Is is possible to compare electric to petrol hedge trimmers? The two below cost roughly the same. OK the petrol can cut a maximum 28mm whilst the electric is 21mm, but I'm just after domestic use, so I assume 21mm is sufficient. Electric Makita: Makita UH6570/2 65cm 550W Electric Hedge Trimmer | Screwfix.com Petrol Ryobi: Ryobi RHT2660DA 60cm 26cc Petrol Hedge Trimmer | Screwfix.com I can reach my hedges with an extension cord, so I don't need the range flexibility of a petrol powered one. So I'm inclined to buy the electric as it's lighter, quieter and less maintenance (?) Have I missed anything that makes the petrol more advantageous? Thanks.
