    Shindaiwa Speed Feed Trimmer Head.

    Saves me hours and hours by the end of the mowing season.

    I made a lifting attachment for my Scag. It works along with my floor jack. Simple but very effective. I can jack the mower on my concrete floor higher then I could by using the gate on the trailer. All just to swap out blades. :)

    one thing i have used and alot of people do here is if you have alot of "open" weed eating areas take the sheild off your trimmer so that you can have about 1 1/2 to 2 foot of line out vs 10 inches... but i wont do it because i only have maybe one cliend that the pros would outweigh the cons on... but if you have a spare trimmer and a few clients with lots of open trimming areas (such as a big ditch you cannot get a mower on) this would save some time but get ready to cuss at some rocks lol
