Looking for feedback on shindaiwa short(mid-reach) articulated hedge trimmers.....specifically trying to decide on shindaiwa's AHS242(2 stroke) vs. AHS2510(hybrid) or the split booms with attachment. Still not sure why some people don't like split booms and hybrids. I just know I don't like smelling 2 strokes all the time and emissions is better on hybrids. Anyone out there that's tried any or all the above? how do you like them? is the slower throttle response really noticeable on the hybrids?
