Introduction

A good weed eater comprises five key measurable factors: weight, motor strength, cutting width, price, and perceived value. We applied a universal standard to all 15 electric line trimmers to objectively give you the fifteen best.

Knowing the comparative value of an item requires applying an acceptable measurement standard to all the products. By limiting subjective factors, we can evaluate a product’s purpose fitness comparatively to its peers.

First, we used the 4- and 5-star review ratings on Amazon as the only subjective factor. Then we averaged cost per Watt and Cost per width-inch. Finally, we factored in the deviation of the evaluated unit’s weight from the average weight of all the products (5.842-pounds). Below are the results – SG Score is the Simplify Gardening score.

Infocard of the Ryobi electric trimmer

Okay, so this is the crown-wearing, gold medalist of all the corded electric line trimmers. The reasons are not hard to find. Remember that we considered the price, calculating the cost per Watt and cost per mowing inch – and it still came out on top.

Unlike some of the other brands, Ryobi offers a single corded line trimmer – this model. Black+Decker has four versions covering a broad spectrum of motor strengths and width, but Ryobi decided to go big. The 10W motor is the biggest on any weed eater, and the 18-inch mowing width is also the widest. Though the bigger motor affects the unit’s weight (8-pounds), it still is not the heaviest (LawnMaster red Edition at 11.97-pounds).

If you need a job done that requires some punch, or if you have a more oversized yard, this is the best (if not only) option. It has the stamina and strength to deliver. Of all the Amazon reviewers, 88-percent gave the experience either a 4- or 5-star rating (out of 5-stars). One in twenty were not happy, mainly because the extra strength makes it a messy machine, creating dust. Wear safety equipment.

This powerful 10 Amp String Trimmer delivers an 18-inch cutting width, allowing you to cut more yards in less time. Not only is this trimmer attachment capable with ten different EXPAND-IT attachments, but it also comes with the REEL-EASY head that reloads in under 60 seconds. Best of all, this String Trimmer is covered under a 3 Year Limited Warranty.

And the silver medal goes to the BLACK+DECKER BESTA510. The brand has got it perfectly right, combining sturdy construction with a lightweight presentation – a whole 2.634-pounds lighter than the average and almost 9-pounds more lightweight than the heaviest.

As far as the subjective opinions of reviewers on Amazon, 88-percent gave the unit either a 4- or 5-star rating. The only electric weed eater that got a higher rating (90%) was also a Black+Decker.

The motor is an above-average 6.5 Amps, mounted off-center above the rotor. The position makes space for an added torque unit that acts as a power drive. The guard is robust and, instead of the usual bump-frame, the line trimmer has a wheel – allowing it to double up as an edger.

Adjusting the telescopic shaft is easy and will enable people of all sizes to change it with no fuss. The line feeder is a rare case of a functional auto-feeder. Many of the reviewed automated feed systems on other line trimmers don’t work, feeding more line than is needed and wasting cord.

Black+Decker has created a light yet chunky unit that adds torque to an already powerful motor. It is easy to operate, adjustable, and feels sturdy. It certainly deserves to be the runner-up.

Infocard of the Earthwise electric line trimmer

And our bronze medalist is this weed eater from Earthwise. Earthwise won the best reel mower evaluation too. It would appear they make good products.

The Earthwise 13″ Corded String Trimmer is ready to tackle yard work with 8,200RPM of clean, quiet power. The adjustable telescopic handle and adjustable auxiliary handle allow you to work comfortably. Additional features include the flip-down edge guard to protect your flowers and borders while trimming and build-in cord retention to keep extension cords from coming unhooked. Powerful, lightweight, and easy to use. No Gas, No Oil, No emissions. Earthwise is the Clean Air Choice!

Your trimmer uses a .065-inch (1.65mm) diameter nylon line to quickly and easily cut grass and weeds. In time, the tip of the nylon line will become worn, and the auto-feed mechanism will automatically feed and trim a new line length. The cutting line will wear faster if the cutting is done along sidewalks or other abrasive surfaces or heavier weeds are being cut. The line will extend approximately ¼ in. with each stop and start of the switch trigger until the line reaches the length of the grass deflector blade. Do not bump the unit on the ground to feed line or for any other purpose.

If your trimmer line hits sharp or abrasive objects, such as stones, metal pieces, or concrete, the trimmer line can be cut too short to continue trimming. In this case, you can manually extend the line:

  1. Unplug the trimmer
  2. Press the line-feeding button with one hand while pulling the line out with the other
  3. Press the button repeatedly to release the line to the proper length. Each press of the button will release approximately 1/4 inch of line. (Note: Release only enough line to extend just beyond the blade. If too much line is released, the blade will be unable to cut it to the correct working length, and it may become tangled on the rotating shaft.)
  4. Plug the trimmer in
  5. Restart the trimmer and return to regular operation

Black+Decker is more than a century in the making. Since its early days, when they released the first DIY handyman electric drill in 1947, they made machines that last. Since our earliest days as a small Baltimore machine shop, BLACK+DECKER has remained steadfastly focused on customer needs.  The ST4500 is a no-frill, budget machine with the highest score in its group.

Breaking from the orange and black theme, Black+Decker created the all-black model with a 12-inch cutting swath that runs at an impressive 10,000 rpm. Weighing in at 4-pounds, this is the lightest of all the contenders for the BEST electric weed eaters.

Infograph of a weed eater Black+Decker GH3000

Like our silver medalist, this Black+Decker option also has a rear-mounted motor, but in addition, it has a curved shaft.  The curved shart allows greater control of the cutting head, allowing you to position it more parallel to the mowed surface.

The higher Amperage from 6.5 to 7.5 pushes both the price and weight up, and I expect that the cost of curving the shaft also contributes to higher manufacturing and transport costs. Even still, Black+Decker has three of their electric line trimmers in the top 50%.

An Amazon approval rating of 88-percent is about right for its position on this list of the 15 BEST Electric Weed Eaters:

I must admit that I have a particular liking for WORX products. We have evaluated their battery-powered line trimmer and their powered wheelbarrows, and both were quality reasonably priced. The WORX Nitro WG186.9 40V Power Share PRO  15″ Cordless String Trimmer came in at the top of the mid-priced category and the Aerocart 8-in-1 cart, though not powered, really caught our eye as an ingenious design.

To extract a score of more than 80-percent on Amazon is not easy. Firstly, if your product is new, it doesn’t appear as a suggestion to searchers.  Those first reviewers are more critical than later reviewers, which could hinder your product from getting any additional reviews. Either way, you have to have an exceptional offer to get four out of five people to constantly like your product.

Even though Toro is one of the biggest suppliers of turf management tools, if not the leader, they also make some tremendous domestic lawn care products. Americans are not unfamiliar with Toro as a lawnmower option. Still, they have a single electric line trimmer on offer – representing the TORO brand. In contrast, their website offers 11 battery-powered options – a clear indicator of where the market is moving towards.

Toro’s 5 Amp string trimmer and edger are robust and durable, with high-performing features that make yard care seem effortless. 14 in. wide dual line cutting width gets the job done quickly, and user-friendly features make the job much easier.

Here again, we have a brand that offers a single corded electric line trimmer and 41 battery-powered options. Increasingly we see fewer electrical and gas-powered options and an increase in lithium-ion-powered machines.

Greenworks also featured in our TOP 3 Reel Mowers article, although stronger contenders in that market took the top spots. The Greenworks scored high in the Amazon reviews. Still, they fared less well on our bang-for-buck algorithm. 

85-percent of Amazon reviewers scored the Greenworks 21212 Electric Corded String Trimmer either 4-stars or 5-stars (out of a possible 5-stars). We awarded them only 41.71-percent – about half as good as the winner and twice as good as the lowest option.

It’s no wonder, as the company has always focused on cordless, something they’re good at making. Greenworks launched the first cordless string trimmer in 2007 already – first in the U.S.A. They also own 80% of that marker for batteries to power POE. Not bad.

With its quieter operation and more straightforward function, the 5 Amp Electric 14″ Straight Shaft String Trimmer offers a competitive alternative to gas-powered trimmers. Lightweight in construction, this trimmer is easy to maneuver and transport, meaning less fatigue and strain during long periods of operation. A 14″ cutting path handles most trimming jobs with ease and for edging along sidewalks and other pavements as well.

And that is how, maybe, both the Sun Joe and the Martha Steward line trimmers became the plastic blade trimmers. Interesting fact, the Martha Steward line trimmer is actually a Sun Joe product manufactured for the Martha Steward brand.

The SB602E trims a pristine 11.5-inch swath of grass with each pass thanks to SharperBlade, a proprietary, maintenance-free, self-sharpening trimmer blade system! Remove undesired plants and weeds and edge flower beds with the built-in flower guard while keeping your plants safe and secure.

Infocard of the Martha Steward electric line trimmer

The Martha Steward brand continuously delivers hand-picked products, for which Martha puts her name and reputation on the line. The Martha Steward 4.5 Amp Electric SharperBlade, a Sun Joe product with its patented plastic blade, is loved by some and has not yet been adopted by others.

Priced to include brand value (for which the algorithm did not account), it comes in a bit expensive if you’re only looking for the functionality.

The professionals at Snow Joe have teamed up with Martha Stewart to provide you the best tools for your home, yard, and garden. She’s put together the perfect assortment to make your fall duties more enjoyable; everything from a small leaf blower to the ultimate pressure washer, from a powerful pole chainsaw to a stringless grass trimmer, Hori Hori knife, secateurs, or garden hose. Each has been hand-picked by Martha and put to the test on her farm, so you can be sure they’ll work for you.

With this Stringless Electric Trimmer, you can say goodbye to tangles, difficulty, and headaches. The revolutionary, maintenance-free trimmer blade design cuts through even the toughest undesired weeds and plants with ease. With the stroke of a button, the strong electric motor starts up instantly, with no kinks, jams, or fuss. The spinning head allows for optimum maneuverability and control, allowing you to cut through dense sections of grass and weeds with ease or edge flower beds and gardens neatly.

Key Features
