Worx WG775 review
The Worx WG775 is a small cordless lawn mower that is mainly made of plastic. However, do not be fooled to think the mower is flimsy. To the contrary, it is actually sturdy and the overall quality is good.
Since the WG775 only weighs 33 pounds (with the battery pack), it is very easy to maneuver. You can push this mower up steep inclines without breaking a sweat. However, I wish the wheels were larger to make it even easier to push and maneuver.
The handle can be adjusted so it can fit anybody. This is easily done without any tools and takes only a few seconds. The handlebars are covered with a soft foam that makes them very comfortable to hold. When you are finished mowing your lawn, you can fold the handlebars over the top of the mower so it takes up minimal storage space. Another thing worth mentioning is that safety key to prevent someone to accidently starting the mower and get hurt.
With its narrow cutting width of only 14 inches, the Worx WG775 is best suited from small gardens. The battery pack let you cut up to 6,000 square feet in a single charge, which suits this mower.
The 24 volt battery pack sits on top of the deck and can be removed. You can either recharge the battery when it sits on the mower or bring the battery inside. Recharging a flat battery takes about 4 to 5 hours and the fully charge battery let you mow for about 30 minutes.
Recharge your battery after use; even though it is not empty, to ensure you always have a full charge the next time you need to mow your lawn. During the winter, charge the battery every second month to ensure the life span of the battery.
WG775 vs WG782
The Worx WG775 is almost identical to the Worx WG782. Well, it is basically the same mower, but the WG782 has something that is called IntelliCut. This function, IntelliCut, lets you choose between two power modes, power and normal. When I tried the WG782 I couldn’t really tell the difference between the two power modes. However, the WG782 with its IntelliCut have a better battery capacity then the WG775. If you want to know more about the IntelliCut you can read my review of the Worx WG782 here.
|Worx WG775||Worx WG782|
|Power source||24 V battery||24 V battery|
|Cutting swath||14 inches||14 inches|
|Battery capacity||30 minutes run time, Cuts up to 6,000 sq. ft.||40 minutes run time, Cuts up to 10,000 sq. ft.|
|Weight||About 33 pounds||About 33 pounds|
It can be difficult to know which one of these mowers you should go for, but I recommend you to think through if you need the extra 10 minutes battery capacity or not. The price difference between the WG775 and WG782 is minimal, just a few dollars.
Adjusting cutting height
Adjust the cutting height with the lever on the left hand side of the mower, from 1.8” up to 3.3”. The operation of this lever is a bit awkward and not as smooth as it could have been. If you like to adjust the cutting height for different parts of your yard, you will most likely get annoyed with it. On the other hand, if you never adjust with the cutting height and just let stay at one height this will not bother you.
The Worx WG775 let you choose to either mulch, discharge the clippings to the rear or bag them.
The rear bag is quite small, just as the rest of the mower. It is filled up fast, but it is easy to removed and refit the bag. The bag has a plastic frame and handle that makes it easy to carry and emptying the bag.
Mulching the clippings works great, the mower leaves behind finely cut grass that disappears into the lawn quickly.
- Removable battery pack.
- Awkward to adjust cutting height.
- Too small wheels.
