I took a picture of you today snyder!!
Bahahaha who the heck does that guy think he is? A fireman at 911?
There is NO EXCUSE for a trimmer strap unless you have only 1 arm.
Dude got gloves on as well. Where is his safety helmet ha ha.
How come LCO never have any employees that actually know how to use a weedeater?
I agree 100%. I use a Damn stihl fs-250 all day without a strap. Heaven forbid build up some muscle lmao.

WTH, that's a stick edger....it's got a wheel on it...so what the hell is the strap for if the ground is already supporting it? And it doesn't look like there's any fuel in it either and there's a woman, a little kid and a dog right there...guess none of them can read the warning on his back, lol.
I think those warnings come on all the straps now. It's the manufacturers covering their tails...the result of some lawsuit I'm sure.
If you're using a string trimmer for an extended period, a strap really can reduce fatigue. And again, if you're using a bike handlebar-type trimmer you pretty much have to use a strap or harness.
lol, Yes, I'm sure the dog can not read the warning or just doesn't care.
You know, not all of us are in our 20s and in perfect health. Some of us have medical problems or disabilities that require us to use certain aids or do things a certain way.
To say that anyone who uses a strap or a trimmer guard or whatever is an idiot or a wimp shows how naive and self centered some of you guys are. If someone wants to use a trimmer strap because they have tendonitis in their elbow or use a reach and grab tool to pick up stick rather than bend over or even use a freakin walker to get from their truck to their mower, you should be giving them credit for doing what it takes to get the job done, not poking fun. Grow up guys, worry about yourself and your employees and assume that if someone is doing something a certain way with a certain tool, there's probably a reason for it.
BTW - Any ideas on how to rig a wheel kid on my trimmer so I don't have to hold it up...I was thinking maybe a caster wheel from an office chair or something...I keep wearing out the bump knobs by resting it on them...or maybe i should just get one of these
I nothing wrong with my health
With a Strap on Bikehandles its the balance of the trimmer. The head of the trimmer never rides on the ground. I have it set where you don't hold it down,hold it up and pitch stays the same You can trim same height as you mow
Over years people I hired lot has been College kids and lot them has work for other people after they work for me they like the strap bike handle trimmers always say its more balances Walk upright never trim bent over. I see so many people trimming with handheld trimmers always bent over unless you are a short guy then your not
So don't kick it till you try it
This site a nice place to read and post but there a few act like first graders
