Hi! My name is Matthew Christian from Tampa, Florida and on behalf of Expert Village, today I would like to talk to you about the proper use and maintenance of a yard weed eater. For the most part, everyone's yard in the neighborhood has pretty much already been mowed. This was probably about the best spot that we could find to demonstrate the proper use a weed eater, so let's go ahead and start it up an d show you how to do that. Now I am going to use the throttle control just enough to get it spinning to do the job. One thing I would like to point out when using your gas powered weed eater, make sure that you don't get too close to the grass. What will happen is you will end of scalping the grass. If you get too close, you will end up taking off too much grass and making a dead spot in your lawn. Make sure you keep a fair enough distance when you are using the edger.
