String Trimmers for mowing grass ?

Which trimmer is best for grass cutting ? I have large areas that are much too steep for a mower, and have to use a weedeater. The string type trimmer that I use doesn't cut grass very evenly.
Aren't there some models that also allow plastic blades to be attached for heavy brush and/or grass ??

Good day James. I would _highly_ recommend that you stay away from the 'plastic' blades and the like. These are usually cheap nylon that will degrade rather quickly. It sounds like the trimmer that your using at the moment is not powerful enough for the job or the string size is not big enough.
I would recommend that you look at the husqvarna line that Lowes carries. These are very well built, near pro quality machines that will have enough power to do what you need. I would warn you to watch out for Echo products, as they have weak carburetors. After 100/150 hours of use the carburetor will be shot and need to be rebuilt. This design is due to the enviromental requirments of many U.S states. Besides, the cheap carburetors keep dealers in business.
To be honest, the best option (if possibe) is to place appropriate landscaping in the area. A low growing, low maintaince ground cover or....? Use your imagination. This will save you time and money in the long run. Good luck and enjoy...... Timothy
