What are the difference between the various types of Trimmer heads available.
Bump Feed Trimmer Heads
There are two types of Bump Feed trimmer heads: Semi-Automatic - These are also known as Tap n’ Go heads. These trimmer heads are fed automatically when the head is pushed into the ground which put you in total control.
Fully-Automatic - These heads have line that is automatically fed when it has become too short for productive use. The line is self adjusting to ensure that the best performance is achieved.
Manual Feed Trimmer Heads
These heads are fed manually by pushing or turning the line feed button/spool and pulling the cord. This allows you to select the length of line to achieve the desired effect.
Fixed Line Trimmer Heads
These are trimmer heads that are easy to use and have a quick and easy line feeding requiring minimal maintenance. The line is normally loaded without opening the head.
Tri-Cut Trimmer Heads
These are trimmer heads with a very distinct design, they use plastic knives instead of trimmer line. They are ideal for use in coarser grass or stony ground. You can also get highly visible, replaceable plastic flails for safe use around trees and bushes.
DiY Spare Parts also stocks a full range of branded and non branded lines to fit all types of trimmer heads.
