    Default Hydraulic articulating arm string trimmer?

    I know that that thsi is a dumb question....and being a Noobie, and i suppose I should dig harder on the search........BUT'
    Does any one make a articulating arm string trimmer?

    Side mount, to reach rocky banks and cut weeds and brush?
    Thanks for any info.

    I am looking for exactly that but a lot more substantial than a string trimmer. I need to cut brush - up to 2" buck-brush. I need TPH mount though.

    A TPH arangement set up would be alright as well......and I know the make a sidw mount brush hog as they trim the brush along our raod with one....But it's on a big machine not a 3015 Mahindra.

    and

    DR DR Power Equipment - Brush Hog / Brush Mower ? clear land / brush - mow saplings make tow-behind mowers that travel beside the tractor but they aren't string trimmers.

    I'm been trying to figure out how much hassle it would be to mount a big wheel type string trimmer to a platform that extends out 90 degrees from my forklift forks. Seems trivial to remove the wheels, handle, then bolt the axle to a plank. Would need to create an extension for the throttle and some kind of kill switch.

    The top one is kinda what I had in mind, I gonna call them and see it thatr arm can be articulated up and down to trim along a steep bank.

    The old side bar mowers might work, but I have a lots of rocks to deal with....
    but that is close.

    I do have a trail mower that I have basically burned down since 1995, as I used it behing the 4 wheeler for a lot of years before I got the tractor....Not a Swisher, but same deal...still runs but is really beat up....LOL.
    Must have broke the tounge off 4 or 5 times

    Just called the guy with the side arm, and it remains 90 degrees with no way to raise and lower the cutter....He did suggest a sickle bar mower...too many rocks.

    Or this one, my tractor is too small....

    Google the Swisher Postmaster. It's not exactly what you're after but it might give you some ideas.

    Cut the big ones with a chainsaw, then mount an old lawnmower on a boom, with or without wheels.

    I have an older model 5HP DR trimmer mower that is a beast as a walk behind and the belt keeps triping off from heavy brush limbs. Cuts up to 1" blackberry vines like they are butter. I am toying with a way to mount on the FEL, delete the mickey mouse clutch idler pulley (source of the belt tripping) and replace the motor w/a hydraulic motor powered off the tractor. Would have to work out the speed problem as few HMs run at 3600 RPM like a gas engine. That would be easy to hinge mount and have a posistioning cylinder to angle up and down toget bslopes both up and down. Next winter's project to flesh out.

    Any bright guys done this type thing yet?
