How To Hang Hedge Trimmer

Hanging a hedge trimmer can be a daunting task, but with the right tools and instructions, it can be easy. In this article, we’ll show you how to hang a hedge trimmer using the most common methods and tools.

Identification of the Hedge Trimmer

There is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to identifying a hedge trimmer. Some key factors you’ll want to consider include: the type of hedge trimmer, its size and power, and whether it has an adjustable blade.


The most common type of hedge trimmer is the cordless variety. These machines typically have a size that ranges from about 18 inches to 24 inches in length, with an average blade width of about 1 inch. Cordless hedge trimmers are usually powered by an electric battery or a gas engine.


Hedge trimmers that use an attached blade are usually smaller in size and are usually only used for cutting around the edges of hedges. They typically have a blade width of about 0.8 inch to 2 inches and a length of about 12 inches. Some hedge trimmers also have an adjustable blade that allows you to customize the width of the cut.


When choosing a hedge trimmer, make sure to read the operator’s manual thoroughly before using the machine. This will help you understand the specific requirements for using the machine, such as how long it takes to charge the battery and how often you should oil or clean the chain or blades.

Checking and Adjusting the Blade

If the hedge trimmer is not cutting the hedges evenly, it is likely that the blade is not adjusted correctly. Follow these steps to check and adjust the blade:

  1. Open the throttle all the way to avoid getting gas in your engine compartment.


  1. Hold the hedge trimmer at a 45-degree angle and look for a spot on the blade where the two blades meet.


  1. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to adjust the blade so that the spot meets midway between the two blades. Tighten or loosen the screw until the hedge trimmer cuts evenly again.

Hanging the Hedge Trimmer

One of the most important steps in keeping your hedge trimmer running smoothly is ensuring that it is always properly hung. This can be a bit of a challenge, but with a few simple steps, you can get the job done quickly and easily.


The first step is to find a sturdy location for the hedge trimmer. You don’t want it swinging around and hitting things while it’s operating, so find a spot where it will be stationary.


Next, line up the blade of the hedge trimmer against the anchor point on the wall or post. Make sure that the blade is parallel to the surface that it’s being attached to, and make sure that the anchor is tight against the wall or post.


Now, use some wire cable ties to secure the hedge trimmer to the anchor point. Make sure that the ties are tight enough so that there’s minimal movement of the hedge trimmer, but not so tight that they damage or damage the hedge trimmer.


Finally, add some additional padding if needed to ensure that your hedge trimmer doesn’t hit anything when it’s in use.

Felling the Hedge Trimmer

The process is simple:


  1. Remove the blade from the hedge trimmer.
  2. Loosen the bolt that holds the handle onto the shaft.
  3. Lift the handle off of the shaft and set it aside.
  4. Take the blade and place it against the side of the shaft opposite from where the bolt was loosened.
  5. Strike against the blade with a hammer to fracture the shaft near where it was tightened against the blade.
  6. Keep striking until the blade breaks off of the shaft, then remove it from the trimmer.

Cleaning the Hedge Trimmer

Hedge trimmers sometimes accumulate grass, leaves, and other debris as they’re used. Here are a few simple tips on how to clean the hedge trimmer:


  1. Disconnect the power cord from the hedge trimmer.
  2. Remove the blade and guard.
  3. Clean the cutter head and guards in hot, soapy water.
  4. Rinse off the components with fresh water and dry them with a soft cloth or a paper towel.
  5. Reconnect the power cord and replace the blade and guard.
