what do you guys think about this? if it works, it'll be the greatest thing since riding mowers.
Did you invent it ?
well ,sort of... ive had the idea in my head for years,but i did a search and found a couple of them. someone beat me to it. i forgot to give the web site- http://www.greenindustry.com/ope/2001/0112/0112ma.asp ... gees i hate these stupid addresses. i wish i knew how to send a link.
You gonna get one ?
i'm gonna get two!! i developed tendonitis in my elbows from years of weedeating,ive cured that, but i dont want it coming back. besides this way i can sit on my a$$ all summer. hehe!
I will be looking forward to your post on how they do . I am going to check out the link so I dont have to ask all the how does it questions.
Link to Peco.
I know this is not related but could you tell me what you did about the tendanitus?
There is another mower trimmer similar to the one from Peco. It's made by a company called 4M Inc. There are differences between the two trimmers and they are substantial.
4M $679 (commercial model)
Peco: The trimming head doesn't move in and out
4M : The trimming head swivels in and out and is controlled by a foot pedal
Peco: The trimming head uses a fixed length trimming line that must be replaced when it gets too short
4M : The trimming head uses a bump feed trimming head, you advance the line by bumping a rod on top of the trimmer
Peco: Very low unit making it easy to get underneath of fences, small ornamental trees and the like
4M : This unit is pretty high because of the bump feed rod
Peco: Unit folds up towards the operator when not in use
4M : Unit folds back towards the rear tire for storage
Both units are electrically powered
Both unit's trimmer heads articulate so you can edge with them
Both units are height adjustable
Peco: The trimming head can be replaced with any standard trimming head
4M : The trimming head is proprietary to 4M and replacements must be bought from them.
In case you're wondering, yes, I have checked both of them out in detail but I have never actually seen either one. 4M is a company that is new to me and the Peco unit is brand new and may not be available at your local dealer yet.
here's the one from 4M....http://home.earthlink.net/~fourminc/
