I am about to buy a long handled cordless hedge trimmer to cut my nine foot hedges I'm thinking these will be lighter to use than petrol ones would like some advice on best ones to buy



Buy in person from a garden centre where you can test the weight. Bear in mind that the battery packs for cordless electrical items can be heavy.
Or get someone in to cut your hedges down to waist/hip height and then you only need to use shears.

I have just bought a Mountfield cordless strimmer which can also have a hedge trimmer option and am very pleased with it. I wouldn't go to a garden center as I find that their products are very lightweight models and not up to much really hard use. If you can find a business that specialises in mowers, chainsaws strimmers etc in your area their products will be a little more expensive but will last much longer and the staff will be much more knowledgeable about them.
