My! My! Chief. Four Weed eaters!!! Hummm……Let me see.... that one each for you, your wife, and two young uns.
My kids are all grown and gone. Wife is scared to touch anything that may crank and be use for yard work, so I get to do all the mowing and weed eating. One weed eater is all I can run at a time……so I have just one.
I use .105 dia. String that I buy in 235 foot rolls. I fling it around with a Stihl FS 85.
The large rolls makes buying the string a little cheaper than buying it in the small rolls. No more than I use, I think the string on the large rolls has a tendency to develop a memory and seems to become a little brittle before I get it used up. When I mentioned this to the guy I buy the string from, he said what I should do is store the roll in a bucket of water.
Hard to believe that hard plastic will absorb water. I haven’t tried it yet, but next spring I’m going to give what is left over on the roll I carry through the winter a good soak and see if it makes a difference.

Harry, I won’t ask how you know, but I’m betting I have a good friend up around the big Apple who has experience patching aluminum siding.
