I assume you've got to remove the guard from your whippy to fit this and for it to be effective? That would be my issue, ie insurance/work safe risk.

So you flick a stone into a kids eye and you have removed the guard from your whippy you'll be in a whole lot of strife. Irrespective of whether the guard would have made a difference.

First question asked is why are you using a trimmer with children in the area with or without a guard

So your advocating the removal of guards or just being argumentative?

the primary purpose of a guard is to protect the operator as he has to be there  you should only operate a trimmer or any ope for that matter when people are at a safe distance from the equipment so if you hit someone you are at fault guard or no guard, just if you have one fitted you may have a better argument but in the end you will probably still be found at fault

Most contractors don't use guards to protect themselves.Much easier working without the guard,you just wear safety glasses to protect the eyes or wear a face shield.

If any human comes within striking distance i just stop trimming as a duty of care

The only time i use a guard is when slashing with metal blade in case of kick back

Reply to an email i sent re Honda.

 

Hi Drew, the curved shaft Edge-It should fit a curved shaft Honda, though I've never seen one. We don't have a kit for the Honda, but we have had golf courses adapt our Stihl kit to the Honda by adding some spacers to the mounting bracket. Just what they told us.

thanks

Also regarding guards :) remembering  they are primarily there to protect the operator and as a sole operator you remove one for you own use and hurt yourself basically that's your bad,but if you let someone else employee,friend or anyone use one without a guard you could find yourself in a heap of do do if they get injured

I bought one of these about 8 months ago and absolutely love it. If I was fit enough I could probably run with it along the edges.
My only issue is I have it on a Echo PAS 265 multi tool with whipper sniper attachment and it's too heavy.
I'd like to look around for a lighter whipper sniper to put it on. Does great edges very quickly.

Not sure what you mean by wear. The disk actually rotates as you do the edges.
