We’re at a loss... it looks sorta similar to giant hogweed, which is apparently super dangerous to handle...thoughts?

There's an app for this. It'll tell ya what it is if you take a picture of it. Can't think of the name, but it's like top 3 apps when you search for it.

My little battery powered Ryobi whacker ain't doing SHIT against that. It often times gets bogged down in thick grass :roflpicard:

I actually had to go look up what Hogweed was.

This one has no flowers, doesn't have white hairs and purple blotches on the trunk area.

We saw the purple at the base, and the white hairs on the stem, the size of the stem, and a general leaf shape, and that's what gave us pause to do more investigation before I just grabbed it and pulled it up or went after it with the sawzall.

Ahh, I wasn't seeing that in the pics, but obviously eyes will see that nuance better.

Go in like a beekeeper, you'll be fine.

18V, it does not whoop ass...it's a one stringer too...when we upgrade houses, I'll be upgrading to a gas whacker, like God intended


Honestly my 40v dual stringer kicks ass... I love it


Hell the 18v brushless was more than powerful enough imho

The one I used to use is called LeafSnap. Just take a picture of the plant leaf and it'd pop up the plants that closely resemble that plant. It was pretty damn accurate last time I used it (many years ago).
