Top Customer Reviews
I am biased coming from a gas trimmer that has attachments for blower and edger.
1) It starts right away and just keeps working till you turn it off. Power is less than my gas trimmer but worth it to just have an instant on.
2) The shaft is short. It adjusts but from super small to short. I am 6'1" and wish it extended some more. I read the other review of the taller guy who said it was fine... perhaps I will get use to it... but 1st impression.. it is short!
3) I could not figure out the auto line advancement. I ended up manually advancing it with the button on the bottom of the spool. I have read releasing the button and starting again advances the line.. but it occasionally seems to not work and I manually push the button on the bottom.
4) No extra line. I am going to go ahead and order more line right now.... not a new spool since that is $16 for a back of 3 (Greenworks 29242 3-Pack Replacement Trimmer Line Spool for 21052 and 21212). These spools are out of stock anyways! FYI: The line has to be 0.65in diameter. I will order this for $7: Weed Eater 952701594 0.065-Inch-by-200-Foot Bulk Round String Trimmer Line
FYI - The spool is 2 lines... not the single line spool for different models.
5) Edging: Rotating the unit to edge with the guard extended is odd. I need to be on the opposite side of where I normally edge. I need to be on the grass facing the curb. That is the only way to handle it to cut along the concrete edge... the guide is not designed to rest on the concrete either.. to run along... you have to drag the guard into a channel you create with the line.
6) The Cord: The balance between instant power vs freedom is a fine line. having a cord gives POWER! No batteries to deal with. A cord can limit you quickly though having fun cutting. I ended up getting a 100ft cord with a new winder: Green Leaf WW-1 Wonder Winder Hand Crank Extension Cord Winder which is $19 and is a great thing to have if you use any wired lawn equipment.
Overall... it does the job. I would love to get a battery version but hear horrible things about them not lasting long enough to do the whole yard. This is an inexpensive trimmer and is great for small yards. I have not dealt with replacing line yet, but will come back later and let you all know.
The plastic bottom does get scrapped a lot. I hope this thing lasts.
UPDATE: May 22, 2011 - Down to 3 stars.
Well... I bought some replacement string [...] and I ATTEMPTED to restring the empty spool BUT... no matter how well I wind it... when I run it the 1st time... it runs out long and wraps around the spool getting caught. I have to cut it free and restring again. I have yet to have this thing work without the original spool.
The company website says that these come with an extra spool.. which it does not. There is no way to order replacement spool that is pre-wound since it is out of stock. The worst is.. I JUST tossed the box yesterday thinking I would not run into any issues.. so I cannot return it! That sucks.
I have tried re-stringing it 4x so far and each time it gets caught. I am wasting line here. Be warned.
UPDATE June 2, 2011: Still Three stars...
I ended up getting the line manually strung.. FINALLY. (No replacement spools to speak of out there). The instructions seemed wrong so I had to disregard the instructions completely and go with the picture on the web and common sense. I miss the freedom of a gas trimmer... but having the Green Leaf WW-1 Wonder Winder and a long cord has been excellent balance of both. If I had to do it over I would get the bigger head... and longer shaft (I think).
These are dual sting and the automatic advance will only work properly when you are using both strings. This brings us to the replacement spools sold by various companies which DON’T even fit the trimmer. So forget them and get a 200-300 spool of .065 round (I say round – I have not tried the edged string) string and re-wind the original spool which came with the trimmer. There is an arrow on top of the spool which will let you know in which direction to wind the spool. BOTH strings are wound in the SAME direction. To get the string started in the spool there is a slot in the spool and slip the string in the same direction of the direction you will wind. This locks the string in place and allows you to wind.
How to get the trimmer to advance once you have the stings loaded. AUTOMATICALLY – understand that there is no sensor in the trimmer telling it to let out more string. The string is advanced EACH TIME YOU LET OFF THE POWER and the spool is allowed to come to a complete stop. Just before it comes to a stop, you will hear a slight click from the spool. This means that it has reset the advance and when you give it power again, the strings will advance. You can stop and start the trimmer as many times as you like until the stings are where you want them. MANUALLY – you can advance the strings manually by turning the trimmer on its handle and looking at the spool for a little black rectangle button on the spool. Jiggle that and play with the string and the string will advance.
This trimmer is 4 amp which means there might be brush or thick weeds which you cannot get through without the motor straining. You can work around this. Go to one single string. BUT be aware the automatic advance will not work properly with only one string. So you will have to manually advance the string. This will reduce the drag on the strings and allow you to cut thru thicker grass and weeds. The cut will not be a neat and you might have to make two passes BUT the motor will probably not bog down.
I replaced a 15 inch Weedeater with the 13 inch Greenworks trimmer. I got about 60 uses out of the Weedeather before it ceased to function. It was too large and too heavy and bulky for my yard where I have a lot of fences and landscaping rocks to trim around. The fact that the trimmer has TWO trim lines is also very important because the string lasts longer and the two lines cut about twice as fast.
The Weedeater's string advance system never worked well - had to turn the unit over and pull out the string by hand. BUT THE GREENWORKS TRIMMER LINE ADVANCE ACTUALLY WORKS!!! Just release the ON trigger for two seconds and it advances automatically (you will hear it click). I wear the the strings down really fast trimming around rocks, so I have to click it off and on several times to get the string out to full length, but that takes about 5 seconds. I think the unit will not use (waste) as much string as the Weedeater. The 4 amp motor has sufficient power for fast trimming.
The unit was double boxed for shipping. It has an adjustable length handle, which is still a bit short for someone who is 6'4", but it works well. It was very easy to assemble - about 10 minutes. I would estimate it cut my trim time from 1.5 hours to about 45 minutes.
It would be great if Amazon also carried the refill spools of line.
