The forthcoming G-Tech multi tool package has been a favourite on gardening shows for a good long while now and when I heard that there was a TSV planned I ‘volunteered’ myself for one of the test samples.
I have always admired the versatility of the machine with its multiple heads, and have already exported one to my in-laws in Norway.
I wondered if it would have enough grunt for the whole garden and be powerful enough to do the jobs I had in store.
It certainly makes short work of neatening up the edges of my lawn and round the border, and whilst it is not as quick as my petrol machine, it’s a lot quieter, more controllable and lighter!
On to the hedge, and as you can see its something that needs done regularly otherwise the privet on one side meetswith the Hornbeam on the other! The hedges are pretty huge and if I took my time I could easily do the whole thing and unlike when I use the petrol hedge trimmer, my shoulders and arms didn’t hurt the next day.
I used the other attachments, which all clip on to the base with the greatest of ease and they are very efficient and effective. With two batteries you will never run out of power. I like the ease of use (no petrol two-stroke mixes and spark plugs to worry about), I like the controllability (with the adjustable handle height and lightweight design) and I like the fact its easy to just get out there and get going.
I also like the special price we have, for one day, so join Justine Balmer, Richard, me and the rest of the gang on Saturday 20th June for a great Summer Together event.
