I thought of going low grade due to the fact I don't do much trimming, but you never know, I could get inundated with hedge work and it will be nice to have the better quality stuff. My trimmers are Kawasaki as is my blower and I could not be happier. They start every time 1st pull.

The only difference I could see between the set I bought vs the next step up was the engine size. The gearbox and blade assembly were the same from what I could tell. After cutting some overgrown yaupon hollies today, it didn't bog down the slightest bit.

Right now, I only have 17 accounts of which only half require shrub trimming. Of those that require shrub trimming, there's only about 6-7 shrubs per house. The other half of my accounts are new construction homes built within the last year so their shrubs won't even need any trimming til probably next year.

If in the future, I feel like I need something better, I'll upgrade then. In the big scheme of things, hedge trimmers aren't really that big of an expense.
