Looking at getting one, new house has hedges.
How thick can the branches be? 1/4 inch ok?
Prices for average brands such as Ryobi are around $180, any need to go better? I guess the motors will be similar, but it may come to how effective the cutting is, i.e. how well the blades are set and how well they stay set.
Any need to sharpen often, and is that easy?
