Choosing the best Grass String Trimmer

Is trimming grass and weeds getting the best of dad? Do you feel like you’re living with a little lawn of horrors?  Let’s face it there are always sections that a lawn mower cannot get to, regardless of the size of the lawn. For this reason, a grass string trimmer also known as weed whacker and weed eater grass trimmer is a good investment for dad. Lowe’s offers a wide variety of trimmers to help keep dad  in control.  With so many grass string trimmers on the market, which one do you choose?

Gas trimmers are the most powerful string trimmers on the market.  They are great for thick grasses, rubbery vines or persistent plants. One nice feature of a gas string trimmer apposed to an electric one is there is no power cord to deal with.

There are a lot of brands to choose from on the market when it comes to string trimmers. I have used numerous brands of weed trimmers in my days, but  Husqvarna has me wondering why I didn’t choose them sooner.  When it comes to  outdoor equipment Husqvarna is the global leader. There is no bigger and trusted brand in lawn care products than Lowes item #289910.

The Husqvarna Multi Purpose Trimmer 128LDx is a lightweight multi purpose trimmer ideal for homeowners. The trimmer is extremely easy to start with it’s quick start coil system and patented Smart Start engine design that it reduces 40% less resistance on the starter cord then the competitions.

Setting up the Husqvarna trimmer was a breeze, as I simply only had to attach the trimmer arm to the main detachable shaft and place the ergonomic handle on the shaft in a position that best fits my height. Husqvarna also includes the synthetic oil and a pre-twined Tap’n Go trimmer head, so you can get to work with your new Multi Trimmer right away.

Within 10 minutes I was ready to head outside and get started. Our whole property is surrounded by a fence, trees and three very large flower beds, so a trimmer is definitely a must have for our home.
