    I have the KM110 head and I have the articulating head hedge trimmer attachment. With the exception of the weight, I love the tool.

    I was talking to a customer, today (potential customer). I'm guessing he's gonna ask me to clear his pond edge. The tool will do it, just fine. But, it's gonna get REAL heavy.

    Just suck it up? Use a sling? If sling....where would I find one?

    They all should come with a sling from the store. Dealers sell the sling straps, as well as a few types of better harnesses.
    You can adjust the location of the sling swivel to get the balance just right for you, but that's going to be difficult with the hedge trimmer, because that is a very heavy attachment. You might want to hang an ankle weight in front of the motor.

    We use on every spring and fall for weeds and cattails on ponds.
