If you have a large tree in your yard, you might consider getting a tree trimmer from Tree Trimming Orange County. There are two types of trimmers, the electric one and the cordless one. Both come in different styles to meet the needs of different people. For example, some people might need one that is more lightweight for the terrain where they live while others might want a trimmer that they can attach to a power cord so they can move the tree anywhere they like. Here are some basics for choosing a tree trimming tool.
Where will the treetrimmer be used? Trimmers are available in a variety of sizes to accommodate different branches and types of trees. The larger the tree, the larger the branches will need to be so there should be multiple size models for those branches. For example, a tree trimming tool for a tree three feet tall would be too heavy to use around a tree with branches over six feet. The best place to find the perfect trimmer for your situation is to go to a hardware store and see what they have.
How often will the tree trimmer be used? This will affect how many tools you need to purchase. For example, if someone is trimming their tree weekly, they would not need as many tools as someone who does it daily. Trimmers are generally quite cheap, so if one is going to be used regularly, it might be worth the cost to purchase them.
What are the other tools needed to trim trees? Like any mechanical device, a tree trimmer comes with cords that need to be attached to the tree trimmer. Cordless tools will require the user to insert the cord through a trigger to start the machine. Usually this is done with a switch on the handle. When the tree trimmer is turned on, the machine turns on the first tool and continues to run until it has finished trimming.
There are basically two types of trimmers: battery-powered and gas powered. Battery-powered tools will generally run for five to ten minutes between recharging and will be suitable for cutting small branches or trees up to twelve feet in diameter. Gas-powered trimmers can run for up to thirty minutes between uses, but these are larger and heavier. The trimmers have different features, such as hand controls, speed and cutting depth. Both types of equipment have an option for expansion cords. An extension cord adds length to the trimmer and allows it to reach places that a hand held trimmer cannot.
Are there any regulations on using a tree trimmer? Using a tree trimmer without the proper training can be dangerous. Using them for personal purposes without the proper training can also be dangerous. You should take a safety course if you plan to use a trimmer on your property. Some counties have restrictions on how high a trimmer can get to ensure that they are not hurt when trimming a tree. Always make sure that your County Engineer approves your plans before you purchase any tools or equipment.
