How does it work?
We begin by building a list of strimmers with more than 50 ratings. This jumps straight to established products. We can see how they've actually performed over time, according to owners.
We remove any strimmers with less than a 4 star rating. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion.
After sorting the product list by ratings, we publish this Top 5.
