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.

Where can I get replacement parts?

Are the batteries interchangeable with other tools?

Asked by: Darlenewsmith
Thank you for your question. The batteries are interchangeable within the same voltages. The 20V batteries are compatible with the 20V tools, the 40V batteries are compatible with the 40V tools, and the same thing goes for our 56V tools.

40V Cordless 20" Hedge Trimmer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from plenty of power to complete its task i bought this to get rid of cutting the cord.
Date published: 2018-05-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent battery life Did everything I needed and had enough juice to do it again possibly twice. I have a hedge on the edge of my yard that was getting out of hand. the hand sheers were taking more time than I could afford. I selected the WG280 because of the price, the availability and the variety of tools the 40v system offers. I was not disappointed. I expected to go through multiple batteries. I will probably get the quick charger when I get my next Worx tool but if I can edge the whole yard on one charge I wont need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This was also bought for my wife. Her electric Fiskars finally died after 25 years. This battery powered is very user friendly but the best part is being so light weight even with the long blade. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I brought this product to replace the unreliable troybilt gas trimmer. It works like a champ. I am more than pleased with its results.
