This report shows you five established, reliable hedge trimmers, performing as owners expect. Our unbiased recommendations are based on combined owner rating scores, which we also share with you.

This ratings-driven view of the market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if the owner ratings reveal poor performance.

The Best Hedge Trimmers 2019

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of hedge trimmers with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos and John Lewis. This jumps straight to the established products, and the rating scores reveal how they've actually performed, according to numerous owners.

We then remove the hedge trimmers with less than 4 stars. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion.

We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars. After sorting the list by ratings, we compile this Top 5.
