    It is my understanding that there was a lot of personal injury with these because they were often used on hillsides and people often slipped with feet going under them.

    I once read a story of someone suing the manufacturer when he was injured trying to cut a hedge with one - don't know how true that was.

    Bought one. Used it to cut a culvert. It sucks. Weed Whacker works just as good. Might take a little longer, but alot safer.

    Here is the link to FlyMow http://www.flymo.co.uk/node513.aspx?cid=307 I had one about 20 years ago. Used it to mow the banks of a 3 acre lake every week that was in front of our house. It worked great for what I used it for.

    Allen Mower makes a hover mower that uses string trimmer line for cutting. A lot of golf courses use them for cutting bunker edges and steep banks. That's bout the only place to use them. They might come in handy for mowing really wet areas where the mower tires would cause ruts.
