Reviews of High-Quality Electric Hedgers
– Hedges can make your place extremely beautiful. There are hedges sculpted like a giant maze and hedges shaped like balls, owls, and humans. Some of the most magnificent places in the world are decorated with fresh, green hedges.
I believe that being able to perfectly shape and manicure a hedge takes a lot of skill. For sure, it will also require the best tool. If you maintain hedges at home and need a new and better tool for the job, I suggest the use of an electric hedger.
An electric hedger will not only save you time and effort (as opposed to using pruning shears), it also helps you achieve a perfect finish. Hedgers vary in length and power. Below are some of the best high-quality hedgers for you to check. Make sure to pick the right one for your light to heavy job.
Makita UH6570 25-Inch Electric Hedge Trimmer
Low Noise, Great Performance
The Makita electric hedger may be big and bulky, but it operates silently. It ensures less vibration to help you experience minimal to no hand fatigue. It is powered by a 4.6 amp motor (lesser than the Remington’s 5 amp motor) and has a longer blade that measures 25 1/2 inches. We can truly say that this one performs powerful cutting. It can handle branches up to 1/2 inch in thickness.
2-Hand Operation Switch
You won’t be able to operate this hedger without using your two hands. This only runs when you grip it with both hands. This feature is really useful and practical because it ensures that you’ll be able to perform the job better by increasing support.
Comfortable Grip and Transparent Hand Guard
The grip is specially designed to allow you to work with more control and ease. This is the only hedger mentioned in this review that features a nice transparent hand guard. The hand guard will help you maintain a clear view of the area you’re working on.

Earthwise 18-Inch 2.8-Amp Corded Electric 2-in-1 Pole/Hand-held Hedge Trimmer, Model CVPH41018
Hedge Trimmer/Pole Hedge Trimmer (2-in-1)
This unique electric hedger can actually be converted into a pole hedger for hard to reach areas such as overhead branches. Buying this offer by Earthwise allows you to save a lot of money in buying a separate pole hedger.
This is powered by a 2.8 amp electric motor and has a long, 18-inch blade that resists breakage. Like the Makita electric hedger, this one can handle 1/2 inch thick branches easily. When using the pole hedger, you don’t need to use a ladder. It can reach overhead branches 4 1/2 feet high.
It has a rotating head (up to 150 degrees) to help you trim difficult areas.
The Earthwise electric hedger has a nice comfortable handle that allows you to easily maneuver it.

Black & Decker TR117 3.2-Amp Hedge Trimmer, 17-Inch
Smaller but Better
Although the blade of the B&D electric hedger measures 17 inches in length (shorter than the 24-inch Remington and the 18-inch GreenWorks), it remains super effective in trimming hedges. It is powered by a 3.2 amp electric motor (higher amp than the GreenWorks’ 2.7 amp) that enables you to cut like a pro.
Many claim that this tool really cuts like butter. No doubt about that when it comes to any B&D gardening tool. Actually, this one’s a no.1 bestseller. Because it’s smaller, it weighs very light – 4.3 pounds only. I think this would make a great gift for a woman who has a small garden of hedges.
Ensures Comfort and Safety
This one works quietly and is very easy to operate. To prevent accidental start-up, it has a hassle-free lock-off switch. It also provides a cord retention feature to help avoid accidental unplugging. This will allow you to work all day long without any worries of losing power. The B&D electric hedger blade has a dual-action. It produces 40% less vibrations than a hedger with a single action blade.

- Rust-resistant steel blades
- Warranty: 2 years
- Trims 5/8-inch thick branches
If you want something with more motor power, go for electric hedgers with that run on motors with higher amperes.
If you want a hedger with higher amp and longer blade, I suggest that you choose the Makita 4.6-amp with 25 inches blade. I like the Makita because it can cut thicker branches and has a nice transparent hand guard.
For something that’s small yet powerful, I would suggest the Black & Decker 3.2-amp hedger. It cuts like a pro which is why it remains to be the bestseller. It also produces only minimal vibrations to prevent fatigue.
