    Hi, Please can you fill in my quick survey about hedge trimming. I am spending time researching into the best way of hedge cutting for longer. problems with heavy garden equipment Survey Thanks for your help, Wilson
  3. Hi, Has anyone used the easy lift harness or the stihl RTH harness for hedge cutting? Just wondering how effective they are, and if they are worth buying? cheers
  4. Thanks for your response colin, very helpful. I am currently completing a design and make project at university and want to come up with a solution to this problem of tiring when hedge cutting. I feel the two possible design solutions when be to create a back harness that would support the weight of the machine but still allow the user complete control of the machine and use it however they wish. Or a have the engine mounted on your back and have this connected to the trimming arm but still make the trimmer as light as possible (use aluminium or carbon fibre). do you feel these could be possible solutions? Thanks
  5. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone else has problems with using a long reach hedge trimmer for a long period of time. I find them very heavy and have to take regluar breaks. Does anyone have a solution for this? Are there any lightweight petrol trimmers or good back harness to use?
