PROS / The WORX Cordless Lawn Mower’s two batteries give you a combined 40 minutes of mowing time.
CONS / This mower isn’t self-propelled.
VERDICT / The WORX Cordless Lawn Mower is adequate for homeowners who want a quiet machine that can handle large yards, but it isn’t the best option for those who struggle to push a mower that isn’t self-propelled.
The WORX WG772 Cordless Lawn Mower is an electric lawn mower that features a wide 19-inch cutting path. Gas-powered mowers require maintenance and produce smelly fumes and plenty of noise. With this WORX cordless lawn mower, you can mow your lawn without worrying about disturbing your neighbors and still get a clean, professional cut without running out of fuel or dealing with messy oil changes.
The WG772 comes with two li-ion batteries that are used at the same time. In our tests, the two 56-volt batteries lasted up to 40 minutes on a full charge, which should be plenty of power for a yard up to 1/3 acre in size. The batteries weigh about 2 pounds each, which is typical for li-ions. They are removable and fully recharge in two hours using the included charger. This machine comes with a convenient battery power indicator, which shows you how much power remains while you mow.
The best electric lawn mowers strike a balance between weight and performance. The WORX WG772 weighs just under 53 pounds, so it’s one of the heavier li-ion battery-powered models we reviewed. A full bag of clippings will further weigh it down, especially since this particular model has a bag that is larger than most. Older adults, those with injuries and those who struggle to move heavy objects may find this electric lawn mower increasingly difficult to maneuver as the bag fills, although it is much lighter than a comparable gas-powered mower.
This WORX mower isn’t self-propelled, which can also make it difficult to push. However, it has a mulching feature and a side discharge point, both of which make it lighter and easier to handle.
WORX includes a three-year warranty to protect against any defects. In the event you have any questions or run in to problems, you can reach out to customer service through live chat on the company's website. If you prefer to speak to a representative by phone, a hotline is also available. There are no service centers for this lawn mower, so all claims and repairs must be handled through the company directly.
The WORX WG772 Cordless Lawn Mower sports many of the features advanced electric lawn mowers have, including a long battery life and large bag size. If you prefer to mow your lawn first thing in the morning or if you live in close quarters with neighbors, consider the WORX for its quiet operation. The WG772 is lighter than a gas-powered mower but heavier than most electric ones, so it may be too difficult for some users to push as the bag fills with clippings. This mower is an excellent choice if you are looking for a powerful, quiet electric lawn mower and don't plan to bag your grass clippings.
