Traditional lawn mowers and weed eaters have always been powered by gasoline, and thus aren’t all that great for the environment. In an effort to be a bit more environmentally friendly, manufacturers started making more electric trimmers and mowers. But many of these fell short in offering the power and freedom of movement that people prefer to have when doing yard work. With the introduction of the Greenworks 21602 String Trimmer, though, the game has changed. This is an environmentally friendly trimmer that still comes through in delivering plenty of grass trimming power.
You don’t have to be a hardcore environmentalist to enjoy the “green” benefits of the Greenworks 21602 trimmer. Sure, it’s nice to be able to take care of yard work, without your trimmer filling up the surrounding air with nasty gas and oil emissions, but that’s not the only reason to enjoy this eco-friendly trimmer. No gas, means no more dealing with messy fueling and expensive trips to the local gas station. If you have an outlet free to charge the battery, you’re all set to go with the Greenworks 21602.
Some corded electric string trimmers are notorious for being undersized and anything but efficient. Again, the Greenworks 21602 bucks the trend in providing high-end efficiency. With its large, 12 inch cutting swath, this trimmer takes down more weeds and overgrown grass than those small trimmers are capable of. In other words, you get to spend less time trimming the weeds and more time enjoying your great looking lawn.
