    A weedwhip is a grass trimmer. Some parts of the country use this term.

    I at first thought that the Makita trimmer might be a Honda or at least have a Honda engine. It does not appear to have anything Honda on it. It certainly is light enough at 11.8 pounds vs. Honda's almost 14 pound trimmer. The engine sizes are different also. I say buy one and come back and tell us what it's like.
