    I am 6'5" and using the weedeater for more than about 45 mins starts hurting my back from bending to trim. Is there a long shaft trimmer available, if not, what do you other tall guys do to support your back?

    i'm also 6'5, i use shidaiwa trimmers. pretty long shaft. i think though that anyone using a weedeater for a hour or more will have some aches and pains.

    My Echo's were too short, the Stihls are much better IMO. (I'm 6'4")

    A local dealer in Knoxville has quoted me 429.00 and the brush blade adapter is somewhere in the 45.00 range.
