I recently bought the ST1500E-F trimmer and after a few uses, I came to the conclusion that the rotation speed is simply too low. That's especially a problem when trimming dense short grass blades, they tend to bend in contact with the line rather than getting properly cut.

Some reviews on the internet suggest that the PH1400E may spin faster than the standalone trimmers. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a clear indication of the RPM ranges of the two speed settings.

Can anybody help?

Excellent question! The ST1500E-F trimmer's no-load speed is 4000-5800 RPM. The PH1400E is 6000-7000 RPM.
