WORX WG743 40V PowerShare Lawn Mower Features and Specifications
WORX WG743 40V PowerShare is powered by a pair of WORX 20V PowerShare batteries and is offered as a bare tool (lawn mower only) or as a cordless lawn mower kit featuring lawn mower, two 20V 4.0Ah WORX PowerShare lithium batteries, and 20V PowerShare dual-port lithium battery charger.
Since these batteries can be used to power other WORX 20V/40V PowerShare tools, a cordless lawn mower kit is an excellent option - new WORX PowerShare tools can be ordered as bare tools at very acceptable prices.
When the unit arrives, it must be assembled, which can be done rather quickly, just be sure to follow the instructions in the Owner's Guide.
WORX WG743 40V PowerShare features 17-inch (~43.2 cm) wide deck, but the cutting width is actually 16 inches (~40.6 cm) wide.
The deck is not made of steel - it is made of durable plastic, which makes the construction relatively light, around 38.1 pounds (~17.3 kg), making the WORX WG743 40V PowerShare lawn mower very maneuverable and easy to traverse even slopes.
Note: if You plan on mowing the slopes be extra careful - WORX WG743 40V PowerShare is simple to use and maintain cordless lawn mower, but just in case, read the Owner's Guide in order to get accustomed to your new unit, especially regarding moving, safety and maintenance procedures.
WORX WG743 40V PowerShare is a 2-in-1 lawn mower - it can be used for mowing and mulching. Since it lacks the side opening required for side discharge, its plastic deck is even more rigid and durable.
When the WORX WG743 lawn mower is not in use, its handle can be folded and the lawn mower can be stored horizontally, not requiring too much space.
Cutting height is adjustable between 1.5 and 4.0 inches (~3.8 - 10.2 cm) using a single lever.
Additional control includes Eco and Turbo selector, which allows the user to set the desired cutting mode - Eco mode prolongs the runtime and is suitable for dry, not too tall grass, while Turbo mode is suitable for tougher, taller grass.
Note: generally, WORX WG743 40V PowerShare can be used to mow wet grass, but it is not recommended. Wet grass drains the batteries faster, can cause lumps that can even block the blade, etc.
The battery compartment accepts two 20V PowerShare batteries. Be aware that:
- WORX WG743 cordless lawn mower cannot operate using only one battery.
- it is highly recommended to always use fully charged batteries of the same capacity - if one battery is drained and another one still has some charge left, the unit will NOT operate.
- two 20V 4.0Ah batteries feature a nominal voltage of 18V and a maximum voltage of 20V and when connected in series, they have a nominal voltage of 36V. Also, both batteries are able to store ~144 Wh of energy combined.
When two 20V 4.0Ah batteries are fully charged, WORX WG743 can operate for 40-45 minutes in Eco mode constantly. However, taller and tougher grass shortens the runtime, especially if they require the user to switch to Turbo mode.
WORX WG743 40V PowerShare cordless lawn mower kit includes 2 (two) 20V 4.0Ah batteries and a dual-port battery charger which is able to fully charge both batteries in ~2 hours and only one battery in ~1 hour.
During the operation, the user can check the remaining charge via a simple touch indicator.
The grass bag features a capacity of 1.1 bushels (~10 gallons, ~38 liters) and the handle which allows the user to easily carry even the full bag and dump it where required.
Another good feature of the bag is a full-bag sensor that signals the user when it is time to empty the grass bag.
WORX WG743 40V PowerShare comes with a 5-year limited warranty.
