    The problem is, you cannot buy anything good at Lowes, so you will just end up with another brand of junk. Take it back for a cash refund and go to a regular dealer. Tanaka makes great hedge trimmers btw.

    No, Troybuilt is junk and not meant to be used heavily. They may be OK for homeowners, but if you're using the machine to make a living with, buy commercial.

    Go to Home Cheapo, they sell ECHO now, makes me wonder if the Retail equipment is all going to be crap. No way I would buy a hand held unless it was a commercial piece of equipment and from a dealer.

    NO big box store sells Stihl, they only sell thru independent dealers, and they say they will never allow their products to be sold in big box stores. But I wouldnt be surprised if they did sometime in the future. Dealers around here were pissed when Husqvarna started selling at Lowes, but I think there is a quality difference in trimmers bought at lowes and the huskys sold at dealers. Husqvarna used to be considered a great brand, but when they sold out and dealt with lowes, their standing went way down with many people.
