I always liked Weedeater brand. How could you go wrong with a name like that?

I have a 20 year old Homelite that has worked well. It has a handle that extends back up behind my forearm like an aluminum crutch does. Allows the weight of the head to be supported better instead of it being totally on the wrist. You might want to check out some of the cordless models as well. That way you can eliminate the tripping hazard of the extension cord. At 89 years of age, he doesn't need a fall in the yard.

He had a cordless, B&D, but it was to heavy, he just wants a lightweight corded.

I just checked a bunch of websites and I don't see anyone making a weedtrimmer with the arm brace like the one I have. That's a shame, because it works well, and eases the load on the wrist.
