    Might be a good idea, but I spray roundup along cl fences, don't use any line at all, and I know how to wind a spool on my trimmer!

    I have been running the PivoTrim for two years now. It makes the trimmer line last a lot longer and does a great job.It does what the video says. You guys will be impressed if you try it.

    I will be looking for the new one.

    How many times do you have to add string throughout the day?

    I see from your screen name that you are a do it yourselfer, but professionals can't get away with that. We would lose alot of clients if they all of a sudden had dead grass around all of their CL fences!

    Oh, how it would be nice though, If I had a chain link fence (I would never install one now that I know what a hassle they are) I would probrably do that to my own.

    It is a good idea but I dont think it is for everyone, me personally it would be no good because I trim along alot of block walls and lose my line to it being ground away not from breakage. Correct me if I am wrong though.

    Or you can charge a boatload of money to trim around it like I do. Every Tuesday I do a 7 acre property that is completely fenced in and we trim around the whole thing every week. Takes 1hr and 15min and I make a mint on that time because that is how the customer wants it.

    I've got one account where the customer also pays extra to trim around the cl fence - it's not that big though!

    It's also the normal thing to do here. I have one customer that requested it and with me being from MD where no one ever did that I refused and told them I'd rather trim it. I came back the next week and the grass was already brown around the whole perimeter of the fence. Hey, I don't care and it made the job much easier to do.
