How Gypsum Works
Designed to Shindaiwa’s high standard of excellence, the patented Speed-Feed® 375 and 450 are the best bump-feed trimmer heads in the business.
The Shindaiwa Speed-Feed® trimmer heads can be reloaded without dismantling. Simply line-up the eyelets, thread the line through the trimmer head until it exits the opposite eyelet and pull a couple of arms lengths of line. The line is quickly and easily loaded on the spool by turning the large knob on top of the trimmer head. It’s just that simple! The average time to reload line is 30 seconds!
- Smooth and durable, the large bottom cover taps on ground to advance line and allows head to glide while trimming
- Line tensioning system with split spool reduces head vibration
- Large, durable eyelets enhance line life Inner wall reduces amount of dirt inside head
