    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Powerful

    Cons

    • 2 Button Operation
    • Gets Heavy After A While
    • Uses Lots of Line

    Best Uses

    • Straight Edging
    • Trimming Around Rocks
    • Weeds & Tall Grass

    Awesome power comparable to my Ryobi 2 cycle pain in the butt to start gas trimmer. After a while pressing the top button and the bottom button gets uncomfortable to press at the same time (I have arthritis so that is a factor). Would like to have a shoulder strap attachment added for a few bucks more. Overall a great trimmer

      Pros

      • Easy to Handle

      • Trailing Cord

      Best Uses

      • Hedging

      • Weeds & Tall Grass

      I used it for two days to trim around the yard. It is powerful with a wide swath. I had to switch to the smaller trimmer in tight spaces but I could easily reach under areas that previously were difficult to impossible to reach. It never bogged down but had to be careful around small steel stakes. It will grab them fast. I made a shoulder sling to help take some of the weight but the top motor helps keeps the unit well balanced. With all the trimming around trees and plants in my medium size yard, the electric cord takes planning and no need for gas engine maintenance and noise. I got a five year old gas trimmer a number of years ago. I never got it running enough to do the yard. I know that small gas engines run well but become temperamental as they get old.

        It was a snap to assemble and easy to use. The only negative is the cord but I knew that going in and wanted the quiet power and light weight you get from 120V. I purchased this product for the tall thick grass around the cabin and it doesn't disappoint. Make sure to use a good extension cord (14 awg or bigger) especially when it's longer, otherwise it will over tax the motor and the cord will heat up. You can get by with a 16awg for short, lite jobs but keep the length as short as possible. I've been using this product with no complaints and I'm actually very happy with it.

          I researched electric string trimmers thoroughly before opting for the
          Greenworks 21142. So far its performance has been impressive.
          It was easy to assemble, has strong power and is not difficult to re-string.
          Throw in a 4-year warranty and I don't see a competitor that can touch it.
          Thanks to Tyler Tools for great customer service and fast shipping, too.
