What the go to brand? Simple string line replacement and maybe compatible batt with other cordless tools.
Yup, my Makita motor is like that, but I just wanted a small light one for lawn duty, I just blow off the grass around the louvers when I'm done. I've got gas powerhead ones I use for heavy duty grove applications. Way to cumbersome for lawn work.I have a dewalt but I wouldn't recommend it. While it works fine, the motor is down on the bottom so it fills up with grass and dust and you can't use other quick change attachment like you can with the "powerhead" style
This is what I recently bought and the edger attachment. I already have a lot of Milwaukee stuff so it makes sense for me. No complaints, but it was my first time mowing a lawn since I was a kid. ( new grass in the backyard and don't want the gardeners contaminating it with weeds)I dont know if you've already bought into a color of tool yet, but this is the one i'd get.
I like that the quik-lok system lets you also get a hedger / pole saw attachment if you wish
Lol mine ended up in the trash can, I had the same one until the damn string wouldn't come out. It took a high speed flight across the yard. I'm buying the next model up, still Makita seeing as I have like 20 batteries.Since I've got all Makita tools and a bunch of various sized batts, I bought the light weight Makita trimmer. I've got a big gas Echo for my grove duty and just wanted a smaller light version for trimming and edging my lawn. This one extends, retracts and reverses, making it really handy and easy to carry. I've got Makita cordless chain saw, blower, trimmer and dig them all big time --- BUT I didn't get their hedge trimmer, instead going with Black and Decker, because the Makita had to many safety nannies so I couldn't one hand it when necessary.
Same here. At this point I have their 40v Weed Eater, Hedge Trimmer, Leaf Blower, and Chain Saw. Can't go wrong when you always have full batteries.I have the full suite of Ryobi 40v products from Home Depot. Same battery for everything. The weedwacker changes into an edger in about 5 seconds. Really good battery life but I (and a couple friends) have had issues with the chargers. Otherwise very happy with it.
I'll have to see if I can buy a retro-fit speed feed for my older echo whacker.I have the echo with speed feed trimmer head. It’s a game changer when you need to add new line. Overall it’s an awesome battery powered tool. But runs outta juice if your not done in an action packed 1/2 hour.
The speed feed alone is worth it.
ECHO's diverse list of products includes blowers, trimmers, chainsaws, edgers, accessories and more providing powerful solutions for your lawn care needs.www.echo-usa.com
Milwaukee, Makita or Dewalt if you want comparability with pro grade tools. Ryobi 18v product will work fine, their tools are less expensive but i wouldn’t suggest for the job site. Ego product is solid but doesn’t have power tool crossover. Ryobi 40v is very similar. Good power and are adding a ton of additional products but garden focused.What the go to brand? Simple string line replacement and maybe compatible batt with other cordless tools.
+1 on this, I've got one just to trim up around the edges of the lawn. I charge it about twice a summer, "worx" great and yes, it feeds properly.less your trimming sage brush i have the worx.works great and actually feeds like its suppose to.hate the fucking trimmers where your always fucking with the feed line.lol
