What are the best weed eaters of 2011?Well, that depends on who you ask. Everyone has different lawns types and sizes and different wants and needs from their weed eater. So, what might be the best weed eater for one person might not be the best for another. Lets take a look at a few of the top weed eaters in different categories.
The best commercial grade weed eater is the Shindaiwa T231.This model offers plenty of power and is quick to start every time. Not only that, it is durable and will last several mowing seasons. In addition to the Shindaiwa, any commercial grade trimmer from Stihl is a good pick and won't leave you disappointed.
The best homeowner gas weed eater is the Hitachi grass trimmer.This unit is just a slight notch down from the Shindaiwa and Stihl. And, it costs about $100 less. The only small complaint this trimmer received is that the on and off switch is located in an awkward spot.
As for the best battery powered BLACK+DECKER String Trimmer, my vote would go to the Black And Decker NST2018 Grass Hog.This weed eater is only intended for light trimming and edging. If that is what you need it for, you won't be disappointed. If you own other Black And Decker rechargable battery tools, you can use the batteries for the trimmer.
And, finally the best electric trimmer I have used in 2011 is the Black and Decker ST1000.It's impossible to argue with the price, costing less than $30. This weed eater is only intended for small, light jobs. There is hardly any maintenance required and it's easy to store.
