After mowing your lawn, there will invariably be unmowed grass around the edges of the garden, in narrow spaces, around bushes and trees and more. All places where a lawnmower cannot normally reach. To keep these areas as neat and tidy as the rest of the grass, you are going to want to use a strimmer with a nylon line cutting head.
If you’re looking for unparalleled power and performance, a petrol strimmer is the way to go. These are suitable for both domestic garden use and more demanding professional jobs. We stock a range of petrol strimmers which includes some of the best and most recognised brands in the world.
Alternatively, you might want to take a look at our range of electric strimmers, which might be better suited to you and your garden. On top of being naturally quieter than petrol machines, these corded strimmers also offer a plethora of desirable advantages: they do not require yearly servicing, do not produce harmful petrol fumes, and are far lighter and more manoeuvrable.
In recent years, great strides have been made in the pursuit of cleaner, more renewable energy; advanced lithium-ion batteries rival the combustion engines that we have relied on for hundreds of years. Strimmers have not been left out of this latest technological revolution, so you may want to peruse our range of battery-operated strimmers today. These machines are getting more advanced every year, rivalling their conventional petrol cousins in terms of performance, while guaranteeing your safety against harmful fumes.
Alternatively, for larger areas and thick grass, scrub and undergrowth, a brushcutter is the more appropriate tool. Their straight shaft allows them to be fitted with a metal blade in place of the usual nylon line, allowing for much greater cutting potential, but this also means they are only available with petrol engines.
