Is there any way to increase the speed on the 12" string trimmer. Mine has been little used because of this. Doubtful I would buy another.

The 12" is a single speed unit, there's no practical way to increase its speed.

Modifying the guard to allow a greater string length may work (higher string tip speed), but you may create a safety issue. Proceed at your own risk! :-)
