V31087 - Worx GT 18V Lithium 2-in-1 Cordless Trimmer/ Edger
GOOD MONEY DOWN THE DRAIN
I purchase this product last may of last year.and now a year later it dose not work i'm not sure if it the battery or the charger or both. but i'm very disappointed in this product.
I have owned this trimmer since spring 2010.It works great.I can change the spools easily.It cuts through alot of high grass and weeds at our house.Consistent gardeners we are not.I have 3 acres so I can take it anywhere without a huge cord attached or a heavy gas engine.Only drawback is the battery only lasts about 30 minutes.If you had a backup battery you'd be all set.
Spool holder broke after a few uses.
I wrote customer service as soon as the spool holder broke. It was very flimsy and it took with it two new spools. They offered to replace the cover and send new spools immediately. I have yet to receive them and this was weeks ago. It has been back and forth asking where the replacements are and customer service simply replying they were sent and "we hope you are enjoying your replacements". It is a shame because when this trimmer worked it was really handy but it broke very fast. Customer service was and is a nightmare. I won't buy from them again simply for all the aggravation they have caused. Hope to get those new parts arrive before it snows!
Best Trimmer We've Ever Had
I got this for my dad. He LOVES it! The fact that it can be adjusted to accommodate different types of edges, etc. has been really helpful. I am so glad that I bought this for him. It goes well with the Worx blower/vacuum that I gave him as well. Worx products have really been top-notch for us.
Effective for small area trimming
I purchased this item to trim the front area of my townhouse. The trimmer did the work just fine. Assembly is near to none, except when changing the spool. I would recommend to the manufacturer to make a cap/cover that stays more secure on the spool as the one I had flew off after the 6th or 7th use. Customer Service people at Worx are knowledgeable and courteous. Free spools for life a huge plus for me to purchase this item.
Save your money
I used it a few times then it would lose it's charge before I finished my yard. Downhill after that. Wouldn't keep a charge. Didn't work on anything other than very fine grass.
Big disappointment! Threw it out this spring.
Wouldn't trade it for the world!
I must be one of the lucky ones! I've owned trimmer/edger for over three yrs. I am a senior and female and its wonderful! My yard is marveled by all my neighbors. I have someone who cuts my yard but I refuse to let him Edge! I do it myself. The battery sometimes run out but I have a backup battery. Best product for us female seniors!!!
Very disappointed in this item. When it worked - about 30 days, it worked fine. But soon after the battery would no longer charge and shortly after that the charger itself quit. Probably better to stick with the usual suspects when it comes to trimmers. Bought a Ryobi to replace this and have had zero problems.
I really wasn't sure how something that didn't weight much could work so well. I was very surprised and very very happy with the Trimmer/Edger. Other Trimmers are so heavy and I always get someone else to do that job for me. I will be doing it myself now.
Needs some work
Love that it is light weight and is adjustable. If you are trying to cut grass that is thicker or you have some weed this will not work. Works well if you have just some light areas to cut.
String seem to break often and then you have to tip over to push button to feed the line.
easy to use
Bought about a month ago, Easy to use for a woman. My first ever trimming and edging of the lawn by myself turned out so well. As for the complaints about it not holding a charge - the directions do tell you to have it plugged in like 12 hours for the first use. Perhaps you didn't charge it long enough?? I too had trouble with the string going back inside at first and had to put on another spool but it was fine after that.
not so happy
I ordered this cordless trimmer and before I finished using it the first time the spool of line came flying off in pieces.. I think my electric trimmer has given me better service and does a better job than this. I had watch the promos for this product for several months before buying and then was very disappointed. I boxed it up and sent it back. I would not recommend this product to no one
