  • Power & Battery
    One of the most important features to consider when purchasing an electric string trimmer is how much power you need to accomplish the type of work you do. We looked for weed whackers that have high amps for corded models and high-voltage batteries for cordless grass trimmers. The more power a weed trimmer has, the tougher the grass and weeds it can tackle. We evaluated and compared cordless and corded electric string trimmers and found that regardless of the power source, if you choose a trimmer with enough power, you can trim efficiently.

    Craftsman 12 in. Electric Weed Trimmer-Take the Cord, Leave the Battery and Forget the Hassle When all you have is a smaller to mid-sized yard, don’t waste time mixing oil and gas or waiting for the battery to charge - instead, break out the cord and plug into the Craftsman 4 Amp Electric Trimmer 12inch. With this powerful string trimmer, you'll get the kind of power that leaves battery operated trimmers in the dust and the kind of convenience that keep gas powered weed whackers sitting in the shed. Designed for practically sized properties, this weed trimmer packs a powerful punch, drawing only the energy it needs to complete tough jobs without producing clouds of toxic smoke. Plug this string trimmer in and see how the 9,000 RPM operating speed produces enough velocity to slice through the densest stands of weeds, grass and overgrowth. Lightweight, without a battery or heavy engine to haul around, you move quickly, cord in tow, getting all your yard work done fast.

  • A dedicated edging position makes it easier to get a precise cut against sidewalks without having to hold your trimmer at an odd, uncomfortable angle. Straight-shaft weed trimmers give you more distance from what you are cutting, keeping you safer. Safety is an important consideration when choosing an electric trimmer, and we looked to see if the trimmers in our lineup included safety devices that kept cords from getting in the way, as well as if the starter switch was protected from accidentally starting.
