This or That Thursday
Lawn Edger or Weed Trimmer?
Jul 20, 2017

It’s Sunday morning and you are finally getting around to doing the yard work. Today, you need to mow the lawn before you have family over for a BBQ in the afternoon. You don’t want everyone trekking through the overgrown grass. After you finish mowing the lawn you need to put on the finishing touches to make it look like you hired a team of landscapers to complete the job! But to do that you’ll need to use either a lawn edger or the weed trimmer. Now before you head to the shed to grab one of the above, take a look at how much energy each appliance typically uses. It might just change your mind on which appliance you use.

Let’s look at wattage.

Lawn Edger = 750 Watts > Weed Trimmer = 500 Watts

Conclusion: You might have noticed that you will use less energy when you opt to finish the hard to reach parts of the yard with the weed trimmer. It might not create perfect edges, like the lawn edger but it will help you chop down the weeds or grass you might have missed while mowing.
