Electric herb eaters come in wired and wireless varieties. Homeowners with large lots need electric grass eaters that do not require an extension cord, but trimmers with a cord are a good option for people with smaller lots. What corded electric grass eaters lack the mobility that they can compensate for in cost savings. In addition to paying less for grass eaters with an electric cable, owners save money by not having to fill a tank with gas and oil.

Types of weed eaters
Gas driven grass eaters are more powerful than a battery or electric weed eaters and can cover a large distance without recharging and without being hampered by a power cord. They are also the heaviest and often need a mixture of gas and oil to function.
Electric brushcutters operate out of an extension cord plugged into a power outlet. They can only go as far as the cable can reach but in general, they are very light.
The herb eater accumulator combines the beauty of electricity without the hindrance of an extension cord. They, too, are lightweight, but less powerful and need frequent refills.
The power of the engine helps determine which type of weed cutter works best: dense and more complete weeds need more power than finer or younger weeds. Most grass eaters consist of a single shaft with the cutting device at one end, although some advanced models come with wheels and resemble a mini-lawn mower.
Grass eaters are equipped with either nylon ropes or plastic blades. The cords need frequent replacement while the plastic sheets may last longer, but they can crack if they hit stone or concrete.
