YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

If you go to their website they say the production version has a cage (they call it a "shroud") and they do show pics of one with a cage.

The video they have posted (bad choice) is the same one posted up top.

I'd like to have him come cut some trails for me ... way ahead of me . It would look like a weed wacker at a salad bar !
