Frequently Asked Questions

How heavy is the hedge trimmer?

The Worx 40V Cordless 20” hedge trimmer only weighs 5.8 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 40V hedge trimmer has a cutting capacity of 3/4” 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 40 Volt Max Lithium battery charge?

Each 40 Volt Max Lithium Battery has double the runtime of the 20V (1.5Ah) Worx battery. That’s enough working time per charge to keep the greenery on the average 1/2 acre lawn looking sharp. And with a cutting capacity of up to 3/4” diameter and a 20” blade length, you’ll tackle it in less time than you ever 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?

Worx lithium batteries are surprisingly powerful for their compact size. Our 40V Max lithium batteries have double the power of our 20V (1.5Ah) batteries. If we trust our 20V batteries to power our professional cordless drills through concrete and large timbers, you can believe the 40V battery included with the hedge trimmer will easily give your bushes, shrubs and other greenery the professionally manicured look you want.

Is the battery larger than previous models?

The Worx 40V 20” Cordless hedge trimmer features our highest capacity battery to date and is slightly larger than previous models. The 40 Volt Max Lithium Battery included with the Worx 20” Cordless Hedge Trimmer has double the run time of the 20V (1.5Ah) Worx battery and can hold twice the amount of energy as previous models.

What is the horsepower rating of Worx lithium tools?

Battery powered DC motors are not rated for horsepower as output power is only measured with gas or induction AC (corded) motors. Worx lithium powered products were designed with sufficient power to get the job done quickly & easily.

How long does it take to charge the 40 Volt Max battery?

It takes about 8 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 40 Volt Max Lithium batteries interchangeable with the either the 20 Volt or 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 40V Max Lithium battery with any 40V Worx tool, but save your 20V batteries for your 20V tools and 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 40V 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 40V 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).

Would this be a good choice to trim black berry bushes?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cordless Hedge Trimmer!! I live in the Low Country of South Carolina. The weather has been nice here in January. I was anxious to try out this new cordless Hedge Trimmer that I purchased last month. It did not disappoint me. I cut fast and smooth. I was impressed with the 40V battery too. The charge kept this Trimmer going. I was able to complete all the hedges around my house and there were quite a few. The even cut and and light handling made it a great work experience. I love this Trimmer and highly recommend it. Worx has never disappointed me on their products. I have been a devoted customer for years. Keep up the the great WORX !!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pair, trimmer and blower Bought this hedge trimmer with the 40 volt blower. Makes a great pair, with two batteries. I did have a plug in trimmer and 3 extension cords that ended up being 6 after cutting in half. This ends my cuttin cords. Wow the blade reaches all the way across my bushes also. Easy to level the hedge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 40V Cordless 20" Hedge Trimmer I just recieved my Hedge Trimmer a few days ago. Then quicker than you can say "I just unpacked my hedge trimmer, I get a request to give a review! Well I live in the Northwest (Washington state) and it is the rainey season. In fact it rains about every other day! But I can say I have several WORX tools, a lawn trimmer- weed eater, and a leaf blower, and I could not be happier. Thus I have the highest expectation for my newly purchased Hedge Trimmer. So why did I purchase this 40V 20" Hedge Trimmer now? Simply because it was on SALE around at this time (Christmas).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 40V Hedge Trimmer I bought the trimmers in the past thirty days. They are superb as advertised. Lightweight, very balanced compared to my old electric clippers, easy to handle and extremely maneuverable. No gas, oil or fumes if gas powered, no extension cord if electric but a very good battery life, I completed about a 35 ft hedge with battery life to spare. Rated for 3/4" cut but exceeded that on occasions. Enjoyable to use. thank you, wish I had taken before and after photo but did not, next effort I will try to remember. 5/5 perfect rating

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This is the best Hedge Trimmer I ever owned. It is very easy to operate, does a very efficient job. The 40 volt battery provides plenty of power, I like the two hands on operating feature as well. Overall a great product with no complaints. Highly Recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freedom of Movement! I was so tired of having my power cord pull out of my old trimmer. I bought this one because it used the same 40v battery pack as my WORX string trimmer, which I really like both as a trimmer and edger. The hedge trimmer is just as capable as my old trimmer but much easier to go over the hedge with. The 40 volt batt is plenty powerful and lasts for the duration of most of my trimmer chores; but popping in the other batter is quick and easy. The li ion batters charge quickly and hold their charge between uses.Just be careful not to drop them as is the case with all Li Ion batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for older people I have several worx yard tools and will buy more in the spring. I needed the trimmer as I clean up for the fall. It is great. I just trimmed some bushes with fairly large stems I was unsure it could handle. The trimmer had no problem bringing the large and small twigs down. It is light enough for me to handle at 5'2", 73 years old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to use battery power tools! I just used my hedge trimmer last week for the first time. It is great! Light enough for me to handle - I am 75 years young and still enjoy doing my own yard. Got a friend to put on the handle and then I was off to trimming. Love using your battery power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cordless Hedge Trimmer I recently purchased the 40V Cordless 20" Hedge Trimmer and I love it. I had been using hedge shears for the last 7 years but decided it was time to switch. I have been using Worx lawn tools for several years now and love the quality of the products so when it came time for a cordless trimmer Worx was the obvious choice. I have only used the trimmer once so far but it performs wonderfully and is lightweight and easy to handle. I would recommend this trimmer to anyone looking to go cordless.
