The Cordless Weed Eater

Recently, cordless weed eaters have been increasing their reputation among home owners and lawn care aficionados alike. Here we are going to look at both the benefits and the potential troubles of the cordless weed eater and why the gaining recognition of the cordless weed eater exists. By reading this article you will know weather a cordless weed eater is the right buy for you.

The cordless weed eater resolves four problems. Problem one is the problem of all electrical weed eaters with a cord and that is mobility. Weed eaters with extension cords are restricted in their vicinity range of service by the span of the power cord they are attached too. Extension cords, usually come in 50 feet, but can come in more or less as well. That means that when you plug in your electric weed eater, you are tremendously limited in the gross area that you can trim your lawn. If you have a little yard, it might not be a large issue, but most people will find that being joined to the wall by an extension cord, limits the liberty and satisfaction of trimming your lawn. There are big restraints with corners of the house, getting by parked automobiles in the driveway, bushes, trees, etc. But with the cordless weed eater, you can roam freely within your yard, devoid of tripping on, or tying up cords.

Cordless weed eaters solve a further dilemma that gas weed eaters cant. Noise. One of the most maddening things to wake up to on a Saturday morning in the summer is the hum of a gas weed eater engine buzzing in your ears. With all electric weed eaters, battery operated included, you easily trim weeds in you yard at 6am without waking the neighbors.

Problem number three - Weight. With gas powered weed eaters, the weight can be a little cumbersome, particularly if you have a huge yard, and/or aren't in the best shape. 2 and 4 cycle gas engines are known for being a lot heavier than cordless weed wackers.

Last and final issue solved is the environment. With electric battery operated weed eaters, you don't have to worry about leaving a sizeable carbon footprint since there are little to no emissions contrasting with their gas brothers

Now we should look at the disadvantage of owning a battery operated weed eater. Firstly is the fact they aren't as transportable as gas ones. Yes they are more mobile than electric weed eaters with cords, but they just don't stand up to the mobility you get with a gas weed eater for one simple reason. A tank of gas will last a lot longer than the life of a battery. Usually batteries on weed eaters will last around a half an hour some up to an hour, but try trimming the toughest weeds in your lawn while all of a sudden the battery starts dying down. Not fun at all! So you will need to stay close to an outlet to charge your batteries or have enough spare to take over when the others start to fade.

Lastly and probably the largest concern that people have with mobile cordless weed eaters is the fact that just are not as powerful as gas weed eaters. Gas weed eaters can handle some pretty tough weeds and you really need to explore what kinds of weeds you have in your lawn that need to be trimmed, and review the electric battery operated weed wackers that you might plan on purchasing just to make sure that customers haven't complained on their overall power.
