Great string trimmer. Had an earlier model for over 10 years, used it on my property, plus helping on volunteer work. I changed out the bump- head feed with the single string no-brainer head.It lets you get closer to the ground.
After much research, I bought the Tanaka trimmer. My old Stihl needed repair and was becoming difficult for me to handle due to serious spine issues so I decided to find something new. I needed something light with enough power to handle large weeds and grass. This trimmer performed as advertised. I do have to stop and unwind grass occasionally, but I had the same problems with my old Stihl. I would recommend this trimmer to anyone!
