    Any of you have this problem or is it just me? Some of my shrubs are brown a day after trimming. I think it's caused by the exhaust. Am I moving too slow while trimming or could something else be causing the shrubs to turn brown? I'm using the lube on the blades from Husky, not supposed to hurt the shrubs. Any ADVICE on how to CORRECT this problem will be greatly APPRECIATED.

    It might be your trimmer needs sharpening. That will cause it.

    Yews tend to get a burned look after trimming even with sharp
    blades. It usually goes away after about 2 weeks. ED
