A person who personally mows his or her lawn finds great satisfaction to see a nicely trimmed or edged lawn. However, mowing is not enough to make your lawn look special, but you have to edge or trim it to make it look special. To turn your lawn into something special and beautiful to look at, all you need is a lawn edger or trimmer.
There are some features that you should look for in a lawn edger/trimmer.
One is you would want an edger/trimmer that will start easily with just 1 or 2 pulls of the cord.
Why People Think Equipment Are A Good Idea
Another feature to look out for in a lawn edger/trimmer is if it is a gas powered push type since this kind will give you speed, convenience and quality of cut that other edgers like pole and electric cannot provide.
A 10-Point Plan for Equipment (Without Being Overwhelmed)
Another feature that you should look for in your lawn edger/trimmer is if it has enough torque and horsepower to perform the job. Generally, the right edger/trimmer should have a 4.75 torque and 3.5 horsepower motor to cover the yard.
A blade disengagement capability is one safety feature that you should look for in your lawn edger/trimmer. This capability will allow you to disengage the cutter blade of the edger from turning, thus providing safety to the user of the edger.
The next feature that you will want for your edger/trimmer is that if it can maintain balance when used on curbs, uneven grounds and so on. Be informed that an edger with four wheels usually gives you better balance than an edger with just three wheels.
An edger/trimmer that will give you a neat, sharp, clean-looking grass cut along your driveway, sidewalks, flowerbeds, etc should be what you will buy.
Look for an edger/trimmer that allows you to conveniently and quickly replace the edger blade when it is worn down and has to be replaced.
Since safety is very important for you, buy an edger/trimmer that has protection to the user like an edger blade guard, or a rear edger/trimmer debris protector.
Bear in mind when you buy your edger/trimmer that it should allow you to switch it from one job back to the other job with less effort.
Since an edger/trimmer is available in the market as gas powered and electric, it is suggested that you buy according to your own requirements or needs.
The two types of edger/trimmer have of course their differences, disadvantages and advantages, and your choice will depend on your requirements. In an electric edger, there are two models and these are the battery operated edger and the AC powered edger, while in a gas edgers, models come in a four-cycle engine and a two-cycle engine.
