Weight equals fatigue equals lost production and sloppy results.

I do a lot of pond trimming, wet areas you can't get a mower on, ditch banks,and so on. Its not uncommon for me to have a 1,000-3,000 sq ft area where I can't get a mower on. And yes I prefer to have the guard off. I don't run 2ft, but like 18ft to 20inches. Its a ton easier to do large areas while keeping it even as a reguar mower. Personally I don't care about trimmer weight to an extent.

I like it .I have RC Airplanes that are Electric and are more fun to fly as they more power full but the run time is less than a gas airplane.
