Lately, there’s been a lot of talk about the future of the home – specifically, what’s going to happen to it. Well, one thing that’s definitely going to change is how we do landscaping. And while you may be thinking that string trimmers are just for cutting grass, you might be surprised to learn that they can also be used for other tasks around the house, like trimming bushes and trees. So if you’re looking for an attachment that can do a lot more than just cut grass, be sure to check out our selection of interchangeable string trimmer attachments!
What is a String Trimmer Attachment?
String trimmer attachments come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The most common type is the rectangular head that typically has a blade on one side and a cutting edge on the other. Other attachments include those that have a cylindrical head, a circular blade, or a combination of these.
Many different brands of string trimmers offer interchangeable attachments, so it’s important to do your research before you buy. It’s also worth noting that not all attachments are interchangeable between different models of string trimmers. However, most attachments are compatible with at least some models.
If you’re not sure if an attachment is compatible with your string trimmer, err on the side of caution and avoid buying it if you don’t know for sure. If buying an attachment does work with your string trimmer, be sure to clean the blade and cutting edge after each use to keep them in good condition.
Types of String Trimmer Attachments
There are a few different types of string trimmer attachments that can be used with most string trimmers. This means that if your string trimmer has the right attachment, you can use it with most other string trimmers.
The three most common types of attachments are the linefeeder, the edger, and the mulching blade.
Linefeeders feed the string out one at a time as it is pulled through the device. This type of attachment is best used on smaller branches or leaves.
Edgers quickly cut a straight line across the branch or leaf. They are best used on larger branches and leaves.
Mulching blades chop up the leaves and twigs as they are fed through the device, creating clippings that can be swept into the garden or put into a compost pile.
How to Change the String Trimmer Attachment
If you are looking to change the string trimmer attachment on your machine, there are a few different ways that you can do this.
The most common way to change the string trimmer attachment is by unscrewing the old one and screwing in the new one.
If you would like to switch out the entire string trimmer head, you will need to remove the motor cover, screws, and then unscrew the head.
Once you have removed the head, you can switch out the strings and reattach the motor cover.
string trimmer attachments are not interchangeable. This means that if you have a Husqvarna 610PX, 720PX, or any other model with a string Trimmer Attachment in the OEM Part Number range of 71010000-71100000 and you purchase the LT010 String Trimmer Conversion Kit from Amazon, it will not work with your machine.
