Worx GT 2.0 Reviews
Worx GT 2.0 is an updated version of the original Worx GT. It has been available since 2013 and is advertised as a 3-in-1 product that can trim, edge, and mow. The key to the product’s versatility is a set of wheels which helps to support weight, allowing for more precise cutting. Combine that with a head that tilts 90 degrees, and you are presented with a tool that can meet the needs of many projects.
Consumer satisfaction is generally high, although a small number of negative reviews do exist. On Amazon, the GT 2.0 has garnered a solid 4 star rating from nearly 200 reviewers. At Lowe’s, it also ranks around 4 stars.
Those who report satisfaction with the product state that it works well and offers a lightweight and versatile solution to edging and trimming.
The mini-mower may be useful for small patches of grass, but it certainly can’t replace a standard mower for larger areas.
Even some of the product’s most ardent supporters concede that the battery and charging time could use improvement, even though the 2.0 model is said to offer double the battery capacity of the original GT. Yielding only about 20-40 minutes of use, the battery is perhaps the weakest feature of the GT 2.0. The current offer on the Worx website includes a second battery, which could alleviate some of the complaints about the product’s power.
Perhaps the greatest complaint is not that of the battery, but of Worx customer service, which repeatedly appears in angry tirades by customers who did not feel satisfied by reps at the company. Long phone waits and unresponsive reps are reported in high numbers by those who sought help from Worx customer service. Because you can find the GT 2.0 in stores, purchasing locally will circumvent potential customer service problems reported by other users.
Worx GT 2.0 is a 3-in-1 trimmer, edger, and mini-mower. It sports mostly positive reviews for its lightweight design and versatility. A minority of customers have expressed dissatisfaction with the battery life and durability, while others have noted that customer service is sub-par.
As with any product, consumer experiences and subjectivity will vary. We feel that in the majority of cases, consumers will be satisfied with the Worx GT 2.0 for light to moderate lawn needs. More demanding trimming and mowing tasks may be beyond the capacity of the GT 2.0’s battery.
You may want to shop locally for your Worx GT 2.0, which would facilitate the return process if necessary.
