    I just purchased a Maruyama BCL2250 trimmer. What are your thoughts on this trimmer?
    Thanks!

    After a few hours it will get more power. Be careful, the top side of the carb is exposed and I have some crews that break the throttle valve all the time. Other than that they seem to be pretty good.

    What did you pay?

    I sometimes burn my arm on the clutch when I am trimming. Other trimmers that had a clutch I did not burn my arm on. Why is this?
