Weed Trimmer Turned Into "Power Scrubber"
You can replace the string head on a weed trimmer with a broom head to turn it into a handy power scrubber, says Tom Hill of Battle Creek, Mich.
  He bought a used electric trimmer at a garage sale for 50 cents. He removed the string head and then cut a chunk off an old wooden barn broom and screwed it onto the base.
  "It works great for loosening dried-up mud on floors," says Hill. "It also works good for loosening up sawdust that we sprinkle onto floors to soak up oil spills. We haven't tried using it yet to clean up a vehicle, but it would probably do a good job. The broom head isn't quite perfectly balanced so it vibrates a lot, which probably helps to loosen things up."
