I'll sell the Kawasaki's for $250 in Feb. 26cc, 24" double sided, and twice the blade tip speed of any brand I've seen. 1 commercial warranty

Ok here is my 2 cents worth. I dont do alot of trimming but ive had the homelite and weedeater brand and I dont think they were worth bringing home. I purchased the stihl hs45 that are light commercial / homeowner and I am very pleased with them and they are pretty heavy duty. Worse thing I can say about them is they are a LIL heavy, they sell for $275 which is only $100 less than the redmax. Finally you will have less headaches from the kawa, redmax, stihl, echo than an elcheapo pair. Maybe use this as a test to see what other brand makes good equipment if you have been interested in another brand

My dealer, who sells both Redmax and Kawasaki, tells me the Redmax hedge trimmers have a weak transmission. He pushes the Kawasaki hedge trimmers. Anyone else heard of this?

All other 2 cycle stuff he recommends Redmax.

search eBay. I got my Echo HC-150 (I think that's the model) real cheap. Brand new in box too.
I've since bought a Tanaka (also off ebay) which I use more, but the echo is still a good cheap starter clipper.

Hello,

I just bought a boatload of brand-new Redmax stuff, and I'm ready to let go of some used items. (gently used by myself and employees under direct supervision).

I have a used Redmax STRZ2500 (short boom hedge trimmer) Strato Charged I can sell, and also a used Redmax CHT2300.

Can post pics if interested. Price will be fair: $350 for the LRTZ and $150 for the CHT2300.

no offense (good cheap) probably not going to happen. If you need them for a couple of jobs and don't think you will ever have a need for them go cheap. personally I always try to figure more for the job and go good even if it doens't quite cover it figuring that down the road it will pay off. This attitude has almost always worked out,

My favorites are the Red Max 40 inch. Pay big money once, it'll save time( which is money) in the long run. After I bought my first 40inch clippers, the 30 inch ones were a TOTAL WASTE OF TIME. I got rid of 3 -30 inchers cheap, so my help wouldn't waste my time again. Red Max weighs a little less than Maryama(1st 40 inchers I ever saw & bought) gear boxes all look the same to me-(echo/Redmax/Maryama) never a problem in 20 years.

I have always found the words "good" and "cheap" to be intellectually contradictory. That being said, I have had very good service from a pair of Stihl HS45 hedge trimmers. They are built for the Homeowner, yet have performed flawlessly for me commercially. Go figure.

Good Cheap Hedge Trimmers...

GOOD - well if you are going to work with them, they better be good. I have found the 21cc Tanakas to be powerful. Also, they have the exhaust on the RIGHT side so you don't choke so much from the fumes! Just sharpen the blades a few times a season.

CHEAP - watch ebay.
