Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow so powerful Finally decided to stop going for the cheap hedge trimmers that break and have little cutting power and try the 82T 24in and wow i should have done it from the beginning. It has so much power and leaves a great smooth cut. I was trimming limbs an inch thick inside a large overgrown bush and didnt realize it till it sliced right through with ease. Easy start and seems to warm up and ready to go in a matter of seconds right out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and easy to use I’m not commercial but have 2 1/2 acres of plant material. My maintenance time is about 25% compared to manual methods and physical exertion about 25% less. The trimmer will last me a lifetime. It pays for itself in one season compared to hiring commercial landscapers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price I was debating on a battery power or gas. After talking to several people who said their battery is always dead when get ready to use their trimmer, the gas power was my choice. Its noisy but I live in the country, if I lived in the city I would consider a battery. I use it to trim grapes, fast and easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a "beast" for landscape professionals doing fine pruning I had to prune boxwood hedges last week so I tested the HS 82T model for the first time and I was extremely happy with my results. The R models really are for rougher pruning jobs. This machine is a "beast".
