Hyundai Grass Trimmer Review 2020 – Electric Vs Petrol?

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Hello and many thanks for taking the time to visit this Hyundai Grass Trimmer review which will cover both the electric and petrol grass trimmers under this brand so at least you have more than just one choice when it comes to making your final decision. For the electric options, we will briefly cover both the corded and the cordless grass trimmers as you have the choice of either working with a power cord or going down the battery powered cordless route.

There is also a significant price difference between the corded version and the cordless version so if you want a basic option at the lowest possible price, then the corded grass trimmer from Hyundai is the way to go. Nevertheless, we will outline our review for all 3 options here which will cover the corded, the cordless and the petrol-powered push options that are supported with wheels for larger type grass trimming jobs.

The one thing we liked about the petrol versions is that you have less arm and hand fatigue when completing jobs that take over 1 hour to do. Handheld trimmers are fine but after a while, your arms do start to ache a bit so the petrol wheel supported trimmers here was certainly a great help for the larger heavier duty jobs.

Key Features in Summary:

Twin line cutting system
Edge trimming and weeds
Front trimmer guard
Net weight is 1.7kg
240V power & 1.2mm line
Line length is 2m long
Warranty is 3 years

Grass Trimmer Description:

  • If you are looking for the cheapest grass trimmer from Hyundai, then this is the one for you as it usually seen on sale for less than £40 which compares well against other corded trimmer brands. The width is 25cm, so it is more geared towards smaller trimming jobs such as edging, around flower beds and difficult corners.
  • It is powered with a 250W electric motor and all you need to do to get started is to plug it into a standard power socket. Many other corded trimmers only have an 8m cord where this one from Hyundai offers a longer 10m cable cord.
  • The frame is small for easier storage in your shed and the weight is only 1.7kg which goes a long way to reduce arm fatigue when mowing for longer periods. It comes with a trimmer guard, a front handle, a manual and the gross weight is just 2kg.
  • Many other branded trimmers offer a single line but here you get a twin line system with a line diameter of 1.2mm and a line length of 2m. It comes with a UK 3 pin plug and it is covered with a 3 year warranty.

Pros:

  • Extremely lightweight and easy to use – less than 2kg
  • Lowest price option for bargain hunters
  • Easy off spool system & twin line cutting for standard basic jobs
  • Reliable 3 year warranty and back up support

Cons:

  • Limited to an area of 10m with the cord
  • Additional extension cords may be needed (extra expense)
  • No rotating head is included (but is available on the cordless)
  • Shaft cannot be extended so the length is not adjustable

Price Guide: Less than £40 @ Hyundai power Equipment UK

Grass Trimmer Description:

  • The 2nd grass trimmer option available from Hyundai is the Cordless battery powered Hyundai 60V Lithium-ion cordless Grass Trimmer ref code HYTR60LI which can also be bought also as a bare tool if you already have a 60V battery and charger in stock. The bare tool option is generally approx. £100 less than the full package.
  • Unlike many other lower priced trimmers, this grass trimmer comes with a superior and higher quality LG lithium-ion 2.5Ah battery which gives a much longer runtime and it is designed for 1k+ charges before you need to replace the battery so it will last for many seasons to come.
  • It has a 180 degree rotating head, a trimming width of 33cm, an aluminium rust free shaft and also an automatic single line feed with speed levels that can be varied. The rotating head is particularly useful when you need to trim under trampolines, benches or under garden furniture.
  • The handles can be folded down, the shaft can be extended when needed and assembly is done in less than 5 minutes. Like the corded trimmer, this cordless trimmer option is also covered with a 3 year warranty with service, parts and back up available from Hyundai in the UK.

Pros:

  • Includes the battery and charger but you can choose the bare tool also

  • Additional batteries if needed are more expensive than you think
  • Heavier duty trimming jobs deplete the battery a lot quicker

Price Guide: £180 to £220 @ Hyundai power Equipment UK

Part 4: Hyundai Petrol Grass Trimmer Review – 2 Options

There are 2 different petrol-powered grass trimmer solutions available from Hyundai which are summarised in brief below. These are more designed for larger projects or even commercial jobs where an electric powered trimmer is too small or lacks enough the power needed to tackle larger grasses, brambles and weeds.

For the average home owner, these petrol based trimmers would not be needed in our opinion but are definitely the way to go if you need to work on very large areas, paddocks and large estates as the smaller electric trimmers would be far too slow.

1, Hyundai Petrol 50.8cc Wheeled Grass Trimmer HYWT5080

Summary of Key Points:

2-stroke petrol engine with 50.8cc capacity
For heavier duty trimming jobs with wheel support
Designed for large gardens, heavy grasses & weeds
Trimming width 40 to 45cm – Nylon feed
Recoil cord engine start system
Suitable for commercial trimming jobs
Capable of tackling brambles, weeds and long grass
Price Guide: £180 to £220 (3 year warranty)

2, Hyundai 160cc Petrol Push Field Grass Trimmer HYFT56

Summary of Key Points:

5.5HP Hyundai four-stroke petrol engine
Superior power 160cc for heavy duty jobs
Wheeled support, soft grip handles
Adjustable trimming heights for uneven surfaces

Part 5: Conclusion:

Which grass trimmer would we choose? Our own personal preference would definitely be the Cordless battery powered grass trimmer here as it gives a lot more freedom to the areas you can work to and you don’t have to navigate any cables or cords as you work. That being said, if your lawn is small and it can be reached by 10m with a cord and you only need a trimmer for lighter trimming work around the edges or flower beds, then the corded model here will be sufficient for your needs. The petrol trimmers here are really for commercial larger type projects and personally I wouldn’t have a need for them so even though they work great, I don’t believe they are needed for small domestic type work.

What I liked from the cordless model here is the higher quality battery that lasted 30+ minutes, the rotating head to get underneath the trampoline and garden benches and also having the back up support, repairs and a 3 year warranty from Hyundai UK which goes a long way when making a final decision.
