Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by golf4evr Lightweight, easy to use and 2/1 features are a snap!
I read all the reviews about the battery life and have no
problems in the first month of use. I followed the manual first charge instructions and have run the battery til fully
discharged, allowed time for the battery to cool and then
recharge the battery. Each charge has lasted over 45 minutes which is plenty of time to trim and edge both of our
large lawns. Also, I do not store the battery on the trimmer.
So far, there are no issues with the auto-spooling system.
This cordless trimmer is so much easier to use than our gas trimmer! Being so lightweight my wife can easily use
the trimmer! I wish we'd bought the Worx GT sooner!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Termin8r Can't hold a charge.
I've had one of these trimmers for 2 years now and even went to HD and purchased a back battery. I'm buying a gas trimmer for the following reason.
The batteries don't hold a charge and I have found that you have to use the battery right after it is charged. If you let it sit for a week the battery dies. Even after a full charge it doesn't hold it very long.
During the first year of use I probably used it all of a dozen time before I started having battery issues. Even the back up I purchased last year dies if not used after a full charge.
Don't waste your money on Worx. It did a nice job at first.
It isn't that light weight and the balance is okay. It's a pain to adjust.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YardGuy Great for small or medium size yard
This is a great trimmer if you have a small or medium size yard! Quality product. It gets the job done for trimming and the line feeds automatically. The edger works well if you have a steady hand. Sometimes I go over the edging twice to make it look the way I want. I charged the battery for 5 hours before the first use and always disconnect the battery from the tool in between uses. It has not died on me and I've had it going strong for 45 min to an hour after full charge. I've only used it 3 times so far, but I'm happy with it. The battery hopefully continues to perform over time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jason I love it. Work's 20 minutes and always has line ready.
I use it as a trimmer and edger. It is lighter, easer and little sound. I have a large counter lot which takes two chargings. One for trimming and one for edging with some charge left. The line always automaticly advances correctly and 1 spoll lasted around 200 minutes. The line cut very well and is easy to respoll. I have used the Worx 2-in-1 24v Li-Ion trimmer/edger for over 3 months. It fits my needs very well. After 20 minutes I ready for a break also. O charge time is about 90 min.My gas trimmer took longer to cut my yard and could not edge (and was quite a hassel).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bruno 10 in. 24-Volt Cordless Electric Grass Trimmer
The Worx trimmer that I purchased in 2010 has not lived up to expectations. First, the charge time is lengthy (about five hours), and the usage time is short, (about 20 minutes). Also, the spools have proved to be a problem. There is not much line, and often I have to pull the line out of the spool becuase it does not lengthen automatically. Today, my second battery died. I will not be replacing the battery because I can buy a more durable trimmer for only a few dollars more. I would not recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarlVB Great tool for large property maintenance.
I've only had the trimmer a short time. However, I have used it extensively around our property. We have more then two acres with many trees. I've trimmed around all trees, walks, and beds twice on one battery charge. An ideal tool for yard maintenance where an electric cord is impractical.
Don’t expect it to do what a high powered gas trimmer or edgers are capable of though. I think this is the reason some are disappointed.
Bottom line, it was a grate choice for me. Would recommend it highly to friends.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RaeC First Battery Powered Trimmer-Battery life too short (30 mins)
I have used the trimmer twice since buying & both times the battery has only lasted 30 mins. I need it to last longer in order to complete both front & back yards. I am using it on grass only, nothing heavy duty. The line feeds really well, I like that just fine! The edger is great, it's the reason I purchased it. But unfortunately, I need longer battery life without having to purchase an additional battery. I am contemplating returning the trimmer.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jokersmith battery NO GOOD
I bought this item about 3 years ago. The original battery was good as it lasted enough to do my yard for the first year, then it slowly got less and less run time. The ease of use of the trimmer was great, I love the auto feed feature and the trim line lasted forever, maybe one spool a season.
Once the first battery was done, I purchased a new Ni-CD battery from the Worx website, it lasted for about 2 cycles and now won't hold a charge anymore. So the batteries are an issue.
