It’s just about time to break out your gardening gadgets as mowing season begins to crop up this summer. But what do you do if you don’t have a tool that will help you prune overgrown shrubs, chop down small branches or tame those pesky weeds around garden beds?

This weed trimmer boasts a lightweight design that emphasizes portability, helping you handle landscaping nuisances that could soon be problems of the past. Right now, it’s on sale for 15 per cent off on Amazon Canada.

What is it?

The Suncanri weed trimmer is a portable, cordless gardening tool that can help anyone clean up their yard. With three types of cutting blades, it allows users to mow varying sizes of lawns, cut down hard-to-reach weeds and prune several kinds of shrubs. Coming with two 21V rechargeable batteries, the weed trimmer can run continuously for two or more hours.

An adjustable handle that extends to 120cm and a swivel head that can be adjusted 90 degrees helps users tackle the most difficult areas. Its design is also lightweight, where — even with its battery — the weed trimmer weighs less than 2kg.

It’s a ‘great little trimmer’

Amazon shoppers gave this weed trimmer a 4.1-star rating, with most customers appreciating that it’s lightweight. One person called it a “great little trimmer” after gifting the tool to their 84-year-old mother who “loves it” since she struggles to push a lawn mower.

Another customer raved that it’s “very powerful” and even allowed their nine-year-old son to help with their gardening.

Other users were happy about this weed trimmer running on a rechargeable battery compared to other units that run on gas, where one person enjoyed getting away from “the fuel smell” and strings that jam up.

But some customers weren’t so keen to give the weed trimmer a five-star rating. One reviewer claimed the tool is “more of a toy,” where another person returned their product after their blade quickly broke.

Another user called it a “very light duty trimmer” that’s also “cheaply made.” They admitted it could be useful for cutting light brush, but it wouldn’t do the trick for larger-sized lawns.

Verdict

When it comes to finding gardening and landscaping tools, it’s clearly important to find a product that adequately suits one’s needs. This weed trimmer likely isn’t the tool that will most efficiently mow a 50-acre lawn. It’s more so geared towards cleaning up hard-to-reach edges of lawns, pruning a handful of shrubs and knocking down unsightly weeds. It could also be a suitable tool for people who have small yards.

Figuring out the accessibility of tools is also an important factor to consider. While a typical lawn mower might be fine for some consumers, others may find it too large for their property or too heavy to push. Moreover, gas-powered weed trimmers could be the perfect tool for some households, but others might prefer a lightweight electric gadget such as this one.
