Complaint / review text:
I bought my WORX Trimmer about a year ago. At first I was happy about my purchase when I realized how light it was and how well it did the work. Right away though, I was disappointed to find out that one charge of the battery would not allow me to finish trimming my yard, which is not that big. So I would leave half of my yard unfinished every time as the battery takes between four to five hours to charge. This year I decided to buy a second battery to complement the other, but I changed my mind when I realized the battery cost $79. I decided to keep doing the job as I have been doing it with one battery. So today, after I finished mowing my lawn, I picked up the battery that has been plugged since last night, plugged it into the trimmer and all I got was about five seconds of power. I could not understand what happened. My wife suggested that the battery was dead, but I could not believe it since it is only a year old and has hardly been used.
Now as I read these reviews, I realized that I have been scammed just like millions of people. There is nothing I can do about it. I am now looking to borrow a trimmer as I do not have yet the money to buy a new one (a different brand, of course).in the meantime, my yard looks terrible and I feel very disappointed.
