Questions regarding hedge trimmers

I need to decide between a HS 81 T and an HS 81 R Stihl Hedge trimmer. The difference between the blades is

R model blade designed for rejuvenation and heavy pruning.

T model blade designed for trimming and sculpting.

Which one would be the best to get. I can only afford one at the moment.

Which would I likely use the most? Will the T model suffice with hand pruners for heavy pruning?
