Product Description

Product Description

If you can't burn leaves or rake them into the street, you need a better way to deal with the mess. This nifty Worx leaf mulcher is a great solution. It uses a powerful 120V, 13 Amp motor and a bladeless mulching system that uses normal heavy-duty grass trimmer line to reduce the volume of your leaves to 1/11th of the original size. And best of all, it turns the leaves into a useful mulch and compost that you can recycle into your garden or flowerbeds. The easy-to-operate system features a 13in. cutting diameter and can mulch up to 53 gallons of leaves a minute. It assembles quickly without tools and stores easily when not in use. 2-year limited warranty.


The WORX WG430 Leaf Mulcher is the all-in-one solution to an annual problem: piles and piles of leaves in the yard. It smartly disposes of heaps of leafy yard waste in a few simple steps, turning hundreds of gallons of rotting leaves into vitamin-rich, organic mulch that's a perfect fertilizer for your flowerbed or garden. The WORX Flex-a-Line bladeless mulching system uses normal, heavy-duty grass trimmer line instead of dangerous metal blades to easily and safely mulch through leaves and debris.

A Lean, Green, Mulching Machine
Shredding leaves with a traditional gas shredder/mulcher can disturb the environment with noxious air and loud noise. Thankfully, with the electric WORX Leaf Mulcher, you can put the 'green' back in 'green thumb'.

Showcasing a powerful 13 Amp motor that delivers 8,500 RPMs, the WORX Leaf Mulcher will reduce a mass of dead leaves and twigs to 1/11th of its original size. That means you won't be lugging 11 bags of whole leaves to the curb for distribution or disposal--instead, you'll only have to worry about a single bag.

With the WORX Leaf Mulcher's 13-inch cut diameter and oversized mouth, you can mulch up to 53 gallons of leaves per minute. Acres of dried leaves can be collected and pulverized into manageable mounds of mulch in practically no time at all.

Create Mulch and Compost
It is estimated that almost 25% of the urban waste stream is made of yard waste and debris. In the fall, it can account for more than 60% of what flows into your local landfill.

The WORX Leaf Mulcher actually transforms your yard's dead leaves and debris, which would normally end up in a landfill, into vitamin-rich mulch and compost that can be recycled into your garden or flowerbeds.

Shredded leaf mass furnishes nutrients that assist in new plant growth during the growing season. Furthermore, mixing mulch into your garden and flower beds will aerate the soil and encourage new growth. Additionally, leaf mulch will increase water retention in the soil, reducing watering time and saving money.

Compact, Versatile, and Easy to Use
At less than 20 pounds, the WORX Leaf Mulcher features a compact design, in which the disassembled parts nest neatly together for convenient off-season storage on a shelf in your shed or garage. Setup takes only a few minutes, with absolutely no additional tools required!

In addition, the mulcher features a dust-reducing clean-air motor cooling system. Air and mulched leaves are separated through an external cooling air intake and exhaust to significantly reduce dust generation.

For further convenience, The WORX Leaf Mulcher's safe Flex-a-Line bladeless mulching system features tool-less cutting line replacement and a universal bag holder that accepts both paper and plastic bags. To top it off, an oversized on/off switch allows for easy, hassle-free operation.

The WORX heavy-duty Leaf Mulcher is the one machine that will end hours of misery once and for all and will make fall cleanup fast and easy!

What's in the Box
WORX WG430 Leaf Mulcher, 24 replacement lines, and one universal bag holder.

Tool-free locking system enables easy assembly and storage.

It shreds leaves and small twigs well.
Carl Ricchetti
The string line used for shredding is easy to change but does require monitoring for changing fairly frequently.
It is very easy to assemble and use, is lightweight, and pretty sturdy as well.

I am a huge believer in creating compost and living in Oregon with an abundance of trees and leaves has led me to try a number of different products that mulch. I have purchased many combination blower-mulchers as well as stand-alone leaf eater (leaf shredder) electricity-driven products. I would like to share with you my review of the WORKX WG430 & compare it to the Flowtron LE-900 and to the McCulloch 14-AMP Electric Chipper/Shredder- MCS2001.

All 3 pieces of equipment shred leaves sufficient to allow for mulching and ultimately composting. The WORKX is easily put together and this is so simple that the instructions are not needed. The assembled unit is stable despite some other reviews that it may not be so. The assembled unit is easily disassembled for better cleaning, for storage and to facilitate putting in new leaf-eater line. The Flowtron assembly is a little more involved but easily done. The assembled unit does not feel as sturdy as the WORKX but it is durable and the first Flowtron unit that I bought in 2007 lasted two years; it was the electric motor that died, and not any other part of the unit. I still have the McCulloch chipper-shredder. It has lasted over 5 years and shows no signs of impending demise. Therefore, I do not think that the construction, stability or assembly/disassembly of these units plays a major role in my choice of what the best unit is.

The WORKX and Flowtron both generate a major amount of dust and the Flowtron is especially noisy. Definitely advise use of a face mask or some form of protection for the eyes and ideally the lungs (simple mask) when working with dry leaves. Ear protection is important as well.

I am buried in leaves after 4 straight weekends of rain. I have a 3-bucket lawn tractor, but when the leaves get deep it clogs constantly and needs to be emptied every 20 feet. So I bought the WORX WG430. You can't feed it faster than it can eat the leaves, or it will clog. However, if you feed it a couple of handfuls and wait until it grinds them up before feeding more, it works great. It grinds the leaves into almost a soil. A heavy-duty plastic bag of 30 gallons hold a rather large pile. It works with wet and dry leaves (you feed wet ones slower). If you change the plastic strings with each bagfull, it really works great. I have filled about 10 bags so far and just dump the contents in the garden as mulch. Sticks should be avoided. I live in the woods and have found it better to use bare hands to pick up the leaves so I can feel and pull them out before feeding the leaves. If one gets in and bounces around, you can power down and pull it out. Little twigs about the size of pipe cleaners go through fine. Finger-sized sticks need to be avoided.

I have 5 large oak trees on my property and they produce a mountain of leaves in the fall. It takes years for them to decompose into mulch if simply left in a pile. So after reading about leaf shredders I purchased an 8 amp Flowtron shredder and used it the fall of 2008 and for part of the fall of 2009 when the motor eventually burned out. I then purchased a 13 amp Worx shredder and have been using that since. Here are my observations about both models that may help you decide which to buy.

Both shredders are basically inverted string trimmers with a funnel on top that directs the leaves through the spinning line. With both models you get nicely shredded leaves that turn into good dark mulch when left in a pile for about 6 months. It is a pleasure to be able to reduce a mountain of leaves into a manageable pile of mulch, saving the effort of bagging fall leaves for trash pick up and then buying mulch in the spring. Dry leaves shred faster, but they produce a lot of dust. Damp leaves produce very little dust and go into the mulch pile with some moisture which helps with composting. I prefer using the shredder after a light rain. The Flowtron fits well over a big plastic trash can which is slightly better for managing the shredded leaves. I use a tarp under the Worx which is fine, but I liked the trash can method slightly better. The Flowtron has some features that the Worx does not have, like selecting course to fine shredding, and adjusting the tilt of the bucket. I didn't really use these features and don't miss them on the Worx.

The downside is that these shredders require frequent line changes. The lines snap when they contact anything thicker than a pencil lead and to keep production up I find myself replacing them about every 5 or 10 minutes.

This is my first experience with a leaf shredder other than my mulching mower. I filled a large plastic contractor bag in it's first use. It does shred about a 9:1 ratio. And I used the mulched leaves for a landscaped area.

The motor seems very strong and the weed whip material seems to hold up well. And it's simple to assemble, move around and store. Fairly light weight too.

My plastic bag didn't allow air circulation and the leaves were dry, causing a LOT of leaf dust to blow out the top. Mostly on me. I may try a different bag or no bag next time and that may resolve that proble. BUT wear a dust mask. And the unit needs to be on flat ground as it's a bit tippy on its legs.

It's simple to operate, put it on the lawn, rake or leaf blow the leaves round the mulcher, and start loading them in. It has a very large top and lots of leaves can be dropped in at one time. I wish I had tried one of these jobbos before. It's a real time saver and landfill reducer. Nine bags into one mulched bag! Makes me feel Green.
