Great Trimmer
5 days after ordering was notified trimmer was back ordered. When shipped, can earlier then expected date. Arrived in good condition, read instructions, followed other reviewer suggestion and installed handle at back, great idea.

Added gas and oil and on 2nd pull started right up. Runs great and cuts great. Needed to get used to counter clockwise cutting. Would buy again. Recommend a shoulder strap, does not come with one.
