Greenworks Trimmer Features
First, let’s talk about the design. There are trimmers with straight and curved shafts.
Shaft refers to the transmission of power from the motor to the lines (lines do the cutting job). Now, a trimmer with a curved shaft is lighter, therefore, it’s a whole lot easier to control it.
On the other hand, a trimmer with a straight shaft is a great choice for tall users and for those who don’t have any difficulty to control the unit, due to weak arms.
The Greenworks weed eater that we’re reviewing here has a straight shaft, thus you will easily reach beneath bushes, and around trees.
Another thing worth mentioning is that the Greenworks weed eater is extremely well-built.
It’s sturdy and reliable, therefore will keep your yard in perfect condition for years to come.
The price is reasonable, so this unit is a smart investment and will certainly pay off in the long run.
Also, the Greenworks trimmer has a sturdy handle, so you shouldn’t have any trouble with maneuvering, whether it be trimming or edging.
Even though the Greenworks string trimmer is not as light as other models on the market, it’s a good choice for people who have strong arms.
Lastly, this model is a cordless weed eater. Thanks to this, you won’t have to worry about how long the cord is, because there is none.
Moreover, the Greenworks trimmer is great for edging and trimming hard-to-reach areas, as there won’t be limitations and you will be able to move freely.
Now, let’s see how the Greenworks weed wacker performs. If you need a trustworthy cordless string trimmer to keep unwanted grass off your sidewalks, driveway and cut grass in your small yard, the Greenworks trimmer is one of the best trimmers on the market.
However, if you need a trimmer that can handle thick weed and tall grass, this model may not be a good choice, simply because the battery will empty too quickly, and you will have to charge it too many times, in order to get the job done. Needless to say, this won’t be efficient at all.
The Greenworks trimmer excels when it comes to edging and reaching beneath bushes.
Thanks to an amazing pivoting head that can be rotated in three positions, you’ll easily maneuver the trimmer when edging your lawn in points where it meets a sidewalk, or when trimming around the trees.
So, if you have to do a lot of edging, you’ll definitely appreciate the spinning head.
Since the Greenworks string trimmer is a single-line, it won’t cut as much grass as two-lines models.
However, it still performs great when it comes to cutting moderate-length grass.
Another handy feature that we love about this string trimmer is an Auto-feed head. While some models feature bump-feed that will release line only when you bump the head of the trimmer on the ground, some models come with a fixed-line head that uses short lengths of line in order to prevent line getting tangled.
Why waste precious time on releasing line, when you actually don’t have to? The G-MAX 40V comes with an auto-feed head.
This means that it will automatically release the line when needed, so you won’t have to worry about that.
Easy To Use
You shouldn’t have any trouble controlling and using the Greenworks trimmer since the unit is well balanced.
Plus, the model comes with an instant electric start, which makes using it a whole lot easier. Just press the button and the unit will turn on, without wearing your arms out.
Less vibration offers ease-of-use and better control over the weed eater.
When it comes to the battery life, the Greenworks trimmer comes with 40V 2Ah Battery, but you can also use 4AH battery.
The average run time is around 30 minutes per charge, which is pretty solid run time.
Charging time for a 2AH battery is 60 minutes, and for a 4AH battery, it is 2 hours.
Greenworks also makes it on the best corded electric lawn mower top 5 list as well.
