Best Grass Trimmer Buys

Whether you're a gardening expert or a beginner, a quick and easy way to make your lawn look special is to trim the edges with a grass strimmer. There's a huge number on the market so read on to find out which one’s right for your needs. Here at Gardenlines we’ve put together our guide to the best strimmer buys based on user reviews and popularity.

Petrol Trimmers

Petrol trimmers are arguably the most popular type of strimmer. Petrol trimmers are suited to both domestic and professional use. They have a large range and are not tied to a power source. Here are a couple of our most popular petrol trimmers:

Webb BC26 26cc Petrol Brushcutter

Webb BC26 26cc Petrol BrushcutterA versatile machine that comes with both a metal blade for heavy duty brush cutting and nylon line for grass trimming, this is a really handy multi purpose tool suitable for all sorts of garden jobs.  

McCulloch TrimMac Petrol Grass Trimmer 25cc  

McCulloch TrimMac Petrol Grass Trimmer - 25ccThis model offers great value for money backed by a trusted gardening machinery brand. At only 3.6kg a very light machine with a tap'n'go head.  


Electric Trimmers

Electric trimmers are a great choice if you do not like the fumes and mess of a petrol trimmer and suit smaller gardens. They are easy to start and as most are made mainly of toughened plastic they are lighter than petrol trimmers. Electric trimmers have the same power as petrol trimmers so you don’t lose out on any cutting capability. Our customers like these electric trimmers:

WEBB ELT450 Electric Line Trimmer and Edger 

WEBB ELT450 Electric Line Trimmer and EdgerThis is one of our lightest models but still has the power to get the job done with a 450W motor. The head of the Webb ELT450 can be rotated through 90o so the trimmer can be used to edge your lawn and boarders.  

Flymo Contour 650E Electric Grass Trimmer

Flymo Contour 600HD Electric StrimmerThis electric trimmer is another top buy. It is a low cost option but still provides great performance. This trimmer is particularly lightweight which is good when you need to get at those hard to reach areas.  


Cordless Trimmers

Cordless trimmers are a good choice if you are working away from a power source as they use a rechargeable battery. Our customers have been impressed with the length of the charge life on cordless trimmers. Also, some people have commented on how useful a cordless trimmer is on an allotment where often there is no electricity supply. Another pro of a cordless trimmer is they are lightweight and easy to handle. Here are a couple of our most popular models:

EGO Power Plus String Trimmer EGST1210E

EGO Power Plus String Trimmer EGST1200EWith the latest battery technology the EGO Power Plus String Trimmer can run for up to 35 minutes on one charge of the 2.0Ah battery. With the convenience of the interchangebale battery system of the EGO range  


Greenworks G-MAX 40V String Trimmer

Greenworks G-MAX 40V String TrimmerThis light weight machine is ideal for small gardens. 90 degree rotating head with edging wheel for walk behind edging for versatile use.  


Trimmer Accessories

Once you have picked your strimmer do not forget the extras like safety goggles, ear defenders, replacement strimmer lines and a harness (if one is not supplied). Try our Handy Trimmer Safety Kit which includes a visor, ear muffs and sturdy gloves to make sure you are safe while on the job. As with any garden machinery, Gardenlines recommend you read and adhere to the manufacturer’s instructions.
