What do you call yours – Weed Eater, Strimmer or Brushcutter?
A garden trimmer, also called a “Strimmer” or “Weed Eater” or “Brushcutter” is a garden tool which uses a flexible monofilament or nylon line or a blade for cutting grass and other plants near objects, or on steep or irregular terrain. It consists of a cutting head at the end of a shaft either bent or straight and with a handle or handles and sometimes a shoulder strap.
There are many types and configurations ranging from;
- Domestic electric powered with bent shaft
- 18cc with bent shaft
- 18-26cc Two stroke engine with D handle and straight shaft
- 33-53cc Two stroke engine with bull horn handles and straight shaft
- And larger types with four stroke engines.
Most have Kawasaki two stroke engines but all have their own branded gearbox and drive parts.
At planet-spares.com we receive numerous queries say for a set of gears for a Kawasaki 24cc strimmer more than likely required due to not greasing the gearbox regularly but it is the machine brand that is key to getting the correct replacement gear set.
The machine brand is nearly always identified by a sticker on the drive shaft. Over time this can wear away so our advice is to keep the user manual and record the model and serial number in it and where you bought it for future reference.
