Electric String Trimmers - Which One Suits You Best?

Today, electric cutters are essential for adding a finishing touch to a newly cut lawn. But with so many different types, where do you start to look? Before buying a lawn mower, walk around your yard and try to calculate the time it takes to complete the mower, as this will play a role in your decision.

The latest wire cutters are powerful enough to handle almost all weeds and weeds. You do not need to handle the gas cutter. Let's take a look at what types of electric lawn mowers are available and which personalization features are best for your gardening needs.

Mower cable

So far, cable cutters are the lightest of all fine-tuning weights and weigh between 5 and 10 pounds. With the push of a button, you can start using it and be quieter than a gas cutter. They require a feed point and are limited to the length of the extension.

This limit is 100 feet, because no more, the string trimmer will not have enough power to work properly. Therefore, if you have a particularly large attribute, a wireless trimmer might be more appropriate. But for everyone, cable cutters are the ideal choice.

Wireless trimmer

The wireless trimmer is not limited by the extension cord, so it can move freely regardless of its size. However, cordless knives rely on rechargeable batteries that generate energy. These batteries have very different operating times and are highly controversial among users.

Some people run for about an hour, while others only need 15 to 20 minutes at a time. This is not the only problem, as charging some batteries can take up to 8 hours to be used again.

Fortunately, there are others that can load quickly enough (in less than an hour) so you can continue and get the job done. One solution is to buy several batteries in order to be able to replace them and continue, but it can be expensive. Some lawn mowers come with a pair of batteries so you can use one and the other to charge.

Balance brings another important issue: the upper rechargeable battery and the lower motor, the higher the balance, the lighter the bush cutter.

Other features to consider

1) Choose lawn mowers with swivel heads: These mowers allow you to rotate the head 90 degrees and use it as a border to cut flower beds, sidewalks, etc.

2) Replacing the yarn reel: When trimming, the reel does not require a large amount of dead time, so a detachable cutting head is required.

3) Manual, semi-automatic and automatic feed systems: The manual feed system requires you to stop trimming and advance manually. For semi-automatic feeding or hump, you must touch the bottom of the ground mower to advance the line. There are two types of automatic feeding systems: a) the trimmer uses centrifugal force to deliver more lines or b) introduces a new pipe length when the trimmer is stopped and restarted. You may need to do this multiple times because the string trimmer can only fire 1/4 inch at a time.

4) Cordless cutting machines use rechargeable nickel-cadmium (NiCad) or lithium (lithium ion) batteries. The NiCad battery is the oldest battery type used in the dresser. They weigh twice as much as lithium-ion batteries, but their power is cut in half. This is the best option if you can use a lithium ion battery trimmer.

5) The path or cutting edge of the mower differs from the mower to another mower. It ranges from 8 inches to 15 inches. Keep in mind that the smaller the cutting path, the longer the job will be.

6) Be careful when using the string trimmer, as they will generate a lot of debris. Wear long pants and always wear eye protection. If the sound of the potentiometer is too big for you, wear an earmuff for the earplugs.

Using the above information, you now know what features are important and what you should pay attention to when purchasing a wire cutter. I hope this short guide will help you make an informed decision when deciding to purchase a wire cutter.
