I think that is a good choice. You'll find no or very few bad reviews here. The 326 engine is very reliable, easy starting. when I was in the market that time, they were out of stock and Shindaiwa had a promotion right at the time that I get a free string trimmer attachment with it. With the ok experience of the M242, I would buy the Husky if I were to do it again.

Short articulate trimmer is very handy, you don't need to even buy a regular hedge trimmer unless you are seriously into hedge trimmer.....I mean almost sculpting. Everything you can do with a regular hedge trimmer can be done nicely with the short articulate. I only went out and get a 30" because of my rolls of boxwoods are getting very tall and I am getting more and more picky with the work. Also I start to do ball shrubs where the pole hedge trimmer is just too clumpsy.....at least that's what I told my big boss ( wife) why I need a new toy!!!!
