I assume you are referring to hedge trimmers? If so I use all Stihl.

Ahedger is a line of tall hedges that you plant between you and the guy next door (replaces the old time fence) :rolleyes:

I personally love the Echo HC-150 clippers.

They work very well and are very lightweight and they last me 3 to 4 seasons under pretty heavy use.

We use the Sithl HL45. Just long enough and fairly light weight. Have held up real well. We've had 3 with no problems over the past 2 seasons.

Isn't that slang for a Lady Bic? ;)







We use Stihl and Echo. Toros are decent but can't take the professional abuse as long as the other two.

I still think it's a Lady Bic or Gillette. Hedger, hedge-trimmer it's all the same.

The best one for me might not be the best for you but i really don't know because i don't use them . So the best one is the one that works best for you .And any one on here is gonna say the highest priced one you can buy i think thats B/S IMO

I've used My Echo HC1500 for 4 years without a glitch. I've tried others, and the next best would have to be John Deere's. The problem with most hedgers out there isn't the weight as much as the balance. Most of the ones out there don't sit balanced in your hands when you're holding them. Therefore more weight is supported by one hand, and the thing feels lop-sided. This can tire your arms out quickly. Pick it up and move it in all directions. Decide which is most comfortable to move around, and you've got a winner. Most of the ones out there have plenty of power.

Word of advice: If you go with the Echo (my choice) avoid getting it at Home Depot. I have nothing against the depot, but if you ever need warranty work done, they ship it to Echo and you get your equip back in about 6 weeks! spend the extra $5-10 you'll pay at the dealer, and they'll handle any problems on-site......Still no problems with mine, but if my 1 pair of hedgers has problems that I can't fix....I can't wait 6 weeks to get it taken care of.
