From the manufacturer
Converts to an edger in seconds, with dual-positioned in-line wheels that make edging a breeze.
Portable and efficient, with a 12-inch cutting diameter that means more trimming in less time.
Adjusts to a mini-mower to maintain around landscaping or hard-to-reach areas.
The WORX cordless 20-volt MAX lithium powered grass trimmer has taken grass trimming and edging to a whole new level of power and function. With the 20-volts of MAX lithium battery power, the WG160 provides longer run times and more power. The 12-inch cutting diameter means more trimming in less time. Not only will this cordless trimmer convert to an edger in seconds, but it is also a mini mower. It has dual-positioned in-line wheels that make edging a breeze. The wheels can also be used as a "mowing-like" function for detailed trimming around landscape or hard to reach areas. A quick-release trigger lever is convenient for making easy height adjustments to the telescopic shaft for comfort and control. The trimmer head turns with a pull and turn to lock and convert to edging. The MAX lithium battery power means more battery capacity, longer runtimes, no self-discharge, no slow loss of power, less weight, more power and quicker charging times.Charge the battery within 3-hours and it will be ready when you need it with no-self discharge. From function to features, the 20-volt WORX trimmer and edger features 100% single line feed which means no bumping to extend the line. A flower space guard not only helps protect vegetation, it also acts as an edger guide. A front auxiliary handle has 7 locking adjustments for maximum comfort while trimming, edging, or mowing. Weighing in at only 6-pounds, this 20-volt grass trimmer, edger and mini mower will create a professional looking yard with less work, less fatigue and less time.

(a) Being hard to steer. To get a full depth of cut it needs to be held nearly vertical, and that of course means that it’s likely to wobble; replacing the wire guide by an idler flanged disc attached to the rotor, as on the Yardstick, would keep one perfectly on track regardless of angle, and
(b) No indication of battery charge. This would obviously be useful on a tool with limited battery life, and, as it turned out later, essential to avoid serious problems due to inability to distinguish between a flat battery and one that is overheating .
After I had used the trimmer for about 6 or 7 weeks and edged a total of perhaps 1,500 feet (about 200 feet per session, always on one battery charge), the trimmer suddenly cut out. I knew it was freshly charged, so assumed it was not out of power (but had no battery level indicator to help me…). As it was a hot day I thought it might have overheated, so let it rest and then tried again. It ran for a few seconds and again cut out. I let it cool some more, tried again; same result. So I charged the battery overnight. The trimmer ran for a few seconds and then cut out (on no load). I tried to call customer service but they had had some sort of telephone meltdown and were not available. Two days later I tried again, and was told to leave my number and they would call me back. That does not work for people like me who are teaching up in our canyons and either have a class or are out of signal range (or both). When I finally got through to customer service I was told that I should not have attempted to restart the trimmer once it stopped: doing so had caused fatal battery damage (I couldn’t find any warning about this in the original instructions). However, since everything was still under warranty (although not returnable to Amazon, unfortunately), they agreed to send me out a new battery.
I received the new battery, charged it overnight, and resumed trimming. After perhaps 10 minutes and about 175 feet the trimmer cut out again. I did not dare to try to restart it (even if it simply cut out because of overheating), since I had been told that doing so would ruin the replacement battery. I began trying to recharge it, but the charger light showed green, indicating (according to the manual) that the battery was adequately charged, or the battery was too hot, or the battery was too cold…. After a long wait it turned red, indicating that the battery was now charging, so probably the problem causing the initial green light was the battery overheating (it seems that WORX batteries are fussy: they cannot be recharged if they are hotter than 45C - no conversion given, but it’s 113F; I’m not clear how I take my battery’s temperature, and it’s not easy to guesstimate and distinguish between, say, 110 and 125F. They also should be stored in ambient temperatures between 65F and 75F - which rules out Salt Lake City throughout the mowing season!). So again it’s the weekend, and I have a trimmer which isn’t performing.
My conclusion is that the mechanical side of the trimmer is pretty good, but the electrical side is a disaster. If I can ever get it working again I’ll consider revising my opinion.
I do not plan to return this, and it will serve its purpose, but the battery really surprised me. Also, the wheels you see in the picture do fall off pretty easily so I'll probably just leave them off.
I am not recommending anyone avoid this, I'm simply stating that when cutting through heavy lawn, the battery life may disappoint you. Thanks for reading.
I fully charged both batteries that came with the Worx & started trimming the next morning. I timed the run times with my watch. The first battery gave me 20 minutes but the second battery died after only 5 minutes. I contacted the seller & I'm waiting for a reply. They have a special website for battery issues - which tells me battery problems are rather common.
The trimmer works quite well for a cordless trimmer. It will sometimes slow down in thick clumps of grass or weeds, but it does an adequate job. The ergonomics are OK - provided you aren't over six feet tall. The shaft length is adjustable but there is not enough length available for taller people. I'm around six feet tall & I found the maximum length barely sufficient. I am also a bit disappointed at the mower feature. I was looking forward to using the trimmer as a mini mower but the wheels are too large in diameter and they sit too high which makes it impossible to mow weeds & grass as closely as I would like. I suppose they would be OK if you prefer taller grass.
The trimmer came with a spool of line already installed & two extra spools but they are very small spools & I don't expect them to last very long. The "Free Extra Spools For Life" feature is quite a joke because the shipping costs more than the spools.
The only complaint I have is that the batteries take several hours to charge.
UPDATE - 2-19-15: A few hours after I e-mailed Worx about the problem with one of the batteries, they responded & will send me a replacement battery & a box to send the defective one back. The Fed-Ex label arrived on 2-24-15 and the replacement battery arrived on 2-26-15. Excellent customer service!
UPDATE - 2-27-15: The replacement battery arrived & after charging, it lasted for 25 minutes of almost-constant use in thick weeds. I also noticed that the string that is used in this trimmer is more durable than the string used in the Greenworks trimmer. It doesn't break as easily. Each time I used the Greenworks trimmer, there would always be several pieces of broken string on the ground. After using the Worx trimmer three times, there is no broken string on the ground.
