stihl over shidiawa my personal opinion i like the way the sthil's trim better seem to be less bouncy, never tried redmax before though.....

Unless you are going to have some one working full time with one tool all day and have another and another to use in place of a break down look into the sthil kombi. It is more expensive but it saves trips back to home base to get another power unit and saves carring extra. I am going to retire my first unit to a less used job. It will become a specialty machine dedicated to pruning because it is going to have a shorter duty cycle. Otherwise buy disposable shindowa or red max and have at least 2 edgers & 2 whips get rid of the every couple of years.

I sold tree work for a local company for 2 years. No licensing, just insurance. The ISA has a "certified arborist" title they'll give you if you pass their exam.
