DFT with large yard. I have all gas powered tools, now I'm disabled, both shoulders and oxygen 24/7 so in a bind. My front yard is rather large and over grown. My backyard is needing weed whacked, mowed and dead trees needing cut for firewood. I can't handle the fumes, the pull starting on 2 mowers, 3 weed wackers and 2 chainsaws. I'm hurting everyday trying to make a dent on this yard. My disability is around $710 a month and being a single parent adds to my stressful situation. My mom is trying to see if she can afford to buy the 15" trimmer to help me. But I don't think I can do the entire yard with it. Will EGO handle my yard? Can the plastic cutting blades/head be installed on the weed trimmer? I know the self-propelled mower, Edger and chainsaw are needed. But I can't afford it and don't want to get cited for weeds over 8" ext. Any ideas? Thinking about GreenWorks to ask for help as a test site. Don't think Worx could handle the tasks.
