Is there anything to control trimmer height?
Someone told me theres a wheel kit you can buy?
Hold the head up a little higher, on that note maybe re-positioning the handle(s).
Haha thats what i said but one of our customers swares theres a kit you can buy but I've never heard of such a thing.
Sure there is....
The Trimmer Trolley -> http://www.trimmertrolley.com/
The best way to control trimmer height is with practice.
Depth perception, common sence, and practice... The bump head dosn't need to be riding on the ground to trim. Drives me nuts seeing the grass under low trees being scalped down to 1" or less.
I just showed the Trolley to one of my guys and he called it "training wheels for trimmers".
practice practice practice!!!!!!!!!!!!
You can adjust the handle so the trimmer is more confortable to use.
- i agree on getting into handle adjustment
- do curls to build arm strength
- the biggest pronlem is trimming to low ,
thusly by design trim a bit higher even if
it leaves some strands . then if customer
complains say i can trim lower but it could
end ip burning / killing grass . longer / strandy grass
looks better than too low / burnt grass
- someone needs to come out with a deeper headed
trimmer , instead of normal 3 / 4 inch a 5 / 6 inch ,
so the string is up higher from ground
- lighter whipper allows greater control ,
heavier whippers gonna be hatder to hold up off ground
