Does this come with a battery and charger?
Yes, this model comes with 1 battery and 1 charger.
I’m really tall/short. Can I adapt the 40V GT 3.0 String Trimmer / Edger to my height?
Yes! The 40V Worx GT 3.0 is designed to be fully adjustable from the telescoping shaft, multi-position auxiliary handle, to the pivoting trimmer head. Don’t contort yourself to fit your trimmer, let the Worx GT 3.0 adapt to fit you.
How heavy is the trimmer?
The trimmer only weighs 5.9 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.
How long can you trim on each 40 Volt Max Lithium battery charge?
The included 40 Volt Max Lithium battery is designed to provide enough working time per charge to trim up to the average 1/2 acre yard on one charge. Actual results may vary on a variety of factors, including the density of the grass or weeds you’re cutting or the age of the battery pack.
Is the battery going to be powerful enough?
Worx lithium batteries are surprisingly powerful for their compact size. Our 40V Max lithium batteries have double the power of our 20V (1.5Ah) batteries. If we trust our 20V batteries to power our professional cordless drills through concrete and large timbers, you can believe the 40V battery included with your grass trimmer will easily trim and edge your lawn, giving you the professionally manicured look you want.
Is the battery larger than previous models?
The Worx 40V GT 3.0 String trimmer / edger features our highest capacity battery to date and is slightly larger than previous models. The included 40 Volt Max Lithium Battery has double the run time of the 20V (1.5Ah) Worx battery and can hold twice the amount of energy as previous models.
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 40 Volt Max battery?
It takes about 8 hours to fully charge the included battery with the included charger.
Can I use my 40 Volt Max Lithium batteries on my other WORX tools?
While ShareVolt allows you to share batteries between tools within the same voltage family, batteries should only be used with tools of a corresponding voltage. Use your 20V Max Lithium battery with any 20V WORX tool – even the power tools – but save your 40V battery for your 40V tools.
What is CommandFeed and how do I use it?
Worx GT has a history of changing the game when it comes to feeding trimming line, and the 40V GT 3.0 String Trimmer / Edger is no exception. Bumping to advance the line became a thing of the past with auto-feeding line on the first GT, and now, CommandFeed puts the control at your fingertips. If at any time, you need more line for your trimmer, just press the CommandFeed button to release more line. You’ll get the perfect amount of line without stopping your work or getting your hands dirty. It’s that easy.
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.
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.
How do I adjust the Auxiliary Handle?
You can adjust the angle of the auxiliary handle as easily as pushing a button. Where the handle meets the shaft of the GT 3.0, there’s an orange button. Push the button and move the handle to the desired position. Release the button to lock it in place.
How do I adjust the length of the GT?
On the shaft of the trimmer is a black locking collar with an orange clip. Open the orange clip and slide the handle and cutting head apart to desired length. Close the orange clip to secure the trimmer shaft.
How do I adjust the angle of the cutting head?
Place the trimmer head on the floor and put your foot on the cutting head. Lift or lower the handle to your preferred angle while stabilizing the head on the ground. The 40V Worx GT 3.0 String Trimmer / Edger will click through the positions. Once you’ve found the perfect angle for you, you’re ready to get back at it!
How do I convert the GT from Trimmer to Edger?
Converting your trimmer from Trimmer to Edger is quick and easy.
To turn the cutting head for edging mode, look for the black locking collar and orange clip on the shaft of the trimmer. Open the orange clip and twist the shaft/handle. For trimming, twist the handle so it is perpendicular to the cutting head. For edging, twist the handle parallel to the cutting head. When the handle is in the desired position, close the orange clip.
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.
Can other cutting line be used with the 40V GT 3.0 String Trimmer / Edger?
Our Double Helix line is specially designed to work with the Worx 40V GT 3.0 CommandFeed, and give you a quicker and more efficient cut to help maintain a healthy, professionally groomed lawn. Order additional spools any time! With each purchase, you get pre-loaded spools with 10 feet of line.
If you decide to use traditional line, the Worx GT 3.0 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 and keep in mind that with conventional cutting line, CommandFeed may not work as expected.
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 Revolution will not operate properly and you are at risk for injury.
Are there any precautions I should follow when using the Worx 40V GT 3.0 String Trimmer / Edger?
Carefully review the owner’s manual for all safety information and guidelines for using the Worx GT 3.0. 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.
