String Trimmer Reviews & Edgers

You really can’t do lawn care without a good string trimmer. We focus our string trimmer reviews on cut quality, cutting speed, features, and more. For battery-powered models, run-time is a huge consideration, and string capacity plays a role as well. Comparative reviews like our best battery powered string trimmer roundup, make for our favorite testing methods. String trimmers start with handheld tools (gas powered or battery powered) used for walking and trimming small areas of grass. Battery-powered models have begun to really compete well with gas models for straight trimming jobs. Going up in scale, we also cover wheeled push models suitable for larger areas. These use larger and wider string to cut more grass at once. String Trimmer Reviews Professionals look to our string trimmer reviews to see if battery powered models can compete with gas. We also make sure to address run-time and durability issues. Our string trimmer reviews test cutting power and capacity, features, usability, and more.
