If you have a need for a compact cordless lawn mower, then the Worx WG782 may be the right choice for you. At 32 lbs, it is perfect for anyone looking for a motorized mower which is easy to carry and push. In this Worx WG782 review you will find some pros and cons, as well as some of the products specifications.

Torque On Demand Technology

WORX offers two 14-inch models in their zero emission cordless range: WG782 and WG775. The WG782 comes with IntelliCut technology which is intended to tackle taller grasses. The torque on demand technology gives you two cutting modes: QUIET and POWER. Basically, QUIET mode should be selected for your daily grass cutting task. As the name indicates, it permits you to mow at any time without disturbing the neighbors. The POWER mode is intended to be used for cutting through the tough stuffs.

Battery Runtime

The WG782 also offers a longer battery runtime. The lead acid battery is supposed to last up to 40 minutes, allowing you to cut up to 10,000 square feet per charge, depending on operating conditions. The 24-volt battery is removable. There is a detachable handle system for quick battery removal. The WG775 offers up to 30 minutes of runtime that is long enough to mow up to 6,000 square feet with a single charge.

Charging System

Speaking about battery, charging time is 5-7 hours. There is a power level indicator that tells you when it needs charging. A charger (input: AC 120V(60Hz, 1.0A) Output: 29.5Vdc, 1500mA) is shipped with the mower. According to the manual, it is a smart charger which means you can safely leave the battery on the charger for extended periods of time. The charger turns off automatically to save power after the battery is fully charged.

Cutting Height Settings

Of course, when shopping for a cordless lawn mower, battery capacity is not the only factor to consider. The Worx WG782 also features adjustable cutting height settings to help you maintain your lawn better. Three cutting height positions (2’’, 2.75”, 3.5’’) are available. It does not offer a single point cut height adjustment mechanism. You need to adjust one wheel at a time.

Grass Management Options

The WG782 is a 3-in-1 mower. It offers three different ways to deal with the grass clippings. You can collect or discharge the grass from the rear of the mower. A mulch insert and grass collection bag are included in the package. Grass bag capacity is 0.85 Bushels. If you decide to collect the grass, there is a grass bag level indicator that will alert you when the grass bag is full. Use the mulching insert when you want it to to cut the grass clippings into small pieces.


This lightweight, compact mower is intended for homeowners with small yards. With a narrow cutting deck, cutting grass on steep banks will not be a challenge. Coming with 5-1/2-inch diameter front and rear wheels, this mower is not a good option for lawns with an undulating terrain. It is ideal for flat, tight small places.

Positives and Negatives

The WORX WG782 is one of the most popular battery powered lawn mowers at Amazon.com. The mower is currently rated 4.1/5 stars. It is small but for many people it serves the purpose.

While most of the customer feedback for the mower has been positive, some customers have left negative reviews. A few complaints have been made about the handle. Reportedly, it is not high enough for comfort for taller people. However it is not a serious issue for the majority. Further complaints have been made about the cutting height adjustment. Some reviewers wish the unit came with a better mechanism. Despite some minor considerations, most of the customers have been satisfied with their purchase.

In terms of grass cutting performance, it definitely is not as strong as gas mowers. It is not designed to cut wet grass or very tall grass or for something as dense as zoysia or St. Augustine. That being said, for many people it fits the bill perfectly. It cuts dry grass nicely despite its toy-like appearance.

When it comes to construction, the majority of the material is plastic that suggests it will not take a whole lot of abuse. However, being made of plastic makes it light in weight. It is not self propelled but many people have found that it does not take a lot of effort to maneuver. Designed for light applications, it is something that you can carry from one grass area to another easily.


The WORX WG782 is not for everyone. But if you are looking for a machine which is light in weight, quiet, and small for mowing in tight spaces then based on the user feedback you will be pleased with this battery powered lawn mower. It is a great choice for a small suburban lawn with lots of obstacles.
