Having the right gas powered trimmer is a great way to keep your yard looking its best. Because you aren’t restrained by a chord like their electric cousins, there’s more room to do a variety of different jobs, both big and small. Getting to know a few techniques will come in handy and get you the results you’re looking for.
Both tall grass and weeds are no problem for these gas powered trimmers, but you can get bogged down and even stall the trimmer unless you’ve got a plan. Start cutting from the top of any large overgrowth and work your way down. This prevents long grass and weeds from tangling around the head.
No matter if you are doing a quick tidy-up job, or clearing out a neglected area, you’ll need to protect yourself accordingly. Make sure you have a helmet, long pants, boots and goggles to protect yourself. Remember that when you switch over to a metal blade for saplings and brush, the blade guard needs to stay in place to prevent damage that can occur if you accidentally hit rocks, posts or other obstacles.
When you’re done for the day, a few simple maintenance procedures come in handy. Check the gas level and wipe off any debris. Some trimmers need to stored upright so that nothing leaks, so be sure to check your owner’s manual for that and any other maintenance requirements.
