Comment:
First, as was already mentioned before it is a little heavy. Second the manual lacks important and basic details about the workings of the unit. An example would be how to remove the head of the stringer and re-stringing in general. The company I bought this from I Specifically asked if it was a trimmer that I could put replacement spools in and keep going and they said yes. My hands don't work that great so this was a feature I was looking for. Well he ordered the wrong part and you can buy replacement spools but it's the entire head of the trimmer to $10 plus shipping and the string doesn't last that long. It also doesn't have the holes that you usually put the string in when re-loading so it's a little more difficult to re-string.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
