When you're looking to work on a budget, a multi-tasking tool can save you countless time and money. The mower cuts and mulches grass and helps clear the lawn of leaves. It can be a chipper or even help remove snow. Grass trimmers are no different. With just a few attachments, it'll be a multi-tasking machine. And it's less expensive to purchase attachments than specialized equipment, plus you don't have several machines taking up space in the garage. So what attachments should you consider purchasing? The edger, hedge trimmer, brush cutter and blower attachments will take care of most of your trimming needs.
An edger attachment for your grass trimmer does for your lawn what an iron does for your clean clothes. A gas trimmer will chop up weeds and tall grass that a mower can't reach, but an edger attachment will create crisp, clean lines along the landscape. An edger is all about finishing touches. When purchasing an edger attachment for a grass trimmer, look for one that's compatible with most trimmers. That way, if you ever have to purchase a new trimmer, you won't also have to buy a new edger. The same holds true for all attachments.
