I havent really had a use for one just yet. I guess it would speed things up for when I have to get the grass of side walks. I dont really need it for leaves I just bag them with the lawn mower.

Congrats on the truck. I have a '91 SR5 and I love it. If you still haven't gotten a trimmer yet, get a commercial grade. I started out with a weed eater and it was heavy and did not cut very well. I've been using a RedMax for a while now and it's the best trimmer I've ever used. I've also used various echo trimmers as well but I like the RedMax a lot better.

RedMax Rules

I'm 17 and I run two RedMax trimmers, Bcz2600 & Bcz2400. I use 'em for everything from small lawn to 6ft. high brush with a Blade on it. They never let me down

I paid $250 for the 2400 & about $330 for the 2600 at Imperial Services in Billerica MA.

Good equipment is an investment that will make you money. Bad equipment will cost you in the long run. Save up and get the best you can.
