The WORX WG783 lawn mower runs on an electric motor. This motor is powered by a 24-volt battery which is removable and which allows for cordless operation. The most notable features of this model include the push-button start switch, the 3-in-1 grass clippings disposing system and the ergonomic collapsible handle. The unit has a 14-inch cutting swath and comes with a charger, special mulching blade and a bag for clippings collection. You can adjust the cutting height of the unit using the one-hand adjustment system.

Features of the WORX WG783 Cordless Lawn Mower

The motor is the major feature of WORX mower so I will look into it first. In my opinion, it is well constructed and performs reliably. It operates efficiently for the size of the machine. It can cut grass with small to medium height. It should be able to handle weeds that are not too big and wet leaves as well. The motor has good energy efficiency so its use should not add much to your electricity bill.

The electric motor of this cordless lawn mower from WORX is quiet, especially when compared to its gas engine counterparts, and this is a benefit which I value extremely highly. I can assure you that you will have a much better relationship with your neighbors if you start using this machine. The other major benefit of the electric motor is that it produces no gas emissions. You will never have to worry about nasty smelling fumes. Besides, you will reduce your carbon footprint.

The 24-volt battery of WORX WG783 is dependable and this is its most valuable quality, at least in my opinion. It is removable so you can choose to charge it anywhere in the house. This is super convenient and saves you a lot of hassle. On the unit, you will find a batter indicator which shows you how much power is left. This also adds to the convenience of using the mower.

The plastic wheels of this cordless electric lawn mower are sufficiently large to allow for good mobility and maneuverability on flat terrains with minor obstacles. Still, the wheels are perfectly smooth and this may pose some challenges on wet and muddy terrains.

The one-hand height adjustment is a very practical and convenient feature to have. With WORX cordless lawn mower, you can select from different heights between 1.8 and 3.3 inches. Once you have set your preferred height, you can start the machine with the push of a button. There is no pulling which requires effort. You can be certain that the unit will start working instantly irrespective of the weather outside.

The 3-in-1 clippings disposal system adds greatly to the versatility of the WORX electric lawn mower. The unit comes with a mulching blade which you can use when you want the grass clippings to be finely cut so that mulch is produced. The fresh mulch is distributed directly on the lawn so it gets natural fertilization without any extra effort on your part.

The second option is to have the grass clippings discharged to the rear. The third option is to attach a bag to the back of the unit so that the trimmings can go directly in it. You can use the collected clipped vegetation for compost or dispose of it. I personally prefer the former option.

The handle of WORX lawn mower has an ergonomic design for better control and maximum comfort. The foam padding makes it even better. It is collapsible for easy storage of the unit.

Capabilities

WORX WG783 Lawn MowerThe cutting swath of the WORX lawn mower is 14 inches. This makes is perfectly suitable for small cutting areas. The cutting width is sufficiently large to allow you to make a small number of passes.

The machine is capable of cutting the grass on an area of 6,000 square feet. This is about the size of two tennis court. Again, this proves its capability of handling small lawns which are less than 1/4 acre. The battery will last for 30 minutes. This is sufficient time for trimming a whole small lawn. It may last even longer if you remove the mulching blade.

Suitability

This cordless lawn mower will cater to the needs of individuals who have a small lawn on their property. It is a fine tool for small family homes, villas and city houses with small yards. Given its lightness (the unit weighs just 31 pounds) it can be operated by any adult member of the household despite the fact that it has standard push operation.

Pros

The main benefits and advantages of the WORX lawn mower are:

  • – Light and compact
  • – Easy and comfortable to steer
  • – Good efficiency
  • – Versatility
  • – Reliable, green and quiet operation
  • – Durability
  • Basic maintenance only
  • – 2-year warranty

Cons

The things which I did not like about this model are:

  • The mower may not be able to handle very wet grass well. That is why you may have to avoid mowing early in the morning if you want to achieve perfect results.
  • The bag is not particularly large. In fact, it has a capacity of just 0.85 bushels. You may have to dispose of clippings more frequently than you think while mowing.

Conclusion

Overall, the WORX WG783 cordless lawn mower is a good choice for small lawns. It is easy to work with and does a good job. It is compact, quiet and green.
