I found a company that sells aftermarket hedge trimmer blades. I ordered a pair of Sthil blades today. They have a 1 year warranty i couldn't believe it. And they are made in USA. I called and talk to the people at Prune pro. the blades are to limit the amount of browning on shrubs tips and the edge stays sharper than factory. the blades are heat treated after the edge is put on.:usflag:

Thought i would share with everyone.

Have you tried them yet? Honestly they don't look like they would work very well. A normal blade has a larger opening that tapers down, these look like they would not catch the branch at all.

I'm not being negative, just making an observation. I am excited that they are selling blades for around $100, that's over half what Stihl charges for them.

Let us know how they work.

they look cool, but one problem, it does not indicate which models of each company the blades fit. Like Stihl, they sell a 24 inch set of blades, but which model do they fit? A 24 inch blade on an HS45 is different than one on a HS75-85, the connecting rod differs for the cam in the gearbox.

But short of that I want to try a set out.

They appear to work well. I wonder if they make them for my Stihl Kombi hedge trimmer head?

got thinking bout these today and the way the opening angles outward might will work for me. i'm thinking if it angled inward would seam to work better, being if cutting a hedge or something, i sometimes find myself pulling the trimmer towards me, if u follow.

i looked at it more like u cut side to side and going up and down a shrub. You would be cutting into to it more. :usflag:

I used the blades today. They work really well I cut throught over grown burning bushes and boxwoods along the driveway. I tried them on ground cover to see how they cut it back along the bed edge They cut very clean . I am impressed. I would recommend these to everyone I got a $10.00 mail in rebate with the set too.

Sounds like a great find. I'll bookmark their website so I'll have it when I'm ready to replace.
