Best Gas Powered Weed Eaters
Here are some of the Popular Gas Powered Weed Eaters:
Reviews praise this curved-shaft Echo gas powered weed eater for its ease of starting and handling, as well as excellent performance in both trimming and edging -- even on tall grass or tough weeds. It weighs 9.6 pounds, lightweight for a professional-level gas trimmer. The Echo GT-200R is similar, but its engine doesn't meet California's emissions standards. Both string trimmers carry a two-year warranty.
Weedeater Featherlite SST25:
The Weedeater Featherlite SST25 weighs ten pounds, only a few ounces more than the Echo gas powered weed eater above, and its straight shaft reaches under shrubbery better than curved-shaft trimmers. Reviews praise the Weedeater's aggressive cutting power and ease of cutting line replacement. It has a two-year warranty. Reviews say the Weedeater isn't as good on tall grass or weeds as the Echo GT-201R, so it's best for well-kept lawns without a lot of tough weeds.
This Shindaiwa professional-level string trimmer uses a hybrid 4-cycle / 2-cycle engine that cuts air polluting emissions by about 75%. The 4-cycle engine is also quieter than the 2-cycle engines on most gas trimmers. Reviews say the Shindaiwa trimmer offers superb handling and performance, even on tall grass and tough weeds. The line is easy to replace as well. The Shindaiwa string trimmer has a two-year warranty plus a lifetime warranty on the steel straight shaft.
