Worx has entered the high-voltage lawnmower game with the release of their Nitro 80V self-propelled 21-inch lawnmower. It is the first product Worx has released that uses four batteries together to achieve its rated voltage. Recommended for yards up to 1/2 acre, this electric lawnmower features a brushless motor and steel deck with mulching capability. Could this 80V mower compete with gas-powered models and fit the needs of homeowners with larger properties?
Worx Nitro 80V Self-Propelled 21-inch Lawnmower – The Big Deal
While the first 80V lawnmower released by Worx, it gets its voltage in an unusual way. Four 20V 5.0Ah batteries combine within a single 4A 4-port charger/power supply. This mounts directly onto the top of the Worx Nitro 80V lawnmower to deliver tons of power. As a result, it offers a lot more power and convenience when compared to lightweight mowers such as the Worx 40V 17-inch mower. Additionally, this self-propelled lawnmower features a system called Intellicut. This system monitors and adjusts the torque depending on the thickness of the grass, which maximizes battery runtime.
The Worx Nitro 80V self-propelled lawnmower features a two-step electric starting, which eliminates the complicated startup that sometimes comes with gas mowers. A quick-change mode lever lets the user switch between mulching and bagging modes as needed. You never have to remove a mulch plug.
There is a 2-bushel grass bag as well as a side discharge chute, so you have multiple options when it comes to bagging vs. mulching. It also comes with a fully collapsable handle for compact storage.
