Rated 5 out of 5 by Trail Clearing Used this trimmer at deer cabin for clearing trails and roads. Really works well on the smaller limbs, takes a little work on the bigger limbs form 3/4" and up, but I knew that before I bought it. Cleared about 100 yards of trails in about 30 minutes, I'm sure the trimmer could do more, I just couldn't keep up. October 7, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by My best Money Maker If I need to make some quick Money I drive down the road looking for the biggest mess of bushes or low branched trees or volunteer trees on fence lines. I pull this out got to there door and strike a deal. I can make $150 in an hour just cutting their mess. Takes no time at all. Cuts through Parasitic Vines on trees that grow all over them in as fast as you can brandish this unit. trims and cuts Crape myrtles New growths Fast and to the ground. I even misuse this and cut through ground brush and Mondo Grass/ Monky Grass and do clear cutting. It has even gone through copper Sprinkler lines so be careful there. Cuts through larger branches in the way to if held on them for a few seconds. Had some 18 foot monster hedges and this went through them in record time. 4 hours before with other trimmers 30 minutes with this.I love knocking Down Over Grown Rose Bushes with it. Cut them up then slice and dice them into small pieces to shove into a bag.I am a handy man and I put this tool to its MAXX Abilities at multiple sites a week. Its NEVER leaving my tool truck. I can make my Rent in a week using this. Just a wagon This tool and a box of trash bags and a rake. Can make $900 a week walking down the street. August 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wish I had purchased this years ago ! After so many years of struggling with a "residential" grade hedge trimmer, the HS 82R has made this chore so much easier and looks better. The rotating handle was a huge help in getting in a few tight spots too. Though this may be more expensive than what could be purchased at a Big Box store for a typical homeowner, I directly see the benefit of spending the extra money and having a MUCH better tool. Wow,...looks great, works great and got through the job much faster. There are so many Pro's to this unit. The only Con was that it was heavier than the residential grade hedge trimmer that I had used for years but this is not a deal breaker. My suggestions,...Buy it. You won't be sorry. August 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by You get what you pay for!! I used these for the first time on a large property that was extremely overgrown. Trimmed up touchy boxwoods cleanly. Cut right through large woody branches on burning bushes with ease, grasses, evergreens, everything. It ran much, much longer on a single tank of fuel than the 46 I've used professionally the last 6 years. I love this unit and can't wait to use it again. April 20, 2016
