gas or electric or cordless string trimmer
Original Message   Apr 22, 2015 7:27 am
Hello, I am looking for a new string trimmer with edger attachment and was wondering which was to go. Right now I have a Worx cordless trimmer which is a little awkward to use but gets the job done. I am not really a fan of the charging system on this trimmer as all you go by is the green or red light to see if the battery is charging and having to make sure the battery is not overcharged as it can kill the battery as the charger does not shut off. Anyhow, I do not have a lot of yard to trim which is why I went with a cordless but I am looking for suggestions in an upgrade as I need an edger. The Worx edger part on the trimmer I have is garbage. I really do not want to spend a lot of money now but I know that you get what you pay for. I was looking at some refurbished gas units but not owning a gas trimmer before I am not sure how well they work and how decent a refurbished unit is. I see them pretty inexpensive on EBAY and was just wondering if they are going to be another headache or something decent. I was also looking at the Black and Decker electric edger LE750, which is electric, but I am really not a fan of having to haul an electric cord out in order to edge but on the other hand I will only be using it twice a month maybe, which is an option. I would appreciate any suggestions you could give me. Thanks

I'm with RIT333, but there is a learning curve and maintenance with gas powered units. I also am a big fan of curbside and freebees..............

if don't like electric one, I think the gas string trimmer will be the best option for you

I'm not sure which Worx cordless trimmer model you're using but the Worx 32V GT2.0 is pretty good if you're looking for a trimmer / edger / mini mower combo. The Ryobi RY40210 is also a pretty decent cordless weed eater / edger.
