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. There are several different types of yard edgers. Some are gas, some are electric, some are commercial duty and some are consumer duty or your typical duty found in your local home improvement stores. This one is consumer rated or consumer duty. It is not heavy duty, it is not intended for commercial use. It is meant for the weekend warrior maintaining the yard around home. This one is gas. There are electric models as I mentioned early and also another feature about this one that I would like to point out is it has interchangeable ends. So this could be used as an edger or by simply removing the end and replacing it with the weed eater end. Now I have a weed eater. Instead of having to buy multiple machines to do different jobs, it is one machine that does it all by simply exchanging the ends.
