Most corded grass trimmers come in the form of string trimmers, meaning they employ quickly rotating plastic "string" to cut through wily grass and weeds. Corded grass trimmers tend to be lightweight and more affordable than their cordless gas or battery powered counterparts. Of course, the "best" corded grass trimmer comes down to the individual need, preference and budget of the consumer; however, professional and customer reviews separate some trimmers from the pack.
