    The hedges are growing here in NC and the Stihl HS 81 are giving me a workout trying to reach the top. I have a Kawasaki KBL23A that I want to convert to a stick hedge trimmer. No one here on East Coast has one and they are on backorder from Kawasaki. Does anyone have one in stock that can ship? Part # 99971-0076

    Make sure it will fit you unit. I'm pretty sure the hedge att. is for the KGT27A and the 23 has a different shaft.

    The KBL23A uses a 6mm driveshaft and the KGT27A has a 7mm driveshaft. Kawasaki part # 99971-0076 is the correct part number for the KBL23A trimmer.

    I'll be going by my dealer tomorrow and it's very possible he'll have one, I'll let you know.

    The KBL23A series is now discontinued and accessories for them may be getting hard to come by.
