Maybe you have already decided you want a petrol trimmer? First, we would ask you to have a quick look at these points before looking at the petrol strimmers below.
#1 – Area to Trim
A petrol grass trimmer is ideal if you have a large area to cover because you have total freedom with it. Not only that but the straps and machine are built for extended use so should be more comfortable over longer usage periods.
#2 – Type of Terrain
Petrol machines generally have much more power than electric ones so they are suitable for thicker and more overgrown areas of grass and brush. You often find that they come with changeable heads for cutting grass and thick overgrown areas with a brush cutter.
#3 – Noise
The engine can be very noisy on a petrol strimmer so if you have neighbours in close proximity that could cause a problem if you are using the machine for long periods of time.
#4 – Frequency of Use
Professional gardeners nearly always use petrol machines because they are more durable, more powerful and can therefore deal handle a range of jobs. If you are using a machine everyday you want to know that it will last. Having said that the engine on the machine will require a lot more maintenance when compared to an electric one so that will increase costs.
