I just couldn't keep fixing that chinamart $59. weedeater brand string trimmer.

I couldn't keep pulling the rope for 15 minutes to get it to start, only to have it stall out because it hit a large blade of grass.

So, I spent the money and got a new 4 cycle Honda trimmer.
No more trying to make precise measurements of gas and oil.
No more worrying about it being too rich or too lean.

Just a light tug on the rope and away I go!

At 13 pounds, it's a little heavier than my old chinamart weedeater.
But, it doesn't bog down or stall out in the thick grass.
I am very tight with a dollar!
Atwoods had it for 20% off.. I figured that it was now or never at that price.
So, I made the purchase.

It will take me a while to get over the guilt of robbing my piggy-bank.
But, it's nice to use a decent piece of equipment, instead of a piece of crap for a change.

The smile on your face as you use your new trimmer will go a loooong way towards relieving any guilt. Your time and effort are worth something, too, and we all need a new toy now and then - especially a really useful toy!

P.S. as a new retiree, I love your sig! So true!
