Weed Eaters, Trimmers + Brush Cutters
String trimmers and brush cutters put the finishing touches on a well-manicured lawn by cleaning up the areas your lawn mower cannot reach. Carefully shape grass around trees, flower beds, and structures with powerful trimmers and brush cutters from dependable brands including Honda, Milwaukee, Husqvarna, and Stihl, among others.
Handheld vs. Walk-Behind
Deciding between a handheld and wheeled or walk-behind trimmer is one of personal preference. Handheld units are lightweight, easy to carry, and small enough to fit into narrow spaces. Walk-behind units are an excellent option for those who do not wish to carry a machine. They are also a smart choice for tackling larger areas of heavy vegetation, as they will allow you to finish mowing the space in less time than a handheld unit would require.
If you are regularly maintaining a property 1-acre or larger, a gas-powered trimmer is highly recommended. Gas units are more powerful than electric and battery-powered units and provide the user with longer operation time. For these reasons, gas string trimmers will offer the highest level of efficiency for immense properties. Electric trimmers are better suited for small yards (½ acre or less), as they require an extension cord and connection to a plug-in power source to operate. These units are the lightest of all trimmers. If your outdoor space has a lot of landscape obstacles, such as trees, choose a battery-powered or cordless electric trimmer. Although slightly heavier than corded electric trimmers, cordless trimmers provide users with more freedom and mobility. Charge and operation times of cordless string trimmers vary by battery type. Lithium-ion batteries tend to provide more power and run time.
Depending on the trimmer you choose, compatible attachments may be available. Our selection of trimmer attachments includes edgers, hedge trimmer blades, cultivators, and blowers. For more ergonomic use of your handheld trimmer, you may also want to consider a weight absorbing trimmer strap.
