I never had a chance to use the tool. When it was shipped from home depot.com it was in poor condition. The box was torn and broken open. The tool was damaged and pieces laying loose in box. It has to be partially assembled. Echo tools are OK and we use a lot of the product line from Echo. They are making tools cheaper and cheaper-skimping on plastics etc.. This is common with all manufacturers. I took the tool back to a home depot store and they easily returned the item. I will reorder later but disappointed in this delivery. It may not have been home depot-maybe ups. I will say when I saw the box it made me think of Jim Carrey and the movie pet detective. This was when he dressed up as a package delivery person and was kicking and throwing a small box down the side walk. Hope future deliveries are better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rhandy1970 Powerful and balanced.
Great trimmer. Our yardman doubled his price on hedging services so I bit the bullet and decided to try it on my own. Figured between my sons and I we could handle the job. Tried an electric handheld trimmer and realized pretty quickly 200 feet of 8 foot hedge would take forever. Did a bit of research and decided upon the Echo. Never looked back. Its a wonderful beast of a machine. Powerful, tough and still balanced and user friendly. Its not easy to tackle 200 feet of hedge, its hard on the back and shoulders, and your arms feel like mush with the vibrations and odd angles of work, but its certainly easier with the echo. If your hedges are high, don't skimp, buy the one with the articulating blade,. Your back will thank you.

I use this to trim around a large pond where the tractor mower doesn't reach. It is excellent for this job, much faster than a string trimmer. Like all my Echo products it starts easy every time. It is powerful enough to handle grass weeds and brush.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by StanStanHandyMan The right tool for challenging projects
Have a large pie shaped yard with extensive plantings and many holly's and privets. Many are over 8 to 10 feet tall and tops could no longer be trimmed with my current Echo trimmer even on a ladder. This solves the problem. Although it can be a challenge to maneuver, after some practice it is just a matter of pacing yourself. This trimmer is easy to switch to different angles. It start very easily and I have had good luck with Echo for the past 20 years. This trimmer also enables more accurate and even cuts as you can sweep across hedges flat and then change the angle 80 to 90 degrees and get straight cuts across the front. A real pleasure to see the results, excellent product to keep my prized landscape in top shape.

Easy to put together and use. It's a ittle heavy after awhile ... but now I can trim and shape my own TALL bushes and trees throughout the season as needed. It will pay for itself in one season, what it usually cost to hire someone to come out once.

Very happy with my purchase the only thing to note is that the fixed trimmer is significantly heavier than the two piece ones
