Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Perfect for small jobs
This trimmer has enough power to do pretty much every small domestic job you might come across. Additionally, this trimmer has a short yet precise string perfectly suited for small-sized jobs.
Pro Extremely light
This string trimmer is, in fact, one of the lightest trimmers available on the market. It weighs only 5.2 pounds, meaning that it's easy to carry around by pretty much anyone.
Pro Can be used as an edger
If you rotate this unit's shaft, you can convert this trimmer into an edger, so you can finish your garden work by straightening the grass at the sidewalk. While the edging function works well, it does take some time to become used to it, as no wheel supports the trimmer while you are doing the job.
Con May need an extension cord
Keep in mind that this unit is a corded, so you may need to provide a long enough extension cord to cover places you need to trim.
Con Unusual string release mechanism may be difficult to get used to
While most of the trimmers release the string either based on the resistance or releasing it when you bump the head against the ground, GreenWorks have decided to do it differently. The trimmer releases the string when you release the power trigger. For some, it may be hard to get used to this system.
Con Not meant for tall people
If you are taller than 6', it can be tiresome for you to use this trimmer for long periods of time, due to its size.
