What is the Einhell GE-CH-1846Li hedge trimmer?
Part of the Einhell Power X-Change system, this cordless hedge trimmer is powered by a lithium-ion battery and is available as a set that includes an 18V 2.0Ah battery pack and a high-speed charger. The battery takes 40 minutes to charge and has a charge level indicator with three LEDs so you can check the level as you work, although we found this was hard to see. It has a double-sided, 52cm blade.
What is the Einhell GE-CH-1846Li hedge trimmer like to use?
This is a relatively small and lightweight hedge trimmer which is quiet and easy to handle and has a long blade given its size and weight, helping it to make quick work of whatever it cuts. It lacks the rotating head that other hedge trimmers have, but the blade has a tip guard on the end to protect the blade as well as prevent it damaging any fences or walls that it might come in contact with near the hedge. This also has a handy hole so you can hang it up when it’s not in use.
The hand guard is sturdy and it has a stout, sleeve-type blade guard. The tooth spacing on the bade is 15mm and it cut well on thinner growth but the blades gave a poorer, ragged cut on woodier stems.
Who is the Einhell GE-CH-1846Li hedge trimmer most useful for?
This an easy-to-use, comfortable hedge trimmer, great for occasional, weekend use on smaller, less mature hedges and for less able gardeners.
Is the Einhell GE-CH-1846Li hedge trimmer good value for money?
For the kit – hedge trimmer, battery and charger – this costs £89.99, plus, the battery and charger can be used with all the other tools in the Einhell Power X-Change range, saving you money in the future if you expand your tool kit. It comes with a two-year warranty and we think this is excellent value for money.
