Were do you guys get your hedge trimmers sharpen at ,Do you do it your self if so how do you do it?
Mine are sharpened at the local shop. I sharpen my mower blades but I let them do the hedge clippers.
We use a file to sharpen our hedge trimmer blades and if they get bad I might use our Dremel tool.
I have never in my life heard of sharpening hedge trimmers, I always thought this was something people talked about to waste my time, some kind of sick practical hahaha joke (like criss-cross aeration), those blades run against each other, they should self-sharpen for the most part like an electric razor. Yes, they need replacing after so many years, but that should be about it.
I have never sharpened my hedge trimmers, not in 3 years. They are still VERY sharp, dangerously so. And so long they cut, I ain't paying or doing squat.
Keep in mind I only use them about 1-2 dozen jobs/year or so, still, are you hedge trimming daily or what?
I use the dremel tool and it does agood job. Just follow the angle of the blade. I took it to a shop and this is what they used and he charged me 25.00 to do it. I had the dremel tool already, so I got the file size I needed and been doing it ever since.
We use a dremel tool or a file takes a while.
