Is there a strimmer without string?

United Kingdom Gb

Hello all, I have about has enough of strimmers & cannot seem to sort out the string for them. The last straw happened when I strimmed my leg as the string flew out - very painful. Does a strimmer exist that does not use string & has a permanent blade? Many thanks.



There are metal and rigid plastic cutters for strimmers, but you should wear protective clothing at all times.

Try the garden centre or sometimes a hardware store. Or you could always switch to shears...

Yes you can get them at a good garden centre or Google strimmers for cordless types, there is a good selection on various websites.
