Face Shield Mesh Visor & Browguard Ideal For Brushcutter Strimmer Trimmer Shield
About this deal
Without getting embroiled in the physics, a strimmer utilises high speed centrifugal force to do all the cutting - essentially the faster it spins, the stiffer the line, the greater the cutting potential. You might think simply hovering your strimmer over a section of grass is the best way to do all the cutting - however this is incorrect; the very ends of the trimming line are where all the cutting power is being focused. Like any other cutting tool, you need to know where the “sharp bit” is to use it properly - for your strimmer, it’s the very tip of the line. You’re just about ready to get under way with your strimming. Electric strimmers will be as simple as a switch and possibly a dead mans switch. Petrol power strimmer will have a starting procedure that’s explained in the manual. You can see a step-by-step picture guide for starting an SGS strimmer here. Some obstacles can’t be easily walked around, particularly when working in longer grass. You shouldn’t attempt scything unless you have a powerful strimmer - preferably a petrol strimmer. To trim longer grass and weeds, or to cut around a more difficultly placed obstacle, take a strong stance and bring the tool in and out of the cutting area in a shallow “U” shape. You can overlap your scythes for a more even cut, or space them out a bit for a natural wavy effect.

They each have their own uses, and unique aesthetics depending on what you want to achieve. We’ll go through them all in turn.

The biggest difference between all the available strimmers on the market is how the motor is powered. The three most common ways of powering a grass strimmer are 2-stroke petrol engines, battery powered motors, and mains powered electric strimmers. The first thing you should do before you get to work in your garden is make sure you know what your strimmer is suitable for and capable of.
We’ve already been through what protective equipment is advised, but it’s worth reiterating that you need something like safety glasses or a visor to protect your face, sturdy shoes and long trousers before you start strimming. Gloves, ear defenders and steel toe cap boots are also recommended. Tapering gives a gradual, fading grass effect that looks particularly attractive around obstacles, giving a more natural feel than the strong parallel cut you get from edging. Instead of angling the trimmer line flat (like you do when edging) hold your strimmer at a slight angle. Pitch the tip of the cutting line towards the object you’re trimming around - you’ll cut less grass as you move around the obstacle, but a tapered edge means you won’t end up with an unattractive channel of grass between where you’ve mowed and your obstruction. Blend the edge with the height of your mowed grass for a clean but natural looking finish.
