My gas powered trimmer just quit working. I had such a hard time getting it started and keeping it running. So, when it quit I finally made the decision to buy a cordless battery operated trimmer.
With the WORX cordless there is no mess mixing the gas and oil. The trimmer line feeds automatically. You don't have to prime the gas and pull a cord. There is certainly nothing wrong with a gas trimmer I'm sure there are some quality gas trimmers on the market. They're just not for me.
I've also owned some electric trimmers. The problem for me is that you have to have outside outlets and then, drag the cord around the yard. Oh, and be careful not to cut the cord. Once again there is nothing wrong with electric trimmers, they're just not for me.
What I like about the WORX Cordless Trimmer and Edger.
- The main shaft is adjustable to fit your height.
- The handle adjusts up and down to a comfortable position for you.
- The trimmer head adjusts up or down.
- It has a set of wheels for edging. You adjust the trimmer head all the way down and flip it onto the wheels for easy edging.
- There is a button on the handle to automatically feed the trimmer line.
- Included are 2- 20V batteries and a charger.
- One spool of trimmer cord with 10 feet of cord.
Each battery has 4 hours of trimming life. I've haven't timed it but one battery will last me 4 times around my yard to trim and edge. That may be a little less than 4 hours but, I always have a battery charged.
When you buy a WORX you get spools of trimmer line free for life. All you have to do is go to their website and sign up. You'll pay about $9.00 shipping and handling and receive 6 spools of trimmer line. And, they are really easy to change.
I highly recommend the WORX cordless trimmer and edger. This tool had made trimming and edging my lawn so much easier.
