance!
