Hedge cutters

Recommended Posts

I've been using the Stihl battery telescopic hedgecutter this week and the battery life on it it's really impressive. I think the battery would last as long as two or so fuel fill ups in a 2 stroke one. Far more pleasant to use too as you don't have to have a engine running all the time when you're up and down a ladder

I've been very happy with an echo 171 hedgetrimmer. No less powerful than my previous stihl and so far, much more reliable!
As regards blades, they all go dull with use but in general the professional grade machines have superior quality blades.
I would reccomend echo from my limited experience with them. Too early to comment on longevity.
