HT05, HT04, Gtech Hedge Trimmer Reviews

If you are looking for a really lightweight cordless hedge trimmer which is extendable (telescopic) so you can reach to cut your hedges and shrubs from the safety of the ground, the HT05 Gtech Hedge Trimmer could well tick all the boxes for you.

If you need something that is just that little bit more powerful, the HT04 is a great choice. Find out more about these two inexpensive trimmers below.

If you have never heard of Gtech before, they are a company run from a farmhouse in rural Worcestershire but which has sold millions of products globally and has a very good reputation for quality and service.

HT05 Gtech Hedge Trimmer

This telescopic trimmer has a maximum cutting reach of just over 140 cm (just over 4 ft 6 in) and as mentioned, reduces the need for the user to climb a step ladder to reach those out of the way places that need trimming.

The Sanyo Lithium Ion battery pack is very small, environmentally friendly and energy efficient. It is integral to the handle of the machine, yet packs a lot of punch and will give you about 45 minutes of use from a full charge – making it amongst the most advanced technology available from rechargeable batteries.

So what can the GTech HT05 do?

It has an articulating cutting head, allowing the 23cm blades to be rotated through 120 degrees. This allows tops of hedges and shrubs to be cut and shaped with ease. It also allows for precision as the diamond sharpened blades provide neat, accurate cutting at a blade speed of up to 1,200 rpm, whether you are cutting a simple hedge or an intricate design in topiary.

The machine is probably the lightest weight trimmer of its kind at only 3 ½ lbs or 1.6 kilos in weight. GTech say it is the lightest cordless hedge cutter available and it is certainly extremely manoeuvrable as well as very economical as even with the recent price rises from electricity suppliers, it probably still only costs a few pence a week to charge (figures quoted back in 2008 on the British Gas tariff said it cost less than 1p per week!).

Supplied with the trimmer is the 14.4 volt lithium ion battery and charger, a quick start guide and 1 year guarantee.

If you have light trimming jobs with no thick, twiggy growth or branches to cut through, the HT05 will serve you very well and get through those trimming jobs with quiet efficiency, leaving you with more time to enjoy the garden.

Amazon customer review:-

“I bought this item hoping that it would be as good as it said and I was not disappointed I’m not very tall or strong and find weilding a strimmer difficult but with this I zoomed over a llelandi hedge in no time I would recomend it to all my freinds and the best thing is no cable to drag about and add extra weight or danger of cutting through “

Bosch Aquatak 110 Pressure Washer Review

For those difficult outdoor cleaning jobs, the Bosch Aquatak 110 Pressure Washer may be just the ticket.

Removing the algae, moss and grime that makes paved surfaces slippery and dangerous (as well as unsightly), can be an extremely tiresome task, but this useful garden tool does it simply and amazingly quickly, leaving the surface pristine.

If you have tried scrubbing or chemical treatments or even wire-brushing and scraping, the sheer ease with which a pressure washer gets the job done will delight you.

Let’s face it, there are lots of cleaning jobs around outside which are a real pain and can be very time-consuming, such as cleaning paving or walls without damage. This is the province of this handy piece of equipment. Even cleaning the car goes more quickly without any damage to the paintwork from grinding dirt on the surface with a cloth or sponge.

Amazon Customer Review:-

“I am very pleased with the Power Washer. What surprised me was that it can be used with an infinitely adjustable range of pressures by selection of the choice of 3 atachments to the pressure hose. There is the single very High Pressure Jet, then the Circular Rotating Jet, and then a Low Pressure Adjustable Jet, which can be used on more delicate items. To be recommended.”
