A little disappointed
on May 21, 2009
The attachment comes with shoulder strap and "better" handle.
It only takes seconds to swap out and back in.
The extra weight makes the unit vibrate significantly more, which quickly becomes tiresome.
It doesn't seem to be that effective - I was expecting thick brush to be "vaporized", but the blade seems a bit dull, and the amount of effort required was surprising.
As another review states - this item has limited use - weeds/shrubs around 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick, too thick for a trimmer but not thick enough to need a chainsaw/pruner attachment.
Also, seems to get tangled up easier than the trimmer, but that might just be my inexperience using it...
Overall then, not bad, just not quite the "obliterator" I was expecting.
As usual, Amazon's delivery exceeded my expectations and their prices really cannot be bettered,
