Bought this trimmer mostly to tame the four-foot jungle of thistle in the back yard. Out of the box the trimmer is a little awkward to carry but pretty adjustable. Holding it got better with practice. I was immediately impressed with the power, but was soon quite frustrated with the installed line. It is terrible! I used it up (which didn't take long) and went to buy larger, commercial grade line. Then this trimmer really came to life. I finished what the old line left in no time. Since it was there, I decided to try the edging feature and was very happy.

What I like:
- It is powerful! It will tear through thick thistle and aspen shoots.
- The edging function is easy to set up and use.
- The auto feed is nice (still works with thicker line). It will go through line if you turn it on and off a lot.

What I don't like:
- It can be difficult to hold efficiently
- The line it came with is terrible (it was easy to replace though)

This trimmer is POWERFUL. Let me stress that again, and warn you to wear protective gear, and practice on the back yard before you try to finesse the front. I've owned gas trimmers, battery powered electric, and one corded electric, and this one kicks the snot out of all of them. The grip takes a little getting used to, but once you do, you'll be doing fancy edges to your lawn, and getting in close to your shrubs, without stripping off their bark, with no sweat. The rotating head is an awesome feature, and one that I initially under-rated. I did have to advance the line manually once, but that was in the very beginning, when I decided to dig to China with the thing (before I got used to it). All in all, I'm very pleased with this trimmer.

*Update*
A year and some change later, and even my brother has to admit that this is a great trimmer, despite being skeptical at first. It performs now just as it did out of the box, with clean edging even in tight spots. The wheels really help as guides around concrete, which I forgot to mention in the original review.

My first order came in a very beat up box and had parts missing. Amazon customer service was stellar and immediately helped me get a replacement. It arrived today (the box was even MORE beat up this time around but at least had all of the parts listed in the manual. Put it together and tried it around the yard .

Two stars for the power, otherwise a 1 star trimmer due to mediocre design. Provides good power and trimming ability but the edging function leaves a lot to be desired. The wheels are a great idea to assist with edging but unfortunately they do not rotate smoothly. The metal guide that is there help guide your edging efforts is located about 2 inches or so away from the actual cutting line itself, making it difficult to tell where you're actually edging. I cut my grass a good inch or two away from the actual edge of where the grass meets the side path, leaving the grass I intended to cut still hanging over the edge. Be aware that the support handle cannot slide up and down the length of the shaft. This is a usability problem because electric trimmers have most of their weight at end away from the handles as opposed to gas trimmers being vice versa. Being able to slide the handle down the shaft would greatly increasing the ease of handling since the support handle fulcrum would be closer to the heavier end of the trimmer. Also, the automatic line feeding wasn't working consistently which was really frustrating while edging, especially since the line seemed pretty weak and broke a surprising amount. Got my return label from Amazon - sending this one back today and looking for another brand.

WOW, this thing really does the trick. The only issue is pulling a cord around while using it. But that is much easier for me than fooling with a gas trimmer.

My house has a lot of areas that require a string trimmer. I have never had any luck for gas trimmers and did not want to mess with a two stroke motor. I already had a long extension cord but also bought a reel to manage it.

The trimmer has an incredible amount of power and feels like it could cut down a tree! Unlike gas trimmers, the power is there immediately after you pull the trigger. There is no walking around revving it up and having to crank the pull string for 20 minutes. Just plug it in and start trimming.

I bought a large spool of trimming line and and an extra head to go along with this. I manually respool the heads which is much cheaper than buying the prespooled ones which run out rather quickly.

works great, except the line that comes with it is crap, go out and buy high quality line, next size up(.080) asap.
I beat the hell out of it and it's still going strong. if only the guard was a bit deeper it wouldn't fill you pants up with weeds.
good deal for 60+bucks though 3year warrantee is good as well

Within five minutes of plugging the trimmer in, I had opened up the trimmer head to fix the string four times. You have one job, string trimmer: make the string happen. Don't screw this up. I just threw away another string trimmer for the exact same reason. You were supposed to be the chosen one, WORX! :'(

You failed at that, and so it's back to Amazon you go.

I am a 5'4" tall woman. Standard trimmers are awkward for me because they were designed for taller people. This trimmer is great because you can adjust the length of the shaft. You can also adjust the angle of the holding handle and the cutting head. So I was able to get it perfectly adjusted for me. I had been using rechargeable trimmers before, so I can't remember how this compares to a standard gas model. But it has way more power than my Yardsticks did. I can't imagine ever wanting another trimmer.

I have never had a grass trimmer that didn't get the line wrapped up every 5 min. This TRIMMER WORKS GREAT. It is light and has enough power to edge everything quickly. I am 6'2" and it isn't too short for me because you can adjust everything.
