Any ideas on how to keep line trimmers from trimming to low ?
? about line trimmers
are refering to the sclaping that is easily done by those who are newbs....
Ther really isn't any tool or spacer you can put on em to keep the strings out of the dirt.
At least none that I am aware of...just gott drink less coffee to keep the "jitters" outof th epicture.
And practice. with the tools to learn how to more comfortable use them so its not a strain to keep the trimmer head out of the dirt.
Just takes practice to keep them level and contistent. Go in your yard and practice cutting a 8X8 area with just a line trimmer (when your grass starts growing). You will eventually get the feel for how to maintain its movement in a uniform manner to reduce the string grab and scapling that occurs.
Just takes practice.
practice makes perfect (almost)
Hold it higher off the ground and adjust the handle on the shaft up or down depending on the operator's hieght.
