What do I do if the hedge trimmer cuts unevenly?

If the cutting result is not even, the blades may be blunt or loose, or the hedge may be too big to be trimmed effectively with the hedge trimmer. The operating instructions show you how to adjust the tension between the blades and how to sharpen them. It is important to wear protective gloves at all times when you are making these checks. The blades are extremely sharp and should not be touched.
