Frequently Asked Questions

How heavy is the trimmer?

The trimmer only weighs 6.3 lbs, even with the battery installed. As light as this is, the ergonomic design ensures the weight is evenly distributed between the main and auxiliary handle to make trimming a comfortable, easy-to-manage experience for anyone.

I’m really tall/short. Can I adapt the Worx GT 2.0 to my height?

Absolutely! The Worx GT 2.0 is designed to be fully adjustable from the telescoping shaft, multi-position auxiliary handle, and pivoting trimmer head. Don’t contort yourself to fit your trimmer, let the Worx GT 2.0 adapt to fit you.

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 GT 2.0.

How do I convert the GT from Trimmer to Edger? How do I use the Mini-Mower feature?

Converting your trimmer from Trimmer to Edger, or to a Mini-Mower is quick and easy. For your convenience, we’ve included all the steps in a short 2 minute video you can watch online.

How long can you trim on each 20 Volt Max Lithium battery charge?

Each 4.0Ah 20 Volt Max Lithium Battery will provide enough working time per charge to trim up to the average 1/2 acre yard on one charge. It’s like having two batteries in one! Actual results may vary depending on the density of the grass or weeds you’re cutting or the age of the battery pack.

How many batteries come with this trimmer?

The Worx GT 2.0 (WG160.4) comes with two 20V 4.0Ah batteries.

Is the battery larger than previous models?

The Worx GT 2.0 features our highest capacity battery to date. The 20 Volt Max Lithium Battery on the included with the Worx GT 2.0 edger/trimmer has an amp hour rating of 4.0 vs our previous models (2.0 and 1.3 amp hour rating). The amp hour rating measures how much energy can be stored in the battery (energy capacity). The Worx GT 2.0 4.0 Ah battery can hold twice the amount of energy as previous models in the same size due to advanced battery chemistry. This means the WG160.4 model has up to double the run time as the WG160.3 model.

I already have some 20V Worx batteries, will they work in this tool?

Yes! Powershare lets you share batteries and save money. Any 20V Worx battery you already own will be compatible with this tool, and the batteries included in this package will work on the 20V Worx tools you already have.

What’s the difference between the WG160.4 and the previous WG160.3?

The difference between the two model numbers is the battery. The WG160.4 features a 4.0Ah battery where the WG160.3 features a 2.0Ah battery. This means the WG160.4 model has up to double the run time as the WG160.3 model. You also receive a faster charger with the WG160.4 that will completely recharge your battery in about 2 hours compared to the charger included with the WG160.3 model, which takes about 3-5 hours.

What is the horsepower rating of Worx lithium tools?

Battery powered DC motors are not rated for horsepower as output power is only measured with gas or induction AC (corded) motors. Worx lithium powered products were designed with sufficient power to get the job done quickly & easily.

How long does it take to charge the 20 Volt Max battery?

It takes about 2 hours to fully charge the battery with the included charger.

Are lithium batteries interchangeable with the Ni-Cad?

Our lithium tools and Ni-Cd tools are separate platforms and are not interchangeable. Lithium batteries offer our customers maintenance-free technology without the hassle of managing the memory effect inherent in Ni-Cad batteries.

What’s the Free Spools for Life offer? How do I get them?

Each Worx GT 2.0 String Trimmer / Edger / Mini-Mower includes three (3) pre-loaded spools of cutting line to get you started. Extra spools are free of charge as long as you own your trimmer; you just cover the cost of shipping and handling any time you need more! To order, click here.

Are the spools available in stores?

Some stores do offer spools for sale in smaller packs, and while these may be the answer if you run out and need them right away, we recommend taking advantage of the Free Spools for Life program benefits included with the purchase of your trimmer.

Can other cutting line be used with the Worx GT?

Our Double Helix line is specially designed to work with the Worx GT 2.0 for efficient automatic feeding, and a quicker and more efficient cut to help you maintain a healthy, professionally groomed lawn. With the purchase of your Worx GT 2.0, you’re automatically enrolled in our Free Spools for Life program. You get free spools pre-loaded with 10 feet of line anytime you need them; just pay shipping and handling for each package of 6.

If you decide to use traditional line, the Worx lithium powered GT 2.0 can accept standard 0.065” cutting line found at any garden or home center, however the automatic feed function isn’t guaranteed to work properly.

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 GT 2.0 will not operate properly and you are at risk for injury.

Are there any precautions I should follow when using the Worx GT 2.0?

Always wear the proper safety gear and maintain a clean, safe workspace. For more information, please check out the owner’s manual.

What is the guarantee/warranty?

If you decide the Worx GT 2.0 isn’t the right trimmer for you, we offer a 30-day Money Back Guarantee from date of receipt (less shipping and handling). Please call our customer service center at 1-866-354-9679 (Worx) and we’ll be happy to assist. For more information, click here.

We know your tools are indispensable, so we cover each tool with a 2 Year Limited Consumer Warranty. You can extend your warranty to 3 years by registering online within 30 days of purchase. Already have your trimmer? Register now!

Parts subject to normal wear and tear are not covered by the tool’s warranty.

Where can I get replacement parts?

Lose a spool cap cover? Need an extra battery or charger? Replacement parts for the trimmer are available on our website under Accessories, or by contacting our customer service center at 1-866-354-9679 (Worx).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly easy to use. I did get this about a month ago. It was just starting winter time here and things are dying off. So I decided to help them out in a few locations. First time I have used a trimer like this and quickly found out to just let it do the work for me. My trimmer came with 2 batteries and I didn't drain the first one before I finished for the day to charge it. Also, a huge plus to them as the batteries both came at the recommended charge level for storage of a lithium battery. Not full and not dead like many other companies do. Oh, be sure to look at the directions for the guard placement and the screw slot. The Gaurd was really tight getting on, a little convincing was needed.

My yard is so beautiful. I Love my new Worx trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exception Lawn Tool I’ve used gas-powered and electric lawnmowers/edgers most of my life and have always been skeptical about info commercial products. They never seem to live up to their promises but, with the money back guarantee and free shipping, I thought “What the heck! I’ll give it a try and send it back if it doesn’t live up to their promises.” I’ve now had it for a couple of months and wouldn’t trade it for anything. No cords or going running to get gas. This tool is very easy to use, the cutting line is exceptionally strong and the battery life is the best I’ve ever found. Once they are initially charged I’ve found that I can use one batteryplug it in when that runs out, place it on my charge and put in the other without missing a beat. Once that one is discharged, I put it on the charger and inser the charged battery. No downtime! I’d highly recommend this WORX tool to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this tool This is the 2nd Worx trimmer I have purchased. I bought the GT version 1 several years ago and have loved it. I decided to upgrade to GT 2, particularly for the longer battery life. I am more than happy with this new model. I not only love the 4 Ah batteries, but the telescopic shaft is great to adjust to the height of the user. They have improved the adjusting of the angle of trim making it easier to adjust as well. One of the best features of these trimmer, is how easy it is to change the string spool, and they surprisingly last a long time. I use 3 or 4 spools a year, and the free spools for life is a great advantage. I've never seen a trimmer this lightweight and easy to use. Thank you Worx for the continuous improvement of your products. I've loved every product I purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Improvements I purchased one of your first generation trimmer/edger and just purchased your latest new models and I enjoy the improvements you have made . I purchased one of your competitors trimmers and I can tell you that they just don't compare to yours . I will say that the push button feed line as compared to the automatic line was a head scratcher for me because I liked the automatic feed and I don't understand why you would change something that works. I am enjoying your new model and the improvements are awesome!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a champ! This is the second season using this trimmer. With the many flower beads and fence and edging walk and drive, it has done well. It usually only requires one charge and done. As light weight as ti is, it is also rugged. Going fro a trimmer to an edger, is snap. For light duty for city yards it is all you need.

Asked by: Olebill

The upgraded GT trimer with the 40volt battery does it make the trimmer more powerful or just run longer? I don't want to have a bigger battery that I can't use with other worx tools just to get more time. I will just use two batteries.

Does the GT trimmer vibrate you when you are using it?

Asked by: Bethdancer
It does what I call a tiny bit. Nothing like a regular weedeater. After an injury I got the GT. The vibration was not a visual vibration as such. But I could only use it for one battery's worth of time. Then my hand would swell. Now I can use it for 2 batteries worth of time. I used to weedeat 6-8 hours a day, 6 days a week. This GT has been a life-saver for me. The GT wasn't made for the work I used to do, but now I don't feel useless anymore.

You actually have to order the "Free Spools For Life 6-Pack".  There is no cost for the spools, however, I do believe you may have to pay a small shipping fee if I remember right.

How come the string feeds out to about 18" and sometime the string breaks off leaving half of the string in the spool and seems to be fused together.

Asked by: Sonny 1947
I have weedeated for years and all weedeaters have that problem at some time. How tight and in-line that you wind the string will make a difference. If you are getting 18 inches when the maximum you want is 12, then the string is too loosely wound. If the string is fused together it is done by friction and heat. Winding the string evenly all across the bottom, then all across the next level, then all across the next level, etc, without crossing over any (like making an x) -- which my husband was good at, and I have more trouble doing -- you are less likely to get that 'fused' twine. But it is a part of using a weedeater. Good luck. Patience. Practice.
