The WORX ECO WG780 Cordless Electric Lawn Mower is strong enough to mow up to 17,500 square feet of grass on one charge. It features the WORX company’s ErgoSum Design Technology so that users can adjust the handle to whichever angle they are the most comfortable with. The soft grips also reduce vibrations and fatigue.
The WORX ECO WG780 Cordless Electric Lawn Mower has been well received with customers giving it an overall rating of four stars. It is a versatile mower that can both mulch and rear bag. The electric motor is virtually maintenance free. It runs very quietly, and produces no carbon emissions.
Customer reviews of the WORX ECO WG780 Cordless Electric Lawn Mower have been mostly positive, with over half of respondents giving this mower the highest rating of 5 stars. Customers were impressed right out of the box as the mower comes virtually completely assembled. Only a couple of knobs to be tightened to set the handle into place, and it is ready to go. The battery is removable, and has an easy to see charge indicator so users will know how much power is left.
One reviewer was very impressed with how this WORX ECO WG780 Cordless Electric Lawn Mower handles tall grass. They had let their lawn go, and the grass had grown to a height of 22 to 28 inches. Although the blade did slow down considerably in the thicker patches of long grass, it never choked. Backing the mower up and letting the blade clear itself got it ready for another go. Comments also indicate that this is a great mulching mower, leaving mulched grass that is practically invisible.
Negative reviews hammered WORX for their customer service. Several of the customers stated that their customer service experience was the worst ever. There can be a long wait to speak with a representative. One customer was alarmed to hear that they were 38th in queue to speak with someone. Replacements for defective parts and batteries have taken weeks to arrive, which can be a major inconvenience during the spring and summer growing seasons.
Some reviewers also mentioned that this WORX ECO WG780 Cordless Electric Lawn Mower is heavier than their previous gas powered mowers. And, this model is not self-propelled. This is not a problem for those who enjoy getting a workout in while mowing their grass. But, this mower can be difficult to push for those who are used to a self-propelled gas powered mower. WORX does have a self-propelled electric mower, but it is more expensive.
