I bought a Kawasaki trimmer last year. I love it! I swapped out a speedfeed head onto it and it made me love it even more. It has more than enough power to do regular trimming and super light weight. I even bought one of those flail bade brush cutter heads for it last year and cleared an overgrown bank behind one of my customer's houses. Worked great. I think I'm gonna buy another one this year so I'll have a backup. The only issues I had with it was when it was brand new, it bogged a little bit when you gave it throttle before it was fully warmed up. After a few weeks of use it stopped doing that. Probably just needed to be broken in.
