Buying guides

Grass trimmer & brushcutter buying guide

Grass trimmer & brushcutter buying guide

Add a finishing touch to your lawn by cutting long grass and trimming the edges with a grass trimmer or a brushcutter.

Lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, grass trimmers are great for accessing areas that your lawnmower can’t reach. They’re also ideal for tidying around fragile areas of the garden such as around plants, trees or the borders of your lawn. A brushcutter is a heavier weight and more powerful machine, suitable for clearing overgrown grass, weeds, brambles and small hedges.

There are a number of types and models available and choosing one can be difficult. So let's breakdown the options for buying a new or replacement grass trimmer or brushcutter.

Before you begin

When choosing a grass trimmer or brushcutter, ask yourself the following questions to help decide on the best option for you.

What will you be cutting?

Firstly, think about what type of grass you'll be cutting most often. Will it be a grass lawn, or coarser, more overgrown vegetation? For trimming short to medium-length grass, tidying edges and reaching places where the lawnmower can’t, a grass trimmer is the best option. For long and overgrown grass, weeds and small trees, consider a brushcutter. Or if you're not sure what you'll be cutting, or are likely to have both grass and brush to cut, look out for machines that are both grass trimmers and brushcutters.

Knowing what you’ll be cutting will also determine how powerful you need your grass trimmer or brushcutter to be.

How big is your garden?

If you have a large garden or patch of land, or plan to trim far away from your house, consider an option that doesn’t have to be plugged into the mains, giving greater freedom of use and movement. Similarly, a lightweight option will help you stay comfortable for the duration of the task.

Also, consider how densely packed with plants your outdoor space is. For example, if you need to work around a lot of flowers, bushes or trees, a trimmer with a smaller head will allow you to do this without damaging them as easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bought this about two months ago, really good bit of equipment. Very powerful was able to clear garden in know time. Only downside was when I needed replacement cord for strimmer to which b&q had none.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good powerful unit, weak joint. Got the unit today and it has successfully hacked through my jungle of a garden, however the clamp that holds the 2 parts together is a major weak point. I have had to bodge it with a bolt to keep the bottom from twisting. When it stays aligned properly this machine is a beast and will cut just about anything.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Entirely Satisfactory At first I thought it was great, easy to assemble and I had it in action in no time. I did some good cutting on the first outing and when I went to use it for the second time I was as happy as can be cutting through the brambles until the shaft twisted and I almost lost my grip - very dangerous! I had a look at the machine but I could not get the bottom part of the shaft to sit firmly in the upper part as something appeared to have broken. Looks like this brush cutter has a bit of a design flaw. I took it back and had my money refunded, so I have no problem there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product Just bought this product today. Was easy to assemble. However, it was falling apart within a minute of use. The vibration is too high. Will be returning this for a full refund.
