WORX creates reliable and innovative yard tools, and the WORX GT2 20V MaxLithium (WG160) is a great example of products that not only serve homeowners to their satisfaction, but also are affordable. The WORX GT2 can serve three purposes. Firstly, it is an excellent trimmer with the ability to transition to either an edger or mini-mower.
At the end of this review are six excellent videos showing the outstanding features of the WORX GT2. I believe the videos will communicate the real power and versatility of the WORX GT2.
WORX, as a company, is impressive. Positec, a Chinese company that has taken over North America by storm in recent years, originally owned the brand. They actively compete with established brands such as Black & Decker, winning over consumers with their innovative products with highly competitive prices. Honestly, the success comes from the reliable yard tools that they provide to homeowners. More about WORX is in this Forbes article.
WORX GT2 with Features Galore
The video below showcases features of the mini-mower and how it works. It is perfect for small or tight spaces but might be cumbersome when mowing a large area. Consider one of these if you are looking to mow a large lawn:
- Husqvarna 5521P Mower
- Fiskars StaySharp Reel Mower
- Husqvarna LGT2654 Garden Tractor
- Greenworks 25022 Mower
Mini-Mower in Action
At only 5.7 pounds, the WORX GT2 (WG160) is lightweight, easy to move around, and is battery powered. Being adjustable to your needs makes it the perfect candidate to tackle the challenges of your particular yard. I believe every yard has different obstacles to navigate through and around, and a tool that can adjust to all these different scenarios is a must-have.
The Lithium-ion battery in this tool is approximately 40% lighter than Ni-Cd models, which allows you to work longer and be comfortable the entire time. The battery lasts about 45 minutes.
The WORX GT2 WG160 ensures that you do not accidentally cut where you did not intend while trimming like flowers and garden furniture through a fully adjustable spacer guard.
You can tilt the head a full 90 degrees that allows you to trim those difficult-to-reach places easily. It has supportive wheels and a simplified design that most people can use easily.
The height of the WORX GT 2.0 is adjustable for comfort with seven different locking height adjustments.
The Black & Decker LST136W is a more powerful trimmer but has fewer features than other leading brands. Powered by a 40V Lithium-ion battery, it converts to an edger but not a mini-mower.
Includes: 20-volt battery, spool, and line, Trimmer/ Edger/ Mini-Mower.
- Easily convertible from a trimmer to an edger or mini-mower.

WORX GT2 Extras
You should order an extra 20V battery (WA3525) if you intend to work longer than 45 minutes. This is particularly important because, unfortunately, if you run out of battery power, you have to wait 3 hours for a recharge. Two batteries mean double the time (2 x 45min), allowing you to get all your work done without having to stop.
You will need an extra spool line for the WORX GT 2.0. It is cheap, as well!
