EGO Commercial String Trimmer Review

EGO Commercial String Trimmer STX3800 Review

EGO Commercial String Trimmer Set to Challenge Stihl in the Pro Market EGO turned its attention to the commercial OPE market a while back, and we spent some time comparing these tools to other Pro-targeted models. The EGO Commercial string trimmer has some familiar design components but with a design shift that clearly sets it […]

EGO PowerLoad String Trimmer with Telescoping Aluminum Shaft

EGO PowerLoad String Trimmer Adds Adjustability for Height The EGO Power+ PowerLoad String Trimmer with Telescoping Aluminum Shaft does something unique. Unlike most trimmers that let you place the handle (once) for comfort, this trimmer adjusts. A telescoping handle moves to quickly match the height of the user. Of course, that’s not all it does […]

Ryobi 18V HP Brushless 13-inch String Trimmer Edger P20120VNM

Ryobi Switches From Trimmer to Edger With a Twist of the Shaft The Ryobi P20120VNM 18V HP Brushless 13-inch String Trimmer Edger joins a long line of products pulling double-duty on lawn care tasks. This makes some sense as a tool like this case definitely saves time when you don’t have commercial-level amounts of edging […]

EGO Powerhead String Trimmer edger pole saw kit

EGO 56V Power Head Attachment System Review

Having already reviewed most of the EGO string trimmers, getting our hands on the EGO 56V Power Head attachment system seemed a logical next step. It encompasses so many great products in one. You get one power head to operate a string trimmer, edger, pole chainsaw, and much more. Pros Robust system of compatible attachments […]

Makita XRU18 18V LXT X2 String Trimmer

Makita XRU18 18V LXT X2 String Trimmer Review

Makita XRU18 String Trimmer Targets Gas-Replacing Power Makita has an intentional focus with their battery-powered lawn care line to “bracket the market”. In other words, they want to provide legitimate options to cover everyone’s needs. The Makita XRU18 18V X2 string trimmer is a great example. This model targets class-leading power for professionals who need […]

CRAFTSMAN V20 Outdoor Power Tools

Craftsman Adds OPE to 20V Battery Platform Craftsman just expanded their V20 line, including a new low-profile lawn mower, handheld blower, string trimmer, and hedge trimmer. They even added in a 10-inch mini chainsaw and what looks like a really handy cordless shear for good measure. These tools work really well for those with smaller […]

ECHO SRM-410X Straight Shaft Trimmer

Echo Brush Cutter Power in a String Trimmer Body We’ve all seen professional landscapers rip the guards off their trimmers, let out tons of string and go to town. Manufacturers kinda hate that—well, except Echo apparently. The new Echo SRM-410X Straight Shaft Trimmer slings out a 20″ cutting swath. And it’s designed with enough horsepower […]

Makita XRU18 1V X2 String Trimmer Video Review

Makita XRU18 String Trimmer Video Review

Before we began testing out the latest battery-powered string trimmers for our Best Weedeater Roundup, we expected to put the existing X2 Makita XRU15 side-by-side against some of the newer models on the market. To our surprise, Makita sent us a newer model, the XRU18 string trimmer. This new flagship Makita X2 weedeater has just about […]

Makita XRU15 String Trimmer

Makita XRU15 Battery String Trimmer Review

Makita’s Pro-Focused String Trimmer Balances Power and Runtime It wasn’t too long ago that we got the chance to test out Makita’s top-of-the-line XRU18 string trimmer. In that review, we had a hard time finding too many things wrong with the trimmer, particularly from a power perspective. But, if we could make a critique about […]
