Good unit but take a look at the HS81t the blade speed is so much faster and my hands don't tingle after using it . Also it has the adjustable handle.

I have found no need for trimmer to compliment the extended reach trimmers... I would just get an echo short extended reach trimmer... they seem to be better for boxwoods and fine trimming. But the stihl extended reach is by far the stoutest trimmer out there. That is my experience, and we probably trim 20-30k of hedges a year.

Mine is great! It works really well and it is light. I would buy another set any day.

Purchase an HS 45 in the spring. The unit has done a great job all year. Plenty of power. Had a friend buy a high end RedMax at the same time. Red Max was higher in price but the 45 seem to be as powerful and versitile as the more expensive unit.

I love mine. The improvement over an electric one is not even comparable. I don't use it very often so I didn't think I needed the HS80. Too big and too expensive. You'll like the hs45.
