Back in the mid 1990's we spent $900 on a DR Trimmer w/the electric start. WHAT A WASTE! The electric start (which as a woman, I needed) worked a few times & then I'd have to have my husband or a neighbor start it before I could use it. And it was HEAVY so pushing it (on 34 acres of fenced pastures & house) would wear you out. DR Trimmer deserves to go broke for this stupid product.
