We use Echo's HC1500 and Hc 1600 along with PAS 260's with straight shafts and articulated shafts. We use the HC-series for low shrubs and the PAS's for taller ones.

Thanks. Hmmmm, kinda dumb to post a UK website. I didn't even check. Anyway, here's the correct website to view. This is one of the units I use...... Of course you need to get rid the "stupid" holding handle on the machine, since your arm will fall off in about 10 minutes, if you use it the way they suggest. Also, since it weighs about same as a weed wacker, weight isn't a problem. And yes, I think Redmax has a similar type unit, too.

The double sided & mid size are a good tool for novices to learn on & for doing some smaller fine hedging. We carry them for the new guys. Once you get the hang of these, however, you never go back to double.

My Stihl HS45 is a good machine, regardless of "skill level" or "application." We have a LOT of pampas grass removal in my area and it's especially good for that. I bought it specifically for it's size so I could get in and out of tough and tight spots. Opinions vary.

Johny,

http://alamia.com/ Ask for Jeff... he has taken good care of me as I live on the Oregon/California border.... Where in California are you?

I bought one after reading Switchless suggestions (Thanks again) and found it to be a little different feel at first, but am now getting a feel for it and am using it more and more.... just takes a little time to feel comfortable....

Good Luck, Clay
