Benefits of using an electric lawn mower for your garden
Choosing the lawn mower for your garden, it is not always worth pursuing powerful and dimensional devices. The power of the tool is, undoubtedly, an important parameter, but it certainly increases the weight of the device, its larger dimensions, as well as the higher price and fuel costs. Also, if you have a small garden with densely planted fruit trees or a small lawn with flower beds and shrubs, then careful cleaning weeds and mowing the grass is almost an impossible task for any lawn mower. The ideal solution, in this case, is a good and inexpensive electric line trimmer.
The efficiency of the electric trimmer
An electric cutter, which operates from a household electric grid, can be efficiently used on a plot of four to six hundred square meters, planted with trees, flowers, bushes. A string trimmer is convenient to gently cut the grass near the house or along the curb, to clear paths, and an eco-friendly motor that does not produce exhaust, gas, and burning, will enable even to remove the weeds in any indoor premises – a greenhouse or a conservatory. The trimmer cable limits the cutting grass radius, but it can be increased with a standard extension cord. If this length is not enough for you, or the parameters of the power network do not contribute to the normal operation of the electric motor, you can purchase electric trimmer working from the battery. It works autonomously, the built-in battery lasts for half an hour or an hour of intensive work enough to mow the lawn or garden.
How to use the trimmer the most efficient and safe way
The household trimmer is the easiest to use and at the same time very effective tool. But nevertheless, there are some nuances that you need to know in order to make your trimmer work long and efficiently.
- Lawn preparation. It is necessary to carefully inspect the mowing zone and remove all objects like stones, glass, wire, etc. preventing the safe cutting.
- Installation of the cutting system. There are low-power trimmers, which work with a monofilament line. They do not need to be mounted with a cutting system to mow the soft and juicy grass. But some models of trimmers, having the motor 1 kW and more power, can work with metal or plastic blades.
- Before starting the work. It is very important to wear protective goggles when working with a trimmer because even if you cleaned the site of debris, the eyes can suffer from parts of plant stems and grass. The same stems, grass, and branches can injure your hands, so it is desirable to wear gloves.
After finishing your work it is necessary to carefully clean the spool and blades from the remnants of grass. Then fold the trimmer if it is telescopic or collapsible and keep it until next mowing.
