    Chef...

    The Echo HC-150 is an excellent hedge clipper! Very lightweight and commercial duty. I have used the HC-1500/150's for a long time with great success!

    If you do a ton of hedges buy the HCR-150 with the rotating handle....makes life a lot easier and it is only $50 more!

    PS. Buy your hedge clipper from a local dealer and you will have better parts and service support in the long run!

    Somebody stole my Redmax hedge trimmers last fall. I looked at the new Redmax's w/ anti vibration handles and thought they were a little too heavy and a little too pricey. I ended up buying the Echo HC150's. They are every bit as good as the Redmax that they replaced and the handle set up is more comfortable. I give them a big 2 thumb's up!!! The best part is the price $299 !!!! Thats $125 less than the Redmax

    I bought the HCR-1500 for 269.95.
    Its good equipment for general trimming. Power to weight ratio is very good.

    Chef,

    You should buy the HC-150 from a local servicing dealer! You will pay the same price $249 for the non rotating handle and have the parts and service support that you need.

    Same price, better service = no brainer!!...stay away from the box stores whenit comes to equipment!
