Questions & Answers

Can you attach a heavyweight plastic bag to the machine without it creating a mess?

Asked by: Preacher
Yep. As long as the bag opening is larger than the waste chute. Curl the bag over the bottom of the frame and put the mulcher over it.

I have pampas grass I need to cut down each spring. Will this unit shred it?
Asked by: Jim
Have not used it on pampas grass (only leaves) - the "reed" sections may be too hearty. If you can cut it down with a regular string weed eater, the mulcher should work on it.

Customer Reviews

Worx 6.8 in. 13 Amp 2 HP Leaf Mulcher is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 316.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Design needs tweaking I have owned a Worx WG430 leaf mulching machine for two years now. While I am impressed by the overall quality, I have three issues. First, the machine in my opinion does not shed the leaves finely enough - why not slightly narrow the slits that allow the shredded leaves to drop down into the collection bag? Secondly, in order to clean the air filter, it is necessary to completely remove the plastic motor shroud which is held in place by six screws. This is inconvenient when the amount of leaves to be mulched is large. Plus, regardless of the size of the job, it does not take long for the air filter to get clogged. Why not modify the shroud so that the filter end can be flipped down for easy cleaning, or at least change from screw fasteners to a clip system, similar to the clips that hold the funnel to the motor housing? Thirdly, the instructions for cleaning the air filter say "Follow instructions for replacing cutting lines and for cleaning air filter.....". My question is - what instructions? There are none. It's a good machine - but it could be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I received this leaf mulcher about a week before we got blasted with snow and was able to use it a little bit while the weather was still cooperating. I thought it did a good job mulching the leaves and am really glad someone put the effort into creating this much-needed piece of equipment and offer it at a reasonable price. It didn't seem like there were 11 bags of leaves reduced to 1 but the bag usage is, without question, reduced significantly. That said, I always stuff those bags to the MAX so maybe their 11 bag equivalent is based on loosely filled bags. The only thing that springs to mind about using this piece of equipment is to have a set of earphones/plugs handy. This thing is pretty loud and should not be operated without them. Overall, this mulcher performs as I anticipated it would. Could it be improved upon? Sure, with a higher price tag. Does it do the job and is it affordable? For sure! I'm glad I came across this unit and hope it withstands the use for many seasons to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time saver Have had this mulcher for many years! Still going strong. 1st WORX product I ever bought. Have since bought 4 other products. Makes doing my leaves in the fall, a lot easier! Highly recommended [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LEAF BLENDER ! Okay, I was cynical about this product before I bought it... but it does the job! ... LEAF BLENDER ! Okay, I was cynical about this product before I bought it... but it does the job! You do have to take some of the claims about the compaction ratio with a grain of salt.... it depends on how you pack your leaves by hand. If you just loaded bags with no compaction at all, yes you can probably get close to the 11:1 bag ratio. But if you really worked at compacting your leaves by hand, your ratio may come in at more like 5:1 or 3:1. Still, that is pretty awesome. I shredded my entire yard which could take 8-9 bags before into 2.5 bags with the shredder. Minus 1 star - it does not play well with the compostable paper bags. I ended up with a pretty much destroyed paper bag and a mess on the ground. A plastic bag would probably work better, but I did not try that.... instead I got my sewing machine out and made a reusable cloth "catcher" bag that works great (picture). When the bag is full I flip it upside down into the paper bag and just empty the contents. I will probably try to find some steel fishing leader to replace the plastic "strings".

Rated 2 out of 5 by from under powered for real yard work I have nearly every tool works makes, so I'm far from an unsatisfied customer of WORX products However - Perhaps I'm missing something on the Worx Leaf shredder but this is the biggest waste of effort!!. I recently purchased (well a few months back) and I spend more time cleaning out the hopper, replacing the string, and fiddling with keeping the unit running than actually clearing my yard of all the leaves. What am i missing here? Why did this thing get high reviews? The "weed eater" string seems so pitifully under sized that it is melting away after only a couple of bags of oak leaves. If anything is out of the narrow window of functionality of this unit, it completely loses it's usefulness. As careful as i am, if there is the slightest moisture in the leaves, the hopper becomes clogged, if there are any random twigs, then that only accelerates the issue of the string wearing out sooner. It seems WORXs missed the mark with this thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it was designed to do Read the instructions and know it's designed for mulching leaves - not sticks. It's easy to set up and works perfectly. Yes it takes more leaves when they are dry and the manual explains what to do if your leaves are wet. It will go through strings faster if you let sticks go in with the leaves. I think leaves that are raked into a pile are more problematic. Use a leaf blower to make a pile and you will have fewer sticks. I filled two 8x4x2 raised beds for a veggie garden in 1.5 hrs. The leaves will settle and I will be adding more over time. I will also be mulching more leaves for flower beds and buying less landscaping mulch. Yes you need to wear eye protection and a mask and should wear hearing protection. I prefer a mask with filters over a cheap dust mask for max protection. I'm thrilled with the product and how easy it is to clean and store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Hard Worker I have lots of trees and attempted to purchase this machine last year, however there were non available from 'any' source. Got one two weeks ago. Much faster than using the Worx Blower/Vac-Mulcher. It will mulch as fast as you can dump leaves in the hopper. The use of trimmer line over blade type tools makes this a safer machine for fingers but does not diminish its voracious appetite for leaves. I still use my Worx Blower/Vac for final cleanup. The trimmer line is simple to change and unless you throw a lot of small twigs and sticks, one set of 2 lines will hold up through more than one use. This machine is well built, sturdy, as with all Worx tools I have purchased, and breaks down and stores within itself, very compact. I highly recommend this mulcher over any other I have seen on the market. I also own a gas powered mulcher/chipper and prefer this tool for mulching.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sticks Works well shredding leaves. Concerned it may get damaged when sticks are thrown in. Now will have to separate out sticks. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
