So yesterday, I purchased a Husqvarna 128CD trimmer. It performs very well, but fatigues my upper body after 30min or so. I tend to raise the upper area of the trimmer to get a low-cut angle on the head so I can trim very close to the ground, almost to the dirt. That's just the way I like it. So it makes my forearm rest on the engine head and my right shoulder is at a constant strain.
I know the straight shafts are what the commercial guys use, but do you think this would help with the angle at all? I see the biggest advantage for the straight shaft is to get under shrubs and trees easier. Let's get the dirty posts out of the way while we're at it.
Forgot to mention I went to Lowe's during my lunch break to hold both trimmers, but still can't tell if one's better than the other without actually using it.
