One prominent challenge in the development of a top quality hedgetrimmer is delivering power enough to tackle tough hedgerows, bushes and shrubs while also making the machine simple, practical and convenient for the user. Shindaiwa’s DH 2200 ST represents a new high in hedgetrimmer design in this respect, combining an incredibly lightweight and user-friendly build with superb performance. This makes it ideal for even the most dedicated home gardener and easily capable of handling the demands of most commercial applications, while always remaining straightforward and comfortable to use.

Powered by a hardworking 21.1cc two-stroke petrol engine, the DH 2200 ST is capable of producing superb results when faced with all but the very thickest vegetation. For added durability this engine is built with a chrome-plated cylinder and a two-ring piston, thus ensuring a long and reliable service life. The DH 2200 ST’s 0.4 litre fuel tank, moreover, features an extra wide opening to prevent spillages during refuelling, while the inclusion of a handy Soft Start system means that it should never require more than one or two pulls of the recoil starter to get things going, saving valuable time and effort from the moment that you begin working.

More impressive still, however, is the DH 2200 ST’s reciprocating double-sided blade, which provides an effective cutting length of 48cm. For added protection against corrosion, rust and general wear these blades are nickel-plated and fitted with a tip guard to help maintain sharpness over time, while a triangular anti-jammer ensures smooth and stress-free trimming. These features combine to make the DH 2200 ST equally capable of precision trimming, accurate shaping and heavier cutting work, enabling effective cutting in every part of the garden.

Incredibly lightweight at only 4.6kg, the DH 2200 ST is also easy to handle. This inherent manoeuvrability is further enhanced by the inclusion of a rotating rear handle, which can be quickly and easily adapted for an optimal working angle when cutting hard to reach parts of shrubs, hedges and bushes. Moreover, with a built-in anti-vibration system also included to prevent engine vibration from being transmitted to the operator’s hands and arms, you can rest assured of working in complete safety and comfort.

What’s more, not content with this impressive combination of performance and ergonomics, Shindaiwa also offers a five year domestic or two year professional warranty as standard. With the DH 2200 ST you are thus ensured complete satisfaction, regardless of whether you are a busy professional contractor or simply an enthusiastic amateur gardener seeking an effective tool for routine hedgerow maintenance at home.

About Shindaiwa
In 1955 the ‘Shindaiwa Hurricane' hit the marketplace, an electric chainsaw that proved to be an instant success with the construction industry. Since this time numerous design awards have been bestowed upon the legendary Japanese manufacturer, including the ‘Good Design Award' in 1985. In fact, Shindaiwa claim to have invented the hand-held leaf blower market in that same year and have continued to produce some of the most respected professional outdoor power equipment in the world. Painstaking research is at the centre of all Shindaiwa products that are developed and tested by skilled engineers before being manufactured using the highest quality components available.

It is this attention to detail that gives the company the confidence to offer a 2-year commercial use guarantee on all of its products, happy in the knowledge that it will be a rare occasion when a Shindaiwa tool lets you down. In 2002 their first 4-cycle product, the T2500 petrol brush cutter, was developed and paved the way for the cleaner running and more environmentally friendly range of power tools of the future. There is no doubting that as customers' needs have changed, the Shindaiwa product line has moved with them.
