Selecting a weed eater.

nkululeku(9)June 24, 2014

I am a woman, and find it impossible to pull start any equipment, otherwise I'm amazingly strong. My 1 acre property is very uneven and I need to get in there about once or twice a year to clear the weeds. My husband can start the machine for me, but it is infuriating (had a Sears weed eater) if I have to climb back to the house for him to start it again every time it dies on me, or I have to change the line.
So to summarize, I need either a weed eater that is i) easy for me to start, OR ii) once it is going, can do the whole job without stopping and starting over and over again.

You need an electric trimmer. My brother owns a Core brand Li-ion battery powered string trimmer. It is a serious machine and it is not a toy like electrics you find in the discount stores. It has a breakthrough design motor and has tons of power and run time. Check out the link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: core
