Advantages: Easy control, comfortable grip, line feed system
Disadvantages: Cutting line can run out quick if not used corectly
Summer is finally here and I can finally start to work in the back garden again.
Don't misunderstand me, I'm not a landscaper, but I do like keeping the grass under control, trimming the sides, just basically giving the garden a hair cut...well I cant cut my hair anymore can I.
My black and Decker reflex trim and edge has lasted me for absolutely years and she isn't showing any signs of going out anytime soon (fingers crossed).
The lawn mower is the main equipment that cuts down those over grown grass hairs and weeds that start to also come through, but it can only do so much. Then here it comes, the saver of the garden, the one that ads that finishing touch, that perfect trim that turns mess to masterpiece.
If you let your hair get long it looks fine, the next time you go in and let then shave your hair and not do the sides it doesn't look so good now does it, but when you clean it up with the trimmers that's the finishing touch.
It's the same with your garden.
Shopping at Homebase was completely baffling, trying to pick out the perfect trimmer (aka Weed Whacker) was so daunting because there was so many to choose from, why does there have to be so much choice.
When I searched on Google for a good trimmer and one that is reliable I saw a lot of people rating the Black and Decker very highly and decided to go with that brand, and have not looked back since.
The Black and Decker trimmer is a forest green with a soft grip handle giving both your hands good placement on this trimmer, to have complete control over its movement providing a useful and handy "line feed system reflex plus" for when that cutting line gets too short it extends it back out to it's programmed specifications providing you with a thick strong line, the power is a whopping 350W (when you pull the trigger to start the motor you feel a slight vibrations in your hands from the power that it generates), the amount of line you get supplied within the box is 2 x 6 meters, so when you work out exactly how to use your trimmer and just get comfortable with it and how best to trim your garden, the amount of line that is provided lasts a long while. And the last and final thing is you are provided with a integral edging guide that is attached at the base of the trimmer by the cutting line.
While using this I would say this best cuts the edge of the grass and the weeds really well, but for the thicker stuff I would say to use your shears or something of that kind just because even though the trimmer can handle the thicker stuff you may find you are going through the cutting line like money at a casino.
This gets the main job done using the guide as you twist and turn it to get that perfect cut. With there being two firm handles to hold on too there really is no reason for it to slip or turn without your knowing, moving the trimmer around your garden has never been more simpler.
You can get this Black And Decker Reflex Trim n Edge GI540GGB for around £80 but it always depends on where you shop from, I did get this a little while back so it could be cheaper anyway.
I don't think I would go anywhere else for a trimmer, Black and Decker have impressed me, when I eventually have to replace this one I will be reaching for the new and improved Black and Decker Trimmer, but at the minute my one is like Hercules....no not a demi-god but it's not far off.
Summary: The best trimmer a garden could have, "I don't garden without it"
