Toro 51490 Hedge Trimmer Review

The Toro 51490 hedge trimmer gives you yet another very good choice of hedger for domestic use. It has a motor that’s strong enough to tackle most types of hedges and shrubs likely to be found in any yard. Not just a powerful engine, but weighing just over 6 pounds it provides the ability to carry on working with this tool for longer periods without tiring.

The blades are long enough to give a good reach across most hedges with ease. The handles are designed to reduce fatigue in the hands and the blades designed to reduce most of any vibrations going up to the hands. A couple of thoughtful ideas that provide added comfort for the user.

The cord locking system will alleviate the annoying situation of the power cord becoming disconnected while working. Comes with a 2 year warranty.
