Perhaps rashly I have agreed to trim an NHS neighbour's hedge this year (below), so I need a hedge trimmer - which I just about arguably needed anyway as my garden is maturing. I am now a Makita shop by default. Can anyone advise what sort of weapon is required. The was laid about 5 years ago. It is hawthorn. I can just about touch the security mirror shown standing on the ground so I am guessing the hedge is perhaps 8ft, and only a single garden width. The lane is quiet if I choose my time, and I do have a scaffold tower and ladders available if required. The last time I bought a hedge trimmer it was 12" or 14", powered and very expensive for cordless. They now seem to have one handed grass trimmers which convert (eg Makita DUM604ZX), something cordless, and ones with blades up to 2 feet long (eg Makita DUH523Z) which looks like a sawfish. It may be that a good option is a small trimmer plus secateurs. Or one of the longer ones. TBH for my own use I would struggle to justify the 2ft long one. Thanks. Ferdinand
