Strimmers and Brushcutters
Strimmers, or line trimmers as they are also known, are great tools for cutting grass around fencing posts, washing lines and other areas that a lawn mower is unable to tackle. Strimmers use a nylon cord to cut the grass and can be either electrically or petrol powered.
Brush Cutters are a more powerful machine and are designed for tackling tougher perennial weeds, such as nettles and bramble. Brush cutters are almost exclusively petrol powered.
