need a very very very long hedge trimmer

Have some black berries on a bank and wish to hedge off the tops, out a long long way.

What is the longest hedge trimmer available?

Thank you

Trimmer

I Googled "pole hedge trimmer" and got several hits. There are both corded and cordless models available. Good luck with your project.

What do you consider a long way?
I have an attachment I can put on my line trimmer and reach about 5' and I also can put it on my pole saw and go out 15'.

If those blackberries are a seasonal crop, then the old stalks will usually die off every few years. That can give you the opportunity to cut some paths down through the maze to allow you to pick without a full armored suit. Just ran into a few on my side lot. I found a detour very quickly.

Keep in mind that you will need arm muscles like a boxer to trim more than a few minutes with a long extension. It will really give you a workout. It's one thing to go vertically 10 feet; quite another to go horizontally.
