What are people using for their hedge jobs? I've been using a Makita PTR2500, a Makita RBC2510 or a Tanaka TBC2211. None of these machines are my own, however, and I need to buy one. Trouble is, all of these machines are 8+ years old and I cannot find them for love nor money anywhere. ALL modern replacements are significantly underpowered by comparison, adding almost half as much time again onto my jobs. I've tried Stihl, Husqvarna, Makita and Tanaka and the engines wouldn't take the skin off a rice pudding - something to do with new emissions regulations I suspect.
I need to know what machines commercial people are using as the internet just keep suggesting machines suitable for one-off cuts in your back yard.
All help/suggestions appreciated! If you know where I could find one of the machines I've listed above, I'd be over the moon!
