Hey there! This one was a lot of fun to make! Ever since the lawn mower video I've been wanting to do this, and I've been working on it all week. Thank you for those of you who support us on Patreon! You bring stability to my family's life. My goal is to be a light during this time. www.patreon.com/smartereveryday I know the world is a bit crazy at the moment. I wish you and your family peace and love. Spread the love and help others where you can. Look for the positive stories of people coming together in unity and try to amplify them. There's a lot of disinformation at the moment so if you recall what we learned together in the social media disinformation series, think twice before you share something! Warm Regards, Destin

Embarrassing man confession: Until I watched this, I had no idea you extended the nylon chord by hitting the big button on the ground. For years I've been stopping turning the strimmer (as we say in the UK) upside down and holding it in-between my knees while pressing the button and pulling the chord out by hand. Boy do I feel dumb.

Okay this is a tricky one which way do you go with the weed wacker and how do you hold it. So line trimmers are a mechanical scythe made for right-handed use and if you think about using a scythe your natural tendency would be to put your strong arm at the center and your weak arm at the back. But if you're right-handed and you think about pulling that trigger too much you might want to put the trigger in your right hand.... This is wrong! Because the head spins counterclockwise and so you want to move from right to left always with the weed wacker. Have the trigger in your left hand and now you'll be able to walk forward and the grass will get thrown in front of you as opposed to directly backwards at your ankles and face. Doesn't really matter when you're cutting just grass no big deal until you pick up that stick or catch a rock. If you hold it the other way you'll have to walk backwards to get the same effect and you'll take foooorrrrreeeevvvvveeeeerrrrr to do what should take 5-30 min depending how big the yard is. Also if you run your line too long and you're using your trimmer everyday you'll destroy your clutch very quickly. I don't run mine with a guard. So to get the line equal length and the appropriate length I just turn it sideways and plaster it on the street for a second.

Of course, so many people refer to various products by the name that first made that product popular, hence "weed eater", then on the market " weed wacker ". The correct nomenclature is string line weed trimmer. This was drilled into me by the company rep. when I used to sell Echo products.

“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single cubit to his life span? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” --Matthew 6:25-34

Destin ''..weedeaters'' Me ''strimmers'' Destin ''...weedeaters'' Me *''strimmers''* Destin ''..weedeaters'' me *''STRIMMERS, THEYRE CALLED STRIMMERS, CUZ THEY STRIM GRASS DUSTIN'!!!* jeez'' I'm kidding obvs, but I'm British, so we call 'em strimmers. when i was a greenkeeper at Slaley Hall Golf Course in Hexam, we used petrol strimmers. Saying that, strimmers probably sounds like a made up word to some, but you can google it, its a real word that us island fairies created to describe *strimmers* 🤣

I don't think it makes sense for it to be aerodynamic drag that causes the line to lag like that, at least not the main cause. maybe my intuition is just wrong but I think that's just the way non-ridged bodies would react to constant acceleration, I'd imagine that it'd look mostly the same in a vacuum.

Destin these videos are great. I’m enjoying the landscaping videos you’ve done as of late. I’ve landscape for years and there some things that happen I’d love to see you be able to do. We use to have guys run over ground stakes in the ground with push mowers and I’d love to see what happens to the blade and the mower as it strikes the stake. Thanks for all your hard work on all your videos Destin
