WORX WG157E Review

There is no doubt that at only 1.9 kg this is one of the lighter and easier to manage cordless grass trimmers.

Charge time

You are looking at a charge time of roughly 2 hours. It is important to note that this model comes without a battery and charger. The batteries are interchangeable with other 20V Worx products which is a great convenience.

String type

This WORX WG157E trimmer uses a 3m threaded wire spool. The auto-release will give you the right length when you start the trimmer up. This saves time and hassle and delivers an optimal cut.

It uses a DNA2 Double Helix spool. This is an advanced design that cuts extremely well with less flutter and noise. The cleaner cut also means a healthier grass blade for a happier looking lawn. This design and the patented blended polymer is also more durable than the typical round string.

WORX WG157E DeckFeed type

The single line auto-feed system with an automatic release is convenient and user-friendly. It will keep you going longer and make adjustments quick and easy.

Edge trimming

It changes from a standard trimmer to an effective edger with ease. One simply has to rotate the head by 180-degrees. This is really easy and needs no tools. It literally takes a few seconds. The edge trimming is effective and the light weight of the trimmer helps maintain accuracy and precision without strain.
