Choosing the Best Weed Eater

Aug 17, 2007
One of the great time saving devices for trimming a lawn is a weed eater. A weed whacker can mow down a large patch of weeds and grass in no time, leaving you with more time to do more productive things. Weed eaters all basically have the same design but they do come in different sizes and power ranges.

You will also see a variety of power sources for different weed eaters, from the old traditional electric weed eater that uses an extension cord to the more powerful gas powered models and now days you can also buy battery powered models that set you free from extension cord hell.

So what do you look for when it comes to buying a new weed eater? Well it depends on what how big your yard is, how many weeds and edge trimming you need to do and how much you want to spend. You don't want one that's too small and can't handle the job but if you have a small yard you probably don't need a gas powered behemoth either. You do want to make sure the weed eater you choose has the power to do the job you want.

Weeds can be notoriously stubborn and you want a weed whacker that easily powers through the thickest of weed stems. When choosing a weed eater you want to get the most power for the amount of money you have to spend.

When it comes choosing a new weed eater price is of course going to be the deciding factor as to which brand and model you ultimately purchase. If you have plenty of money then the choices you have are unlimited. Of course if price is no factor for someone they probably have someone else taking care of the lawn. Be realistic about what you can afford and get the most weed whacking power for you buck.

The final consideration before you plop down your hard earned cash is the size of your new weed eater. Most home improvement stores have demo models on display. Try them all on for size. You don't want one that's too heavy or awkward to use. Try to find a model that's adjustable as that will give you the best fit and comfort level. If you're going to be spending the better part of the day whacking weeds you want to be as comfortable as possible.

Weigh all three factors equally and when you make your purchase you will have a weed eater that is the perfect size with the right amount of power for the right price.
