  • Simple Electric Start

    The Weed Eater One is fully electric start, all you have to do is turn the key. A convenient pull-start backup is located on the engine, should the battery be discharged. Once cranked with the pull cord, the battery will recharge.

  • Adjustable Cutting Height

    A simple control on the left allows the operator to adjust the cutting height from approximately 1.5 to 4 inches. Also convenient for passing over stumps!

  • Quality Drive System

    Features three drive speeds; speed one is for edging, speed two is for regular grass cutting, and three is for faster transport. Release your foot while in any of the three forward gears and you will be in cruise control for a relaxed cut.

  • Compact Size

    Spans approximately 36 inches wide, allowing it to easily fit through a standard yard gate, just lift up the deck chute handle. The Weed Eater One stores flatter against the wall in a garage and with its ability to maneuver in tight spaces, it reduces the need to touch up areas with a push mower or string trimmer, saving you time and money on quality results.

  • Easy to Operate

    An intuitive and easy to use pedal allows the operator to control the brake and clutch with one foot. Pressing down applies the brake, while lifting engages the clutch to propel forward.

  • Deep Draw Cutting Deck

    The 26 inch cutting deck is made of 13 gauge steel and can handle all the bumps and bruises without denting. The deeper deck combined with an efficent single blade design allows for superior airflow resulting in a more uniform cut quality and reduced chance of scalping in uneven terrain.

  • Ergonomic Design

    Features a wide step-through frame with incorporated non-slip foot rests so you can mount and dismount safely from either side. Provides a comfortable ride with soft-touch levers and controls, a high-back seat, and a soft grip steering wheel.

  • Discharge Chute

    Designed in concert with the deck for optimum cutting performance. Incorporates an effortless lever for easy lifting of chute when passing through narrow areas and for reducing the overall width for storage.

    *Discharge chute should only be lifted when blades are not engaged

  • Briggs & Stratton Engine

    Powered by an 875 series Briggs engine that features an air management system with dual-sealing commercial grade air cleaners for less debris intake and longer life. A large tube outlet muffler provides a significantly quieter operation and exceptional tonal quality.
