Introduction To Weed Whackers

Note:  I normally write comparisons of kitchen items or AVON products, but for now, I'm switching gears and hitting up on some necessities for Spring! Drop me a line and let me know what you think and if there's anything you'd like to hear about.  Hope you enjoy reading!

Anyone who grew up with a lawn would certainly remember being told to trim the grass around the trees, shrubs and flower beds during weekends. You probably used clippers, which are great for creating callouses on your hands.  A thing, few men find attractive on women.  Either way, it was a boring and tiring task, but somebody had to do it.

But just imagine trimming the grass with scissors. The task would be even more difficult. So whether you like it or not, meaning the deafening noise weed eaters or weed whackers make, they are made for a reason, and it's a good reason at that.

More than just a chore machine for teenagers, weed whackers help trim grass around those hard to reach places with a lawnmower quickly, easily, and if you know what you're doing - evenly. This is because of the revolving line under its mini-hood.

This line may be operated using a gas powered weed whacker or by using a electric powered whacker that either runs on a rechargeable battery or with an extension cord.

Weed whackers also come in different shapes and sizes. Usually, smaller and simpler ones are meant for small lawns of households. The larger and more powerful ones are used in larger yards like on farms and commercial areas.

Sure enough, weed eaters do a great job at making life easier when it comes to trimming grass. But they aren't used only for that purpose.  There's always that crazy guy out there who thinks they might make good trolling motors for their fishing boats.  Umm...don't try that.

So, if you're tired of using clippers to trim around the trees, shrubbery, etc. in your yard, you definitely need to invest in a good weed whacker.

Tomorrow, I'll be posting a special weed eater buying guide to help you be able to choose the right weed eater for you.  It's one you won't want to miss!  In the meantime, if you'd like to take a look at a couple gas powered weed eaters, check out my Gas Weed Eater Reviews.

Until then, make it a great day!
Little known fact about the author: Yo Coleman

Yo grew up on a 300 acre farm and really doesn't like thinking about weed eating (which was done with callous-making clippers) or mowing the lawn, since her parent's lawn was half the size of a football field, and in those days - she did it with a push mower.  Now she's back on the farm and is very grateful for a riding mower and weed eater, that sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
