I think the picture shows it all, It's a bent piece of metal that I bolted to the bench grinder, just bend a piece of metal to the angle you want and go from there. It works very well, and I also use it on the push mower blades that curve downward, they are a little tricky to get a perfect surface but still way better than using an angle grinder. On the flat blades it works perfect every time.

A pruning and mulch job from today. Everything was fairly overgrown and the garden was basically all lawn/weed before. I really need to start taking before pictures but I'm usually just too eager to start, lol.

Got some new marketing/advertising material.

2. Sticky note pads for leaving notes for customers
3. New business cards.
4. Letter openers that I will put magnets on the back, 250 of them for customers.

My cleomes, which started out as little sprouts, I have two of these pots at the side of my house. Also a pic of the front yard cut with the Turf Tracer.

Couple pictures from the other day, a couple funky hedges and a front garden clean-up. The 1st hedge is wavy I know, but it will never be straight, very neglected and leaning/crooked/broken/dead/everything else, lol, turned out decent, customer was thrilled.

Got a banner made along with all my other new marketing type stuff, just for my garage, but now I can call it a shop, lol. I need to secure the middle so it doesn't flop down like in the picture, but turned out nice.

I know what ya mean about the small gas tank on the hs 45... It goes through that tank in no time! It's a good trimmer tho. How does your new one do, does it have enough power?

It does great, I like it a lot, however it does have a little less power then the hs45, which is odd, but thats what the specs say on it, I have an older hs45 which still has the 24" blade, the new ones come with 18". If I were to only have one I would say get an hs45. The 81 is a lot more refined, it cuts the finer shrubs much nicer and is great to use for extended periods, the gas tank is probably triple the size of the 45, no vibrations, no lingering fumes from exhaust, well balanced, I could go on and on. But for thicker trimming the hs45 is still my go to, it can cut through thicker branches, in a perfect world I would have an hs81t and hs81r. Hope this info helps.
