Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this come with a battery?

    No, this model does not include a battery. It is an electric tool.

  • How heavy is the hedge trimmer?

    The Worx 24” 4.5 Amp Hedge Trimmer weighs 6.6 lbs which is considerably less than traditional gas-powered trimmers. Designed with your comfort in mind, the ergonomic design ensures weight is evenly distributed between the front and rear handles to make trimming comfortable and easy-to-manage for anyone. Worx has taken comfort and ergonomics to a new extreme. The rotating head turns the dual-action blade 180 degrees so you can trim the sides of your hedges without changing your grip or posture.

  • What is the cutting capacity?

    The WG217 4.5 Amp hedge trimmer has a cutting capacity of 3/4” thick branches and a blade length of 24”.

  • Does it come pre-assembled?

    Yes! The 24” 4.5 Amp Hedge trimmer comes fully assembled and ready to work.

  • Is this an electric or battery-operated hedge trimmer?

    The WG217 is an electric hedge trimmer powered by a 4.5 Amp motor.

  • What kind of extension cord should I use with this tool?

    When choosing the right extension cord for your tool, there are a few factors to consider. For outdoor tools, be sure to use an extension cord rated for outdoor use. Look at the amperage rating of the tool and determine the length of the cord you’ll need for your yard. Using the chart in the owner’s manual, determine what gauge the cord should be. We recommend using cords no more than 100ft. Avoid connecting multiple extension cords together, instead use one cord of appropriate length to reach your workspace from the nearest outlet.

  • 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 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 24” 4.5 Amp Hedge Trimmer?

    Always wear the proper safety gear and maintain a clean, safe workspace. For more information, please check out the owner’s manual.

  • What is the guarantee/warranty?

    If you decide the Worx 24” 4.5 Amp 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 hedge trimmer? Register now!

    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? Many replacement parts are available online under Accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 24: hedge Trimmer I bought this hedge trimmer to replace my B&D after many years of use, this is absolutly the best trimmer I've ever owned, This adds to my collection of WORX Tools along with a 18" chain saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best yet I continue to amaze myself at how good of a shopper I am. I added another Worx tool to my garage and was truly impressed. I have tried many other trimmers but this one was fantastic. I am glad I bought the one with the rotating head as it makes it easier for trimming the large hedge along my property. I was surprised at the power making it possible to cut thicker branches. It appears to be well balance. I spent money for the right tool but saved hiring someone to do it. Already got my money's worth. This is a first rate trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You have to use this rotating head The Worx 24" hedger makes doing the hedges simple, it makes you want to find other things to cut because it's not only easy but fun. Set up You take it out of the box and your done there is no set up. This tool straight out of the box is ready to go just plug it in and get down to business. Use One of my favorite features of this hedger is the rotating blade. So instead of twisting your arms to change positions when doing side cuts. You simply unlock the blade turn and start your cuts. So if you're doing side cuts you can just breeze right through them with the same arm position as top cuts. It cuts limbs up to 3/4 inches with ease, doesn't even slow down to cut multiple branches of the same diameter. That long 24" blade shortens your cutting time down tremendously. Overall If you have hedges, small shrubs or bushes this is the tool for you. It's light and versatile with the rotating head you will not regret using this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In line motor is excellent This hedge trimmer is excellent. With the in line motor and rotating blade it is very easy to use and the long blade makes short work of trimming the bushes. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome! Taking it out of the box you can see and feel its quality - you have to think "this is one heck of a trimmer!" - A 180 degree adjustable cutter bar with a 24 inch reach able to cut 3/4 branches! Putting it to use the trimmer quickly sliced through everything I tried it on without hesitation. Thanks to the larger 3/4" spacing on the cutter bar I found it also very quickly and neatly cut smaller leafy material that would be pushed out of the way by trimmers with a lower cutting capacity. Using the swiveling cutter head (moves 90 degrees either way) allowed me to trim the sides of the hedges with a lot less effort. With the 24" bar I was able to reach areas where previously I had to use a stepladder to reach. A word of caution though, it does not care what it cuts and I have first hand experience that it will quickly and easily cut the power cord.... One thing I would like to see on it would be maybe extending the bar by an inch and putting a hole in the end of it so it could more easily be hung up. If you are looking for a quality built corded hedge trimmer I would certainly recommend this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile Very happy with the product. Like the rotating blade feature. Trimmed overgrown bushes no problem. Maybe a little heavier than I’d like, but overall great purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would like to test drive your products. I love your jawsaw and other products, it would be great if I could test drive all of your products for myself to see if it claims are true. If I was not disabled, I probably could buy all your products myself. Thank You.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Design The overall weight of the trimmer is greater than the WG209. What makes it worse is the weight is all frontloaded in front of the handle so it is extremely unbalanced. It makes it difficult to use with one hand. The WG409 was a much better design.
