The Worx WG788 cordless mower takes the chore out of mowing. The WG788 is completely cord-free, relying on a removable, rechargeable 36-volt battery and a simple, intuitive ignition system to keep your lawn in tiptop shape. Just charge up the battery, push the key, and pull the lever. Within seconds, you'll be strolling behind your mower sweat-free. No hassling with pull starts, worrying about mixtures, or trudging to the gas station to refill the gas can.
The WG788 is equipped with patented IntelliCut technology, which ensures that power is there when you need it. No more bogging down in tough conditions when mowing tall grass or mulching leaves. Simply set the dial to Power when cutting through the tough stuff, and switch the dial to Quiet when mowing a side lawn next to your neighbor's house. Now you can mow the lawn at almost any time of day without irritating the neighbors or disturbing your children's naps, yet still have access to a powerful chopping mower when facing high weeds.
Operation and Performance
The Worx WG788 is ideal for large yards with grass that varies in height and thickness, with a battery that runs for up to one hour or 18,500 square feet per charge (in Quiet mode). If your lot is about the size of six tennis courts, this is the mower for you. The mower also includes several handy cordless functions, such as an easy-to-read power level indicator that tells you when it needs charging. And thanks to the three-in-one grass handling--which mulches, discharges grass to the side, or bags grass--you can easily mulch your lawn to encourage a healthier surface or bag the grass for composting or disposal.
The Worx Advantage
The WG788 offers a number of advantages over traditional lawnmowers. Unlike gas mowers, you won't throw out your arm starting the WG788 or get your hands dirty while checking the oil. Plus, the mower is quieter than gas mowers and emissions-free. In contrast to traditional electric mowers, users won't have to uncoil and step over an extension cord while mowing the front lawn. And the WG788 is far more efficient and easier to use than push mowers, which often require several passes to mow a tough patch of grass.
Ready, Set, Mow
Mowing the lawn is no longer a chore with the WG788. In addition to the easy-on switch, the mower includes a mulching blade designed to chop up your clippings even better than standard blades. To help you deal with seasonal grasses, the mower offers six height positions, so your lawn will look like you hired a pro. And the convenient detachable handle system makes it a cinch to remove the battery and charge it in a separate location. The handlebar also collapses for storage in tight spaces. With the Worx WG788, it's easier, quieter, and cleaner than ever to mow the lawn.

I found an advertising video showing a lady pushing the mower along and turning a knob on the handle to make it louder and work harder on the tall grass. (this may have been the WG789 in retrospect)
Unfortunately the knob isn't on the handle, rather the knob is down on the mower deck in front of the battery. This seems like it would make it a much less usefull feature as you have to stop and lean over and adjust it, I guess this is visible in the bove picture but there are no labels or decals to highlight it.
UPDATE: This is really not inconvenient after all. It's only when changing to areas where it may be longer or wetter that you need the power feature and it's not that inconvenient to be on the deck.
The only other complaint is that the quick adjust for the handle works great when pushing the handle down, however if it is set in the high position (three settings available) and you lift up on the handle to move the rear wheels it can pop out and fold forward like it would for storage. This doesn't seem to be a problem in the low and medium setting. I can likely fix this myself and the ergonomics are very good. UPDATE: The initial reaction of the handle, to pop out when lifted on in high, went away after just fifteen minutes of use in the high position.
The mower is very easy to push and the larger rear wheels are nice for turning. I only tried the mower out in my lawn (raining out and wet) shortly and the lawn wasn't that tall. The cut is good and the mower is quiet, I didn't notice a lot of difference between "quiet" and "power" settings, but the grass wasn't very tall and I wasn't trying to cut it very short. UPDATE: the difference is there but most evident in tall wet grass.
I have about a .9 Acre yard and got this to do edges, areas where I couldn't get to with a mower and to use in a pinch. I will mow my lawn Saturday to determine how many square feet the battery and mower are actually good for, I will also post pictures.
UPDATE: June 4, pm
Jut got home to it having been a nice day and the lawn isn't too wet, damp for sure, but not too tall, so I took her out for a spin. Battery had been used* (*out of box) slightly last night and charged up fully overnight. I checked the battery very religiously and regularly. It was about 35-40 minutes when it went from 3 lights to 2, then about 35-40 more till it went from 2 lights to one. I ended doing about 110' stripes and checking the battery at the end of every run and it had Just dropped to 1 light, after about 2 minutes of not mowing it went back up to 2 lights, and it didn't noticably slow down, but I stopped before figuring I should have read the manual :P and don't want to mess up the SLA battery.
The charger does seem to be a decent piece of kit too.
I Cut the grass on the medium setting ~2-3.5", I am happy with how high this deck will go it seems like it is almost 6" which is nice for organic lawns as tall grass doesn't get as many weeds. Also the adjustment is easy and feels solid. I was cutting mostly from 2-4" of grass off so I wasn't making a big cut but I did a bunch of edges and clumps where I was cutting 6-12" of grass down and it ate right through without any hesitation!!!
I think it will do the whole yard when it's dry in the summer!!! Pushing this will keep me active, it is a bit cumbersome to turn, just a bit heavy mostly
The bagger seemed to work very well, although I only did a small 20'x60' "lawn" with the bagger, then mulched another 20'x60' more "lawn" and noted that I couldn't tell the difference between the bagged and mulched am happy. I still think the side discharge is the most efficient way to process the grass, so I proceeded to side discharge the rest of the yard. I think the side discharge seems to save energy. I mowed about 85% of the grass in my lot, including a lot of 12-16" tall clumps where the rider I've been using has been missing. I mowed back and forth and in as even of a grid as I could, switching between power and quiet as needed, this feature seems to really work and can extend mowing time, also not really that inconvenient located you only switch between runs so it works great. My lot is ~38,000 sq ft but I figured out that I have about ~22,000 sq ft grass/lawn, and have under 4000 left,
I believe that this mower actually just mowed a bit over 18,000 sq ft, on it's maiden voyage, NICE!!
It's an absolute delight when a product, not only meets expectations but, exceeds them!!
Edit: 5/20/2011 one year later, the mower still is awesome, still mows a .88 acre lot on a charge, (assuming the grass isn't too tall) and will really eat through tall wet grass. Battery is holding up very well.
A few things to mention,
1)the switch in the handle is not well sealed and the handle got weather over the winter I had to take it apart and lube it for the safety shutoff to work otherwise it would stay on without holding the lever. I took it apart and lubed it and all works well now but I did find that this was shipped with a slightly broken small plastic part in the handle, guess that's what you get for being the one of the first customers.
2) The blades are seemingly unavailable except online. I hit a SIZEABLE hidden rock yesterday and bent my blade, now I am out of commision until a new one can be delivered. I will order two it would be wise to keep a spare sharp anyway as a sharp blade is key to long battery life.
Still Lovin' it!! The wife loves it, and the son can't wait till he's big enough to push it around!!
