McConnel hedge and verge cutters: Spend more to save money?

Those who know their McConnel Power Arms models will no doubt have a favoured pre-owned unit in mind. But for those seeking out a machine without really having a fixed idea of what to go for, a good starting point is to concentrate on the basics: the tractor to which the machine will be fitted; how much reach you need; what you expect to cut; and the amount of work to be done.
