Einhell GE-PH 2555A Review 2-Stroke 25 cc Petrol Hedge Trimmer
Einhell is one of the favourite economy brands in the tool sector. Their products are of a fair price, and they last a long time. And whatever it is they do to their blades, they seem to stay sharper for longer than most other brands.
This Einhell GE-PH 2555A Petrol Hedge Trimmer has a good-sized engine, good blade length, and plenty of power to get through thick branches. It has the same features as many other petrol hedge trimmers, including a rotatable handle and an anti-vibrational engine mounting.
- 2-Stroke, 25cc, 1900 rpm
- Double Reciprocating, 61cm (24in)
- Rotatable Handle, Fixed U-Shaped Front Rail

A 1.15 horsepower engine is impressive in trimmer of this size, 24.5cc. And they have done this while keeping it in a medium-low price range. It has affected the weight, though the Einhell GE-PH 2555A Petrol Hedge Trimmer is lighter than many petrol hedge trimmers of similar engine size.
The fuel tank on this Einhell GE-PH 2555A Petrol Hedge Trimmer is set under the engine, which has a large petrol filler opening leading into it from the right of the engine. There is also a primer pump to get the engine ready for a quick start after a period of inactivity.
Einhell prides themselves on making a sharp blade for their cutting tools, and the claim to use lasers to cut the metal for the blade. After this, they use diamonds to grind the blades, to get them sharp and efficient for clean cutting.
- The 55 centimetre useable blade length makes it excellent for single passes and quick work.
- Teeth are spaced to accept and cut branches up to 1.9cm in thickness. This is the least cutting capability of the trimmer in my selected best trimmers (by 0.3cm+), but it depends if you intend to use it for thick branches.
- There is a small hand guard in front of the rail, but again it is more to stop stray branches getting stuck in the handle.
The control handle on the Einhell GE-PH 2555A Petrol Hedge Trimmer is rotatable by 90 degrees in either direction to help with control and vertical cutting. The engine is mounted on anti-vibration brackets to reduce fatigue on the user’s hands. The end of the blade it straight an active to the end, so there is some possibility of grazing the end of the blade along a wall.
This Einhell GE-PH 2555A Petrol Hedge Trimmer is a powerful trimmer for a good price, and the closest comparison is the 26cc Hyundai in terms of power and cost. Neither model has many extras, and Makita would be the brand that sits above both of them.
The front protection guard is larger than some of the other models, but not by much. The guard is minimal, to stop gloves getting caught at the beginning of the blades. The kill switch is mounted at the top of the control handle and will work for either left or right-handed individuals.

Pros & Cons
Overall, Einhell is hard to fault; they make great tools at very reasonable prices. As with a lot of the petrol hedge trimmers, safety does not seem to be the main concern. But then it is hard to make a power tool safe when an unprotected reciprocating blade is involved.
If you want to get the most for your money, the Einhell GE-PH 2555A Petrol Hedge Trimmer is going to be the best bet. The only other issue is the weight; that comes with using a larger motor, so this is a good unit for large long hedges. If you want to do some occasional trimming, a smaller, shorter unit is preferable.
Where should I purchase this Einhell GE-PH 2555 A 2-Stroke 25 cc Petrol Hedge Trimmer?
- Low-vibration two-stroke engine
- Quick start system for easy starting (auto choke)
- Safety cutters made of precision-ground special steel
- Centrifugal clutch for cutting tool
- Swivel handle +90/0/-90 degrees
