Shaft Shaft The shaft transfers power from the engine or motor to the lines that do the cutting. Models with straight shafts offer longer reach, while those with curved shafts tend to be lighter and easier to handle.
Straight
Four-cycle engine Four-cycle engine Uses straight gasoline and doesn't require an oil/gasoline mixture, as do the two-cycle engines found in most trimmers.
