"I got the unit Friday afternoon.Even got to use it Saturday installing a couple of plants (with pics). The handle height is perfect for me at 5'10" tall. It started quickly and does a great job digging,even in the red clay. I like how the handles protect the engine during transport.
I like the S-Start.I've got a similar start on the echo, but the feel of the S-Start is better. Love the wrap around handles compared to the one wrap around on the echo.
I'll keep testing and write you a report when finished."
