This cordless battery powered mower by Worx is very nice looking little machine. As you can see from the images it sports a very modern orange and black paint job making it look very sleek indeed. The WB782 is powered by a 24 volt power tank lead free battery and the machine also comes with a power panel showing you exactly how much life is left in the battery. The battery life for this mower is around 10,000 square feet, which is great for a machine of this size, and has proven to be more than enough to get though any small to medium sized lawn.
The cutting width of this mower is only 14 inches making it a very small mower, however that’s the entire point of this machine. It’s designed to be small, light and easy to handle which is exactly what makes it such a good choice for a small to medium sized lawns.
There are 3 cutting heights with this model which are controlled using a spring loaded changer making adjusting the height no problem at all. There are also 2 cutting modes, the first being power cut and the second being IntelliCut, which is where this machine gets interesting.
Worx is very solid brand with a number of reliable mowers that feature in the top 10 rated electric lawn mowers, all of which are backed by a 2 year warranty.
Regarding the power cut mode, although the name suggests that it’s powerful don’t be fooled into thinking you can plow through two foot high grass with this little guy. The IntelliCut mode is amazingly quiet, and I mean so amazingly quiet that you won’t believe it when you actually hear it. This cutting mode also automatically adjusts the cutting power to help conserve battery life which is a great piece of added technology.
The WG782 by Worx is a 3 in 1 type of lawn mower so it comes with both a grass catcher and mulcher standard straight out of the box and the controls are very simple to operate, including the safely lock which prevents the machine from being started if it’s not in place.
As mentioned above, this is a very small, lightweight and easy to manoeuvre mower, weighing in at only 30 pounds. It also folds up very well for storage with the fold away storage size being just 26 inches long, 17 inches wide and 17 inches high. You could be forgiven for thinking this mower is actually a toy until you unfold it and fire it up!
The minimal size and weight of this machine makes it very easy to handle, carry and fold away. The battery charges in just a few hours and if you feel the need to buy a new battery you can pick one up for around $85. You can leave the battery on charge and the charger will automatically keep it charged above 90% capacity.
Being a battery powered cordless electric mower also means there is no gas smell and no cord to run over and restrict your range.
Grass catcher is small and can be accidentally knocked off if you’re not careful but it’s not such a big issue and will really only possibly happen while you’re getting used to handling the mower.
This is certainly not a heavy duty machine at all and you must keep in mind the fact that you are actually buying a small 14 inch battery powered mower and not a 21 inch gas powered machine. This machine will also not be great if you have long and tough grass to get through so you need to make sure your grass is well maintained or the mower will struggle to cut properly and you will need to make a number of passes to get a great final result.
Overall this mower has a very sleek design and priced at $249 the Worx WG782 is an ideal choice of lawn mower for small to medium sized yards. The mower is small, light and easy to handle and represents great value for money. If you take pride in looking after your lawn you will love both the ease at which you will be able to operate this machine and the finished result you get. If you are looking for a small and light feature packed machine that is reliable and tough then this machine will certainly impress you.
