    My new FS85 is working great, but is it just me or is it really heavy after awhile of use, my arms are gonna fall off, will taking the guard off help with the weight???

    Also, it gets me so messy, my arms Especially the left arm will be covered with clipping and debris!

    Can somebody give me a suggestion on this?

    Did I waste my money on this trimmer? (300.00?)

    My biggest complaint with the FS85, other than the lack of power, is not so much the weight, but the fact that it was terribly unbalanced. A lot of people like them, maybe you could sell it to one of them.
