The Mountfield MH48Li is the most viewed. It’s a cordless hedge trimmer that costs a pricey £277. The 48V battery can be used across Mountfield’s cordless range, which is useful if you have more of their tools.
At around half the weight of a petrol hedge trimmer would it make a good alternative to one?

The Outback Jupiter 4 Burner is the most-viewed barbecue. At £450, it’s cheaper than most of its competitors and has lots of useful features and impressive-sounding specifications. With four burners, it’s big enough to cook for five to seven people.
