    Looking at getting a set of hedge trimmers and wondering which ones. They will be stihl but I just don't know which ones to get. I just need the regular ones probably about a 24" bar. I was thinking the 81T but they will not be used a great deal just here and there. Would the HS 45 hold up alright. Will probably be used 2-3 times a year.

    That's the ones I use. Never a problem and plenty of power. I like the two side cutting bar.

    I have had the HS45 with the 24 inch blades for 3 years, they will be fine, takes a few pulls to get going, but other than that it runs like a top.
