Cordless string trimmers are popular because they're light-weight, easy-to-use and you can take them anywhere
Bolingbrook, IL (Vocus/PRWEB) April 07, 2011
"Corded electric string trimmers are great for small yards where you're always close to a power outlet," said Todd Gwaltney, resident product expert at Mowers Direct, one of the fastest growing e-commerce companies in the United States. "Cordless string trimmers are popular because they're light-weight, easy-to-use and you can take them anywhere."
Most retailers are loyal to whatever electric string trimmers are on their shelves, added Gwaltney.
MowersDirect.com, however, isn't your ordinary retailer. The online superstore specializes exclusively in lawn mowers, string trimmers, lawn tools and lawn mower accessories. The site currently offers 63 string trimmers representing many leading national brands.
The online retailer combined retail prices, recent sales history, customer reviews and personal insight to generate its final electric string trimmer recommendations.
Once the dust and data settled, only 3 electric corded string trimmers and 3 cordless string trimmers sold by MowersDirect.com were given its prestigious "Recommended" status.
