I am looking to purchase a new gas hedge trimmer and was looking at brands like husqavarna and echo. What is the best trimmer for the price. If anyone has a specific trimmer that has been well worth the price please tell me.

Here it is- I got it from the guy across the street (man, God knows how many times ive said that on this site LOL :eek: ) for $30!!! :D I REALLY love the 180* rotating handle a bunch! It took a can of carb dleaner to get all the grease and soot from the exaust port and all the sap off of the bar, but I swear it looks like it just came off the shelf!

$30!!!!:blob3:

Man, I'm jealous of that deal. That was quite a steal you got. I'll buy that off you for $35 :eek:

I am using the HS 45, as we don't do too many hours on bushes, and the lightweight is a little easier to handle.

If he can consistently sell things like this so cheap, I'd watch out where he's getting them from.
If he's legit, I think he'd be asking a bit more for what he's selling. Just something to watch out for, in case someone happens to be missing some tools, and sees you with them :angry:

dude, he gets them from work! He is the manager of a multimillionare maintenance appartment complex biz. He get all the stuff they dont want any longer and gets parts for next to nothing prices (they buy in bulk). Just cool it down, I know for a fact its legitamate. Ive been there.

Picked up the Tanaka 2401 (?) 6 months ago. Love it. Burns a bit a gas however. But the thing just keeps cuttin'.

I've used Husq. and Stihl. I'd repurchase a Tanaka hedger with out thinking.

Cordially,
S.
