Product Spotlight - Strimmers

We’ve spoke a lot lately about large job such as the first cut of the year, lawn maintenance etc

But eventually you’re going to come down to those smaller, tidying/maintenance job that can really add those extra touches to your garden.

This is where a Strimmer comes in.

Yes, they can do larger jobs like trimming back overgrown areas, but they really come into their own on the smaller jobs like edging and trimming.

So let’s look at a few of these versatile little machines and see what they have to offer.

SGT 226 J Petrol Trimmer

This environmentally friendly petrol strimmer is great for all kinds of jobs. It features ‘Tap N’go’ where the line can be renewed automatically at the push of a button, even while it is in use.

SGT 226 J Petrol Trimmer - £119

Stihl FS 38

This is another strimmer perfect for along walls, around trees and around edges but the reason it’s on the list is that it weighs just 4kg!

Stihl FS 38 - £165

Tanaka TCG22EAB

While still light at 4KG, the Tanaka TCG22EAB features a bent shaft to allow for a better view of the job you are performing for extra control and accuracy. There is also a loop handle for firm yet comfortable control.

Stihl FS 50 C-E

To step it up a bit, the Stihl FS 50 C-E can still handle all the same jobs and has a bent shaft and loop handle. But it also has ‘jerk free starting’ and a more streamlined start up process as well as a low emission 2 stroke engine.

Not bad, especially when you consider it only weighs 4.5KG
