electric string trimmer – Earthwise 2017

The Earthwise ST00015 is a dual-line electric weed eater with plenty of power and speed to effectively trim grass and rid your yard of weeds. This is a corded string trimmer with a wide, 15-inch cutting path and a 6.25-amp motor. This is more than enough area and power for most lawns. It’s one of the only trimmers we reviewed that has a safety switch to ensure that it only starts when you’re ready.


You will have to maneuver around the extension cord and have enough of it to cover your yard. If you???re used to a cordless design, it may take some getting used to. The cord-retention hook in the handle allows you to wrap the extension cord around it so the cord won’t come unplugged.

To help you get your job done quickly, the electric weed trimmer has a dual-line feed, which means there are two lines rotating around the head of the trimmer. The string the electric line trimmer uses is the standard 0.065-inch line.

This weed eater has an adjustable handle to give you full control over different types of terrain. This electric string trimmer weighs 7.2 pounds, which is not the lightest weight trimmer in our lineup, but it???s not so heavy that it will put a lot of strain on your back. Additionally, the shaft is extendable for people of varying heights.

The shaft on this trimmer is straight. This is generally an advantage, especially when you???re trying to reach under low decks and other hard-to-reach places. The head adjusts into three different positions so you can get the best trimming angle. While it doesn???t rotate for easy edging as many of the products in our lineup do, the adjustability of the head facilitates edging better than most non-rotating weed eaters.

The electric string trimmer doesn’t require any tools to change the spool in the machine. As its name implies, this is an environmentally friendly machine, leaving no carbon footprint. It has an auto feed line so you won???t have to mess with it manually, until it???s time to change the spool.

This trimmer comes with a two-year warranty, which is below average. The website for Earthwise has good information about the products, but lists no contact information or user manual. However, we were able to find a PDF user manual for this product by doing a Google search. The manual has a lot of helpful information. You can also find contact information on page 9 of the manual, but it is frustrating that it took so much work to find it.

The Earthwise electric string trimmer has a dual-line head, a 15-inch cutting swath and a 6.25-amp motor, which should ease the burden of trimming your lawn.
