What makes a cordless weed eater one of the best battery-powered weed eaters on the market? It needs to be powerful, with solid run time, easy to use, and with some extra functionality thrown in so you’ll have the sharpest looking lawn on the block (I mean, that’s what it’s really all about, right?). Battery weed eaters are better than their fussy electric and high-maintenance gas-powered cousins (we’ll tell you why battery-powered grass trimmers are better below). Cordless string trimmers tick so many boxes on the lawncare list that you’ll see why so many homeowners are such big fans. So, let’s trim the fat and get right to it. Here are the best battery-powered weed eaters from Worx.
Join the Revolution of Innovative Weed Eaters!
Worx named this battery weed eater the GT Revolution. Get it? The sting head makes a lot of fast revolutions and it’ll revolutionize your yard. Ah, puns. Dads love Worx. But so do Moms and teenagers and Grandmas and Grandpas because Worx makes ergonomically-friendly tools that are lightweight but still packed with power, so pretty much anyone from high-school age all the way to retirement age can pick one up and help out with the yardwork. The GT Revolution is one of the best battery-powered weed eaters because it’s a 3-in-1: With just the press of a button it rotates from a String Trimmer, to an In-Line Wheeled Edger, to a nimble Mini-Mower. You save money because you don’t have to buy a separate cordless weed eater and a separate edger. And the mini-mower is perfect for those small patches of grass that the mower missed or couldn’t get to because of uneven terrain, or are too big to use a battery-powered grass trimmer to mow down effectively. This GT is a full foot longer than the previous generation GT, giving it 7 handle positions to accommodate users of all sizes. And this cordless string trimmer comes with a big ol’ 4.0Ah battery (if you choose the battery-included model, it’s also available as just the tool without the battery for even more savings if you already have some Power ShareTM batteries laying around). Typical 20V batteries, from both Worx and other popular brands, are the 2.0Ah variety. So you can do the math and know that a 4.0Ah battery extends the runtime and significantly improves the performance of the tools that use them. The GT Revolution is one of the best battery-powered weed eaters because of its combination of ease-of-use and 3-in-1 functionality. And you get FREE SPOOLS FOR LIFE with the GT! C’mon, that’s almost worth it right there.
2 x 20V = 40V of Trimming Power & Performance
For larger lawns, like a ½ acre, 40V battery weed eaters are the way to go. With two 20V Power Share batteries driving this cordless string trimmer, you’ll get more done in less time. This trimmer is attachment-capable and transforms into a hedge trimmer, brush cutter, pole saw and lawn edger with the simple use of compatible attachments (sold separately). And with its greater 15” cutting diameter, you can trim larger patches of grass with fewer passes. As part of the new Worx Nitro family, this cordless weed eater features a brushless motor providing 50% longer runtime, 25% more power and 10% longer lifespan than traditional cordless grass trimmers with brushed motors. The attachment versatility and variable speed control with ECO-mode makes this one of the best battery-powered weed eaters because you have options for how you want to attack multiple tasks while maintaining ultimate control and maximum runtime. Dial-up the speed for thicker patches, then turn it back down to conserve battery. And seamlessly add one of the versatile attachments to easily trim hedges, cut brush, edge the lawn, or turn it into a pole sale to cut hard-to-reach branches.
A Simple Yet Powerful Cordless Grass Trimmer
This cordless weed eater does one thing and it does it well: it trims your lawn. The dual-exit cutting head provides a more thorough trim than single-exit heads. Two 20V batteries extend its runtime to make it a battery-powered grass trimmer that gets more done than others on the market. And the onboard battery-charge indicators let you know how much juice is left in each battery. The best battery-powered weed eaters allow you to enjoy the freedom of not being tethered to an outlet and a long chain of extension cords like you would be with an electric trimmer (aren’t cordless tools great?). And battery weed eaters free you from the pump! Gas-powered string trimmers are expensive to fuel and maintain, they’re messy, fill up the whole block with fumes, and are louder than the best battery-powered weed eaters (does your neighborhood have a noise restriction, or is it thinking about one?). Cordless string trimmers are often the perfect solution for modern homeowners, and those that just like less hassle from their yardwork.
