Electric Trimmers: Trimmer/Mower

For rocky and hilly acreage, consider a 4-cycle, two-wheel trimmer/mower. It will cut grass like a rotary mower without the shriek of metal blades scalping rocks, and because the string head sits way out in front, it trims right up to posts and walls. The disadvantages are price (starting at $450) and the fact that you can't flip it up on edge for maintaining a crisp border around beds and walks, as you can with a regular string trimmer.
