Trying out Swisher Trim & Mow for the 1st time. Works pretty good for tall grass and weeds. However, as shown in the video, it’s not so
good when it hits woody type weeds as they will break the string.
A brush hog, it’s not! When I ran out of the .115″ diameter string that came with it, I decided to see what would happen if I used some thinner string I had left over from a standard weed eater. This stuff is only .065″ thick (1/16″) and it actually works pretty good. I double it up so
it’s 4 strings on each loop instead of 2 of the string that came with it. It doesn’t cut up the woody brush either, but it seems to be more flexible. It wears out a little more gradually and is much cheaper. The drive belt has been slapping the plastic housing over a period of time and tore a hole in it. Doesn’t affect the performance, but looks bad. I have heard someone else complain of the same problem on another site. I don’t think it has an adjustment to tighten the belt, but I will look at it next spring. Might have to loosen the motor mounts and move the entire motor back a fraction.
Still starts nice and easy. Push the primer button 2 or 3 times before starting.
The invention of synthetic plastic created an era of disposable products. Watertight and endlessly malleable, plastic is the perfect invention yet, its miraculous durability is also its curse because it never goes away. In the early 21st Century, rumors about an island of garbage somewhere in the Paciﬁc Ocean, started to rise. TV host and ﬁlmmaker Angela Sun, decided to investigate. Her journey takes her thousands of miles from human civilization. There, in what should be a remote tropical paradise, she discovers an ecosystem inundated by plastic waste. Exposed to seawater and sunlight, tons of discarded plastics are breaking down into smaller fragments resembling food to ﬁsh and birds. The images Angela uncovers, combined with the latest evidence from researchers, shows that the truth behind the myth is much worse than imagined. A growing toxic confetti is transforming the oceans and is also working its way up the food chain that humans depend on. Angela returns from Midway with even more questions. She seeks out scientists and health experts who reveal that chemicals in many of the plastic products we take for granted are harmful. She encounters environmental activists trying to raise awareness and legislators struggling to address the problem. She uncovers the hidden truth about recycling and attempts to contact the leaders of an all-powerful petrochemical industry in control of our limitless production and consumption of plastic. Angela’s journey is one that everyone living in a disposable society needs to see.
