    You use the "trimmer" on your grass I thought it was for bushes ;-) The correct name should be "grass trimmer."

    Yeah I can't stand weed eater sounds like you eat weeds.

    Mr. ashgrove may I be as bold to suggest you brush up on your knowledge of landscape equipment use and history, their are reasons some call this tool a weedeater. They were the first, so We must start with George Ballas the man widely credited with this invention and end with the current company poulan who bought Ballas's company and currently makes the "Weedeater" and has manufactured the most line trimmers on this planet who's sister company is Husqvarna that includes the "Weedeater" brand. "weedeater" is far from the best but they are the "first" they are a brand they started it so get over it.

    Line trimmer for general purpose
    Brush cutter is 40cc plus and use's a the handle bar and full harness.

    The rotary cutter on the back of a tractor is, a "slasher", not a Bush hog.

    "Yes darlin, bin out in da fields bush hoggin. Just gotta whipper snip n weed eat the rest tomorrow."

    "Yes darling, have been out in the paddock, slashing. Just have to trim and brush cut the rest tomorrow!"

    soda = coke
    circular saw = skill saw
    trimmer = weedeater
