Recommend me a strimmer

Found 6th May 2008
As title says - got a budget of around £100 and am looking for either a decent mains powered one or even a petrol one cos of the size of our garden and length of grass in places...

So for those of you who are into your gardening I'd welcome your input!

pretty much an electric trimmer with the power of a petrol one
balance tool as well as the motor is nearer you and now at the bottom of the trimmer
At first I read it as a stripper!

How about this?

Bosch £24.99 electric. Really lightweight. That is really important! Homebase. If garden is massive, get an extention lead also.
Oops ignore me...

Looks decent enough, and less than a ton.

I would go with the petrol models.. especially in a large garden, cables are a bind.
get a goat ...
Does anyone have one that actually strims the whole garden without the little plastic thread coming out/off...it drives my insane I have to keep stopping and taking the plug out so I can take the bottom off and pull it through again, I've had 3 now and it happens on all of them!!! I spose a petrol one may eliminate that but they seem quite heavy and I have quite a lot to do.:x
