Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this come with a battery?

    Yes, this model includes 1 battery.

  • How heavy is the hedge trimmer?

    The Worx 20V Cordless 20” hedge trimmer only weighs 5.3 lbs, and that includes the battery! The ergonomic design you expect from a Worx tool ensures the weight is evenly distributed between the front and rear handles to make trimming comfortable and easy-to-manage for anyone.

  • What is the Worx 20v Cordless hedge trimmer’s cutting capacity?

    The 20V hedge trimmer has a cutting capacity of 9/16” thick branches and a blade length of 20”.

  • Does it come pre-assembled?

    Each hedge trimmer comes with some minor assembly required, which takes 5 minutes or less and only requires a Phillips head screwdriver. Please refer to your manual for specific instructions.

  • How long can you trim on each 20 Volt Max Lithium battery charge?

    Each 20 Volt Max Lithium Battery provides enough working time per charge to keep the greenery on the average 1/4 acre lawn looking sharp. And with a 20” blade length, you’ll tackle it in less time than you thought possible. Actual results may vary on a number of factors including user, density of the greenery and age of the battery.

  • Is the battery going to be powerful enough?

    The lithium battery that powers the WORX Hedge Trimmer is the same battery that we use in our professional cordless drills. They’re powerful to drill through concrete and large timber, so they’re definitely powerful enough to give your hedges, shrubs and other greenery that professionally manicured look you’ve always wanted. Actual results may vary on a number of factors including user, density of the greenery and age of the battery.

  • How long does it take to charge the battery?

    It takes about 5 hours to fully charge the battery.

  • Are lithium batteries interchangeable with the Ni-Cad?

    Our lithium tools and Ni-Cd tools are separate platforms and are not interchangeable. Lithium batteries offer our customers maintenance-free technology without the hassle of managing the memory effect inherent in Ni-Cad batteries.

  • Are the 20 Volt Max Lithium batteries interchangeable with the 32 Volt Max Lithium Batteries?

    While Powershare allows you to share batteries between tools within the same voltage family, batteries should only be used with tools of a corresponding voltage. Use your 20V Max Lithium battery with any 20V Worx tool – even the power tools – but save your 32V battery for your 32V tools.

  • Can I use the tool without the safety guard? I have experience with other hedge trimmers and will be the only one using it.

    The safety guard is designed to protect you from any debris while trimming. Removing the guard will void the tool’s warranty and puts you at risk for injury. Please refer to your owner’s manual for specific safety instructions.

  • My Cordless Hedge Trimmer won’t start when I pull the trigger. What’s wrong?

    Worx takes your safety in mind with each tool we design. To prevent accidentally starting the tool and protect against injury, each cordless hedge trimmer includes a 2-stage trigger. In order to start the trimmer, squeeze both the trigger on the front handle and the trigger in the rear handle. Both triggers must be held down during operation of the tool. If either trigger is released during operation, the hedge trimmer will stop.

  • Are there any precautions I should follow when using the Worx 20V 20” Cordless Hedge Trimmer?

    Carefully review the owner’s manual for all safety information and guidelines for using the Worx GT Revolution. Follow safety precautions while using any power tools – including wearing safety eyewear, gloves, appropriate shoes & clothing, and keeping hair tied back. See the owner’s manual for complete safety instructions and details.

  • What is the guarantee/warranty?

    If you decide the Worx 20V 20” Cordless Hedge Trimmer isn’t the right tool for you, we offer a 30-day Money Back Guarantee from date of receipt (less shipping and handling). Please call our customer service center at 1-866-354-9679 (WORX) and we’ll be happy to assist. View more information here.

    We know your tools are indispensable, so we cover each tool with a 2 Year Limited Consumer Warranty. You can extend your warranty to 3 years by registering online within 30 days of purchase. Already have your Revolution? Register now!

    Worx batteries are covered by a 1 Year Limited Consumer Warranty and are not eligible for warranty extension.

    Parts subject to normal wear and tear are not covered by the tool’s warranty. View more information on our warranty here.

  • Where can I get replacement parts?

    Lose a blade sheath? Need an extra battery or charger? Many replacement parts are available online under Accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts like a knife! I replace this with one from Menards that would not cut even rose branches. Worx did the job completely. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty powerful This cordless hedge trimmer did an excellent job trimming multiple bushes and maintained great power and charge throughout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and versatile Use this hedge trimmer on a steep embankment to trim brush. Used to use a 16" electric hedge trimmer and was always snagging the electrical cord and even sliced it in half on occasion. This trimmer is lightweight, has a large cutting area, and allows me to operate freely. I have other Worx battery powered tools and am equally impressed with their quality and ease of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and efficient! Bought this tool a few weeks ago, so glad I did! Where have you been all my life! No cord! I can tackle floribunda roses and prune blackberries along with shrubs in our yard. Very quiet as well. I own a grass trimmer as well, love it! Recently bought my Dad a grass trimmer, the 40 V for Father’s Day. He can manage this instead of struggling with his gas trimmer. He couldn’t use the old heavy one with his bad back. Advice: don’t leave the batteries in extreme temperatures, they will last a long time if you keep them in the house. I highly recommend Worx ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and powerful I bought the 20inch hedge trimmer for two reasons. The ability to share batteries with my other Worxs tools and I wanted something light weight. I am very pleased an both accounts. It made hedge trimming easy and fun! Thanks Worx for making such great tools!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Add to your 20V collection I was tired of running extension cords and when my daughter asked what I would like for my birthday I said another Worx 20V tool to add to my collection. I said I would like the trimmer. Used it the day it arrived since I had a number of batteries charged. Worked great don't know why I waited so long to get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cut the Hedges. Not the Wires. Goodbye old wired trimmer. Hello to my new WORX wireless hedge trimmer! What used to be a cumbersome chore is now something I can do any day, any time. When a bush needs trimming, it gets trimmed, but without lengths of extension cords, nor am I any longer limited by cord length! The 20v battery lasts through the trimming, though I can share the 20v batteries from my other WORX tools. We've become a WORX family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best hedge trimmer I've ever had! It is so much easier to trim the hedges when you don't have to mess with a long cord. This trimmer is very light weight but strong enough to trim some pretty large branches on a hedge. I am soooo happy with this, I would recommend to to everyone.

Date published: 2018-06-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Garden Tools I Have Ever Used I own at least 20 Worx products and am ordering 2 more today. I purchased my first tool years ago from QVC and now come directly to the Worx site to order my products. I have everything from the 20V Work Light to the 20V Chainsaw. I have reordered several items because I use them for both heavy work and finesse work and don't ever want to be without them. I have used both electric and gas powered tools in the past but as I am getting older I find the weight and danger of these tools and the preparation needed to use them, off-putting. I now just grab a fully charged battery, affix it to my light or tool and off I go to tending to my outside living space. My most recent purchase--the 20V Hedge Trimmer is my second one as I occasionally use it for heavier trimming than it is meant for (I do sometimes get a bit aggressive with my trimming) and I want to always have one on hand. I enjoy having neighbors ask what tools I am using and referring them to the Worx site. I, especially, like the fact that the Work Light is so bright and so handy during power outages and when working in my shed which does not have electricity connected. I really appreciate the fact that I can use the same battery for so many tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight We have a big yard but few bushes in need of trimming. This trimmer is perfect for quick touch ups. Keeping gas fresh for long periods is difficult at best. So light, my wife will use it sometimes, too.
