I will say that I love love love my genisis one. It is well made, top of the line. I also recently got a cutterpillar trimmer which is very similar to the genisis in design but I would say it is cheaper made (plastic vs the gensis one that is heavy duty) BUT....it cuts nicely and pretty similar in design. And it has an edgelight. The genisis isn't in the budge for everyone, the cutterpillar is pretty nice for the money.
I am addicted to cutters as well so I am thrilled to find two that I love!!! I would not take the genisis to crops, to heavy but the cutterpillar will be going with me!!!
