Bought one of these a few weeks ago when my old hedge trimmer died. I cut a very high and thick privet hedge and so needed a decent quality trimmer with a longish blade, mine is the 24 inch version. The Stihl is a joy to use. It cuts through quite thick stems and is well balanced. The fuel tank is a bit on the small side but I think that a larger one could spoil the balance of the machine. Starting is easy - just follow the instructions and away she goes. You really do get this impression that you are using a top quality machine. Other reviewers have rated this machine highly and contributed to my decision to buy one. I am pleased that I did. Expensive, yes, but you get what you pay for. Excellent machine.
