Grass trimmers: How to buy the best grass trimmer Corded electric grass trimmers
Electric or corded grass trimmers come with a power cable attached and plug into mains power. They’re useful near the house or if you have a small garden and don’t mind using an extension lead. They’re generally the cheapest option.
The more powerful ones will handle long grass and rough vegetation such as nettles and weeds. Make sure you use an RCD adaptor with an electric grass trimmer if the socket for the garden isn’t already protected.
Pros Cheapest option, perfect for neat edges
Cons Cable and extension leads can be cumbersome
