Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very powerful WAY more powerful than my gas-powered Echo weed trimmer. Battery lasts a long time. Cuts through the tallest grass on lowest setting. I may buy a second one for my wife to use. November 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this trimmer I Baught the 40 volt grass trimmer about 2 months ago and love it .. I love the one hour charging and the power it has.. I replaced a gas trimmer and on speed 1 the 40 volt trimmer has the same amount of power as my gas one did.. The only thing I don't like it the auto string feeder ... I feel you don't need string every time you start the trimmer, they should make a Differant button to advance string when starting the trimmer.. October 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by I love my WORX 40V Grass Trimmer I have two DR Trimmers and I quit using them since I bought my WORX trimmer. Yes, it's true the line feeder doesn't work very well, but how hard is it to lift this lightweight device up and press the string button. The string seems to last much longer than the DR Trimmer strings which are constantly breaking and a pain to change. The battery doesn't last as long as I would like, but I use the trimmer, then recharge it (which doesn't take long), then cut the grass and by then it's recharged and ready to go. I've thought about buying a 2nd battery but they are pretty expensive. It's so lightweight and easy to use! I really love my WORX trimmer! July 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by light weight The line does not feed automaticly. Is there any way to correct this? This is the first time that I have used it. The spool was wound at the factory. July 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worx WG168; good product, but read on for the caveat... This product has performed very well for me in all trimming and edging tasks I have put it through, and the battery has had ample capacity to do it on one charge. However, if Worx customer service can't send me the proper replacement spool on the upcoming third try, this enjoyable and capable tool is going to have to be returned due to unavailability of simple maintenance parts. My "yes" recommendation is conditional on the ability of Worx to supply the correct replacement string spools. September 7, 2013
