Which Hedge Trimmer? I'm attempting to purchase a hedge trimmer and have narrowed the field down to two. The Husqvarna 326HD75x and The Stihl HS 80 The Husky is about $420 and the Stihl is about $389 I priced electronic ignition modules and the Husky was about $60-65 and the Stihl is about $30. I've heard that the Husky is a little easier to work on. Its rotate-able handle seems a little more stout and easier to use. There is only one store, reasonably close to me (Tacoma area), that sells the Husqvarna hedger. Plenty that sell some of the, saws and mowers. However, there are many, many Stihl dealers. My biggest complaint of the husky. Other than the price. I know nothing about how the two perform or their durability. Any suggestions? Any experience with either, both? If so what did you like and didn't like? Which came first? Which company seems more innovative? I mostly prune a long hawthorn hedge, but will use it in other areas including scotch broom and black, thimble, and salmon berries, and conifer and other trees. I already have a Stihl trimmer/clearing saw. I could get the hedger attachment for the Stihl but it is about as much as buying the complete hedger. I may purchase the pole hedger attachment latter. I will probably have the hedger in excess of 30 years, easily. My chain saw is a Stihl 045 super 5.0 from the 70's. The Stihl trimmer is 15 years old. :up Any experience with other brands is acceptable too. Please include model numbers of preferred and avoidable machines, and why. Please don't just say "I didn't like it" or "had trouble with it", please explain what problems you had and why. Please also list what you liked about them and why. Thanks. I hope this can be a collection of what is good and bad about hedgers such that people can make informed decisions about their specific equipment needs. PS, Is Tanaka 2-stroke oil a good choice. It seems hard to find Mobil 1. I've also heard mineral based oil resists rusting longer than synthetics. Is the Tanaka blend a good choice for long no-use periods? Thanks again.
