Ben Carter replied to Daniel Edwards's discussion Getting rid of a Conifer/Hedge

"The only thing with the husky and the echo is that the trigger looks like it could catch on something and snap off.  I notice that the latest stihl long reach hedge cutters have the same sort of arrangment.  It may just be me be pedantic.  "
