Features and manufacturers
In any place, sloppy, poorly groomed grass looks very bad. Conventional lawn mowers do not always help to tidy it up. They are very expensive, and even with funds, lack of maneuverability is a serious disadvantage. A small trimmer can do about the same job. However, it is smaller and cheaper.
High-quality trimmers are produced by those firms that have established the production of high-quality tools of a different profile. If you do not understand the intricacies, you can safely choose products:
How it all works and works
The trimmer is a hand tool that allows you to cut green grass with a soft stem and not too thick dead wood. It is lighter than a lawn mower and is carried on a belt rather than rolling on wheels.
Using a lawn trimmer, you can quickly remove unwanted vegetation. This technique is also used:
For trimming grass under bushes;
Mowing plants near houses, along paths and fences;
Clearing the space along the roads;
Tidying up the banks of rivers, lakes, streams.
This functionality allows you to use trimmers:
Ordinary people (summer residents and homeowners);
Utilities and management companies;
Enterprises and organizations with a large adjacent territory.
To get ready for work, it is enough to put on the trimmer using the special belts. Then the head of the apparatus is brought closer to the grass and the motor is started. The twisting force is transmitted to the bobbin using a rigid shaft inside a special tube. There is a cutting part in the head. Its quick movements and helps to dissect grass stems.
To avoid hitting solid obstacles, trimmers are equipped with protective covers. The motors can be electric or gasoline powered. In addition to these parts and the fuel tank, a typical design includes:
Guide handle (sometimes there are two of them);
A bobbin ending with a line or knife;
Mini grass trimmers: what they are and how to choose?
Plants in nature are good. But near human habitation, they pose many problems. You can solve them with the compact mini grass trimmer if you choose it correctly.
Electrical devices are connected to 220 V household electrical networks. They cannot do without carrying, plugged into a relatively close socket. For cleaning any large lawn or remote places on a personal plot, such a solution is definitely not suitable. But electric trimmers are silent and do not emit harmful emissions into the atmosphere. The handles are easily adjustable in height, and consumers can fit exactly the knife they need.
Remember, however, that the electric trimmer cannot be used in wet weather or for cutting wet grass. In addition, you will have to constantly watch so that the cutter does not touch the power cord. As for gasoline devices, they are heavier than their electric counterparts. In many ways, this disadvantage is compensated for by increased maneuverability and greater productivity. With such a tool, you can not be afraid of power outages, outages, and even work where there is no power supply in principle.
But this technique creates quite a lot of noise, and therefore you have to work in protective headphones. And the inconvenience to other people cannot be ignored either.
To tidy up the land near the house, home lawns, flower beds and gardens, you can limit yourself to trimmers with a capacity of 0.5 kW. If the electric motor is located at the bottom, then the design is simplified and facilitated. However, this increases the risk of contact with wet objects. The barbell device cannot be ignored either. If it is made in a straight line, then the trimmer will be more reliable and efficient.
Of the individual models noteworthy:
Champion ET 451;
Bosch ART 23 SL;
Oleo-Mac TR 61 E.
Which trimer to choose for a summer residence, see below.
Principle of operation
If we consider the principle of the trimmer, then it is similar to a hand scythe. The difference is that it is equipped with a motor, with its help the cutting element is rotated.
Manufacturing companies produce the following mower models:
- On which a gasoline engine is installed. These garden tools have a fuel tank, this is their distinctive feature.
- Devices with an electric motor. These tools are lighter because they don’t have a fuel tank. But when choosing such models, you need to take into account that a power source is needed for their operation.
All electric streamers can be divided into those that run on batteries and models that are connected to the mains. Each type has its own characteristics, but they affect the power supply unit. If you do not take it into account, then the rest of the design is similar in different devices.
If you take any trimmer model, then it consists of elements such as:
- Fuel tank (electric lawn mowers do not have one);
- Levers with which the mower is controlled;
- Grass cutting knife;
- A spool with a wound line, which is used for cutting grass;
- Protective cover;
- Bevel gear.
The motor is placed near the mowing head and can be mounted from below or from above. The gearbox is only available for models with a straight bar. If it is bent, then the main bearing becomes the connecting element. It consists of 2 bushings.
The choice of the cutting element depends on how hard the grass must be mowed. Most often, a fishing line is used in the work, it is called a cord. There are products of various shapes on sale, among buyers in demand are spiral and round.
The fishing line is wound on a spool, it is inserted into the spool, while the 2 ends of the wire remain free. When the mower engine starts to work, the bobbin rotates, the grass is cut with the free ends of the line.
How to refuel the gas trimmer
Gasoline-powered lawn mowers are available with two-stroke and four-stroke engines. The first option is much more common. What are the differences between them:
- Trimmers with a 2-stroke motor have a faster response to pressing the engaging lever (for this reason, lawn mowers are mainly equipped with this type of engine);
- A tool with a two-stroke engine will be much lighter and also easier to maintain;
- The fuel consumption of a two-stroke engine is about 30% higher than that of a 4-stroke engine with the same power;
- A 4-stroke engine is more environmentally friendly, since the fuel in it burns completely and is not emitted into the atmosphere, and its noise level is much lower;
- And the most important distinguishing feature is the refueling: the 2-stroke engine is equipped with one common tank, into which gasoline mixed with oil is poured; 4-stroke has a separate gas tank and a tank for engine oil.
For refueling, you must use fresh AI-92 or AI-95 gasoline and high-quality motor oil for gardening equipment (manufacturers produce different oils for 2- and 4-stroke engines). The oil can be mineral, semi-synthetic or synthetic.
The proportion of gasoline and oil for trimmers with 2-stroke engine can be found in the instruction manual for the particular model. Usually it is 50: 1, in some cases a ratio of 25: 1 or 40: 1 is recommended. It is necessary to prepare the fuel mixture in a separate container with exact proportions. Never pour liquids by eye directly into the tank without first mixing them. Detailed instructions for mixing gasoline oil, with and a description, can be found on our website here.
Before starting operation, be sure to run in gasoline mowers. The operator turns on the engine, it should run for a while at idle speed. It is necessary to ensure that the engine does not overheat, there should be no load.
When running in lawn mowers, the load is gradually increased. If you start working at high speeds, the motor will not work well, this will affect the further operation of the mower.
When you start it for the first time, you should not completely use up the temporary resource. After the engine runs at idle speed, you can proceed to treating the lawn. The lawn mower should run no more than 15 minutes, after which the motor is turned off, it should cool down.
If you need to run the trimmer, the braid is first assembled. Then do test runs at least 3-5 times. If the engine is running well, proceed to mowing. At first they work no more than 5 minutes, then the duration of work is gradually increased.
We mow under hay
It is better to mow hay not with a fishing line, but with a metal disc. The grass is cut at the root, keeping its length as much as possible.
Wet Weather Operation
Electric mowers must not be used in the rain, there may be a short circuit. When the precipitation stops, you need to wait for the grass to dry.
Not all gasoline mowers are protected from moisture, so some manufacturers prohibit the operation of mowers in the rain.
How the trimmer works and how to use it correctly: refueling and first start
Lawn mowers are devices that make it easy to maintain lawns. The question of how to use the trimmer is asked by those buyers who are just going to purchase a garden tool. The industry produces devices of different types, so when choosing, you need to pay attention to their characteristics.
