We’ve listed a few features of weed trimmer that one should always keep in mind before purchasing.
- Width of trim – The trim width or the complete diameter of strings is often approximately 12 inches.
In case you need to trim voluminous area then go for 15 inches width of trim.
- Power of motor – Trimming completely varies from lawn to lawn. As some might have to trim the boundary of the lawn while others would have to completely go through the area due to the presence of weeds in different amounts in the lawn.
Work load is directly proportional to the power the process might consume. You’ll use trimmers in some heavy volume area. Therefore you need to choose a trimmer which provides higher voltage.
There’s an ‘AH’ indicator which shows us the duration of its working hours without being plugged in.
We are mentioning this to you because buyers often are interested in knowing weed trimmer’s AH feature.
Battery would work for long if the AH indicator is higher. Although we cannot find the accurate duration of its working.
There will be times when you will use zap for gentle trimming but other times you will use it for long duration with motor at full speed.
If you’ll use motor at full speed then there’re chances of battery not working for too long.
All in all the ‘AH’ feature an only provide you with a guess of its working duration not the exact time of its working as it completely depends upon the way you use it.
The Ego Power+ comes with wide trim width and a powerful battery of 56V. Its rate is also very nominal making it our one of the favorite weed trimmers. Its shaft is made using aluminum which helps us in keeping the mass of the product low yet maximizes its strength.
Key feature of this product is that it comes with brushless motor which helps keeping the tool light in weight, and minimizes the sound it produces and also works efficiently.
Its trimmer head is also replaceable making it more user friendly. Ensure that you buy a perfectly fitting replacement string, which you’ll be able to find here.
DEWALT is considered to be one of the best cordless string trimmer models and also the expensive one on our list.
It has a 15-inch wide trim and also a long running life due to its high AH.
It has a speed choice between high and low. Also, it comes with a brushless motor alike the product we talked about previously.
It weighs around 13.9 pounds and comes with a gear drive which helps you in an easy trimming of weeds.
Coming on to a frequently asked question i.e. ‘why is it so expensive?’
The answer to it is that the set comes along with a trimmer, battery and battery charger, and if you would purchase it from somewhere outside then it’d be even more expensive.
If we look at the durability of this product’s battery and also its quality then it is a good deal to invest in it no matter the work is big or small, regular or irregular.
Another suggestion of ours will be sort of more pocket friendly as well as suitable for lighter trimming work.
It weighs only 5.7 pounds and is one of the most popular products amongst many gardeners because of the same feature.
