would anybody be able to recommend
a long reach hedge cutter must be electric,quality and value for money,hope you can help.



i cant recomend a make thow your generaly safe with a named make like black and decker .i would however get a cordless one as the cables are so easy to cut threw bye accident .if you do buy a cabled one definatly get a surge plug to protect you from if you cut the cable .

The trouble with cordless ones, and I've done this several times, is to over charge and ruin the battery. Provided you keep the cable behind you and have a circuit breaker on it you should be ok. Mending a cable is easy enough but a new battery can be expensive. Other than that I'm sorry because mine is petrol. If it says wear ear protection, unlikely on electric cutters, but wear it.
