This year I am in the market for a new weed eater again. I actually bought a new one last year, but unfortunately it broke and I am in need of a new one. Last year’s model I found on sale at a local hardware store and purchased it without doing any research. Not only did it end up breaking, but when it was running, it did not perform very well at all.
This year I plan to approach my purchase differently. Already I have looked around online to to read reviews on some of the top weed eaters for sale. I came across a website trimmerreviews.org that had a lot of good information. The guy who writes it has his own lawn and landscape company, so I feel good trusting his advice. He also gave a breakdown on his choice for top electric, battery powered, and gas models.
The last trimmer I purchased last year was battery powered. However, this time I plan to purchase a gas unit. I’ve made up my mind that I am going to purchase the best gas weed eater available, even if it costs more than what I want to spend. I have realized by spending more money up front, I can actually save money in the long run. The reason is, a more expensive, quality string trimmer will end up lasting longer than a cheaper, cheaply made unit.
After reading several gas weed eater reviews, I have narrowed my selection down to three choices: Hitachi, Stihl, or Shindaiwa. I have read good things about all of them and the prices are pretty comparable. Although, I have found the Hitachi for a discounted rate at an online store. The Stihl and the Shindaiwa are made for commercial use. The Hitachi is more intended for homeowner use, but one of the things I like about it is the seven year warranty that is included. That is the one I will most likely end up buying.
