When you find something that works and that you like, go buy 3 more so the next time it needs replacing you don't have to worry about whether the store will still have them =)

A tool I know well. I think my Stihl brush cutter is the single most valuable tool in my farm maintenance arsenal. I maintain about 3000 feet of fence lines and I have worn out two professional models over the past 12 years. I am saving for a new one again as my current one is getting weak and can not be rebuilt again. Truly a valuable, valuable tool that is responsible in great part for any sense of "tidy" my farm has.

Rae- I do that with some things, but felt like our source in Gate City is steady and reliable.

Elise- That is a lot of fence line. If I had to do a constant line I might try to add some sort of wheel that rides on the ground to decrease the load on the shoulder.
