Easy Lift. Does anyone use it?

Does any use or like the easy lift? I am thinking about getting one if I don't get a KM90R STIHL.

The product looks like it would work quite well if you do a lot of trimming which I do at times. My son does most of it now and he is also interested in it. It's tough to purchase something if you can't put your hands on it first or see it in action. Easy will be at a convention in Baltimore in a few weeks and I am hoping to get up there. If it saves having having sore back mussels after a days pruning, it would be well worth the money.

You can gon on Youtube and do a search and there are a few video demos/reviews of it that were not produced by the manufacturer.

I used my 8' trimmer today for four hours and by the time I put it down it felt like it weighed 100 lbs.

I have a ELH I use over here in the Uk. It is a great bit of kit it the right situation. I only use it on large open hedges with no overhanging trees which it can get caugth up in.

It takes the weight of the trimmer which makes trimming effortless.

Been using it today to trim tops of some privet hedges with my new 40" echo trimmer, supported the entire weight of the machine which meant I could cut the entire top from one side.

Id highly recommend it for using with a long reach trimmer love using it with my echo polesaw with hedge cutter attachment. Which kills my arms after a short while without the ELH

Off topic Kawasaki guy but I see you live in OC NJ. I used to fish for pickerel in the Egg Harbor river? Not good for eating but lots of fun to catch.
