The convenient GARDENA Accu Hedge Trimmer HighCut 48-Li is excellently suited for easy and comfortable cutting of high hedges from a safe standing position on the ground. Thanks to the telescopic unit, the hedge trimmer can be easily extended to up to 2 metres for a range of approx. 3 metres. A tiltable head allows both the cutting of high hedgetops and groundcover. Thanks to the innovative blade unit - rotatable by 90° - you will always stand in an ideal cutting position next to the hedge – without changing the position of the hands. For convenient, cable-free trimming, the trimmer has a powerful and longlife lithium-ion Replacement Battery 18 V / 1.6 Ah. This can be recharged at any time, without memory effect and has an operating time of approx. 60 minutes. For effortless, safe and pleasant work, the hedge trimmer lies well and safely in the hand thanks to its ergonomically shaped handle. New blade geometries and laser-cut precision blades ensure an efficient, fast, clean cut. Slipping of the cut material and troublesome cutting of remaining hedge rests is significantly reduced. Thanks to the large blade opening, even thicker branches in the hedges are no problem. Your safety is important to GARDENA. The blade protector at the end of the blade protects the user from kickback when cutting close to the ground and protects the blade against damage.
