industrial weed whacker
we are looking for one of those weed whackers with the handle bars and the shoulder harness. if anyone has any info as to where we can buy one, it would be greatly appreciated.
Stihl, sold by Reliable Rentals on St Croix, is only slightly more expensive than the stateside dealer pricing. Check the internet for comparison. They've come way down since the son took over. I do a LOT of business there. FS 110 is beefy enough for most homeowners, FS 250 is the one the pros all swear by because it has a solid shaft.
check out Stihl dealers in the southeast:
and then call Reliable Rentals: 340.778.5738
Litostx, now that you mention it I remember reading that the Guinea grass (panicum maximum) which is the scourge of home owners is a delicious and valuable forage grass for livestock, whereas the hurricane grass (boithrocloa pertusa) which makes such beautiful lawns has almost no forage value for animals. Perhaps some sort of rent-a-goat scheme for clearing guinea grass might be worthwhile...
rks my mom in n.c. told me a girl there loaned out her goat. then others wanted to borrow her goat. she bought more goats, a truck and now rents them out. she makes good money doing it also. sounds like a great idea to me. as long as you have a place to keep them. she has the borrowers sign a contract that they will be responsible for them while in their care.
Had a friend who moved to Tennessee....in the country. His wife wanted to truly enjoy all aspects of living "on the farm". She adopted all manner of farm animals. One day the wife came home with a couple of goats.....to keep the grass down. He just had his SL refurbished / ground-up restoration. Picked it up. Parked it in the barn. Went to bed. Awoke the next morning, opened the barn door and the goat was standing on the roof of his prized car. The goat did not fare well in that situation.
