Fabulous!
Our cleared (about 1 acre) property is within dense woods bordered by bird friendly dense bushes so having a very powerful battery that can trim all perimeter and everything inside with same battery & power to spare is GREAT. The versatility of the cutting head is perfect. We absolutely chose the right tool and would recommend to anyone.

not bad
I like that it takes the same battery as my 40V Greenworks Mower. The string provided is WEAK - buy some from another manufacturer. It is supposed to Advance the string automatically - it does not do this. you have to advance it by hand. DOes not even have a 'bump advance'. this needs to be fixed. but good power and no gasoline or oil to deal with is a plus.

Greenworks Cordless String Trimmer
I have used this for close trimming around buildings and fence rows. Battery life is good for this type tool. Not recommended for professional lawn maintenance operators.

Two defective units in a row
Received two defective units in a row: the line would retract completely into the spool head after twenty seconds or so of use. Tyler Tool's customer service was GREAT. They offered to send a 3rd one, but I gave up and went with a Black and Decker. Turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the B&D was a huge ergonomic step up. The trimmer guard is too big on the Greenworks and the handle is too long. Unfortunately, I now have two different kinds of 40v batteries to deal with. I have a Greenworks mower, blower and hedge trimmer. They are all just ok, but wanted to stay with the brand so I'd be able to use the same batteries and charger for multiple tool.

I just bought the Greenworks 40v 20" lawnmower with GMAX batteries. I have two questions:

1. Why are there two batteries?

2. Can I buy the Greenworks 40v trimmer without a battery and use one of these two batteries in it?

Thanks,

Paul

BEST ANSWER: No, the batteries are not compatible. You need purchase a trimmer that uses the GMAX batteries.
