SST25 Throws Objects

Featherlite SST25

From: Jackie P.

My old Featherlite plus broke so my husband bought me this SST25 model yesterday and the first time I used it, things from the ground were flying and it was a very dangerous item to use. I was cut and jabbed with flying objects. I loved my old unit and don’t understand why this one is so dangerous. My old unit had only 1 string and this one has 2. Is that why? I do all of the yard work at my house and I am really afraid of this unit and want to take it back. Do you have any comments or suggestions?

Hi Jackie,
If you set the string right, the trimmer should work fine. It should not throw objects for any reason; check the speed setting before returning it back. Also check to see if a less powerful model is available.
