The Which? Best Buy award is given to
products with high total test scores that perform consistently well in
our rigorous lab tests and excel in all key areas.
We award the Energy Saver logo to
products that our testing shows are very energy efficient, meaning
they'll cost you less to run.
The Which? Don't Buy logo alerts you
to the products that performed extremely poorly in one or more key
areas of our tests.
How effective and quick the trimmer is at edging borders and trimming grass, and how well it coped with longer grass and weedy patches.
Line feed test
Does the line feed mechanism work effectively or does the line break and get lost within the spool?
How easy the trimmer is to set up, use and maintain.
Re-threading the line
How easy is it to access the line to retrieve the lost line or replace the line spool?
We check the price of Best Buys directly with the manufacturer at the time of publication. Prices may vary depending on where the product is available, and because seasonal products such as grass trimmers are often discounted at major high-street retailers. The price we quote will be the maximum retail price, though you may be able to find the product cheaper elsewhere.
