Will the backend be too heavy? Note, I primarily use my trimmer for edging beds. I know there is another option, but I prefer string trimmers. Can this thing even be rotated into the correct position for edging?
Going on second season with my Power Head Edger/Trimmer w/5 amp battery. I'm 65 and not in the best of shape but I use the unit weekly. I can say it's heavier than the corded B&D dual line trimmer I used for over a decade. The EGO is heavy but manageable. It take me about 30 minutes to edge and trim my property. I have a pool so I have a fence that needs trimming on both sides so that adds about 10 minutes to the job. I have never used a gas trimmer so I can't compare the weight of the two, I wonder if there are any YouTube videos on the subject. I know Ego has a shoulder strap but don't know if it works on the P/H, that may help with the load. But man is the P/H powerful.
