This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in March of 2019. If you need to care for more than the typical suburban, postage-stamp-sized lot, or have a lot of fencing to work around, it might be time to invest in a string trimmer mower, which is, essentially, the same as the handheld stick version, but on wheels. They can power through fields of weeds and woody brush in record time, without breaking your back. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best string trimmer mower on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

April 01, 2019:

The Remington Walk Behind took the top spot for its superior durability and not skimping on the little things, like the all-metal trimmer head that will outlast the plastic competitors.

Although the option from Southland Outdoor Power Equipment has the maddening shortcoming of the handle being to short for those over 6 feet tall, we included it because of the unique swiveling head that allows for more precise edging than any other choice.
