9 Best Electric Trimmers (2017)

We have a plot in the country of 8 acres, I specially took the Kruger trimmer to mow grass on it. He did not expect that he also removes bushes and young trees, if instead of a fishing line, a special victory knife is used. It is convenient to work, there is a shoulder strap, so the hands are not particularly stressed. The handle is adjustable, you can adjust it according to your height, so that it is even more convenient to mow the grass. I am completely satisfied with the acquisition of the Kruger trimmer.

I use the second season in full. Once a week or two on a plot of 7 acres. To cut the lawn. A good option, but for neglected areas with thick rough grass, it will not work. Heavy raw grass is given to the trimmer heavily, it is necessary to pass one place several times.

Makita UR3501

A plot of 20 acres, I mowed (a girl weighing 55 kg) 10 acres of grass ankle-high. The mower is very light, so as not to drag it on your hands and not get tired, you just need to center the belt so that the mower simply hangs as it should, then there is no weight on your hands at all.

Huter GET-1500SL

Power is such that I did not notice the need to put a knife. And grass and mugs and young raspberries, all fishing line can be chopped. Maybe its consumption will be big.

Makita UR3000

Video review

Perfectly cuts not only any grass, but also young shoots of raspberries, cherries and other things. On solid woody shoots, fishing line breakage is possible, which is easily solved by the regular method of its release when the trimmer is operating at maximum speed. I do not see a flaw in this, still a fishing line. this is a consumable item, you just need to worry in advance in its purchase.

  • Good build quality
  • Rather quiet
  • Convenient cord lock
  • Light enough
  • Highly reliable
  • It’s not very convenient to clean the cover

Caliber ET-1500V

Probably beyond competition, taking into account price, workmanship and power reserve. The soft start function pleasantly surprises, this was not the case with the previously used model. Mowing quite wide and confident. The casing has an extension for working with fishing line and is equipped with a cutter of excess length. When working with a metal knife, it disconnects.

  • Powerful and reliable
  • Metal disc included
  • Light weight
  • Convenient transportation
  • Good performance
  • It is inconvenient to keep the button operational for a long time
