    I wish there was such a thing as a trimmer velkie, I am getting to the time of the year when I am sick of string trimming. The walking is really taking a toll on me & tiring me out. Any one else feel this way?

    Nope, I have a helper for that. :D

    As good as this year has been due to rain, I hope it never ends.

    Same here, He's just getting the hang of things, only took him 7 months. I've got him to the point that he can just about read my mind and go back over an area I think might need a touch up.
    With him on the edger/trimmer and me on the Z it looks like we spent all day on the property. Done in 30 minutes.

    I feel the same way, the trimming is the shortest time on the job, but it is wearing me down, with this heat and humidity. :(

    Nope, he quit me on 4 hours notice right before the 4th of July. This new guy has taken me from then until recently to get him trained. He's what they call us in boot camp a "rock". But he's finally got pretty good and fast.
