Thats not bad, but when you want to get one to last look at Redmax, Shindaiwa.

I have used echos 1500 from home depot and they worked great but I had to go out and buy something bigger and badder and got shindaiwa's 30 inch model that sit in the garage most of the time.
they are a lot better but cost a lot more.
Both are good
I will have more problems with lack of used more than over use.
Love what you are doing or find something else to do!:

eBay! I got a BRAND NEW Husqvarna 326HS75 single sided 28" set for $189. This is a $399-$439 pair of hedgies depending on where you shop. The deals are out there. You can get a really good piece of equipment for the price of the lesser models or used stuff if you shop around online.
