    I want to get a regular weed wacker to trim with but want one that you can put the power broom, hedge trimmer, pole saw, metal blade, and plastic blades on. Which one is best? thanx

    i look at the attachments

    i don't know... the only ones i think i would uses would be the brushcutter and the pole saw....maybe the stick edger

    do you guys really use all the attachments... the blower? some look kinda gimmicky...

    let me know as someone just gave me a nice powerhead.

    I use the pole saw and articulated hedge trimmer attachment all the time and the cultivator attachment and power broom sure have there place as well....they have come in handy and make job time on landscaping jobs come down = more profit. I carry the edger and trimmer head attachments on my mowing rig as a back up for my primary edger and trimmer.....carry three handhelds instead of four. Shindaiwa does'nt carry/sell one of those cheesy blower attachments....:laugh:there a joke:laugh:......:waving:
