5 Worx Tools Win Popular Mechanics Best of the Best Awards!

It is no easy task to be voted as The Best of the Best, but WORX managed to do just that with 5 of their tools.




Taking the best tool awards handed out by Popular Mechanics, one of the USA's leading publications, were the Worx, Hydroshot WG649 1600 psi Pressure Washer, 20V Power Share Cordless 20″ 2-IN-1 Hedge Trimmer, 4V 3-Speed Power Screwdriver, and the Power Share 7.25″ Sliding Compound Mitre Saw.

Popular Mechanics routinely tests various products and tools from around the globe, not concentrating on a single brand but products and tools from suppliers the world over. This year, Popular Mechanics have been undertaking research on a wide selection of DIY and garden tools as part of their “Pop Mech Test Zone.” Conducting research on these tools has involved cutting, drilling, mowing, washing, and more, to discover the very best tools for consumers. Not only that but Popular Mechanics also rate the tools on the best value for money.

Despite the hardships of recent times, manufacturers are still going strong to bring about tool innovations to improve their current range of tools and to launch new innovative tools with outstanding features.


It's good to know that WORX Tools made the list not just once or twice, but FIVE times this year. And are now rated The Best of The Best.
