    straight SOLID STEEL INNER SHAFT is a must if using it for commercial applications as far as a trimmer.
    I LOVE MY EXMARKS NO SHAME IN MY GAME

    I just started using the Kawi trimmer and we love the Wright Stander RH 36". The catcher my be a little heavy, but it fills all the way up!! Great cut too!!

    We use the stihl 4-mix blowers(br600), (110)trimmers, and (110)edger. We love'em all. Great power and have been very reliable.

    Read the threads :Blew up my Stihl BR600 - again! and Shindaiwa T270?

    Don't take my word, I am only a home owner and I don't even own a 4Mix. I am not qualified to make comments because I don't have the knowledge nor the experience.

    Do NOT get a curved shaft!

    You dont see many if any lawn compainies with them, for a reason.
