Bearing the appearance of a cross between a string trimmer and a lawn mower, a wheeled [or] walk-behind string trimmer is a powerful gardening implement that can easily cut through thick, stubborn weeds and grasses. They are perfect for use in rugged terrain that can't be handled with a regular mower, or where the grass [or] shrubbery is too thick to be dealt with using standard string trimmers.
