WORX 20 Volt Trimmer – Review of the WG255 Hedge Trimmer

Worx 20 Volt Trimmer

WORX WG255 20-Inch 20-Volt MAX Lithium Cordless Hedge Trimmer


The WORX WG255 hedge trimmer review video below is just a quick glimpse of what the trimmer looks like. I think that they could have done a bit better and explained  a bit more about their WORX 20 volt trimmer.

More written review information and further product details follow after the short video.


Power Type – Gas or Electric?


Cordless Or Corded?

Cordless – the worx 20 volt trimmer uses the max lithium battery.

Cutting Capability?

The max lithium gives added power as well as run time. They tell us that it is also a lighter and more compact version of Lithium battery. Growth of 9/16 of an inch can be tackled comfortably with the WORX WG255.

Some might find the see through hand guard useful especially if they’re starting to use a powered trimmer for the first time. It might let them see better what they are actually cutting, although a more natural feel for trimming will happen over time.

Blade Length?

20 inches, made of hardened steel.

Suitable for Cutting Vertically?

There is a wrap round D shaped front handle but no rotating handle at the rear.

Dual Action Blades?

YES -gives reduction in vibration.

The aluminum blade cover is rust-proof and easy to clean. The cordless Max Lithium innovation means no more tangled cords while hedging.

Any Accessories?

YES – 20 volt Max Lithium battery and a rustproof protective blade cover made of aluminum


YES – Reviews are very good for the WORX 20 volt trimmer from the eight product purchasers so far. Their average rating gives this cordless hedge trimmer 4.6 from 5 stars and leaving glowing comments.

comments like, finding it light to work with as well as being easy to manipulate.

Pros – The 20 volt battery can be used with other Worx yard tools such as their blower and grass trimmer that also use their 20 volt Lithium battery.

The fact that it is cordless and has a long lasting battery.

Light to easy to use and has a wall mounted storage unit.

Cons – Doesn’t charge the battery on other battery sized chargers such as the Worx 18 volt charger.

Not as quick a charger as the 18 volt. (Could be because the 20 volt is the Max Lithium battery and holds a bigger charge)
