    Hi mike!, the jx85 is a popular choice among the people here, try doing a search on it through lawnsite's search tool, It's a lot of reading!!

    is the jx 85 worth the extra money?

  7. Are you using it to trim or mow the lawn?

    i use it for trimming and also for some very small lawns my ztr and tractor will not fit on.
  9. Use a weed eater as much as possable on those, if it's to big for a trimmer, then use the push mower. The one you have should keep doing it, why buy a nother one?
