    Go with a commercial brand. It will be the only one you buy. I use a Maruyama. It has the Kawisaki engine. Works great. I used it about 5 hours today. No problem at all. The Homelite is OK. I had a Homelite backpack blower when I first started. It got the job done but it soon died because it is not cut out for the commercial use.

    I have also heard a lot of good things about Stihl, Husquavarna and Red Max.

    Good luck.

    If that is what you can afford right now go for it. After how often do you use them? I have a double sided Weed Eater Hedge trimmer and it works fine for as much as I use it. It does the job it was made for. If you have the extra cash buy a Sthil .

    I agree with klite, for what you will need them for they sould do the job, but when you have more use for them, get a stihl.
