    Unless you are going to have some one working full time with one tool all day and have another and another to use in place of a break down look into the sthil kombi. It is more expensive but it saves trips back to home base to get another power unit and saves carring extra. I am going to retire my first unit to a less used job. It will become a specialty machine dedicated to pruning because it is going to have a shorter duty cycle. Otherwise buy disposable shindowa or red max and have at least 2 edgers & 2 whips get rid of the every couple of years.

    Anyone on here do tree removal/trimming? Do you need any licensening for this?

    I sold tree work for a local company for 2 years. No licensing, just insurance. The ISA has a "certified arborist" title they'll give you if you pass their exam.
