Choose between benizovoy trimmer and electric. The choice initially tended to electric, because they are cheaper, but almost all electric trimmers use a fishing line or a plastic knife, which for my purposes (a section overgrown with Canadian maple and burdock) was too tender a solution. As a result, the choice fell on the Patriot PT545. Looking ahead, I will say that I had experience working with STILL petrol trimmers. one with a knife, one with a fishing line and a system "Auto cut" (such nonsense with a plastic knife), and so Patriot is making all the more expensive STILL trimmers with the Auto cut system in all respects, and is a bit behind STILL with a metal knife! Well, this is my personal opinion.

The Patriot PT545 comes in two boxes. in one boom, in another motor and accessories

By the way, before you screw the protective cover, you need to tighten the screws that secure the plate to which this cover clings! Here they are, these screws:

Third screw "lock" as you can see, it’s already gone (I’m in the ecstasy of mowing, I began to swing it with a trimmer like a katana, the protective cover turned around its axis (the locking screw pulled out the meat) and cut a piece of this cover with a knife. To prevent this, tighten the damn screws!

Trimmer grade Patriot PT 545: two hexagons, a spanner wrench with a screwdriver, a nozzle with a fishing line, a circular saw (probably for very thick trees))), clamps for attaching a gas cable, a sealing washer, a jar for mixing gasoline with oil.

By the way, the bank turned out to be very convenient. pour gasoline on the left risk, add oil on the right:

The instructions say that you need to use the original Patriot oil. Yes of course))). Mixing ratio. 32: 1 surprised me a bit, because I always believed that for two-stroke engines, the propotion is 50: 1. Since I naturally did not have Patriot oil, without hesitation, I poured into my brand new Chinese trimmer my mixture for the YAMAHA outboard motor, diluted 50: 1 with Yamaha brand oil. The Chinese seemed to be not against such a turn of events) Started up the first time from the fifth or sixth, but then started up with a half-jerk. For 10 minutes he mowed a clearing, overgrown with dense growth of Canadian maple, burdock and some kind of vile creeping grass. Photo "before" did not, here is a photo "after": (The height of the grass was waist-high)

Here are the bells Patriot cuts without wincing:

And such a maple:

I think plastic knives never dreamed of.

While he mowed, he hit with a knife a pile of paving slabs (he completely forgot about it. It was piled in a corner, then overgrown with grass) and touched a slightly large tree. apricot. The knife passed the test with dignity. only the paint slightly departed:

Of the shortcomings: (although what are the disadvantages for that kind of money). rather strong vibration of the motor. An entangled trimmer lying on the ground twitches like a snake. Well, it’s also inconvenient to pour gasoline. the starter handle overlaps the filler neck. But in general, more than a decent trimmer, build quality at an altitude, performs its task 100% Satisfied with the purchase. Finally, a few more photos:
