Walk Behind Trimmers
Keeping on top of weeds and brush in your garden can be a seemingly unending task that weighs on your garden’s beauty and can leave your muscles aching. By using a walk-behind trimmer, you can avoid the time and effort it takes to keep those pesky weeds and brush in line. Not only that, but you can gain additional cutting power and dexterity that a standard lawn mower or pair of garden shears just can’t compete with. With both electric and gas options to choose from, a walk behind trimmer makes garden upkeep easier than ever before.
Walk behind trimmers offer significantly more cutting power than a standard weed whacker. While there are walk behind trimmers that use a string to lash down weeds and tall grass, you have the option of a model that uses a rotating blade for much stronger and definitive cutting. You can use a walk behind trimmer to cut small sections of lawn though we do recommend using an actual mower for larger areas. The great thing about walk behind trimmers is that they are much easier to use and actually safer than weed whackers or handheld string trimmers. Walk behind trimmers stay firmly on the ground as you push them along, meaning that you are nowhere near the spinning blade or strings while they are in operation, many feature rear-facing guards to shield you from debris. They work very similarly to push lawn mowers and allow you to trim, cut, and maintain your garden simply by walking and pushing the trimmer along on two large and easy to maneuver wheels.
Many regard gas-powered trimmers to be the best as engines of various CC ratings power these. This engine power provides consistent and strong cutting power while giving users a choice of strength. Some electric trimmers have been known to lose some of their cutting power towards the end of their battery, or are restricted by their power cable.
Whichever type of walk behind trimmer you decide to use, PPE for your feet is highly recommended to keep yourself safe. Also, you should never try to force your walk behind trimmer over uneven terrain or up hills, as this may risk damage to your trimmer or injury to yourself.
