Now there really is a better choice. Until now, concerns about the run-time and performance of battery-powered lawn mowers may have discouraged you from turning to this greener, cleaner option. With its high capacity 24-Volt Power Tank battery, the Worx WG788 rescues you from your noisy, high-maintenance gasoline mower, without sacrificing power or mowing capacity. IntelliCut Technology ensures you have the power to tackle the tallest grass. With its 3-in-1 Cutting Functionality, the Worx 19 in. Cordless Lawn Mower offers you the flexibility of three different cutting options. The mulching feature chops clippings and distributes them evenly to help the lawn hold moisture and nutrients. The side discharge allows clippings to be swept quickly from the cutting chamber. And the bagging feature allows grass and leaves to be conveniently collected in the included grass catcher bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good I used my mower for the first time today..It did cut very well.But would cut off and have to be restarted a few times.Other than that iam very pleased with it.And hope it gives me good service for a while. September 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Model # WG788 - Wonderful and powerfull tool I bought this Lawn Mower one and a half years ago and works very well, it allows me the to mow the lawn 4 times per battery charge ( an area of 4,000sqf approx.), and I sharp the blade every season, so far I have not have any issue . The key here is to follow the manual instructions for usage, maintenance and more importantly to follow the battery care instructions. August 19, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great if ??? I have had this lawn mower for about 3 years now and I was hoping it would be a good replacement for the old gas lawn mower. I am sad to report this Worx model will not replace a gas mower anytime soon! The model started out great then toward the end of the summer I started noticing diminishing returns on the battery. It was taking two batteries to cut the whole yard (My yard is not that big) and the mower starting having problem going through "thicker" grass. When I say thicker, its the grass my gas mower has no issues with when I use it. During the second year my battery charger starting having problem and I would have to be unplugged and re-plug in when charging the battery. Now I am on the third year with the mower. The charger is not working properly and I can not finish cutting the yard using 2 batteries and thicker grass cutting .... forget about it.. its not happening. I am to the point now where I am about it stop using the mower all together. July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! This is the first season, so I can't speak to longevity, but being able to unplug the charger and cut grass is fantastic. No going for gasoline, filling, spilling, changing oil, etc. the battery lasts at least as long as it's rated (45 minutes) since I run out of power before the mower does after at least an Hour of cutting. Handles heavy grass easily. Only complaint so far is weight, and that's no real issue, but since this particular mower isn't self propelled, I have to manhandle it on the hills and embankments. Most of the weight comes from the battery, and I know current battery is as lite as it's going to get physically. Without the battery, mower can be lifted one handed, lol. May 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by WG780 5 seasons and still going strong. Battery charge indicator lights have gone, and I have to replace blade every other year, but it's nice to know it's electric and powerful enough to mow tall grass. May 24, 2014
