    I get $35-$40 per hr. for shrub trimming, plus a disposal fee. Echo HC150's are an excellent hedge trimmer. Do a search too, this topic has been discussed numerous times.

    I agree - I like the Echo HR1500 too - I also have a couple of pair of the HR1600 which tend to prefer a little more. The blade is longer and gives a little better cut/easier. If you're in it for the long run, buy yourself a pair of the extended reach trimmers. We've got an Echo that's a component power pak - with the hedge trimmers (extended 6ft reach) - got them for a steal - near brand new at a pawn shop for $75 - (new they're about $350-400!)! Anyway - those trimmers are great and will make you A LOT of money - because you'll be able to get the jobs that everyone else needs ladders and scaffolds for. Much worth the Money! Good Luck.

    My friend used to barrow my hedge trimmers. He finally bought a pair of Tanaka's for himself. I tried them out and they seem pretty decent. I still prefer the Echo's.
