If this is anything like the Worx's corded trimmer (seems to be) then stay clear.

I picked up one of these "bargains" from Argos the other year. Would have been better off with a pair of scissors.

For strimming grass the supplied strimmer cable was as robust as silly string and kept getting tangled in the mechanism, which had more rewinds that a Basic Instinct video. Even replacement cable didn't seem to do the trick.

Just hope any one who takes a chance on this doesn't suffer the problems I had, it seemed once you had finally finished it was time to cut again.
I have the lithium battery version. Over the past 10 years I've had a mains Flymo ( rubbish ) mains Bosch ( ridiculously heavy and cord release cartridge never worked ) Ryobi cordless which worked well unitil battery wouldn't charge ( only had it 2 years and replacement battery was more than the original trimmer !) Last Summer I bought the Worx 18V lithium because it was the lightest model available and the guy I know at B&Q had excellent feedback from his customers. Its been the best by a country mile, I only hope the battery lasts more than 2 seasons !!!
I've got this strimmer... its brilliant, the best strimmer i've ever had.
Also you get free spools for life, just pay for P&P.

Reserved one. Looks good going by the reviews.
Thanks to OP.

Do you ever use ebay for batteries? Not everyone thinks of it. You can sometimes get pretty good deals on specialist replacements there.
nice find bro
Cheers ordered the extra spools.
