I completely agree with this!!!
yep something to tell your insurance company when you put out the eye of the little girl getting off the school bus... if you even have it.
that makes no sense. the guards on an echo are what 5 inches across, if i am weedeating the guard is directlly towards me so everything else is open, if i am edging with it its straight up, so i guess the sun wont get hit with something. o brother.
I like the guard size on Stihl FS80-90 trimmers. Large enough it works, small enough you still see what you're trimming. By no means would I consider myself a slow trimmer....quite the opposite. Coarse I also edge with trimmers, so nice to have that guard in place.
Now perhaps I can understand removing large monstrous guards that cover more than 40% of the line that resemble a half a Frisbee. I also find those dinky Echo guards to be worthless, however, most Echo products are to begin with.
I leave them on.....after all, they're on there for a reason.
It's no guard for me.
I gotta ask how much do you break that you average 15k at a single shop every year?
I leave mine on.
Im surprised no one has mentioned the Edge - It yet. I have an edge - it on my current echo. I love them. They also can be used as a blower if you need to blow a sidewalk off right quick. I will be getting more in the future.
I keep the guard on and now I wear eye protection... almost lost an eye. The eye protection doesn't look great, but they do work.
It shouldn't matter if you have the guard on or off,Safety glasses should be worn all the time with trimmers.
