Good weed wacker on wheels?

Hey guys, so my back hurts when I used a regular Black and Decker weed wacker so I am looking for an option on wheels. I found this online:

https://www.amazon.com/SereneLife-Re...cker+on+wheels

I am seeking something with similar design preferably with a cordless option without too much hassle changing the string, that has always been a major pain. Any referrals please?

Thanks, i had seen some like them but the gas would be the issue according to the reviews.

Something like this if on wheels would do:

How about a shoulder strap to get the strain off the arms!

Problem with all the below, will be difficult or time consuming to get anywhere without solid surface to roll it on!

Aside from taking the strain off my back, arms and shoulders, it very difficult to maintain an even cut. I am thinking if it's on wheels then should give a more even cut?

On wheel cuts will be more even, but it'll depend on the bumps on the lawn. If this is by a curb, it'll be better to use the wheel on the curb.

Also, just curious, how is your posture when doing the weed whacker? Your shoulders should be getting tired, not back. If you do a lot of outside work, a back support device might be what you need. This is especially true if you garden a lot or do hardscaping, I wish I had one while creating a shed foundation.

Yes, it's the curb I'm referring to, between the sidewalk and street. I found this image in my net searches from this page: http://eatingweedz.com/weed-eaters-on-wheels/

but can't find it anywhere online:

I looked on Amazon and found some hits for "Trimmer Lawn Mower", it also included weed whackers on wheels, such as from Worx. The one in the picture has Makita colors, but I can't find it online anywhere. The engineer in me could probably grab some wheels at HD and make a makeshift axle to make my own wheel assembly on my whacker, the larger wheels won't be as prone to small bumps.


Here's a nifty one - http://a.co/hJQNN6C

Based on the items shown you could just strap your weedeater on an old golf bag cart. Have a good one. Geo
