question on electric hedge trimmer
The front of my property has a 5 strand barb wire fence (left over from when this was a pasture/hayfield when I was a kid) and is about a quarter mile long, at least where the yard is. The other side of the fence is the side of a county road and is brush, etc and the honeysuckle, blackberry, locust etc. keep growing through. I've chopped, etc. it down a couple of times since building the house here 10 years ago. Time to do it again or I'll be mowing the grass 4-6 feet away from the fence.
I have never used and know nothing about hedge trimmers. Was wondering if an electric unit could be used to cut back this invasion? I have large lopping shears, axes, chain saws, etc. for the large stuff (which there shouldn't be too much of). Power would be provided by a 3250W generator in a trailer behind one of the tractors.
I'm thinking of electric due to cost over the gas units. Also don't want another 2 cycle engine which only gets run every 3-4 years. Some of the "best picks" out there seem to be in the $60-70 price range with 2 year warranties. This is very enticing when compared to doing it by hand.
Again, know nothing about these units, how large a branch will they cut? Would tackling something this large even doing only the small stuff kill the machine?
Thanks for your time,
