Review Remington Power-X Series X6 HC6000: a lawn mower to match

Like the vast majority of mowers, the X6 Power-X Series HC6000 uses a cutting system based on oscillating blades. While the Enchen Boost had a ceramic cutting element, Remington’s model is less original and uses only steel. Above all, this allows us to offer a self-sharpening technology that should, logically, extend the life of the blades and maintain their sharpness.

The Remington X6 Power-X Series HC6000 top trimmer…

This head, precisely, measures 4.5 cm wide. We suspected it given the supernumerary heights of cut, but the X6 Power-X Series HC6000 is intended more for mowing large areas on the head (or body) than precision passages over small spaces on the face. It is true that it is still possible to use it to trim the beard, but it will take some difficulty to properly reach and maintain the narrow parts, in particular the philtrum, this space between the nose and the upper lip, or even the corners of the lips .

And from below.

The boomerang shape of the X6 Power-X Series HC6000 is reminiscent of the Philips HC5650/15. Once grasped, it holds well in the hand so as not to let go. The various handles that serve to further strengthen the good grip, especially when the mower is wet, are perfectly at hand. Add to that a relatively contained weight (213 grams) and here is a mower that is easy to handle, even if the mower is also the mower.

Mowers are never hard to master and the X6 Power-X Series HC6000 is no exception. A selector placed on the left of the machine turns on the device and allows you to switch to boost mode. The upper part houses a beautiful display, used to inform the user about the remaining autonomy. Good point, Remington ditches the inaccurate diodes for several minutes. It is true that the information is not exact to the minute, but it still allows you to anticipate the hairdressing session with serenity.

The screen is more accurate than what we are used to seeing.

The rest of the controls, located at the rear of the mower, consist of the cutting height adjustment knob. And first observation, it is extremely difficult to handle; Whether it’s increasing or decreasing values, you need deft, muscular fingers. Near this textured rotary knob, there are 3 indicators that correspond to the height of cut when one of the three combs supplied with the mower is attached. A color code helps to identify.

In addition to the three “fixed” clogs, Remington provides a final, articulated clog called “micro-precision cutting guideAlso equipped with a wheel that is much easier to handle than the one on the mower, it provides even more finesse in the adjustments thanks to its steps of only 0.1 mm.

Keep in mind that if the implementation of the guides is not a problem, it really is not a problem for their extraction. You have to pull them hard enough without having too much grip to get there and without being afraid of breaking them in the process.

Unlike other manufacturers, Remington does not highlight the origin of its blades or its exceptional sharpness. However, those of the Power-X Series X6 HC6000 are particularly effective. They officiate without blocking or pulling thick hair or finer hair, as can sometimes happen.

The Power-X Series X6 HC6000 is equipped with a hair density sensor and we found that it worked quite well. During our shaving and trimming sessions, we clearly heard the motor rev to match the conditions.

Given the width of the head, the Power-X Series X6 HC6000 is designed to be used on large areas such as the top or sides of the skull. Of course, it is always possible to trim the beard, but it is difficult to adequately treat small or narrow parts of the face that are difficult to access.

Which doesn’t help matters, Remington hasn’t provided any extra trimmers, nor any accessories to expand the versatility of its trimmer, such as a precision head or a tip for removing hair from ears or nostrils.

When the Remington Power-X Series X6 HC6000 is used on normal power, it can run for 68 minutes non-stop. By activating the boost mode, autonomy is necessarily reduced, but we can still expect to use it for 60 minutes. In both cases, the manufacturer’s promise (90 minutes) is not fulfilled. Good point, it is quite possible to use it when connected to the sector; this is not the case for all devices in our comparison.

This is where you plug in the power supply for charging.

It takes just over an hour and a half to recharge the device (106 minutes exactly). Remington has provided the mower with a micro-USB socket, which allows the use of a USB-micro USB cable, a standard that is still very widespread. However, the manufacturer provides a proprietary charger, certainly equipped with a micro-USB connector, but also with a plastic pin that prevents it from being used with another product. To limit the environmental impact, we would have preferred Remington to take their choice to the end and only provide the micro-USB cable, as Xiaomi does with the S500, for example.

The charger is too much.

point strengths

  • 72 cutting heights.

  • Display of the remaining autonomy in minutes.

  • Clean and neat cut.

  • It can work when plugged into mains power.

Weak points

  • Blade block too large for small areas.

  • Difficult to turn adjustment wheel.

  • Unpleasant noise.

  • Waste charger provided.

How does the rating work?

The Remington X6 Power-X Series HC6000 hair clipper is intended first and foremost for cutting hair, which explains its blades that are a bit too wide to be fully usable on the smaller areas of the face, and therefore its lack of versatility. However, thanks to its numerous hoof height adjustments, it will be the essential ally for lovers of fine slopes, who will appreciate its cutting quality even more.
