I'm tempted to try taking it off, but I'm thinking this is not the best method for trimming while wearing shorts...

I figure "The German Engineers" (Stihl) know a bit more than me

I leave the guards on if they happen to get broken (which is rare) I replace them

Guards off & wearing shorts EVERY day it is over ~50 degrees.

Ran a Redmax (lower tier commercial ~24cc) for 8 years w/o the guard. Sold it to another LCO buddy 3-4 years ago...still on the original clutch.

What I'd like to know...
How many remove their guard and then decide to put it back on...AFTER seeing the light?!!
I'll bet there's a few stalwarts out there...and I'll scratch my head until my last breath. Unless you trim/edge with FULL/WOT RPMs...that dang guard is just a nuisance.
