    hi, its coming time that i buy a hedge trimmer for this property i have that needs a lot cut, and i think that i could defineatey offer hedge trimming as a service soon, but i have a question. I was at home depot today and there were 2 gas hedge trimmers(electric isnt an option for me), and they were a Ryobi 26cc 22" for $179, and an Echo 21cc 20" for $279. which one is beter quality, and better for the $? well i mean is the echo worth its price?

    I agree - get something better. Tanaka is a great choice and they stand behind the product. The longer the better.

    I use mine a few times a week. Every customer I have has hedge/shrubs, something that needs trimming.

    i guess this would be the easiest question to ask...what brand should i buy? and what brands do you guys use?
