This article will review the top 10 trimmers you can purchase online.
It would be hard to imagine a world of landscaping and yard-work absent a good, quality trimmer. While trimmers take care of those fine edges that lawnmowers and other yard equipment simply can’t reach, cordless trimmers, in particular, provide the utmost versatility in the task. There are many cordless trimmers out there for those interested in having one for themselves. However, not all provide the best experience for the money. Follow along as we review our top picks.
1. Black and Decker LST201 10″ Trimmer/Edger
Black and Decker, a name long synonymous with affordable utility in household tools, brings us this top cordless trimmer/edger unit. This cordless option is part of the greater 20V series by the company and provides a solid battery life to work with. Converting easily between edger and trimmer, the LST201 also features a reliable auto-feed spool and easy height adjustments for ultimate user comfort. Two years of warranty coverage undoubtedly round things out nicely as well.
2. WORX WG163 GT 3.0 PowerShare 12″ Cordless String Trimmer and Edger
WORX is known for its many outdoor cordless tools, and the company’s model WG163 trimmer/edger is certainly among those performers. A 12″ trim area gets a wide swath of work done while easy conversion to a wheeled edger adds even greater versatility. At only 5.3 lbs, this unit certainly doesn’t wear you out, and we really like the inclusion of not one but two, strong, 20V batteries as well as the charger with each unit.
3. Greenworks 12-Inch 24V Cordless String Trimmer/Edger
The 12-Inch 24V Cordless String Trimmer/Edger by Greenworks is another top pick in affordable trimmers right now. A 12″ cut area and easy-pivot head really help at the tool’s service end, while a 24V powerhouse of a battery assures that the entire job gets done. Additional winning points here include a solid, locking, telescoping shaft design, a reliable auto-feed line system, and an overall excellent ergonomic design for its class.
4. Sun Joe HJ605CC Cordless 2-in-1 Grass Shear + Hedge Trimmer w/Extension Pole
Sun Joe provides us with a unique and impressive grass shear and hedge trimmer combination tool with its HJ605CC. Users of this unit can enjoy the option to use the handheld hedge trimmer or easily convert back to a grass shearing trimmer function at the end of an ergonomic extension pole with rollers. While this unit is not designed for long stretches of traditional weed-whacking trimmer duty, it is ideal for the niche, small areas found all around most landscapes.
5. Earthwise LST02010 20-Volt 10-Inch Cordless String Trimmer
In the class of cheap yet effective trimmers today, the LST02010 20-Volt 10-Inch Cordless String Trimmer by Earthwise is another top pick. Here, we have a telescoping trimmer with a super-reliable lock-down joint, a handy swivel cutting guard for optional guarding, and a handle that also adjusts quickly and easily without common slippage issues. 20 volts of lasting battery power and the included quick charging station make things even sweeter.
6. WORX WG184 40V 13″ Cordless Grass Trimmer/Edger
WORX hits our list of the top trimmers yet again, this time with what is arguably the most overall “heavy-duty” trimmer on this list. The WG184 cuts a large, 13″ area and comes equipped with a patented, in-line edging and command-feed system. It is also powered by a dual battery port system that provides a commanding and combined 40V of push at the head. Two batteries, a 1-hour charging dock, and precision speed control like that of a gas-powered unit also help to make this particular unit the best choice in Trimmers.
7. CRAFTSMAN CMCST910M1 20V String Trimmer/Edger
In again, at number seven on our list is Craftsman – this time with it is model CMCST910M1 20V String Trimmer/Edger. This unit is truly built tough in all aspects and works off of a patented, high-efficiency motor system for even more longevity. A 13″ cutting swath, 20V of long-lasting battery power, multiple trigger speed settings, and a highly comfortable overall design make this trimmer-edger combo one of our hands-down favorites.
8. Greenworks PRO ST80L210 16-Inch 80V Cordless String Trimmer
Greenworks was not playing around when it designed this trimmer unit. The ST80L210 Pro model is powered by a hulk of an 80V battery pack and cuts an astounding 16″ cutting swath without skips, lags, or bog-downs. The trimmer’s split shaft system allows for extra compact storage relative to the unit’s overall size, and a brushless, patented motor system assures longevity and power without any sacrifices. Even more impressive is this massive battery’s ability to charge in about 30 minutes using the included rapid charger.
9. Makita XRU02Z 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer
The Makita XRU02Z delivers a solid and comfortable trimming experience built specifically with versatility in mind. At just 6.4 lbs total operating weight and with its relatively compact size, it’s easy to do precision trim work without getting tired or feeling too unwieldy for accurate cutting head placement. A 7,800-RPM cut and 18 volts of Makita-quality battery power also help to make the job a breeze.
10. TECCPO TDLT02G 20V Lithium-Ion Trimmer/Edger
TECCPO does it right with its model TDLT02G trimmer-edger. This 20V workhorse gets it done with a 12″ cutting area, a 90-degree swivel-ready cutting head, and a total of five adjustment points so that anybody can achieve comfortable use. Additionally, TEPPCO provides buyers of this top trimmer product with a 24-month warranty as well as a double set of trimmer line spools for even more end-user convenience.
