Trimmer Electric Champion Et1003a
A type of lawn engine, such as a trimmer, It is divided into several main categories: gasoline, battery, mechanical and electric. Each of them has a unique structure.
In gasoline ICE the fuel mixes with air until it enters the cylinder and then ignites from the spark of the spark plug. The power is regulated by the amount of mixture supplied, using the knob or gas pedal. A gasoline engine has a high speed and specific power with relatively low noise. Differs in simplicity of design. The main disadvantage. Fuel consumption.
Electrical engine It is issued not only by environmentally friendly work, but also by significantly lower noise level. For the electric motor to work, it is necessary to connect it to a power source, for example, a voltage of 220-380 volts to the mains.
The advantage of the battery type engine is that you do not need a permanent connection to the mains. The tool allows you to carry out intensive work until the battery runs out.
The number of revolutions of trim motors. This is the minimum or maximum possible number of shaft revolutions that can be allowed for normal engine operation. It is measured in revolutions per minute (rpm). Exceeding this parameter or a long operating time at maximum or minimum speed, leads to rapid wear of engine components. At high speeds, power and fuel consumption increase.
Trimmers are gasoline, electric or even rechargeable. They are equipped with engines that have different location. Most petrol trimmer models have top engine. Top engine trimmers are more practical, properly balanced and have high power, which is great for intensive lawn processing. Such engines have good cooling and are equipped to the maximum from mechanical damage and moisture.
With engine bottom, As a rule, electric trimmer models are available. They are characterized by low power and small overall dimensions. They are also poorly cooled and have some limitations on the duration of work. They have no protection against moisture and mechanical damage.
Voltage lawn machinery such as trimmer, measured in volts (V) and shows the required power level of the electrical network, as well as the level of insulation of electrical equipment. Transmission, distribution and transformation is carried out in accordance with the requirements of consumers and the capabilities of sources. The voltage values for the network are established by GOST.
Modern trimmers designed to care the lawn, depending on the model can be equipped with various cutting elements, which can be used for mowing a variety of vegetation.The most common attachment is considered fishing line or, as it is also called cord. The main purpose: mowing grass, in not very neglected areas (it is convenient to bypass fences, trees, buildings). It is wound on a special head, with the release of a pair of ends that serve as a cutting tool. They can be from 0.8 to 5 mm thick. Thick fishing lines are used on powerful gas trimmers and can cut large weeds, thick stems of dried grass and soft young growth of small shrubs. Fishing line up to 2 millimeters is mainly used on electric trimmers, as they have a less powerful engine and design.According to the method of release, fishing lines are divided into: manual, semi-automatic (cord is pulled out of the head when the operator presses it to the ground) and automatic (fishing line is pulled out to the desired length when gaining speed). In the latter case, there is a large consumption of fishing line, so the most popular are semi-automatic models.In the case when it is necessary to cut thicker grass or shrubs, a knife or disk is used. The knife can be made of plastic or metal and have a different number of blades. For the most difficult work (shrubs, small young trees), metal discs with a large number of teeth are used. Some models of trimmers can be equipped with a nozzle with a saw (height cutter), which is designed to cut tree branches.The ability to use knives and a blade depends on the engine power and trimmer design, you must strictly follow the instructions. On models with a curved bar, fishing lines and small plastic knives can be used.Metal knives and discs are used on straight-bar trimmers. Since this design is safer for the operator (the greater the distance from the cutting head, special handle, stop). When a knife or disk collides with a hard surface, it is often thrown back. In addition, a heavier tool creates a greater load on the nodes and components of the trimmer.
Trimmer Cutting Width. The width of the mowed grass of the cutting element per revolution. The larger the cutting element, the correspondingly, the more the treated area it captures during operation. The large mowing width is great for processing large open areas, in just a few passes you will finish the job.
Trimmer handle Designed for convenient trimmer control. It can be equipped with additional buttons that are responsible for the operation of the tool. The handle can be of various shapes: D-shaped, J-shaped, U-shaped, Y-shaped.
For instance, D-shaped handle great for handling small areas, but at the same time it requires high maneuverability from the operator. J-handle prevents approach to a bevel gear. This handle is ideal for working with a grass knife. The combination of these elements will make your work more productive and convenient.
Y and U shaped handles. The most popular trimmer handles, which are great for mowing in open space, while the mowing movements will be similar to the mowing movement of an ordinary scythe.
Height adjustment knob. A process that allows you to adjust the handles for a specific operator height. Correctly selected position will greatly facilitate the work trimmer. You do not need special tools to make adjustments. This feature greatly improves the working environment.
Weight. This is the mass of the machine in the assembled state (measured in kilograms). Despite the apparent insignificance of this parameter, it is worth paying attention to this important property of garden equipment. Weight affects mobility and quality lawn machinery. Too much weight can cause difficulties when unloading and loading into a car. A more heavy-duty vehicle may be required. Larger weight requires a more powerful engine with high fuel consumption. However, with a small mass, problems may arise, for example, with the quality of mowing the lawn.
Trimmer shoulder strap It is designed for comfortable wearing, and it will allow you to easily and quickly perform work, protect against accidents and reduce fatigue during prolonged use. It provides an even distribution of the weight of the device over the human body, which allows you to hold the trimmer for a long time in comfortable conditions. All straps and clamps are securely locked in a comfortable working position.

Convenient to mow under trees, the handle does not touch the bushes, no need to refuel, low weight, inexpensive
I specially chose an electric model of a trimmer so that I would not have to bother with gasoline. They bought a trimmer in addition to the lawnmower so that it could be mowed in hard-to-reach places where the lawnmower simply could not drive up. At first I thought that such a handle on the trimmer would not be very convenient, but it turned out the other way around. I’m not hitting anything, there is enough power to mow near trees and bushes. They took last year in a season at a price of about 4500 rubles came out.

I use one season, the ET1003A model is not the most budgetary, there was a cheaper option, but the power there is less, so I decided to take this trimmer.
At a price about Bosch was 4000 rubles, bought at the beginning of the season, so it turned out more expensive. Nothing broke, once a month I use it stably, only I change the line and that’s it, and everything works.

Competent coil design,
Unreliability: worked for 2 seasons, for the third year gear reducer gears were grinding off.
In this model, the ill-conceived design of the gearbox, for more than 3 years, apparently, will not work for anyone.
I will say this, enough power for my small area. I am satisfied. Both I and my wife easily mow the plot. It is necessary to soberly evaluate the capabilities of any technology.I initially did not have high hopes for it, only 1000 kW, the simplest design, and low price. What to expect? But the purchase surprised in a good way. The trimmer cut a fairly high grass, weeds, and other thickets on the site.From significant advantages economical fuel consumption.You can safely take for small areas!
It worked for one season, the gear flew
Summer has not really started yet, and Champion has already failed. Something has melted there, it cannot be repaired. She worked only 2 seasons. Before that, there was a trimmer from Oleo-poppy, worked for 10 years. But now the hand does not rise to give so much for it, because there is no guarantee that it will work as much. So I will try other budget brands
After three years of non-intensive operation, the gearbox failed. Dismantled the gearbox, the gear teeth were erased. It is necessary to periodically put grease into the gearbox.
Unreliable top gear design
Enough for one season, an autopsy showed complete wear of the gears on the rotor shaft, it did not smell lubricated. According to estimates, the repair is not cost-effective. I will watch the models with a lower gear, repair is easier.

Very light model
I would like a longer cable
I use with an extension cord, the last mower was with a lower engine, with the upper one it is still more convenient. Kosh about once every 2 weeks, knocks down the grass well, does not jam, the speed is optimal, for a small area of 5 acres I recommend this option.
Mowed a plot of 4 acres. There wasn’t enough a doge for one season. The gearbox flew. They refused to repair the workshop under warranty. Although they said that it was a disease of all such trimmers

Good quality, reliability
Sometimes the extension cord has to be connected
The test model for your favorite hands, even women’s. My wife especially loved this champion braid.We calmly have enough productivity to cut grass on a plot of 4 acres. If necessary, if it falls short, we connect the extension cord.Already worked 2 seasons, still alive. And at first I doubted that it would not last long. It turned out that the quality is good, and the money was quite ridiculous by that standards. And now it’s worth a penny.Great purchase turned out to be. Thanks to the manufacturer
There is no grease in the gearbox, the sticky handle.
I bought a trimmer last year. I mowed about 15 acres. Everything is fine. But1) A very flimsy handle that cracked. (I had to reanimate it with cold welding)2) The gearbox died on the 2nd season of operation.Cut off all the teeth (as the autopsy showed, there was no lubrication)After the purchase, I advise you to remove the cover, grease everything that is possible, put solid oil in the gearbox and it will probably serve you well. And I have to look for a new trimmer, as I could not find the gearbox, and if I find it, its cost will be approximately equal the cost of the whole trimmer.
Power! Exactly what is needed! Does not hurt, does not mow less, but “smooths” the grass. Yes, and the weight is optimal. Hands do not pull!
I do not even know. No flaws!
The price of 3520 just pushes to buy! And a manufacturer with a name! However, the decision to purchase is yours! Good luck to everyone in lawn mowing!
Yes, everything is fine, but there is one thing.
Trimmer head, or rather its design. On the old trimmer, a different principle was made
During the second mowing, a piece of cloth lying on the ground was wound. The trimmer braked. Turned off Everything is OK. Gorgeous. Unwound, turned on. It works as before. Squinted a little more and I think “let me make the fishing line longer. Figs there. The bolt securing the trimmer head is tightened so that it cannot be unscrewed. Dismantled, clamped with gas keys. Turns but does not turn off. Apparently, the entire trimmer head will have to be changed ((

Light weight, optimal mowing area, small spread of grass on the sides. Slow model.
Seems like a very flimsy Chinese.
They took a replacement after the breakdown of the Chinese trimmer Castor. At first, the model seemed quite flimsy due to its light weight (3 kg lighter than Castor).However in work “Champion” shows itself in the same way as its predecessor. Also about 40 cm mowing zone, does not fly into the eyes, does not overheat. We give the trimmer a rest regularly after 40 minutes of work. All summer worked well. The grass is not wound, it is easily cleaned before storage. The instruction is good, it was a little difficult to wind the line over it. 2 hours to deal with the new mechanism of the coil.
Fairly wraps grass, knife installation is not provided.
