Hedge Trimmer (Gardening Tools)

A hedge trimmer is a piece of gardening equipment used for trimming hedges. Motorized hedge trimmers allow work to be done faster and with less effort than manual ones. They are also used in agriculture as tractor attachments. Most commonly hedge trimmers are used by gardeners to trim blocks of trees or even create topiary tree shapes.

Hedge trimmers are gardening tools used to cut off excess leaves, tree branches or bush branches that are sticking out of the hedge. A hedge is a wall of trees or bushes usually trimmed from the top and the sides to form a wall-like structure. Hedge trimmers help to maintain hedges and ensure that they stay visually appealing and neat. You can buy hedge trimmers online as well as at local garden or home improvement stores.

The power source can be human power, gasoline, or electricity. The first type does not need anything to operate and is cheapest/most environmentally friendly. The former tend to be more powerful but can be heavier and more difficult to start. The latter tend to be lighter and less powerful (than gasoline variants) as well as less polluting, yet still require an electrical cord with most types. Powered hedge trimmers are generally designed with safety devices such that they work only when both of the operator's hands are on the handles.

A tractor-driven heavy duty version of trimmers exist as well (not shown), which allows easy trimming/pruning of plants and food crops. More specifically, types exist with a movable arm and types without a movable arm (relying solely on rotating blades on 2 central pivots placed on the tractor's side). These latter are used in grape-growing (for making wine), by using small tractors that drive between the grape vines.
