Bad design on ECHO PB-650h rant

Has anyone else had the pleasure to replace a trigger arm (C456000030) on a PB-650?
It is a simple plastic tube that is easy to break.
Yet for such a basic part it takes 1.5 hours to replace, even after you have done it before and know what you are doing. This is because you have to take apart the whole blower to access parts that hold it in place. There is absolutely no reason for this.
Shame on you ECHO

Never had to replace that part.......always duct tape it when it cracks. Wait until you have to put a front crank seal in the unit. That will make this look like a small job.
