No. It is for comfort. I'm about 6' 1" tall and the handlebar enables me to get the trimmer head lower to the ground without having to bend over or bend my knees.

Without the handlebar, I would either have to be hunched over slightly or have my knees bent quite a bit whenever trimming in order to get the head at the correct height to cut…A Lot less fatigue…I highly recommend giving it a try even if you don't have the issues I have dealing with height.
