All right, i have to ask. Why would anyone buy a curved shaft trimmer?
I have no clue. I have always used straight-shaft, and I don't think I will ever go with curved, unless it is a really good product.
For general trimming i would rather use a curved shaft, but to edge sidewalks and heavy trimming straight all the way.
I tried a curved shaft once,I kept trimming the end of my boots.Curved shafts were obviously intended for Snow Whites helpers.
There was a thread on this recently. It's like discussing the abortion issue. Very polarizing.
This topic came up last year and I seem to remember someone saying a curved shaft was more useful for trimming around headstones in a cemetary...especially low ones.
I HAD about 3 before but, I sold them All I'd rather have one good one then hve CRAPPY curved shaft!
I guess it is all in what you are comfortable using. I used a curved shaft when I worked for someone else and learned to use it but never really liked it. I only own straight shafts now and would never go back.
I agree as well that straight shafts seem to be more ergonomic.
Buy one used and money problem is solved.
