A weed eater/string trimmer for a tractor

Does anyone make one? After mowing I thought it would be nice if the mower was offset to get under the trees better so I wouldn't have to use the weed eater. I have a lot of acreage to mow. Be nice if a weed eater/string trimmer was made that I would ride around the tree line and clear out the weeds.

Years ago Weed-Eater brand had a 12 volt model that would hook up to your battery. It had a fender mount hanger bracket to hang it on while mowing and then you got off to do the trimming while you were there. I don't remember how long the power cord was but it was light enough that one could probably hold it in one hand while driving around/along the obstacle.

To weed eat under the fence line I have often thought about adding a detachable mount for the weed eater on a small riding mower. It would need a pivot mechanism in case a fence post was hit.

How about sitting a lawn chair on the left rear corner of the bush hog. The wife drives the tractor while you sit in the lawn chair with the weed eater in your lap. The bush hog should probably be disengaged.

Someday expect to read. “There are no more farmers. The tractors have killed all the farmers.”

Northern Tool sells a trimmer like this for fence rows.
You pull it behind a lawn tractor or atv and it
is offset to get under a fence and around the fence posts.
It will also swivel out of the way when it encounters
the fence post to get around it.

Expensive little bugger.
I'd have to have a lot of fence row to need one of these.
