This is ALWAYS a touchy subject around here.What is the advantage of having no guard?
AT this point you should be going the master trimmer route and having precut pieces in your toolbox. I keep several ready to go, i use a bit of electircal tape to keep them nice and neat in a round spool. Grab it, pre measured, pre cut, ready to load into the speed feed which is without any question on this planet the easiest and fastest loading trimmer head.on my husqvarna i just went back to the husqvarna head. it takes more time to pull the string off the spool and cut it than it does to wrap it around the spool and put it back on.
Cut it off? You know they can be removed right?Bought that new Echo had guard on with safety glasses. Still got grass in my eye. Got home an cut it off.
