A weed wacker is NOT a string trimmer............
Then what is a weed wacker? A masturbating pothead? A $99 weedeater?
I think it's a regional thing. String trimmer is to weed wacker as coke is to pop.
Ya, weed wacker is more of a southern term. I know some people on here call it a weed whip or weedeater.
That seems to be a Michigan thing, dunno why but, I've seen guys from Michigan say weed whip. Me personally it's a trimmer, plain and simple trimmer.
Most guys in the biz around here call it a trimmer....most people not in the biz call it a weedeater.....and we drink pop, not sodas....and we're "fixin' to" whenever we are about to do something.
I had a customer once write to me asking to explain what a "string trimmer" was.
Told them its the same as a "Weed Wacker". But Weed Wacker is a brand name and most professionals call them string trimmers or line trimmers.
Normally hear the term weed wacker or string trimmer. Don't here weed whip much around here...
Occasional employee of mine originally from Florida says "weed whip." Problem with "trimmer" is that's the hedge trimmer too.
He also once rigged my trimmer to use pretty heavy gauge metal wire instead of plastic line, which was crazy.
