Product Description

The WORX WG788 lawn mower is equipped with an electric motor running on a 36-volt battery. The battery is removable for easy charging. The unit has cordless operation and handle-pull start. It uses the patented IntelliCut technology which allows for the setting of different operation modes. The model provides mulching automatically. The grass clippings can be collected in a bag or discharged on the side. Let us now take a look at these and other features of the machine in greater detail.


The electric motor of this cordless lawn mower is virtually its heart. It powers the blade so that it can cut grass of different height and thickness effectively. I can say with certainty that the motor is sufficiently powerful to provide for the efficient operation of the unit. Since it runs on electricity, its operation is emission-free. It will definitely help you reduce your carbon footprint.

The IntelliCut technology is perhaps the most impressive feature of this lawn mower. Its purpose is to add more torque to the machine so that it can cut through thick and tall grass even more efficiently. You simply need to turn the knob to Power mode and you will see this otherwise small and compact machine turning into a real beast. You will cut the grass with a single pass just like a pro without any special skills or effort.

You can readily switch to Quiet mode when you do not need the extra torque for handling challenges. That way, you will save energy and ensure that the battery will last for longer. The machine will operate quietly so you will not have to worry about disturbing your neighbors. Your new lawn mower can certainly help set the beginning of a beautiful friendship between you and your neighbors.

The battery of this WORX battery powered lawn mower is removable. You can plug the charger into any electric outlet in your home, take the battery out of the unit and get it charged. This is quite convenient especially if you do not have electricity in your garage.

The handle-pull start works effectively. It is simple and easy to use. The motor will start working instantly. The machine comes with a lever for adjusting the mowing height. You can select six different heights between 1.5 and 3.5 inches.

This electric mower comes with a mulching blade. It not only cuts the grass but also produces small and fine clippings which form a ready to use mulching mass. What I really like about this feature is that you do not have to buy a separate attachment which turns the clippings into mulch.

You can readily attach the bag, which has a capacity of 1.6 bushels, to the back of WORX walk behind mower so that the mulch is collected instantly. This makes your life much easier while leaving the lawn in perfect condition. You can readily use the mulch as you wish. I personally love making compost with it. The other option is to have the fine grass clippings discharged to the side. This is a great option if you want the mulch to remain on the lawn for fertilization purposes.

The self propelled lawn mower from WORX comes with an ergonomic handle and easy to use controls. It has standard push operation but it is fairly easy to steer and to maneuver. The wheels will do well on both slippery and muddy terrains.


WORX WG788 has a 19-inch cutting swath. This puts it in the middle of the range in terms of this criterion. In general, the path is sufficiently large to provide for good operation. You will not have to make many passes even if you have a bigger lawn.

The cordless electric lawn mower can mow a lawn of some 18,500 square feet on a single battery charge. This is quite impressive and speaks volumes of the power of the motor and the efficiency of the IntelliCut technology. The unit is capable of handling a cutting area as large as 3/4 acre. Few of its counterparts have this capability.


Since this WORX lawn mower can be used for mowing an area which has size equal to that of six tennis courts, it is suitable for properties with medium to large lawns. No matter whether you have a two-bedroom house in the suburbs, a holiday home in the countryside or a larger family estate, you will certainly find this particular model practical and convenient to use. I like its versatility and I think that it is suitable for professional gardeners such as me.


The benefits of WORX WG788 which I found are:

  • Effective operation
  • Powerful
  • Suitable for lawns of various sizes
  • Versatile cutting height and clippings collection options
  • Green and quiet
  • Convenient use and storage
  • Little to no maintenance
  • 2-year manufacturer’s warranty


What I do not like about this model:

  • This electric mower is not particularly light and it has push operation. Hence, you need to use some effort to operate it. Still, the average adult can handle it perfectly.
  • The front wheels have a specific forward positioning which affects the maneuverability of the unit to an extent. It requires a bit more time and effort to cut the grass around trees and other obstacles in the garden.


I can certainly recommend the WORX WG788 cordless lawn mower to all home owners with lawns of different sizes who want to get them in perfect condition easily and quickly. It does a good job. It is functional and durable.
