Best Weed Eaters 2017: How to Choose the Best Garden Weed Eater

One of the most important gardening tools for your lawn is a weed eater. The different types of weed eaters include electric string trimmers, gas string trimmers, and string trimmer mowers. When compared to gas models, electric string trimmers are simple and easy to maintain, and they are cleaner and quieter. Corded electric trimmers provide a steady source of power, without the weight of a battery and without regular recharging. In the contrary, a corded trimmer may limit the size of your work area since it needs an extension cord, making it difficult to maneuver especially if you have obstacles like trees and pots around your yard.

A cordless weed eater offers more mobility as compared to corded models. Cordless trimmers use 40 to 80 volts lithium-ion batteries to have more power and runtime better than lower voltage batteries to let you handle larger jobs. The charge time for these lithium-ion batteries varies ranging from 30 minutes for fast charging to 3 hours for standard charging. Some brands of cordless trimmers use batteries which also power other equipment in the yard such as chainsaws, hedge trimmers, leaf blowers, and mowers. Gas string trimmers have more mobility and long runtimes, ideal for large areas and those lawns with heavier growth. Most gas trimmers require to pull a cord, but some models can start with a powered device that is purchased separately. Gas trimmers must use the right fuel because they can only handle specific levels of ethanol, and it’s very important to follow the manufacturer’s requirements for the proper use of gas trimmers. It is best to purchase a string trimmer which accepts various attachments for other types of landscaping jobs. You can easily convert your unit with these attachments making it as a blower, edger, brusher cutter, cultivator, sweeper, hedge trimmer or pole saw. String trimmer mowers or walk-behind string trimmers are usually used in working with difficult to reach areas using a full-size mower but are too large to easily or effectively maneuver with a handheld trimmer.

Weed eaters are really helpful to make your landscaping job easier and the other benefits include flexibility, lightweight, ease-of-use, efficient to use and requiring less maintenance and repair. Some models of cordless weed eaters or cordless trimmers have two-in-one features cutting heavy weeds and overgrowth quietly, switching easily from trimmer to edger through its automatic feed spool, that eliminates the frequent “stop and bumps” found in other weed trimmers. Several brands of cordless trimmers have strict precise power control, variable speed for improved runtime management, and low-speed and high-speed control switch providing further user control.
