Comment:
Got it rapidly (actually a day earlier than A....n predicted). Went to use it, Line cartridge didn't pop out like as it should have. NO INSTRUCTIONS on how to access the line. Finally got hold of the company on a WEEKDAY. Oh, we've changed the color of the line cartridge container, which one do you have? I have the black one. Then she explained how to fix it. I asked why the instructions are not in the paper work, I was told she would pass it on.<br /><br />WHY do they have a change in product and outdated information / instructions / how to use? Makes me completely distrust the manufacturer. They can't bother to have the right information for the product. Then have an M-F 8-5 EST telephone number only. What about those of us out West? I read reviews on multiple different ones at Consumer Reports and this garbage attitude seems to be a universal method.
How long have you owned it:

Very efficient but my forearms hurt
7/16/2015
Pros
Easy to Handle
Ergonomic Grip
Powerful
Cons
Fatigues Muscles
Best Uses
Trimming Around Rocks
Weeds &amp; Tall Grass
Comment:
This machine eats through weeds and brush without hesitation. I love its efficiency. The only problems I have are that something about the weight/balance creates a real strain on the muscles in my forearm, and that I am not sure how to insert new line without buying the pre-wound units.<br />But I guess it is cheaper than a gym membership.<br />Bottom line is that I would buy it again because it works so well.
