Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional grade These suckers cut just about anything. I trim a lot of old oleander bushes even low hanging branches on my oak tree. They will glide though anything up to 3/8 thick You have stay on bigger branches for a bit but they will go through it. I was cutting up to 3/4 inche branches without to much effort. I especially like the rotating handle. As all of my Stihl products the trimmers are well made and preform perfectly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This trimmer is PERFECT! Perfect for anyone! A homeowner or a professional landscaper. I use this thing almost every day as a lawn care business owner. Love the ability to cut through just about anything. VERY powerful! Will be buying another one! The long run time between fill-ups are a plus too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This hedge trimmer is nicely balanced and easy starting. I used this hedge trimmer for probably 6 hrs. Straight and did not feel cumbersome or unmanageable. It was nicely balanced and easy to start everytime, hot or cold. The twistable handle made the machine very comfortable in any position. It is probably the best trimmer I have used to date and would buy again if the need arouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome hedge trimmer! I bought this a couple weeks ago to cut back the overgrowing blackberries on my long driveway. This thing is awesome! It made quick work of a big job and did it without a single issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trail Clearing Used this trimmer at deer cabin for clearing trails and roads. Really works well on the smaller limbs, takes a little work on the bigger limbs form 3/4" and up, but I knew that before I bought it. Cleared about 100 yards of trails in about 30 minutes, I'm sure the trimmer could do more, I just couldn't keep up.
