In these instances, having a narrower cutting width can be useful. This is another reason why it’s useful to have a choice of cutting heads.

Specification: Warranty: yes (1 year) , 2 or 4 stroke: 2 stroke , Engine power: 3 HP , Weight: 18.2 kg This Makita petrol strimmer is controlled by large cow horn style handlebars that have soft rubberised grips for comfort when using it for longer periods. It is fairly lightweight considering it’s a 4 stroke, tipping the scale at around 10kg when fitted with the brush cutter blade, harness and a full tank of petrol. The first thing you notice with the Gtech GT50 strimmer is how light it is. At 1.85kgs, this model is easy to hold and use, plus it could strim the neighbourhood and still have enough energy left to strim it again. Actually, that may be a bit far fetched since the battery only lasts about 30 minutes. Nevertheless, from experience, 30 minutes is all it takes to trim the edges of a moderately large lawn. Specification: Warranty: yes (1 year) , 2 or 4 stroke: 2 stroke , Engine power: 0.75 kW , Weight: 4.9 kg I’ve done a lot of digging and I’m pleased to say I’ve found a cordless strimmer with a lithium-ion battery that is powerful enough for heavy-duty work.


With their EBH252U model, Makita has chosen to go with a 1 horsepower, 24.5cc 4 stroke engine instead. This engine is quieter than 2 stroke types and the clean exhaust system makes sure minimal emissions are released. Being one of only a few 4 stroke petrol strimmers for sale in the UK at the moment, it’s a league above most of what we’ve reviewed in terms of quality and although costing much more money, I can’t help but think it’s still extremely good value.

Let’s take a look at the design first. This strimmer has a 25 mm cutting width, which is generous without being impractical, and 2-in-1 functionality. Plus, it weighs just 2.8 kg which makes it relatively comfortable to use for long periods of time – though some people may still find it a little heavy. The secondary handle helps with control, while the 10 m power cable means it’s suitable for most average size gardens. It weighs 8.9 kg and has handlebar-style handles to provide a good grip on the strimmer – especially useful when working through tougher terrain; however, the harness could be of better quality to help more securely distribute the weight. Being a 2 stroke engine there is some smoke emission to be expected, especially when at full throttle but it clears a fair bit once you’ve been at power for a while, and a little noise but that’s to be expected too. Like all small petrol engines – both four- and two-stroke – this one benefits most from being used with Aspen fuel which you can read more about in our guide to the Best Petrol Lawn Mowers.

Saw blade attachment

Are practical for neatening up areas where the mower can’t reach. The light weight means they’re easy to get out of the shed The type of handle can make a difference in terms of how easy the strimmer is to control. There are generally two types of handles: a bicycle-handlebar style handle, and a U-shaped shaft handle. It’s easy to start, simply set the choke, pump the fuel primer, pull the starter cord and away you go. It stops after just a brief press of the stop button. It’s also possible to adjust the height and angle of the handlebars to make them better suited to the height and preferences of different users.

The battery that came with this cordless grass trimmer had a run time of around 30 minutes, but you can’t expect too much from a 2.0 Ah battery. The fact that it charges in just 1 hour is a huge plus however. The main business of strimming is performed by a 28cm dual-line auto-feed cassette. The line itself is lightly crimped every centimetre along its length and this helps the line blade cut it more accurately so you don’t end up with uneven ends. Dual-line strimmers may take a little longer to reload but they offer faster cutting and are more easily able to deal with tough undergrowth. Whether you’re struggling with overgrown grass, shrubbery, weeds or brambles, investing in a petrol grass trimmer is one of the best ways to keep your garden under control. The shaft is strong yet lightweight like the motor and the whole strimmer only weighs just over 5kg. This makes it easy to move around and control with the compact D-shaped loop handle without the need for a harness, although I’d still recommend using one if you’re doing anything but the smallest of jobs. If you look around, you can probably get a free harness when you buy one of Ryobi’s attachments. Assembly wasn’t the easiest, the instructions forget to mention removing a rubber band so you can fit the handle, and this might frustrate some people, but it takes less than 30 seconds to rectify.

Essential Maintenance and How to Put Your Petrol Strimmer into Winter Storage

At 10.7 kg, this is one of the heavier petrol strimmers featured here, but there are a couple of things that help make it more comfortable. Primarily, there is a decent harness included that is more than just a single shoulder strap; it’s adjustable, with padded coverings and should distribute the weight well. For the price, you pay you to get the battery and charger included as well as a line trimmer head, brush cutter blade, shoulder strap and various tools you need to get you going.

The power of the cutting head is dependent on the engine that’s driving it. the more powerful engine will generally give a more efficient cut. For petrol engines, the power is generally given in displacement or cc with a higher cc meaning more power.Many of the best petrol strimmers offer 2-in-1 functionality . They come with two head attachments: a cutting-line head and a brush-cutter head. This improves the tool’s versatility, allowing you to cut an array of vegetation. Sometimes a product comes along that blows the competition over the garden wall. This is one of them. It remains fairly comfortable to use despite the high power, with easy start up, a straight shaft and a bike handle that offers better control than traditional D-ring handles, especially due to the increased weight. This handle is fully adjustable so can be set to accommodate users of different heights.
