WORX says it developed the Command Feed line advance system that advances trimmer line instantly. With this system, WORX says the user can electronically control when to feed more line by a pushbutton activator above the trigger.

This trimmer/edger has a gas-like variable speed control that the company says allows users to maximize run time by varying the trimmer’s speed based on the task. WORX adds that the trimmer also uses a snap-in spool with 20 ft. of professional .080 diameter spiral line.

WORX says this trimmer’s shaft ratchets from 0 to 90 degrees, which allows users to trim in hard to reach areas. The company says this trimmer/edger is a powerful grass trimmer and a precision edger, and its pushbutton twist-and-edge feature easily converts the trimmer into a wheeled, walk-behind edger. The wheels can be stored on the trimmer’s shaft or removed entirely.

WORX says this 8.6 lb. trimmer/edger has an adjustable front-assist handle with a smooth grip for comfort and control. The company adds that the trimmer also has a 13 in. cutting swath and an adjustable metal spacer guard to help keep the trimmer’s line from cutting into sensitive areas.

The company says the grass trimmer operates at a no-load speed of 7500 rpm, and WORX says it incorporated a quick-change, snap-in spool system that includes two free 1 in. x 20 ft. spools.

The company also recently introduced the 40V 24 in. hedge trimmer that the company says features a 180-degree rotating cutting head that they say clean cuts hedge branches up to Âľ in. thick.

At 9.3 lbs., WORX says this machine is ideal for trimming a variety of species, including boxwood, yews and shrubs for shaping tasks or topiary sculpting.

WORX says this Euro-style trimmer provides a soft grip D-shaped rear handle and fully wrapped overmold front assist handle. The machine also features a high impact, transparent hand guard that the company says provides protection and helps deflect debris.

WORX says the 24 in. blades minimize vibration and help reduce operator fatigue, and the fully hardened, factory-sharpened blades operate at 2200 strokes-per-minute (spm). The company adds that this blade allows the operator to manage 30 in. hedges that are within arm’s reach.

The company says the hedge trimmer also has a two-step trigger to prevent accidental start-ups. WORX says it is powered by two 20V Max Power Share 2.0 Ah lithium batteries, each with an LED power gauge.

WORX says it also broadened its bare tool Power Share program to include their new 20V shrubber/shear. The company says this cordless, two-way trimmer can convert in seconds from a 4 in. shear to an 8 in. shrubber, and they add that it has an optional wheeled pole extension.

WORX says the 20V shrubber/shear has a 4 in. grass trimming blade, and WORX says by incorporating the optional wheeled extension pole, jobs won’t require the user to stoop and bend as frequently, as the extension pole adjusts 27 in. to 44 in.

At 1100 no-load rpm, WORX says this tool has a cutting capacity of 5.16 in, and at 2.0 lbs. with the battery, it is less than half the weight of a conventional trimmer.

This tool comes with a 20V 1.5 Ah battery and five hour charger, and is available on the company’s website and through other online retailers like Amazon.
