If you can't stand the vibration and weight of the gas engine, this is for you. I've had neurosurgery on my right hand, so I can't start or run our gas-powered lawnmower. It drives me crazy! When I filled our yard with flamingos, to hide the fact that I had killed most perennials in huge flower beds. I need to find a way to mow the lawn instead of making my pink friends fly. It was delivered by noon and 1: 00 p. M. I'm in the yard. Three hours later, I cut it and trimmed almost everything I could find. Only once did I have to take off the bottom to get in touch with the rope. That's because I think I've run out. No, I just need to read the manual again. Once I realized how to extend the rope. I stepped back and ran. As I said, my dominant hand has nerve damage, so I can use something light enough to support, limited vibration, and extend to all my sheep with a 100-foot rope. Saved my relationship! Now, I can simply deal with that pesky turf patch. I talked about it for a week before I could do it under duress. Ha! I strongly recommend it to anyone who needs a lighter BUT.POWERFUL machine.

We upgraded from a battery-powered machine that was slowly running out. This is stronger. It has two nylon ropes coming out, about the size of an ordinary family pizza. I used his crocodile to make my 11-and-a-half-year-old change and put him on safe Google Glass.

March 2019-trimmed 35 million x 55 'yard weeds, who knows what kind of volunteers, some people have 1 "stems." The weeds trimmed for the first time are 2-3 'tall. The pruning is done in 30 minutes. After the second pruning for 2 weeks, the weeds grew 4 ". It takes less than ten minutes. Advantages:-Quick trim-automatic feed works well-easy to use with adjustable handle sliding handle Note:-14 specification extension line is not suitable to pass through the upper handle slot. The rope must be knotted around the handle and then inserted. It's no big deal. -10-15 minutes will be heavy. Use old belts to tie together to form a ring around the neck / shoulder. Attach an S-shaped hook (one end is enclosed in the belt and the other end is hooked to an adjustable handle). It's like a spell for a balanced trimmer.

I do my own yard work at my home and believe me this thing has power to spare. Excellent machine for the money. Also it is built like a tank which I really appreciate, but, heavy-duty also added weight. If your used to using a black and decker for light use in your yard, be advised you will find this jewel a bit on the heavy side. I am happy to have the extra weight, it is an excellent machine.

After reading the other comments, my concern is assembly. After receiving it and assembling it, there are only four screws, and all you need is a Phillips screwdriver and half a brain to know how to assemble it. Because you think "aggregation is difficult", giving fewer than five stars must require an incredible lack of intelligence. Ignore any such comments. Having said that, I haven't used it yet, it looks well built, sturdy, comfortable to hold, and is about to use it now, I will update my comments if I find any problems, but now, in the assembly / appearance / feel, I will give it a 5 star person who "just doesn't understand" (it's not a rocket science person).

This thing is terrible, it is so interesting to use! I have a fairly small yard, so I don't want to invest in any heavy tasks-I'm surprised that this little weed eater is tougher and stronger than I expected! You do need an extension cord to use it, which is a bit painful, but apart from that, it is super convenient and easy to use. I like that it has a button to start, and there is no need to tear the rope. It is light, easy to make (poor people have never used a weed-eating machine before buying it) and has some very good safety features. My neighbor is fascinated by this, haha! Knock out a star because you have to press and hold the button during the whole process of using the herbivore, which can be difficult if you have a large piece of uncontrollable grass to pass. In addition, I have to wind the extension cord around the handle in some way, or it will continue to pull the plug by itself.

September 2012-after reading many comments, I hesitated to buy this project. I started with the battery model Bedd pruning, and after 24 hours of charging, it worked for 15 minutes at the top. I returned the battery model and bought the electric baud model. I used it for the first time today and was able to do an hour of weeding and pruning. I'm excited. I am a 55-year-old woman and I find this trimmer easy to operate (except for the rope, but I don't mind if it lasts more than 15 minutes), lightweight and quite powerful. My yard is 70cm x125mm, and I can finish almost all the edges in more than an hour. I stopped because I needed to rest, not because the trimmer lost power.) I also used all the initial strings and had to rearrange the pruners with 0.065 strings. This is usually my biggest test, because I can never get the rope right. I followed all the instructions and reloaded the string and was able to trim it for another hour without failure. I hope and pray that this pruning will continue to work. I'll let you all know. April 2013-season 2-everything is great. Today is our first real spring in Richmond, Virginia-90 degrees-more like the transition from winter to summer than spring. Anyway, I pulled the old Baud electric trimmer I bought last year, and to my surprise, it worked like a champion. I walked slowly for more than an hour-this is my personal limit-everything was fine. I must say, it's a big bet.

I have been looking for a rugged straw trimmer that is electric but has a universal head. (I hate lever knobs because they never work long hours) I'm a woman, so it's important for me to have enough light-but sturdy equipment to do my sizeable size. This one meets the requirements!

I'm really impressed by this tool system. Shortly after unboxing, I was able to wack weeds, edge my lawn, and trim some hedges with the same tool. Replacing the tool heads and removing/adjusting the telescopic pole was very easy. I was able to convert the hedge trimmer to the pole trimmer in seconds. My only complaint is that the hedge trimmer head is fairly heavy. When using it in the pole trimmer mode, it can be very hard to lift and maneuver, even for a young man like myself.I haven't found a use for the cultivator, yet, and I'm really looking for a reason to buy the chainsaw attachment. I hope SunJoe releases other tool heads in the future, like a lawn aerator or dethatcher. Overall, for the price this is a huge value and I'm very pleased with my purchase.

My original box contains what I think are all the original documents. It does well in my overgrown yard, but it does get stuck in a quagmire if I'm in a hurry. My front handle was not locked in place and looked good, but it slipped after about 5 minutes of use. It's annoying, but I'll fix it with a zipper tie. The automatic feed head works surprisingly well, but it can't keep too many lines at all. I suggest using your pruning tools to buy extra.

Best Electric String Trimmers Buying Guide

Henry Colon
Share post:

Electric string trimmers are tools that have become very popular in all kinds of gardens or agricultural land. They are a great help when trimming or making the grass, bushes, shrubs, and others disappear from your gardens or fields.

To succeed in the acquisition, it is important to know the degree of use to which you will submit it. The range of electric string cutters in the market is quite wide and there are many features and powers.

For this reason, we will help you with a guide so that you know the most interesting ones at the moment and so you can assess which one is the one that responds most to your needs.

We know perfectly well about the many models and criteria that it is necessary to know before betting on the acquisition of one or another electric string trimmer. Therefore, we select some of the most important to consider. We hope you find them useful and help you make the final decision. Read on!


The string trimmer differs from many other tools in that many models are self-supporting. The operator takes them directly on the body connected with a harness that makes it possible to move and perform the operations correctly.

It is of great importance that it is an ergonomic model for better use for a better adaptation to the characteristics of the electric string trimmer. There are elements such as the handlebar and the arm of the cut – or that has a second harness in the machines of greater weight that can be fundamental for your comfort.


The weight of the machine is worth considering when choosing an electric string cutter. The most powerful machines are usually the heaviest. For example, string cutter that run on fuel have a heavier engine, but they also have to be loaded with fuel. So, it is always better to buy an electric product.

If the work is not too large or demanding, both for the question of the cost of the string cutter and for practical reasons, buy a model adapted to what you need. If you acquire a very powerful one, it will be more complicated to handle and heavier, which will hinder your work.

Trimmers and their assembly

The electric string trimmers cut thanks to the high-speed rotation of a cutting element, which can be a common cutting disc made of metal. A thread that is also located in the cutting area and that adapts to the different types of grass or brush.

The assembly of the elements is simple to perform. Whenever possible, it is best done without the need to use tools, although giving guarantees that the grip of the disc or the thread is optimal and the cutting power is maintained. The more practical and simple the process, the less chance of failures.

It is always best to rely on important brands because they not only have superior component quality. Their guarantee is also greater and they have the technology of a solid brand.
