beautiful - is not it?Human nature is concerned not only about the convenience of the surrounding space, but also its beauty.This is inherent from birth is our natural demand.People in the past have sought to arrangement and beautification of habitat, an example to the palaces of the nobility and ensembles estates.But the beauty of modern technology is that we do not need to be rich to afford a refined and harmonious design suburban area, or gardening area.
tool, which will be discussed in this article is intended as a time to take care of gardening area, it is called a trimmer.In it, we consider the following

What trimmer, its main elements
What is the trimmer?The word is derived from the English word «trim,» which literally means to put in order.In our variant means a device designed to clean up gardening area.T
Now let's briefly look at the basic elements of the device.The image below is a description of the basic units.
Different manufacturers design and characteristics of the basic units may vary, but the principle is the same.The engine - one of the most important machine components, depend on it as the speed of rotation of the cutting part and device capabilities and ease of use.Engine trimmer may be located in the lower part.The bar - the main carrier of the design, is located inside the gear unit: wire or shaft.The handle - especially for her to notice nothing, except by its shape and location depends on the usability of the tool.The protective cover is needed to protect against injury, as the cutting element is rotated at high speed, respectively, and "thrown out" of the particle and stones have great speed, and it is fraught with trauma.Therefore, we strongly recommend - do not work without the guard and safety glasses.
As for the bobbin, it is the carrier of the cutting element - of fishing line.It should be noted that the fishing line may be of different diameters, it in turn depends on the type of plants mowed.The construction involves the installation of some trim metal and plastic knives.
How to start your selection?
And to begin, perhaps, it is necessary, as always, with the definition of the tasks you set for yourself.That is necessary to determine the following questions:
- what kind of vegetation is planned to mow?
- How far to the nearest 220V power supply?
- who is the primary user of the trimmer: a man or a woman?
As the above questions affect the choice of tools?Let's look.Type of vegetation: it is obvious that for the "haircut" decorative lawn trimmer will need a low-power small-diameter fishing line, usually electric lawn trimmer.But if the plan to use the device for bevel nettles, burdock and similar plants, not to mention pruning bushes - low power you to anything.EQS is possible if long tormented, but with such loads trimmer quickly fail.The same applies to areas for mowing, if more than 5 acres - take trimmer gasoline.
Once decided on the vegetation - turn the power supply.Again - if the same territory in which the network 220 is a long distance or not at all, then you should choose the trimmer gasoline.This will be the best solution in the case if the humidity in the area increased and the humidity and electric current are electrical accident, with varying degrees of severity.
And the last question depends on the weight of the trimmer.For a woman it is unlikely to fit voluminous, heavy and powerful petrol unit.They can take advantage of it, but the effectiveness and enjoyment of such work is poor.
features and characteristics of the most common models
review of several models will be organized as follows: Select the model and consider what its features, for what tasks more suitable.
We begin with a model trimmer BOSCH ART30 CombiTRIM , depicted below.I note that the data I use the trimmer for the third year.
now about the advantages:
- light, respectively, less hand fatigue, greater comfort;
- engine BOSCH, reliable, powerful enough;
- low cost.
- small length of the rod, respectively, with a large increase in people working to be uncomfortable;
- spool with a thin fishing line - practically useless part, mow it is impossible, but there is a thick spool of fishing line to it and saves the value of thick fishing line mows well;
- electric trimmer, so on the wet grass or under a light rain can not mow - it is rather the lack of electric trimmers.
Conclusion : if a small area of lawn, next to the power source then you can use this tool, the price covers the inconvenience.
Lawn Trimmer Husqvarna 128L
- low weight for gasoline trimmer;
- simplicity and ease of launch;
- easy configuration of the handle, making it easy to use;

- no belt, especially because of its cost, this fact absolutely clear;
Conclusion : suitable for mowing wet areas up to 7 acres, convenient to use.A significant drawback is the value for money - the quality, but if you are not severely constrained in finance - a decent tool.
And finally consider Trimmer MTD 790 MAST
- power and speed of rotation;
- chromed engine is guaranteed to last for more than one season;
- fast start;

- good value for money - quality.
- inconvenient handle design, making it difficult to work for a few hours, but you can search for the same model, but with a different configuration of the handle;
- the noise of the brush cutter, it is advisable to purchase headphones.
Conclusion : German quality lawn mower, but it can be caught and Mexican assembly.Dimensions for the mowing area are almost unlimited - power 1 hpsays a lot.Several heavy, more than 6 kilograms - clearly not a female tool.But mows all important not to forget to change the nozzle.
I would like to mention a few important nuances choice of garden trimmer.If you are just getting started with this type of tool, trust is better known and proven brands.When purchasing be sure to take the assembled trimmer in hand, make sure it is suitable for you personally.Try it on the level of noise and vibration during operation - before buying.
