Impressive machine, but can it set for “just a trim and neaten up the back of my neck”?

i’d like to offer a different backing track (starting at the 2:20 mark)

Watching this, I feel like a triangular hedge that’s been put in the wrong field.

I love the sound of trimming in the morning. Smells like…topiary.

Whoever made this video needs to trim it by 2/3. Over a min of calibration followed by 2 of measurements and starting the machine. Skip to 3:00 to actually see the damn thing go.

I guess they are just normal box hedges that after you buy them you have to shape them into spheres yourself with out the cool machine.

This is from some strange world where the Matrix meets Edward Scissorhands.

I wanted to post “INTENSE! FINE ADJUSTMENT! ACTION!” but apparently you can’t post incomplete sentences now?

Skip to about 3 and a half minutes for the actual action and not all this adjusting nonsense.

I came here looking for the version that handles hedges in the 150 to 200 cm range. Will check this out with fingers crossed…

Great! Now I’m overcome with desire for a quincunx of perfectly spherical buxus.
