There are two distinct types of hedge trimmer, and the one that you will likely be familiar with is the standard hedge trimmer such as the Husqvarna 122HD45 petrol powered trimmer. Regular hedge trimmers are perfect for pruning the bushes and shrubs around your garden, trimming away any unruly leaves or very thin branches. But if your greenery is tall and out of reach, you might have a hard time reaching the area without the help of an extendable hedge trimmer. The STIHL HLA 66 is an extremely popular STIHL long reach hedge trimmer, able to reach way overhead and efficiently prune those hard to reach bushes. It’s perfectly balanced design and intuitive controls make it one of the best long reach hedge trimmers for both domestic and professional users.

Which is the best cordless long reach hedge trimmer? The best pole hedge trimmer for your needs will depend on whether you’re a professional user or domestic user. Professionals will usually look for high power and long operation times, in which case a petrol hedge trimmer such as the Husqvarna 525HE4 is a good choice. This four metre long hedge trimmer is extremely powerful with a high speed cutting ability and reliable engine, making it perfect for commercial use come rain or shine. If you’re a home gardener, your best option would be a lightweight cordless hedge trimmer. The Husqvarna 120i TK4-H is superbly lightweight, well-balanced and its excellent ergonomics allow you to comfortably and confidently operate, even if it’s your first time picking up a telescopic hedge trimmer. It is also extremely quiet, making it one of the best battery powered hedge trimmers for use in domestic areas.

If you’re looking to invest in a new tool for your garden, you may well find yourself comparing a pole saw vs hedge trimmer. The best option between the two will depend on what you’re trying to achieve in your gardening endeavours; a pole saw is ideally used for removing tall branches and changing the overall shape of the hedge, but if you don’t need to remove sizeable branches then an extendable hedge trimmer is perfect for refining the shape of a bush. Whether you’re rounding a shrub or squaring it off, a hedge trimmer provides a superior level of control and precision, allowing you to trim away exactly what is needed and nothing more.

What hedge trimmer has the longest reach? Most hedge trimmers have a maximum reach of approximately four metres. However, some pole hedge trimmers such as the Stihl HLA 86 or Husqvarna 520i HT4 have a telescopic pole, meaning their reach can be adjusted based on the task at hand. This makes telescopic trimmers much more versatile as well as comfortable to use. A STIHL hedge trimmer such as the HLA 56 has a fixed length, providing more rigidity and strength along the pole which instils more confidence when operating the machine.

Trimming shrubbery above head height comes with some inherent risks, therefore a chainsaw helmet is always recommended along with eye protection and any other PPE you would usually wear when operating garden machinery.
