what do you think of this?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...376572870&rd=1

So, what do you think? Seems a little drastic and ridiculous to me. How in the hell do you actually trim with that? i don't think i am coordinated to use my feet AND hands to trim; i have trouble walking and chewing gum sometimes! i could maybe see blowing off with it.

Actually, you would develop the coordination--just as you now use the trimmer while your feet do the walking without you having to think about the movement of your feet.

But wait!!! There's more! Or there should be. While looking at the picture of this gadget it suddenly occurred to me there should be a blower nozzle near the rear of this thing to clear the clippings off the curb and back into the grass, on the same pass as the edging.

So why hasn't Jungle Jim thought of that?

And hey, if they do it, I want a royalty!

I used to laugh at this thing when I first saw it. I though why in the heII would anyone buy this? I'm not laughing anymore. There is a LCO down here who has a city contract that includes edging, trimming and blowing about 7 miles of sidewalks. With this thing he knocks the job out with one person in what would take a couple of people a day to do, he does it in 2 hours.

FYI: He already set the blower tube up at the rear with a RedMaxx 8000.

What may look funny to you may be the right tool for the application to someone else.

it kinda looks like a Dixie Chopper with something wrong with it, or a really mechanical looking wheelchair for a guy with no arms.
