Well Rik, that's another masterpiece of video making. You are a master in more ways than one aren't you. I seem to have missed your 3d printing of those loco's though.

Have you put it on the forum.... :dontknow: Stupid question really... :roll: :roll:

Terrific. And even better watching it on a large(r) screen.

(I sometimes think my own video looks best on the iphone — it ‘tightens up’ any resolution issues and appears to ‘intensify’ colour)

Isn't there a strimmer on a wagon shown somewhere on the Forum? I know I have seen one somewhere.
...maybe Mike Barton's from one of our virtual meet-ups?

My version of the strimmer car would need to have two vertically mounted blades. Most of my problems come from side hanging foliage ..... :?

Rik
Yes, I'll have one of those as well please. Can you design it by tonight? :lol:

I wonder how a 6" or 8" dia model plane propeller would go mounted on the side of a wagon, with a 3V motor??

You could design the rail equivalent of this, and then trim top and sides!

I was thinking the same thing Greg but wasn't game to suggest it

A propeller powered connected to a brushless motor powered by a 3.7V Lipo would certainly cut through soft foliage, a double shafted motor with a propeller may even work albeit with a larger power source.
I have employed a contractor to trim some of my plants, he works for nothing but is selective with what he trims. Also known as a possum!!!
