    This review is from: Greenworks 21132 40V Cordless Lithium-Ion 12-in Straight Shaft Electric String Trimmer / Edger (Tool Only)

    I bought this trimmer (tool only) at the same time as I bought the 19″ mower (25292) as they use the same battery. I was able to buy the trimmer as tool only because the mower came with 2 batteries.

    The trimmer works well for its design but could work better with a few changes.

    The handle and shaft are very adjustable so you should be able to set it just about to any setting to make it comfortable for you to operate. I find it easy to turn on/off with the thumb and index finger. The trimmer cuts through just about anything but there are some design flaws/changes that cause me only to give it 3 stars.

    I have yet to get the auto feed to work. That said, its not that difficult to turn it over and manually release more line. The length of the string before it gets cut by the blade attached to the guard is a little less that I would like. Longer feed = bigger cutting area. The guard is (as mentioned by other reviews) at bit too large and it does make it difficult to get into tight spots. That said, a smaller guard wouldn’t protect against it kicking up things when turned 90 degrees using it as an edger. If you don’t use it in edger mode you don’t need the wide guard. Lastly it would be nice if you could change the head to put on spools with thicker string or a head with fixed cord.

    So I’m thinking of doing the following to address this. I’m considering using a Dremel to cut the guard back. This will make it smaller and get rid of the blade that cuts the string to length. Since I can’t get auto feed to work that’s not a big deal and I’ll use safety mask when edging. I’m also going to try string that is a little thicker to see if I can get it to work. No promises but if I do this I’ll repost how it worked out.

    I liked this weed eater because the power is low and the string is small. I can use it in shorts and barefoot and although it’s slower than the others (gas powered),the job has become much more enjoyable.
    The guard broke off after 2 hrs. and I had to glue it,which won’t last forever. I hope Greenworks designs a couple more guard mounting bosses for this otherwise fine product.

    I already own the Greenworks battery powered mower, and this trimmer uses the same lithium ion battery to handle the edging and trimming on my small yard.

    Best hedge trimmer I have ever had, November 5, 2012

    This review is from: GreenWorks 22102 2.7 Amp 18″ Corded Hedger (Lawn & Patio)

    I bought this to replace a Black & Decker that died. The reason that I like this one better is that the blade is longer and thinner making the trimmer lighter and easier to handle. The longer blade lets me reach places that I could not reach before without a ladder.

    Feels well built, blades were sharp and trimmer did well when used on various types of vegetation. Motor handled a variety of vegetation thicknesses without bogging down.
