In this section of the website, we’re taking a look at the wide range of petrol hedge cutters available for you to buy in the UK.
Why Choose A Petrol Over An Electric Trimmer?
The main advantage of a petrol model over an electric one is that you can use it anywhere. There’s no need to plug in as it’s powered by a small fuel tank built into the product. Of course, all makes and models vary in terms of what they can do and how they perform, so below you’ll find a run down of the petrol hedge cutter manufacturers, linking through to the models they’ve got on offer.
If you have a smaller garden and access to power outside (even via an open window), you may prefer to check out our electric trimmers section.
Petrol Hedge Cutter Brands
As you might expect, the companies making hedge trimmers are numerous, and some will be big popular brands that you’re familiar with, whereas others are considerably less well known. That doesn’t necessarily mean you should only ever buy from companies you’ve heard of, but the bigger brands might well offer better and more efficient after sales service as their brand name is something they want associated with quality.
Let’s go through these companies one by one.
