Just four Texas brothers trying to homestead! Sit back and enjoy while we learn and enjoy the simple life together! We love making videos.

We raise goats, laying hens, meat birds and meat rabbits on our 5 acre homestead. We are planting on contour, using swales to develop a sustainable food forest. While using our goats to clear land and our chickens to fertilize and till the ground, putting our animals to work for us implementing permaculture to maximize our efforts.

We hope you enjoy our videos and learn together with us since we are just getting started.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good job. However, you should have flipped the unit over and let it rest on the handles and engine shroud. By doing this the output shaft in the gear case would face upwards thus preventing the rider/thrust plates from slipping off. It would then be easy to install whatever Stihl head you wish to use.

Josh B says:

Awesome video y’all. What you have there is a super sharp, super safe, super sleek trimmer line cutter. Just bend the line, insert, and voila cuts at the bend. Stay Safe.

Gary R says:

Neat line cutter. I cut a bunch shove them in my pocket to have ready to go. Good job

Duckhead Homestead says:

Great job boys. I love my stihl trimmer and chainsaw. See ya.

Tiffany Lambert says:

Great video boys and like always I enjoy seeing how much you work and sharing tips and knowledge…wow I am amazed!!

Rosalie Mastropietro says:

That was great BUT this 76yr old lady (in Texas) wanted to see were the green string goes. Maybe you can do a video when you reload it. Take Care!

Kirsten Whitworth says:

Very clever, talented and skillful! You boys are turning into very good mechanics.
So, there’s a trick to those gas cans with those old-style nozzle spouts. When you are storing the gas, you can turn that nozzle upside down and put it inside the gas can and then put the lid back on. That way, the nozzle doesn’t get separated and lost from the gas can.
Thanks for the video.

Very good work!

Great job guys.

The washer with the spline is only for brush blade, the trimmer head just goes on with your piece that keeps falling and just the nut or bolt
