    Yep just go blind swinging. Then look up after 3 hours and realize you got 20 more hours to go.

    You could do an acre in 3 hrs.

    What's more concerning, it the effect its going to have on your body. That's a lot of vibration traveling through your body. You will definitely feel it.

    No one on planet earth would even attempt to string trim 5 acres. That’s 217,800 sqft :laugh: You’d burn up at least 3 trimmers. :laugh: And still not be done.

    Using a 21 (insert your favorite brand here) it still would take you two days. And that’s with it being flat ground and no taller that 3.5 inches. ( A string trimmer)? It’s shear insanity......

    I'd price it to include the tendenitis and carpel tunnel you will get quickly. Those cortizone injections run around $150 with my doc.

    If you guys had to do 5 acres of steep embankments what tool/equipment would you use?
