Is this to long for a 5' 5" woman to be able to use? Thanks for any suggestions!!!

Is this to long for a 5' 5" woman to be able to use? Thanks for any suggestions!!!
Asked by: Chris
It is NOT too long. You can adjust the handle where you put your non-dominant hand. So it basically adjusts to the user. I love this trimmer.

CW I believe. Opposite of commercial grade. I had to zoom in on a picture at Echo web site to arrow on safety guard. I seen a not about commercial grade rotating opposite direction due to torque convertor??

I am 5'3." Is the shaft length adjustable?

Asked by: WW
The shaft is not adjustable. The 225L (longer shaft probably would not work for you because of the angle at which you would have to hold it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont Waste Your Money on a Stihl! I mow commercially and my preference is for a long shaft curved trimmer. This unit is comparable to the old Shindaiwa's and RedMax's. The longer shaft my back loves. Unpacked it, gassed it up and 2nd pull was cutting. I replaced a Stihl FS46 with this unit and their is no comparison and will not tire you with the antivibration handle.

I find it to be a little bit lighter which makes it easier to use. The gas tank is a little smaller than the old one (one reason it is lighter no doubt), but big enough. Love the new head that can be rewound without removing the cover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My old trimmer was so old, replacement parts were no longer available. After much online research... My old trimmer was so old, replacement parts were no longer available. After much online research and trips to several local Echo dealers, I decided on the Echo curved shaft trimmer from "home depot.com." Be aware that there are two versions of this trimmer. The only difference between the two is the shaft length. My local Home Depot store only carries the shorter length model, while 'home depot.com" has the longer shaft model. I am tall and the longer shaft model was a better fit for me. This trimmer is far superior to my old one with two very obvious exceptions. First, the plastic string guard is too wide which prevents the operator from tilting the trimmer from side to side without scraping the ground. Although not recommended, I had to completely remove the guard to make the trimmer more versatile. Secondly, the handle cannot be tightened enough onto the shaft to keep it securely in place. Since the handle is made of plastic, you risk damage if tightened to much. Overall, this is a good product but be aware of the two design flaws that I have discussed above.

None of the models we were considering were in stock at surrounding Home Depot stores, so after exhaustive reading of reviews and tech specs for this model, we ordered it from the website. The problem? The tech spec for line feed is listed inaccurately as BUMP feed. In the owner's manual, which we could not read until the item was delivered indicated it is speed feed. A non-bump feed was a deal-breaker for us and something we specifically looked to avoid. We returned the item but could not explore a replacement in the store as, again, none in which we were interested were in stock. Please update the information on the webpage with the correct line feed option to avoid future returns.
