With the ECOSPEED function, you can use your long reach hedge trimmer in a more economical operating mode. Simply turn the wheel to the minus direction, reducing maximum engine speed.

A Centrifugal Clutch

A great feature of the Honda HHH 25S 75E 28″ is that they protect and insulate the user from any harmful vibrations.  The unique anti-vibration clutch uses a system that dampens vibrations to eliminate any worry for developing Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome – a debilitating condition that can develop from using high vibration hand tools.

When the rpm of the trimmer reaches a certain level, the outward centrifugal force from the engine’s drive shaft will engage with the outer output shaft, delivering a smooth transition of power to the cutting blades.

When the revs decrease, the springs will smoothly retract and disengage. The engine also produces very low noise levels, eliminating the need to worry about damaging your hearing when using this expert trimmer. 

Easy Starting and Handling

The Honda engine features a mechanical decompression system, making the initial starting pull much less of an effort. This model also features an extremely light flywheel, enabling the starter rope pull weight to be just 7.2kg.
To provide maximum comfort during use, the handles and controls are perfectly positioned in order to provide smoother use when using the trimmer for longer periods of time. 

Auto-sharpening Blades

Not only does this trimmer keep your hedges and foliage looking great, it also keeps its own teeth looking great too. With an anti-snapping blade protector coming as standard, your blades are guaranteed to last longer than most commercial trimmers on the market. 

We also offer a great warranty with this model, maintaining the same value throughout the warranty period – meaning the last day of cover is exactly the same as the first. This makes this model one of the best commercial petrol hedge trimmers on the market.
