Rent a kombi system.
My local place has an echo hca 2620 for rent. I'll probably do that to save some frustration.Rent a kombi system.
Why is he wearing ear protection???? Also he is a hacker, should of deep pruned it......The ego multi tool will do it. Not sure you'll get it done on the 5 ah battery that comes with it though. I've not used mine on thick material but on the thinner stuff I get about 2 hours out of that battery.
I wear ear protection always - cordless or gas.Why is he wearing ear protection???? Also he is a hacker, should of deep pruned it......
1" branches? Nope.I've got a lady that called about finishing a hedge row her husband started. 230 linear feet, 6ft deep. Maintained part is 5ft tall, uncut part is 8ft. The only long reach trimmer I have is a Lowe's special pole attachment on a craftsman power head. I'm sure the branches in these things are going to be thicker than what my trimmer will do. I'm not really trying to buy a Kombi or PAS system. I had been telling myself I was going to get an ego pole trimmer when I needed one, since most of what I do is fairly well maintained. Never done long hedge row before.
EGO says their trimmer will do 1" branches. Can anyone confirm they've used it on some thicker stuff? I may see what the rental place has to rent also.
I'm not sure how long it will take me since I haven't done hedges like this. I'm thinking charge $2.50/linear foot plus dump fee.
30 years of using power tools, I wear ear protection for everything. Always have, always will. I've never known a single person who's lost their hearing say anything good about itI wear ear protection always - cordless or gas.
There's still noise and it also prevents crap/bugs from getting in your ears when the stuff starts flying.
That's a good idea. Reminds me a little of how we pruned Ficus trees in San Francisco, minus the shaping afterward. From the outside they naturally sort of look like a big round hedge but we'd climb them and prune from the inside rather than the outside. Basically making largish (say 1"-2") cuts with handsaws down inside the canopy to thin/reduce the canopy leaving the growth on the branch ends untouched and natural looking.I’d get up in there w some good clippers and cut as much of the 1” stuff as I could reach by hand. . And cut them a few inches lower than the intended “top” of the hedge. Then shape the top of the hedge with the stringier stuff that’s left over
