How to Sharpen Hedge Trimmer

Hedge trimmers need to be sharpened regularly to keep them working properly. There are a few different ways to sharpen hedge trimmers, but the most common is with a round file. First, remove the blade from the hedge trimmer.

Then, use a round file to file down the edges of the blade. Be sure to only file in one direction and not back and forth. After a few strokes with the file, test the blade on some paper to see if it is sharp enough.

If not, continue filing until it is sharp enough.

  • Unplug the hedge trimmer and remove any debris from the blade
  • Place the blade on a sharpening stone at a 20-degree angle
  • Use a back and forth motion to sharpen the blade
  • Wipe the blade clean and apply oil to protect it from rusting
  • Reattach the blade to the hedge trimmer and plug it in to test it out

How to Sharpen Hedge Trimmers With a File

If your hedge trimmers are starting to feel dull, it’s time to sharpen them up! With just a few simple steps, you can get your trimmers back in top shape. Here’s what you’ll need:

-A file (a round one will work best) -A sharpening stone (optional) -Protective gloves

-Safety glasses First, take a look at your trimmer blades. If they’re very dull, you may want to start with a sharpening stone to get them back in shape.

If they’re not too bad, though, a file should do the trick. Start by putting on your safety gear. Then, take the file and hold it at about a 45 degree angle to the blade.

Run the file along the blade, moving from the base of the blade towards the tip. Be sure to keep an even pressure as you go – too much pressure and you could damage the blades. Do this until both sides of each blade are nice and sharp.

If you’re using a sharpening stone, be sure to use light strokes and move from side to side across the blade rather than going in one direction only. And that’s it! Just a few minutes of work and your hedge trimmers will be good as new again.
