"Fence Line" Trimmer For Skid Loaders, ATV's Garden Tractors
New "fence line" trimmer reaches right under fence lines and also automatically glides around all obstacles including fence posts and trees. The self-retracting, self-leveling trimmer can be used on skid steers, ATV's, garden tractors, utility tractors, and zero turn mowers.

    "It gives you a neat and clean trim path and keeps you moving without interruption. It virtually eliminates the need to hand trim," says Trent Borgeson, BorgEze Mfg., Mantorville, Minn.

    The trimmer is available in 20, 25, and 30-in. cutting widths. It requires tractor hydraulics of at least 8 gpm or it can be powered by a 5 1/2 hp gas engine. An optional 12 hp Honda gas engine is available for use with separate utility tractors.

    A spring and torsion guide system automatically adjusts the mower deck to the ground contour. The deck is free to go up and down any slope as well as around obstacles.

    "It works well in brush, so when you're done mowing your lawn you can use it to cut brush and tall weeds," says Borgeson. "When used with a skid loader, the deck can reach 24 inches under a fence line. If you use it on any other machine, the gas engine limits its reach to about 18 inches.

    "A centrifigural clutch is used on models that are powered by a gas engine, where the operator uses a hand throttle to engage or disengage the blades. A foot throttle is used to engage the blades on zero turn mowers and ATV's. A cable is attached to the foot bracket. When the operator lets off on the gas pedal, the motor slows down and disengages the mower."

    The base unit comes with a 20-in. deck and a Tecumseh gas engine and sells for $1,995.
