hedge trimmer

I am looking for an articulating hedge trimmer to put on the end of my srm-225 or srm-265. Do they make a head that I don't have to buy an entire unit?

Bought one for PAS 230 and dont like it..I used it once and has been stored ever since. I think they are too short of blade surface to really use it the way I wanted to. If youre dead set on wanting one, I'll sell you mine and ship it to you. Every time I see it I think about how to sell it..and they are 300 plus tax new

Well what do you guys recommend for getting to reach high hollies on the corners of apartment complexes? I have a big stihl hedge trimmer and love it! I also have a pole saw but that will not shape up the shrubs nicely. What are my other options?

I have the non articulating hedge trimmer and the 3' extension. And boy is it heavy. With everything it's about 10' from my body. Which means it feels like it weights about 100lbs.

Thats exactly what I use..the Echo PAS 230 with non articulating trimmer and 3' extension..I bought this because I use the chainsaw attachment sometimes too..its a heavy beast but if u have enough tall hedges to do, you tend to get fairly use to it. I make sure I schedule some every week so I dont have too much time in between using it and muscles get sore. Most of mine can be done from the bed of the truck (or roof) so goes faster than up and down ladder. Like I said before the articulating one does almost no good because only cuts about a foot in.

I've got the echo pas265 with about 6 different attachments and I really like the system for it's power and convenience. Yes it gets heavy but your level of production is huge that it's worth it. I have both the articulating and non-articulating heads. The only thing that I don't like is that about every 50 hrs or so I have to clean the carbon build-up out of the exhaust chamber.
