If you need a tool for maintaining smaller grass areas in your garden, here you have some really nice examples of the best electric corded string trimmers currently on the market.
When I was in search of my new string trimmer, I realized that most of the models available online were actually cordless. The grass areas in my garden where I need a trimmer/edger are easily accessible with the cable that I am already using with my electric lawn mover. So I decided to buy one simple electric corded string trimmer. Note that these are usually more affordable.
I need such a string grass trimmer near the garden fence and also in a few other places. Eventually, the Black & Decker GL310 model shown in the pictures is what I decided to buy.
The picture below shows the original box in which it arrived so you can see the power and the diameter of the string. Note that there is a handle included, it should be attached but this is easily done. You can see it attached in the top picture above.
The same holds for the guard that you see below, you have to attach it and fix it with a screw. So these are the only things to do before you have the trimmer ready. The string line is already in place.
The cable which you see in the top picture above is not included of course, but as you realize, it happens to be the same color as the machine. I made these photos before using the trimmer, this was on purpose to show details while it was still clean.
Note that the string may break when you use it, so if this happens it is easy to extend it, see below how this looks. You simply press the central area here in the picture and pull the string. No worry if it is too long, it will be cut when the motor starts rotating.
This is a very simple grass trimmer with a single string. You will see in the pictures below some machines that have extra details for trimming. These may include a more ergonomic and adjustable handle, a pivoting flower guard, two strings, a pivoting motorhead, and a few more nice details. For my small warks in the garden, this tool is perfectly fine.
If you have a larger area to maintain with such a tool, it may be a good idea to go for the model with a larger rotating string diameter. My own machine is 25 cm but you can have them 35 or even more. Note that there are also models with extendable telescopic tubes. If you are new to this, you can read a bit more about such machines here.
