For those who like the Speed Feed head on Shindaiwa, Maruyama makes a similar speed feed which IMO is better designed and quicker to load. They also have a 5 year commercial warranty. Check'em out.
no offense but marayama suck! Gutless, and heavy. My dealer pushed them real hard and now they are all coming back. Seems the new ones are worse than the older. He is now Going to stop carrying their trimmers. I tried demoing one last summer and the thing just has no power.
