    I have a Stihl HS-45. QuadRacer01 recommended another good choice but I thought it was rather heavy. I'll stick with my HS-45. Never had a problem with it in 2 years so far.

    It helps to have something light if you will be trimming things tall, like shoulder tall. Otherwise it will hurt your back and shoulders. I have used echo and stihl. I prefer stihl for all handheld equipmeent, exept hedgetrimmers where i prefer echo. Lightweight, and still have the power you will need. Exxtended trimmer is well worth it if you want to spend the money.
