FAQs About Weed Eaters
Should I get a gas or electric weed eater?
Both gas and electric weed eaters have their specific pros and cons. In general, get a gas weed eater allows you to move freely throughout a large yard, untethered. Gas-powered weed eaters typically have more power to cut through dense growth. On the flipside, if you have a smaller yard with lighter growth and want to be more environmentally-friendly, consider an electric weed eater.
How do I make sure I’m safe while using a weed eater?
Weed eaters have a bad reputation of throwing painful debris at your legs. While shopping, keep an eye on the guard around the strings. A larger guard will mean less chance of debris or the strings hitting you. We advise to always wear protective eyewear and follow the safety instructions that come with the machine.
What are my options for a cordless weed eater?
Juggling a cord while trying to trim a landscape is of the most frustrating parts of trimming. If you want to avoid the cord altogether, go for a gas weed eater or try a cordless electric. Cordless electric models come with rechargeable batteries that slide in and out of the machine.
