No, this model does not come with a battery or charger. This is an electric tool.

WORX trimmers like the GT Revolution (WG170) are designed to trim grass in difficult to reach spaces, edge your lawn, and some are even designed with a mini-mower function, and use the DNA2 Line to cut. The Lawn Edger / Trencher is a little different. This tool uses a 7.5" blade to edge, define garden features, or to dig trenches in your yard to bury wires. The Lawn Edger / Trencher does not trim grass.

The Lawn Edger / Trencher is a 2-in-1 tool designed to give you a professional and more clean cut edge to your lawn or garden features than a typical trimmer/edger can provide. The 7.5" blade can also cut trenches suitable for more pronounced defined edges around garden features or burying line in your yard for invisible fencing.

Yes, the handle pivots for maximum comfort and control.

The Lawn Edger / Trencher weighs about 14 lbs.

Complete instructions and illustrations for changing the blade are included in your owner's manual. Before changing the blades, unplug your Lawn Edger / Trencher and wear safety gloves.

The Lawn Edger / Trencher uses 7.5" heavy-duty steel blades features serrated edges for professional-looking, manicured cut. The blades features two wear indicators that show when it needs to be replaced.

Probably nothing. For the first edging each season, it is best to proceed slowly since the grass will be at its thickest then. Subsequent edging will be easier and faster. If the tool does slow down, back up an inch or two until the blade returns to normal speed and try again. For more information, review your owner's manual.

The Edger / Trencher should not be used in wet or moist ground both for electrical safety and to prevent clogging of the blade chamber.

If the blade chamber becomes clogged after using it during wet conditions, it must be unclogged before you can proceed. Do NOT attempt to unclog the blade chamber by dropping or tapping the tool on the ground. Release the trigger and wait for the blade to come to a stop. Unplug the tool to prevent accidental starts. Before working near the blade, wear gloves. Open the door on the trimmer and remove the clogged materials with a stick.

Your local hardware or garden supply store will be happy to help you select the right cord to meet your needs.
