    Does anyone have any feedback on this trimmer? I got one and like I read in another post, the shaft seems too short. I love the power though.:D

    I have the FS85RT, FS80, and FS200R. I suspect that the shaft is the same length.
    As far as shaft length is concerned a manufacturer has to choose a length that fits people of varying heights. I am 5' 10", and the trimmer is just about right...maybe another 1-2" would make it perfect, but then I would complain about the extra weight.

    Its a trade-off. FYI- There are alot of short people (mexicans) in the lawn care business.
