Long reach powerful hedge cutter
Powerful 1,000W motor unit, quick fit connection to attachment
Powerful long reach hedge cutter, combining the AMW10 Multi-tool motor unit with the fully adjustable hedge cutter attachment means you are able to cut large tall hedges with ease and often from ground level taking away the need for a ladder.
The total reach is 2,360mm. These tools are part of the AMW10 Multi-tool system where the motor unit can be interchanged with attachments to save space, time and money. All attachments simply fit to the shaft with a quick fit tool-less connection.
The 1,000W motor unit and shaft with ‘D’ shaped handle is adjustable for the best working position. There is also a padded shoulder strap and hanging hook for easy storage. The hedge cutter is fully adjustable so that the head can be angled up to 360°, so suitable for overhead cutting.
Pole saw and line trimmer attachment also available as well as 700mm extension pole for even greater reach.

Second Thoughts - I was too kindI have just re-read my review of some two years ago. While I tried hard to keep it a balanced and objective report, after two seasons' use I would like to add the following: The inclusion of the words "effortless" and "ergonomic" in the description are very far from the truth. To be considered effortless, you would need a very well behaved hedge of low or medium height and width and a powerful tool (pass) of light (fail!) weight. Using the AMW10 is often exhausting. As for ergonomic, even assembling the components fails that test. Ergonomic in use? Forget it, it is the most unwieldy tool I have ever come across. Lifting and positioning for a high cut is quite strenuous, guiding and untangling if it gets caught up is often difficult.

Not sharp as boughtHaving had difficulty forcing the hedge cutter attachment through an overgrown laurel hedge, I inspected the cutting blades under a magnifying glass and found them to be rather blunt, as bought. To sharpen the two opposing cutters one must be able to separate them and clamp them on a workbench to apply the necessary file. There seems to be no easy way to do this. Has anyone successfully sharpened the cutting edges on this hedge trimmer? Why the hell is there nothing in the user leaflet about sharpening the blades? Surely having sharp cutting edges is fundamental to the safe and efficient use of cutting tools.

Heavy, clumsy and awkwardThis seemed the answer to my prayers, particularly as I have a moderately high (? 8ft) but rather wide hedge. Strongly recommend anyone considering this to think very carefully:

Not for heavy duty workThis is a well made piece of kit. It looks like it is built to last. The pole fit together easily and very quickly.
