I need to order the trimmer head cover. It is listed as item #2 in the owners manual. Do you carry parts of this type in store?

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 118 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK so far but a little hard to use Batter life is good. Much easier to rotate the head between weed trimming and edging. Only issues are ergonomics. It is somewhat too long to use easily. I am six feet tall and it seems you need to hold it higher than most unit I've had in the past. Also, the 3 buttons that all need to be held in for it to run take a little time to get used to. OK, I understand safety, but this is a weed whacker not a nuclear weapon. Does it really need a triple redundant activation system! September 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Weed trimmer It was impossible to control three buttons to control this machine. Even my husband could not do it well. He won't use it. September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worx for me Okay, my first experience with a Trimmer & Edger. After reading all the specifications and information on it's use, I chose the 40V because of the reviews that other happy customers had written. My yard man had health issues and could no longer do my lawn and trimming. I am no spring chicken, and it looked to me that I could possibly do the trimming mysef. So this was my choice, and I, too, am very satisfied with it's overall performance. Interesting that I went to your website to look at the SwitchDriver Cordless Drill and instead bought this tool. Once I pay off this purchase, I have my eye on the cordless drill. That purchase will have to wait. Again, no disappointment with this product. Thanks, Worx May 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works like a Pro This was my first cordless trimmer and it does an excellent job just as good as my gas trimmer did. May 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad battery Unfortunately bad product. Was only able to use once. Took me awhile to fiddle with the battery to get a full charge. Used it one time which it ran good not to expectations but good. Since then hv not been able to fully charged battery. Waste of good money. Will not buy another Woxs product again. Far in superior to other products with well known names and for less. Ohhh and other products always provide what they promise and actually last longer than a one time use. Sorry Worx April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent compared to a Gas Trimmer After using a gas trimmer for years, I decided to try a cordless, battery trimmer. No gas mixing, no cord pulling, much lighter and easier to control, and works just as well as a gas trimmer. April 26, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sorry my experience has not been good the auto feed does not work and the manual release does not work my unit has no spring to release line I have to manually pull spool out to get more line very inconvenient. Worx is going to replace the trimmer But I was surprised after all the research I did and bought the upgrade 40v and had this problem I am sure when new unit comes it will work. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Power & excellent battery life Used it for the last month or so - impressed with the power (performs like a gas trimmer). Light weight and easy to use. 3 speeds adds offers much flexibility. I am not one who normally gives reviews . . . but this is one of the best trimmers I have ever used (battery or gas powered)!!
