Cut Weeds With Your Chain Saw
If your chain saw has a 318 in. pitch drive sprocket, or can be fitted with one, you can make use of the weedcutting attachment. Just remove the nose bar and saw chain, fit the attachment in place, and attach a short loop of cutterless drive chain. Changeover time is about five minutes. (Note: In the accompanying photo, the nosebar and saw chain were left on to demonstrate the conversion.)
The trimmer head is made of aluminum. A handle on the shaft makes for easier and balanced carrying.
The Trimette GSA retails for $69.95 and does the work of Hoffco's gaspowered trimmer selling for $199, according to Bill Smith, marketing director. It weighs less than 71bs7 so, with the cutter bar removed, very little weight is added. Comes complete with 50 ft. of cutting line and all necessary changeover parts.
Hoffco has also introduced a brush cutting attachment for chain saws. It resembles the GSA except that, in place of a'monofilament cutting line, it has an 8 in. circular saw blade.
