How is the Lawn Edger / Trencher different from other WORX Trimmer / Edger tools like the WG170?
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.
What is this tool used for?
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.

My Edger / Trencher slows down when I'm using it for the first time each season. What am I doing wrong?
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.
It's been raining a lot. Is it easier to edge the wet ground?
The Edger / Trencher should not be used in wet or moist ground both for electrical safety and to prevent clogging of the blade chamber.
What do I do if my Edger / Trencher clogs?
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.
