How To Maintain Your Hedge Trimmer

Maintaining and caring for your hedge trimmer is important for a number of reasons. Not only will correct maintenance ensure the product lasts for years to come, but it will also ensure that any projects are completed to the highest possible standard. To find out how to care for your hedge trimmer, keep reading.

Wipe & Sharpen The Blades

One of the best ways to maintain your hedge trimmer is to take good care of the blades. Cleaning is as simple as wiping them down with a soft cloth and warm soapy water. Ideally, you should do this after each use to ensure dirt and debris is removed from the blades. Sharpening your blades is also good practice as the sharp edges will ensure your hedge is trimmed smoothly and efficiently.

Use A Hedge Trimmer Scabbard

Another way to protect your hedge trimmer’s blades is by covering them with an appropriate sheath. This means that dust particles and dirt will not settle on your blades whilst the trimmer is unused or in storage. Having a blade scabbard will also help to prevent damage caused by rust and moisture.

Clean The Filter

If your hedge trimmer’s filter is clogged, it will not perform properly since it requires a continuous flow of air to operate. Debris can easily get stuck in the filter, so you should always make sure to clean it after each use. To find out how to open your machine’s filter, read the product’s information guide. Once you have successfully removed it, cleaning is easy. All you need to do is tap the filter on a hard surface and replace.

Tighten Loose Screws

As a hedge trimmer can vibrate quite violently with use, it is easy for fittings to become loose. Without proper care, this can cause damage over time, and result in lost parts or even accidents. Therefore, making sure screws and other fittings are tightly fitted is an important part of maintaining your trimmer.
