    AGREED with you NLALM.. don't know how many times i used mine since jun last year. Been sharpen it 3 times already. I never used my SHindaiwa multi tool nor 2200DH anymore.

    That's what I thought, but I can see its advantages if you were doing really big hedges, but I can also see it being in the way on smaller stuff and slowing you down.

    Anyone one that wants to know about this gear will appreciate it, I think it covers just about everything.
    The other ones on the blower & tiny chainsaw were also great, although the blower looked too under powered ?

    The harness looks great & I have always been interested in both that one & its competitor, the easy lift.
    I can see where it would be a real advantage on bigger & unobstructed hedges but also looks like it could be an encumbrance it tighter spots.
    Have been waiting for a long time for someone to get a demo & do a review.

    I spoke to the owner of easy lift at the Melb garden show a couple of years back, his product also was quite impressive.
    You say the elephants trunk harness is imported to Dandenong ? Im only a few k's away from there so I'll have to look into it further.
    Really think even at $580 it would be worth it to me if it takes considerable strain off the bod.
    Would love to compare it to the easy lift though, construction,quality & price.

    Will send you a pm with a couple of other Q's.
    Thanx again. I, & hopefully others will have appreciated your input.

    Cheers Fred.

    I would consider buying the unit if it was equal to a bg56 in output.

    The 160t chainsaw looks like a nice fit between loppers + the 021.

    I've got the HLA85 and went to buy the HLA65 - When I was at the shop, I put a battery in to see what the weight/balance was like and noticed it was a fair bit noisier than the HLA85 ... I didn't buy it just in case it was faulty - Do you guys that have both find the HLA65 louder?
