    You cant trim with the back side of the head. (reaching around something like a small tree or pole)

    First thing I do with a new trimmer is remove the guard before I start it the first time.

    I remove all guards before we use them. More productive. I also take the screens out of the equipment.

    I will remove mine if it will actually make it more productive like taking it off in a ditch or someting but otherwise it stays on.
