Picked up my new SHC-210 hedge clippers 2 weeks ago and all I got to say is, Holly Toledo Batman. These clippers are great. They are well balanced, exhaust is behind you, and there is 31"s of clipper. I have used it on 5 properties and can say the only problem some people would have is trimming real short hedges. I have another set of the regular trimmers, just the Weed Eater brand, that I think will never see the light of day again. No more sore back from leaning over all the time. Thanks Switchless, I read one of your posts before I made my purchase. I have not used alot of hedge trimmers, but I do like these. I used them Saturday for over an hour straight, up and down, over my head and under the shrubs and I was not sore at all, just alittle sweaty.
