11 best trimmer line manufacturers

* Review of the best according to the editors of ecdfburma.org. About the selection criteria. This material is subjective, is not an advertisement and does not serve as a guide to the purchase. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Electric trimmers and petrol scythes cut grass by rotating the cord. The two ends of the string provide easy dissection of the stems and do not blunt when they collide with stones, as is the case with steel knives. If you choose the wrong cutting element, then the brushcutter will leave gaps. In other situations, there will be an increased load on the engine or it will often be necessary to stop the process to lengthen the broken ends. To facilitate the choice of equipment for garden tools, we have prepared a rating of the best manufacturers of fishing line for trimmer. When compiling the TOP-11, our experts took into account both the characteristics of the products and customer reviews.

How to choose a fishing line for a trimmer

Before considering the rating of the best manufacturers, we will touch on the criteria for choosing the fishing line for the trimmer:

  1. Cord material. When buying a fishing line, you need to be interested in what it is made of. The more ductile the material, the less often the lace will break off. The best ones here will be polyamide monofilament and nylon. For particularly coarse grass (such as burdocks), reinforced tooling is used that contains a steel string inside.
  2. Sectional shape. Fishing line is available in four configurations. Round is considered universal and is used for mowing all types of vegetation. She also easily wraps around the spool. The asterisk and square, due to pronounced faces, easily cut off rough and overripe grass. The twisted cord emits noise 50% less than other types of fishing line, therefore it is optimal for continuous operation.
  3. Diameter. The indicator varies from 1.3 to 5.0 mm. Strength and load on the motor depend on it. 1.3-2.0 mm are suitable for trimmers with a power of 0.7-1.0 kW. 2.4 mm is chosen for electric trimmers with a power of 1.4 kW, as well as semi-professional scythes. 2.7-5.0 mm is a tooling for professional garden equipment.

The first place in the ranking is occupied by the American company Oregon, which has been operating since 1947. Now the manufacturer is part of the Blount Inc concern and produces thousands of products for the care of the garden. The assortment of scaffolds for the trimmer includes more than 10 separate rulers produced with various shapes and diameters. You can buy a reel with a cord length of 30 to 60 m, which ensures long-term operation without changing the spool. For wholesale customers, the manufacturer offers fishing line in bays of 520 m each. Customers in reviews like the Techni -280 line, which has a high temperature threshold and is suitable for cutting dry grass on stony ground and for long periods of time.

Our experts put the manufacturer in first place in the ranking, because he has several interesting lines of fishing line for the trimmer, characterized by increased strength. Patented technologies have been applied in the Nyliun Starline and Flexiblade series. In them, the manufacturer added aluminum chips, which reduces wear and extends the life of the tool.

Rating: 4.9

The second place is taken by a domestic company established in 2005 and having production facilities in China. Despite the factories in the Middle Kingdom, components and raw materials for numerous products are supplied from the USA, India and European countries, which gives good quality and reasonable price. For example, for the manufacture of fishing line for trimmers, the manufacturer uses raw materials from France. In assortment there is a fishing line for a trimmer in red, green and black. The manufacturer offers a range of: Round, Twisted Square, Star, Spiral Pro. Buyers in reviews praise the goods for picking with a special knife, which is convenient to cut the cord without additional tools.

We included the manufacturer in the rating because of the presence in the catalog of an especially durable Twisted Square fishing line, produced with a diameter of 4.8 mm. This is not offered by all participants in the rating. The product is optimal for mowing the roughest grass and even ragweed stalks growing waist-high. Users in the reviews note that the configuration of the "star" does not allow caking due to the passage of air, and is easily served even during the rotation of the spool.

  • convenient colorization;
  • diameters from 1.3 to 4.8 mm are used;

Rating: 4.8

The third place in the ranking belongs to the Swedish manufacturer with a history of several centuries. It all started with the manufacture of weapons, and now the company has focused on gardening equipment and tools. Among the cord for the trimmer are skeins from 12 to 130 m. There are bays of 240 m each. Customers in the reviews like that most types of fishing line have a special coating that prevents the nylon from welding in the coil from heating. Feeding the cord during mowing is easy. Another manufacturer offers a fishing line with a special shape that resists breakage when exiting the head opening. This technology extends the life of the string. The cutting element is poured holistically and no fraying is observed at the ends.

According to our experts, the manufacturer deserves a place in the ranking of the best, since it produces more than 20 options for silent fishing line. During the rotation of such a snap, a sound is produced with a volume of 7-8 dB, so you can wield a trimmer for a long time without protective headphones. This is the best cord for caring for the green areas around schools, kindergartens and health facilities.


  • long working resource;
  • compatibility with any trimmer heads;
  • special shape to prevent fracture;
  • the ends are not separated.


  • high cost of goods;
  • small sizes (12 m) are sold without a coil - it is easy to confuse during storage and winding.


Rating: 4.7

The fourth place in the rating was given to the American manufacturer DDE, founded in 1965. Now the brand is the leader in the world in the production of electric motors, which include trimmers. The company offers them quality equipment manufactured in the United States. In the manufacturer’s catalog you can find goods with a length of 15 to 240 m. A cord of 2.0-4.0 mm is offered by thickness. Most models have reinforcement inside for increased strength. The cord is manufactured from a copolymer-thermoplastic brand Luran S. This provides increased wear resistance, despite heating and collisions with obstacles. The owners in the reviews share that the fishing line confidently withstands contact with reinforcement and pieces of concrete.

Our experts liked the manufacturer for its technology that increases the speed of the bevel, for which it was listed. On each coil, it is proudly indicated that using this particular cord will add 10% to the mowing speed. Another cord 2.4 mm in diameter is capable of interrupting burdock with a thickness of up to 5 cm, so there is no need to overpay for a thicker fishing line - if necessary, you can clear the summer cottage with such a section.

  • on five acres of thick grass less than 10 m is spent;
  • the line is resistant to collisions;
  • length range from 15 to 240 m.

Rating: 4.6

In fifth place in the ranking is the leading German manufacturer, which has been operating since 1886. Today, this company produces consumer goods, power tools and various equipment. In total, the brand has 5422 patents. The company offers the consumer fishing line for a trimmer with a diameter of 1.6, 2.4 and 3.5 mm. The product is produced in small packages of 24-40 m. The most commonly used round type of cross-section, since it is universal and the most popular. The equipment for electric braids is made of nylon with the addition of plasticizers to increase softness.

We included the manufacturer in the rating due to the special shape of the fishing line for trimmers. The company produces equipment often not in a reel, but individually, in the form of petals with a metal barrel. In length there are goods from 23 to 30 cm and are suitable for the Bosch trimmer line. Buyers in the reviews share that such a cord does not deform, maintains the integrity of the ends, wears out much more slowly than other options. If you bend your hands such a nylon string, then it does not burst.

  • good length of the petals is 23-30 cm;
  • increased strength and ductility;
  • good cord aerodynamics reduces fuel consumption on gas trimmers.


  • high price;
  • a small assortment of types of fishing line;
  • not applicable to all trimmers.


Rating: 4.5

Our rating is continued by a domestic manufacturer offering three main lines of fishing line for motokos: General with a star-shaped cross-section, Ultra-Pro, which is distinguished by subtlety and less noise, as well as Twistop, which is made with an ellipse. The last series with an elliptical cross-section is especially popular with customers in reviews, because it suits different types of vegetation, but is more durable than a circle. The company produces only the most "running" diameters of fishing line 2.4-3.0 mm. The buyer can choose a coil with winding from 15 to 114 m, depending on the size of the serviced area.

The main advantage for which the manufacturer was included in the rating of the best is the price of the fishing line for trimmers. The cost of goods is an order of magnitude lower than that of competitors, so this cord is more likely to be bought to care for a summer cottage or a house adjoining territory. But budgeting affected the strength of the string, so it will not be suitable for professional activities. Another advantage of the manufacturer is the presence of a heptagonal cord model. Due to the numerous ribs, it cuts the grass faster, which increases productivity.


  • cuts hard, dry grass;
  • attractive cost;
  • made of nylon;
  • packaging with a thread length of 15 to 114 m.


  • wears out quickly;
  • increased fragility;
  • can not be used in areas with stones.

In seventh place in the ranking is the Dolmar brand. His fishing line for trimmers is an original consumable item for Makita electric and motokos. The manufacturer himself is located in Germany and supplies equipment for an elite company. High strength nylon is used as the basis for the manufacture. Patented technologies are applied to it, increasing the strength and elasticity of the string. Buyers in the reviews are pleased that you can buy a cord length of 3.5 m, which is practical with a small garden plot and helps to save. For spacious green areas there are skeins of 100 m.

The “calling card” of this manufacturer is a line with a twisted square, for which the brand is placed in the rating. The twisted structure effectively reduces the noise from rotation on the spindle, and the presence of faces provides an easy cut of the stems. Since the square is twisted, the load from the collision with the stems is evenly distributed along the lace and the equipment lasts a long time. This famous product is sold in blue, and a measuring scale is provided on the box to accurately set the ends of the spool according to the instructions.


  • superior flexibility;
  • long service life;
  • not afraid of a collision with stones and iron bars;
  • a thick section of 2.4-3.0 mm copes with stiff stems.

Rating: 4.3

We gave the eighth place in the rating to the Japanese manufacturer of garden equipment and supplies, which began operations in 1947. Since 2000, the company has been actively producing motor-scythes with easy engine start. To them, the manufacturer offers several lines of woods: Cross Line and Fire in red, Round Line with a yellow tint and Titanium Power with a silver overflow. All products are not sealed in mica, but in durable plastic cases that simplify the storage of residues and transportation.

The manufacturer does not lag behind world trends for improvement and also offers fishing line with a cross-section in the form of a twisted square. In order not to merge with competitors, it is released in black and it is called Black Diamond. Buyers in the reviews share that it is great for cutting reeds and reeds. This product from the rating is useful to those who have a garden plot facing the river or lake.

  • low consumption for kinks and abrasion;
  • Available in skeins from 10 to 324 m.

The ninth place in the rating belongs to an Italian manufacturer specializing in garden and landscape gardening equipment. Motokosa brand are in great demand, and developers are constantly experimenting with new technologies in relation to fishing line for trimmers. Now the concern has several factories in Europe, so on the packaging with cord you can find the inscription Made in France and others. All this will be original products that comply with the ISO certificate obtained by the manufacturer back in 2001. The assortment does not have a division into rulers by name, but there are all types of sections (square, circle and star). For owners of small plots, you can buy a piece on a reel, 8 m long. The maximum length of the lace on the bobbin is 242 m.

We added the manufacturer to the rating due to the optimal ratio of the price of the goods and the quality of the cut.

In the top ten of our rating is another manufacturer that has been operating in Germany since the beginning of the 21st century. Now its industrial facilities are located in China, which has reduced the cost of production due to cheaper labor. The company produces an attractive fishing line for trimmers, characterized by bright colors - instead of traditional, red and yellow, the brand supplies shoelaces of light green and orange. The equipment is produced both in coils and turns, and cut into strips for different models of trimmers. In diameters there are options from 1.6 to 4.0 mm. Buyers praise the heptagonal cord for high performance.

Our experts added the manufacturer to the rating due to the presence of a particularly durable cord GT3535-2.4-S, which is available with an additional inscription Metal Power. The steel core inside the nylon braid increases the strength of the cutting element and extends its life by 50%, compared with other models. You can also find reels in the manufacturer’s catalog that hold 490-775 m of fishing line for a trimmer, which is beneficial for owners of spacious gardens or public utilities.

Rating: 4.0

Our rating is completed by an American manufacturer, whose products have long been manufactured in factories in China. The range of woods is presented in several series: Roundline with yellow, Starline in green, Standart with light green tint and black Profiline, which is a twisted square. The company focused on the most running diameters from 1.6 to 3.0 mm, so it is impossible to find a thicker cord. According to reviews, it is clear that the fishing line of this manufacturer is easily refueled into the spool and fits different trimmers. But the cords are sold only 15 meters long and only a few copies are 60 meters in size, so the goods are more suitable for domestic use.

The pride of the manufacturer is a two-color Duoline fishing line. It is pink and white in color, as it is made of polyamide and is additionally reinforced with polymer. This technology gives increased strength, for which the product was ranked. Buyers in the reviews share that it’s even difficult to cut it with a knife, which testifies to the strength, but makes installation in the trimmer a bit difficult.


  • easily mows weeds;
  • soft and supple;
  • affordable price;
  • diameters from 1.6 to 3.0 mm for any need.


  • difficult to cut with a knife for installation in the trimmer;
  • almost the entire cord is delivered in coils of 15 m - there are few large coils.
