    Just wondering if anyone can give me some feedback on this? Is it durable, nice trim, a total PITA, etc.

    Light weight (less than 9 lbs.) and it has great power. It has the rapid loader head standard, which can be changed back to a bump n feed head if you chose to do so. It is a curved shaft however, which I don't know if that is what you prefer. If you want the straight shaft you need to get the SRM-210. Both are great units for the price and have 5 Year warranties. If you want a little longer curved shaft with more power they make a GT-251 too.

    this is not intended for commercial use. Front nose cover is plastic. If you take the guard off and overheat the clutch, it will melt........
