Has anybody trained themselves to hold their trimmer in the opposite hand?

    When you get into nasty hills you'll be learning the art of one handing the trimmer. Yes get to using both hands will save you someday. Read the 100 acre cem. thread. You ganna do that work all day with the same hand? How bad you want a carpet tunnel or arthritis.

    I do trim using both hands, and last couple years been doing it one handed sometimes, for the most part its just because I'm bored of the repetativeness.

    Me too, I liked to challenge myself! I am glad I did. I am strong as an ox.

    You may research all string trimmers for this. But, my ancient, '02 Echo spins clockwise, while my Kombi spins counter-clockwise. I have to walk in opposite directions, while using them.

    Hi Steve, We'll have to catch up this week so you can show me how you do the left handed trimming.

    It wouldn't surprise me if there is or was a brand trimmer that was as you were thinking. Wouldn't surprise me at all.
