Frequently Asked Questions

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 Lithium GT 2.0 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 40 Volt Max 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?

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 20V 20” Cordless Hedge Trimmer isn’t right 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. For more information, click 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 trimmer? 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.

Where can I get replacement parts?

Lose a blade sheath? Need an extra battery or charger? Many replacement parts are available on our website under Accessories, or by contacting our customer service center at 1-866-354-9679 (Worx).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight I bought this trimmer 3 weeks ago and I have shaped and trimmed everything in my yard that was in need. My husband use to keep everything trimmed and he did it by hand. He has passed away and my bushes and flowers were out of hand. I tried to clip with clippers but that was not a option for me. I saw this trimmer on TV and decided this is what I need. Battery last a long time and it is so light weight but it really does the job. love your products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great products Everything I have bought has been great. I even bought a couple products for my son when he got a house. My daughter just bought a house so I have to get something for her. I saw a neighbor using a trimmer while walking my dog and he was raving about it also. Eventually I would like to have the whole line of products. Keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing But THE BEST !! This is the fourth tool that I have had the pleasure of owning from Worx. It started with a gift of the Saw. Then I ordered the battery pack; the wonderful and versatile 8 in 1 Aerocart; finally the Hedge Trimmer. With the interchangeable batteries and the various tools, I can multi-task to my hearts delight. I can't wait to get more tools for my arsenal. I most heartily recommend the tools and even more than that the customer service and follow up. They all have been fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No extension cord YAY! What a relief to be able to pick up the Hedge Trimmer put the battery in place and then just walk to all the places that need trimming without having to drag a long extension cord around and not worrying about tripping over or cutting it. Surprising power for trimming with only the 20 volt battery and much easier to manipulate without the cord. Thank you it is heaven sent. Pal1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use The cordless hedge trimmer has been great. So easy to use. I love not worrying about a cord. And that the 20 v battery is also compatible with my Worx blower - which is my favorite purchase. I use it almost daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very lightweight and easy to use. Really love this unit. Very light, and easy to get up to higher branches. Wish it worked just a tad faster, but seems powerful enough for our use. I got around a full hour of constant use out of one battery. Love Worx tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very handy The cordless hedge trimmer makes it easy to get to the hard to reach areas of the hedges around my house. The end result is much better than with a corded trimmer that limits your mobility

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I need I have used this for about a month now and am pleasantly surprised. I help some of the neighbors with lawns, shrubbery, etc. I can get one entire home and most of a second done on one battery charge. I already own a WORX trimmer and blower so now I have three tools, three batteries and two chargers for around $150 with my military discount. I also have gas powered tools but find myself reaching for my WORX tools more and more just for the convenience.

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 Great trimmer I bought this a few weeks back and absolutely love it. It's light weight for me to carry but does a heavy weight job.

Asked by: chuckref

Will the trimmer get dual after a lot of use?  How would you sharpen it ?

Asked by: Debbie9707
The easy answer is Yes. You can extend the life by more frequent trimming and cleaning your blade of sap with WD-40 or similar cleaner. It also helps to clip the larger stems on your hedges with heavy duty bypass pruners once a year as recommended by professional landscapers. Don't worry if you leave a hole in the hedge...the new growth will fill that in a few months or the following spring.

Can a 32v battery be used on this 20v trimmer?

Asked by: Tam L
Thank you for your question. The versatile family of Worx PowerShare tools lets you tackle every job with our 20V Max lithium battery. This means that if you own any 20V battery from another Worx tool, it is interchangeable should you purchase a new Worx tool that is 20V as well. The same goes for our 40V and 56V tools. As long as the tools are of the same voltage you can interchange the battery between all of the tools. Thank you for choosing Worx!
