Weed Trimmers

Here are some things to consider doing. Some items may not be applicable to you.

Before using a weed trimmer:

  • Wait until weeds are dry
  • Fill the fuel tank – you shouldn’t refill the tank when the engine is hot
  • Walk through entire area to be trimmed to check for objects and debris (e.g., stones, twigs) which could be thrown by the trimmer and injure someone
  • Ensure there will be no people, especially children, too close to the operating trimmer
  • Wear:
    • Protective shoes
    • Long pants
    • Safety glasses
    • Ear plugs
