Worx WG775 Lil Mo Review
The WG775 Lil’Mo cordless lawn mower from WORX offers a reliable and powerful cutting tool for the lawn. It features a 14-inch wide cutting deck and a 24-volt battery which is removable for convenient charging, inside or outside the mower.
The 3-in-1 system offers users a variety of cutting and disposing methods; mulching, bagging or rear discharging. On the mulching mode, the blades finely cut up the grass clippings to be re-fed onto the lawn for a natural fertilizer, ensuring a healthy and lush yard. The mower starts up with the push of a button and pull of a lever, which removes the tricky pull-starts necessary of gas or oil powered lawn mowers.
The high-tech design of this WORX mower means that, depending on the conditions of the lawn, you can choose the level of power in the blades; for dense grass and weeds opt for ‘Power’ mode and for more recently-mowed grass, switch to ‘Quiet’ mode. On this Quiet mode, the battery can run for up to an hour or 18,500 square feet on a single charge – not bad! There are adjustable height settings, from 1.8 to 3.3 inches.
Buyers were satisfied with how easy the mower is to operate and push with such a lightweight design – a notable number of reviews have suggested this mower to people who do not have the strength for other, more heavy-duty machines.
The performance, cut and drive of the mower impressed. Long term maintenance is limited, and the bagging system is designed with the user in mind, easily removed and attached. Space-confined users also appreciated the easy fold-down handle.
Some reviews have mentioned that the 14-inch deck does not give a wide enough cutting path, so it requires more passes to complete the lawn, making the mower better suited to smaller lawns. Another observation was that the discharge chute occasionally gets clogged and needs emptying manually.
The main concern with this WORK mower is the long-term battery life; over time some users have noticed that the battery lasts a shorter and shorter amount of time. This has meant that occasionally, a lawn that used to be mowed in one battery charge no longer can be. It has been suggested that this fault is due to the battery charger which does not shut off when the battery heats up and becomes overcharged.
A drawback to the lightweight design is that on an already even terrain, the mower occasionally bounces, which leaves patches uncut.
