The HHH25D Hedgecutter from Honda Power Equipment is a first four-stroke hedgecutter and makes light work of this laborious task by quickly and efficiently reducing cutting time. The Hedgecutter is suitable for heavy duty cutting and can safely slice through branches up to 8 mm thick, considerably more than a traditional hedgetrimmer.
Powered by Honda's renowned 0.81 kW, 360 degree inclinable GX25 mini four-stroke engine as featured in its garden shed companions, the HHB25 Leaf blower and UMK425 Brushcutter, the GX25 provides smooth power delivery no matter what the angle.
Another innovative feature of the HHH25D Hedgecutter is the triple action cutting system and vibration-reducing frame which dramatically decreases fatigue during operation. The unit also uses a large easy-to-grip handle that can be rotated from centre to 90 degrees left and right, to provide a comfortable operating position to suit all tasks. The 720 mm long cutting blade on the HHH25D Hedgecutter is double sided and designed to allow the operator to cut in both left and right directions, minimising job time and ensuring a smooth, even finish.
According to Honda Power Equipment Manager, Ray Briffa, the HHH25D Hedgecutter is easy to use and extremely responsive. The easy-starting Hedgecutter provides brisk blade acceleration and instant throttle response delivering plenty of power from idle.
The HHH25D Hedgecutter offers the gardener many benefits over its two-stroke competitors. Featuring advanced four-stroke technology, the Hedgecutter is extremely fuel-efficient and produces considerably less exhaust emissions than a two-stroke, while noise emission levels are the lowest in its class. In the long term, the savings made from reduced fuel consumption particularly at today's fuel prices, coupled with Honda's renowned durability provides excellent whole of life costing.
As well as these environmental and cost benefits, the HHH25D Hedgecutter is light and compact, tipping the scales at a very manageable 6.9kg, a weight comparable with the two-stroke trimmers. The HHH25D Hedgecutter will start easily every time, as it is designed with an exhaust side decompressor, a low-load recoil starter and superior four-stroke engine technology.
Briffa also said that overall the Honda Hedgecutter is well suited for both the domestic green thumb and the professional gardening contractor, providing reliable and efficient cutting for the most robust of hedges. Only Honda offer an advanced four-stroke garden care range that includes lawnmowers, brushcutters, tillers, and a hedgecutter and leafblower.
