A handy back up for a trade gardener
After using STIHL trimmers for years, I decided to give this one a try so this review will be in comparison with the STIHL tools. Please note: This is just a first impression review so please do your own research! Good points are: It's lighter and very comfortable grip to use. It appears very fuel efficient, and the recoil is, as they say, quite innovative. It has a starting mechanism that pulls back itself after you pull it.
For large conifer hedges I would not trust cutting through thicker (1/2 inch) shoots
as the blades seem thinner in comparison. It's cuts cleanly into lush growth, and keeps well maintained hedges in good order.
Tick-over is satisfactory but the engine does get hot then can take a quite a few goes restarting up again. Not sure its this is a teething problem. The engine is a fraction quieter in comparison.
Overall, I'd probably recommend STIHL for heavier use, STANLEY more for domestic. Finally, I've tried to be as positive as possible about this classic tool brand and now after its first trial run I'm relatively happy with it so far.
