Power and autonomy are the biggest advantages of petrol-engined or battery powered hedge trimmers. But with such a heavy hedge trimmer your muscles and joints are feeling the strain really soon. The Elephants Trunk (ET) changed all that.
The comfortable harness with adjustable shoulder straps is worn like a backpack. You connect your hedge trimmer (or any other handheld garden machine between 4.5 and 8 kg) onto the steel cable of the balancer, that transfers the weight of the machine to the harness. The cable moves smoothly along the ball bearings in the adjustable tube. With the ET you will be able to trim hedges all day long. Furthermore, because you can work with less effort you will work faster, more accurate and in greater safety.
The high quality balancer, mounted at the lower back, ensures long lasting of the steel cable and spring. The spring tension of the balancer is preset to 30N. The nylon ball bearings ensure optimal guidance of the steel cable in any direction, even when trimming tall hedges. The anodized aluminum tube can be swiveled 360°, so while bending forward during trimming the tube does not get caught in the hedge.
