Challenge Extreme 250w grass trimmer.
This is an incredibly cheap trimmer (£12.99 at Argos) and seems to be reasonable quality, certainly comparable with previous trimmers I've owned (a Black and Decker and a Flymo).
It's very easy to assemble out of the box, it's very light to use and very easy to extend the line when needed.
The line does break rather easily, but no more so than other trimmers I've had and my solution to this is to buy slightly thicker line, say 1.5mm.
The supply cable is too short (approx 5.7 metres) but this didn't bother me as I use the extension cable I've already got for my mower.
Not perfect, then, but the price certainly is and I'm very pleased with my purchase.
