Written by Venus Low. Published 13/05/2023

What is a Strimmer used for?

If you're someone who enjoys gardening or maintaining your lawn, then you know how important it is to have the right tools for the job. A strimmer, also known as a string trimmer or weed whacker, is a versatile tool that can help you cut down and shape grass, weeds, and other vegetation with ease. But with so many different types and models on the market, it can be difficult to know which one to choose.

What to consider when buying a new strimmer?

Key factors to consider when shopping for a strimmer:

  • Size and type of area you'll be working with: Small garden or large lawn requiring regular maintenance?
  • Power source and type of strimmer: Will you be using it for light trimming or heavy-duty work?
  • Budget and any additional features you might need: e.g. adjustable handles or different cutting attachments.
