    I picked up a hs80 stihl a couple of weeks ago. It has a 30inch cut and a swivle handle. I really like it, but the thing is heavy. I do some bush trimming, and wanted a really good one around for the few jobs I do, and for any future jobs I get. Most of my customers use companies who do nothing but landscaping work for their bushes, fine with me as I hate trimming them, but will do some. I picked mine up for 359 plus tax and got them to throw in a brick of stihl highperformance 2cyl mix for 2.5gal gas cans.

    I'm switching from my gas hedge trimmers to a generator + electric trimmers.

    Why are you doing that?

    Have you ever held a pair of electric hedge trimmers for an hour after holding gas hedge trimmers? A heckuva lot easier to use.
