A weed-whacker efficiently removes weeds and vegetation from a yard and there are many different models on the market for you to choose from. These include gas and electric powered devices, clipper or shearing models, and those using a fishing line to trim undesired weeds and plant growth.
Here are five of the best weed-whacker models available for you to purchase and use. They range in price from $209 to $330, and offer different features. The models include the Craftsman Weedwacker Gas Trimmer, Husqvarna 128DJx, Honda Trimmer HHT25SLTAT, Poulan PRO PP033 Curved Trimmer, and the Echo SRM-225.
Craftsman Weedwacker Gas Trimmer (Price: $209)
The Weedwacker Gas Trimmer (Model #71170) is made by Craftsman, a trusted name in home and garden appliances and devices. The 71170 model has a 4 horsepower (hp) gas engine and uses a curved handle that allows you greater cutting flexibility, especially for hard to reach weeds. It also features a quick-change spooling system that may take some getting used to, but this does not take away from the quality of this weed-eating machine.
Husqvarna 128DJx (Price: $230)
Priced at around $230, the 128DJx is a gas powered weed trimmer offered by Husqvarna. This weed-whacker operates on a mixture of oil and gas. Although it has a straight handle, it is lightweight and easy to work with. When using this weed-whacker, you should orientate yourself to its balance due to the straight shaft of the trimmer.
Honda Trimmer HHT25SLTAT (Price: $330)
Another highly rated four-cycle gas powered trimmer for your consideration is the Model # HHT25SLTAT Trimmer by Honda. It also features a straight shaft but at 13 pounds, is lightweight and powerful enough for the toughest jobs. It is a high quality weed-whacker, justifying its expensive price tag.
Poulan PRO PP033 Curved Trimmer (Price: $266)
The Pro PP033 Curved Trimmer from Poulan is a gas-powered device that has a lot of power and versatility. One of the best features of this weed-whacker is its ability to use attachments from other trimmers that are currently on the market. This flexibility means that you may not have to throw out the attachments from other weed-whackers you already own.
Echo SRM-225 (Price: $219)
The Model SRM-225 is made by Echo and is a lightweight, powerful and sturdy weed-whacker. It is a relatively inexpensive weed-whacker (at least among the top models you can buy) and is easy to use and operate. The only drawback to the SRM-225 is that its only accessory is a harness and its straight shaft design makes it difficult to use as a sidewalk trimmer.
Any of these models can provide you with the weed-whacker you want along with the power and ease of use that you need for your weed trimming work. You can find these suggested models and other weed-whackers at any hardware or home improvement store. You can also find all five of these weed-whackers online, where you might be able to purchase them at a discount.
