Do electric hedge trimmers need oil?

You can use 3 in 1 oil or SAE20 engine oil to lubricate the blades, or any engine oil will do the job just fine. Give them an oiling every 30 minutes of use, before, and after use.

Furthermore, why is my electric hedge trimmer not working? One of the most common reasons why a hedge trimmer won't start on is because there is a problem with the spark plug. If the electrode is damaged or burned away, there is a lot of carbon buildup, or the insulator is cracked, then the spark plug needs to be discarded and replaced right away to see if that is the problem.

Hereof, do electric hedge trimmers need sharpening?

Electric hedge trimmers save you time and are easier on your arms than manual trimmers. When those blades become dull, the job takes longer to accomplish. Instead of buying a new electric hedge trimmer or having the blades professionally sharpened, you can sharpen them yourself in a short amount of time.

How do I disinfect my hedge trimmer blades?

Dry the blades with a soft cloth. Sterilize them with either rubbing alcohol or a mixture containing 1 part household bleach and 9 parts water. Leave either disinfectant on the blades for at least 30 seconds. Wipe them dry.
