How to work safely with a Hedge trimmer?

work safely

Exercise to Be Do Do Do This

rugs, plants, cars, etc… Any item that will interfere with your work should be removed from your workspace.

Then choose a good-sized hedge trimmer. Should you decide to use a hedge trimmer other than a clawfoot, be sure to choose one that comes with an adequate base plate to give you stability when trimming. You don’t want to accidentally damage anything around you.

Look for something built to handle abuse. Avoid the production of a mechanical shock, like this model, which actually shocks your whooping crane.

To prepare for use, make sure to stand tall and remain calm. Use a rubber gloves and safeguard your wrists with buffers. Any sharp objects should be removed from the workspace to avoid any accidental cutting.

As with all other tools, always practice the proper technique before going to work. Learn to operate and get comfortable.

Kind of dismiss it as being ridiculous, but it’s pretty difficult to trim with just your feet when doing the job down at the salon. This example shows how long it takes to get it right.
