Design – Many impressive features but a small drawback

This mower was designed well but it had some minor drawbacks. Before we get into all of that, take a look at this video explaining the major features of the mower and how they work.

We loved a lot of things about this design. It is not perfect but the good outweighs the bad.

Design Pros

Convenient push start option

Eliminates the annoying cord pulling in the gas mowers. Just the push of a button and the pull of the bail switch and you are ready to roll. Happy riddance to that pull string feature from the gas mowers.

3-in-1 bagging, mulching, and sideways discharge available

Always good to have options. Nobody really uses sideways discharge anymore, unless you love to rake.

Intellicut feature – for battery conservation

This WORX mower gives us the option to go on eco mode or power mode depending on the consistency of your grass. For those thick patches, we can use the power option then switch to the eco mode when the grass is thin.

Battery level indicators on battery and handle

This tells you how much energy is left in your battery with the push of a button. In a similar way, the battery level is indicated on the handles while mowing. The mower comes with two batteries but it can work with just one.

One handle adjusts the heights of all four wheels.

This is an upgrade from having to adjust both the back and front wheels. The variation in height adjustments is also satisfactory. There are 7 height adjustments between 1 1/4 inches and 4 inches.

Wash-out port – Simple yet amazing!

The hose attachment on the side of the mower makes it easy to clean the grass from the bottom of the mower. You do not see this feature on most electric mowers.

Vertical storage option

Saves us some space so no need to get rid of all the clutter to fit this one in.

Design Con

  • Lighter than gas mowers but still heavy for some people to push, especially on inclines.
  • Batteries take 3 hours to charge

Power – Can it handle your lawn?

This is one of the more powerful mowers on the market. With the 56V 2.5Ah batteries, these mowers have the capacity to deliver 140W of power each hour. How does that translate into performance? Well, they do a pretty good job.

Performance – What can your WORX mower really do??

  • Grass cut quality was excellent.
  • Bagging was good.
  • Mulching is good.
  • The 7th-position (4″) on the height adjustment handle allows the WORX mower to cut tall grass well without stalling.
  • The battery allows you to cut 1/4 Acres for 35-40 minutes in moderately grown grass.
  • Cuts wet grass well
  • Mulches damp leaves.

The bad:

  • Battery dies faster in thick, overgrown grass but this is to be expected due to the extra workload.

Efficiency and ease of use? Is it hard to mow with your WG772?

It comes fully pre-assembled. The only thing you need to do is charge the battery for 5hrs initially then you are ready to mow.

The easy parts

  • Removing and replacing the battery is made simple – you just push the batteries in and it snaps in place.
  • Charging it is simple, just plug the charger into a power outlet and place the battery in the allotted slot.
  • Fitting and removing the bag is no trouble at all.
  • Adjusting the handle height is made simple by the adjusters on the handle.
  • Both batteries are placed in the mower at once so unlike other mowers, you do not need to stop to replace batteries when one dies.

The not so easy part

  • Steel deck makes for really good durability but it adds to the weight, especially with two batteries. It is heavy to push when the bag is almost full. A self-propelled feature would have been awesome here.

Durability. How long will this mower last?

The only problems we found here were that the blades seemed a bit thin and there have been complaints about faulty batteries. The mower itself looks very strong with a steel deck, sturdy handles, and wheel attachments.

Ease of locating replacement parts

This is pretty easy. Like the mower, the parts can be ordered on Amazon and delivered to your front door.

Replacement batteries, chargers, wheels and assembling parts, blades, etc are found separately on Amazon.

Customer service from the company

Averaged because there have been complaints that the phone lines are hard to reach and that there are no service shops locally so the mower has to be shipped back to the company for repairs. 

Value – Is this WORX cordless mower a worthy Purchase?

Thumbs up from C-ELMR

This mower is worth the purchase if you have a small to medium-sized lawn. What we love about this mower is that it has a great design and it gets the job done. It has two 56V batteries included in the purchase and the batteries and charger can be used in other WORX products.
