Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this come with a battery and charger?

    No, this model does not include a battery. This is an electric tool.

  • I’m really tall/short. Can I adapt the Worx 5.5 Amp 15” String Trimmer / Edger to my height?

    Yes! The 5.5 Amp 15” String Trimmer / Edger has a 4-position pivoting head and adjustable auxiliary handle so you don’t have to contort yourself to fit your trimmer. Let your Worx String Trimmer / Edger adapt to fit you.

  • How heavy is the trimmer?

    The trimmer only weighs 6.0 lbs. The ergonomic design ensures weight is evenly distributed between the main and auxiliary handle to make trimming a comfortable, easy-to-manage experience for anyone.

  • Does it come pre-assembled?

    Each trimmer comes with some minor assembly required, which may take up to 5 minutes per tool. A step-by-step instruction manual is included along with easy assembly instructions. Please have a #2 Phillips head screwdriver on hand when assembling your String Trimmer / Edger.

  • How do I adjust the Auxiliary Handle?

    To adjust the auxiliary handle, loosen the knob that attaches it to the trimmer shaft. Slide the auxillary handle to the most ideal, balanced position for your comfort. Adjust the angle of the handle and re-tighten the knob to secure it in place.

  • How do I convert the GT from Trimmer to Edger?

    Converting your trimmer from Trimmer to Edger is quick and easy.

    To change the tool for edging mode, adjust the angle of the cutting handle so the cutting head is inline with the shaft of the trimmer. Grasp the collars on the shaft under the auxillary handle, pull them away from each other and twist. Release, and you’re ready to go!

    To return to trimmer mode, grasp the collars on the shaft under the auxillary handle and pull them apart. Twist counter-clockwise. Release the handle. Adjust the cutting head to the most comfortable position for your height and the job at hand.

  • How do I convert the trimmer to mini mower mode?

    This model does not have a mini-mower mode.

    Mini mower mode is offered on our 20V GT Revolution trimmers.

  • What kind of spools or cutting line does this trimmer use? Can I get the Free Spools for Life offer?

    The Worx 5.5 Amp 15” String Trimmer / Edger uses the Worx WA0007 dual-feed spool which is pre-wound with 16’ ft of our patented DoubleHelix DNA Line2. The Free Spools for Life will not fit this trimmer.

    For your convenience, we also offer a kit including 3 spools and and an additional spool cap cover to make sure you're ready for the whole season.

  • Can other cutting line be used with the Worx Electric String Trimmer / Edger?

    Our Double Helix line is specially designed to work with the Worx String Trimmers / Edgers and give you a quicker and more efficient cut to help maintain a healthy, professionally groomed lawn. DoubleHelix DNA Line 2 is a patented copolymer nylon resin and synthetic material designed with an oval aerodynamic shape known as DoubleHelix DNALINE2 which increases edging life up to 25% compared to normal use conditions. Designed to be softer, stretch and cushion on impact with hard surfaces, DNA2 trimmer line is durable and flexible for longer life.

    If you decide to use traditional line, the 5.5 Amp String Trimmer / Edger can accept standard 0.065” cutting line found at any garden or home center and can be wound around our empty spool cartridges. Refer to your owner’s manual for important details about how to wind the line on the spools.

  • What kind of extension cord should I use?

    The right extension cord will ensure you get the performance you expect and will extend the life of your trimmer. Look for an extension cord rated for Outdoor Use and make sure the gauge of the cord is appropriate for the length you’re using. The WG119 is a 5.5 Amp tool, so check for gauge and length on the grid here, or in your manual. Your local hardware or garden supply store will be happy to help you select the right cord to meet your needs.

  • Can I use the tool without the safety guard? I have experience with other trimmers and will be the only one using it.

    The safety guard is an essential part of the tool. Not only does it keep you safe from any debris from the trimming/edging, it also helps regulate the length of the cutting line. Without the safety guard, your Worx String Trimmer / Edger will not operate properly and you are at risk for injury.

  • Are there any precautions I should follow when using the Worx 5.5 Amp 15” String Trimmer / Edger?

    Carefully review the owner’s manual for all safety information and guidelines for using the Worx String Trimmer / Edger. Follow safety precautions while using any power tools – including wearing safety eyewear, gloves, appropriate shoes & clothing, and keeping hair tied back. See the owner’s manual for complete safety instructions and details.

  • I’ve misplaced my manual. Is there anywhere I can get more information?

    You can download the manual here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worx "Best" From the first Jawsaw I purchased that made my yard clean up in Pennsylvania so easy and efforless. I purchased another one for our Florida home knowing how perfect this tool would be to cut my work time in half. I then found myself the proud owner of the 56 volt turbine 465 blower, another great and powerful addition to help me clean and maintain my homes. With all the power and more to do the job right. An investment in time saving results. My daughter uses a gas powered weed cutter which is heavy and hard to work with on hillsides with such an unflexible design, I decided to order her and her daughter the worx light weight and flexible electric weed cutter knowing that the worx would be more flexible, lighter and better designed than the gas models. I was even more surprised when I received their calls thanking me for buying them such a wonderfull tool. As a senior Iam always looking for ways to make my work easier. What age makes harder WORX tools makes it easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice tool I bought this weeder cause it was so inexpensive on Ebay and i was trying to chop down some weeds, not just basic weeds, like weeds out in a field. This smaller weeder was not up to the task...its for grass, light weeds with thin stalks...stuff like that which im sure its perfect for. So i tried to cut down a tree with a Herring basically, and it didnt work. But that says nothing abuot this product, its a great looking weeder, seems powerful and well built for the price...i just dont have a lawn! Dang it! ;]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design Once upon a time as a child I used electric gardening products and am quite accustomed to maneuvering around the extension chord. With that, I am very impressed with the ease of handling and the power of this machine. Here in Texas some of the weeds are pretty tough, this trimmer has no problem even with .065 string. Took me a few tries to get the hang of the re-string mechanism, but I'm on board with it now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I love this trimmer! It was easy to put together. I tried it out and it cut through the weeds without any problem. I would have liked it to be maybe a pound or two heavier to give it a feel of more weight in your hands, but that isn't necessary. Love the plant guard too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super great featurrers I purchased two of these, one for my son, who absolutely loves it and has cut down his time in the hot sun by half. He couldn't thank me enough. The other one was for me and my landscaper, with the guarded edger no more mishaps around flowerbbeds, and if I want some outside time I can use it myself.!am 5 ft tall and weigh 100 lbs.which means the fact that it's only 6 lbs.,and is adjustable in height makes it a joy to use and the price for all this convenience is invaluableI thank you Worx for another wonderful product you continue to exceed expectations!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I' Sold on WORX! Last month I purchased the Aerocart/ String trimmer Combo they had on sale. I have a small Lot service In Arizona that I run. I have about 20 customers that I service so time is money. These two products cut my on site time from two hours down to about one hour. I smile every time I haul them to the job sites. This month I ordered the Trivac WG500.2 and the thirty gallon cover w/hose. Can't wait for that. I might even get the Switch Drill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value. Well designed I am so happy with mine! I wanted electric and the price was spot on. It's light weight & easy to use. It's simple to adjust on demand with no tools. The string seems to last longer than I expected too. If they has asked me during the design phase I would asked it to have a longer handle, but I would say the same thing for every shovel, rake, broom, mop, and vacuum that I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for back surgery patients but downfall is no downfall is no available placement spools. I have had back surgery twice and this is lightweight but I still have to stop often especially if it is really hot out due to other health problems. I guess I am going to have to figure out how to buy the correct replacement string and restring it myself as I cannot find a replacement spool anywhere. What is up with that one? It is wwhat it is and it's inexpensive

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very reliable It works very well. I use this item much compared to a gas weed Wacker. It has a long battery life as well. I use it on two lawns and don't have to charge the battery. (Both lawns about half an acre)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A unique and amazing Tool This is my second purchase from Worx GT. From purchasing the product online, receiving my item in a timely manner AND placing this product together, i must say i am truly impressed. The performance and comfort of this product is mind blowing. It allowes me to easily trim and manicure my grass without constantly stopping due to manufacturing issues or the spool popping. The cost of this item is worth all the features it offers. To invent a product that can be converted from a grass trimmer to a edger is GENIOUS!!! The pros outway the cons. I have dealt with numerous edgers. The WORX GT CANNOT BE DUPLICATED.
