I’d get the trimmer, Millo. I’ve got a Tormek, a JET, a cheapo, and a treadle (that doesn’t really work, lol). I think it boils down to 1) the stone, 2) the motor, and 3) the available attachments. Unless you’re a lathe guy, I doubt you need anything other than a decent motor and stone. Find a quality vintage grinder at a garage sale and spend $30 on a nice stone. Then weedeat your property with your new trimmer:) Husqvarna by the way:)
