What is the Webb HC600 hedge trimmer?

This is a petrol hedge trimmer with a double-sided 56cm blade and a wide 35mm tooth spacing.

What is the Webb HC600 hedge trimmer like to use?

This is easy to start and great to use thanks to its rotating handle, which moves through five different positions both left and right. It makes it easy to find a comfortable working position when cutting and shaping the tops and sides of hedges, and this is a versatile hedge trimmer suitable for most hedges whatever their height. It’s also powerful, with one of the widest tooth spacings of the hedge trimmers we tested so it’s great for wider, more mature stems and growth. It cut all the hedges we tried it on well. Despite being the heaviest hedge trimmer we tested, the weight is evenly distributed and it feels well balanced to hold. A tip guard protects the blade from damage and also prevents it damaging any fences or walls that it might come in contact with near the hedge.

Who is the Webb HC600 hedge trimmer most useful for?

Best for those with big gardens and long tall hedges and for stronger and more able gardeners.

Is the Webb HC600 hedge trimmer good value for money?

This is a lightweight, powerful machine and at £169.99 and with a two-year warranty, we think this is great value for money.
