Tanaka TCH22E-AP2 (50) Petrol Hedgetrimmer
The Tanaka TCH22E-AP2 (50) Petrol Hedgetrimmer is one of the lightest hedegetrimmers in its class. It is powered by a 21.1 cc two-stroke engine which develops 0.87 hp and is backed up by the company’s acclaimed Pure Fire technology, which apparently keeps emissions and fuel consumption at a very low level.
The compact 0.3 L fuel tank holds enough fuel to keep you going for a long period of time without topping up. Tanaka’s S start ignition system means the engine will fire up with the gentlest of pull on the starting recoil cord.
The Tanaka TCH22E-AP2 (50) Petrol Hedgetrimmer is fitted with a 50 cm double reciprocating blade which is large enough to keep domestic hedges under control. It is important to always buy a double reciprocating blade as I have found the single blades to be very painful. The reason being that you can only cut one way, whereas with a double reciprocating blade you are cutting with up and down movements, which saves a lot of time.
There is a generous gap on the blade of 30 cm which will enable you to cut thicker branches without causing bruising and twisting. If hedges cut annually, this should be more than enough clearance to cope with your average garden hedge.
The Tanaka TCH22E-AP2 (50) Petrol Hedge trimmer features a rear handle that twists 180° making it very useful if you are left-handed or cutting in awkward corners. This is probably a feature that I wouldn’t expect to find on a £219 hedge cutter.
