how do you like the single edge cut?Originally posted by QuadRacer041
just bought this last week, used it few times and its great so far. i love it.
was a little pricey though, $380
the single edge doesnt bother me at all, ive always used little wonder electric hedge trimmers (this is my first gas trimmer other then my stihl pole preuner) so im used to the single blade.besides for me i usually just start at one end and work my way down so i just keep cutting in the same direction and moving along down the shrub.Originally posted by BSDeality

it seems like you'd have to work 2x as hard cause you can only cut one way, as with a double blade you can cut back and forth.
I just bought a Shindaiwa 22DH for $280 and it's been good so far. done about 30 hedges with it. I need to get a few more in before i'll really decide if i like it.
what do you mean if the hedge is not laying right u have to walk to the other side and go in the oppisite direction?????Originally posted by 1MajorTom
I agree with BS Deality.
Say you have a hedge 300 ft long. You start at the right working your way to the left, as you are trimming with your one-sided hedge trimmer you are forced to trim in one direction. So when the hedge is not laying right when you are cutting it, you have to walk to the other side and go the opposite direction. Seems like a waste of time. 75% of the hedges I cut, I have to swing my trimmers both ways. To each his own.
Dam thats cheap I'll sub you out some jobs if you come to NJ. Try more like $150 per hourOriginally posted by EJK2352
I get $35-$40 per hr. for shrub trimming, plus a disposal fee. Echo HC150's are an excellent hedge trimmer. Do a search too, this topic has been discussed numerous times.
Geez' you get $150 for shrubs??? bobbygedd gets $24 per k for lawn apps. Guess it's time to make my move to Jersey. I wonder if the cost of living is 4x what it is here in Ohio, cause you guy's income is 4-6x what I'm making here??????????????Originally posted by turfmower
