Gas handheld string trimmers are the most common style used.
The reason is because they're so versatile. They are powerful enough to cut through thicker weeds, but maneuverable enough to use just about anywhere.
Gas handheld string trimmers vary based on what features best suit your needs, so whether you're a homeowner or a professional, there's a model that will fit your needs.
Entry-Level Gas Handheld String Trimmer
Affordable and simple in design, entry-level gas handheld string trimmers are ideal for the homeowner with minimal trimming to do. They're designed for around 2 hours of use per week.
They're effective around flower beds that don't have a border, and along small walkways, however they're not ideal for edging or getting in tight spaces.
Commercial gas string trimmers are built to last and easy to service. They're the preferred choice of professional landscapers, because they're durable, serviceable, can get into tight spaces, and are made from high quality components designed for 8 hours of use, 7 days a week.
Homeowners may be interested in investing in a commercial gas handheld string trimmer because they'll last longer. If you have a large lot, or you find yourself trimming a few times a week, it may be a worthwhile investment to ensure that your trimmer will stand up to the challenge and never let you down.
