Frequently Asked Questions

Does this come with a battery and charger?

No, this model does not include a battery or charger. This is an electric tool.

How much does the 13 Amp Leaf Mulcher weigh?

The Worx Leaf Mulcher weighs 20 pounds. It’s study and stable when set up, yet still light enough to make it easily portable.

Does the Leaf Mulcher come pre-assembled?

Since the Worx 13 Amp Leaf Mulcher is designed for easy and compact storage when not in use, it’s shipped to you in the same configuration. Assembling the Leaf Mulcher is quick, easy and requires no tools!

How hard is it to assemble the Worx Leaf Mulcher? What kind of tools will I need?

Assembling the Leaf Mulcher will only take a couple of minutes and will not require any tools! Remove the mulcher from the box and locate the stand. Insert the legs into the stand. Make sure the release button is aligned and locks into position. Place the stand on stable ground. Attach the collection bag of your choice (not included). For plastic, roll the opening of the bag over the top of the stand. For paper leaf collection bags (12-16” diameter), use the included support ring. Place the orange motor housing on the stand. Fit the black funnel onto the motor housing and lock the clamps to secure it. Place the funnel cover on top, align the white dots on each piece and lock the tabs to secure the cover in place. Before plugging it in, add the cutting lines by feeding it through the holes on the spinner head and align the ends so they are even. Push each end through the corresponding ferrule and repeat for the other side. Plug in your Leaf Mulcher and you’re ready to go!

Can I leave the Worx Leaf Mulcher outside all season?

We don’t recommend storing your Leaf Mulcher outside. It’s designed to quickly and easily disassemble for compact storage.

How do I disassemble the Leaf Mulcher for storage?

Turn off your Worx 13 Amp Leaf Mulcher and unplug it. Separate the individual pieces and release security latches. Remove the motor housing from the funnel. Detach the legs from the stand by pushing the locking buttons and pulling to release. Turn the stand upside down. Put the funnel into the stand. Fit the motor housing into the funnel. Place the funnel cover on top of the motor. The legs will fit into the notches in the funnel cover. That’s it! You’re ready to store your Leaf Mulcher until it’s time to use it again.

The Worx 13 Amp Leaf Mulcher uses cutting line. Can I replace it with metal blades?

Your mulcher is designed to work with cutting line and will not accommodate any type of metal blades.

How do I change the cutting line?

Before proceeding, turn off and unplug your Leaf Mulcher for safety. Remove the mulcher funnel and funnel cover. Cut the old lines and remove them from the spinner head. Thread one piece of line through one set of feed holes on top of the spinner head. Make sure the ends of the line are even. Thread both ends of the line through the corresponding ferrule. Repeat for the other side. The built-in line cutter will make sure that your lines are always the right length.

The manual says I need to clean the air filter. How do I clean the air filter?

While there are several steps to clean the air filter, it will only take a few minutes. Unplug the Leaf Mulcher. Once it is unplugged, detach the funnel from the motor housing. Flip the motor housing so the cutting head faces the ground. Remove the six screws from the sides of the motor cover. They are located on the outside edges of the motor cover. The filter is located flush against the power switch. It can be removed and cleaned. When replacing the motor casing, squeeze the casing inward slightly to allow the casing to lock back in place. Reinsert the six screws and tighten. Flip the motor housing over and reattach the funnel.

What kind of extension cord should I use with my Worx Leaf Mulcher?

The right extension cord will ensure you get the performance you expect and will extend the life of your blower. Look for an extension cord rated for Outdoor Use and make sure the gauge of the cord is appropriate for the length you’re using. The WG530 is a 120V, 13 Amp tool, so check for gauge and length on the grid here, or in your manual. Your local hardware or garden supply store will be happy to help you select the right cord to meet your needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!!!! I bought one for myself and then purchased another for a friend as a Christmas gift. Instead of bagging 12 bags of leaves....I had 2 bags of nice, fine mulch for my garden. So easy....for those of us that don't like the task of bagging leaves......This is the way to go. Thank you, WORX for another great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So environmentally friendly! This mulcher is so easy to use, set up, and store. I mulched 29 bags of leaves last fall...and then come spring used the mulched leaves in my foundation plantings, perennial garden, and vegetable garden to keep the weeds at bay and to look so "natural"...not like the red mulch everyone buys!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I turned it into a Monster! I turned it into a Monster!I need something that would fill 55 gallon bags on my bag holder. After slight modification, I created a monster leaf shredder. I also replaced the cutter line with square 0.095 line that is much stronger. The line that comes with it and you buy from Worx measures 0.070 inches. Very weak. Make sure to wear a dust mask and goggles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it There are many trees on this property that leads to many leaves. It makes short work of them and allows me to use them in my garden to help out my clay and rock soil. Can't wait till the leaves fall this fall to make short work of them. I also shredded some bales of straw to use as mulch in my raised beds and containers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great mulcher Purchased this spring to speed up mulching as I also have the WORX blower mulcher. Works great, just wear a mask because of the dust. It will easily mulch leaves, twigs and small branches and saves hours of time. Breaks down easily for compact storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic tool. I bought this three years ago and it's one of my favorite ways to clear my yard of the tons of leaves I get every year. The ONLY change I made was to get heavier trimmer line for gas trimmers, they last a lot longer I got a full reel and have enough for several years, wear ear and and a face shield for added protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I live in NH, on a 1 acre lot, Surrounded by trees I would estimate I accumulate at least 200 bags of leaves a season, And have tried many ways to get rid of them, I saw a review on youtube for the 13 amp Electric Leaf Mulcher and purchased one. I abuse it so badly, Have owned it for 3 years with out any problem, Recently the plastic bolt that holds the cutting head must have come loose and I had not checked it and sheared the bolt after stripping the cutter head, I called Worx 1800 number was able to order a new cutting head for 5.00 and bolt 1.50. shipping was fast, part was easy to replace and I am back mulching. I really love this product and have recommended it to my friends and neighbor's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking for a shredder that works, get Worx For several years I would shop every fall for a shredder to make leaf pickup easier, but could never find one in town, in stock, or those that were had bad reviews. This spring I had to mulch some straw that I had put down for the winter, and thought perfect time to look for a shredder, after looking through all the shredders and reviews I kept coming back to Worx, and I ordered it. It came in in a couple days! Quick to put together (and easy to store the same way), I put it together and in minutes was mulching the straw. Turned 5 bales into enough mulch for all the beds in the back yard. The large opening at the top makes it easy to feed, as opposed to the chipper shredders with their 2 " opening. If the grass was wet it took a little care not to overload it, but once I learned that lesson, it was quite quick. Looking forward to easy leaf work in the fall, and mulching leaves rather than bagging. Great product. Easy to change the line too. No tools, no disassembly, really well designed. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dynamo! This a no-frills, rugged mulching machine. I took an entire mound full of magnolia leaves, pine leaves and oak leaves which stood about four feet high and ground it in to fine, particulate mulch within two hours. Very sturdy and well worth the wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very portable. Simple to operate. This is 2nd one I own. I have lots of trees , thus lots of leaves, thus lots of grinding. Does everything I need it to do.
