Review: Cordless Weed Eater

By March 10, 2012

Follow me on:

Did you know that, technically speaking, the devices many people call "weed eaters" should be referred to as "string trimmers" ("line trimmers" and "weedwackers" are also commonly used terms)? That's because, like Band-Aid, Weed Eater is actually a brand name but has come to be used (incorrectly, if one wishes to be pedantic about it) in a generic sense. The Weed Eater started a revolution in lawn care with its introduction in 1971.

In my review, I take a look at a cordless Weed Eater, one that runs on a battery. As many of you know, when you make the switch from gas-powered equipment or corded electrical equipment to tools that run on a battery, your concerns do not disappear -- they just morph....

Before, you would worry about the messiness involved in using gas, or the hazards/inconvenience involved in dragging a cord around. Now, the issue becomes how well the battery holds its charge -- and how easy it is to recharge it. You know, it's always something!
