Lightweight, Easy to Use
This is a heavy-duty piece of machinery but at only 14 lbs you can easily maneuver it along rounded and tricky to edge stretches.
Professionally Landscaped Look
Regular edgers do the job, sure, but this 2-in-1 Edger/Trencher gets deeper, with a 7.5” serrated blade spinning at 4700 revs/min, for deeper, more defined lines along your lawn.
How is this 2-in-1 Lawn Edger/Trencher different than other Edger/Trimmers?
Well, this isn’t a trimmer. Edger/Trimmers use string line and are meant to trim in hard to reach places the mower missed, and edge your lawn. This Edger/Trencher uses a spinning, serrated blade for deeper edging, and to lay down wires.
What else can it be used for?
When you need to lay down invisible fencing, or boundary wires like our Landroid robotic mower uses. But mostly this tool is made to make deep, clean, professional-looking lines that define sidewalks, driveways, and landscaping features.
Are blades included?
Yes. We threw in one heavy-duty steel 7.5” blade to get you started. Replacement blades are always available. And each blade has wear indicators that show when it needs to be replaced.
How do I change the depth settings?
There’s a knob. Right on the tool. Just push it down once, then again to pick the depth you want, like a transmission shifter in a car.
Can this edge in wet ground?
Nope. This is an electrical tool, so don’t use it in wet conditions for that reason. Plus, wet ground will clog the blade chamber.

Followup: Finished the job the following day, and as expected, the other side of the walk went quicker. Once this opposite edge was cut back to where it needed to be, and the sod clumps were removed, I did another pass on both sides of the walk with the edger. I wanted to make nice, straight, clean edges. This final edging went very quickly and gave me the finished look I wanted.
Now, having done both sides of the 80' walk twice (4X80'=320') I can comment on the question of the blade loosening. No problem whatsoever. To test for this, I used a large adjustable crescent wrench to hold the spindle from turning, and a 15 mm socket to tighten the nut. After the first 80' pass I did the first check for tightness. I was able to tighten the nut about 1/8 turn only. It was pretty tight, and must have come from the factory that way. Then, after the job was complete (three more passes) I checked it again. This time I was unable to tighten it any more. No loosening at all had occurred. So, I can only conclude that others who have had the loosening issue either didn't confirm the tightness of the blade to begin with, or they were cutting through tough ground--perhaps hitting stones along the way.
Bottom line: Other than the problem mentioned regarding the unit struggling to make the initial cuts through overgrown, thick grass, the edger does a very good job. This is especially true if you keep up with your edging and don't let the grass encroach over your pavement so that you have to cut a lot of it back. I'm thinking that if I do the job every year at the beginning of the season the machine will do fine. On the other hand, if you let it go two or three years like I did you can plan to do quite a bit of work to bring things back to where you want them to be. Even then, with patience, the Worx WG896 will make the job a lot more manageable.
TIP: When your done with an edge, make sure you let the blade stop spinning before you let go of the handle on the sidewalk. I chipped my sidewalk in many places because I kept forgetting that the blade was spinning.
And it probably works fine if you have an already tidy edge, but creating that first edge is a real chore. It will not go through built up dirt or thicker grass like tall fescue. You are better off using a sharp spade shovel that first time, then just keeping up every few weeks with this little cupcake.
