palmerston north GB mature diy enthusiast
reasonably lightweight and the controls seemed well placed
After having used the machine twice ,I am planning to return it to the store, The trigger on the rear of the machine needs an excessive amount of pressure to operate and my hand cramped a number of times, hopefully it is faulty as I could not use it for prolonged periods. The plastic blade protector is also fiddly to slide on after use.

Bantry GB big garden small budget
Very easy for a woman to lift and operate. Low vibration compared to other makes I have used.
The protective blade cover is a little too snug and it is a fight to get it back on after using the machine.
