I paid $318 with tax.

I got one of those and love it too. Mine is 4 years old and all I've ever done to it is gas it up and change it's air filter.

Still runs and cuts great.

hedge trimmers are great they are about the only investment In our trade I know that can be 250-650 dollars and pay for them selfs in a day. Wish ZTRs had that kind of return

I also have a pair. You will not be disappointed. I have had mine for 3 years now. No problems.

Be careful though. I know a guy that cut his finger off Sunday using a pair!

Titan, how'd he do that? Was he using it according to safety instructions or did he get in a hurry?
