What I really need isn't so much for hedges and shrubs as it is for cutting back perennials, so I want something more light-duty. I am really tired of bending over for hours, shearing and shearing. If I could stand and do the job, that would be even better. We have hundreds and hundreds of groundcover sedums that are down blooming and we spent time last weekend string trimming them, but it looks a mess. I'd rather shear them.
I have a long blade electric trimmer and a short bladed electric trimmer by Black and Decker that I have had for 10 years. It is a nice and light weight trimmer and easy to sharpen and maintain. Cannot cut big branches, but great for light trimming. I use a gas Stihl for bigger jobs, but it is heavy and after a while I feel it in my shoulders. The little electric trimmer I have can be used one handed, it is that light. But they now make small cordless models and even one on a pole that you could probably use like a wand and it too is cordless. Just Google Black and Decker hedger trimmers. I plan on eventually gettting the pole model trimmer in gas or electric.

Well, I can't have electric. I already have a B&D electric one, but with three acres and plants that need trrimming hundreds of feet away from an outlet, I need gas, or something with a good rechargeable system. My B&D rechargeable string trimmer charger stopped working. I hate that these things cost so much and never last more than a few years.
