Hyundai HYT2622-3 Review – Petrol Hedge Trimmer Cutter
The Hyundai HYT2622-3 Petrol Hedge Trimmer, another great value trimmer from Hyundai, this time with a larger motor and more power. The large motor on this Hyundai HYT2622-3 Petrol Hedge Trimmer adds to the weight, but the longer blade gives it more functionality. For some reason, Hyundai went with a small tank on this model.
- 2-Stroke, 26cc, 10500rpm, Muffler
- Double Reciprocating, 75cm (29.5in)
- Rotatable Handle, Fixed U-Shaped Front Rail
The engine on this Hyundai HYT2622-3 Petrol Hedge Trimmer is a 2-stroke, 26cc power unit that abides by the EU sound and air pollution laws. The 2-stroke runs on a 40:1 fuel/oil mix, which is still a low oil content. The motor runs the blades through a geared transmission, which helps to increase cutting pressure at the blades.
The maximum speed of the engine is very high for a trimmer, accelerating to 10500 rpm, so you should be able to get through a hedge at a decent rate. This large engine does have a detrimental effect on its mass, and this comes in at 6kg (dry weight). You will not want to hold this above your head for too long.
To give you a visual representation of this Hyundai HYT2622-3 Petrol Hedge Trimmer see the video below:-
The Hyundai HYT2622-3 Petrol Hedge Trimmer uses the standard dual-cutting blade to help you keep the line on your cutting. At the end of the blade is a rounded mount to help the long blade glide over the end branches with ease.
- The blade is 75cm long with a 66cm usable length. The guide at the far end reduces the actual length.
- This trimmer is rated to cut a 28mm branch, though if you have anything thicker than this to cut, you would be better off using a saw or a pair of shears.
- This has a shrapnel guard, but again it is not huge, and its purpose is more to control the direction of branches. Any user should use safety goggles.
The main control handle on the Hyundai HYT2622-3 Petrol Hedge Trimmer will rotate 90 degrees, left or right. So that you can hold the trimmer at the best angle, the front handle is a U-shaped bar. Both handles would accommodate a left-handed person. Except for the power switch, which only works for a right-handed person, lefties would need to change hands.
The fuel tank is mounted under the engine with a high spout that jets out the side to make refuelling quick and safe. The position of the opaque tank makes it easy to see how much fuel you have left. The air filter is also easy to open and take out for cleaning on this Hyundai HYT2622-3 Petrol Hedge Trimmer.
The Hyundai is well made, but a little less so than the Einhell. In the end, both motor technologies are very similar, and the big difference is in the blades. Einhell, Makita, and McCulloch all have superior blades, and this is the part that matters more than engine power.
To start the engine on this Hyundai HYT2622-3 Petrol Hedge Trimmer, you need to lock the throttle open. And to accelerate the engine, you need to keep your thumb pressed on the safety trigger. The kill switch is the most important part, and for some reason, it is set out of the way. And as previously pointed out, it would be impossible for a left-handed person to use it in a hurry.
The front guard is not the smallest we have seen in a trimmer, but it is close. A small guard does have the benefit of not obstructing your view of what you are cutting. But you have to wonder why they moved from a sensible larger guard to what all the trimmer manufacturers use now.

Pros & Cons
The Hyundai HYT2622-3 Petrol Hedge Trimmer is larger than the other models, and the weight is something that will fast become clear. The larger engine size offers the promise of getting the job done faster, so even if it is heavier, you will not be holding it up for long.
Also, the fast reciprocation speed gives the blade the extra momentum they need to get through thicker branches. A good machine for a great price, the control handle looks as if it could have been made a little stronger for a 6.8kg machine.
