What is the Husqvarna 122HD60 hedge trimmer?

A petrol mower with a 22cc engine and 59cm long blades.

What is the Husqvarna 122HD60 hedge trimmer like to use?

This compact trimmer is easy to start and feels light for its power and weight. It gives a fast, efficient cut and its anti-vibration system means it’s comfortable in the hand and can be used for longer without getting tired. The handle rotates to multiple angles so it’s easier to cut higher growth above head height and shape at otherwise awkward angles. It has a blade guard which is strong, rigid plastic and has a handy hole for hanging the trimmer up when it’s not in use.

Who is the Husqvarna 122HD60 hedge trimmer most useful for?

This is great for use on large and high hedging and shrubs, so would be ideal in bigger gardens with more mature hedges. It’s quiet too, so is useful for using in busy urban areas and not disturbing the neighbours.

Is the Husqvarna 122HD60 hedge trimmer good value for money?

This is a well-designed hedge trimmer that’s powerful and light. It comes with a two-year warranty but is the highest priced petrol model that we tested so we think its reasonable value for money.
