The Worx electric grass trimmer uses speed and a dual-line auto feed to cut through weeds and grass in your lawn. You can extend the length of the pole to help you find a comfortable fit. Moreover, it has three positions in which you can tilt the head of this electric string trimmer so you can be sure to get the best cutting job.

At one of the higher speeds, the Worx electric grass trimmer spins at 8,800 rotations per minute (RPMs). This, combined with the 4.5 amperes (amps) of power, makes it a great lawn tool for light grass and weed trimming. This electric string trimmer doesn't come with a safety switch because the manufacturer says you can simply unplug the machine to avoid it starting before you're ready.

At 7 pounds, this trimmer is heavier than many of the other electric string trimmers we reviewed. It has a 12-inch cutting swath and two trimming lines. The line feeds automatically. This electric weed trimmer uses standard 0.065-inch string.

To protect your flowers, preserve string and assist you in getting a precise cut, you can use the edge guard, which helps you keep track of where the line ends.

In addition to these other features, the Worx electric grass trimmer comes with a spool of string that is already installed.

You'll need a screwdriver to assemble the Worx electric trimmer. Assembly is easy and only takes a few minutes. Once you've been using your electric string trimmer and you've used all the string on the spool, you can replace the spool without using any tools. The cover that sits over the spool simply lifts off when you press the tabs on the sides.
