I can't stand that kind of vibration.
Different with battery string trimmers, it’s a thing in the landscaping world to end up with nerve damage in the arms from petrol handheld equipment. Many here switched to electric for relief or prevention.

Oh wow its about time. My dad told me a story where he couldn't feel his arms after an afternoon of weed whacking haha. Every once in a while the tendons in my hand rub due to gripping nailers. Tendonitis is absolutely debilitating, it's a miracle I've only had it a few times in my life the way I work..

So as I suspected after the initial simple wire switch was ineffective this would be quite involved. That’s not the end of the world as I’m a bit of a hobby tinkerer, I’m just a lot handier with mechanical things. I have some rudimentary electrical skills and I’m heavily into high end diy car audio, so I feel I’m up to the task of going so far as to even get inside the motor to switch things if necessary.

If some of y’all would be interested in continuing to advise me I would buy either an electronic assembly or just a whole bare powerhead for around a hundred bucks and have that be my project unit. Of course I’d love to have a single switchable unit but I’m not against one stock and one modified specifically for string trimmer duty. It’s probably better to have a second modified one to always have the unadulterated one for a reliable tool incase Frankenstein breaks lol. Is there any information I can furnish to aid anyone willing to participate with me on this?
