GRASS TRIMMER

FAQ

A grass trimmer can be used in many different ways, but the most common technique is a sweeping movement. You swipe the trimmer's head in front of you a bit above ground level, from side to side, and vary the width as you move around the sections you trim. You should also keep the trimmer head as horizontal as possible to get as even a result as possible. Fold the jumper down at the front of the head to ensure that you do not go against sensitive objects with the wire/plastic knives. The jumper is there to create a safe distance.

Changing the thread on grass trimmers can be a bit tricky if you haven't done it before, but once you've done it once and learned the process, it becomes a quick and efficient task. Here are step-by-step instructions:

  1. Turn off the trimmer and open the lid of the nozzle where the wire is located. In some cases, you can remove the entire nozzle first to get a better position when refilling it.
  2. Note how the old wire coil is positioned, then remove it.
  3. Attach your new wire to one of the holes. Next, start spinning around the wire with a firm and even grip around the centre part. When you're done, use the piece that's left and pass it through the second hole (if you have one with double wires, or attach it to the wire bracket.
  4. If you have loosened the nozzle, click it back on the trimmer head.

The grass trimmers today usually comes with a battery-powered motor because it makes them both lighter, quieter and you avoid the exhaust gases. But there are still grass trimmers that are more powerful, and these can then run on gasoline. They usually have a two-stroke engine, which means they should have oil-mixed gasoline. The most common option is to choose an alkylate gasoline. You can buy ready-made mixtures if you do not want to mix yourself.
