String Trimmer Cordless 12″ 18V

I am not an expert in gardening. Whenever i use the string edger for the grass cutting, the string is cut short faster than the grass. I tried different angle but it didnt’ work any better. Would you please instruct me the right way?
Thanks.

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

The most frequent cause of a line breakage is through contact with something in the garden. Usually this is the result of the cutting head being taken too close to objects, e.g. garden stones, paving edges, walls etc.
If the spool and line on your grass trimmer are fine but your trimmer still isn`t cutting properly, you`ll need to check if the blade on the trimmer`s guard is dull, broken or has come away.
The air filter or exhaust port may be blocked. The trimmer may need lubrication and cooling fins or air passages may be blocked. A cordless trimmer`s battery or charger may be faulty.
The most common possibility is you have push a bit hard. The other is possiblity is the moving blade is too forward. But usually most trimmers have a gap. Trying trimming using the blades at an angle which places the moving blade away from the skin.
If your trimmer engine idles, but stalls on throttle, check the following parts: the gasket, primer bulb, fuel filter, air filter, fuel vent, fuel line, and carburetor. The repair and symptom guide will help you better identify the part needed to be replaced and how.
The easiest way to identify that your Hedge Trimmer needs a sharpen is if the branches are not being cut cleanly. If your Hedge Trimmer leaves behind an uneven or frayed edge as it cuts, this indicates that you need to sharpen the blades.
What is the Difference? Lawn edgers are designed to cut edges and create boundary lines, whereas a string trimmer is designed to maintain those boundary lines. They make a great team! Both can help your lawn to look sharper.
You need to leave about six inches of string hanging from the spool when you are done adding your new string. You should use a heavy-duty pair of scissors to snip the string.
On average, a spool of trimmer line should last two to three months assuming an hour of use every week for most casual users. This can vary depending on the model of weed eater used, how strong the line is, and the type of grass and weeds you`re cutting with it.

Thicker trimmer line (up to 3mm) is designed for longer grass and can be used for medium-powered trimmers or brushcutters. The thickest trimmer line (3mm+) is usually twisted, serrated or square-shaped and is designed for long grass and low undergrowth.
During winter storage, trimmer line can age, become brittle or dry. This may result in poor working performance in the first spring cut. Trimmer line that has lost moisture due to extended storage can be submerged in water overnight. This may help revitalize the line and improve its life and performance.
