Choosing the Best Grass Trimmer for Your Needs

If you are one of those people who still rely on rudimentary tools to maintain your garden, you are probably wasting a lot of time and effort. Nowadays, there are various products such as grass trimmers available in the market that can assist you in getting rid of weeds and tidying up your lawn.

What is a Grass Trimmer?

A glass trimmer is a lightweight power tool that can be used to get rid of weeds, and trim the grass to give your lawn a finishing touch that creates the look of a professionally groomed landscape. Grass trimmers offer some innovative features that can eliminate the tedious tasks of hand-clipping in hard to reach areas and transform your yard easily.

Selecting the Best Grass Trimmer

If you are planning to invest in a good tool for your garden, STIHL offers a variety of products for every need. While choosing a grass trimmer one of the main factors to be considered is if you are looking for a product that will help you clear out brambles and hardy weeds, or are you interested in thinning overgrown areas.

Grass trimmers are specifically designed to tackle the tasks of everyday lawn maintenance and occasional weed whacking. There are two types of grass trimmers namely battery operated and those that run on fuel.

Battery Operated Trimmers: These trimmers are a good low maintenance option that can be used for small to large -sized gardens. Cordless trimmers help in easy maneuvering as compared to corded trimmers as they can reach every corner of the property.

STIHL’s cordless battery trimmers are powered by a lithium-ion technology that provides the required power without any exhaust fumes or noise. Some of the widely used range of these products are:

FSA 45 Lithium-Ion Grass Trimmer: This trimmer is suitable for smaller lawns and can easily transform into a lawn edger, so you do not need additional tools to achieve perfect edges. We would recommend for a smaller town house that would only require a machine to tidy up the perimeter after mowing the lawn.

FSA 56 Battery-Powered Grass Trimmer: This lightweight trimmer can be used for medium-sized lawns and the battery is interchangeable with some of the blowers, lawnmowers, chainsaws, and hedge trimmers offered by STIHL.

FSA 65 FSA 85 and FSA 90 Battery-Powered Grass Trimmer: These products are suitable for grooming longer and thicker grass. Similar to the FSA 56 trimmer, its battery is interchangeable with about 25 products in the STIHL PRO wireless system.

FSA130R/FAS135 PRO Battery-Powered Grass Trimmer: These are Stihl’s pro battery powered grass trimmers suitable for the contractor or heavier duty needs of a operator that require power that is hard to believe.
