Einhell Power X-Change 18V Cordless Strimmer Review


Rating: 4.4 out of 5 (from 10,406 reviews)

The the Einhell Power X-Change 18V Cordless Strimmer is designed to offer complete garden versatility with its telescopic handlebar and adjustable additional handle featuring a soft grip.

The strimmer's motor head rotates +/- 90 degrees for precise edge cutting and offers a 5-fold inclination for accessing difficult areas such as house corners, under hedges, and around bushes. Equipped with 20 plastic knives stored conveniently in the additional handle's storage compartment, it includes a sturdy flower guard to safeguard sensitive plants during operation.

What users think:

The Einhell Power X-Change 18V Cordless Strimmer has received mixed reviews from users. It is praised for easy assembly and solid performance, particularly benefiting from compatibility with Einhell Drill batteries. However, concerns exist regarding the durability of its plastic blades, which wear out quickly when encountering stones or pebbles. Despite this drawback, the strimmer is appreciated for its lightweight design, ease of use, and satisfactory battery life, making it suitable for typical grass cutting tasks in debris-free areas.

Direct quotes from owners:

Excellent bit of kit, easy assembly, great performance. On thing is the blades aren't up to much but do the job. Well worth the money and convenience of being able to use my Einhell Drill batteries.


Was nearly put off by the reviews mentioning the strimming blades coming off during use. Can only think that they hadn't been properly located on the spindle, as I havnt had one come off yet (although they are a bit stiff to pull on fully). Felt a bit underpowered at first, maybe because it was so quiet. I tested it out on a patch of knee-high overgrown field grass, and it did the job in the same time as my Makita mains powered strimmer. Battery life very good as well.


This product is lightweight and quite easy to use. Cuts great if for areas that are free on stones or anything hard. The little plastic blades provided is what lets this product down. Wears rather quickly, if comes in contact with stones or pebbles you find yourself going through the 20 blades at a fast rate. I’m not sure why blades were favoured above string for cutting.

Price: £47.99
