Strimmers and Brushcutters

We carry a wide range of mains electric, cordless and petrol powered trimmers and brushcutters by manufacturers Echo, Ego, Flymo, Mitox, Mountfield, Stiga and Stihl, ranging in price from £55 to £969.

Electric machines are suitable for small gardens where a tidy edge or light weed trimming is required. These machines vary in power from 300w to 1000w.

Cordless machines are also suitable for smaller gardens and are convenient to use as they are not hindered by a lead. Some of the powerful new products are able to perform as well as petrol powered products. Prices range from £109.00 to over £1000 for commercial products.

Petrol machines can be broken down into two main groups:

  • Trimmers – which usually have a bent shaft and the cutting head is driven by a flexible drive shaft. These machines are usually only fitted with a nylon line head and are suitable for edge trimming and light duty weed clearance. Prices range from £129 to £259.

  • Brushcutters – which have a straight shaft and the cutting head is usually driven by a solid drive shaft which makes it possible to fit a metal cutting blade for heavier cutting work. Prices range from £159 to £969 but quality of build also varies widely and it is important to obtain advice as to the best machine for your requirements.
