The LawnMaster cordless trimmer is a budget trimmer that has a 25cm cutting width, comes supplied with a single 24v 2.0Ah battery and standard charger. The shaft is telescopic that allows it to be adjusted to suit the most comfortable posture. The battery can be power shared across the range of LawnMaster 24v cordless tools that include a cordless mower, leaf blower and hedge trimmer.
A relatively unique feature is the two wheels that allow for convenience and control when edging and trimming. It improves stability and will make the job faster as well as more accurate. The features do not end there for this LawnMaster cordless trimmer, so let’s take a look in more detail.
- Stabilising wheels for edge cutting
- Telescopic shaft
- Adjustable plant guard
- Head angle adjustable to 180-degrees via 3 settings
- Pivoting head with 5 different adjustable settings
- Auto line feed
- 24V 2.0Ah battery and charger supplied
- 25cm cutting diameter
Apart from the handy edge trimming wheels mentioned above (see my video review), the head also has the ability to angle in 3 different positions as well as the normal pivoting head positions. This makes the LawnMaster cordless trimmer highly versatile and is ideal for tricky and hard to reach areas. The edge trimming wheel is a real practical feature, as it takes the weight of the trimmer and provides a straight cut whilst trimming the edges of your beds and patio. The wheels can also be removed to reduce the overall weight, whilst using the normal trimming function.
Other handy features include a safety guard for your protection and an adjustable plant guard which will protect plants and other sensitive objects in the garden. You can safely trim around them without causing damage.
The soft grip rotating handle makes it comfortable and well balanced to operate, the design is ergonomic making it easy to manoeuvre.
As mentioned above, the battery can be power shared with other LawnMaster 24v tools. This means that you can build up a collection of tools and use the same batteries and charger for them all.

Top Tip: If you are thinking about purchasing additional LawnMaster cordless tools, you will save money purchasing a “kit”. For example, if you purchased the lawn mower and trimmer together as a kit, you will not only save money, but also receive two larger 4.0Ah batteries with a fast charger.

The LawnMaster cordless trimmer weighs just 2.8 kg and is easy to manoeuvre thanks to the adjustable handle. I did have to remove the edging wheels to reduce the weight during normal trimming use. These edging wheels really did work nicely, taking all of the weight of the trimmer and ensuring a straight and precise cut.
Take a look at my video review to see this in action.
LawnMaster Cordless Trimmer Video Review
This is an 24V cordless grass trimmer supplied with a 2.0Ah battery delivering around 25 minutes run-time. There is the option to purchase a 4.0Ah battery, that will extend the run-time to around 40 minutes.
As you can see from my video, the LawnMaster not only cut the longer grass effectively, but also performed well on the thicker more dense terrain. Just bear in mind that the run-time will be significantly reduced when cutting thicker vegetation.
Another point worth noting, is the 2.0Ah batteries do not have a charge indicator like the larger 4.0Ah batteries. There is a single charge indicator on the charger plug that shows if the battery is fully charged.
Charge Time (2.0Ah battery)
The charge time is approx. 3 hours to 80% and 5 hours to 100% with the standard charger supplied (Part no. HYCH0132400500B).
The charge time is massively reduced to approx. 1 hour with the fast charger (Part No.24LFC12-01).
I would personally pay extra for the fast charger to reduce the charge times. With the standard charger it is a little on the excessive side. Alternatively, you could purchase both the mower and trimmer together, as a kit, and get the fast charger supplied as standard.
The LawnMaster uses nylon string – part number 951744, which is readily available direct from LawnMaster and reasonably priced. The cutting width is 25cm, which is about normal for a trimmer at this price point. Some other brands of trimmer, such as the WORX and Ryobi, do have a slightly larger cutting width of 30cm. Remember, you can always buy the nylon string separately and re-load the spool.
Please refer to the user manual for exact specifications, but any 1.6mm nylon trimmer line should work fine.
The auto line feed system extends the cutting line each time the trimmer is started. It is a convenient system that worked well (see video), however some will prefer the “bump feed” system for greater control.
The edge trimming adjustment is easy to do and works effectively. As you will see from my video, the edging wheels really do work well and are a nice addition to the trimmer. It is a shame that LawnMaster did not include a quicker way to remove the wheels when returning to standard trimming, a large wing nut needs to be unscrewed. You can leave the wheels on when trimming, however this does add to the overall weight of the trimmer.
This is a feature-rich grass trimmer. The retractable plant guard, telescopic shaft and safety guard are handy. The wheels are a great feature for ease of use and precision work. The variable head angles make the LawnMaster cordless trimmer highly versatile, and able to cover all areas of the lawn, even under benches and other obstacles. The build quality in good for a trimmer at this price point and you simply won’t find a better value for money on the UK market.
This LawnMaster cordless trimmer would make a great purchase for anyone looking for a cordless grass trimmer that won’t cost the earth, it gets the job done effectively and is lightweight and simple to use. Just be aware of the minor limitations mentioned above and shown in the pros and cons section.
Take a look at my video review to see it in action and I’m sure you will be as impressed as I am with this cordless trimmer. The edging wheels are a great addition and not just a gimmick that you are paying for and never use. The build quality is surprisingly good for a trimmer that costs less than £80 and it performs exceptionally well.
I would purchase this trimmer together with the 24v lawn mower to get the two 4.0Ah batteries and the fast charger. If the 3 hour (80% charge) and 5 hour (100% charge) charge times are not an issue for you, then great, you will just need to be organised and get the battery charged in good time. You could always purchase the fast charger separately from LawnMaster to benefit from a quick 1 hour charge time. Also, for example, the WORX cordless trimmer takes 3 hours to charge, so these longer charge times are not uncommon.
All-in-all this LawnMaster cordless grass trimmer is great value for money and will NOT disappoint. The support and customer service from LawnMaster is UK based, extremely responsive and helpful, should you need them.
