Oregon recently announced the launch of the HT250 Hedge Trimmer as part of the expansion of its Oregon 40V MAX Cordless Tool System.

The Oregon HT250 Hedge Trimmer is powered by the Oregon PowerNow battery platform, a system of premium Lithium Ion batteries that are compatible across all Oregon Cordless Tools, including the CS250 Chain Saw and the ST250 Trimmer/Edger.

The HT250 Hedge Trimmer features a 24-inch blade with laser-cut precision blades for long reach and cleaner cutting, resulting in healthier plants. The trimmer’s dual-action blades provide smooth cutting action while reducing vibration and noise. The light-weight, ergonomic design features balanced handle placement for comfortable operation and handling. The hedge trimmer features a variable-speed trigger, increasing control and run time.

Capable of cutting branches up to 3/4-inch in diameter, the HT250 delivers up to 60 minutes of trigger time on a single charge with the B400E 2.4 Ah Battery Pack and 30 minutes with the B500S 1.25 Ah Battery Pack. When accounting for other aspects of the job, this trigger time can equate to total project times of 1-3 hours.

Available in spring 2013, the Oregon HT250 Hedge Trimmer can be purchased in 2 convenient kits that include a battery pack and charger. For an existing Oregon cordless user, the unit can also be purchased without a battery or charger. Additional batteries and chargers can be purchased separately.
