    One more thing, I have never had that great of luck using the multi unit machines, like the multi unit handhelds with trimmer, edger, chainsaw, etc. I have found by the time you buy the unit and the time it takes to change the units, you might as well bought a job specific tool.

    Good point, the sidewinder is about 4800 bucks with the 2 types of blades and attachments, but it really cuts fast and is self propelled. It is built like a tank and will probably last 20 years. Here in the mountains, I have only seen a couple of people with Browns, and they dont seem to be able to use them too well because of the terrain. The plugr also would need to be hydro driven because of the terrain here. In a way tho, this is to my advantage, because these markets have not been developed very well due to the extra expense and energy of equipment needs. IE>>> Most people will not invest that kind of money, therefore, it doesnt get done much around here. OPEN MARKET FOR ME. thoughts?
