There is a vast choice of strimmers on the market and it can be difficult to know which is the best one for you. This article is here to help :-)

So what are the different types of strimmer?

Electric Strimmers - these are powered by mains electricity and therefore have long cables, they can therefore be a a good choice for smaller gardens. While they are relatively inexpensive, the cable means that you are restricted by your power source which can cause problems in larger gardens. We would also recommend that a cut off socket is always used.

Cordless Strimmers - these are usually more expensive than electric models, but allow more flexibility. As they are battery powered they can only be used for a limited time and therefore they are mainly recommended for medium sized gardens (most cordless strimmers will give around 20 minutes of run time).

Petrol strimmers - these are the most expensive type of strimmer. Petrol strimmers, also known as brushcutters, are best for cutting down large areas of long grass and weeds. Petrol strimmers are the most effective mobile option and are best for large gardens that can’t be tackled in one go with a cordless electric trimmer. All you need is a can of petrol and you can work for hours at a time, unlike with cordless electric models which need recharging regularly.
