WORX knows how to create innovative yard tools and the WORX GT2 20V MaxLithium (WG160)is a magnificent example of how to make products that serve homeowners without breaking the bank. The WORX GT2 is essentially 3 yard tools in 1. First and foremost it’s an excellent trimmer that can easily transition to either an edger or mini-mower.
At the end of this review you’ll find 6 excellent videos that show off all the features of the WORX GT2. To be honest, I would suggest you skip directly to the videos because there’s nothing that I can write that will communicate the true power and versatility of the WORX GT2. Seeing is believing.
20V MaxLithium WORX GT 2.0
I have to be honest, I’m really impressed with WORX as a company. The WORX brand is owned by Positec, a Chinese company that has been taking North America by storm by directly competing with established brands such as Black & Decker. They’re winning over consumers with their highly competitive prices and innovative products that provide homeowners with yard tools that reliable and work as promised. It’s quite simple why they’re succesful. Read more about WORXS in this Forbes article.
WORX GT2 with Features Galore
If you’re not sure how the mini-mower feature works then just watch this video (below) and you’ll understand. It’s perfect for small areas or tight spaces but it’s not suitable to mow large areas with. If you truly need a lawn mower then consider one of these:
- Greenworks 25022 Mower
- Husqvarna 5521P Mower
- Fiskars StaySharp Reel Mower (Quiet, non-polluting)
- Husqvarna LGT2654 Garden Tractor (for large lawns)
Mini-Mower in Action
The WORX GT2 (WG160) is lightweight at only 5.7 lbs, easy to maneuver and battery powered. Completely adjustable to your needs, and to the challenges of your particular yard. Let’s face it, everyone has different obstacles to navigate through and around so it makes perfect sense to have a tool that you can adjust to your changing needs.
Because it uses a Lithium-ion battery is approximately 40% lighter than Ni-Cd models, allowing you to work longer and be comfortable while working with the WORX GT 2.0. The battery will last you approximately 45 minutes.
The WORX GT2 WG160 has a fully adjustable spacer guard to protect your flowers, plants, and garden furniture from damage while trimming, ensuring that you’ll never accidentally cut where you didn’t intend to.
The head tilts a full 90 degrees, to let you quickly and easily trim in those difficult-to-reach places, fully supported by wheels. It’s designed so anybody can use it.
Unlike most trimmers, the WORX GT 2.0 is height adjustable, giving you a comfortable trim every time. It has 7 different locking height adjustments.
If you want a more powerful trimmer with fewer features then you might want to look at the Black & Decker LST136W which is powered by a 40V Lithium-ion battery. It also converts to an edger but not a mini-mower.

WORX GT2 Extras
I recommend buying an extra 20V battery (WA3525) if you want to work for longer than 45 minutes. I always recommend homeowners buy an extra battery because unfortunately, if you run out of battery you have to wait 3 hours to recharge it. If you have two batteries then you have more than enough power to get all your work done without having to stop. The choice is yours.
You’ll definitely want extra spool line for your WORX GT 2.0. You’ll go through it quickly and it’s cheap!
