It’s important to choose the right grass trimmer based on the areas you intend to use it. Will you need the strimmer® to work in large grass areas, on patches of overgrown weeds and brambles, or as an edging tool for paths and borders?
For heavily overgrown areas, you’ll need to choose a trimmer with a wide cutting swathe. (The bigger the width of the trimmer, the more it can cut in one go.) Strimmers® with smaller cutting swathes are lighter in weight and more manoeuvrable, especially in confined spaces.
The cutting cord can be attached to strimmer® in a variety of ways. With some models, you will need to replace the broken cord with a new one when it breaks. Others include an integral spool.
One version automatically feeds cord as required to give hours of continuous trimming; the other bump feeds. When you need more line you tap the head of the machine on the ground and cord automatically feeds through. Spools that are factory wound offer maximum reliability – making the cord less likely to break or become tangled.
