Trimmers come in three basic models. Electric string trimmers run on household power and require an extension cord. The upside of this is that you don't need to fuel them or worry about charging your batteries. Cordless string trimmers use batteries and are both portable and eco-friendly. Just make sure that you have a spare battery on the charger to swap out once your current battery runs down. Gas trimmers use gasoline or a gasoline mix to run. They deliver consistent power and run for a long time on one tank of fuel. A full gas can keeps them running all day, which makes gas-powered models ideal for mobile landscaping operations.
Traditional string trimmers feed out more line when you bump the base of the model against the ground. For extra convenience, auto-feed models detect the need for more line and release it as the line breaks off against rocks or other hard features. Trimmer accessories such as extra line spools are handy to have on hand, and can be the difference between finishing the job when you start it or waiting to get a replacement.
If you need power greater than what a regular string trimmer delivers, upgrade to brush cutters, high-performance tools that are easy to use. They're ergonomic and make a great purchase for large properties or professional use.
