How do I know which one to buy?
Your lawn, yard is so clean & beautiful thanks to the walk-behind trimmer.
Tired of balancing your heavy trimmer on the back two-wheels. You want to be able to trim much longer, don’t you?
Do you believe all of the brands/models of these machines are all rides on the back two-wheels?
Have you ever wonder why don’t they make these trimmers like the lawnmowers which ride on four-wheels?
The problem with the walk-behind trimmer is you have to push down on the handlebar to raise up the spin-cup above the ground, to be able to move the trimmer.
Otherwise, the trimmer will not move.
If you ask the owners of the walk-behind trimmers they all saying this. They wish there is a way to make their trimmers easier to control and to maneuver.
Checkout Review Trimmers Before Buying. Especially for the Craftsman brand owners.
We gathered the manufacturer’s specification of 21 brands and many models for you to read, and compare them, gaining knowledge and may have an idea which one to buy.
It all depends on your need such as:
1. How big is your land?
2. Do you like manual or electric starter.
3. Push or self-propelled.
4. The back two-wheel range from 12″ through 16″ in diameter.
5. Electric or Battery engine.
6. Exchangeable spindle-mount for accessories and attachments or standard spindles.
The best thing to do is to look around your neighborhood, ask the owner of these machines, how they like their trimmers.
They will tell you, and may even let you take it for a test drive in their backyard. That is what I did before I bought my own.
