new strimmer advice
« on: October 17, 2007, 22:33 »
Hi everyone just need to pick you're brains I need a new strimmer but am faced with  lots of choice . I have around £100 but that is negotiable i need it for some pretty long grass cutting i cut a number of unused plots on our site and the old one i had out of a skip has finally spluttered and died. What is the difference beetween brushcutter/strimmer? i also take care of some family members gardens so would like a hedge trimmer attatchment to make it easier have seen a ryobi on ebay that seems to do the job what do you think ehh??? :?

if you have a few spanners take the carb apart and replace the filter,I put money on the fact the stimmer will burst into life with the ability to drink. :shock:
always have a target

I am a mere girly bandoboy, but our petrol brushcutter/strimmer is very useful.  We use the blades for the heavier work and the strimmer line for the lighter stuff.  It's a Ryobi - got it from Screwfix, next day delivery, but they do have outlets in various towns.

the blades will happily tackle brambles, and even took a big chunk out of some buried metal.

have never heard of a hedgetrimmer attachment though, but then again it's you lads who know these things.

Hi Bandoboy
the ryobi you mention is exactly what you need for the job in hand.  They have many attachments that are more than competent for there purpose.  they are not for the pro but are more than adequate for the more than keen Gardiner. they get the thumbs up from me.



not organic    but still a nice bloke
