    It will. Once you use it a few times... you'll never be able to use a conventional length trimmer again.

    How does the 71" compare with a regular length trimmer?

    With the throttle handle moved about 3 inches from the engine, the balance point is awesome.

    Extra length= extra reach... A real backsaver on hillsides... and great for daily trimming. I wish she had a 27 cc on her, though!

    The video said "14" longer than conventional trimmers." The length is 71" on this one. My Stihl FS85 is 59", so 71" is 12" longer. Apparently, some trimmers are 57" long, not 59".

    BTW, the woman was preparing to use the trimmer without eye protection. This is not good for a promotional video.
