    Good Mower, Great Battery Range, Good Side Discharge… still some room for improvement…, June 3, 2010

    This review is from: WORX WG788 19-Inch 36 Volt Cordless 3-In-1 Lawn Mower With Removable Battery & IntelliCut (Lawn & Patio)

    I got this in today, Having tried to find all of the information available prior to buying. I was between this mower and the Black and Decker and the difference for me was the power on demand system to conserve energy. I figured that could be worth the difference in delivery time since I thought that feature would be handy.

    I found an advertising video showing a lady pushing the mower along and turning a knob on the handle to make it louder and work harder on the tall grass. (this may have been the WG789 in retrospect)
    Unfortunately the knob isn’t on the handle, rather the knob is down on the mower deck in front of the battery. This seems like it would make it a much less usefull feature as you have to stop and lean over and adjust it, I guess this is visible in the bove picture but there are no labels or decals to highlight it.

    UPDATE: This is really not inconvenient after all. It’s only when changing to areas where it may be longer or wetter that you need the power feature and it’s not that inconvenient to be on the deck.

    The only other complaint is that the quick adjust for the handle works great when pushing the handle down, however if it is set in the high position (three settings available) and you lift up on the handle to move the rear wheels it can pop out and fold forward like it would for storage. This doesn’t seem to be a problem in the low and medium setting. I can likely fix this myself and the ergonomics are very good. UPDATE: The initial reaction of the handle, to pop out when lifted on in high, went away after just fifteen minutes of use in the high position.

    The mower is very easy to push and the larger rear wheels are nice for turning. I only tried the mower out in my lawn (raining out and wet) shortly and the lawn wasn’t that tall. The cut is good and the mower is quiet, I didn’t notice a lot of difference between “quiet” and “power” settings, but the grass wasn’t very tall and I wasn’t trying to cut it very short. UPDATE: the difference is there but most evident in tall wet grass.

    I have about a .9 Acre yard and got this to do edges, areas where I couldn’t get to with a mower and to use in a pinch. I will mow my lawn Saturday to determine how many square feet the battery and mower are actually good for, I will also post pictures.

    UPDATE: June 4, pm

    Jut got home to it having been a nice day and the lawn isn’t too wet, damp for sure, but not too tall, so I took her out for a spin. Battery had been used* (*out of box) slightly last night and charged up fully overnight. I checked the battery very religiously and regularly. It was about 35-40 minutes when it went from 3 lights to 2, then about 35-40 more till it went from 2 lights to one. I ended doing about 110′ stripes and checking the battery at the end of every run and it had Just dropped to 1 light, after about 2 minutes of not mowing it went back up to 2 lights, and it didn’t noticably slow down, but I stopped before figuring I should have read the manual 😛 and don’t want to mess up the SLA battery.

    The charger does seem to be a decent piece of kit too.

    I Cut the grass on the medium setting ~2-3.5″, I am happy with how high this deck will go it seems like it is almost 6″ which is nice for organic lawns as tall grass doesn’t get as many weeds. Also the adjustment is easy and feels solid. I was cutting mostly from 2-4″ of grass off so I wasn’t making a big cut but I did a bunch of edges and clumps where I was cutting 6-12″ of grass down and it ate right through without any hesitation!!!

    I think it will do the whole yard when it’s dry in the summer!!! Pushing this will keep me active, it is a bit cumbersome to turn, just a bit heavy mostly

    The bagger seemed to work very well, although I only did a small 20’x60′ “lawn” with the bagger, then mulched another 20’x60′ more “lawn” and noted that I couldn’t tell the difference between the bagged and mulched am happy. I still think the side discharge is the most efficient way to process the grass, so I proceeded to side discharge the rest of the yard. I think the side discharge seems to save energy. I mowed about 85% of the grass in my lot, including a lot of 12-16″ tall clumps where the rider I’ve been using has been missing. I mowed back and forth and in as even of a grid as I could, switching between power and quiet as needed, this feature seems to really work and can extend mowing time, also not really that inconvenient located you only switch between runs so it works great. My lot is ~38,000 sq ft but I figured out that I have about ~22,000 sq ft grass/lawn, and have under 4000 left,
    I believe that this mower actually just mowed a bit over 18,000 sq ft, on it’s maiden voyage, NICE!!

    It’s an absolute delight when a product, not only meets expectations but, exceeds them!!

    Edit: 5/20/2011 one year later, the mower still…

    Poor Quality and Poor Customer Service, August 2, 2010

    I purchased the cordless WORX lawnmower in June and by mid July it would not start anymore. The battery was fine, so I assume it is the engine. I tried to contact WORX via their email, but the reply stated something to the effect that due to high volume they were unable to respond to my email. So I called. And due to high volume I was prompted to leave my return phone number and they would respond by next business day. OK, so they did respond next business day. However their customer service was poor. I was responded to with quite a few “uh-huh, uh-huh, yeah”. Very annoying for an engineer who knows the battery is charged and the item is defective. The nearest “authorized service representative” is 40 miles away and is only open the same hours I happen to work – you know 8-5, Monday-Friday. So as soon as I can take time off work, I will be loading the lawnmower into my car and taking the hour there, hour back trip. I was already forewarned there is a two week waiting period before they can get to my unit, even if I call ahead (first come, first serve). So I might get my lawnmower back by the end of summer. Good thing I kept my gas-powered lawnmower! So in summary, beware if you actually have an issue and have to deal with the warranty. Both the help desk and the authorized service representatives are not customer oriented. 🙁
