    Hi Folks,

    Anyone have a recommendation on a particular gas-powered hedge trimmer? I'm getting ready to buy one.

    I use a RedMax CHZ2400 with rotating handle which is easier and safer to operate. I plan on getting a Little Wonder extended reach trimmer with a 180degree rotating blade. they're the same as a RedMax but with the Little Wonder name and 180 blade instead of 90 degree blade.

    I'm diggin' my Echo 260 PAS with the articulating hedge trimmer attachment... If I had it to do over though I would get the power head and articulating trimmer from Stihl though just because of the fit and finish of the trimmer...

    Stihl MIGHT be good, but my personal experience with the one ihave is. It took almost 2 years to get them running the way they are supposed to run. I will never buy another stihl product again. When it comes to lawn maint. equipment. Nothing but trouble with mine. Maybe i got a lemon, not sure.

    buy an articulating short hedge trimmer. You will thank me later. longer reach. more ergonomic. costs a bit more but well worth it.
