q: Does the head rotate enough to square off the tops of hedges at least three meters high?
a: Yes the head would rotate enough, but you'd most likely require a work platform especially if the plant is a tougher variety.

q: Re the Flash Long reach hedge trimmer, can the cutting head assembly be fastened to the shorter shaft for closer work or is the cutting head assembly permanently fixed to the extension shaft?
a: No you can't fasten it directly, the extension must be used.

Flash Hedge Trimmer Long Reach 52cc

As a commercial user I have the trimmer to be of excellent value. Though a little heavy it is easy to start and use. Powerful enough to trim most hedges. Great for those high hedge tops.

All I Needed

I got to try my new Hedge Trimmer last weekend and it started on the first attempt! The assembly was easy, all the tools were provided and the petrol/oil mixing bottle for the 2-stroke mix was very useful. Trimming the hedges was a breeze compared to the less-powerful battery-powered version I had for years.

Great hedge cutting tool

The hedge cutter was ready to use, great instructions. Easy to start and was running smoothly. I liked the Petrol mixing bottle that came with it. Overall a great product. The only thing it was a bit heavier than my old Pole hedge cutter.

This is a great product. Strong, powerfull and well made. It's only draw back is the weight so the user definitely needs a harness to support the unit during use.

I am a 60 something female and bought this to cut my Eugenia hedge, well over 100m of hedge, that is supposed to stand at 1.8m high. The machine is quite heavy for me and took a while to work out the best cut angle to do the top. The ratchet lock wheel for stabilising the hedge cutter blades is very flimsy and does not lock in well, I have to manually adjust the teeth into the lock hook. I do not think it is a safe system that seems to have so much sloppy movement. It does has its restrictions with cutting anything too thick, so I had to cut a lot of the tops with my hedge cutter, and that over my head is a task. Not sure about the recommendation.

Happy with my trimmer, BUT: Pro's: Starts easy. Cuts well. Con,s: Had to disassemble throttle control handle, and position the return spring, to get the safety switch to work. Throttle stop screw came adrift. (no internal nut installed during factory assembly) Lost heatshield between fuel tank and exhaust. Fuel flowed out of the filler cap. (easily sorted. Identified the seal was not flush inside the cap) Hindsight :( It pays to go through the machine and check all fasteners are tight.

Just the machine for cutting the top of the hedge, saving me from risking life and limb trying to balance on the top of trestles and a plank. Also a lot cheaper than the rest.
