"I've recently got the kma130. My km131r is getting very little use now.  I know it is the combi and not a dedicated long reach. Great reduction in weight noise and vibration. I last longer! Also there is no pulling of the starter cord when balanced…"

"Without knowing the age of the hedge and consequently how well its establised/thickness of the trunk + roots, how you're disposing of the waste, it's really impossible to give an idea of price."

"The curve and the materials are the least of the worries. The scale is the problem. When the path was originally done the edging was probably installed first and then infilled. Will be difficult to achieve such a tight job again. Easiest way is to g…"

Ben Carter replied to Dave F's discussion Good value strimmer
"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.  "

"I use Stihl, an FS90. I'm on my 2nd now after 10 years and that's only because the first one was stolen! As ben says, they are easy to service and grease, there's not a lot to go wrong with them and they have none of the problems the larger 4 mix ma…"
