Greenworks G40LT Cordless Strimmer Review

Rating: 4.4 out of 5 (from 673 reviews)

The Greenworks G40LT Cordless Strimmer is a grass trimmer that boasts powerful performance, lightweight construction, and a well-balanced design for optimal usability. With an adjustable front handle, users can easily set the trimmer to a comfortable working height, while the 2 split shaft makes it easy to store when not in use. This feature makes it an ideal tool for trimming long grass in areas where a lawnmower cannot reach.

One of the standout features of the G40LT is the ease with which users can change the line. Rather than having to fiddle with threading, simply twist off the head and push the new line straight through. Additionally, the auto line feed pushes out a length of new line every time the trimmer is started, ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted trimming experience.

For those who are concerned about damaging delicate plants or trees while trimming, the G40LT has a built-in plant guard and the speed can be adjusted to allow for more gentle strimming. The guard also allows users to protect the bark at the base of trees by placing it against the trunk while cutting.

This trimmer can be used with any Greenworks 40V 2Ah or 4Ah battery, making it a versatile tool for those who already own Greenworks tools and want to save space and reduce waste. It's important to note that the G40LT is only compatible with Greenworks 40V batteries and cannot be used with 24V or any other voltage batteries.

As part of its commitment to quality and customer service, Greenworks offers a 3-year guarantee on the G40LT Cordless Strimmer. As a world leader in electric tools and battery technology, Greenworks has a global reputation for smart design and high performance, making the G40LT a reliable and durable addition to any gardening toolkit.

What users think:

The Greenworks G40LT Cordless Strimmer is a lightweight and easy to use tool that has been well-received by many users for its efficiency and effectiveness in light work. Owners appreciate its portability and maneuverability, making it easy to handle for extended periods. Additionally, it's powerful enough to take care of common gardening tasks such as trimming grass edges and small weeds.

However, some users have expressed disappointment with the tool's performance when compared to other strimmers on the market. There have been some concerns about whether a battery is included (it i sold both with and without), causing some annoyance among customers. Moreover, the G40LT is not suitable for heavier workloads, so it may not be the best choice for larger gardens or tougher vegetation.

Overall, the Greenworks G40LT Cordless Strimmer has earned a reputation as a handy and reliable tool for light gardening work. Its lightweight design and easy-to-use features make it a popular choice among users who value portability and convenience. However, potential buyers should be aware of its limitations and suitability for their specific gardening needs.

Direct quotes from owners:

This is the second one I’ve bought as a gift for my son. I've had one for 18 months and used it weekly since purchase, it cuts through anything! We have a meadow and the cordless strimmer makes cutting the edges easy and you don’t need to recharge the battery giving me at least an hour on one charge. It's a great machine!!!

Very powerful as a strimmer. Real shame there's no shoulder strap because without one it's just as tiring to use if not more than my big petrol strimmer.

Much longer than my previous strimmers but good enough. I'm 6 feet tall. Once you have the batteries I guess you are hooked into that make. Trying to find the model number isnt easy which is odd as the replacement spools all say which model number they are for. Obviously just me but I've had better strimmers.

Price: £89.95
