Hints & Tips
Really thick, tall weeds can be very difficult to clear with conventional machinery and this is where wheeled trimmers come into their own.
Much easier to work with than a conventional brush cutter, they can be simply wheeled into the rougher areas and have very heavy duty strimming head and line to cut through the vegitation.
DR is an United States company which manufacturers very tough machinery and here are three tough machines from their range.
The first is the DR TR4 Premier Wheeled Trimmer-Mower – Recoil Start with a 190 cc Briggs & Stratton engine to drive the front strimming line. And when fixing the line you can chose cutting heights between 1.5 in to 3.5 in.
It is based on a strong steel frame and has the cutting deck offset so you can trim close to fences and and walls.
Large wheels make it easy to manoeuvre over rough ground and a front bumper will save it from damaging knocks. And the handlebars can be adjusted the suit the height of the user.
It costs £479 and is delivered free the next working day. There is a two year warranty.
The DR TR4 Premier Plus Wheeled Trimmer-Mower – Electric Start (DRMP53) will rip through thick vegitation which would challenge even tough brush cutters.
The 190 cc Briggs & Stratton engine has been designed to keep noise to a minimum and has a unique cutting head which will stop weeds wrapping around.
The cutting head has five working heights and weighing in at only 28 kg it is easy to wheel around even the roughest ground. And the electric start is an obvious bonus.
The cutter head has a clutch so it can be disengaged when moving across roads, paths and the like.
It costs £669 and has a two year warranty and free next working day delivery.
And their top of the range machine is the
DR TR4 Pro-XL Self-Propelled Wheeled Trimmer Mower – Electric Start
The Briggs & Stratton 190 cc engine has an electric start and delivers great torque figures and has been engineered to give a long life with an engine cover designed to stop contamination from grass and other debris.

It has five cutting heights from 38 mm to 89 mm and extra thick strimming cord to deal with really stubborn grasses, nettle, dock and the like.
The cutter head is offset to let you clear right up to brickwork and fences and the design means grass will not wrap around it.
