Before the TAS Trimmer, life was different. Irrigation maintenance techs spent days either on their hands and knees digging around sprinkler heads with a knife or bent over each sprinkler head with a back breaking manual tool. Neither option was desirable or efficient. This is why I invented the TAS Trimmer, sprinkler head trimmer, for irrigation maintenance.
The TAS Trimmer blade mounts on any straight shaft line trimmer. Once installed, the TAS Trimmer is ready to trim grass away from sprinkler heads, valve boxes, yardage markers and tee markers in a flash. The job of irrigation maintenance that once took days of back breaking work can now be done in just hours. The amount of time and energy saved is so great that it's nearly immeasurable. Considering the affordable price and the amount of money saved, it's really no wonder the TAS Trimmer is the #1 choice of landscape & golf course irrigation professionals.

If you don't know your make/model irrigation system you will need to measure the diameter of your heads. Some systems have several different sizes so be sure to check them all. Once you have determined the diameter of an irrigation head, choose the TAS Trimmer that is larger in size but closest to the diameter of the irrigation head.
