I think this will be my next whipper:-

 

 

 

I've got the multi tool whipper and it's great but I don't like loop handles - so I've gone back to using the Honda mostly - if this thing has the grunt the reviews say then my UMK425 and 435 whippers will be heading to Gumtree leaving me fully battery equipped except for the mower.

I ended up buying the 61cm hedger kit. The brushless model would have been nice but it's for private use and the buying the cheaper hedger kit means I now have a second 2.5Ah battery for the multi tool. I'll see how the 61cm hedger goes on some Golden Diosma and Wonga vine- I've found they're both a good test for hedgers. Hopefully it's similar in performance to the multi tool hedger.

 

 

As expected there is a somewhat notice difference in power between the multi tool hedger and 61cm hedge trimmer (HT2400E).

 

It's still got more than enough power for home use, just not as much as the multi tool (compared to the multi tool on it's lowest speed.) There's a massive delay between pulling the safety and trigger before the HT4200E turns on- I actually thought it was dead out of the box! Unlike the multi tool's variable speed trigger, the HT4200E has a simple fixed speed on/off trigger. It seems to run a little bit slower than the multi tool's lowest speed (ie. with the multi tool set on speed 1 and the trigger fully depressed.)

 

I did find the guard at the tip of the HT2400E trimmer blades excellent. The multi tool doesn't have a guard so you need to be careful not to go too close to solid objects.

Sorry Jal, I only have the push mower so can't really help.
Just wondering what happened, hows the warranty claim going & have you been happy with it up until now ?
Being very light & working in a flat area, would it be feasible to push it ?
I know thats not really the point though.

I was & still am considering the steel deck sp so am keen to know the outcome.
Please keep us informed, thanx.

Cheers Fred.

Hi Fred,

 

I'm happy with the mower.

I have received the warranty claim in 1 working day but haven't dropped the mower to their Authorised agent in Bentleigh East yet.

 

Will let you know the outcome.

You will drop the mower in at Mackie rd shops.
You will drop it in at Jav electronics or if he's out, his wife's hair dressing business up the road.
How pro is that ..... lol.

The process has been a slow one for us but, successful a few times so far.
Good luck.

Cheers Fred.

Correct Fred.

I did go there today and been waiting for 1.5 hours since no one at the shop.

SO i left and called them. Arrange with her for tomorrow around 1 pm.

There is another one in Cranbourne West. I might try it next time.

 

Thats why I still keep my Honda HRX for backup
