    Hello everyone

    I am new in this business and was wondering if i had already made a big mistake, on buying a new honda 4- stroke trimmer
    i have about 10 accounts and operate solo. but to get to the point when i am trimming an average size lawn my arms tend to get very tired. does any one else have this problem?

    Thanks, Frank

    i do but i am only 14 and have the biggest trimmer in the kawasaki production line
    you will get use to it and get stronger after you use it a lot and before long it won't bother you

    i don't know about the string trimmers for honda but i have a commercial honda and i love it

    Yes, just bought a brand new one along with 2 Commercial Honda Hydro mowers. I love them all. I use the neck/shoulder strap and that helps a lot.

    If it's bothering you now, regardless of the unit, get something lighter or hold it differently. In a few years you'll have muscle problems and be out of business..........been there done that.....
