Rated 5 out of 5Â by JimH Solid, Quality Trimmer
Purchased trimmer with extension accessory (sold separately). Extension adds on and off easily with allen-key and screwdriver. Handles nicely. Steel peg on opposite end of clipper serves as a helpful anchor when starting, protecting blade from engaging material.
1) When assembling throttle wire, depress orange throttle handle to provide necessary slack to thread wire.
2) When operating, be aware that the stop button is not spring loaded. Slide stop button back before attempting to restart.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Southriver Very smooth operation
Starts right up. Runs smooth, very easy to operate. Has shoulder strap that holds unit up resulting in effortless operation. Reaches tops of my high hedges without ladder. Very high quality not junk!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Watchman912 It has its faults
Not a bad trimmer but requires assembly and thats where you run into trouble, the included instruction assembly manual is a stapled black and white copy that's not very helpful in the assembly process, the shown diagrams are vague showing how to attach motor assembly to shaft assembly.

It supposed to be the top of the line echo trimmer, but it stopped working after 15 minutes. I could never started it again. Returned the item.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Jack It would not start again
I purchased the PAS version of this item: the power head plus the articulating trimmer attachment. The engine initially started for 5 minutes, and then died. It couldn't never be restarted. I had to bring back to the store and reorder. Because these higher end items are not sold in the store, they must be ordered online. Therefore, I had no idea how heavy this item is. The overall balance of this 59" shafted unit is not ideal for lengthy use.
