New hedge trimmer for junipers

I currently have a Stihl HS 85 but am not happy with it in trying to trim sculptured juniper shrubs. Any ideas for a new unit? Would like something with a shorter blade length and smaller teeth openings if possible.The Stihl will still be used to eat up the big stuff...
Thanks

Most any will do, as long as you keep them SHARP, and keep blades in adjustment. If you do a few junipers, maybe keep a trimmer just for that work so you don't need to sharpen/adjust so often.

Sounds like you want a home owner trimmer. Short bar, small teeth, etc..
