3.0 out of 5 stars Good not Great, April 21, 2011
This review is from: WORX WG165 10-Inch 24-Volt LithiumPower Cordless Grass/String Trimmer and Edger (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Lawn & Patio)
After watching the infomercial several times , I decided to purchase this trimmer . I went ahead and bought the 24 volt battery model because of the extra power . After getting it home , I charged the battery for three hours then headed for my yard , I have a medium size yard that normally takes 30 to 35 minutes to trim . I trimmed the entire back yard and got close to half of the front done when the battery died . The bottom line on this trimmer is this , if you have a fairly small yard and you have just some basic trimming to do then the Worx trimmer would be fine . However , if you have a big yard and you have areas of tall grass or weeds youre looking to trim , this trimmer will not get it done . Two drawbacks on this trimmer is the motor is simply not powerful enough to handle tall thick grass . The other is the diameter of the double helix cutting line . It is a smaller line than a typical weedeater line and for that reason it will not handle tall weeds and grass . At the end of the day , its an ok trimmer for small household jobs . If youre looking for a workhorse trimmer to replace your old one , the Worx Gt is not it .

You didn't read the directions concerning charging it the first time maybe?

The most important charge is the 1st charge.
You should not have started trimming until the special 1st time charge was done.
Fully charge it according to the directions & then report back.
It may perform better or at least longer.

It's not designed to cut thick grasses. But it can't be beat for lawns!

My teachers used to tell me, 'repeat after me'! So as your teacher =-) It's not a weed eater, it's a trimmer!

Buy a second battery. The convenience of cordess is worth having to use two batteries.

If you buy the quick charger, two batteries can be used in alternation (one charging while the other is being used) to trim very large yards.

That's why people buy cordless drill combos with two batteries. So one is always ready to go, and one is charging; especially contractors do this. The added expense of another battery for a trimmer sux though.

I agree with most this post. It is a fair review in my opinion. I have had this trimmer for two seasons and am happy with it, but it is a light duty trimmer with limitations, not a heavy duty work horse. I have a large yard and am buying a second battery this year so I don't have to wait so long between charges to finish my yard. Not a complaint so much as a limitation of a light duty unit such as this product. Yes it will trim thick heavy grass and weeds to a point, but at the expense of reduced run time and increased use of the small diameter line. The product has met my expectations. I agree with the three star rating.
