    I don't get it, you just provided the link to a video of someone using a Tanaka backpack brush cutter and you're wondering about backpack trimmers?

    It was to give a picture of what I am talking about. You can't buy anything like that here in the U.S.A. I would like a backpack trimmer. I think it would cut down on the weight alot. This would be good for some people that have wrist problems.

    You know that they have straps that you can put over your shoulder for a trimmer right? If you are looking to take some weight off..try one. I used to use one a long time ago when doing a cemetary. I would literally trim all day long. It was a lot more comfortable.
