I think this is quite a good price for a petrol long reach hedge trimmer. I ordered for collection from a mitox distributer (saves on postage ) and picked it up today. The dealer filled it with fuel and told me it was ready to go which was an unexpected bonus! ! I've not tried it yet but the build quality seems good and there is some weight to the components. The head rotates a fair way but not fully - getting it into the car was not a problem however as there is a way to release the head from the shaft section, similar to the multi function strimmers / tools.
