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.

5.5 Amp Electric 15" String Trimmer & Edger is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 150.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Weedwacking and Edging now This trimmer is wonderful. Never thought I would enjoy weed whacking until now. I would highly recommend this. I can get through such high and tough weeds and brush. This thing will cut through anything and it does it so fast that it cuts my work time in half. The string does not jam or break even when I hit something really hard. It feeds by itself. I tried the battery one but my yard is so big that it was not enough to do the whole yard. This think is just wonderful. I hit one of my rose bushes by accident and it had some thick branches and it was gone... it's okay I have plenty more and I should have had the metal guard out and this would not have happened but this just tells you that this trimmer has some serious power to it. It is not heavy but when doing a large yard anything feels heavy after a while so I bought a shoulder strap and now it is fine. The edger didn't do as well as I would like but I used the trimmer sideways and it put a wonderful edge everywhere, I even did the driveway and wanted to do the neighbors but I stopped myself :) Small yard, big yard, neighbors yard :) this trimmer will handle anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had one of these for 15 years, best corded units Had one of these for 15 years, best corded units I have ever owned. I have had 5 different units before this type and none of the others would stand up to what I had to cut. In 15 years if this one dies, I hope I can find another just like it.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use I bought this 2 years ago and it has been great. I like the automatic line feed the best.
Date published: 2018-07-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use This Trimmer is easy to use and works like a horse even though it's electric, I can adjust it to my size, and move the handle where I need it, I can use a long electric cord with it if needed and it works the same as a smaller cord, no loss of power. I am very pleased as it also takes on harder weeds that we get around our 2 very large yards from the woods around us. It also is easier to change the string spool also, no fighting to get it open. Just Love It, Thank You for making a great product (for us older folks)

My trimmer keeps stalling out and my strings feeds out too much....help!

Asked by: BrenBren

My string is not auto feeding and there is plenty of string left on the spool. Any ideas?

Asked by: Gamecock Larry
I was having this problem too. In my case, below the spool, there is a plastic piece that contains a spring inside, a small part of this plastic piece sticks out the trimmer and can be pushed. This is what essentially releases and locks the spool in the inside. My plastic piece had a crack, as a result the spring couldn't do its job. I contacted customer service and that is not a part that can be replaced. Worx is sending me another one since it was under warranty.

Can I rewind the spool myself? What grade/size is the string?

Asked by: Mauisuzi
I have been using other string and winding my own for 2 years. I had a lot of exta string lying around. Not a problem but you have to release the string using the release button and pull out needed string. More of a hassle but I do not mind.
