Remington RM25C 25cc 2-Cycle Gas String Trimmer (Review)

Remington RM25C is one of the cheapest gas string trimmers you can buy. It has 25cc 2-cycle engine and curved shaft design. So can a gas string trimmer this cheap be any good?


Remington RM25C has 16 inch cutting swath and uses 0.095’’ line with dual line bump head.

It cuts pretty well and is reasonably powerful. Not as powerful as more expensive gas string trimmers but definitely more powerful than similarly priced electric weed wackers. Cuts through thick and tall grass without much effort. It’s more than powerful enough for most consumers although for seriously tough jobs you will need a more serious unit.

One of the issues is that at times it’s almost impossible to start. Seriously sometimes by the time you manage to start you are already exhausted from all the pulling.

Remington RM25C cannot be converted into edger.


Remington RM25C is significantly heavier than electric string trimmers of this price class, however it’s lighter than some gas ones.

It has curved shaft design – whether that’s a good or a bad thing depends on your preference but most prefer straight shaft design.

It feels like it was designed for short people – if you are of average height or god forbid tall then you will find this unit to be too short which will cause discomfort while using it.

As expected for the budget pricing the build quality isn’t that great. It doesn’t feel sturdy or well made so it’s questionable how long it will last however it’s not that bad that it feels like it’s about to break any moment.


Remington RM25C cuts better than similarly priced electric string trimmer however it’s also a lot more finicky. Build quality isn’t good and string trimmer often takes ridiculous amounts of effort to start.

If you are looking for a string trimmer to purchase VBR would advise to avoid this model.
