Trimmer Attachment For Riding Mowers

This new attachment lets you trim grass around trees, under fences and near walls right from the seat of your riding mower.
  Geared for commercial mowing at a cost of about $2,000, the trimmer mounts on one side of the deck and is powered by a self-contained, high rpm hydraulic pump and motor. A hydraulic reservoir mounts on front of the deck. A foot pedal is used to activate the trimmer head and also to laterally extend or retract it. You can feed more line into the head by tapping down on a handle that's attached to the unit. The trimmer head can be tilted to any angle by pulling or pushing on another handle.
  Two other models, driven by an electric motor that operates off the mower's battery, are also available. Model Z is designed for zero turn mowers and has a foot-operated on-and-off switch and foot controls for lateral movement of the trimmer. Model C is designed for conventional riding mowers and has a keyed on-and-off switch and hand controls for lateral movement of the trimmer.
  Both models sell for less than $1,000.
