Grass trimmers and brushcutters are commonly referred to as the same thing, however they are slightly different! Our Buyers Guide can point you in the right direction.
Typically designed for small, domestic gardens, electric grass trimmers plug into your homes electricity supply. They are lighter than petrol and battery grass trimmer, but do not offer the same power or performance as a petrol grass trimmer or brushcutter.
Battery Grass Trimmers and Brushcutters
Battery or cordless grass trimmers are better for larger gardens, allowing you to move further from the house or power source. However, you must consider things such as…will you manage to cut the whole garden before the battery runs out? The best battery grass trimmers will have a fast charge time. Lithium ion powered battery grass trimmers re-charge the quickest and are the best battery grass trimmers you can buy. Lithium ion is also the most powerful battery on the market today, but also is the only battery that does not decrease its power output as the charge runs out. That means you have the same power and performance from your grass trimmer, right up until the battery is fully empty.
Brushcutters or grass trimmers that are termed as split shaft (they come apart) tend to allow a range of additional attachments to be added to the product. This helps make them into a variety of other tools like a hedge trimmer, pole saw or even a cultivator. These combi trimmers are ideal, as it means that one tool designed to cut the grass can be turned into a whole range of tools that can take care of your entire garden no matter what the season is.
