    My Echo HC-150 hedge trimmers seem to have a lot of vibration in them. Didn't realize it was that bad until I used a friends set(same model). It's almost like something is out of balance.

    Anyone else experienced this? What could be causing it?

    Ya got issues with the gearcase. Either the crank/eccentric bearings are out to lunch or the timing is off.
