The HE815 has loads of technology wrapped up in its 21st-century design. The two-step reduction gear reduces the cutter’s stroke rate and channels extra power to the blades for slicing through thick material. At the business end, the blades are laser cut and have teeth that are sharpened on both sides.
The elongated handle looks odd but provides an effective arm-rest for effortless control of the machine. And the handle rotates through five working positions, so there is no excuse for being uncomfortable. A switch at the end of the handle extends the trimmer’s reach by up to 45 per cent.
This machine is a delight to use and it feels safe. Its electronic quick blade stop halts the blades in 0.02 seconds when the operating switch is released.
Yes, it’s an electric trimmer. But this is a tough machine. The construction is sound and under the casing we find the gear wheels are solid steel and the connection rods incorporate a grease reservoir for improved lubrication.
