    Any suggestions on which gas trimmers are best to get? Is it better to get the bi-directional trimmers or just one-sided trimmers? Thanks.

    Sounds like your talking about hedge clippers??

    If so, get the Echo HC-150 double sided commercial clippers for $249....they rock and have saved me a ton of time over the years!!

    I like the double sided hedge trimmers. I don't like the way that you hold on to the single sided ones. Also, you can go back and fourth with a double , but not a single.

    Hmmmm, let's see. This mid size trimmer will trim at ground level without bending over, will reach 10 feet without a ladder, is balanced and has the engine behind you so you don't get smoke in your face. Err........ yeah, I guess it's pretty good. I think Echo is the only people making this size. Sticking a trimmer head on the your weed wacker makes the unit too long for regular use. Just my opinion.

    Now just sell those old, outdated, vibrating, smokey Chainsaw types, buy a mid size and you can join the rest of us Professionals. I dumped my chainsaw types years ago. And, I can now see why you use ECS controls, too;......... You just like making work harder than it should be.

    Hey now, what's wrong with being a Shemale?? Could be a lot of fun:blush:
    Now as far a making you look like an idiot, as a big boy, you know "I" can't do that. Frankly, since I've used the exact models you own for quite a few years one might think you may want to take a few minutes and go to your local dealer and "actually" try a mid size machine. Then, after you find you can do more work, in less time, with less effort, you may actually thank me for the advice. However, continuing to use an outdated product, and similarly your dislike of the Hustler from "hearsay" information, does seems take the work out of “making you” look like an idiot.

    Maybe if take more time increasing your mind strength instead of "arm" strength you may see I'm trying to help you.
