I used to run a toro pro then echo and then it was like nobody could touch stihl. Then i got a kaw. and now ill never look back. lighter better tone and it will cut down anything in a blink of an eye. It will also sit on the bed rail of my pick up running. and not fall off. I would tell anybody to buy a kaw, I believe that they are the best.

Personally, there's little use for a curved shaft.

I still keep one because it's super narrow and short. Allows me to trim in very tight spaces like between fencing and hedge rows to remove all the crap that grows over time. It's also way underpowered, useful when trimming around newly planted dwarf junipers. I straightened the shaft a bit so it fits tall operators better.

That's it. For anything else straight shaft is king.
