Were would you bring you hedge trimmer blades to have them shapened if you can even sharpen them ?
any place that would sharpen mower blades.....or you could use a dremmel if you have one.
dremmel is the best answer. i have used a file and it takes way too long. i can even use a hand grinder but dont recommend it due to the ease of damage to the teeth
Just bought a 45.00 drimmel at home depot and it works great for sharpening the blades.two sharpenings and it pays for itself.
Dremmel - great idea guys didn't think about that.
i got a dremmel. its pretty expensive to have them sharpened at the dealers
and how long does it take YOU to sharpen a hedge trimmer blade? 5 minutes?
the right way, not half assed
i find it best to take the blades off the machine, put them in a vise, and then go about sharpening. with that in mind, about 30 min or so
It took me about 15 minutes with someone else holding the trimmer for me.
I think it will be best to remove the blades next time.
