    i can't say it's the best because i haven't used any others, but i have a echo with the articulating head and love it. i think it was around 450.00 but i'm not sure it was a couple of years ago now.

    Echo articulated is what I just bought about a month ago. I love them!! I used to borrow my friends Redmax articulated, but it seemed every time I needed to use them, he would have a job to do with them. I got tired of the hassle and bought my own. I payed around $450 and they are worth every penny. The Redmax is a very good unit too.:) ;) :) ED

    I have the Stihl and like it very much. I've looked at the articulating head ones, but find them to just be too heavy at the end.

    I have been using an Echo articulating type (90 degrees) for bout 6 or 7 years now. I love it.

    It has paid for itself many many times over...that I know.

    I have an Echo articulating hedge trimmer that I love. It has paid for itself many times over. I've used a friends Red Max and really liked it. If I ever need a second one, I'll probably get the Red Max. Same fuel mix. You'll be willing to do more shrub work once you have one. Good luck.

    We have a stihl FS85 split boom with the articulating hedge trimmer attachment. It works great and cuts very well. We paid about $200.00 for the attachment.
