Grass Trimmers InformationGrass Trimmers, or Strimmers, are commonly used to cut grass in areas that are inaccessible or awkward to mow with a lawnmower, for example in between garden furniture and paving, on sloped ground or around shrubs, hedges and trees. They are used with trimmer line, usually a length of nylon cord, which is whipped around at high speed to cut plants and light weeds down to size. A more substantial type of grass trimmer, which can be used with a solid blade, is known as a brush cutter.
Here's our Quick Application Guide:•Corded Electric Grass Trimmers – usually the most affordable option, these machines are restricted by the amount of cable they are attached to but are great if you have a small garden or only need to trim near the house.
•Cordless Electric Grass Trimmers – Usually running off lithium ion batteries, these offer unrestricted freedom of movement but are generally less powerful than petrol or mains machines. However, lithium ion batteries are much more user friendly than petrol, and can often be used to power other compatible tools as well.
• Petrol Grass Trimmers – Petrol engines offer great performance and runtime but they tend to be much louder than electric variants, and come with the added inconvenience of having to buy, mix and safely store fuel. They are usually a good option for professional landscapers or properties with large amounts of land.
Grass Trimmer Safety:When using corded power tools outdoors it is always a good idea to use an RCD to safeguard against electrocution. If using a petrol trimmer, take the necessary precautions to ensure fuel is stored safely in between use. All grass trimmers are capable of throwing up small stones and other objects so eye protection should always be worn when using them or working around them.
