Ok, bought the new Worx Revolution GT 2.0 model WG170.9, the complete package with charger, two batteries, etc. I got a Veteran discount and free shipping from Worx. I used it every week to mow and trim my little mobile home lot. It worked great. I was not too thrilled that the battery life only lasted 20 minutes, but that's what they told me was normal.
I went to use it on July 30th and five minutes later nothing, no power, just dead. So being fairly mechanically minded I took the handle apart, checked the fuse and trigger switch relays, all good. Come to find out that after using it every time I would wash the grass off the bottom and clean the whole lower assembly. That's a no-no. Thanks to my cleanliness I basically killed my weedeater. So I called Worx and got a bare unit without batteries, etc. for $39.95 after Veteran discounts.
Bottom line, clean the unit with a parts brush and rag, no water.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
