Its a hair trimmer that attaches to your vacuum. Also has attachments to adjust the distance from the blade.

I guess the cutting surface is pretty small but it pretty cheap about $70 on the offical site but I'm sure you could find a used one for cheap. I think I might even have one somewhere.

You can also buy this little vaccuum

Just a suggestion.

are the blades sharp on that unit? Hair is not nearly as thick as a hedge. (especially with my receding hair line)

Sure the flowbee can't cut a hedge but I'm sure it could handle some leaves. They can be found on ebay easily for $20-$50.

Just an idea, I really have no idea if it's practical.

With all the MacGyvers on these forums I would think there is a diy to build your own from scratch. How hard could it be to get a motor and a blade and rig it all up.
 
Hey all - especially MajLeeStoned.....

the Garden Groom is on ebay also -- despite it being its first season, ebay has approx 30 as of today....prices range !! FYI

Three words for you boys: Electric lawn mower.

Turn the bitch upside down, get a replacement grate for a square BBQ grill, hit the corners with a weld (or strapping or conduit tape and some screws) and you've got a trimmer with some serious power for $150.

PLENTY of suction, relatively cheap, easy to remove blade for sharpening/cleaning.

Just seems like a no brainer. If suction, availability, and cost are your concerns, I think this route is better than modding out a garden groomer to make a half-assed trimmer with no suction when it's only going to save you maybe $50 and you'll end up spending 15min of out every trimming hour cleaning up and unclogging the thing because it has no suction.

Sounds way to small and weak weak..I have an Army surplus jet engine that I have been welding man hole covers over for the trim screen.

A man sized trimmer for my micro grow:sasmokin:

Pictures soon...
