well i have a shindawa trimmer, i bought it used off another loco who had like 8, i bought it last month, i like that better then my stihl that i bought new this year. i figured its mostly because it doesnt have the trimmer guard... so anyway, today i took the trimmer guard off the stihl. has anyone had problems with this? also, i wear pants, i make my guys wear pants, and glasses too, so it shouldnt be a problem there. anyone had a problem with taking em off?
