What to Look for in Lawn Edgers It is always a great satisfaction for a person who personally mows his or her lawn to see the area nicely edged or trimmed. But take note that aside from mowing your lawn, you have to edge or trim it to make it look special in the end. And so, to make your lawn beautiful after mowing, the tool that you need is the lawn edger or trimmer to finish the look. There are several things that you have to look for in a lawn edger/trimmer. First is to look for an edger/trimmer that with just 1 or 2 pulls of its cord will start immediately.
Lessons Learned from Years with Machines
A gas powered push type of lawn edger/trimmer is what you should check out since this type will give you speed, convenience and quality of cut that other edgers like pole and electric cannot give.
Doing Machines The Right Way
Next thing to look for in your lawn edger/trimmer is that if it has the sufficient torque and horsepower to execute the job. For a normal yard, the sufficient edger/trimmer has a 4.75 torque and 3.5 horsepower to work on the yard. A safety feature that you should look for in your lawn edger/trimmer is if it has a blade disengagement capability. With this capability, you are protecting the user when using the edger since this will allow you to disengage the edger’s cutter blade from turning. A good edger/trimmer should be able to maintain balance when used on curbs and uneven grounds, and this is one of the features that you should look for. Note that a four-wheeled edger has better balance than an edger with just three wheels. Look for an edger/trimmer that will give you a neat, sharp, clean-looking grass cut on the sidewalks, driveway, flowerbeds, and so on. Another feature that you should look for in an edger/trimmer is the convenience it allows you to replace the edger blade once worn down and ready for replacement. Since safety is very important for you, buy an edger/trimmer that has protection to the user like an edger blade guard, or a rear edger/trimmer debris protector. Bear in mind when you buy your edger/trimmer that it should allow you to switch it from one job back to the other job with less effort. Since an edger/trimmer is available in the market as gas powered and electric, it is suggested that you buy according to your own requirements or needs. The two types of edger/trimmer have of course their differences, disadvantages and advantages, and your choice will depend on your requirements. In an electric edger, there are two models and these are the battery operated edger and the AC powered edger, while in a gas edgers, models come in a four-cycle engine and a two-cycle engine.
