How To Choose The Suitable Diameter Of The Trimmer Lines
- Dec 01, 2018-
There are many string trimmer lines to pick from today, with each offering its own benefits and drawbacks. If you’re unsure on what string trimmer line you need, well you’ve come to the right place.
Today I’m going to tell you how to know what size diameter you will need.
Generally speaking there are three size groups of diameters which are:
Small weeds (between .60 – .80 inches)
Medium weeds (between .08 – 0.110 inches)
Large weeds (anything over .115+ inches)
Smaller to medium size weeds you’ll be fine using a line that has the diameter size of 0.60 – 0.80 inches. This will be for your smaller jobs around the house, your front lawn and whacking the weeds from your driveway and small residential areas.
Medium size weeds you’d want to opt for a line around 0.80 – 0.110 inches in diameter. This sizing is ideal for your bigger gardens where you have slightly bigger weeds, this size of line commercial areas too.
Dealing with large weeds you’ll want anything from .115+ inches and bigger. Places of work that need a large amount of trimming, such as large estates, huge gardens, and industrial areas of landscaping, this should be your weapon of choice.
Pro tip – Before you go and buy a string trimmer line, check your string trimmer to see what it is capable of holding, as most can only go handle a certain size. Refer to the product handbook if you’re unsure.
