String trimmers are handheld gardening tools used to get into places that a lawn mower can’t reach. They are perfect to help you cut down brush, weeds and longer grass on steep inclines. String trimmers are also used to edge or trim for a noticeably “finished” yard.
Gasoline powered string trimmers offer power, and cord free operation at a competitive price. This is attractive for maintaining large yards, tall grass and weeds, or clearing brush. Electric trimmers are competent for many general trimming tasks.
With its long handle, light weight, and whirling string, a string trimmer is ideal for a world of yard maintenance. Trim away grass and weeds against a fence, right up to tree trunks, and underneath shaggy boughs. Straighten edges around flowerbeds, sidewalks, and driveways. Tidy up a hillside, level scrub and saplings, overall it can give your lawn and yard great finishing touches.
Although string trimmers are available in electric and cordless models, these are generally made for light duty projects. You’ll need a gasoline-powered string trimmer for tall grass, weeds, and any more industrious projects like clearing brush or clearing rocky terrain.
Briggs & Stratton engines are found in powerful gas powered string trimmers that whirl a plastic line at speeds up to 400 mph. String trimmers with Briggs & Stratton engines range between $150 and $300.
