The term garden tool is referring to the different tools that are designed to be used for landscapes or gardens, and it is believed that these tools tend to overlap the other horticulture and agriculture tools. There are basically two types of garden tools, namely the hand tools and the power tools. Up to this day and age, the hand tools are still being used by the landscapers and gardeners, and they are using or operating these kinds of tools in a manual manner. The most common examples of the hand tools are hoe, pruning shears, grass shears, loppers, fork, axe, shovel, trowel, rake, fork, spade, and sickle. The power tools, on the other hand, can be used and operated with the use of an additional power source and mechanism, such as electric motors. The most popular examples of the power tools used for gardening include leaf sweepers, the lawn mower, mini-tractors, chainsaws, cultivators, string trimmer, irrigation sprinklers, leaf blowers, trenchers, hedge trimmers, and lawn aerators.
One of the most popular power tools, in this day and age, is the string trimmer, and such tool can also be called as strimmer, weed-whip, whipper-snipper, weed eater, weed-whacker, and line trimmer. The string trimmer is different from the hedge trimmer is because the first one is designed with a flexible monofilament line and it consists of a cutting tip at the end of the long shaft with a handle, while the latter is designed with a blade. The string trimmer can be used to cut grass and some other plants, and such tool can be powered by an internal combustion engine, by a hydraulic motor, or by an electric motor. The five types of string trimmer include the walk behind, the gas trimmers, the electric trimmers, the 2 in 1 trimmers, and the brush cutter. The other term used for the walk behind trimmers is wheeled trimmers, and these is designed to be used in the areas where vegetation is too thick and the areas are rugged. Some of the most common attachments and accessories of the string trimmers are the cultivator, trimmer line, trimmer head, hearing protectors, lubricants and fuels, harnesses, protective glasses or visors, adapters, cord, trim safe guards, maintenance kits, batteries and chargers, broom attachment, and the plastic or metal trimmer blades. Most of the hardware stores are selling the various kinds of attachments and accessories designed for the wheeled line trimmers, but in this day and age, most of them have their very own website which is more convenient for their possible clients or customer; and that is because their website contains the important details and information about them and their services, such as their contact numbers, their address, the list of their products or their catalogues, and the option to purchase their products online.
