Are you folks developing a walk behind string trimmer, or a rolling base for any of your existing trimmers?  We have a large area to weed whack, and it would be a lot easier if we did not have to carry the weight of the unit.  Your mower does not seem suitable for weeds.

Have not heard about any wheels or a walk behind string trimmers. 
But hop to the 2 minute mark in this video and see if you underestimate what an Ego mower can do.  LM2142 in the video

Thanks for the video.  My concern about the mower is that the ground is uneven and there are some small rocks and other debris.  A mower blade could suffer a lot more damage than a string.

There is always the shoulder strap option and very economical.
