About Worx GT 2.0

If you recently watched a commercial for the Worx GT 2.0, you may have been fascinated by its claim to the most versatile trimmer and edger in the world, and are wondering if this is really the case. In other words, at just 6 pounds and with the ability to trim, edge, and mow, does this self-proclaimed “powerful” cordless trimmer truly give you professional results every time, or is it just hype?

In order to find out if the Worx GT 2.0 is worth your hard-earned money, we trimmed the facts, and here’s what we learned.

Worx GT 2.0 Details

When compared to other cordless trimmers, the Worx GT 2.0 claims to differentiate itself from the competition by providing powerful 3-in-1 usability, which includes the ability to quickly change between trimmer, wheeled precision edger, and mini-mower modes. On top of this, the Worx GT 2.0 is claimed to weigh in at just 6 pounds, while still being able to provide professional results every time.

If there are multiple users in your household, the Worx GT 2.0 claims to be height and posture adjustable, and its 100% automatic single-line feed means that you’ll have it when you need it. In addition, the trimmer claims to have a 2” larger cutting diameter than the competition, with 2-position guide wheels, a 90 degree tilt head, and a spacer guard as standard.

Also, when compared to previous models, the Worx GT 2.0 features a high-density 20V MaxLithium battery, which is 40% lighter than Ni-Cd batteries, while still giving you twice the power. In fact, Worx claims that these are the most powerful and longest lasting batteries ever offered.

Worx GT 2.0 Pricing & Refund Policy

If purchased directly through Worx, the GT 2.0 is priced at three payments of $39.95 or one single payment of $119.85. With your order you’ll also receive a second “free” 20V MaxLithium battery, as well as free spools for life.

However, if you’d prefer to purchase your Worx GT 2.0 trimmer from a local retailer, it’s also available at Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, Aubuchon Hardware, and numerous others.

Worx provides a 30-day money back guarantee for all direct GT 2.0 purchases, less S&H and restocking fees (if any). In order to initiate the refund process, make sure that you have all original packing and materials and then call 866-354-WORX.

What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About the Worx GT 2.0?

The Worx GT 2.0 appears to have an evenly mixed online reputation, which makes the average 3.6-star rating displayed on the Worx website seem legit. We should note here that it’s refreshing to see negative reviews posted on the manufacturer’s website, which indicates that the company isn’t afraid of less-than-stellar feedback. With this said, the most common compliments appear to be that the Worx 2.0 GT is lightweight, quiet, and easy to use.

On the other hand, the three most common complaints we encountered cited:

Lack of Power: Most reviewers stated that the Worx GT 2.0 will work effectively on shin-high grass or lower, but the trimmer’s lack of power means that anything taller than this might require several passes in order to adequately cut. However, anything thicker than grass (e.g. plant stems, shrubs, etc.) seems to be beyond the Worx GT 2.0’s capabilities. In short, if you’re expecting the Worx GT 2.0 to work as well as a traditional gas trimmer, you’re likely to be disappointed.

Battery Life: While Worx claims that their 20V MaxLithium battery will last 30-45 minutes between charges, we found numerous customers claiming that they were lucky to get 20 minutes per charge. And when it’s ultimately time to do so, you’ll have to wait 3-4 hours for a full recharge, which is why it’s good that a second battery is included with your purchase.

On top of this, many customers complained that these batteries were of poor quality, and often stopped holding a charge after about a year, and in some instances only lasted a couple months. To add insult to injury, replacement batteries are expensive, which greatly increases the trimmer’s overall operating costs.

Poor Quality Parts: Many, many customers also complained that several of Worx GT 2.0’s plastic parts were cheaply made and break quickly, including the cap that keeps the spool on, wheels, and the trim guard. In addition, the line appears to have a tendency to stop feeding after a relatively short period of time.

What’s the Bottom Line About the Worx GT 2.0?

Now that you’re more familiar with the Worx GT 2.0 and its online reputation, what’s the bottom line: Is this cordless trimmer worth your hard-earned money? In short, it all depends on your expectations.

This is because it appears that approximately 50% of the consumers who’ve purchased the Worx GT 2.0 are, at the very least, underwhelmed by its power and battery life. As such, if you trim your grass often and have a fairly small yard, the Worx GT 2.0 might be right up your alley.

On the other hand, if you have a medium to large yard, go a long time in between trimmings, or frequently use your trimmer to cut down brush and other thick debris, you may want to think twice about purchasing the Worx GT 2.0. In such an instance, you’ll likely find gas trimmers at the same (or lower) price point, but which will likely provide much better performance and require only basic maintenance.

    Worx GT 2

    • Peabody, MA,
    • Jul 11, 2016

    I was amazed at how beefy this is. Beat it up for almost an hour, never failed, battery still had charge for more! Have not had it long, maybe a month, but I am totally blown away. Best weed wacker I ever had.

    Toro I had is a piece of junk. With this I never stopped to fix stringer. Toro, every time I hit a twig or rock or my fence. Worx ate up twigs, branches, never stopped. I would not write this if not true. Thanks.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Not too bad.

    • Beecher, IL,
    • Feb 5, 2016

    I've had mine for about 4 years now. Not as much power as a gas trimmer but less problems with care, upkeep and starting up. It's also better than the Black & Decker I used to have. I've only had to charge it once every year. The battery I got works great, no defects. I live in the city so this works for me. Don't need too much power, cordless electric is just right. I also have the Worx lawn mower. As for the trimmer, It does take some getting used to. I have two favorite settings. One for up and down trimming for along the sidewalk or curb. Then I move the wheels onto the back section, set it on a sideways angle so I can use it on its wheels, sort of like a mini trimmer along side of bushes or trimming along side of the garage. They make everything look easy on their infomercials. It does take some getting used to, but after a few seasons I'm getting the hang of it. Like I said, it's better than my old trimmer. If you want more power, go for a gas trimmer.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Very poor quality. Batteries don't last. Customer service puts you in hold for hours.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    It "Worx" for me.

    I've had a Worx Weed-eater for over a year. I got it free using air-miles. I'm mostly very happy with it. I love that it has wheels. I have a bad back so it makes it easy to push it along where I want to trim the grass around rocks/trees and fence posts.

    I would like the charge to last longer, however, as I do tire easily, it is not a biggie. My only real complaint is getting the battery to release from the machine and/or charger.

    I do not have a lot of hand strength. I do follow the directions regarding the use of the battery such as draining it right down, and keeping it warm over the winter. I am not totally physically capable of packing around a big gas whacker, nor do I like the limitations of a corded whacker.

    The Worx gives me the freedom to move around the two or so acres around my home (I live on 70 acres) plus as an added bonus, I can go up on the road side and cut off the dandelions before they go to seed. As such, less dandelions in my lawn. The Worx also does not handle heavier weeds with stick like stems. They tend to wind around the spool. Oh well, you can't have it all.

    However, if you are elderly, or physically limited and living in an urban center, I would highly recommend getting a Worx weed whacker. It's not too bad in a rural setting either. I do love what I can do and where I can go with my Worx on wheels.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
