I’d buy a small Echo. I did lawn maintenance for 24 years, either as a full time job or as a part time job. All our trimming gear was Echo. I consider it the Festool of such tools, without the steep price. The tree guys just attach them to their belt and whip it out faster than lightning. I never had a Echo product break…and when we bought new ones, it was just to get something new. They start the same way every time…they have a very even temperament…and they only get dirty if you cut roots with them. Keeping them clean isn’t a big deal…you wouldn’t think of letting your Festools stay dirty, would you?

Otherwise, using a corded saw plugged into an inverter in the truck is a real easy way to get the job done.
