21 Best String Trimmers Feature Image
Since in the gardens you find walls, fences, sidewalks, and other elements, it is usual that if you want to maintain a good cut, you have to resort to the string trimmers. With them, you can finish off the work. These models must be efficient, agile, and have good power, both in gasoline and electric formats.

The trimmers are garden tools that allow you to get a beautiful finish on the edges of the lawn and along roads, walls, and trees.

Purchased to replace a gas trimmer so I exchanged one inconvenience (gas and unreliable small motor startup) for another (150 ft of extension cord) for another and wasn't ready for a battery operated unit. The BESTA510 assembles easily, super light compared to the previous gas trimmer and still develops plenty of power to cut grass and weeds but don't expect to use it on thick tall vegetation and saplings.

On the downside the auto string feed is ridiculous. The string advances by centrifugal clutch for each press of the trigger and several reviewers confirm that it uses lots of string. YT videos show how to easily defeat the auto advance clutch and then its easy to manually advance the string.

I might also wind 0. 08 bulk string instead of the 0. 065 string when it runs out.

The trimmer works great! Light weight compared to gas trimer also much easier to start just press the trigger. It does have a safety that has to be depressed and it is in somewhat of bad location. Also you have to keep pressing the safety to keep it running.

The battery has I think a short life span and needs to be recharge often depending on the size of area one is working. The good news is the battery charge fast! This is a self-feed stringer, no bumping to increase string.

Just stop and start the unit to increase string. This is a great trimer say for the home owner but not for commercial. I have tried this unit on some tough weed and it seems to handle the job but I would use a gas trimmer job for such weeds.

I wanted a weed eater that was light-weight and easy to use. Just charge the battery and plug it in. Push the button and pull the trigger. Couldn't be easier to use. I need to trim along my yard edgers, and the guide made that so easy.

Have never used a weed eater that was this easy to use and does a great job. Of course, it has a small battery with a pretty short life, but it works for my needs.

I wanted to wait after a few uses. I think I've used it about 9-10 times now. So glad we got this. It is really light and makes trimming and edging seem almost fun now. Thinking back to my corded trimmer and always having to manually feed the line because the autofeed never worked right.

The autofeed works on this almost flawlessly. I've only had to open the cap with the line twice. Once because I didn't autofeed in time and the line was no longer sticking out then the 2nd time was to swap it out.

I just bought the 6 pack of line here on amazon because it was basically the same price.Durability and use. After reading the reviews and how hard it was to snap into place I confirmed it was, but I read some and the materials they use are very durable.

I think I read it on their homepage that the plastic used was the same plastic on helmets, so I think it will last a long time. I only have about a 1/4 acre of a yard. The first use was not under easy conditions because it rained a lot and things were getting a little tall.

This has been one of my favorite purchases from Amazon. I already had a Black & Decker cordless lawn mower that uses the same 40 volt battery, so I was pretty confident that these tools would perform well since they use the same battery.

I have not been disappointed! Even if they were only average, this multipack is an incredible value for 2 cordless power tools, the battery, and the charging stand - take a look at the individual costs! And they do perform very well.

They also have a good feel or heft to them, lightweight but not cheap feeling. This is my first cordless trimmer / edger and I was more than satisfied with the available power. The trigger switch does allow you to rev the power up faster if you get into something tough, but I found it cut through tall grass and weeds easily and edged along my sidewalks and curb neatly.

The unit works great once I replaced the trimmer line that came with it. I'm using RINO-TUFF . 065" Universal Trimmer Line I picked up at Home Depot. The problem with the supplied line is it was fused together in multiple places on the spool (it's like it was wound on the spool before the it cooled - basically a manufacturing defect) so there are a bunch of places where it gets stuck and can't feed off the spool.

Making things worse is even if you unwind the entire line and then rewind the entire spool in an attempt to fix this problem, the places where the line was fused to an adjacent winding are weakened so they just break way too easily.

So I just pitched the line that came with it and instead used the RINO-TUFF line which I already had for use on my previous trimmer that finally died after decades of use. The result is the trimmer works perfect now.

I used this Black & Decker LST136W 40V Max Lithium String Trimmer for a while before deciding to upgrade to the DEWALT DCST990H1 Max XR String Trimmer . Here is a comparison of the two without taking price into account.

POWER-Dewalt is a beast of a trimmer. It is able to power through thick blackberry vines and densely-packed, tall, reedy grasses. B&D doesn't have the power to easily mow down heavy thick brush but works very well for lawn grasses and moderate weeds.

ERGONOMICS-Dewalt is difficult to control due to its length and enormous battery pack. You really need a lot of arm and core body strength to be able to use this tool in a controlled manner. B&D is lightweight, well-balanced and easy to use for anybody.

PRECISION-Dewalt is so big and tough to control that you won't have much accuracy with your trimming. It's made to destroy everything in sight. B&D allows you to make much more precise cuts which is good if you are working around small trees, vegetable bushes, or flowers.

The product is a little pricey,but is so convenient not having to measure,cut & wind the line. The MOST IMPORTANT point is the line feeds out properly. So it will cost you a little more than winding the spool yourself but the benefits are worth it in my opinion.

You will also have a loaded spool ready to pop in when needed. Even better is it ships to your doorstep in days using amazon prime.

Well, one could argue "Why should the original trimmer head only last me a year?"However, when you look at the abuse it takes trying to get your next few inches of string out of it (and who knows how the rest of the family use it) then it is understable why the need to replace certain parts from time to time.

All that being said, I got it within two days, it was very reasonably priced, and was incredibly easy to put on. I was using the trimmer again within minutes, and that's what is important!!

Ok I'm giving this 4 stars for one reason only. I got this weedeater and it fired right up. I allowed it to warm up and started cutting. Right out of the box it bogs down when accelerating. I had to give a little gas and give a little more till it was full speed.

Now for me this wasn't a huge problem I adjusted the carb screws with a spline carb tool took 2 mins to do. But that is not something the mass population would have lying around and even know how to do.

For 200 bucks this thing should be ready to go right out of the box. Now once I adjusted it, it worked great. Cut strong and never bogged down again. I would reccomend this weedeater but be prepared to adjust carb.

I am giving 4 stars because for me it was not an issuse but I can deffinetly see where it would be for the mass population.

Great bargain !This trimmer has the flex shaft which apparently for storage and of course shipping. The auto-wind feature is not on this trimmer , nevertheless rewinding the spool is still quite easy, just a few twists will do. Both units run relatively quiet as compared to their respective gas counterparts, which is a big plus.

The 56V battery is only 2.1 Ah. I suggest purchasing a spare or a higher capacity battery. Note, comparison tests of other trimmers has the EGO at or near the top. Very satisfied with this combo.

When I read the initial reviews of this set, I wondered if I'd be making a wise purchase. It turned out to be one of our best decisions ever for taking care of our 60' x 60' yard. This equipment is MUCH lighter (which might lead some people to think they're not well-made), Even my husband was dubious when he first took the tools out of the box.

His first comment was "are these toys???" Some of the reviews suggest that the leaf-blower is weak. I suppose if you intend to use it as a professional landscaping tool or if you have a lot of trees that drop mounds of Autumn leaves it would not be a good choice for those uses.

However, it is perfect for cleaning up after mowing and trimming. We have a large porch and our driveway is wide behind our house. This blower cleans them quickly and perfectly - not a grass clipping, chunk of dry dirt, or small stone in sight.

I have purchased three of these 40v B&D trimmers since 2016. They are magnificent beasts for trimming grass; taking down thick, stemmy weeds is asking them to "punch above their weight class". The previous two machinesfailed exactly the same way, and I cannot really fault the trimmer.

Using these to cut thorn bushes results in severe impacts to the plastic bearing that the cutting head revolves on.The bearing fails. RIP, champs, my bad. If one restrains ones' enthusiasm for whacking weeds to cutting the grass only, this machine is hard to beat.

The motor is burly enough to handle 40 Volt battery without strain or overheating. The batteries are robust andare can be used with other B&D tools. [I swap 3 batteries between the trimmer and the 12-inch chainsaw] The "power" [rpm] is smoothly adjustable, and even at max power [6] I can tear up the tall grass for about 15-20 minutes, and swap out battery if necessary.

This trimmer is awesome. I use to have a black and decker 18v trimmer years ago until the batteries died. I figured it was time to get a real trimmer. So I bought a craftsman, 4 cycle, fancy attachment capable, few hundred dollar trimmer.

I liked that one for about the first year and then I hated it. It was huge, heavy and way too problematic. It just seemed like I was always fixing the damn thing. I kept putting up with it mostly because of the money I spent on it.

Well this spring I got out the craftsman trimmer and sure enough the pull start mechanism breaks on the first pull.That was it! I went on amazon found the worx revolution for a great price and didn't even hesitate.

Now as far as some of the negative reviews of this and other models I really don't understand why some people feel they must compare the worx to a commercial gas trimmer and then leave a negative review. Unless it's defective, that's another story.

I have the Ego Powerload carbon fiber string trimmer. It is quite heavy and long to use for a petite woman compared to what I've used in the past (Black & Decker cordless & corded string trimmers). The Ego trimmer is othereise great and this strap should've came with it (especially since this is one of the top of the line cordless trimmers on the market).

I used it today for the first time and I could definitely feel a difference with using the strap versus without. It helps distribute the weight of the trimmer to your torso so it's not all in the hands and arms.

I didn't feel as fatigued this time. I just wished the strap and clip could swivel (like on a duffel/ luggage bag). This one is better than a universal strap because of the bracket that screws onto the shaft. The Ego one perfectly fits and I don't have to worry about it scratching it damaging the shaft (the universal strap bracket is not round and looks like the screw would scratch & damage the shaft).

Long story short, I bought a Greenworks 20-Inch 40V Mower, is ok'ish, you can read my review here: attempting to mow my lawn with the above mentioned mower 4 times and only being able to complete the job with the included batteries once, I decided I needed an additional battery.

Since my current gas powered trimmer is dying, I decided to buy this trimmer and kill two birds with one stone. The trimmer is awesome. Used twice already, and I can do the perimeter of the house using about 50% of the battery, maybe even less, which leaves me enough juice to complete the mowing.

The auto-feed works like a charm. The main complaint I can see someone having is that the shaft is of a fixed length, thus someone shorter may have an issue with it. For me thought, it works great and I can't complaint about that.

I use this to trim behind a (gas) push mower. It's a far better trimmer than the single-speed, single-line Black & Decker it replaced. After half a season of practice I could quickly and cleanly edge my driveway and trim around trees, downspouts and posts.

As other have noted the stock line cuts well and lasts a long time. The trimmer also works well with 0.080" round line. Although it has a pro-style head and shaft, the cutting path is small and power is comparable to a 5-amp corded trimmer at best.

While the small circle makes easy to trim inside corners, mowing a ditch or embankment would be tedious. It cuts through brown stalks up to 1/8" in diameter and green stalks up to 3/16", fine for a manicured yard but any gas or large battery trimmer will do better.

Toward the end of this season I purchased a 9. 0Ah Flexvolt battery for my larger 20V Max tools including this trimmer. The big battery dramatically improved this trimmer's weight balance - it's almost perfectly neutral front-to-back when the forward handle is set for a 6' tall operator.

I spent a considerable amount of time researching yard trimmers. Initially I had no intention of purchasing a battery-operated tool, because we have a large yard and I didn't want the battery to die before I finished the job. What I love about this trimmer is that the battery is inter-changeable with other Black & Decker tools.

We already have a B&D drill with its own battery and charger, so I am able to keep one of the batteries in a charger all of the time and have a fresh one when I need it. (This trimmer also comes with its own battery and charger).

The instruction manual also states that the battery can be left in the charger indefinitely without any risk to the battery or surrounding area. I took a star off this trimmer because the battery takes a VERY long time to charge when empty.

After about a week and a half of researching electric yard tools I decided to give the Greenworks line a try. Started with this bundle because of cost and immediate need. Due to the constant rain we have the last several weeks yard was overrun with weeds and debris on my sidewalks and drive way.

Spent an hour Saturday weedeating and blowing with no issues at all. Battery lasted the entire time switching between the weed eater and the blower. I was so impressed that I decided to purchase the 8 pole saw. Once again used it for about 1/2 hour of work, switched battery out and spent another 15 minutes weed eating.

Just received my 4th item in this line (extended reach hedge trimmer) hurried up and used it for about 5 minutes just to test it out. It worked great as well. I have ordered a second battery but for my 1 acre yard.

First I would like to say I'm a little "old school" when it comes to lawn and power tools. I find most add-on gadgets to be more of a pain than an improvement. I was pleasantly surprised with this. It took just a couple of minutes to get everything together.

Very easy to attach to trimmer. Biggest thing is taking the time to balance the trimmer right. Do not get me wrong, it works and is comfortable no matter how you put it on. But with a little patience you can literally have it hanging from your shoulder where all you have to do is a slight swing of your arm to get a nice even trim.

I have A LOT of trimming to do. In the past I would take a minimum of two to three breaks. The only time I stop when I wear this is to tend to something else; never over fatigue. It also has a what they call a "bungee cord". It's really not so much of a bungee affect as it a vibration tampering affect.

I have a Greenworks G-Max 40 volt 14 inch string trimmer that accepts attachments but Greenworks don't sell a brushcutter. This Trimmer Plus attachment fits perfectly and is a quick and easy installation on my string trimmer. This works really well on any type of woody stemmed weeds and small trees that are too much for the string trimmer head to handle.

My string trimmer already has a handle and shoulder strap but they are included if you need them. Depending on your useage and expectations, the type of blade on this brushcutter may have some advantages over other types of blades.

Since it isn't sharp like a saw blade or chainsaw, it doesn't require maintenance or sharpening. The 4 tip style of blade on this brushcutter won't replace a chainsaw but it is a perfect tool to bridge the gap between the string trimmer and a saw.

String Trimmers Buying Guide

Henry Colon

It is no secret to anyone that gardening services have been put through the clouds, every day they are more expensive and do not always do the job correctly. Many times, we think about doing the work ourselves, we just don’t have the necessary tools.

To enter the world of gardening, the most important thing is to have a good string trimmer, not only that it is functional but also economic. If you are looking for a new string trimmer, but you are living your life seeing different models and brands, pay attention to this guide to buy the best trimmer in the current market.

Our goal is to help you know the basic characteristics that should be taken into account when selecting a trimmer so that you can feel calmer knowing that you are acquiring a good product and that your investment will pay off.

Type of trimmer

Electric cable cutters have high power with the advantage of being much friendlier to the environment. With these trimmers, you can trim the grass and even the high weeds. There are also wireless trimmers that work with a battery. The advantage is in sight because you can move it from here to there without the cable tie. However, this type of trimmer has not yet been developed with enough power.

The straight or curved shaft

The trimmers have a shaft that can be curved or straight. The straight axis has a greater reach and is ideal for cutting grass in difficult places like under bushes. The curved shaft, meanwhile, has the advantage of being lighter and, therefore, easier to manipulate for beginners of gardening.

Cutting mode

It is recommended that the reel has two cutting lines. We refer to the thread that carries the reel and that finally works as a leaflet while turning to cut the grass. Some trimmers only have one line, therefore, try to choose one that has two, so you can use it to cut tall weeds.

Motor position

You may have noticed that traditional gasoline-based string trimmers have the engine at the top. This is an advantage of balance and mobility, so it is recommended to buy one with this design if it is an electric cutter with cable. Try to avoid the trimmer with the motor near the cutting head.

Finally, even if it seems the most basic, make sure the switch to turn the trimmer on and off is easily accessible. If possible, choose one that has the switch on the same handle where you grab it for more control.
