How old is a Skil Hedge Trimmer Model # 66?
How old is a Skil Hedge Trimmer Model # 66? The best I could find was, "Vintage 1950's Skil All-Metal 12'' Hedge Shrub Trimmer". It's on its 2nd life with me, after it was given to me about 20 years ago. It's listed at the following address. Twice I thought the electrical wiring had failed (knowing I saw a spark but no breaker was trips or total power loss). I totally disassembled the (Good Working/Cutting) trimmer and found no problems. I found I had damaged the extension and repaired it. I also learned that the gas trimmers are the way to go if you have real trimming jobs. The Son-In-Law's at least 36" Sthil Gas Trimmer was a very quick/easy/safer job. loger
