What Customers Are Saying:
A dream! That’s right, a BATTERY powered weed trimmer was literally called a dream, hard to believe. Let’s examine why:
- Works great (beautifully was the word used)
- Battery had plenty of juice left after 45 minutes of use – highly unusual for a battery trimmer
- Automatic trimmer line advancer works great
Those are some of the main features highlighted by customers. Not all of them are raving as is always the case, here are some of the “common” issues highlighted (we use ” ” around common because the issues are really isolated): seems to be some trimmers have their start switch give out and some people have had bad/faulty batteries. In all cases we noticed that Greenworks customer service was able to eventually resolve the issue for each customer but there was some time involved.
Reviews overall are pretty good and the unit seems to be solid – in the rare case you get a bad one you will eventually get it replaced or fixed but it may take some time.
The GreenWorks 21602 uses a really powerful battery. The 6.0-Ah Lithium-ion battery that is included runs up to 45 minutes which is far longer than most cordless electric string trimmers. The batteries last a long time too but should you have any issues the battery is backed by a 1-year warranty, the trimmer itself comes with the GreenWorks 4 year warranty.
It weights 7.5 pounds which is rather light, though a little heavier than most cordless trimmers. The extra weight can be attributed to the battery, there is the option to purchase a 2.6-Ah Lithium Ion battery which is lightweight – just keep in mind this is an extra cost and doesn’t have the same long run time. Some other convenience features of the GreenWorks 21602: quickly converts to edger using a rotate button, uses an automatic line advancement system that actually works, shaft telescopes to switch between heights.
Something pretty cool about this trimmer is that thanks to its battery-powered motor it creates absolutely zero carbon emissions. You also won’t have to deal with mixing gas and oil and the mess those engines can create. Additionally it uses an Energy Star rated battery charger that reduces energy use by 35% – also saving you some money. So not only is it easy to use but it’s good for the environment too.
