The AL-KO Hedge Trimmer HT 550 Safety Cut also features a more powerful motor compared to the HT 440 Basic Cut as well as having an additional feature of a safety cable — to name a few!

Further Features include:

  • Trimming Hedges In The Right Way - Hedges should be trimmed to achieve a trapezoidal shape, which means wider at the bottom than the top, in order for them to remain dense and bushy. This makes it possible to prevent the lower branches from dying off due to lack of light.
  • Perfect Care - AL-KO recommend caring for your hedge trimmer with a spray oil with lubricating properties – it also frees up seized parts, removes rust and cleans.
  • Powerful In Use - Perfectly trimmed hedges, whether small or large, are no problem thanks to the powerful, reliable and comfortable hedge trimmers from AL-KO.
