Trimmer’s heads include a cutting element, a special rod, a propeller and a control mechanism with a handle. The knot is intended for grass cutting on the yard and garden plots. The compactness of the device and the convenience of control allow you to do a quality job in the most inaccessible places. With the help of this unit, you can also prune shrubs and young garden. Adjustable elements allow you to set the required cutting height of grass on lawns and grounds.
When choosing trimmer, heads pay attention to the following parameters:
- Power rating
- Mass of the device.
- Type of food.
- The location of the engine, which is the top or bottom.
- Variety of cutting parts.
- Barbell type.
Classification by type of filing line
Husqvarna trimmer heads are subdivided according to the way they feed the line, namely:
- Manual type. Submission of fishing line in this embodiment occurs by a mechanical method. To extend the cord, you will need to stop the operation of the device and extend the edges of the cutting part with your hands.
- Semiautomatic. Such instances allow the replacement of the cord without touching the head of the earth’s surface. This option is feasible with the help of a special key and an anchor mechanism, which makes it possible to lengthen the working part of the fishing line due to centrifugal action. It is important that the whole procedure is carried out with the unit turned on.
- Automatic trimmer heads They are distinguished by the fact that during their operation, cord lengthening is performed in automatic mode after a decrease in engine speed. Submission of fishing line is carried out in normal mode.
From the above mechanisms, the standard version is not very practical and convenient. Automatic variations are also not popular due to the high consumption of fishing line. The best version will be semi-automatic execution.
Criterias of choice:
When purchasing Champion trim heads and other models, it is necessary to focus on the purpose of using the unit. For a large area with a flat lawn surface, it is better to use light and not very powerful modifications. If it is intended to handle a huge suburban area, it is reasonable to take a model with a high power rating.
The selection of the cutting element also plays a significant role in the final functionality of the unit. The working part is a special fishing line or working knives. It takes into account the rigidity and density of plants. The universal trimmer head will allow treating most of the vegetation. However, it is not always distinguished by its durability and efficiency.
The considered device is a special configuration coil, which is equipped with an internal cord. It can have various sizes. It is wound on the inner element of the spool up to 15 meters long.
The edges of the line are set at a certain distance for the possibility of work. When hit on solid objects (stones, trees, etc.), the work item is destroyed. Depending on the type of fixture, the heads may have a different configuration. Universal analogue is suitable for most modifications. It is due to the possibility of using several special adapters.
Refueling fishing line
By this parameter, trim heads can be divided into two categories:
- Quick charge. On such models when winding the cord is not required to disassemble the coil. One edge of the next filled line is wound up in a reel and wound several times. After selecting the desired length of the material is cut.
- Heads collapsible type. For their refuelling, it is required to remove the reel from the unit, then remove the used fishing line and wind a new analogue.
The working head contains special pointers in the form of arrows. They are responsible for the direction of movement of the working part during rotation. If necessary, winding the fishing line in the direction of rotation of the shaft, turn it to a certain position. An excessive amount of cord is fraught with equipment failure.
If it is impossible to wind the cord after the impact on the semi-automatic head, winding should be performed again. Most likely, the user has not pulled out the ends of the forest from the nests.
Consider briefly the representatives of the most famous manufacturers of the spool represented on the domestic market:
- Trimmer head of Oleo-Mac M-10 / 11.25. This model belongs to the professional semi-automatic options used in the operation of the trimmer. The diameter of the working part. 13 centimetres, is characterized by a quick dressing line.
- “Husqvarna T-45H”. has an open eye, easy supply of the cord. Work items can be changed individually. Increased reliability and reduced wear provides a bearing surface with a ball bearing.
- “Husqvarna T-35”. This model is a head with automatic cord feeding (just enough to lightly hit the coil on the ground). There is a “tap and go” function.
- Champion. Modification ET 1002KA refers to the average price category. Differs in simplicity in dismantling, strong vibration is not felt during the work.
- DDE trimmer head. The Win 6 type is designed for grass mowing with a 2-3 mm fishing line. Suitable for electric and gasoline mowers with a working shaft with a diameter of 10 mm. The maximum permissible revolutions on the shaft. 10 thousand rotations per minute.
- Autocut C-4-2. This head is suitable for trimmer “Stihl”, used for mowing grass and cleaning the territory. There is an automatic adjustment of the length of the working strings in contact with the head of the ground. The model is compatible with a fishing line section of 2 mm.
When meeting the cord with hard objects, it stops sharply, as a result of which the forest gets inside the device. She lies under the spool and sticks together. To remedy the situation, you need to stop the work and lay the line again. As prevention of such inconvenience, it is recommended to treat the forest with silicone grease before installation in the coil.
In the device trimmer head Autocut, as well as other semi-automatic models, distinguish two parts of the main element: the body and spool. In both details, spring mechanisms are provided.
The spool can be performed in several configurations:
- Modifications with one section. In this case, both edges of the fishing line are wound together.
- Models with a pair of compartments. In them, each edge is wound on a specific element. This design is more efficient, avoids tangling the forest and sintering.
It is quite possible to redesign a single-section spool into a version with two cameras. It will require a solid plate, from which a circle is cut with a diameter identical to the thickness of the spool. This part is in free movement. Then a cut is made on the ring, mounted on the head and fixed using adhesive tape or glue.
The universal trim head can be equipped with holes in the amount of from two to four pieces. They are opposite each other. From these elements, ends intended for mowing are derived. In addition to these types of the spool has a head, designed for a specific size of the forest. In such coils, the number of whiskers increases to a dozen. Among users of such devices, opinions are divided.
Some consider this unit more efficient. Others are confident that the consumption of fishing line will be significantly higher with a questionable improvement in the quality of work. Also, to replace the forest will need to interrupt the process. When choosing a trimmer, consider the terrain features and vegetation characteristics. After that, you can choose the option that is best suited in a given situation.
