WORX Cordless Hedge Trimmer Review

You have a choice of 5 Worx cordless hedge trimmers available at the time of writing and they are as follows:

They do have a broad range of cordless hand tools right across the industry from cordless lawn mowers to circular saws and leaf blowers and even cordless pressure cleaner called hydroshot.

They are working on a game-changing revolution if they can pull it off and that is a thing their calling share power, more about that soon.

Battery Volts

Worx has three size battery volts available. 20v, 40v and their big bertha 56v system.

The WG291 56V 24″ trimmer is a stand-alone unit where you are buying the complete package, battery, charger, and the skin.

On the other hand, these WORX Cordless Hedge Trimmer as well

  • WG252.9 20V Power Share Pole Hedge Trimmer 20”
  • WG261 20V Power Share 22-Inch Cordless Hedge Trimmer.
  • WG284 40V Power Share Cordless 24″ Hedge Trimmer
  • WG255.1 20V PowerShare 20″ Cordless Electric Hedge Trimmer

all use the same battery even the 40v, yes.

Remember before saying about new technology, a game-changer to the battery cordless industry.

Power Share

Well, you can now use any 20v battery across all the range of cordless tools.

Take the WG284 40V Power Share Cordless 24″ Hedge Trimmer for instance. Now you can use two(2) 20v batteries and makes up the 40v to run it.

And to me, that is going to save a ton over time from needing to buy new more bigger, powerful toys.

Interchangeable to all of the battery tools from their pressure washer to Worx cordless lawn mowers.

Blade Length

You have a choice 20″, 22″ and 24″ blades which are all dual-action blades and stamp hardened and made from steel.

The standard blade width is set to around 3/4″ making it plenty universal for most hedges, thicker twigs, and branches.


Charging your WORX Cordless Hedge Trimmer only takes an hour in most times and using the latest Lithium-ion technology. As I said, this is where they leave others behind in the competition by using power share technology able to use the same battery across their entire cordless hand tools selection regardless of 20 or 40v.

Other Features

The clear handguard is pretty good idea to, giving you a clear view all the time and the full wrap-around handle makes using on the side or awkward positions a breeze.

The rotation cutting head is another handy feature that other brands should take note. With just a push of the button, you can rotate the body 90 degrees making it more comfortable when doing those long vertical hedges.


  • One battery does all cordless tools across the entire range.
  • Rotating cutting head
  • Dual-action cutting blades
  • Has ergonomic grips and full wrap handle


  • Dual battery can make it slightly heavier over other brands.
  • The 56v is over 15 pounds


The Worx range of cordless trimmers is a great tool for the home gardener. The universal battery interchange is one of the best inventions I’ve seen for quite some time in the cordless tool sector.

You will agree that being able to have just the one size battery for all your cordless tools be a nice welcome.

The company has set itself apart by making use of the batteries across its range and not limiting it to just a few.

As for durability and workmanship, looking at other customer reviews and opinions on Amazon.com across their fleet of hedge trimmers.

Worx has some pretty good stats there, with an average of 4.5 stars out of 5 stars. What lets them down to be 4.7  average is the elephant. The WG291 56V 24″ trimmer.

Overall you won’t be disappointed with the quality of these hedges and certainly worth a look at. Of course, we can say what the rest of the tool range is like but if this is anything to go by they be worth looking at too.
