Electric or Cordless Line Trimmer Recommendations

12 years ago

Hello. I've been doing a bunch of research on various 'weed whacker' brands and styles out there, and have come to the conclusion that they are generally very spotty in reliability terms. I have a 1/4 acre lot that has lots of trees , shrubs, various borders, and fences that require I buy a line trimmer. Despite the number of obstacles, I'm looking at either an electric (corded) trimmer or cordless. I had a 2-stroke line trimmer years ago, and it was quite a pain to mess with. What brands and models of electric line trimmers have you all had success with?

I prefer a bump-fed spool, with a .08" line (but I'm not set in stone on either). B & D makes an 18v trimmer that's cordless and gets generally high marks on Amazon. Any thoughts? What have you all had success with?
