Editors' Choice Award
If you are looking for the best of the best when it comes to cordless weed eaters, we think it's hard to beat this top-tier tool
Best Buy Award
Costing a fraction of the top-tier models, this yard tool does a decent job of holding its own against much more expensive offerings
Top Pick Award
This is a great all-around model with excellent battery life, but it has a shorter reach
Best Buy Award
For folks desiring a trimmed yard while sticking to a budget, this model is up to the task
Top Pick Award
If you already use EGO tools and just want a string trimmer attachment, the STA1500 won't disappoint
Scoring close to the bottom of the pack, we weren't huge fans of the Greenworks
This model is great for plowing through thick stands of weeds but lacks a lower speed setting for more precise applications
If you are shopping for a string trimmer on a tight budget and don't mind making some sacrifices in performance, the Expand-It by Ryobi is a great bet
The Snapper XD is heavy and hard to hold, making it one of our least favorite weed eaters
