I have a small mini cooper and need to transport a string trimmer 3 hours away.  Is the split shaft trimmer capable of being split repeatedly?

It just bolts together, so it's not a quick-release mechanism or anything like that. It's probably not a good idea to take it apart too many times because you risk damaging the cord running though it, but I don't see why it would be a problem taking it apart occasionally.

Probably not a good idea, I would have to take it apart 3 times each weekend I use it.

Did you buy it already?. If not look at the power head. It's pretty slick.

And the powerhead was made to be taken apart - nice call Jacob !
