One of the standout features of the Remington RM5124TH hedge trimmer is its titanium blades. While the competition boasts double-edged and long blades, Remington is giving them a run for their money with the RM5124TH’s 24-width titanium-coated dual action blades.
Other features of this electric hedge trimmer include:
– 5 amp electric motor
– 180-degree rotating handle
– cushioned grip
– cord lock
– storage scabbard
– 3/4″ cutting capacity
What benefits should you expect given these features?
– Increased versatility. The rotating handle allows you to easily trim through branches without switching from one hand or position to another.
– Comfort. The handle is ergonomically designed. Plus, the grip is cushioned, thereby providing you a comfortable operation.
– Smooth operation. One of the disadvantages of electric hedge trimmers is that the cord can disconnect during trimming. With the Remington RM5124TH‘s cord lock feature, this won’t happen.
– Longer-lasting blades. Eventually, stainless steel blades wear out or lose their sharpness. This trimmer’s titanium-coated blades, however, stay sharper longer.
