Some new orange and some old

I bought a DR power trimmer last year on discount but only got a few minutes to actually use it before the cold weather struck.

I bought it to use on the 300 which will be a nice combo with its low range and hand clutch. But the 300 is getting it's eagle hitch arms
repaired so I decided to try it out with the VAC. First gear in the VAC can be a little fast but I stay at about 1/2-3/4 throttle and it
does alright. I replaced the pneumatic dolly wheel with a solid Woods mower wheel that I had on a shelf so there will be no low or flat
tires for it.

Hopefully tomorrow I can post some video of it in action. I currently have some of the lighter duty twine in it but I intend to get some of
the bigger twine in the future.

How do you think that trimmer would work under electric fence lines? Don

Probably depends what kind of posts you have - plastic or fiberglass...probably not too well. T-posts or wood posts...OK

It was designed to mow fence line so you could easily mow around posts. If the electric fence was higher than the mower I think it would do good.

If you get out this way sometime you can try it for yourself if you like.

Kevin, I ordered a reconditioned unit last fall during their fall sale. It was around $800-900. If you prefer brand new you will pay more.
There is also a non-name brand equivalent that you can find on the internet for a little cheaper but I decided to go name brand.

I am attaching a link to the website for a reconditioned unit.
