I had it plugged into a professionally wired in double waterproof RCD socket (securely attached three foot up the wall) that was only fitted a year previous. That makes it even more worrying that it hadn't activated the RCD. I always check the RCD before use by testing the cut off switch. As a firemans son and ex health and safety officer for the council, I am very aware of the dangers and always take all precautions nessesary. Goggles, gloves, footwear.... You name it I do it.


The manual will almost certainly recommend the use of an RCD but nobody reads it or follow these recommendations so what can you do.


Partially agree. Part I don't agree that how the hell consumer will know that? Safety is priority for sure, but if manufacturer is not stressing on correct/safe use then it's pure luck is someone will tell you. Consumers are just users and often refer to manual to learn how to use one or another item. (embarrassed)


You should be using it with an RCD socket. It'll have some safety built into the device but ultimately if you aren't using electric garden tools with an RCD then you're doing it wrong.


I ended up buying a roll and kept one aside and cut to that length had no issues just kept with same diameter but the holder does take different ones

WORX WG163E 18V 20V MAX Cordless Grass Trimmer with 2 Batteries + 3 year guarantee £85 (Click & Collect) @ Argos

Free Click & Collect, decent with 2 batteries and good reviews. Batteries on their own are around £30-£35. Free 2 year guarantee, 3 years if extended online at worx. Com. 1 y… Read more

I've had this model for over a year and if you have a large garden or no outside power sockets its amazing. No messing with extension leads or the noise and hassle of a petrol. Each battery last 20-30 minutes and it's really light so really easy to use.


Used mine today. I'd definitely recommend using safety glasses or goggles with this (embarrassed)


I have this and other Worx tools. All are excellent. This strimmer is great and will do all the edges easily with one battery. I've got 4 2a/h batteries so no worries there.


Called them and registered on phone, no problem there... (Ph: 0345 202 9679)


Same here, website takes details but nothing happened after I pressed submit button! No page to say it is registered or no emails from them either!

Don’t buy any. They are Chinese rubbish that will break in no time, and you’ll have serious bother trying to get it fixed


You must have been reading the DIY handbook to have that level of knowhow! (lol)


Yes, and if you need that extra reach, you can tie your chainsaw to a broom handle. (y) :D


I'd just buy a chainsaw if that's what you need. This looks like it has a pole mounted chainsaw, designed mainly for light overhead cutting.


A quick online search suggests that there are no spare parts available for these - break something (anything) and its scrap.

Came today so tried it out , tried it with the wheel but to high so took it off was brilliant the auto feed worked very well was well impressed , came with a spare spool but i bought 5 as well in the same deal the only negative it gets a bit heavy with long term use . apart from that well pleased


Same brand?
