    There is a difference from using a mobile platform with an electric hedge trimmer and hanging a running lawn mower over a hedge.

    I was told (can't verify) that Montgemry Wards lost a big lawsuit because their powered lawn mowers did not have 'Caution do not grab sides with your hands' (or similar wording).
    Story had it some bright guy grabbed his mower and held it high planning to walk while he trimmed hedge tops. Naturally he lost 8 fingers.

    Wow. Maybe that is why they went out of business.

    Lots of different ways to trim hedges, here is the industrial dangerous way. I believe this machines been operating for a few decades. If its the machine I have heard about it has cut through power poles, bridge heads, and at least one parked car
