LOL, I hate when people ask to borrow my stuff, so I would do the same. And I just found out that I have an older Toro power head with the trimmer already on it out in the garage. I forgot I even had it. My buddy gave it to me because it was not an Echo, so now I just need to grab the hedger and power pruner head and hope it lasts through at least one year. If I buy these attachments refurbished it will only be $90. I know they are junk, but for under 100 bucks I have to at least try. Echos hedge trimmers are 300 and their power pruner is 550 or so for the small one, and that is just too rich for me at this point.
Thanks for the info.
