    I was wondering if anyone knew where i could find like a universal front extended handle to go on my equip. ( edger, string trimmer) Im 6'3" and the handles that come stock arn't long enough so i have the run around bent over, after a while it starts to hurt . I have seen them before so I know they make them I just cant find them

    Any ideas

    Try moving the handle up on the shaft that helps some.(I'm 6'4" and it only helps)

    Get a handle from a Kawasaki trimmer and turn it sideways.

    At 5'-4" I've always wanted to cut a few inches off.

    Contact your local Red Max dealer tell them you want a J handle Im 6 3 " also it works great the handle will fit most straight shaft trimmers.
