Pros for the Worx Cordless Grass Trimmer:
- One of the best benefits here is the fact that there are 2 batteries included in this pack so you can have one battery charging and work with the other at the same time which ensures longer trimming sessions.
- While it is not the cheapest around, it is still competitively priced against other similar brands and the added cost of the 2nd battery doesn’t inflate the overall price as much as expected.
- There is the option of paying for this using a credit card plan with Argos instead of paying for it all up front if immediate cashflow is an issue. You can also get a further replacement care cover for less than £25 for more protection which is optional
- The wheel for the edging works well to give a nice tidy finish around the borders and the pivot head can be rotated to 90 degrees which is great for those hard to reach places.
- The auto line spool feed works well, no problems experienced whatsoever and more line can be generated by easily pushing on a button which their innovative Command feed line system
- For more comfort, the shaft of this grass trimmer can be adjusted to suits various different heights and it also provides a nice sift grip handle which helps to reduce hand fatigue.
- You get a great warranty of 2 years which can be extended to 3 years by simply registering it online within 28 days of purchase.
Cons for the Worx Cordless Grass Trimmer:
- The battery here is not always interchangeable with all the Worx cordless powered tools. Only on 20V powered tools. The information on the line feed can also be a little confusing depending where you look
- There is no power indicator on the batteries so there tends to be guesswork on the level of power that would be remaining. You won’t know how much battery is left until it is fully depleted and turns off by itself
- The charging of the battery is very slow here and will take 3 hours on average and in some cases more. Many other models and battery chargers can get the batteries recharged in a lot less time than this
- The runtime on the battery can vary quite a bit. If you have wet heavy grass to work on, then you can find that the battery will deplete a lot quicker and in some cases, will last less than 20 minutes for heavy duty work.
- Additional spools can be more difficult than expected to source.

Section 4: Conclusion Plus Feedback
Is this Worx Grass Trimmer worth the money? From our experience anyway, yes - we definitely believe that this grass trimmer is worth the money. The battery doesn’t have the indicator which is annoying but apart from that it did a really good job trimming the edges and borders and the battery lasts for between 25 and 30 minutes depending on how hard you are working the tool and the battery. The fact that the warranty can be extended to a third year adds further protection on your investment and having the 2 batteries included makes sure that you can always have a fully charged battery in place as back up if the trimming work will take longer than 30 minutes. One thing they could have done though is to include a spare spool line as it is more difficult than expected to source and get your hands on the required spools.
