Get your garden in shape this spring!A lightweight, high performance one-hand hedge trimmer: The PowerTrimmer Li by Metabo.
Powerful and compact: The "PowerTrimmer Li" / one-hand hedge trimmer can cut through thicker branches easily / Reach branches easily with this 1.2 kg device / High-performance 7.2 V lithium-ion battery convinces customers with its durability / Only 30 minutes required for charging
Nürtingen, March 2010. Whether freshly trimmed in spring or pruned in late summer; a neat hedge has never been achieved without hard work. Using Metabo's long pedigree of experience in making hedge trimmers, the PowerTrimmer was born to help make such tasks a little less tasking! With the 'wand' in your hand the PowerTrimmer's lightweight design will allow you to cut cord free with ease, helping to avoid the onslaught of common wrist and back pain.
The PowerTrimmer is one of the first one-hand operated hedge trimmers on the market. With its grade 'A' lithium-ion battery pack, it can cope with branches of up to 8 mm in diameter thanks to its double-sided laser-cut, diamond-ground steel blades.
Power is one thing, but ease of use is also important. What makes this machine a real joy to use is the fact that it only weighs 1.2 kg. Its solid, compact design allows it to get into tight spaces as well as being comfortable for overhead use.
The generous 230 mm long blade will help you cover wider areas at a time in contrast to shorter blade designs.
The 7.2 V 1.1 Ah lithium-ion battery pack can be charged in 30 minutes. It is removable, too, so once it has exhausted its life cycle you can replace it. There's no need to buy a completely new machine!
Not only are lithium-ion cells light, but they only self discharge by very small amounts so you can use your PowerTrimmer straight away even after periods of non-use. Unlike NiCd, lithium does not suffer from memory effect so your batteries will last longer too.
Metabo use the LC60 charger which uses individual cell monitoring and a smooth charging procedure to guarantee long service life.
The 7.2 V 1.1 Ah lithium-ion battery pack can be charged in 30 minutes. It is removable too so once it has exhausted its life cycle you can replace it, no need to buy a completely new machine! In comparison some other models on the market have fixed battery packs and can take up to 3 hours to charge.
The Metabo 7.2 V battery platform fits the following Metabo machines:
Metabo PowerCutter Shrub Cutter
Metabo PowerMaxx Drill/Driver
New Style PowerGrip Screwdriver
and course the Metabo PowerTrimmer Hedge Cutter
There are no risks involved when working with the one-hand hedge trimmer. Cut and impact protection, the upper safety blade and the transparent hand guard allow for a clear view of your working area.
The storage slipcase included with each PowerTrimmer Li looks after the device while it is stored in your cellar or shed - hanging on the wall, for example, to save space. Oil or spray as a care agent, full vision protective goggles and additional batteries with 1.1. or 2.2 Ah are available from the comprehensive range of Metabo accessories to round off the offer.
