I've had a little petrol dribbling out of the tank when in use - I think maybe I lost a washer or something that helps with the tank seal at some point, but I've avoided this problem by only filling the tank half full.
I bought a McCulloch Tivoli 63 Petrol Hedge Cutter 14 years ago, and it's worked very well for me. You have to get the hang of using some choke initially, and then running without choke, but that's normal for any small petrol engine like device like this; I've never failed to get it to start. The machine has cut through hedges, twigs, small branches, weeds and everything I've used it for. The reach is of course limited if you've got very tall hedges, and because of the weight of the machine, I wouldn't want to be up a ladder with it. You get plenty of cutting out of a tiny amount of fuel. Overall, a tremendous garden workhorse.
