Yes it trims very nice

At the end of the road are some 

4 foot or so high weeds that it 

went thru like a hot knife thru butter

Those engines don't like to run very well without an air filter and air box.They run a bit to lean at WOT without one.Noticed that on my old push mower when I took the filter off to blow it out.It's a 6.25hp ohv briggs.

Its funny that you say that. 

After i did the video i thought 

why is it running so rough 

for having a new carb on it. 

I put the filter back on it and it ran 

like a charm. 

I also figured out how to lower the 

cutting string. 

Used it on my backyard before i mowed 

and cut trim time way down.
