Maintain your landscape with 
trimmers & edgers

Trimmer Tool Type

Gas Trimmers deliver high power and perform best when using non-ethanol gasoline.

Cordless Trimmers provide gas-like power with batteries, are easy to start, and are low maintenance.

Electric Trimmers deliver a consistent amount of power and require an electrical outlet.

Trimmer Brands & Platforms

Cordless tool batteries can also power other tools made by the same manufacturer under the same brand platform. Choose a cordless drill or trimmer that has a battery that transfers easily to other tools to expand the reach of your outdoor power equipment. Most batteries can power blowers, hedge trimmers, pole saws, edgers and more.

Power Considerations

If trimmer power is the most important feature to you, choose a gas-powered model. If extending your reach is important, consider a cordless trimmer as you will not be limited by how much gas you have in the tank or the reach of your electrical cord. If cost is most important, go with an electric trimmer.
