Hyundai HYT2318 Petrol Hedge Trimmer Review

If you’re thinking of getting a petrol hedge trimmer that combines excellent ergonomics, robust design and versatility, then the Hyundai HYT2318 is the way to go. This trimmer is ideal for the more challenging end of the domestic hedge trimming market, and is ideally suited to cutting large hedges. Strong performance and long lasting power are just the tip of the iceberg of what to expect when you get yours hands on this bit of kit.

  • Features an easy recoil start and a primer fuel system
  • The rear handle is adjustable enabling you to cut both the sides and top of your hedges
  • Features an auto return stop switch that ensures the stop switch automatically returns to the start position when the machine is turned off, which in turn makes for easier starting the next time you use the trimmer
  • The cutting bar is extensively long (45cm) to reach to greater lengths and heights

  • It delivers high power at a remarkably low displacement and weight
  • The handles ability to rotate to an angle of 180 degrees makes trimming in every orientation easy

The long and short of it is that petrol hedge trimmers are good for harder tasks since they are more powerful.

It is the perfect choice for home owners and landscapers / gardeners alike.
