It's a typical string trimmer, albeit with more power than most. I've been able to get through pretty much anything with mine, apart from thick, woody stems.

That said, I don't know that it's a good idea to be slinging poison ivy debris around by using a string trimmer. It seems like a good way to get it all over you (I get poison ivy very easily). I prefer to spray the stuff.
