I am coming from a Stihl straight shaft that I 100% loved. I bought a ego straight shaft hoping to love equally as much. The ego is blowing debris ALL over me while cutting. The debris is hurting my face while cutting. Actually, I can't even keep my eyes open with safety glasses on. It's horrible and I am HATING myself for gifting my Stihl to my dad because his off brand weed eater broke. Possibly, it's because I am left handed. However, that seems rediculous.
