Battery trimmer for grass: how to choose and whether it is worth choosing it at all
Grass on the suburban area. the theme of eternal and immense. And this same grass needs to be mowed every summer, but more than once and not from case to case, but preferably regularly. How to mow. everyone decides for himself, the choice is quite large. But most options are nevertheless designed for physically strong, healthy people-those whose opportunities are limited by age or ailment, the choice is much less.
Where to find a light, reliable and convenient trimmer for grass?
So far, we will leave it as far as the gas mushrooms and robots-not every site is suitable for their use. Let’s look closer to a universal gun. a trimmer for grass. At first glance, battery models are what you need: light weight, light exploitation, the absence of wires that need to be carried along the site but discussion (grass, grass at the house How do you struggle?) showed that everything is not so unambiguous: the objections to such a choice, perhaps, are no less than the arguments in his favor.
Well, since I still need a trimmer for grass, I decided to approach the case in detail and figure out how to choose a successful. convenient, reliable, practical. battery model. And yes, is it worth making a choice in favor of such technology.
To choose, you must first decide on which parameters comparison, what is important. and what can you do. I got such a list.
And what to look at when choosing?
Here everything is simpler and more complicated Firstly, the technique of promoted brands, as a rule, costs more than analogues from less well-known manufacturers. Secondly, unfortunately, the loud name on the label does not always guarantee quality. And finally, if you look closely, it turns out that almost all the trimmers offered by our stores for grass are produced in China. Absolutely regardless of what brand they are sold.

The idea to focus first of all on the brand burst with a bang after reading reviews. Failure models are uncomfortable, often breaking, with maintenance problems, etc.D All manufacturers have. Alas.
Nevertheless, what has been said does not cancel the fact that a well.known manufacturer with a high probability will have a better and reliable technique. In addition, it is easier for it to choose consumables and spare parts (if necessary), it is easier to repair in case of problems (products of unknown Chinese craftsmen are sometimes not taken for repairs at all).
Finally, since we are talking about battery equipment, it is reasonable to think about the prospect: most serious manufacturers have accumulators of different devices interchangeable, so in the future, if there is a desire to expand their arsenal, it will be possible to save money.
When buying a battery technique of one manufacturer, you can save on the battery and it. Photo from Arthurcourse.COM all kinds of ratings are called leaders among manufacturers of Bosch, Makita, Patriot, STIHL batteries. The latter, however, had inexpensive (up to 10,000) models I could not find on sale. But in this category, GreenWorks is well represented, which produces, judging by the reviews of customers, quite decent batteries.
To begin with (as already mentioned), we look at the presence of the AKB and ZU actually. If this is the first rechargeable device in your arsenal, it is advisable to choose a model with full configuration (when buying the battery and ZU, separately purchasing will cost much more). If you already have a battery technique of the selected manufacturer, it is reasonable for starting to make sure whether the existing battery and ZU are suitable for a new device, and then make a decision.
Sometimes there are very pleasant offers-for example, a set of a trimmer for the grass for Bosch Easygrasscut 18-260 includes 2 batteries (at a price of 8792 rubles, this is a really very successful option). And it is quite unexpected to see such a complete set of the model for 4991. this is how much it costs T Rimmer Patriot TR240 21V. However, remembering exactly where the free cheese is usually found, you need to carefully study all the parameters of such sentences that in pursuit of the benefit not to miss anything really important.
Two batteries in the kit are not often, but it is found. Screenshot Screenshot, LeroyMerlin website.ru
You should also pay attention to the type of cutting element. In battery trimmers, both a fishing line for a trimmer and knives are used. But in this case, knives are not the metal discs that equip powerful gasoline trimmers for grass and which even young trees knocked out-for such work, battery trimmers for medium and economy class grass are too weak (although more expensive models of appropriate power may have Included and metal cutting elements). Light trimmers for grass are equipped with plastic knives. Durability. corresponding (although in comparison with the fishing line, according to reviews, knives are more resilient).
Pay attention to the package of the selected trimmer for grass. Photo from Allegroimg.com
But here another nuance arises: the availability of consumables (which should be attributed, including knives) and the ability to replace them with analogues of other manufacturers. As all the same reviews testify, this question should be taken care of before the purchase, and not at the moment when the part is required. Because the option “went and bought” far from all models is relevant.
I collect and charge a battery trimmer for grass
Upon arrival at the cottage, the Device test began with unpacking. I posted the contents of the box on the table. Poured the instructions. In general, nothing complicated. Even a fishing line for a trimmer does not need to be wrapped: the manufacturer took care of this, and the coil is already ready to work. The trimmer for the grass is collected in three doses.

The voltage of the lithium-ion battery 36 in instilled the hope that the power of a trimmer for the grass should be enough to “chop” even a tall weed. Its capacity is 2.5 A h.

I evaluate the convenience of a trimmer for grass
The trimmer for the grass is relatively light, weighs about 4 kg. if you do not mow long, then it is convenient to hold it by the handle by weight. True, after about 15 minutes I already want to hang it on the belt, which is included with a mower.
I really liked that there is no shaft inside the trimmer handle, like gasoline models. The engine is located below, above the protective casing. The wire, which in the end, will not be dragged behind the trimmer, was incredibly pleased. So while you get a large extension cord from the barn, you will unwind 40 wires, you’ll get tired! During this time, the battery trimmer will have time to manage the weeds in the farthest corners. On 6 acres, this issue is not so relevant, but when you mow a large section of an electric scythe, it is a pity to spend so much time on twisting and promoting the wire.
The engine is conveniently located below. The trimmer itself for the grass is quite light. the daughter is controlled with him without problems. Photo by the author
The trimmer for Kärcher grass has a mowing strip width of the width. The width changes from 28 cm to 33 cm. But I did not have the need to use this adjustment.
The width of the mowing is regulated by the position of a restrictive knife, which is located on a protective casing. Photo by the author

How to choose the best battery trimmer for grass
Engine type: brilliant or brush (collector). Brastard engines usually provide a higher ratio of torque to weight, less mechanical wear and longer service life.
Battery voltage. There are models with voltage from 18 V to 54 V in the top of the battery trimmers. In terms of price and quality ratio, high.voltage are more profitable, since for the development of the same power as other models, less current is required.
Battery capacity. Briefly: the more. the better, especially if you need to treat a large plot of land. It will unpleasant to send a trimmer for the grass for recharging, having processed only half the lawn.
Battery charging time. the less, the better. Modern trimmers for grass are usually charged for 1-3 hours.
The number of engine speeds and width of mowing. The speed with which the trimmer for the grass will process the site depends on these parameters.
The weight. For a woman or an elderly person, the optimal weight of a trimmer for grass is 4-5 kg. Men will cope with a heavier unit weighing 6-8 kg.
Tool shape and length. Some users consider the curved form of garden technology more convenient to use, although a direct bar provides much better access when working under hard.to.reach places, such as bushes or garden furniture. Very high or stunted people should take into account the total length of the tool or the presence of an adjustable shaft to ensure comfortable work.

We have compiled a rating of the best batteries of batteries for grass.
To objectively assess the popularity of these devices, we focused on:
- Reviews and reputation at sites such as Yandex Market and the All.Temperses store;
- the possibility of acquisition without power sources.
Reviews and reputation show how customers evaluate this or that model, focusing on their own goals and objectives, for the solution of which they acquired a trimmer for grass. However, the situation in areas is different, so the technical characteristics are no less important, because they describe the potential capabilities of the device.
For example, a trimmer for grass with a lower location of the motor has a lower power, and its ventilation holes are quickly clogged with grass.
Therefore, it is suitable for mowing only small areas with low sparse grass.
Another important parameter is equipment. He, along with technical characteristics, describes the potential capabilities of the device. For example, one model is equipped with a powerful power source and two cutting tools, fishing line and knife, therefore it is universal and suitable for any grass.
Another model is equipped with a curved shaft or its engine is installed below, which means it can only work with a fishing line, so it is only suitable for mowing low, delicious vegetation. And which of the devices is better to choose? It depends on the vegetation on the site.
The ability to purchase a trimmer for grass without a power source is relevant for those who already have a battery technique of this brand, which means that you can reduce costs, because even a lot of devices can work from one source alternately.
Is it worth taking it?
The answer to this question lies in the financial plane. If a family wallet easily suffers such expenses, then the battery trimmer for grass will be useful in any house.
You can take it with you to the cottage, trim the lawn or cut the lawn from a neighbor or a friend, even on picnics, such a device will be useful. after all, sitting on the freshly chosen grass is much more pleasant than on a spicy multi.grass.
In addition, much depends on the presence of modern battery equipment from the same ruler in the house as the electrocos.
If such a technique, and therefore the battery, is in the house, then you can purchase the device noticeably cheaper, and buying a new power source of increased capacity will also be useful.
If the state of finances does not allow you to purchase a trimmer for grass and a power supply of an increased container (the best powerful battery trimmers for grass), and the site is overgrown with high grass and weeds, give preference to powerful gasoline analogues.
They will not only cost cheaper, but also better cope with such work.
In addition, the battery trimmer for small grass and with the lower engine arrangement complements the gasoline or network powerful device.
After all, with its help you can trim the edges of the lawns and cut the edges, and the cost of this device is low (the best small trimmers for battery grass).
Battery electric ships occupied a unique niche of the garden technique market, because they combine the advantages of gasoline and network models, but have their own disadvantages.
To determine whether the purchase of such a technique or its acquisition is justified, it is necessary to take into account both the real capabilities of the device and your financial capabilities.
