What to Look For in Gas String Trimmers?
Gas-powered string trimmers are usually heavy, but they can run for a long time on single tank of gas. The advantage of using a gas string trimmer over an electric one is the power it has to cut through tough weeds and thick grasses. You can also use these machines in places that have no electrical supply or where you will not be able to plug your equipment into an outlet (for example when working around pools).
The engine type: Some options are two stroke, four-stroke, straight shaft vs. curved shaft; handlebar length; shoulder strap vs. no shoulder strap; automatic feeding line dispenser and other convenience features like height adjustment capability.
Cutting Path: The cutting path is the area that gets cut by the weed eater – 10″, 12″ or 14″. Longer cutting paths cover larger areas faster but are harder to maneuver around objects in your yard while you’re using them.
Durability: How sturdy it feels and how well it will hold up with regular use over time. Some machines have metal parts that withstand abuse while others are cheaply made with plastic and break easily when dropped or if something hits them.
Portability: How heavy is the weed eater? Does it come in a smaller size to fit people of different heights? Is it easy to lift into your car trunk, can you carry it up stairs or does an extension cord impede its usability?
Noise level: How loud is the weed eater? Will it be a problem around your neighbors or in residential areas with strict noise ordinances?
