Frequently Asked Questions
How heavy is the trimmer?
The trimmer is over 20% lighter than the average gas trimmer. It weighs 8.8 lbs and the ergonomic design ensures the weight is evenly distributed to make trimming a comfortable, easy-to-manage experience for anyone.
I’m really tall/short. Can I adapt the 56V Cordless String Trimmer & Wheeled Edger to my height?
The 56V Cordless String Trimmer & Wheeled Edger is ergonomically designed to be well-balanced for any user. The auxiliary handle may be moved along the shaft and angled for comfort, while the pivoting trimmer head helps customize the fit.
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 trimmer.
How do I convert from trimming to edging?
It takes 3 simple steps to convert your trimmer to an edger:
1. Install the wheels onto the trimmer head.
2. Pivot the trimmer head so that it is parallel with the shaft (0 degree position)
3. Press the orange button under the Command Feed button and twist.
It's that simple!
How long can you trim on each 56V MaxLithium battery charge?
Each 56V MaxLithium Battery (not included) is designed to handle the average 1 acre yard on one charge. Variable speed throttle control helps you use the right amount of power for the job at hand and get the most out of each charge. Actual results may vary based on the function being used (trimming vs. edging), the density of the grass or weeds you’re cutting and the use of the variable speed function.
Is the battery larger than previous models?
The 56V Cordless String Trimmer & Wheeled Edger features our highest capacity battery (not included) to date - giving you gas-like power and performance with the convenience of cordless operation. The 56V battery is powerful enough to run a lawnmower – so imagine how easily it will handle your toughest trimming and edging needs!
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 56V lithium battery?
It takes 90 minutes to fully charge the battery.
Are lithium batteries interchangeable with Ni-Cd batteries?
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-Cd batteries.
What’s the Free Spools for Life offer? How do I get them?

Can I use the tool without the safety guard?
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 string trimmer will not operate properly and you are at risk for injury.
