In the world of outdoor landscaping tools there are weed whackers and then there’s the Poulan Pro PP133 17-inch 33cc 2-Cycle Gas-Powered Straight-Shaft Attachment-Capable String Trimmer. This is a seriously powerful trimmer that is designed to literally tear through the densest brush, grass and tall weeds like a warm knife through butter. With a monstrous 33cc 2 cycle gasoline engine and a huge 17 inch cutting path this grass trimmer is powerful enough for the professional, but affordable enough for every day use around the house.
Designed for Heavy Use
While the Poulan Pro PP133 String Trimmer is reasonably priced, it may not be the ideal trimmer for people with very small yards. Chances are if you’re able to get out and take down your tall grass and weeds in 10 minutes or less, this trimmer may be a bit more than you actually need. But for people with ½ acre or more of property, or very large patches of high grass, or fields that fill up with fast-growing weeds, the Poulan Pro PP133 grass trimmer is ideal.
Reduced Noise Levels
With so much power under the hood, you might expect the Poulan Pro PP133 to be a real ear-splitter. Thankfully, though, the 2 cycle engine is relatively quiet, when compared to other grass trimmers in this price range. Don’t’ get us wrong here – you’ll still want to wear hearing protection when you operate this trimmer (as you should with any kind of power tool), but your neighbors are sure to appreciate the fact that this Poulan trimmer is quite a bit quieter than other gasoline-powered trimmers.
