Top Petrol Garden Strimmer Review 2018



Features To Consider When Comparing The Best Petrol Strimmers

When it comes to comparing the best petrol strimmers in 2018, there are several key features and properties that you need to focus your attention on. With that in mind, in this short post, we are going to briefly discuss some of the key properties of an excellent garden strimmer.

Motor Power

The power of a strimmer’s motor determines how good the device will be at cutting through tough grass and plants. Also, a higher-powered motor is less likely to overheat, as you will not be using it at maximum capacity all of the time.

Noise Level

Unfortunately, petrol strimmers are generally very noisy, however, by comparing the dB rating of each device, you may be able to find a device that doesn’t wake up everyone in the street during operation. If you live in a rural area, you might not think that the dB rating is important, however, it’s important to keep in mind that without the right ear protection, some petrol strimmers can cause damage to your hearing.



The weight of a strimmer is an important factor to take into consideration as it will impact how easy the device is to manoeuvre and how comfortable it is to use for long periods of time. Unfortunately, heavy-duty devices are unlikely to be lightweight, but there are a few petrol devices around that aren’t too heavy for average use times.

Fuel Capacity

If you need to strim a very large area without constantly refilling the petrol tank, you need to look for a device that has a large onboard fuel tank. Unfortunately, carrying extra fuel around can add to the weight of the device, so you may prefer a strimmer with a small onboard fuel tank and an easy to use refill mechanism.
