Anyone trim Topiarys and with what?

I need to trim some spirals and balls. My stihl hedge trimmer is to big. And I tried hand shears but to slow. Any suggestions from anyone who trims alot of these. I dont do nothing fancy with them, just need to keep their perfect round shape and spirals.

Gas hedge trimmers work fine for us, so does hand shears. If your slow, keep practicing

What size hedge trimmers are you guys using?

Does anyone on this site do animal shapes or really detailed art trimming?

If your worried about getting it done fast this won't work. But if your worried about doing it right and getting it right use hand pruners. Felco #2 are are good ones. You can get em from sherril arborist supply.
