Product Description

The WORX WG789 lawn mower is the most sophisticated of the WG line. It has a compact aerodynamic design and an electric motor. The motor is powered by a battery which is removable for convenient charging. The PaceSetter technology allows the machine to operate in a self-propelled mode in line with your own pace. The IntelliCut technology delivers more torque to the machine when you have more challenging mowing tasks. The model comes with a cutting height adjustment system and a 3-in-1 cutting system for grass clippings disposal. It has a cutting swath of 19 inches.


The 11-amp electric motor of WORX WG789 operates efficiently thanks to its innovative design and masterful construction. You should expect it to work well for years to come with no maintenance whatsoever. It is quite powerful as well.

The quiet operation of the lawn mower’s motor is a benefit which I like very much as I (like most people) have fuzzy neighbors. You will certainly be on good terms with yours if you start using this machine. The operation of the motor produces no gas emissions whatsoever. It works in a clean, green and convenient way.

The 36-volt battery of this cordless lawn mower can be taken out of the unit for recharging. This means that you can charge it anywhere in the house. This is quite practical for people who do not have heated garages with electric outlets in them.

The PaceSetter technology is one of the most unique features of this WORX cordless lawn mower. It not only allows for the delivery of power to the wheels so that you do not have to push the unit. It actually selects the speed intuitively. You do not have to use any levers or switches for the purpose. You simply need to grab the handlebar and start walking. The system measures the force with which you push the machine and adjusts the speed accordingly. The speed range is from 0.6 to 3.6 mph.

The IntelliCut technology is another ingenious solution of the designers of WORX WG789. It delivers extra torque on demand. You just need to switch to Power mode and you will get more torque for mowing areas with tall, thick and/or wet grass and fallen leaves.

There is a single level for cutting height adjustment which is easy to use. You can choose from six different height increments which fall between 1.5 and 3.5 inches. I highly appreciate this feature as it helps me create different lawn patters which my clients love.

The 3-in-1 cutting system of WORX WG789 is super versatile. You can have the grass clippings discharged directly on the side through the chute so that they do not get in the way. The other option is to have them discharged into the specially designed bag which is attached to the rear of the lawn mower. The bag has a capacity of 1.6 bushels so it is sufficiently large to be highly functional.

The third option is mulching. The special mulching blade chops the grass trimmings into fine pieces which fall directly on the ground. That way, the lawn gets the nutrients which it requires naturally.

The rugged wheels with treaded tires of the machine provide good traction on all kinds of terrains. The power indicator shows you how much battery power you have left at all times. The control handlebar has an ergonomic design.


With a cutting swath of 19 inches, this WORX cordless mower is a very good performer. You will not have to make many passes to mow the lawn. At the same time, the width is sufficiently small to allow you to maneuver around obstacles such as trees.

The unit is capable of mowing the grass of an area which measures approximately 12,500 square feet on a single battery charge. The battery will last for around 45 minutes in quiet mode. These capabilities make the model suitable for lawns of all sizes.

The self-propelled feature and the rugged wheels allow the WORX mower to work on all kinds of terrains. It can handle various grass cutting challenges thanks to the IntelliCut technology.


This push lawn mower is suitable for medium-sized to large lawns measuring from 1/2 to 2/3 acre. It can be used in family homes and holiday homes with larger estate. It is suitable for professional use on private properties and in public and commercial facilities. A person with any level of physical strength can operate it efficiently. It can be used by women and the elderly.


The things which I like about WORX WG789 lawn mower are:

  • Intuitive operation
  • Grass cutting efficiency
  • Quiet and environmentally friendly operation
  • Versatile grass cutting and clippings collection options
  • Ease of use
  • Reliability and durability
  • Compact design
  • 2-year warranty


The drawbacks of the model which I found are:

  • The considerable weight of the unit (91 pounds) may make maneuvering a bit challenging, but you should be able to get the hand of it eventually.
  • Despite the sufficient volume of the bag, you may have to dispose of the clippings a few times during mowing if you have a large lawn. This is not a major issue, however.


Overall, this review finds that this WORX WG789 19-inch 36 volt cordless PaceSetter self propelled 3-In-1 lawn mower with removable battery & IntelliCut by WORX is an excellent innovative solution for the home. It has a lot to offer and only minor flaws.
