Weed eater tripod with wheels.
I have a cub cadet weedeater. I have 700 feet of fence(you have to trim both sides)and some more beds to trim. It takes so long to do. By the time I am half way through I am so tired and covered with grass that the second half turns out terrible. I saw this and it made me think. I am wondering if anyone knows of diy plans for something similar. I imagined 3 wheels. The front one might be on a spring or suspension of some sort. Any thoughts?

sounds like you want an electric mower without the safety deck. on "swamp people," they'd take a a cutting torch to one from a flea market.

I saw something a few years ago with three cutter wheels and an open side that would probably do it, but have no further information.

sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?

Would take too many batteries. I don't need it to stand on its own but to take the weight off of it a bit and be maneuverable. The one whee thing seems cumbersome.
