I have a 2400 and now a 2410 hedge trimmer. The 2400 really could not get thru a lot of my bushes, but the 2410 does much better. I know that the new power head attachment hedge trimmer has the larger tooth spacing and brushless motor like the 2410, but does it have similar or better power to get thru thicker branches? In other words, I don’t need a 2400 class pole attachment, that simply won’t work.. but if the new pole attachment is like the 2410 in cutting capability, that would be worth the purchase to me.

The powerhead attachment is rated to cut through branches up to an inch thick.

I have the powerhead trimmer but it hasn't warmed up enough here for me to get out and use it. But the powerhead has a 2,000-watt motor. Considering how much power thee bladed edger and power pole attachments have with the powerhear, I would imagine the hedge trimmer will be similarly impressive.

I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing. If the power in the other attachments is any indicator, the Powerhead hedge trimmer should be near unstoppable.

Just a little shy based on history- the first handheld hedge trimmer 2400 did not achieve its 3/4 inch rating so I pause before spending the money based solely on rating. From the picture it looks like the power head version does not have the first 3 teeth setup to allow closer contact with branches like the 2410 does- that feature was worthwhile the very first time I used it.

2400 = 3/4"
2410 = 1"
HTA2000 = 1"

I'm still waiting to get the new hedge trimmer model since the old one gave me quite a few problems.
