    i just posted about this on the commercial forum and most of the responces suggested going with the STIHL or echo. Make sure that you buy from a brand with a dealer nearby

    get an hedge trimmer that goes with your pas system. those extended poles makes it so much easier to cut hedges.

    I use a HS45 hedge trimmer. Light, tough gearbox and does the trick.

    Edger I use a FC75 curve shaft, Light, tough and does the trick.

    Good luck.

    Good choice. I have both of them and they are both great machines.
