    Well, after i got done landscaping today i had 3 hedge trimming jobs to do, with quite a bit of bushes. and i got sick of my home verison electrial one, so i went to my dealer and bought a Echo HCR 1500... and BOY oh BOY I LOVE this thing! its great, and i really like how the handle swivles. its great, i cut my time more than half! i trimmed bushes for 5 hours, and it already paid for itself!!! its going to make me quite a bit of money for next jobs. I paid $318 with tax.

    I got one of those and love it too. Mine is 4 years old and all I've ever done to it is gas it up and change it's air filter.

    Still runs and cuts great.

    hedge trimmers are great they are about the only investment In our trade I know that can be 250-650 dollars and pay for them selfs in a day. Wish ZTRs had that kind of return

    Be careful though. I know a guy that cut his finger off Sunday using a pair!

    Titan, how'd he do that? Was he using it according to safety instructions or did he get in a hurry?
