One of our local used car lots sells all kinds of stuff and every now and then they will have out some used 2 cycle gear and it is pretty beat uo most of the time. Well yesterday I was driving by and they had a pallet with some stuff on it and I spotted a hand held hedge trimmer. (All Stihl tools on the pallet) Well I stopped and it looked to be in really good shape, so I cranked it up in one pull and it sounded great and the blades are super tight. Needless to say I picked up the HS 45 (24" 2 sided) hedge trimmer for $75 tax included. Yes it is the homeowner model but shoot for the money, I could not resist. They look and run brand new. I dumped out the gas that was in it when I got home and put my own mix in it and greased up the gear box. I am really beginning to love Stihl equipment!!!!
