An Electric Strimmer that doesnt constantly snap its strim cord !

7
Found 8th May 2008
Do these exist under £50

My Dad has already tried Flymo Mini Strim (Whole cord used in 5 mins), Black and Decker GL315 (Same) and now the Bosch ART 23 easy strim (Same)

These are all rubbish. He has a small garden so not really worth spending much and he only strims/edges grass not difficult plants but the cords just are not as good as they used to be.

He is going to try the Spear Jackson from Woolworths. I'll keep you posted but would appreciate some input.

Help or I'll have to dig and the shears. lol

Thanks gang

Try a plastic cable tie...............find the size to fit.........pull tight around the spindle........hey presto............but be careful...........these could cut your toes off......................but wont break...............

What material is your father strimming?

I did 2 gardens with the Bosch over the weekend...

The cord never broke once!

Is he strimming the fence?

He used all the cord................and now we cant find the dog......................

Should have gone to Specsavers

Panic over................we found our beloved old english sheepdog.........................trouble is it now looks like a poodle....................

Its Ok I've got a plan
Im going to buy a cement mixer and cover his garden over with these second rate toilet strimmers underneath !

I've just took one of them useless Flymo thingies back to B&Q - The cord auto winders are useless!

I replaced it with a "Bosch ART 26 Easytrim Accu" £49.99

It has those proper plastic blades you see on hover mowers - it even comes with 10 blades in the box.

I tackled the 'difficult' lawn and managed 30 mins off the included battery and I used 4 blades - which are very easy to replace when they break compared to when the stupid cord twists up!
