Finding out if your cordless hedge trimmers are blunt yet
Before you start thinking about sharpening your cordless hedge trimmers, you should first check whether or not the blades actually need sharpening. At Einhell we use high-quality materials to make the blades of your hedge trimmer extra durable. So how do you find out whether you need to sharpen your hedge trimmers yet?
Blunt blades usually only occur with garden shears after about 50 working hours. You can recognise them quickly and easily by the cut pattern of branches and twigs. If the cutting edge is clean, the blades of your shears are still nice and sharp. But if the cuts are frayed, you should sharpen your hedge trimmers.
Besides blunt blades, there may be another problem when it comes to cutting your hedge: twigs and branches that get caught in the sword between the individual teeth and are not cut. If this is the case, the distance between the upper and lower blades of your shears is usually too large. The blades themselves may then be sharp, but still not manage to cut thicker branches or twigs. In this case, you should take your device to a specialist who can adjust the sword properly.
