What is a whipper snipper?

When you need to trim or neaten the edges of your lawn/garden, a whipper snipper is generally your first option. Also known as line trimmers and grass trimmers, a whipper snipper is designed for more precise lawn care than a lawn mower. Cordless whipper snippers provide you with the freedom and versatility to tame the wilds of your backyard. 

How does a pressure washer work?

Eliminate the pressure of tough cleaning jobs with the cleaning power of a pressure washer. Whether you prefer the efficiency of an electric pressure washer or the force of a heavy-duty petrol pressure washer, you can easily wash away grime and dirt.

A pressure washer functions using a water pump and motor. As water flows into the water tank from the connected tap, high pressure is built up within the pressure cleaner, released as a high-powered burst of water when the trigger is pressed. For a variety of different cleaning tasks, pressure washers can be equipped with an assortment of multi-purpose washer accessories such as spray guns, sprayers, hose wheels, and more. 

How to use an air compressor

A versatile tool for tool boxes and job sites, an air compressor or portable air compressor can be used to pump-up objects, used as a tyre inflator for push bikes and vehicles, or to power air tools. With a range of belt-drive and direct-drive air compressors, you can discover the ideal model with high-pressure air flow for all your garden maintenance needs.

Using an air compressor isn’t as hard as it may seem. The first step is to check over the machine, making sure the dials and hoses are connected and secured. Depending on the type of air compressor, you’ll need to prep the unit for use. Electric air compressors need to be plugged into an outlet, oil air compressors need to be topped up with oil, and petrol air compressors require fuel. Check the manual to see what prep you need to perform for your air compressor.

Once the machine is ready for use, you simply need to adjust the pressure to the desired level which will begin to fill the air tank. Connect the hose to what you need to inflate and use the compressor. 

What is a hedge trimmer?

A hedge trimmer is a power tool composed of a long cutting blade designed to trim hedges, bushes, and trees. Choose from a variety of petrol hedge trimmers and lithium-ion electric hedge trimmers to tackle DIY and garden projects. Whether it’s tidying up your backyard or creating your very first topiary, a hedge trimmer is a must-have garden power tool. 

How to use a drill

A cordless drill is an essential power tool for the toolbox, ideal for professionals and DIY-newbies. To use a drill, you must first make sure the battery is securely connected to the base and has adequate charge. To install a driver bit, simply hold the handle of the drill with one hand and turn the chuck (clamp at the front of the drill) counterclockwise. Insert the drill bit and turn the chuck clockwise to tighten the clamp.

Depending on the task, you may need to use the forward/reverse switch to adjust the spin direction. Once all that is set up, many drills offer a variable speed trigger to increase the spin speed the tighter the trigger is squeezed.
