Important factors to consider when buying a line trimmer
- Terrain and size of the job – will determine how big of an engine you need and whether to choose a line trimmer with a bicycle style handle, or if you need a wheeled trimmer to tame rural property.
- Line, blade, or both – if you need to trim brush and small scrubs then buy a trimmer with a bigger engine and the option to change to a blade.
- Gas or battery powered – the latest lithium-ion battery powered line trimmers provide plenty of power, eliminate gas and reduce noise. Homeowners will enjoy the push button start-up and the low maintenance. Professional gardeners and landscapers can offer clients an eco-friendly service that is also noise compliant.
