How to Use String Trimmer Attachments for Versatility

By  | String Trimmer Product Expert

Over the years, your garage or tool shed fills up with many different kinds of lawn and garden tools.

Instead of buying a string trimmer, a cultivator, a hedge trimmer, and a pole saw, why not just invest more wisely in an assortment of string trimmer attachments?

Attachment capable string trimmers enable you to use the same engine to power all of these tools. This way, you can save space and money while minimizing maintenance tasks.

Leaf Blower AttachmentBlower Attachment
Blower attachments convert your string trimmer into a leaf blower by utilizing the drive shaft of the trimmer to spin a blower fan in a specially designed housing that generates air flow of up to 145 mph.

Nozzle adapters on some models enable you to switch between concentrated air flow for hard to reach places or more broad air flow for larger spaces. Some models are designed for specific string trimmer brands, however there are more universal attachments that will fit various makes and models of attachment-capable string trimmers.

Edger AttachmentEdger Attachment
Edging with a string trimmer can be kind of tricky for those without a lot of experience. Having an edger attachment enables you to switch from trimming to edging with a separate head to get the job done right with more ease.

There are brand-specific edger attachments, and there are the more universal TrimmerPlus versions. They all have guide wheels and durable metal blades for cutting the edge straight and consistent.

Cultivator AttachmentCultivator Attachment
Often times, cultivators are needed only 2-3 times per year. If you're looking for a low-cost means of cultivating that won't take up a lot of space or add extra maintenance to your schedule, a cultivator attachment is the right way to go.

They have strong, durable gear boxes, and the tines on most models will cultivate up to 9" deep. They're perfect for stirring amendments into the top layer of your garden soil, or even to help remove and control weeds between plants. If you're tired of turning top soil with a hand shovel, but you don't want another large piece of equipment that needs to be maintained, this is the ideal attachment for you.

Brush Cutter AttachmentBrush Cutter Attachment
When you're trimming tall grasses and weeds, there are times you may come across thicker growth, reeds, or small saplings that your string trimmer can't quite handle. In these situations, it's good to have a brush cutter. Brush cutters utilize heavy-duty gear boxes that can handle rugged metal blades and tougher cutting conditions.

However, you likely don't want to lug around a separate brush cutter just for those occasional tough spots. It's much easier to just bring an attachment with you and switch out heads when necessary. There are fewer options for these attachments, but you can still get the more universal TrimmerPlus version that fits various makes and models of attachment-capable string trimmers.

Pole Saw AttachmentPole Saw Attachment
Sometimes, as you're trimming weeds or grasses around trees, you may notice a dead limb that needs to be trimmed. Obviously your string trimmer isn't going to be capable of cutting through a tree limb, but a pole saw attachment will change that.

Adding a pole saw attachment to your string trimmer can extend your reach by up to 11 feet, and enable you to cut through up to 6- or 9-inch tree limbs.

Hedge Trimmer Attachment
Hedge Trimmer AttachmentHave the nicest looking home on the block with clean-squared hedges. There are various makes and models of hedge trimmer attachments available to fit most brands and styles of attachment-capable string trimmers. They're double-sided and corrosion resistant to provide top-notch performance for years to come.

This attachment just makes great sense. When you're string trimming along your hedges, why not have an attachment readily available for trimming the hedges as well? Simply switch from string trimmer to hedge trimmer with the same motor. They typically offer tool-free installation so you can easily switch between tools without having to return to your tool bench.
