Hedge & Tree Cutting Equipment

Date posted: 12 November 2011

Hiring hedge and tree cutting tools is an affordable way to save yourself money by doing trimming, pruning, bucking or small felling work yourself without having to spend out on garden contractors to do the job for you. 

When you want to remove branches, trim hedges or prune trees, then these types of forestry and hedge cutting tools are readily available from us to assist you with your garden maintenance needs.

Telescopic Chainsaw / Petrol Pole Saw

Ideal for trimming tall bushes and trees these versatile telescopic tree cutters can reach distances up to 3 meters away without the need of using a ladder or skylift. 

This allows for a much safer experience when cutting tall trees and bushes and it suitable for both domestic and commercial applications.

Telescopic Chainsaw branch cutting tips

  • Large branches should be cut into small sections so you have more control over where they will fall
  • Avoid cutting through the root of the branch at the swelling as this will increase the likelihood of fungal attack and increase the time needed for the tree to heal.
  • Make an initial cut on the underside of the branch you are cutting up to a maximum 1/3 of its thickness otherwise you risk jamming the pole saw. This initial cut will also help to prevent tearing of the bark which may damage the tree. 
  • As you withdraw the telescopic pole saw, always keep the chain running to help prevent jamming and it getting stuck.
  • Always work at full throttle and let the engine cut back to idle speeds between cuts. Do not rush the work and make sure all branches are cut back cleanly.

Petrol Hedge Trimmers & Long Reach Hedge Trimmers

When doing precision hedge trimming work that requires professional gardening equipment, our heavy duty Husaqvana Petrol hedge trimmers for hire are perfect for trimming large dense hedges and bushes when looking to achieve a neat, crisp finish. They are suitable for both domestic and commercial applications, and we also stock long reach petrol hedge trimmers with an extra long pole when needing to trim tall hedges without having to use a ladder or cherry picker.

Petrol ChainSaws

Our Husqvarna ChainSaws can be used for a variety of tree cutting tasks and can deal with work of varying thicknesses. 

They are used predominately for felling trees, bucking, pruning, cutting firewood, and can be used either by tree surgeons of DIY enthusiasts who are maintaining their gardens.

However,  there are a few behaviour characteristics you need to made aware of when you rent a chainsaw.

Chainsaw Kickback:

  • Chainsaw Kickback is a common thing that can cause a lot of accidents if you are not prepared for it. It happens when a chainsaw tooth catches a piece of wood without cutting through it, and this causes the chainsaw to throw itself back towards to operator suddenly. While most chainsaw kickbacks are easily controlled, you need still need to be very careful due to the nature of dangerous machinery you are using.
  • Depending If you are cutting with the chainsaw using the bottoms of the bar or the top of the bar, will cause the chain to behave differently. If you are cutting with the bottom of the bar then the chainsaw will pull you towards the wood otherwise if you are using the top of the bar, then it can push you away. You grip, and body stance is paramount depending on how you are using the chainsaw.

Chain Saw Tips

  • Always wear protective clothing when you rent a chainsaw such as steel toe cap boots, chainsaw trousers, safety helmet, eye and ear protectors. We carry stock of chainsaw safety kit items should you need.
  • Always size up the job before starting to use the chainsaw and identify areas which may be challenging. Always be aware of what's around you and implementation that may happen e.g. if cutting down a tree, is there any other trees it may fall on or power cables etc.
  • Work out any safety cuts to do first to help ensure you are working with a minimum of risk.
  • Never use the chainsaw if you are tired or if you have been drinking alcohol.
  • Always cut on full power and never let the chainsaw go above your chest.
  • Always keep the chainsaw close to your body and your elbow locked.
  • Always hold the chainsaw with both of your hands.
