you can tell the deals on woot have been lacking. the mod on here joined in may and hasn't bought a single thing yet.

to the woot staff member that screwed up the back2skool code so I could get a lot of nice things for free - thank you.

He's not a mod. He's the buyer. And that's probably his "anonymous" account that he uses for posting.

Only the blower is cordless.

Short answer: No.

Longer:
If it says "Amps", that tells you how much current it draws from the wall (or an extension cord, in this case). You'll need an extension cord rated for at least that much (they're rated in Amps).

I've never seen an extension cord rated for fewer than 10 amps, but after that, you should check. I think only the mower draws more than that.

If you're going to use more than one extension cord (one plugged into the other), you must use ones that are rated for more current than your thing draws (1 "size" bigger), or you are begging for trouble, especially if you live in a hot part of the country, since these things are used mostly in the summer.

I just burned out an edger yesterday (yeah, good timing), running it for too long without letting it cool off on a hot day. If the extensions cord is too "small", it will deliver less voltage, which will force the appliance to draw more current, which will kill it faster. I think that's what killed my electric mower a year ago. (But they both lasted 2-3 times longer than I've gotten from a battery or gas powered one.)

Higher current requires more copper, and copper's getting expensive (which is why all those buildings in Detroit have been stripped of copper wires and pipes), so you will find that a higher-capacity extension cord costs more. But not compared to replacing your edger or mower.

I'm supposed to buy something? But we're having so much fun with things as they are, I don't want to ruin it!

Yeah, you're right. Real men use reel mowers. No wussy motors for us ;-)

Of course, *really real* men use a scythe. You and all your modern trappings, bah!

However, the realest men just get someone else to do the lawn. They have man-stuff to do, like bare-knuckle boxing.

If the lawnmower was one of the Battery versions, I'd seriously consider it. My lawn area is over 100' from power so the electric cord would almost cost as much as this mower. I currently use a reel mower because my lawn is fairly small but some days I feel my age . . .

Can't vouch for these specific models but I just bought and returned a Worx electric trimmer. Thing ate line like crazy and their were zero directions as to how to advance the line. Cutting wise though it was fine.

Great at cutting the electric cord too, I can vouch for that.

I was just hoping my mower would last the rest of this year all the while I mowed last night. This Woot! Is awefully tempting though. Checked out some reviews of the mower and these are the notes I came away with…
http://www.amazon.com/WG718-19-Inch-Mulching-Discharge-Electric/dp/B001UQ70VA

Pros:
Very powerful motor handles deepest grass
Quiet
Mulching setting is excellent

Cons:
One-sided dead man’s switch requires two hands on mower (one review said compensated for this by tying the switch down)
Cord gets in the way
Internal replacement parts are not available
Directions for bag placement: confusing
Minimal bag capacity
Long ‘nose’ prevents edging around shrubs

Conflicting posts:
Some said easily maneuverable and light and another that it’s needlessly heavy

Aside from the one post citing an uneven cut and it bogging down in damp, thick grass this would appear to be a good mower for an open area lawn to mulch not bag. Been wanting an electric for my smallish lawn and the price on Woot!(>$100 cheaper than other site) will probably push me to try it out if I can bundle it with something else I ‘need’.

Bought the cordless blower from Woot last year. Still running fine. Great for the deck, around pool, and patio. Lasts about 20 min with a constant run. Charges quickly. I believe it was cheaper than this last time.

I have no idea about this particular brand/model, but corded electric motors are probably more "Manly". Strong, silent, and they do not have to be coaxed back to life every time you shove them into situations too much to handle.

I never had used or thought much about them, until I used an old Sears electric to mow about 1-1/2 acres that had been neglected for about 2 years. The property was adjacent to hay fields and pasture, so it was roughly 3 feet tall and full of weeds. Amazing. No re-starting every time I pushed it too far or too fast, no re-fueling, little noise.

On the cord, if you pay attention to the professional cleaners, especially the floor buffers, you learn that cord management is fairly simple. I use the shoulder method. I already had some very long heavy duty extension cords for vehicle block heaters, so no cost there.

Landlord's mower, or I would not have given that one up...

Yes, it certainly does include a 24-volt lithium battery and charger.

Ordered the Lawn Mower, Cordless Sweeper Blower, and 14-Inch 5.0-Amp Electric Grass Trimmer/Edger, Wheeled for less than I would have otherwise paid for the mower alone (much less lawn service for 2 months)! Can't wait to get these and take care of my lawn! Don't need no stinking lawn service (or a spouse, for that matter)! Definitely enjoying my divorce! Thanks Woot!

"Full 19-inch deck"? That's impressive! That's bigger than a "full" 18-inch deck!

Seeing that the average walk-behind mower is 20 or 21 inches, I'd say the the Worx mower is not playing with a full deck.

Will battery from the blower (Worx WG565 24-Volt Lithium Cordless Sweeper Blower) work with 24-Volt trimmer?

I've got WG167 24v 2.0 Max Trimmer...

Are all Worx 24-Volt batteries the same?

I know how you feel; I had the dilemma of matching my B&D 24V NiCd string trimmer or my various 20V+ Lithium systems; I went with Lithium, mixing my lawn care system, but at least I have far more fresh batteries available now.

Amazon says they're compatible

Wait, forget that... Worx says they're compatible!


I done good. :-)

I'm from Worx, and your 24v lith trimmer and this 24v lith blower have interchangeable batteries.

Thanks!

It seems to be cheaper to buy this blower with the battery than to buy an extra battery for my trimmer
