Why no strap??? I just bought a 12" Ego weedeater and it came with no strap. I am a senior, and the strain of weedeating wears on me after 15-20 minutes... without a shoulder strap. Why in the WORLD doesn't Ego include a shouder strap? I know that you actually have them, but they are available only in the U.S. and will not ship to Canada...??? W.T.F??? I will mention this very weak and unreasonable policy to any of my cohorts that are considering purchasing such an otherwise wondertful product

Probably because it's an unnecessary expense to include an accessory that not everyone wants or needs, especially with a weed trimmer as light as the ones Ego makes.

If you need a strap you don't need to buy one that's Ego-branded. It's just a strap. Any of the generic straps that are readily available will work.

Here's one available from Amazon.ca: https://www.amazon.ca/UTS-1-Universal-String-Trimmer-Strap/dp/B000BQ7W86/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?ie=UTF8&am...
