    Can I get a stihl with a pole saw AND hedger attachment. I know I can get either, or, but can I get one power unit with both, detachable?

    Gracias

    Yes.
    We use the hedge trimmer and chain saw attachment on both weed eater shafts and telescoping shaft.

    Any issues with power? Is this shaft or cable drive? Also, about what does this set up cost (power unit and both attachments, on the telescoping shaft)?

    Thanks!

    Yes. We used to use a Sthil pole pruner at work and you can remove and put a hedge trimmer. Can do this with Echo as well.

    No idea what it costs. We get what we need.

    Sthils polwesaw and Echo power Prunners were running in the neighborhood of 600 when I last looked (about 3 years ago) about the same time I inquired about Echo and their hedge trimmer head was about 250-60 I think. Not cheap. Also we decided not to go that route because while the pole saws had extended reach they were not comfortable to hold for all the hedge trimming. Was on the heavy side.

    Power head, extended saw and hedger attachment about $750 beans throw in one more extension and make it an even $800
