Straight Shaft Trimmer That Spins Clockwise?!?!

Do any of y’all know of a high end straight shaft trimmer that spins clockwise?

I currently have a 14yr old Troy-Bilt or maybe it’s a Homelite trimmer that’s on its last leg. I’m wanting to replace it and can’t seam to find a higher end brand that offers one that spins clockwise like my current trimmer spins.

I was going to go buy a RedMax but decided to try my neighbors first and it spinning CCW made it very weird to use.

Thanks.

Strait shafts spin the op
Opposite way to the engine because the bevelle gear reverses the direction
Bent shafts spin the same way as the engine.

After the first couple of hours you will get used to it.

You can run these electrics either direction.
