I have a hedge trimmer, but i could really use a tree trimmer/pruner. I was looking at really cheapos, like the poulan pro for 125$ on ebay, but figured it would only last a few times. What do you guys use? Like? also which ones have a good weight balance to em, so when you have em over your head it isnt hard to balance it? Bassically, can i get a good one for around $300? im looking for one that has an arm of 12"
