Gas-Powered Models: Four-Cycle Engine

With a big jungle to tame, you'll want a trimmer with a 4-cycle engine. Though more expensive ($300 and up), these powerful machines are easier to start, quieter, pollute less, and run smoother than 2-cycle motors, and don't require a gas-oil mix.

Shown: A common straight shaft, which is more durable—and versatile in the attachments it accepts. Honda HHT25S; about $350; hondapowerequipment.com
