Thats ok,thanks for the info yeah you are right,i kinda compared it for a while cause now i just have a electic hedger,but i think it might work for me since i dont do alot of hedge trimming just at my place really and a few others,yeah i really see what you are sayin though the blades on a echo and redmax or thicker and stronger and engine is bigger,yeah,thanks for the info.

I have the same hedge trimmer the amount of time I use a trimmer it works fine. I don't do much bush trimming (hahahahahah) so I don't need a commercial trimmer.
