so some time back, i planned on going to battery for hedging before my arms got vibrated off.
bought an ego hedger skin on ebay, $100
Autumn; thought my echo 1500 got pinched out of the ute overnight
bought Ego pole hedger/saw and batteries the next day, sweet im equipped
hedger cuts fairly well, pole saw is pretty solid. pole hedger not bad.
The hedge gear seems slightly gutless but oh well
Late spring, A lady says you left your hedger here a while ago, oh, ok thanks. 5 months of unknown storage, the 2 stroke starts straight up, all good
The Ego hedger had always struggled a bit, didnt like diosmas, didnt like working hard. the other day really didnt like big tight buxus, kept stalling
Today, it just stopped. to be truthful its worked pretty hard, i think its just run its non commercial life.
So this afternoon, fired up the echo 2 stroke hedger, hell noisy thing, smoke in the face and it doesnt cut well, cant go back to that
So which battery gear to get, looked quickly at the husky, if i read right its 4.7 kgs (really?)
interested in the Stihl, they know how to make a hedger, and the battery can go on your belt instead in the tool.
Commercial hedger recomendations please?
