Pros / The WORX cordless edger has 56 volts of battery power and an adjustable design.

Cons / This is one of the pricier trimmers in our lineup.

 Verdict / The comfortable design makes this electric trimmer easy to use, and it can effectively edge your lawn and get rid of weeds.

The WORX electric grass trimmer operates on 56 volts of battery power, which generates a lot of trimming and edging power. This electric string trimmer adjusts to three different speeds and has a single automatic line feed to cut through weeds and grass. You can also extend the length of the pole to find a comfortable fit for your height. Its 13-inch cutting diameter isn’t the widest in our string trimmer reviews, but this should be more than enough for most yards. If you need an electric weed eater with a wider cutting path, consider the GreenWorks 21142.

This electric weed trimmer has a similar design to a gas trimmer, with the power source on the upper tip of the shaft. While gas trimmers tend to be top-heavy, the battery pack for the WORX trimmer only weighs 1.1 pounds. This trimmer is easy to handle, and you don’t have to breathe in the fumes. It also packs as much power as most gas trimmers with a powerful 56-volt battery.

The edge guard helps you keep track of where the line ends. It serves the dual purpose of protecting plants you don’t want to damage or kill and acting as a guide to precisely edge your lawn. This edger has wheels for even more precise edging.

The battery stays charged for about 45 minutes, which matches the RYOBI P2060A as having the longest battery life of any trimmer in our lineup. There is a battery light located on the device to let you know if you are losing power.

This WORX electric grass trimmer comes with a 20-foot spool of string that is already installed. When you’ve used all the line on the spool, you can replace it without the use of tools. To assemble the WORX electric trimmer, you'll need a screwdriver. However, assembly is easy and only takes a few minutes. The WORX trimmer is covered by a three-year warranty. This is one of the most expensive trimmers in our lineup, but its solid construction and stellar feature package will make it worth the extra cost for the right consumer.
