I could see using that when climbing up on a ladder with it or between shrubs and a building...that you don't have to shut it off. I'll throw the brake on my chainsaws sometimes when I'm clambering around with them running.
That's what I was getting at...

A little less displacement than the HS45. Ball bearing gearbox.

I think I paid $250 from my local kawasaki dealer.
I am with this guy, you really should try the Kawasaki KHT600D nice little trimmer. I don't think you will be disappointed.
