    Default stihl or shindaiwa

    Hi,

    I'm looking at getting a new hedgetrimmer but need a long reach due to the layout of the hedges.

    I've been looking at stihl and shindaiwa's combi systems (a combi system to save money and these makes as they appear to be the only one's with an articulated hedge trimmer head).

    They both look about the same and cost about the same but before i decide on the flip of a coin I wondered if anyone has any experience of either of these products and could give any recommendations/warnings on them??

    Cheers guys
    Nick

    Default Taqke your pick

    Both are good makes and experienced both in chainsaw form. Both of our's are late 70's models however the parts for the stihl are far easier to obtain but are more expensive. The Schindiawa willl bite the bullet eventually as parts aren't available. Have heard that Stihl might be trading on their good name and that the cheaper stuff is 'hobby' quality. Final tip is toss a coin because at the end of the day you will either a good or bad one in either make.
