Rigid blade lawn trimmers consist of a rigid rotating blade on the end of a long handle. The blade, made of either rigid plastic or steel, is used to cut through heavy brush.

We have encountered two cases of ocular trauma associated with rigid blade lawn trimmers, one of which occurred with the motor switched off.
