    I have owned Stihl, Tanaka, Shindiawa, Little wonder. I liked the old Tanakas the best until they changed the engines on them, the new tanakas are gutless and dont rev up anymore. Didnt really like the stihl. I have had a Shin DH230 for 2 years now, I think its the best. I just bought a Little Wonder, which is basicialy a Echo, it wont rev like the Shin. Its pretty good but I still like the Shin the best.And thats what I am going to buy from now on.

    Ah shindaiwa, again lol..

    How do you guys sharpen the hedge trimmer's teeth?

    You only use a bastard file right?

    So do I and I hate mine. I'm thinking about going back to electric trimmers over gas. Then again, I hate doing bushes and would just like to not have to trim anything.

    I just bought the Redmax 2400 hedge trimmer about 3 weeks ago. They work great.
