Don`t buy Hecht products! I bought a 1299 Hecht grass trimmer and used it for a week until it broke down. en.hecht.cz/hecht-1299/I wanted to have it fixed on guarantee but the Hecht service refused. I took it apart and checked what happened. The metal part which holds the shaft snapped because it is too thin for such pressure exerted by the swirling shaft. See how thin it isSee how it brokeThe other side close to the engine is thickI had to ask my father in law to make a special ring for that broken part. It worked for a while but the machine broke down again, at the other end of the shaft. Don`t buy Hecht, Czech company which produces its stuff in China. Not only bad quality but also bad service by Hecht.
