    i have seen the durability and power in the hs- 80 hedge trimmers, but how are the hs-81's? they seem fragile and week, just my 1st thoughts when handleing them at the dealer.

    I had a brand new set of hs -81t hedge trimmers used it to prune to bushes and they seemed to tear the bush and keep in mind these were brand new.I took them back and went and bought a pair of echo 165's and they are a power house and about 50 bucks cheaper
