Little Wonder 2124-00-04

It's a great name and it's a great trimmer. Some of our testers already know the Little Wonder family for the professional electric models. The petrol range offered by the company is ideal for those working without a source of power.

There is a choice of single- or double-sided, double-reciprocating machines. All have 21.2cc commercial-grade engines with electronic ignition and purge pump carburettor for easier starting.
Our tester quickly masters the controls. There is a finger throttle and a lock out lever so the blades cannot be inadvertently engaged. The centrifugal clutch only engages the blades when the engine goes above idle. Our testers also like the hand-straightened, hardened-steel blades — they can cut material up to 2.5cm in diameter and can be re-sharpened.
“It’s a very nice machine to use, well balanced, has a reasonably quiet engine and the AV-mounts are good so there is hardly any vibration,” says the tester. “The handles are comfortable but what I particularly like is the cutting action. It has coped with this mixed hedge very well. It has even seen off the tough bits of elder and shrubs.”
