Flexible but not powerful enough

,
August 31, 2014
By Nordicstrack
from West Hartford
"I found the shaft trimmer and edger to be very flexible but not powerful enough to quickly cut through the bigger debris. The front handle is movable but not sufficiently so to truly balance the machine in operation so your arm get pretty tired by the end. The adjustments to different positions are seamless and that's a real plus. It's surprisingly good at edging though that wasn't how I was expecting to use the machine when I bought it. I recommend this trimmer but would get a more power one if I had the choice."

Terrible Customer Service

,
July 24, 2014
By hookshot35
from Tennessee
"Was initially pleased with my Greenworks 21282 trimmer. I did often have line advance issues and I would have to recharge halfway through trimming my 1/3 acre lawn. Those were things I could live with, since it was much more reliable than a gas trimmer without a huge power drop-off.
I started having problems after about 4 months of use. The battery was lasting less than 10 minutes before I started having pulsating issues. Called Greenworks. They told me I had to take it to an authorized repair center. I drove 35 minutes to return it and was told they would be in touch. After 2 weeks I received a call that I had a bad motor and that Greenworks would send me another complete trimmer. After waiting another week I called back and was told to contact Greenworks since they were sending the replacement unit. The service rep at Greenworks tried to get rid of me by telling me to call back the small engine shop that told me this. After telling her I was instructed to call Greenworks, she said she would check on it. After a 20 minute hold she came back and said it hasn't even been shipped yet. She could not give me a tracking number or any confirmation number. Said I should receive it in 5 to 10 business days. I have now been without a trimmer for nearly 4 weeks during peak season. Never again will I buy another Greenworks product."

Happy with Purchase

,
July 17, 2014
By jd547FL
from Weirsdale, FL
"After reading reviews of other battery powered string trimmers (usually poor) as compared to reviews of this unit. This seemed to be the only unit that would charge quickly and hold a charge all through the trimming I need to do in my yard. This unit does as advertised - the battery charges quickly 45 minutes or less. I don't have a real large yard, but I have never run out of power in the battery. The supplied string spool tangled a couple of times and would not feed, but it was easy to remove and correct. I am happy with this purchase"

works well for small yards

By GLE2
from Charlotte, NC
"I have had it several months and I am still satisfied with the product. It makes it through my 3/4 acre lot on one full charge, but sometimes it doesn't make it all the way through if I have a lot of trimming to do. It was also easy to reload string. Favorite part (besides no longer messing with the gas mixture) is the automatic line feed so I am not slamming and bumping it on the ground every few feet like my old ones."

Great Weedeater

,
October 18, 2012
By greenbc
from West Virginia
"I was a little skeptical at first but after using it a couple of times, I'm hooked. It's very easy to use, lightweight, and won't having you smelling like gas fumes after you're done. Did I mention powerful? Yes, it is a great electric weedeater. It only takes a little time to charge and usually lasts me about 45 min each time. I love the Li-Ion battery, it keeps full power until it dies."

Great for the price and convenience!

"The Greenworks trimmer replaced a very heavy gas-powered trimmer. I miss the power of the gas trimmer, but DO NOT miss the fumes, mixing fuel, cranking difficulty, or the weight! The trimmer was completely adequate for trimming grass.. I only tried it on a few tall weeds, and it was slow...needed more power. Battery time was over 35 minutes for me.
I loved the one-button adjustment for the angle or to change to an edger. I have no complaints!
