Kawasaki KHSS750A Petrol Hedgetrimmer

  • Product Details

    The commonly held notion that ‘two heads are better than one’ really doesn’t stand up to much scrutiny. At best a second head is another mouth to feed and at worst, as attested by the slightly peculiar Richard E. Grant film How to Get Ahead in Advertising, a second head may even usurp the first and take over your life completely! Similarly, although a two-sided hedgetrimmer might seem the obvious choice (two cutting edges must be better than one, yes?) there are plenty of situations in which a single-sided blade is infinitely preferable.

    When trimming long, straight sections of hedge, for example, a single-sided hedgetrimmer like Kawasaki’s KHS S750A is almost certainly the most efficient choice available. This is because having just one cutting edge saves on weight, making it possible to fit the machine with a longer blade without it becoming unbalanced. The KHS S750A, for example, boasts an impressive 73.5cm single-sided reciprocating blade, precision engineered for a clean, tidy cut. The extra cutting length this provides makes it possible to trim the extensive hedgerows of large gardens, parks and country estates quickly, while also permitting a wide sweeping motion to make evening out the tops and sides of sculpted shrubs and bushes satisfyingly simple.

    An additional advantage of being lighter (weighing in at a trifling 5.5kg) is that the KHS S750A is also very easy to handle. Combined with the dual front and rear handle system, and the fact that with a single-sided blade it is easier to control where you are cutting, this means that the KHS S750A can be used to achieve an incredibly accurate cut. When tidying formal hedgerows, or even trimming topiaries, a single-sided hedgetrimmer is therefore capable of producing a significantly better finish than most double-sided machines.

    Powered by a compact and hardworking 22.5cc Kawasaki two-stroke petrol engine and built with a heavy duty gearbox for exceptional reliability, the KHS S750A is also ideally suited to the rigorous demands of commercial cutting work in both horticultural and agricultural settings. Moreover, to ensure that no time is lost when you start working this clever machine also features an auto-return choke and an easy to use recoil starter for trouble-free ignition every time, with Kawasaki’s KAR (Kawasaki Advanced Recoil) starting system reducing starter cord resistance for even greater convenience. The combined stop switch and throttle, moreover, improves safety by allowing you to quickly deactivate the cutting blade when required.

    All of these features combine to make Kawasaki’s KHS S750A a pleasingly simple way of maintaining a great finish on fast-growing hedgerows of all kinds, with the inclusion of either a three year professional warranty or a five year domestic warranty with every machine just the cherry on the proverbial cake. Why, therefore, should you use a double-sided hedgetrimmer when a single-sided machine can be this good?

    About Kawasaki
    Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd is truly a manufacturing Behemoth, a Leviathan of industry, a commercial Titan with which few can compare, a… well, you get the idea. They’re pretty big. In addition to high quality powered horticultural tools, Kawasaki’s product lines include the following (take a deep breath now); space systems, flight simulators, jet engines, missiles, rolling stock, oil tankers, submarines, wind turbines, nuclear power plant equipment, industrial plants, robots, water treatment systems, motorcycles, cars, construction machinery, steel bridges and jet skis.

    However, it is worth noting that few companies become a globe-straddling, Brobdingnagian enterprise of this kind without sharing Kawasaki’s dedication to innovation, customer service and brilliant engineering. It is this longstanding tradition of producing clever, effective and efficient machinery which has led professional gardeners and landscapers across the world to select Kawasaki machines as their tools of choice when faced with heavy duty horticultural work.

    Kawasaki’s current manufacturing empire has relatively humble roots in the form of a man named Shz Kawasaki. The son of a kimono merchant, Shz Kawasaki was born in 1837 and became a tradesman at the age of 17 in Nagasaki. He later started a shipping business in Osaka at 27, but it failed when his cargo ship sank during a storm. Despite this seeming setback, it was in fact Shz Kawasaki’s unfortunate familiarity with sea accidents (of which he experienced many during his life) that lay down the foundations for the Kawasaki company’s later success. This is because Kawasaki came to admire Western ships during his life at sea, which were typically more spacious, stable and faster than Japanese ships, and when Kawasaki established the Kawasaki Tsukiji Shipyard in Tokyo in 1878 he pioneered in the introduction of modern shipbuilding techniques in Japan.

    Eighteen years later, in 1896, the Kawasaki Tsukiji Shipyard was incorporated as Kawasaki Dockyard Co., Ltd and the company has been growing and blazing all kinds of trails ever since. Given Kawasaki’s expertise in creating powerful, environmentally friendly and efficient engines it made perfect sense for the company to introduce its own range of power tools, including a variety of commercial grade blowers, brushcutters and hedgetrimmers. These tools all benefit from Kawasaki’s characteristic commitment to quality, durability and long-lasting performance, making them perfect for busy professionals who need machines capable of tackling heavy workloads while producing superior results.
