Top customer reviews
However beware of the Worx customer service. If for any reason you have a need to invoke a warranty claim on the trimmer, charger, or battery, plan on having at least a free half hour to wait on the phone for a customer service representative. Customer service is only available during a traditional work-hour week. This means if something goes wrong you better be mindful of the anniversary date of your purchase and give calling the Worx customer service your highest priority in your schedule. The email access is unreliable because it seems Worx has only one person responding. If she is out of the office, you will get an automated reply email instructing you to use the phone system.
My lithium battery failed within the time of the one-year warranty. I had trouble reaching a customer service representative during office hours. My email claim resulted in my being redirected to the phone system. Seven days after my warranty expired I finally reached a service representative. Despite the fact of my good-faith effort to get through to customer service the preceding two weeks, I was denied the warranty replacement because I was seven days late. The representatives were empathetically kind about my dilemma but were unable to do anything beyond their willingness to take my order for a new unit. These batteries are expensive.
I submitted a letter of complaint to the Worx corporate office. We will see what they do because I will update this blog entry with a summary of the outcome.
Update --- July 1, 2010
I have a confirmed delivery of my letter to the Worx corporate office in Charlotte, NC, as of June 14, 2010. My letter was respectfully crafted requesting that my warranty claim be honored, given that my good-faith effort for a timely claim was frustrated by the poorly structured Worx customer service system. As of July 1, the Worx customer service failed to make any effort to respond. It seems that, although the Worx product is a decent yard tool, the buyer would need to understand that Worx is not interested in post-market customer satisfaction. Once you have your Worx tool, you are on your own despite the stated warranty because, in effect, Worx structured the customer service to be unresponsive beyond taking new purchase orders.
I noticed that the tool is designed to encourage the customer to be depended upon Worx to return each year to order spent trimmer line and purchase new batteries. Although the line is "free", the shipping and handling cost is pricey. One would do better to save the spool and rewind it with less expensive line from any hardware store. The batteries are expensive to replace every year. This is especially aggravating considering that ordinarily a reasonably manufactured lithium battery could easily last two or more years at a usage rate of one recharge per week. My battery lasted only 15 recharges. Given the battery price, the actual cost of each battery charge is about $4.00 plus the electrical service fee. I do not know if the competition is any better, but buyer beware of Worx customer service.
Update --- May 26, 2012
Well, the negative social media pressure may have affected Worx Corporation.
I was about to trash my Worx trimmer at our neighborhood annual dumpster day event. I made one last Google search of product reviews before tossing the trimmer into my trailer for the final destination. One soul recommended checking out a special Worx web site to replace defective ion batteries free. The URL is [...]Choose_Your_Battery.aspx . The process was quick and the battery exchange was prompt. Worx threw in an extra trimmer line spool as a goodwill gesture.
I will give this replacement, WA3512.1, battery one last chance. I will carefully monitor the performance and update my review. If this product fails the two-year life expectancy, I will run the trimmer over with my car.
So I received my replacement battery back in November and I hadn't updated my review as fast I was thought I would. The new battery has a different color button to pop it off the charger so it's obvious Worx is trying to distinguish the bad batteries from the new ones. The battery came to me free of charge and they even included 2 spools of trimmer line, a nice free addition given they sold me a broken battery to begin with. I've charge the battery several times and have used it and it's working perfectly now. If you have the Worx check your warranty status to see if your battery is part of the recall, you'll be much happier if it is and you get it replaced.
I was finally going to trash my work gt and did one last check of reviews to see if others had issues. Turns out one other owner found out about a battery recall. Sure enough I went to the site, put in my battery info and Worx confirmed my battery was eligible for free replacement. To see if your battery is on the list as well you can go to(...) and in 3 simple steps it tells you if you are eligible or not. I expect my new battery in the next 7-10 days.
Sure would have been nice if Worx got in touch with me since I did register my trimmer instead of me having to find out via another reviewer. Talk about lousy service.
After only 3 months of owning this the battery went bad and will NOT hold a charge. It is flashing on the charger the red light which per the charger means to dispose of the battery... After only 2 months???? What a piece of junk! Worst purchase ever. I pulled out my old black and decker cordless trimmer out which hasn't been used in 3 months and it worked beautifully. I'm dumping this Worx and going back to my old trimmer. I wish I could get my money back but it's past 30 days. What a waste of money.
I have a small yard and used a black and decker cordless charger for years. It was finally time to retire it and after much research I opted to get the WORX GT. The price range was similar to other models I was looking at so I figured why not give it a try.
The worx showed up and I instantly hung up the mounting brackets for the charger and trimmer, it was easy and sturdy. The trimmer itself was quick and easy to assemble. I will say one thing I DON'T like is the amount of line on the spool. I actually ordered replacement spools from WORX website for $6 for 6 spools. Not a bad deal, but it seems like the line itself is short. BUT after using the trimmer it does cut standard weeds and brush and I was surprised the auto feed actually works.
The battery itself lasted about 20 minutes of use and like it says it works just fine at full strength and then it just dies on you. I like that there is no loss of power until it's dead. What I did was trimmed the yard as much as I could then when the battery died I put the battery on the charger and mowed the yard. By the time I was done I was ready to finish up the trimming.
I wasn't sure about the feel of this thing. With the extra large adjustable handle, adjustable head, etc it just seemed like too much. But the more I used it the more I found that there were specific angles I liked it set at that my old trimmer didn't have. And I was actually able to do like they show in the commercial and put the head flat and reach the thing under my deck and get way in there. It really is a neat tool and does the job like it should.
Overall I am impressed and do recommend this trimmer. Don't expect a long battery life, 20 minutes is what I got, I suspect after a few charges it will increase a little, but 20 minutes at full power is what I would want rather then 30 minutes with power loss immediately.
