We listed a handful of factors you should consider in our buying guide section above. Some of the factors include blade length, corded/cordless/gas-powered models, weight, handles, blade-teeth, safety switches, etc.
Yes, it's possible to trim a hedge too much. This often occurs when you prune the hedge too early and end up removing the greenery of the hedge. The consequence may be the stunted growth of the hedge.
This depends on your location and the species of hedge you have on your property. Popular hedges like privet can be trimmed twice or thrice yearly between May and September when it grows more often. Other species may require frequent trimming. Be sure not to cut away all the greeny.
In some situations, a chainsaw may suffice. However, it's not as efficient as a hedge trimmer in dealing with the hedge. Thus, we recommend sticking to the hedge trimmer and keeping the chainsaw for your wood cutting tasks. Imagine using a hedge-trimmer to saw through pieces of wood.
