    Hi,
    The long trimmer has a 71" drive shaft. So, it is 71" from roughly where the shaft goes into the engine to where the gear box starts.

    Hi,
    You can call our Master Distributor, Gardner East, and let them know you are interested in a demo. Call Al Pacunas at (800) 521-6535.

    Also, it looks like the unit won't be available till the end of April. Sorry about the delay.

    And whoever boxed it up should be taken out and shot...LOL. I think they had a few pounds of staples in that box...

    If the unit came assembled in the crate, all of the staples were in there due to the trimmer's extra long shaft...they don't fit in regular boxes;so, two must be stapled together.
