GreenWorks 21362 String Trimmer Review

In the past, if you wanted a quality string trimmer with lots of power and trimming ability you had to buy a gas powered one, but times are changing, and the GreenWorks 21362 DigiPro G-MAX 40V 14-Inch Cordless String Trimmer, is a battery operated trimmer that could be a game changer. GreenWorks aim is to provide environmentally friendly yard and garden tools that offer the same levels of power and performance of gas powered lawn tools, but without the fumes and hassle of refueling.


The GreenWorks 21362 DigiPro G-MAX 40V 14-Inch Cordless String Trimmer is able to provide you with superior trimming ability without the problems associated with noisy, smelly and oily gas engines.

This trimmer comes with GreenWorks patented G-MAX system that helps to deliver a much longer operating life, as well as added efficiency, whilst keeping noise levels to a minimum, but retaining the power and performance that you would expect from a gas powered trimmer.

Operating the GreenWorks 21362 is a breeze thanks to its 14 inch cutting path and accompanying speed trigger that allows you to vary the cutting speed and power, allowing you to quickly take care of the toughest weeds.

Pros and Cons

The Pros

Despite not having a gas powered engine, the GreenWorks 21362 is still able to pack a powerful punch, and is just as good at trimming as a gas powered alternative. It can also have a number of standard style attachments added to it, which include an edger, brush and cultivator tools.

The Cons

It comes with a bump-feed head, which means having to bang the device on the ground when the cord needs replenishing. This is unfortunate as there is the better alternative of automatic constant line feed, which can be found on similar models of trimmer from other manufacturers. It is also a lot heavier than other cordless battery operated trimming tools, and it can feel more like a gas powered device rather than a battery operated one.


Despite not having an automatic line feed, and being a bit heavier in weight than some of its counterparts, this is one trimmer that has a lot going for it, and if you are looking to do your yard work whilst protecting the environment from gas emissions, this could be the trimmer that is right for you.
