Why is it Different?
First, the WORX GT is battery powered. The Lithium Ion battery pack gives you a good 15-20 minute continuous run time under load on a full charge. You can also purchase a second battery doubling your run time. An optional quick charger charges the battery pack in 30 minutes letting you swap without stopping.
Second, it is battery powered. Which means it is electric. Which means it starts at the push of a button. And it stops at the release of a button. And it will do that as many times as you want to squeeze the trigger. No yanking or cranking involved.
Third, it is battery powered. Which means it is cordless. Which means you are free to roam the great outdoors trimming weeds wherever they may grow.
Fourth, the WORX GT is light. And I mean light. It weighs a little over 5 lbs. I can hold it with my pinkie finger. That makes it accessible for smaller women, the aging and those pesky kids with nothing to do on a Saturday morning accept watch cartoons.
Fifth, it is flexible and adjustable. You can set the handle position and the trimming head at multiple angles allowing you to save you back and have good posture no matter what you are trimming.
Sixth, the WORX GT doubles as an edger. With a quick, tool-less twist of the trimming head it rolls on a couple of wheels and edges your sidewalk or driveway.
Seventh, it has sufficient power to do the task. The WORX GT isn't a gimmick. It's a real tool.
Does it Deliver?
It delivers on all of its promises. Every ergonomic advantage it claims it possesses. The electric motor has the speed to slice through your grass and weeds and the battery has the power to trim your entire house.
When you combine the light weight with the adjustable handle and cutting head it makes trimming/edging, dare I say it, easy.

Overall the WORX GT Cordless Trimmer/Edger is a great tool. In addition to the features already mentioned it has an auto feed line and it folds up to half its size for storage. What's not to like. Besides the whole prospect of having to trim the lawn in the first place.
