I have a Honda HHH25D hedge trimmer and I am very pleased with it, despite it being a heavy beast its quieter than a 2 stroke, starts wel, has a long reach and doesnt use much petrol. In fact, when mine got nicked by some low life scum last year, I replaced like with like.
This year I have noticed that hedges I trimmed are showing scorch marks from the exhaust. Clearly where I am just cutting the face quickly its not an issue but anywhere I have had to move slowly to get detail right it has damaged the foliage.
I have contacted Honda and they have said go to the local technician but thats not very convenient as I would have to take tie off the job.
I can find no description of any sort of deflector and went to a showroom yesterday to compare mine with theirs and they are the same (before anyone points out that i shoudl have spoken to a tchnician there were none in the workshop yesterday).
Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you sort it out?
