Q: Hi Joe, I'm in the market for a great corded string trimmer. I see you recommend the GreenWorks 15" electric. I've owned many, including top named brands and find that none of them have a string dispenser that's worth a damn! They all get hung up and tangled inside requiring mega time wasted on untangling and/or restringing the double string wind up spool, not to mention the string wasted! Does this trimmer handle the line any better? Looking for an honest positive answer before buying. Thanks Joe. Vance, San Benito, TX
by Vance from Texas on December 15, 2013

A: Vance,

You said what many are thinking! The biggest pain in the neck is having a spool that does not deliver line well.

Most of the corded models out there trim with a auto-feed head. This means, line is magically released to the appropriate length when needed via a tiny motor and sensors. If you ask me, that is asking way to much from a trimmer head.

I have way more success in a bump-feed system like you would find in this Greenworks model:

Greenworks - 21142

Less for me to have to repair or maintain is always going to be a better tool in my book. Plus you have the option to add attachments from the accessories tab to turn this trimmer into exactly what you need for not a whole heck of a lot of dough.

James,
I apologize for the issues you are experiencing with your string trimmer. Have you contacted Greenworks to determine if this is a defective trimmer head on your unit? If this is the case, they would be able to send you out a replacement trimmer head. I would recommend reaching out to them as this is not a common issue people are experiencing. Greenworks can be reached at 888-909-6757.

Once again I apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate you reaching out to us.

James,
We're sorry to hear about the issues you're experiencing with the line advancement.

Please be advised that automatic feed works when the start trigger is depressed, 1/4" of an inch of line will dispel. You can check if this feature works by depressing the start trigger on and off about 10 times and see if the line length changes. Then check the button at the bottom on the side of the spool housing, push the button in, if the button springs back that's normal, however if the button does not spring back there could be an issue. If following these steps do not resolve your issue please contact us at info@greenworkstools.com so that we may assist you better.

A Great Machine!
This machine has far more power than I expected, far more than any similar tool of my experience. As a trimmer it makes quick work of even the tallest, thickest grass and weeds. As an edger it really excels it cuts a cleaner line and does so more easily and efficiently than any actual "edger" I've ever used. There is nothing flimsy about this unit, it's sturdily built and I expect it to last for years. Feeding additional line is easy as well- no more bumping. Assembly was... more

Electric Trimmer
For an electric trimmer, it is ok. The only problem I have had is, the string that was sent with it, keeps breaking!! I assume it is the fault of the string and not the trimmer.

Worked For 1 Year And 1 Week
I purchased the product last year through Amazon. Last year it worked perfectly. This year it worked well for one weekend. Now it will start on the first try, but when letting the lever go to move to another area of the yard it will not fire back up. I checked the electrical outlet and the extension cord and both worked. The troubleshooting area of the manual did not address this problem.

Gave It Away, Hate It
Good luck using this contraption. The string head is useless, didn't advance, and within a few seconds, I'd have to undo the head and find a way to get some string out manually. I was willing to buy a better head, but none are available.

I gave its way. Useless.
Pros: Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Difficult To Use

Powerful
Did not expect this much power. Edges easily. Just watch out for debris getting past the guard. Caught two objects is the face today. Left a little blood on the lawn. Noted the price today much lower than I paid.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Features, Reliable
Cons: Expensive

Powerful And Easy To Use
I generally do not enjoy weed eating, but my wife insists that I do some limited trimming. I purchased the electric trimmer because I have had bad experiences with gas powered trimmers in the past. So far so good!
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Quiet, Easy To Store

The Perfect Trimmer/edger For The Average Homeowner.
This trimmer replaced a cordless model. I was tired of spending $50 or more every couple of years on a new battery, so I decided to try an electric trimmer. I'm really happy with this trimmer/edger. It's very powerful for its light weight.
