Today i went to my dealer to get my blades sharpened and i decided to buy a new set of hedge clippers. I wanted to spend $250-300 and i looked at the stihl, echo and redmax clippers. the redmax and echo looked alittle cheezy and the sthil HS-45 looked to be the best of the three. i was about to but them for $289 which probaly would have been $280-270 with my discount. the stihl also had a two year warranty. well i left to go check another dealer i never dealt with and he ended up selling me tanaka clippers for $350 after tax. they have a 24" bar like the stihl but a smaller motor they also came with only a one year warranty. did i make the right decision? has anyone dealt with tanaka equipment. it seems nice and has some nice features but i spent $50 more so im hoping i made the right choice.
