    50 and shorts are you kidding? its 6:28 and 48 here and in 30 min all my guys will show up in long pants and coats, I guess were just sissys. Why so tall on the hedges? I have always wondered why people let the hedges get so tall in more confined areas. In larger open areas I can understand its a scale issue but in more confined areas I don't see the point of any over 8-ft. Cool ladder too. No criticism just curious.

    She, it's not a "weedwacker" or trimmer it's an extended reach hedge trimmer. Go to Stihl's website and check them out.
