String trimmer mower

However, livestock have pretty much stopped serving as lawn mowers at most country homes, and new ways of keeping empty lots and fencerows clean have emerged. One tool that's rapidly becoming popular is the string-trimmer mower.
String-trimmer mowers sprang from the limited capabilities of handheld string trimmers. Even the smallest walk-behind models have three times the power and triple the cord size of most handhelds. This means they can gnaw through tall grass and weeds without bogging down or breaking and wearing out the trimmer line.
