Q: How do I choose the right string trimmer for my yard?

It can be difficult to determine which style trimmer can help you cut unruly grass and weeds. There’s a lot of factors that go into each style of trimmer on the market. It’s important to consider your budget and the size of the area you’ll be working with. You also need to consider their weight and cutting width before making your decision.

Electric String Trimmers

Electric string trimmers are the clean and quiet option. They’re maneuverable, lightweight, and deliver the same performance as gas-powered models. Electric string trimmers are powered by a battery pack or an extension cord.

Gas-Powered String Trimmers

Choose a gas-powered string trimmer if you need to cut through thick weeds or grass. They’re made for larger lawns and are the choice of landscaping professionals. They’re typically at a higher price tag than electric strong trimmers, but are similar in weight.

Brush Cutters

Brush cutters are generally more powerful than string trimmers. They are built with bigger engines, thicker line, and powerful metals blades for tackling thick brush and weeds. If your current string trimmer doesn’t seem to be cutting it (literally and figuratively), a brush cutter may be your answer.
