Looking for a trimmer for tall people. Basically something that has a shaft longer than average or one that is adjustable?

Im 6.1 and use stihl trimmers. After about 45 min I notice my lower back is pretty sore.

Thank you

in case youve not tried this adjusting the position of handle on the shaft helps

The Tanaka model hasn't been removed from their website, so I believe they're still around, providing that they actually update their website. But it's got a 71" shaft so I'd go for it. I wish they made more long models like these.

You just need to hold it more vertical, I'm taller than you are and I can trim with the powerhead level with my ear.

You can try this but, it will be very heavy. Stihl Combi with the extension, with the, string trimmer. It's going to add weight and around18 inch's. I know I would not want to use it all day.
