    I remember reading a post back in december about time saving ideas( cannot remember who posted it though),One was about keeping 20ft. pieces of trimmer line "on" the trimmer at all times. It seems whenever I am really far from the truck and have like 2 ft left to trim,I run out of line! So I got to thinking about this,I cant remember how he said he kept the pieces on the trimmer though.My idea was to attach a 2" dia piece of PVC pipe about 6" long to the trimmer shaft using screw clamps and having a threaded cap on the pipe and roll up 3 or 4 -20ft pieces of line and stick them inside the pipe and pop the cap back on,problem solved,no more running out of line! This was the only method i could think of that would be light enough and not be much of a hassle.Anyone else have any other ideas on how to do this or any other little time saving ideas like this.thanks
