Bosch 18-260 Universal Grass Trimmer

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

bosch universalgrasscut 18-260 electric battery and rotofilTaking care of the garden without hurting your back is the main objective of the Bosch UniversalGrassCut 18-260! To guarantee this, among other things, it is equipped with a height-adjustable handle so that each user can find the most comfortable working position. It is also equipped with the IntelliFEED function: no need to bend down or press the rotofil against the ground to advance the line, since this is done automatically! Practical and cleverly designed, it also has a foot pedal that allows you to tilt the handles to maintain an optimal position, even when you have to mow under obstacles.

My opinion : Of all the electric rotofils that I have tried, this is clearly my favorite! With this UniversalGrassCut, Bosch has done an excellent job of handling it. It’s easy to handle, it’s super light and it almost becomes a pleasure to garden, especially since the power is good and the results are clear. The battery is not the one that offers the greatest autonomy, but it at least has the advantage of being present at this more than correct price. If I had to recommend just one, it would be this one!

Makita DUR181Z

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

makita dur181z electric rotofil and batteryWith adjustable head to be even more practical! 15°, 30°, 45° or even 60°, the head of this Makita DUR181Z has several settings to precisely match the expectations of users, even if they need an edge cutter to delimit corridors and paths for example. The other useful element, in addition to its powerful battery-powered motor, is the possibility of adjusting the height of its tube. The fact that it is telescopic allows everyone to work comfortably. It comes without battery, it is compatible with the brand’s 18V.

My opinion : If you have already been equipped with 18V batteries from Makita, I advise you to take an interest in this model: its price is really very interesting and its performance is rather excellent. It is powerful enough, even to get rid of small brambles for example, and if it is light enough, it is still accompanied by a harness to further limit fatigue. Comfortable and easy to use, it is also a very good option and is ideal for medium-sized gardens, especially when running on 5 Ah!

Makita DUR368AZ

Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

makita dur368az electric rotofil and batteryPower for efficient garden cleaning! With its 3 speeds and its brushless motor (powered by 2 18V batteries not included), this Makita DUR368AZ gives weeds no chance. This is all the more true since it has a cutting width of 350mm, a resistant nylon line and the Tap ‘n Go system (a touch on the ground is enough to recover the length of the line). With its 2 bicycle handlebar-style handles, it is also a super handy electric cutter that offers maximum visibility thanks to its small size and judiciously placed protections.

My opinion : This Makita electric cutter really has no problem outperforming all the other models in this selection! I wanted to present it to you because it represents the best professional alternative if you need to regularly clean and clear your garden. It is quite impressive for its power, its solidity, its lightness, its maneuverability but also for the fact that it emits much less noise. It’s a great achievement from the brand, and if you like well-designed tools, you should be thrilled to get your hands on this one!

Ryobi OLT1825M

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

electric and battery rotofil ryobi olt1825 mNeat and precise finishes for a perfectly clean garden! With this Ryobi OLT1825 M, maneuverability is in the spotlight. Thanks to its ergonomic design and its perfect balance, comfort of use is guaranteed, especially since the device knows how to remain light, even after inserting the 18V ONE+ battery necessary for its operation. Solid and efficient, it has a little extra to make it versatile: by simply rotating the handle 180° (also 100% ergonomic for optimal handling), it easily switches from mower mode to mower mode.

My opinion : A good value for money among all rotating battery wires! This Ryobi is as efficient as it is fun to drive. As a trimmer, its results live up to expectations: it has no difficulty cutting tall grass or even weeds. And the fact that it is light is also a plus. To make the most of its low price, it’s better to already own batteries from the ONE+ range… or it’s a good opportunity to start equipping yourself with this brand that rarely disappoints.

Black+Decker BESTA530C10-QS

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

electric and battery rotofilblack+decker besta530c10-qsWith extension included! To maintain perfect freedom of movement, the Black+Decker BESTA530C10-QS electric cutter comes with its own extension cord which is still 10m long. For a precise finish in the garden, it has also been designed to be used as simply and comfortably as possible. In addition to being small in size, it is balanced and has a wide handle for optimal grip and maneuverability. Its low weight guarantees minimum effort! Finally, it is equipped with a support wheel that allows it to be transformed in a very clever way into a trimmer.

My opinion : With its 10m extension, it alone solves one of the main drawbacks of corded rotofils (the lack of freedom of movement) and this is clearly a reason to opt for this Black+Decker. However, this is not its only advantage because it is as light as it is functional, it is quite quiet and the cable supplied is of fairly good quality. In any case, I did not have the impression that the reel was emptying too quickly. At this price and for this level of performance, do not hesitate, you will not be disappointed!

Werka Pro 10679

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

electric rotofilo werkapro 10679A 1400 W motor for great power! The WerkaPro 10679 is the ideal tool to not be satisfied with a simple use as a brushcutter: it is completely comfortable to also serve as an electric brushcutter. For this reason, it is also accompanied by a 3-tooth blade and a double-wire spool, while thanks to its harness and double-grip handlebar, handling is easy, without causing muscle fatigue. Wired, this rotofil is versatile and reliable for nickel finishing.

My opinion : Do you like the convenience of corded tools (always ready to use) but a simple rotofil is not enough for your garden with lots of brambles and difficult weeds? In this case, I advise you to take an interest in this WerkaPro. It is powerful, light enough to be comfortable to hold and above all, thanks to its brushcutter head, you will be able to maintain your garden perfectly. It may not be the cheapest but it is a very good investment since its performance is close to that of thermal models!

Bosch EasyGrassCut 23

Editor’s note: 3.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

bosch easygrasscut 23 electric rotary threaderFor small gardens! The Bosch EasyGrassCut 23 electric flosser was designed from the ground up to make maintenance as easy and convenient as possible. It is equipped with a motor that offers a perfect cutting result, but it is especially at the level of its design that it has many arguments: in addition to being extremely light and therefore manageable, the weight distribution is optimal and it also has an adjustable handle AND with its self-advancing semi-automatic spool, it’s always ready to go!

My opinion : If you have a small budget to devote to the purchase of a rotofil, this Bosch EasyGrassCut is for you! Of course, compared to others, it does not have the same power or versatility, but it has no problems cutting grass on edges, paths, flowerbeds, etc. And that’s obviously what matters most! It is also easy to use, its lightness makes it super handy and for a few euros more, it is even available in a wider version (27 cm instead of 23 cm). For less than 40€ you will not find better!
