It has a 20 inch cutter bar. They make a longer one, but I found it awkward and it wouldn't be terribly useful to me, since I already have the long reach hedge cutter that uses the same battery. The long reach pole saw also uses the same battery.
I generally use the handheld for work within 8 feet of the ground.
The guard teeth have a rounded portion , that prevents material from being spit out, rather than cut. This helps the machine to do a very clean cut.
I almost always use this machine in conjunction with the long reach saw and hedge cutter.
I have the 65 great tool really pushed it after 18 months motor broke was replaced no quibble no question . Then last week got a letter because of a potential fault offered me replacement new model weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee should arrive next week its the one you have Dale

For the many not for the few
Are they giving you a brand new unit after 18 months or changing a few parts on the old one?
Done. This one looks like Noah's Ark. There were a few animals living in it. It was about 26 feet high when I started. The finished height is a maximum of 21 feet. What a pain. It's on a large property and there is no negative view beyond the hedge. It could be maintained for one third as much, if it was kept below 14 feet.
The charger and Battery together were $350, slightly more than and the price of this unit. I called the other day to see the boat another battery. One guy told me a price. Then another guy said to not buy it now, since they are coming out with a newer battery with more storage, at the same price.
This is my primary tool for removing Himalaya blackberries and other dense ground cover. I slice through them every 4 to 6 inches and leave them on the ground as a mulch. This exposes the root balls. It would be easy to access them with a mattock, for complete removal.
