Comments about 10 Amp 18 in. Straight Shaft Electric String Trimmer / Edger:

I don't understand listing "trailing cord" as a Con on a corded product. I think that is actually a requirement of a corded yard tool. If it was not a desirable feature, buy a gas or cordless unit. A valid Con might be that it is a discontinued product, or that the pre-loaded spools are hard to find.

Pros would be that it is the most powerful electric string trimmer available, or that is takes the typical attachments of the higher powered gas trimmers from 4 or 5 different manufacturers.

    Whacked down an entire large yard of weeds 3 ft higher and taller with no problem in a short morning. Someday it'll be landscaped, but this will keep it down until then.

      Could use a shoulder strap for long period use.
      Multiple string included would be nice. Please respond with information concerning the purchase of more string
      For use on fence rows around the farm yard.

      Comments about 10 Amp 18 in. Straight Shaft Electric String Trimmer / Edger:

      I started with electric trimmers . . . I had about 3 of them. Then I "graduated" to gas. For the first 2 to 3 years, everything was fine, and then problem after problem. I threw it in the trash. I was very skeptical about going back to electric after getting used to the power of a gas trimmer. I read all the reviews online that I could find on this product and felt fairly confident ordering this unit. I'm glad I did. It works just as stated. It has a lot of zip, and does everthing I need. . . . trimming and edging. The ONLY drawback is toting the cord around, but that's what you buy into when you get an electric unit.

        We are interested in the 21142 model of the electric string trimmer. We read that it is the top seller, and just now saw the question regarding the fact that is no longer avalable. Is this true?
        Also, where is it made?

        This Greenworks 21142 was the top-rated corded electric trimmer in Consumer Reports May 2013 issue. Is it really discontinued? Poor marketing!
