Don't know whats too laugh at, prices around here are so low that speed is everything. Since he didn't cut much off he could suck up the clipping with a leaf vac.

Everything about that is awful... Except for the trimmer itself!

It's really not that bad. It's been posted before

For how fast he's going it's decent. Throwing the clippings keep you from having to take them out of the bushes too

Haha, wow. I agree with firefighter, I have seen worse that took all day. Considering how fast we was going, he did pretty decent, but still... those people better have not paid much for that. Why not take a little more time, charge a little more money, and do some work you can be proud of? I mean 10 more minutes on the job, as good as he was at shaping that fast, and those things would have looked a million times better. And he wouldn't have looked like a maniac. There are a few jobs I could do nearly at that pace because of the types of shrubs, but there's no way I'm going to let people see me do that. I try to slow it down and smooth out the process. There's no telling how many "across the street" jobs I have picked up from people watching me and liking my work. If I was working like that- no freaking way, they probably wouldn't want to get near enough to ask me in fear of loosing an appendage

Think its foolish and stupid to work like that....only took me 25 years, but my hand did slip on the handle....didn't feel a thing.....shows how well I sharpen my blade.

Really no excuse to work the way he was doing. Could work fast, not crazy because there was no control.

Is he still alive or does anyone know how many extremities he has cut off doing this yet lol.

Job looked like crap but for the speed he did it at looked ok, good way to end your career there what a idiot.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
