An electric hedge trimmer can be expensive but the cost is balanced by the job it handles. You do not have to do as much work with your arms as a manual trimmer. Like a manual trimmer, the blades do dull after awhile. Before you sharpen the blades, make sure the trimmer is turned off and unplugged. In order to ensure the sharpening is successful, you need to remove the blades and place them on a flat top, preferably a table. Using a vice grip, clamp the blade down on the table. Using a file, begin in short bursts with sharpening. Make sure you are wearing eye protection and gloves so you do not get hurt.
