What to consider when choosing a garden multi tool
When getting a multi-tool kit for your garden, there are a few things to keep in mind. Below are a few helpful tips to help you choose the model that is right for you starting with choosing between a petrol model and electric.
Consider the weight of the tool
The weight that a person can handle varies according to factors such as body weight, height, among other things. When selecting a multi-tool for your gardening needs, choose one that is not too heavy, as it might exhaust you quickly. There are tools made of lighter materials like aluminium that make portability an advantage. Weigh your options, literally. Petrol based engine tools are the heavier but offer more robust power. Generally, the more expensive petrol models are lighter, hence the higher price as they are made from lighter materials.
Build quality and general robustness

How much do you want to budget
