Selecting a weed eater.
I am a woman, and find it impossible to pull start any equipment, otherwise I'm amazingly strong. My 1 acre property is very uneven and I need to get in there about once or twice a year to clear the weeds. My husband can start the machine for me, but it is infuriating (had a Sears weed eater) if I have to climb back to the house for him to start it again every time it dies on me, or I have to change the line.
So to summarize, I need either a weed eater that is i) easy for me to start, OR ii) once it is going, can do the whole job without stopping and starting over and over again.
