If anybody wants the detailed construction drawings let me know

I'm almost afraid of the answer that I could potentially get but you seem about half twisted enough to come back with something interesting.

So, I'll bite.

 

Hey Dan? How about sharing the detailed construction drawings?

 

Also, does it take special clutch foot sensitivity training to pilot that assembly?

I would think you could get the most even cut at top speed, trying to hold the trimmer steady for long periods of time is the problem.  :eusa-think:

Clutch sensitivity or the grip of a primate.... You decide....

I agree, it gets heavy really fast that thing. We found you could keep the whole rig moving at a decent speed while cutting. It's a bit dodgy but the idea has merit if you ditched the ladder and put a platform of the trailer, especially if it has a drinks holder.

Both of those would be handy given the situation of the different parties involved. Trimmer holder person should also consider growing a prehensile tail.

The fact you have to use two hands to operate the safety switches on the trimmer was a bit of a handicap - tail would have been useful to wrap around the ladder rungs, wiping sweat of brow and for holding beer.

You'd want to be sure the driver was your friend.

Now here is the proper way to be doing that job!

Always have to go one better!

 

It's ok, I'm buying an excavator soon so can get the wheelhorse up on top of the hedge then.

Yap, i will show, 

 

nice ideas at all i had also the last 2 years, but without second person you’re fail.

 

so i did it my Way...

use a simple Sicklebar provide it with an 8gpm Oilmotor and here we go...

 

 

It cuts accurately enough... 

follows slightly the Landscape and give yourself some seat time..

 

Ok a FEL and a 4 gpm Oilsystem is required.

Now for something really exciting, I would like to see Kevin @pullstart on top of that ladder.

 

After seeing what he can do with a little OSHA approved hand drill,     I'm thinking multiple limb amputations and several broken bones.

don’t forget, I fell off the ladder in my barn earlier this year too!  I was recording a video about my buggy for @ZXT :ROTF:

Instead of the ladder a tennis umpires chair would be ideal. :handgestures-thumbup:

So much more stable!

 

The trailer moving back and forth in the hitch was the scariest part.

yep.  7/16” bit in my hand last Friday.  It’s healing up well.  FYI Jonah, I’m heading out of town to DFW Sunday afternoon!
