    I'm getting a multi-tool (probably the 30cc Maruyama) and have a question. Maruyama offers three hedge trimmers:

    18" 140° articulating

    24" 270° articulating

    and 24" fixed

    I need to trim some rather deep 6-7ft tall thorny hedges. Is the 18" or 24" articulating a better choice?

    Thanks,

    David

    Why? Is the length important?

    longer length will help decrease multiple passes. plus with rotating head it will when doing tall hedges

    And thorny tall hedges are the problem!
