    is there a cheapo <$100.00 gas engine string trimmer that uses a solid cable(motor to cutting head) as opposed to a braided cable ?weedeater, sears, etc etc ?

    I have several used straight shaft, solid drive shaft trimmers--acquired in various ways (all honest--:laugh:) for small dollars. Some require simple fixs--fuel line, primer bulbs, etc. I would now match these "broke in" trimmers up against most new trimmers.

    If you're not able to make your own repairs, used equip is risky!!!!!!
