Dont you think trimmer makers should make a trimmer lenght extender? I was thinking of something that you could just take of the gearbox, bolt on a 1 foot piece of shaft and then put the gearbox back on. Of course it would have to come with a extra foot of drive shaft that would hook up or a longer shaft all together. I use a redmax 2601 and its not horrible to use ( im 6' 1") but it would be nice if it were longer. I know tanaka makes a long shaft trimmer but I think this would be even better b/c it could be taken off or put on depending on the operator. I dont think it would be too expensive for a major manufacturer to make and sell. What do you all think?
