Im looking for a simples/cheap hedge trimmer but I want a realiable brand. If you were looking for a cheap 18+ inch single side trimmer, Which would you get?

If someone like a single edge trimmer, I would sure like to hear why.

I can't image what it would be like to lack the freedom of the back and forth cutting to groom stems from both directions.

What reason would there be?

I wish I knew.

I picked up a used Stihl off of Ebay last fall.

I was just looking for the cheapest way out. I wont use it very often, but when I do need it, it seems to be pretty good sized jobs( to big for my hand tools)
Which cheap hedge trimmer would you recommend?

Since it will hardly ever be used, what homeowner brand would you recommend the most? I know yall will say they are all crap, but one has to be better then the other. Homelite, Ryobi?????

I like the stihl hs 45 its like 279.95 double sided 18inch blade awesome cut. you can get it in the hs t or just hs the T is for actual cutting and shearing the hs is for pruning.
