Looking for a Green Alternative To an Electric Powered Weed Trimmer (string Trimmer)?

I am looking for a green alternative to my current gas-powered weed trimmer, a green substitution comparable to my rotary push mower rather than my old gas mower. It seems crazy to mow the lawn with the push mower then get out the gas-powered string trimmer to do all the edging!
What did people use before gas- and electric-powered weed whackers?

Worx Electric Hover Lawn Mower 40 cm 50 Litre Capacity, 1600 watt

Worx Electric Hover Lawn Mower 40 cm 50 Litre Capacity, 1600 watt

This neat little Worx 16 inch electric lawn mower is rugged yet lightweight. This particular Worx mower is perfect for small yards and homes with limited storage space.

This 13 Amp mower has plenty of cutting power for the smallish 16 inch blades. It is actually an easy mower to store, the handles fold down and collapse, making it quite easy to store. The handle folds back and collapses for quite a compact, easy-to-store mower. The grass box is pretty spacious and holds approximately 13 gallons of clippings and you can detach the box simply in order to empty it.

There are limited reviews around on this particular Worx mower, personally I don’t like hover mowers so would probably never buy this. However for some people they make a good choice particularly if you want something easy to manage which will cut your lawn pretty quickly. Many people have not heard of Worx lawnmowers in the UK hwoever they have a good reputation in the USA where they are a well known brand.

Worx have another mower in this price range but it has wheels instead of the hover nonsense, it’s called the Worx 1200w Silent Electric Rotary Mower – also worth checking out. Another thing that might not be important to grass cutting itself but the Worx mowers certainly look quite stricking, a bit of a head turner and chances are you’ll be the only one who has one if you’re in the UK at least.

Uses For Karcher Electric Pressure Washers

Karcher electric pressure washers are the top produced electric pressure washers in the world. The first one was patented in 1950 by Alfred Karcher, who had started his business in 1935. Until the pressure washer was patented, he’d specialized in his electric heater business by producing industrial heating supplies and equipment. After he developed an electric heating element that could work under water, he came up with the design for his electric pressure washer.

Today, the Karcher family-owned company possesses over 250 patents, but the Karcher electric pressure washer is a top item. In fact, in the 1970s the company shifted away from heating equipment and began focusing on things like pressure washers, vacuums and other cleaning equipment. This helped lead a one man company to become an internationally known company, employing over 6,000 people worldwide.

Their electric pressure washers are designed after more expensive and more powerful commercial washers, but they’re designed for home use. Careful attention to ergonomics and ease of use help shape new designs coming from the company. They strive to make sure that their pressure washers are easy to use and comfortable to use for the average homeowner.

Karcher electric pressure washers are useful around the house, for jobs that would take much longer scrubbing by hand. And because electric power washers don’t have quite the power that gasoline powered units do, they’re safer for most jobs.

Commercial gas-powered washers can have so much pressure and power that they can do damage to things like siding or cars that can be dented, and can even break glass if used improperly. If the full-powered spray hits a person it can cause serious injury. While the spray from a Karcher electric pressure washer should never be aimed at a person or body part, the injury caused, if any, would be less serious. And there’s less likelihood of property damage.

Pressure washers are handy for things around the house like cleaning decks, sidewalks, driveways and patios. The power behind the spray can blast away years of ground in dirt, debris and even mildew. Using Karcher electric pressure washers with certain cleaning agents designed for it can lighten these surfaces a few shades after removing dirt and mildew.

Using a pressure washer on a wooden deck is a great way to prepare it for refinishing and/or resealing, too. Any painted surface where the paint is chipped, peeling or otherwise loose is a great place to use a pressure washer, too. Use the spray to blast away as much paint as possible, and then let it dry thoroughly. That can cut a laborious sanding job down a great deal, making painting prep much easier.

Karcher electric power washers are also suitable for careful cleaning of house siding and outside window surfaces. Care must be used to avoid denting or cracking certain types of siding. But used properly, mildew and dirt blasts away leaving siding looking as new as possible. Washing cars, boats, lawn mowers and many other items around the house are other uses for Karcher electric pressure washers.

Does An Electric Cordless Lawn Mower Work As Well As A Gas Powered One?

I am needing a new lawn mower and with the price of gas, I was wondering if the electric ones are any good. I can’t imagine having a cord attached, so I would want a rechargable one.

Knife Sharpening Experts: Electric Knife Sharpening’s Come a Very Long Way

If you’re a person who has many knives, many edges to sharpen at a fairly consistent pace, electric knife sharpening is for you. So much time and effort will be saved. But take heed. Using these devices without proper training and only a little experience could be a regrettable move.
Electric knife sharpeners are well known for producing great heat while sharpening. Friction from the metal edge against the sharpener over time will do that. You’ve got to know just how hot you’ll allow the metal edge to get. If your blade changes color on you, if you’re waiting for that to be the sign, you’ve blown it. If you see sparks, forget about it. Your blade edge has been overheated and has lost its temper. Yeah, you’ve got an angry knife on your hands! (Ha!) No. To lose temper on a blade means that you have weakened it. Made it brittle, even pliable. Just imagine using it now. That is a knife that you don’t want.
Even knowing that, electric knife sharpeners have improved a great deal over the last decade. Some of them are astonishing in what they claim they’re able to do. Many are quoted as saying that they “will never detemper” a knife’s edge. Wow. Wouldn’t that be something? To never, ever have to worry. Truly amazing.
What about the sharpening angle? This is the angle of the bevel that determines the functionality and durability of each knife. Some modern electric knife sharpeners have high precision knife guides that it is said will achieve the exact sharpening angle they want, precisely. You needn’t concern yourself over it. Some sharpeners actually claim that they will do as much as convert the existing sharpening angle of some knives to a different, more high performing sharpening angle. Another says that it’ll get the edge to a condition that is better than the factory edge. It’ll give it a sharpening angle that performs better than that given by the one’s who’ve made the knife. Truly awesome declarations, one and all.
Many of the latest electric knife sharpeners have improved to having several sharpening stages all in one. The first stage is meant to get the edge to sharpness. You could stop right there if you wanted. The second stage is usually a finer sharpening with smaller abrasive particles than is found in the first stage. It is meant to get the edge to razor-sharpness. The third stage is meant for stropping. How about that? An electric knife stopper to get your edge silky smooth. Absolutely extraordinary.
Electric knife sharpening has definitely grown by leaps and bounds. If everything they claim is true, why would anyone want to know how to manually sharpen their knives? A very good question. Here’s your answer: It isn’t possible to take most kinds of electric knife sharpeners away from home and out into the field. Many of them are battery powered but they’re size or bulk doesn’t make transport very practical. It isn’t very wise to take an electric knife sharpener out camping or on a fishing trip. You really shouldn’t take it out on a boat or on a hunt. With electric knife sharpeners, you’ve got to be near an outlet or in a secure and safe location.
Most times then, it just isn’t reasonable. Too many times you’ll need to sharpen your knife’s edge right where you are, where all you’ve got is yourself, maybe a pack and your own two hands. But most of all, more than all of this, sharpening on a sharpening stone will still get you the sharpest edge possible. It is still the most reliable way to sharpen your knives.
If you only need to sharpen your knives while you’re at home, an electric knife sharpener is probably all you’ll ever need. But if you’re an active individual who often needs to do some sharpening while you’re out in the world, you’ll want to learn how to sharpen knives with your own two hands. And don’t worry. You’ve got many choices to make that happen.
Knife sharpening isn’t difficult. It just takes a bit of practice. Once you’ve got it, you’ll have a very valuable skill that’ll last your lifetime. And you can do this almost anywhere, at any time. That’s pretty amazing right there? And when you’re home, surrounded by the many advantages of modern living, your electric knife sharpener can get your knife sharpening done for you in two flashes. Truly incredible, to be able to manually and electrically sharpen your knives. There’d be nothing slowing you down.
