    When I was looking for a hedge trimmer, it was between the hs 45 and the one you got. I ended up going with the hs 45 because it has a 27 cc engine and the 56 has a 21. I have found that the hs 45 has the biggest engine on a hedge trimmer that i have seen so far. It has more than enough power. Im not saying yours is underpowered tho. I would rather have the 56 sometimes because it has a much bigger cutting bar and it is a lot lighter. So far im very happy with mine, and i hope that you are happy with yours too. Good luck man.

    I would stay away from Sears Home Depot or lowes models. A commercial brand will cost more up front but will outlast the others and you will not spend as much time or money on repairs

    Why not just get the hedge trimmer head for the stihl FS90 trimmer? Or is it too big to use realistically?
