    Echo HC 150. Light enough to run all day. Reasonably priced too.

    My favorite is the TMC. Fastest blade speed on the market. Unfortunately the distributor in my area is a tard. Can't get parts or new machines. I do have a stock of parts that has run thin and have begun parting out from older machines. I have 9 in inventory.

    Other than the TMC. Redmax has a very nice machine. Lighter than TMC, a bit slower blade speed. Much Quieter. Blades hold the edge for a while. 5 in inventory.

    Not familiar with the Echo. Think I did not like the design, definitely did not like the Stihl design

    I will have to agree with everyone else and say the echo 1500, it light weight and plenty of power.

    Greenman,

    Why would you buy a "Homescaper" hedge clipper to use commercially? Stihl admits that it is a home owner light duty machine.

    I have used Echo HC-1500 (now 150's) for years with excellent service. They have lasted me as long as 5 seasons which I feel is excellent. I have recently swiched to the HCR-150 (rotating handle) because we are doing more and more hedges.

    Echo HC-150, HCR-150 are excellent machines at very reasonable prices!!
