    Is it just me or does this throttle trigger hurt your hand after using this trimmer for a while? I get the worst cramp in my hand and wrist after about 15 minutes. I'm hoping I'm not just a puss with carpletunnle. I probably spelled that wrong but judging by some of the posts I've seen you guys don't take off for spelling. ha

    Is it the shape of the trigger, the distance, the tension, or what?

    I dont own a redmax (shindawia) but maybe you can turn the throtthle to a diff angle. I turned mine to the right just a bit, so the angle of my wrist is more straight.
    My edger, the throttle is almost horizontal. Both are alot more comfortable at these angles.

    I have a Red Max BCZ2600S trimmer and the trigger doesn't hurt my hand at all.
