Which type of hedge trimmer is right for me?
Overall, the kind of trimmer that is right for you will depend on your needs and what you value most. If you need a lot of power, then a gas-powered hedge trimmer is the way to go. If you have an interest in environment-friendly options, then the electric trimmers are absolutely worth looking into. If you don’t want to drag around a cord, then a battery-powered hedge trimmer is going to be the ideal fit.
