If you're a homeowner with a small property to maintain, an entry-level gas string trimmer was designed with you in mind.
Entry-level models are more affordable and have a simpler design. They're built for around 2 hours per week for light jobs, which is more than time than you'd likely spend on a small property.
If you're interested in just trimming along your walkway and around the flower bed, an entry-level gas handheld string trimmer is the perfect fit for you.
Entry-level gas string trimmers don't offer the variety of features that mid-level and commercial grade trimmers do, because they're only meant to be used for a couple of hours per week.
For added comfort and options, you'll want to step up to a mid-grade trimmer. Entry-level gas trimmers are all about simple design and simple use.
They're often available with curved shafts, which help beginners trim more comfortably, and are ideal for occasional small trimming jobs.
