Best Lawn Mowers 2017 – Buyer’s Guide

It’s that time of the year: Spring 2017! With spring comes the renewing spirit of planting, gardening, cleaning up your lawn, and fixing up your house and your yard.

With that in mind, we have compiled the top-of-the-line lawnmowers in our list of best lawn mowers 2017. Here we go:

1. GreenWorks 25142

GW 25142
Corded: Yes
Power Amps: 10 Amps
Deck Size: 16 inches
Type of Mower: 2-in-1

A rock-solid lawn mower with 6 and 7-inch wheels that allows five height adjustment settings from 2-5/8 inches to 5/8 inches.  The grass catcher bag does a wonderful job, and you won’t need to do any sweeping or raking after you’re done mowing with the GreenWorks 25142.  It has ten amps of power and a deck size of 16 inches.

The mulching plug is very useful as well, and with this lawn mower, you’ll be able to cut every single piece of grass with unparalleled speed.  It weighs about 48 pounds so you can carry it around easily and it measures 20.3 x 15.75 x 28.4 inches.

As you see, it is compact, easy to use, easy to carry, and easy to store, so it is a perfect solution for those who have normal sized yards. For bigger yards you may want to consider buying one of the mowers in this list that has a larger deck size or more power.

The fact that it is corded is just a minor setback as you’ll have to maneuver around the yard with an extension cord, but you also get the added freedom of not having to recharge a battery. FULL REVIEW HERE.

9. Earthwise 50214 Electric Lawn Mower

EW 50214

Corded: Yes
Power/ Amps: 8 Amp
Deck Size: 14 inches
Type of Mower: 2-in-1

The Earthwise 50214 electric lawn mower is a relatively powerful, lightweight machine that combines both side discharge and mulching functionality. With a 14” deck and an 8 Amp motor that produces 3,700 revolutions per minute, this mower can complete most small front lawns and backyards in just a matter of minutes.

This lawnmower has smaller front wheels which simplify both the maneuvering and turning. You only need a slight effortless backward tilt to get the front wheels off the ground then turn to whichever side. The 36 pound mower is also easy to use on slopes, although it is never recommended to use any lawn mower on slopes more than 20 degrees.

Due to its lightweight and small size, this Earthwise mower can be carried around without too much effort. The foldable handlebar means it can always find space in your garage for those who don’t have storage sheds. Online reviews, especially from elderly homeowners with small to medium sized lawns, only sing praises for this mower since it’s easy to lift and very convenient when it comes to storage.

Other useful features include the adjustable cushioned handlebars for firm grip that can be adjusted to different heights for comfort. The blades are also adjustable using a single lever on the side for different lengths of grass (1.5 to 4 inches high) as desired. Lastly, this Earthwise mower is also considered environmentally friendly because it does not emit any fumes and it’s more quiet than a traditional gas powered mower.

PROS:

* Easy to use (handling and operation) – including on hilly landscapes
* Adjustable blade and handlebar height
* Lightweight
* No fumes, no gas
* Quick Assembly & Easy Storage – foldable handlebar

CONS:

* Needs power cord for outdoor use
* Significantly low power supply (less than 120V) causes motor to overheat

10. Worx WG775

WORX WG775

Corded: No
Power: 24 Volts
Deck Size: 14 inches
Type of Mower: 3-in-1

Like the name clearly suggests, this 24-Volt battery powered cordless mower “Worx” like magic! The Worx WG775 is not only a top contender as one of the lightest lawn mowers in its class, but it also compares well in performance and ease of use. The 3-in-1 functionality allows you to mulch, bag, or discharge, and you have a cost-effective lawn mower that also scores high on versatility and flexibility.

You can choose to discharge the cut grass through the rear, collect the grass in a bag (0.85 bushels with filled bag indicator) for disposal or mulch your grass. The cutting height ranges between 2 and 3.5 inches.

The Worx cordless lawnmower is ideal for homeowners with medium sized or smaller lawns. However, an extra battery pack can also be purchased to increase the run time in case the lawn is bigger than 6,000 square feet. Another outstanding feature of this mower is definitely the mulching blades that spit out 40% finer mulch than regular lawn mowers.

Weighing only 32 pounds means the Worx electric mower is lighter than the Earthwise, which is an advantage for users who can’t perform heavy lifting. Although children should never be allowed near electrical tools, one online reviewer happily pointed out that her 10-year-old grand daughter was able to work with this mower without breaking a sweat.

The detachable battery can be charged from anywhere at any time. This feature and the collapsible handlebar also make this mower very easy to store and move around. Furthermore, the ergonomically designed handlebar is foam-covered for extra comfort while facilitating flawless handling maneuverability.

Easy controls and the push button start are just some of the extra reasons why you should consider buying this amazing cordless lawn mower. And just like the Earthwise, the Worx is eco-friendly since it has no smelly emissions and you don’t have to deal with messy spills or noisy mowing sessions.

PROS:

* No distracting or bulky cords
* Battery runs at optimum level for 30 minutes
* Single charge can mow 6, 000 sqr feet of lawn
* Quiet and smooth operation
* Easy to maneuver

CONS:

* Limited run-time
* Not recommended for tall grass

11. GreenWorks 25302

Corded: No
Power: (2) 40V (2Ah and 4Ah) Lithium ion batteries
Deck size: 20- Inch
Type of mower: 2-in-1

GW 25302

With fossil fuels like gas becoming more scarce and expensive, people worldwide are converting to the use of electricity. Manufacturers have embarked on the production of electrical equipment to suit the needs of consumers, due to the hike in prices of fossil fuels. Unlike gasoline, the use of electrical equipment is more eco-friendly and economical. Owning a lawn mower is a necessity for anyone who has a yard or grassy area to maintain. Unreliable traditional gas lawn mowers have been replaced by convenient modern electric lawn mowers.

Admittedly, finding the best push cordless lawn mower can be a daunting and confusing task. GreenWorks is one of the highest-rated brands in the market when it comes to lawn mowers. Best known for regular innovation, the company introduces its latest G-Max Series lawn mower, the GreenWorks 25302 model.

Unlike old mowers, this one features a twin motor design that provides you with an efficient cutting performance. The lawn mower’s two motors provide power to two 10 inch metallic blades, a huge contrast to the conventional single-bladed lawn mowers on the market. The machine makes great use of two short blades, so it can easily chop grass into tiny clippings for mulching. It also integrates a patented smart cut power saving technology, a feature specially designed to help maximize the mower’s run time and battery life.

The GreenWorks 25302 also features a dual battery design, which can provide you with a more lengthy runtime. You are provided with five different cutting height options that you can quickly adjust based on your preferences. Also, you can use the same batteries for other GreenWorks electric yard tools, like a leaf blower, pole saw or chainsaw! And last but not least, it has a 2-in-1 design which includes rear bagging as well as mulching capabilities. Those who need a reliable lightweight lawn mower that is energy efficient and versatile will definitely want to see what the G-MAX has to offer.

PROS

* Mulch option
* Powerful mower
* Bag included
* Batteries can be used for other electric yard tools

CONS

12.Earthwise 50220

Corded: Yes
Power: 12 Amp
Deck size: 20- Inch Steel Mower Deck
Type of mower: 3-in-1

EW 50220

Forget about oil, gas, and fumes with the Earthwise 50220 electric lawn mower. This petite colorful machine is an environmentally friendly lawn mower. Brought to life by a 12 Amp motor, it uses electricity to function instead of gasoline. It is a pretty popular and reliable electric model. Even better, it is considerably cheaper than most gas powered mowers, so you don’t have to spend a fortune.

As with some electric lawn mowers, they can sometimes prove to be a thorn in the flesh as they may not be easy to switch on. The Earthwise is a different game changer as it is easy to switch on and off. As a corded electric lawn mower, less maintenance is required. It has no spark plug to replace and oil to change. It is ideal for those with a tiny yard or lawn and comes with a 20-inch blade.

The Earthwise has large rear wheels (9.5”) for added maneuverability. This new 3-in-1 model can mulch, bag or side discharge the grass clippings. By installing the mulch plug, the blade will cut and recut the grass for mulching. All in all, this model can be considered an excellent product even for newbies. It might not be the best mower available for small lawns, but with its affordable price, you should at least give it a chance.

PROS

* This electric lawn mower is lightweight and conducive for its push behind nature
* Its large wheels provide ease of maneuverability and comfort
* The cord run mower makes it powerful enough with little maintenance cost

CONS

* The cord may get in the way until you get a mowing pattern figured out

13. GreenWorks 25022

Corded: Yes
Power: 12 Amps
Deck size: 20 Inch
Type of mower: 3-in-1

GreenWorks 25022

We live in an age of increased awareness of how our actions impact the environment. Because of this, many consumers are opting to purchase appliances that are more energy efficient, drive hybrid cars, and shop for organically grown produce. We can also minimize our impact on the environment by changing how we take care of our lawns.

The GreenWorks 25022 is an electric lawn mower with a 12 Amp motor that can handle wet and high grass. The 20-inch blade allows you to mow your lawn with fewer sweeps while the large wheels make moving it around easy and effortless. It provides you with different cutting height options that you can easily adjust based on your preference. The 3-in-1 feature allows for rear bagging, mulching, and side discharge.

Are you sick and tired of the spring maintenance, tune ups and the hassle of getting gas all the time? Well, its time you bought an electric lawn mower. Furthermore, the only downside to it is that you’ll have to drag an extension cord after you while mowing.

PROS

* Simple push button start
* Light weight
* Powerful mower

CONS

Earthwise 50214: Better Than The 50220 Model?

Earthwise 50214: Better Than The 50220 Model?

In this article, we will be discussing the Earthwise 50214 electric lawn mower.   It has 8 amps of power (one of the lowest for electric mowers) and is corded with a 14 inch deck.

Earthwise 50214 lawnmower

Earthwise 50214 PARTS

The ‘V’ handle on this mower is padded for comfort and an easier grip, and can be adjusted to different heights. It is easy to assemble the mower by just attaching the handle, that’s it! There is no safety bar that extends along the handle on the Earthwise 50214 mower. Instead, you have to pull out a lever on the push button control board and hold it down against the handle as you mow.

The deck is poly, which is a strong plastic. The wheels are 6.5 inches in the rear and 5.5 inches in the front. Height adjustment is done easily with a single lever, and adjusts from 1.5 inches to 4 inches.

The Earthwise 50214 is a 2-in-1 mower, meaning that it has a side discharge and it mulches. It does not have a grass bag, so if you are alright with the other two features and you have a small yard, then this might be the mower for you. Most people love to mulch, as it fertilizes their lawn and cuts down on the extra work that can be involved in mowing, such as bagging or raking.

Does the Earthwise 50214 Electric Mower Have Enough POWER?

This mower runs on 8 amps of power, which is one of the lowest powered electric mowers, but if you have a well maintained smaller yard, it should work just fine. You will need a cord that will deliver enough power to run the mower if you don’t already have one. If it’s your first time with a corded mower, it might keep getting in the way as you mow. However, if you develop a pattern of mowing in your yard, it won’t even be an issue after that. You can also purchase a cord reel so it will be easier on you when it’s time to wrap up the cord afterwards.

Some people prefer the corded mowers over the cordless ones simply because they can mow as long as they need to without a battery dying, and they don’t have to buy new ones or maintain them over the winter. Others like cordless mowers because you aren’t limited by the length of a cord, and you might be able to use the battery for other cordless yard tools when you aren’t mowing. So they both have their advantages, it just depends on what works best for you.

Earthwise 50214 STORAGE Space Information

The handle folds down for easy, space saving storage. The Earthwise 50214 electric lawn mower weighs 39 pounds, which is on the lighter side of electric mowers, but you may still need help to carry it into storage, depending on your situation.

If you live in a dry climate, you could probably store it outside, but it might still be a good idea to buy a cover for it.

WARRANTY & Shipping

There is a 2 year limited warranty for residential use, but it is not intended for commercial/professional use or rentals, and that will void the warranty.

Shipping is within the U.S., but may be available to ship to select countries outside of the U.S.

Other Earthwise electric lawn mowers include the Earthwise 50518, Earthwise 60120, and Earthwise 50520.

Earthwise 50520 Electric Mower Better Than Its Predecessors?

Earthwise 50520 Electric Mower Better Than Its Predecessors?

The following is the Earthwise 50520 electric lawn mower. The Earthwise 50520 has 12 amps of power, a 20 inch steel deck, and is a corded mower:

EarthWise 50520

Earthwise 50520 PARTS

The handle of the Earthwise 50520 is padded for comfort and a easier grip, with the safety bar running across the front of the handle. All you have to do is hold down the bar along with the handle, and push the button to start the mower. It is nowhere near the amount of work it takes to run and maintain a gas mower.

Assembly is very easy and basically just involves snapping the handle into place and tightening the knobs on the side. The deck of the mower is steel, so if you are cutting damp grass, you may want to make sure you dry it when you are done mowing. Steel decks are more durable, but can rust if not properly maintained and are a lot heavier than plastic mowers.

The Earthwise 50520 is a 3-in-1 mower, meaning that you can mulch, bag the grass, or just let it shoot out of the side to rake it afterward. Most people love to mulch, as it fertilizes their lawn and there’s no extra work involved, like emptying a bag along the way or raking. If you want to use one main feature, simply disable the others.

The rear tires are 9.5 inches and the front are 7 inches for easy maneuverability. There is a single lever to adjust the height of the mower that will cut the grass from 1.5 inches to 4 inches.

Earthwise 50520 Electric LawnMower POWER

The Earthwise 50520 is a corded, 12 amp electric lawn mower, so you will need to buy an extension cord with at least that much power if you don’t already have one. If you are not used to using a corded mower, the cord may get in the way at first.

However, once you develop a pattern to mow with where the cord won’t get in the way, it won’t even be an issue. If you have a large yard, you can also buy a cord reel to wind up the cord after mowing for an easier clean up.

Some people prefer the corded mowers over the cordless ones simply because they can mow as long as they need to without a battery dying, and they don’t have to buy new ones or maintain them over the winter. Others like cordless mowers because you aren’t limited by the length of a cord, and you might be able to use the battery for other cordless yard tools when you aren’t mowing. So they both have their advantages, it just depends on what works best for you.

Earthwise 50520 STORAGE Space Needed

The handle of this mower folds down for easy, space saving storage. It is heavier because of the steel deck, so you may need help if you need to carry it into storage, depending on your situation. If you live in a dry climate, you can probably leave it outside but you may still want to get a cover for it.

Earthwise 50520 Electric Mower WARRANTY & Shipping Info

There is a 2 year limited warranty for residential use, but none for commercial/professional use. Using it for other purposes will void the warranty altogether.

Shipping is within the U.S., but may also be available to ship to select countries outside of the U.S.  Other Earthwise electric lawn mowers include the Earthwise 50518, Earthwise 60120, and Earthwise 50214.

Sun Joe MJ401E: The Perfect Light Mower?

Sun Joe MJ401E: The Perfect Light Mower?

This is the Sun Joe ‘Mow Joe’ MJ401E electric lawn mower. It is corded, with 12 amps of power and a 16.5 inch deck that provides a 14” cutting path.

Sun Joe MJ401E

Sun Joe MJ401E Electric LawnMower PARTS

The handle of this mower is padded for comfort and a better, easier grip. There is no safety bar going across the handle, but instead you have to hold down a lever to the side as you mow. It is easy to assemble the mower with just some screws to put into place.

Sun Joe MJ401E

The wheels are both the same size, at 5.5 inches, which is pretty small but should work just fine on a small yard.

The Mow Joe MJ401E only has the grass bag feature, meaning you can only collect grass and you have to keep emptying the 10.6 gallon bag. You don’t have to use it, but you should if you don’t want clumps of grass left on your lawn. There is also a side discharge attachment you can buy separately, if you need to. If you want to mulch, there are other electric mowers on this site that do that.

Sun Joe MJ401E

The 16.5 inch deck is plastic and the blade and handle bar is steel. The deck will never be in danger of rusting.

The height can be adjusted from 1.18”-2.52”, but it is more work than most other electric mowers, which can be adjusted on top with a single lever. To adjust the height at which the mower will cut your grass, you will have to turn it over and adjust all the wheels manually. You may also have to take off the grass bag first to do that. But as with all mowers, once you do it and you like the look of your grass at a certain height, you won’t have to do it again.

This mower is ETL approved, which means that the company who makes the mower and the mower itself are inspected to ensure that you are getting a quality product that it is made right.

Is The Mow Joe POWERFUL?

The MJ401E has 12 amps of power and you will need to buy an extension cord that can power it if you don’t already have one. There are different advantages to both corded and cordless mowers, but one advantage to the corded ones is that you can mow as long as you want without considering what power a battery has left. Once you develop a pattern, the cord won’t get in your way at all while mowing. If you have a bigger yard, you can also buy a cord reel to make your clean up easier and faster.

Sun Joe MJ401E

Sun Joe MJ401E Mower STORAGE

The handle on this mower collapses for easy, space saving storage. It is super lightweight, at just 29 pounds, so carrying it should not be a problem for most people.

Mow Joe WARRANTY Information

There is a 2 year warranty on this mower for residential use, and a 90 day warranty for commercial/professional use and rentals.

Earthwise 50518: 18 Inch Deck Suitable For Your Yard?

Earthwise 50518: 18 Inch Deck Suitable For Your Yard?

The following is the Earthwise 50518 electric lawn mower. It has 12 amps of power, has an 18 inch deck and is corded.  Let’s dig into some details!

Earthwise 50518

PARTS Of The Earthwise 50518 Electric Lawn Mower

The handle on the Earthwise 50518 lawnmower is cushioned for comfort and a better grip, and is adjustable in 3 positions, depending on your height and comfort level. The safety bar is in front of the handle, which you have to hold down against the handle while mowing to keep it running.

There is a single lever adjustment for the grass cutting level which cuts from 1.75 inches to 4 inches. The wheels are both the same size at 7 inches and grooved for a better grip on a damp lawn.

Earthwise 50518 electric lawn mower

This mower’s deck is 18 inches and is steel, which is very durable but more prone to rust if exposed to moisture of any kind.

The Earthwise 50518 is a 2-in-1 mower, meaning that it has a side discharge and it mulches. There is no grass bag to collect grass, so the only two options are to rake or let the mower mulch for you. Most people like to mulch anyway, since it fertilizes their lawn and there is less work to be done during and after mowing. Mulching cuts the grass into finer pieces to help fertilize your lawn, absorb extra moisture, and keep weeds away.

POWER Statistics of the Earthwise 50518 Electric Mower

This is a 12 amp electric mower (average power for these mowers) and since it is corded, you will need to buy an extension cord if you don’t already have one. It needs to be strong enough to power the 12 amps the mower needs. If it is your first time with a corded mower, you might get frustrated with the cord getting in the way. However, that won’t be an issue once you develop a pattern for mowing your lawn so the cord will stay out of the way.

Corded and cordless both have their advantages and disadvantages. Corded models can run indefinitely instead of relying on a battery that might die halfway through mowing. If you have a big yard, you can buy a cord reel to reel the cord back in, making it less work for you after mowing.

Cordless allows you freedom of movement without a cord possibly getting in the way, but you may have to stop to charge the battery. The good thing about cordless models is that if you have other electric yard tools, you can take out the battery (if they are compatible) to use those when you are not mowing. However, batteries can be very expensive, so you really have to consider that as well.

Earthwise 50518 STORAGE

The handle folds down for easy, space saving storage. The Earthwise 50518 mower weighs 44 pounds, which is still lighter than other steel mowers, but you may still need help carrying it to storage, depending on your situation. It is not recommended to leave it outside because it can rust easily.

WARRANTY

There is a 2 year limited warranty on this mower for residential use.

The handle on the GreenWorks 25012 is padded for comfort and a better grip. The safety bar is behind the handle instead of in front, like other mowers. The handle can be adjusted, depending on your height.

The deck of this model mower is steel and very durable. Most electric mowers are plastic, so it all depends on what you prefer in that area.

This a 2-in-1 mower, meaning that it has a side discharge and it mulches, but has no grass bag. If you don’t want to bag grass anyway, this will be perfect for you. Most people like to mulch because there is less work along the way and after mowing, and it helps fertilize and protect the lawn from various weather conditions. If you are looking for a mower with a grass bag, the GreenWorks 25022 model is a little more expensive, but it has all 3 features.

The tires are the same size, both measuring 7 inches. Most mowers will have larger tires in the rear than in the front. This mower is smaller and lightweight, which will make it perfect for a small yard.

There are 7 different height adjustments that will cut your grass up to 3 inches high. It is very easy to adjust and once you see what looks best, you can just keep it at that level.

GreenWorks 25012 Electric Mower POWER Information

The GreenWorks 25012 electric mower has 12 amps of power, which is pretty decent for an electric mower. It is corded, so you will need to buy an extension cord if you don’t already have one. The cord must be strong enough to deliver the 12 amps the mower needs to run smoothly. At first, the cord might be annoying to work with, but when you get a pattern going that will keep it out of your way, it won’t be a problem at all.

Most people deal with a corded mower because they don’t want a battery dying in the middle of mowing, or taking the time to charge them/maintain them. You can mow as long as you need to and if you buy a cord reel, you can easily wind the cord back up after mowing. Sun Joe has a hybrid version of one of their models where you can switch between electric and battery power. It’s a great feature, because if something happens to your battery, you can just switch to electric instead of buying a new battery.

STORAGE Info For GreenWorks 25012

The handle of this mower folds down for easy, space saving storage. It weighs 46 pounds, about 20 pounds lighter than the heaviest electric mowers. Make sure to wash your mower off around the blade to keep it clean and in great condition. If you need to store it outside, there are covers you can buy for it also. However, if you live in a state with winter seasons, it would be best to store it inside.

WARRANTY

There is a 4 year warranty for residential use, but not if you want to use the GreenWorks 25012 for commercial/professional use or rentals.

WORX WG782: Electric Lawn Mower Made For Durability?

WORX WG782: Electric Lawn Mower Made For Durability?

This article is about the the WORX WG782 electric lawn mower. It comes with a 24 volt battery and charger, and has a 14 inch deck that is best for smaller yards.

WORX WG782 electric lawn mower

WORX WG782 Lawn Mower PARTS

The handle on this mower is foam padded for comfort and an easier grip. Instead of holding down a safety bar, there is a start button in the middle with two separate handles to hold down, which you see in the picture above.

Usually the rear wheels are bigger with electric mowers, but the wheels on this model are both the same size. There is also Intellicut technology as a bonus feature, which means you can adjust the power of the motor depending on how high your grass is. You can choose either ‘power’ or ‘quiet’, which is a great feature to have as some other mowers will get bogged down in thicker grass.

WORX WG782 mower in action

WORX WG782 is a 3-in-1 mower, meaning it mulches, bags, or discharges the grass while you mow. With this model, it has a mulching blade instead of a regular one, which means your grass will be cut up extra fine. Most people love to mulch, as it fertilizes their lawn and makes for less work during and after mowing. Some electric mowers do not have a mulching blade, but they do mulch, just not quite as well as one with a mulching blade specifically.

The WG782 has a 14 inch deck, which is one of the smallest electric mowers, so it might be best to buy it if you have a smaller yard. It will take you more time, but that’s completely up to you.

Is the WG782 a POWERHOUSE?

This mower is cordless and runs with a 24 volt lead acid battery, so no need to buy or use an extension cord. You just charge and go, it’s that simple. Some people like the corded mowers because you don’t have to worry about running out of power, maintaining the battery, or having to buy a new one since they can get expensive. Cordless models are good for people with larger yards because they aren’t limited to a cord that might not stretch all the way across their yard. Some of the batteries are also compatible with other electric lawn tools, so that’s a pretty great advantage as well.

Lady using WORX WG782

The battery run time is approximately 40 minutes on quiet mode, or up to a 10,000 square feet yard.

STORAGE Space For The WORX WG782 Cordless Mower

The handle collapses for easy, space saving storage and weighs just 30 pounds, so carrying the WORX WG782 electric lawnmower to where it needs to be stored might or might not be a problem, depending on your situation. The body is plastic, so it won’t rust, but the mower should still be in storage since any kind of moisture could still damage the motor. The battery need to be kept at a charge of over 50%, especially in the winter time, if you go through winters. You cannot leave it outside, as it may freeze and then it will be useless in the spring.

WORX WG782 is compact!

WARRANTY For The WORX WG782 Mower

There is a 3 year warranty for residential use only, with registration, and a one year warranty on battery packs and chargers.

SHIPPING

Shipping is available within the U.S., but may be available to select countries outside of the U.S.

Worx Landroid Robot Mower: Best Thing In The Mowing World?!

Worx Landroid Robot Mower: Best Thing In The Mowing World?!

This is the WORX WG794 Landroid robotic cordless lawn mower. Yes, it’s a robot! No more mowing the lawn on your own or dealing with a long cord. It does all the work for you! However, before I get into this review, I want two things to be known about this mower. First, it is very expensive, and second, it will require some extra work to set it up. I will talk about that work in this review.

WORX WG794

Worx Landroid Robot Mower PARTS

The Worx Landroid Robot Mower is made of hard plastic and is very durable. As it goes along, it mulches the grass it cuts for you, so you can just sit back and watch it do its thing. It’s just like those vacuuming robots you see (it uses the same sensor technology) where they stop and turn around if there’s obstacles, but only for your lawn instead of floors!

This mower comes with 9 extra blades in case of any damage or for when the current ones might become dull. However, the blades can be flipped over in 4 different ways so you will always get a sharp blade. The Worx Landroid Robot Mower is made for yards up to 10, 750 feet and not more than 20 degree inclines.

WORX Landroid

There are height adjustments from 2”-4” and if you have thick grass to begin with, it will need to be cut first before using this robot mower. You must keep all debris out of your yard as well. It is designed specifically for maintaining your lawn, and you can program it every day or every other day to do just that.

Here is where the work comes in. You will be supplied with 590 feet of wire and 200 installation pegs to put up a perimeter around your yard so the Landroid Robot knows its boundaries. You can build a small trench to bury the wire in a line, but you have to leave room on the other side of the wire because the robot will be running up the middle of the line to get back to the base. You’ll have to use a trimmer for anything growing on the outer side of the wire. It’s definitely extra work to install, but once you have it in place, it will be such a convenient joy to have!

WORX Landroid WG794

There is an easy to use control panel, where you can set the height adjustment, schedule times for the mower to run, or set an alarm on it in case it is sitting outside for some reason.

WORX WG794 robot cordless mower

Worx WG794 POWER Oomph!

The WORX WG794 robot mower has a 28 volt lithium ion battery and the charging base plugs right into your home outlet and charges within 45 minutes. This is the base where your mower will return to automatically when the battery gets low or it senses that it’s raining. The base/charger must continually be plugged in for the mower to run.

You would no longer have to push a mower all around or mess with a big bulky cord. This Worx robot mower can run every day to keep your lawn looking its best!

WORX WG794 robot electric mower

Worx Landroid Robot Lawn Mower STORAGE Concerns

The WG794 robot mower will stay parked at its base and weighs 36 pounds. No more lugging around a regular heavy lawn mower to put into storage.

WORX Landroid WG794 robot lawnmower

Worx Landroid Robot Mower WARRANTY

There is a 3 year warranty on this mower after registration. Battery packs and chargers have a warranty of one year. It is not intended for commercial/professional use or rentals.

Sun Joe MJ403E: Great Blade Technology?

Sun Joe MJ403E: Great Blade Technology?

This is the Sun Joe ‘Mow Joe’ MJ403E electric lawn mower. It is 13 amps with a 17 inch deck and is corded.

Sun Joe MJ403E

Sun Joe MJ403E Electric LawnMower PARTS

The handle on the Sun Joe MJ403E electric lawn mower is padded for comfort and better grip, with a quick start button and safety bar across the front. The rear wheels are bigger than the front and the whole body of the mower is a strong durable plastic.

There is a single lever height adjustment handle that easily adjusts the height of the mower in 7 different positions, from about 1 inch to 3 inches. It is ETL approved, which means it was held to the most strict tests and inspections to make sure it is the best quality it can be.

Sun Joe MJ403E

This Sun Joe MJ403E mower is a 2-in-1 mower, which means it bags or mulches. If you want the option of a side discharge as well, you will have to look at 3-in-1 mowers. Most people love to mulch anyway, as it fertilizes their lawn and makes for less work during and after mowing. The grass bag is 12 gallons, which is about average, but if you want a bigger bag, the MJ408 model has this beat by 2.5 gallons. Although the 408 has a bigger grass bag and has a one inch larger deck, it also has one less amp and is heavier by about 20 pounds.

Sun Joe Mow Joe POWER

The Sun Joe MJ403E Mow Joe mower needs 13 amps of power and you will need to buy an extension cord that is strong enough to run the mower and long enough to stretch across your yard, if you don’t already have one. Unlike the cordless models, you will have an unlimited power supply and will never have to worry about charging or buying new batteries. Once you figure out a nice mowing pattern, the cord shouldn’t be a problem at all. If you hate wrapping up the cord after mowing, you can always buy a cord reel to make it easier with the clean up.

Sun Joe MJ403E

Some people prefer a cordless model because they can go anywhere without dealing with a cord, and while that is true, batteries do lose charges and can die and they are very expensive. They also need to be charged all winter as well. That is not to dissuade you, as they do provide the freedom of going anywhere in your yard or places that don’t have a plug. Some cordless models are also compatible with other cordless yard tools. So if there’s still enough power after mowing, you can take the battery out and use another tool like a trimmer or chainsaw!

Sun Joe MJ403E STORAGE

The handle on the Mow Joe folds down for easy, space saving storage and it’s so light you can probably carry it anywhere. The body is all plastic so you don’t have to be concerned about rust and you can leave it outside under a cover if you live in a dry climate. If you live in a seasonal state, the mower should still be brought in or stored in a shed, as the electrical components could still be affected.

WARRANTY

There is a 2 year warranty on this model for residential use. If it is for professional/commercial use, there is a 90 day warranty. It is also 90 days for rentals and leases.

EGO Power+ Electric Mower: Any Serious Flaws?

EGO Power+ Electric Mower: Any Serious Flaws?

This is the EGO Power+ electric lawn mower. It is the core model LM2000, but with a 56 volt battery and charger included. The mower has a 20” deck and is cordless.

EGO Power+

EGO Power Plus PARTS

The handle has a hard padding so you might have to wear gloves if your hands get irritated by rubbing against it. There is a start button you have to push to start the Ego Power Plus mower, and then hold down the safety bar in front of the handle.

This is a 3-in-1 mower, which means you can mulch, bag, or discharge the grass. Most people love to mulch as it fertilizes their lawn and lessens the work they might have to do while mowing or after. But if you prefer to bag or rake, those options are easily accessible as well.

EGO Power Plus Mower

The body of the EGO Power+ is a strong durable plastic and can stand up against mostly any kind of weather and won’t rust like mowers that have a metal frame/deck. It is super quiet, as is true with most electric mowers. There is a single lever handle for easy height adjustment from 1.5-3.5 inches.

There is an added feature that is unique to electric mowers in general, and that is LED headlights! If you get off of work and it’s dark or you wake up before sunrise, you can still cut your grass, no daylight needed! It’s very convenient for any time of the day OR night.

EGO Power Plus POWER (HA!)

The Ego Power+ is a cordless electric lawn mower that has a 56 volt, 4Ah arc_lithium battery (improved from a regular lithium ion battery), and it comes with a charger as well. There is no cord to mess with and you won’t be limited in how far you can go if you have a big yard. Batteries can get expensive though, so some people prefer the corded models as you can mow with unlimited power. But if you like cordless tools, this battery is pretty strong and should last a while. You can mow for 45 minutes after charging for 30 minutes.

EGO Power Plus

There are also 5.0 Ah and 7.5Ah battery models available, if you want more power, but the 7.5 will cost you hundreds more.

EGO Power+ STORAGE Space

The EGO mower weighs 65 pounds so you may or may not need help storing it. The handle folds down for easy, space saving storage. If you live in a state that has a winter, you will want to keep the battery in a warmer place since it can freeze in cold weather. The battery must be kept charged throughout winter at over 50%.

EGO Power+

Ego Power Plus Mower WARRANTY

There is a 5 year warranty (one of the longest warranties on these electric mowers) on the mower itself, and a 3 year warranty on the battery pack and charger. If you plan to use the Ego Power Plus mower for professional/commercial use, it will be covered for one year. If you use it for rentals, that voids the warranty. It does not cover the blade in either case.

Sun Joe MJ408E: ETL Approved Corded Mower Deliver Performance?

Sun Joe MJ408E: ETL Approved Corded Mower Deliver Performance?

Look at that: time to check out the Sun Joe MJ408E electric lawn mower. It is corded, with 12 amps of power and a 20 inch deck with a steel blade. It is ETL approved, which means that the company who makes the mower and the mower itself are inspected to ensure that you are getting a quality product that it is made right.

Sun Joe MJ408E

Sun Joe MJ408E Electric Lawn Mower PARTS

The handle on this mower is padded for comfort and an easier, better grip. The safety bar is in front of the handle bar. All you have to do is hold down the safety bar and press the start button, that’s it! No gas fumes, no yanking on a start cord, no loud noise. These mowers are very quiet, so they will never bother your neighbors and you can actually talk to someone while you mow if you needed to.

The rear wheels are 10 inches and the front wheels are 7 inches, which is common among most electric mowers.

The body of the Sun Joe MJ408E mower is mostly plastic and has 7 height adjustments that cuts the grass up to 4 inches high.

This is a 3-in-1 mower, meaning that it mulches, bags, or discharges the grass off to the side. Most people like to mulch since it helps to fertilize their lawn, and they don’t have to keep emptying the grass bag along the way or rake after they’re done mowing. However, the grass bag itself is 14.5 gallons if you need or want to bag the grass as you mow, which is bigger than some of the other electric mowers.

Sun Joe MJ408E POWER Packs a Punch!

The Sun Joe MJ408E electric lawnmower has 12 amps of power, which is about the average of most electric mowers. It is corded, so you will need to buy an extension cord if you don’t already have one. It needs to be powerful enough to deliver 12 amps to the mower.

Sun Joe MJ408E

Some people don’t like dealing with a cord, but once you set up a pattern for the way you are going to mow, it shouldn’t get in the way at all. You can also buy a cord reel to easily wrap up the cord when you are done mowing. If you have a small yard, a cordless mower should do pretty well, if you don’t want to deal with a cord. Batteries need to be recharged and maintained over the winter, so the corded and cordless both have their advantages/disadvantages.

STORING the Sun Joe MJ408E…

The handle folds down for easy, space saving storage. The mower weighs 51.8 pounds, so you may or may not need help, depending on your situation. You can store this outside if you live in a dry climate, but if you don’t, you can still buy a lawn mower cover for it to keep the handle from rusting. It is not wise though to cover it in a plastic sheet, as that will trap moisture and may harm the electrical parts of the mower.

For other Sun Joe options, check out the Sun Joe iON16LM-HYB and the Sun Joe MJ402E.

WARRANTY

There is a 2 year warranty on this mower for residential use, and 3 months for commercial/professional use.

GreenWorks 25112: 13 Amps of Power Enough?

GreenWorks 25112: 13 Amps of Power Enough?

This is the GreenWorks 25112 electric lawn mower review. It is corded, with 13 amp of power and a 21” deck, which should give you about 19.5-20 inches of a cut path.  Before we officially begin, you should know that GreenWorks is a well-known brand of mowers.  In the end of this review, we will also include a list of other Green works electric lawn mowers that you may want to check out.

GW 25112

On to the GreenWorks 25112 lawn mower…

GreenWorks 25112 Corded Lawn Mower PARTS

The handle on this mower is padded for comfort and an easier, better grip. There is a safety bar across the handle you have to hold down to keep the mower running. Assembly for the mower is very easy, requiring no tools, just snapping the handle together.

The blades are made of steel, so they should be strong enough to accidentally hit a rock or run over a branch without any damage.

There are 7 different height adjustments (more than other electric mowers), which range from 1 ¾”-3 3/4”, easily adjusted with a single lever.

The wheels are 10 inches in the rear and 7 inches in the front, and have a grooved design, allowing for a better grip. Some electric mowers have a flat surfaced tire, so this is a better feature to have if you find yourself cutting damp or wet grass.

GW 25112

The GreenWorks 25112 is a 3-in-1 mower, meaning that it mulches, bags, or has a side discharges your grass. Most people love to mulch because it lessens the work you have to do during or after mowing, and it fertilizes your lawn. It also soaks up extra moisture if it rains a lot in your area, and it keeps weeds away. If you have to bag your grass, the grass bag can easily be attached and detached. You can even collect dry leaves, although it won’t be as good as a lawn vac or something similar.

Does the GreenWorks 25112 Electric Mower Contain Enough POWER Oomph?

This is a corded mower with 13 amps of power, which is pretty decent where power is concerned, when compared with other electric mowers. You will need to buy an extension cord if you don’t already have one, and it needs to contain enough power to run the mower. If you are going by ‘gauges’, a 50 foot cord will need to be 16 gauge, a 100 foot cord will need 14, and a 150 foot cord will need 12.

Some people don’t like dealing with a cord, and some don’t like batteries dying on them halfway through mowing their lawn, so it’s all about your preference, of course. Once you develop a pattern while mowing with the cord, it shouldn’t get in the way at all, and you won’t have to deal with that potential problem.

GW 25112

STORAGE

The handle folds down on top of this mower for easy, space saving storage. The mower itself weighs about 53 pounds, so you may or may not need help to carry it into storage. If you need to leave it outside, you should buy a cover for it, since the handle and blade are metal and therefore won’t fare well in bad weather.

GreenWorks 25112 WARRANTY

There is a 4 year warranty for residential use, but not for commercial/professional use.

Black & Decker CM1936ZA: Is This Cordless Model The Best Option?

Black & Decker CM1936ZA: Is This Cordless Model The Best Option?

The following article is about the Black & Decker CM1936ZA electric lawn mower. It is cordless, with a 36 volt lead acid battery.

B&D CM1936ZA

Black & Decker CM1936ZA PARTS

The Black & Decker CM1936ZA electric lawn mower comes already assembled and is started with a key and a pull of the handle. The handle itself does not have good padding so you might have to wear gloves to avoid any blisters or soreness on your hands. The safety bar runs along the front of the handle, which you must keep pressed down as you are holding the handle to mow.

This mower is best for yards up to 1/3 acre and has a single lever for a height adjustment of 1.5-3.5 inches. It is a 3-in-1 mower, which means you can mulch, bag or let the grass discharge from the rear. Most people choose to mulch, as it fertilizes their lawn and leaves less work to do during or afterward. If you like using the discharge feature but hate a rear discharge, there are other mowers that have a side discharge, which is less messier.

B&D CM1936ZA

The rear wheels are bigger than the front ones for easy maneuverability and the cutting deck is 19 inches, so you may get a cutting path of 18 inches. It’s usually an inch less than what the deck measures. The mower is made with a very durable plastic so it will never rust.

POWER

This is a 36V mower and comes with a lead acid battery which can last up to an hour, depending on the condition of your grass (wet, thick, etc). Lead acid batteries will last longer than lithium ion batteries, but lithium will be much lighter. The mower weighs 90 pounds, which is one of the heaviest electric mowers, so it might be a little harder to push and move around.

B&D CM1936ZA

There are two drawbacks to a cordless mower, one being if you have a huge yard you might lose power, and the second one is batteries are very expensive to replace when they die. So you have to consider those possibilities before buying one. However, not having to deal with a cord is something some people love, and if you have a smaller yard, you won’t need to charge the battery at all while mowing.

STORING the Black & Decker CM1936ZA

The handle folds down over the mower for easy, space saving storage. If you live in an area that has winters, you should not store the battery outside as it may freeze. You can store the mower in a shed, but the battery must remain in a warmer place and continue to be charged all winter. The battery will slowly lose power as it sits there, so you must keep an eye on it throughout the winter.

B&D CM1936ZA storage space

WARRANTY

There is a 2 year limited warranty on this mower for residential use. It is not intended for commercial use or rentals, and there is a lifetime warranty on the deck itself.

Black & Decker MM2000: Does It Live Up to the B & D Quality?

Black & Decker MM2000: Does It Live Up to the B & D Quality?

Today, we will be discussing the Black & Decker MM2000 electric lawn mower. It is 20 inches, has 13 amps of power, and is corded.  A nice standard orange and black color:

B&D MM2000

Black & Decker MM2000 Electric Lawn Mower PARTS

The Black & Decker MM2000 is very easy to assemble because it only requires you to attach the handle to the mower. The handle itself is adjustable from 40”-44” from the ground up and is numbered to help guide you in adjusting it. The padding for the handle is not the greatest, so you may need gloves to avoid blisters while mowing. The safety bar is in front of the handle for an easy grip to keep the mower running.

There are 7 height adjustments for grass height that range from 1.5”-4”, and is easily done with a single lever handle to the side of the mower. The front wheels are smaller than the rear ones for easy maneuverability. The MM2000 also has the EdgeMax feature, which lets you mow very close to objects like a flower bed, fences, or whatever else you have to mow around.

B&D MM2000This mower is a 3-in-1 which means it lets you choose whether to mulch, bag, or let the grass discharge from the side. The grass bag is 13 gallons, which should be okay if you have a smaller yard. If you have a big yard, you will need to empty it a few times.

Most people love to mulch though, as it fertilizes their lawn and makes for less work while mowing. Many of us don’t have the time nor want to deal with bagging or raking.

Black & Decker MM2000 POWER

The B&D MM2000 electric mower has 13 amps of power and is corded, so you will need to buy an extension cord that can power the mower and is long enough to reach across your yard. Some people don’t like dealing with a cord, but the advantage is that you can run it from a regular house outlet and it will have unlimited power. A cordless model’s battery might drain before you are finished if you have a large yard, so that is something to consider.

If you are going with a corded model, you might want to buy a cord reel as well to make it easier to reel the cord back in instead of wrapping it up and creating extra work for yourself.

Once you get a mowing pattern down, the cord shouldn’t be in your way at all.

Is the Black & Decker MM2000 a STORAGE Hog?

The handle folds down on top of this Black & Decker electric lawn mower for easy, space saving storage. It’s a little heavier than other electric mowers, so you may or may not need help putting it into storage. If you live in a dry climate, you can probably just put a cover over the mower to store it. There is no battery so you never have to worry about keeping it charged or letting it freeze.

B&D MM2000

WARRANTY

There is a 2 year limited warranty for private use only, not commercial use or rentals.

Worx WG775: What’s SO Special About It?

Worx WG775: What’s SO Special About It?

This is the WORX WG775 cordless lawn mower, also called Lil’Mo. Lol, enjoy this Lil’Mo review!

WORX WG775

Worx WG775 Lawn Mower PARTS

The handle is padded for comfort and a better grip, and does not have the usual start bar across the handle. To keep the mower running, there are two separate handles to grasp and hold down, along with the main handle. You can see it for yourself in the picture below. It is 42 inches tall, and does not adjust, like some other electric mowers do.

The wheels are about the same size so the WORX WG775 lawn mower stays flat while you mow your lawn. This differs from most mowers, which usually have a bigger back tire. The deck is 14”, and the cutting path is 13”.

WORX WG775

This is a 3-in-1 mower, meaning that it mulches, bags, or discharges the grass as you go along. Most mowers that discharge do so from the side, but this one discharges from the rear. The bag is easy to attach and has an indicator to let you know when the bag is getting full. If you prefer to mulch (as this helps nourish your lawn), you can just keep the mulching attachment in.

The blades may need to be sharpened after using the mower a few times, but that depends on the circumstances. It would be a good idea, though, to keep it sharpened just so the mower cuts the grass efficiently. There are 3 height adjustments, from 2”-3.5”.

WORX WG775 POWER

This WORX WG775 lawn mower is cordless and comes with a strong 40V lead acid battery that can cut up to 6,000 sq ft in a single charge. Most mowers will come with a lithium-ion battery, so it depends on what you prefer.

If you live in a state which has a winter season, it would be safer to store the battery inside if you are storing the mower in a shed or outside. If you must store the battery in the shed, make sure it is continually charged to at least 50%, as there is a chance it could freeze and you would have to purchase another one.

WORX WG775

The WORX WG775 cordless mower is also very quiet. You can carry on conversations while mowing, or mow very early in the morning without disturbing your neighbors. It is so easy to push that even people with physical disabilities should be able to use it without a problem.

Easy STORAGE For WORX WG775 Lawn Mower

The Lil’Mo is plastic and therefore lightweight, weighing 32 pounds. The handle does not fold down over the mower, but it can detach by removing the bolts. The body will never rust like metal framed mowers.

WARRANTY

There is a 3 year warranty when you register on the company’s main website. Batteries have a one year warranty, even if you don’t register. It is not intended for commercial/professional use or rentals.

Sun Joe MJ402E – Well-Designed Electric Lawn Mower?

Sun Joe MJ402E – Well-Designed Electric Lawn Mower?

In this article, we are reviewing the Sun Joe MJ402E electric lawn mower details!  Cutting to the chase: It is a corded electric lawn mower and is best for small to midsize yards. The deck is 16” so you would get a 15” cutting path.

Sun Joe MJ402E

Sun Joe MJ402E Electric Lawn Mower PARTS

The handle on this mower is not padded and the safety bar run across the handle. You have to hold both that and the handle to keep the mower running, so you might need to wear gloves for comfort and a better grip. The handle only has one adjusting position and does not fold down, like some other electric mowers.

Sun Joe MJ402E

The Sun Joe MJ402E mower is all plastic, including the wheels, which measure 8 inches in the rear and 6 inches in the front. They may not grip as well as rubber wheels if you are mowing damp or wet grass, but it shouldn’t be a problem with dry grass. You can easily adjust the cutting height with a single lever that goes up to 4 inches.

Sun Joe MJ402E

The MJ402E is a 2-in-1 mower, in that you can either bag the grass or take off the bag to mulch. Mulching fertilizes your yard by leaving behind tiny pieces of grass to nourish/protect the soil, and it helps to fight off weeds. The grass bag is small, at 9.3 gallons, so you will have to empty it frequently and you have a bigger yard.

Is This Electric Lawn Mower Powerful Enough?

This is a corded mower, so you will have to buy an extension cord if you don’t already have one. It would have to be long enough for your yard and deliver at least 12 amps of power for the mower. You just plug it into an outlet and you are ready to go.

The main advantage of a corded electric mower versus a cordless one is not having to stop mowing to charge a battery. You can mow as long as you need to, and you never have to buy a new battery, but cordless models do have their advantages as well. It all depends on your preference and the size of your yard. A small to midsize yard would be okay with a cordless mower.

Some people don’t like a cord getting in the way while mowing, but once you get a pattern going, it shouldn’t be a bother at all. You can also buy a cord reel if you are using a long cord, to make it easier to wrap up after mowing.

Sun Joe MJ402E

Sun Joe MJ402E Electric Lawn  Mower STORAGE

The handle does not fold down over the mower, but can be taken apart for storage. The mower itself weighs 30.4 pounds, which is pretty light compared to some of the other electric mowers. Carrying it into storage, if you have to, should be easy depending on the situation. Even though it’s plastic, you shouldn’t leave it outside, just to be safe. And plus, the handle is metal and can rust if there’s any rain.

WARRANTY

There is a 2 year warranty on the Sun Joe MJ402E electric lawn mower.

Should You Purchase The Remington RM202A?

Should You Purchase The Remington RM202A?

Is the Remington RM202A another hyped up piece of machinery or will it help you get the job smoothly and efficiently? Well, let’s get this question answered!

Basics: the Remington RM202A electric lawn mower is corded, with 12 amps of power, and has a 19 inch steel deck.

Remington RM202A

Remington RM202A PARTS

This mower’s handle is padded for comfort and an easy grip. It can be adjusted to 3 different positions and has a push button start up. There is no safety bar across the handle, but instead, there is a lever to hold down on the right side.

The wheels are the same size, both measuring 7 inches. The steel deck is 19 inches and very durable, but heavier than some other electric mowers. Some very small parts are plastic though, and this mower is mainly intended for smaller yards. You can easily adjust the height with a single lever that goes from 1.25” – 3.5”.

Remington RM202A

The RM202A is a 2-in1 mower, meaning that you can only use the side discharge or mulch. Most people like to mulch, since that fertilizes your lawn, and there’s no extra work to do because the machine does it all as you go along. Other mowers are 3-in-1, with a bag attached to collect the grass. If you need to do that instead of the other 2 options, check out the other options coming up!

POWER

This is a corded mower, so you will have to buy an extension cord if you don’t already have one, that is long enough for the length of your yard. It should be at least a 12 amp cord, because that is what this mower requires to run. If you are new to electric mowers, the cord can be somewhat of a nuisance when you start out. Once you develop the best pattern to mow with, it shouldn’t be a bother at all, except folding it back up. There are cord reels you can buy, which will make that job so much easier.

Some people prefer corded mowers over cordless because there are no batteries to deal with, whether it’s replacing expensive ones or having to stop mowing to recharge them. The corded models are run with the electric from your house, a constant supply of it, so you can mow however long you need to. But if you hate dealing with a cord, you might want to check out some cordless models I have reviewed. If you have a small or medium yard, you shouldn’t run out of power with a cordless mower, and you can recharge after mowing. Some mowers come with more powerful batteries than others.

STORAGE

The handle does not fold over, like some mowers, to save space. However, it might be able to be taken off for storage. Most of this mower is steel, so you won’t want to store it outside if you get bad weather. It weighs 57 pounds, which is on the heavier side of electric mowers, so you might need help to store it.

Remington RM202A WARRANTY Information

There is a 2 year warranty on this mower.

GreenWorks 25302 – Great Cordless Option?

GreenWorks 25302 – Great Cordless Option?

This is the GreenWorks 25302 G-MAX electric lawn mower. It is a cordless mower and comes with 2 batteries and a charger. It is plastic so it’s light and easy to push. Now that you know the basics, let’s discuss the GreenWorks 25302 in greater detail.

GW 25302

GreenWorks 25302 PARTS

The handle of this mower has a black rubber padding for comfort and a better grip. There are 5 height adjustment positions for the mower, ranging from 1-1/4”-3-1/8”.

This mower is a 2-in-1, meaning it mulches or bags your grass. It does not have a side discharge, like some other mowers have, so those are your only two choices. If you like to mulch or you prefer to bag your grass, it won’t really be a factor in your decision to buy this mower. It is a very nicely constructed mower and is very reliable. Mulching fertilizes your yard, so that seems to be the best choice anyway!

GW 25302


There are dual blades, each being 10 inches,
for a more precise cut and greater mulching capabilities. Also this mower has a 20” deck, on the larger size for most electric mowers. The front wheels are 7” and the rear wheels are 10”.

GW 25302

The GreenWorks 25302 has smart cut technology, meaning that it will detect how tall your grass is and use only the power it needs to, thus using less battery power if your grass is short. Some mowers run at the same speed no matter what, so that is something to consider.

POWER

This is a cordless mower, and comes with 2 lithium-ion batteries (1-2Ah, and 1-4Ah). The 4 Ah will last longer, but will take longer to charge at about 2 hours, and the smaller one will take one hour. If you already have a 4 Ah battery at home, you can use both 4 Ah’s to get more mow time and save the 2 Ah for other cordless lawn tools, like a hedgetrimmer or chainsaw if you wanted to. In the winter, you could use the batteries for an electric snow thrower!

GW 25302

A great feature on this mower is that if one of the batteries dies while mowing, it will change over to the other one so you can keep going. There is an indicator to tell you when the batteries are getting low. You should get up to an hour of mowing time.

GW 25302

If you live in a state that has a winter season, wherever you store your lawn mower, make sure to take the batteries out. If you are storing the batteries in the shed and it gets very cold, you should keep them continually charged at 50% or higher to avoid freezing. If you are busy, I would suggest keeping them in the house somewhere, but still checking on the charge here and there.

STORAGE Space For The GreenWorks 25302

The handle of this mower folds over on top for easy, space saving storage. It weighs 42.5 pounds, about 15-20 pounds lighter than a steel mower, but you may still need help if you have to carry it into storage.

WARRANTY

There is a 4 year warranty on the mower for residential use and a 2 year warranty on the batteries. This mower is not intended for commercial/professional use and will not be covered for that.

GreenWorks 25142 Gets Everything Right?

GreenWorks 25142 Gets Everything Right?

As far as electric lawn mowers go, if you have owned one, your next buy becomes a lot easier. Why? Because you now know what you need and how much you loved or hated your last one.

Having looked at quite a few of these things, we were excited to check out the GreenWorks 25142 16 inch, corded electric lawn mower. Let’s dig in!

GW 25142

PARTS

The handle on this mower is padded for comfort and a better grip and has a button to start the mower. The safety bar is toward the front of the handle, so it’s easy to hold down against the handle.

The body of the mower is plastic, so it will never be in danger of rusting, but the handle is metal. Because it’s mostly plastic, it’s very light and easy to push. There is no EdgeMax design on this mower that allows you to cut closely around flower beds or fences, so you will most likely need a trimmer to get an all around even cut around your yard.

This is a 2-in-1 mower, meaning that it mulches or bags only and does not have a discharge feature. Most people like to mulch since it fertilizes their yard and there is no extra work involved. There is no emptying the bag along the way, or raking your yard afterward. If you prefer to bag, that feature is still there for you.

GW 25142

There is a single height adjustment lever that has 5 different height levels for your grass, from 1 inch to 3 ¼ inch. It’s easy to adjust, and if you keep up with your mowing, you probably won’t have to adjust it again.

The rear wheels on this mower are 7 inches and the front wheels are 6 inches, smaller than some other electric mowers.

How much POWER Does The GreenWorks 25142 Hold?

This is a 10 amp corded mower, which is on the low end of most electric mowers. It will work well, but might be more suited for yards that you are just maintaining vs cutting tall grass. You might want more power where that is concerned, if that is your situation, or you could just take it slow and easy the first time.

There is no battery, so you don’t need to concern yourself with the care of batteries or them getting drained halfway into mowing your lawn. You will have to buy an extension cord if you don’t already have one, one that is long enough for your yard. It needs to be at least able to cover the 10 amps this mower needs. Once you get a pattern down with the cord, it shouldn’t get in your way as you go along.

STORAGE

The handle folds down over the Greenworks 25142 mower for easy, space saving storage. It is lightweight, weighing 37.5 pounds, so lifting it shouldn’t be a problem for most people. If you have to store it outside, it would be a good idea to get a cover for it. Also, it is safe to clean under the deck of the mower with a hose before you store it.

GreenWorks 25142 WARRANTY

There is a 4 year warranty on this mower for residential use and a 90 day warranty for commercial use. A lot of mowers do not have a warranty for commercial/professional use, so this is something extra to consider.

Black & Decker EM 1500 – The Best Corded Mower Option?

Black & Decker EM 1500 – The Best Corded Mower Option?

In this article, we are discussing the Black & Decker EM1500 Electric Lawn Mower. Black & Decker is known for putting out quality electronics and, in this article, we will be going in-depth.

Let’s start with the basics: the EM 1500 corded electric lawn mower is corded and is also available with a 17” deck as well, for a little extra cost. If you have a small yard, then this 15” model should be just fine.

Black & Decker EM 1500 PARTS

The handle does not have any padding on it, so this is one factor you will want to consider if you like a nice padded grip when you are mowing. This mower starts with the push of a button and then you hold down the handle to start.

All of the parts are hard plastic, except for the handle and blade. The body will never rust or be vulnerable to most weather conditions. The noise is a little irritating, but it is still much more quiet than a gas mower. The added benefit of not having to breathe in gas fumes or go to the gas station to fill up your gas jug, or add oil to these mowers is well worth it!

Black & Decker EM1500

There are 6 height adjustments, from 1”-3”, and is easy to adjust with one handle. The Edge Max feature allows you to line up the mower to cut near fences or borders, unlike some other electric lawn mowers.

This mower does not mulch very well, if at all. It’s designed to be used with the attached grass catcher compartment, but some people just take it off and leave the grass behind. It would be a lot easier to bag or dump though, if the grass catcher is attached. There is no side discharge on this mower, which is also a thing to consider if that is an option you would like to have.

POWER

This is a corded mower, so you will have to buy an extension cord if you don’t already have one. You should buy a 50 foot, 16 gauge one for smaller yards, and a 100 foot, 14 gauge one for larger yards. That should support this 10 Amp mower quite well. You can wrap the cord onto the mower so it won’t get in your way as you are mowing.

Woman walking with B & D EM 1500B&D EM1500 with wire

PowerDrive technology gives this mower more power, making it easier to cut damp or tall grass. Some mowers won’t handle wet grass as well, or will start to lose power if you are cutting high grass. With this one, you can plow right through most of it.

How Much Storage Does Black & Decker EM 1500 Require?

The handle folds down on top of the mower after it is unscrewed, for easy space saving storage. It is also lighter than some other electric mowers, at 36.25 pounds, so carrying it into storage shouldn’t be too much of a burden. You also don’t have to keep up the maintenance of charging batteries or storing them in a safe manner. With this you can just plug and go, never running out of power.

B+D EM1500

WARRANTY

There is a 2 year limited warranty for faulty parts, not caused by abuse or neglect.

Shipping is within the U.S., but also can be shipped to select countries outside of the U.S.

Did The Black and Decker CM2040 Electric Lawn Mower Disappoint?

Did The Black and Decker CM2040 Electric Lawn Mower Disappoint?

Welcome to our Black and Decker CM2040 electric lawn mower analysis page. Here you will find a lot of information that will help you decide whether this Black and Decker electric lawn mower is worth your time. First and foremost: the Black and Decker CM2040 is cordless, and comes with a battery and charger.

Black and Decker CM2040 PARTS:

Only after using this Black and Decker electric lawn mower model, you will notice this: the handle is not padded, so if your hands get sore holding onto it, you might need to wear gloves. Most mowers do have a padded handle for comfort and easy grip, unlike this one. There is a bar along the handle in the front to hold against the handle to keep the Black and Decker CM2040 running.

B&D CM2040

Starting the CM2040 is easy: no pulling cords, just hit the start button.

The wheels are bigger than most electric mowers for more gripping action and easier maneuverability. There are 6 height adjustments from 1.5”-4” and are easy to adjust with a single lever on the top to the side.

This Black and Decker electric lawn mower contains the Edgemax feature, which means you are able to get close cuts around the borders of your yard, or around flower beds.

The CM2040 is a 3-in-1 mower, meaning that it mulches, bags, or discharges the grass on the side. Most people love to mulch, as they don’t have any extra work to do other than mowing. Mulching mowers leave behind very small pieces of grass to help fertilize your lawn by retaining moisture, and keeping weeds away. The bag is not very big, and is about the size of a small garbage bag at 15 gallons. You would end up emptying it frequently while mowing, if you have a big yard. Not many people like to rake, but if you like to, you can let the grass discharge from the side instead of the other options.

POWER:

This is a cordless mower that comes with two 2.5 Ah 40V Max batteries and a charger. This is a great feature because if you have a small yard, you can always use the other battery for another 40V electric lawn tool. If you have a large yard, the two batteries will last long enough to get the job done.

If you live in a state that has a winter season, keep the batteries indoors. If they are in a shed and it’s very cold out, just make sure they are kept at at least a 50% charge, as they can freeze easier at a lower charge.

B&D CM2040

Some people prefer cordless so they can avoid dealing with a long cord and can just start mowing. Others prefer the corded mowers so they don’t have to charge batteries, buy new ones if they die, or care for the winter storage of them.

There is another great thing about this mower, in that it can sense how tall the grass is that you are cutting and slow or speed up the motor accordingly. If the grass is taller, the motor will speed up, and if it is short the motor will lose some power. This is the perfect feature because it can prolong the battery’s life if you have different lengths of grass, or if you have short grass already. It won’t always run at the same energy draining level.

Black and Decker Electric Lawn Mower CM2040 STORAGE:

The handle folds down over the mower for easy, space saving storage. The mower weighs 59.5 pounds, not exactly a light thing to carry if you are alone. If you need to leave it outside, you can always buy a cover for it and it should be okay, as it is mostly plastic. However, if you are leaving it out in a state that has a winter season, be sure to remove the batteries first.

B&D CM2040

Black and Decker CM2040 WARRANTY:

There is a 2 year limited warranty on this Black and Decker mower for residential use and is not intended for commercial/professional use.

Earthwise Electric Lawn Mower: What Makes The Earthwise 50220 Better?

Earthwise Electric Lawn Mower: What Makes The Earthwise 50220 Better?

Given that we are all about electric lawn mowers, when we checked out the Earthwise electric lawn mower, low & behold, our excitement grew. This is the Earthwise 50220 corded electric lawn mower. You are about to learn whether you should put some money down on this mower or not, so, we hate wasting time. Let’s dive in:

EW 50220

Earthwise Electric Lawn Mower 50220 PARTS:

There is a V handle on this mower that is padded for comfort and for a better grip. It makes it easier to hold the handle with your hands closer together in an upward angle instead of flat, if that is what you like.

The deck is very durable steel and is 20″.

The wheels are 7” in the front and 9.5” in the rear for easy maneuverability. There are also height adjustments from 1.5”-4”, depending on how high you like your grass. It’s very easy to adjust with a single lever that sits on top of one of the back wheels.

EW 50220

This is a 3-in-1 electric lawn mower, meaning it mulches, bags your grass, or you can let it discharge off to the side. Most people love to mulch because there is no extra work after or in between mowing and they will have a healthier, better looking lawn afterward. For those who don’t know, when your mower mulches, it leaves tiny bits of grass behind on the soil in your yard. It fertilizes the soil, helps retain moisture, helps to fight off weeds, among other healthy things.

What Kind of POWER Is Behind This Earthwise Electric Lawn Mower:

The Earthwise 50220 is corded, so you will have to buy an extension cord if you don’t already have one that will work. You can buy 50 foot or 100 foot cords, depending on the size of your yard. You must make sure it can power this 12 Amp mower, and it should say what power it is right on the cord package you buy.

EW 50220

There is no battery, but some people really do prefer that, as they don’t like having to change the battery or keep charging it. With the corded model mowers, you can just keep going for however long you need to. The only drawback is if you haven’t developed a strategy for dragging the cord along when mowing, it could become bothersome. But once you know what to do with it, you are good to go.

Earthwise 50220 STORAGE:

The handle folds down for easy, space saving storage. The Earthwise 50220 weighs 62 pounds, one of the heavier electric mowers, so that might be something to consider if you have to carry it into storage by yourself. If you need to leave it outside, there are covers you can buy for it separately, since the mower is made of steel and won’t do well in bad weather. If it doesn’t rain much where you live, you can always look at models that are all plastic so you can leave it outside most of the time. If you need to take it into storage, it will be much lighter to carry… just some things to consider.

WARRANTY:

There is a 2 year warranty on this mower for residential use. There is no warranty at all for commercial/professional use. Some other mowers do have warranties for commercial use, but are more limited than residential use.

SHIPPING:

Shipping is within the U.S., but may ship to select countries outside of the U.S.

Does The Greenworks Lawn Mower Pro GLM801602 Work As Advertised?

Does The Greenworks Lawn Mower Pro GLM801602 Work As Advertised?

Welcome to the GreenWorks Pro GLM801602 Electric Lawn Mower. It is cordless and comes with a battery and a charger.

GW Pro GLM801602

Greenworks Lawn Mower Pro GLM801602 PARTS: Quality?

This mower has a padded handle for comfort and it adjusts to 3 different heights. Not all electric mowers have that ability, so that’s pretty great. To turn the mower on, you just have to push the button and hold down the bar on the handle.

There is a 3-in-1 feature, which means it mulches, side discharges, or bags the grass for you. The bag is about 13 gallons in size, so you could say the size of a small trash bag. Most people mulch to nourish their lawns, so if you are going to do that, then you will most likely not need the bag anyway. If you don’t want to do either one, you can always let the grass fly out of the side of the mower and rake your yard.

The Greenworks Pro GLM801602 mower’s deck is steel, so you would have to make sure it’s protected from the weather. A lot of mowers are plastic, so if you want more durability, this would be a great purchase. The deck is 21” and the blade is 20”, so you will know exactly how wide your cutting path will be.

There are various height adjustments, with 3.5”-4” being the max height it will cut the grass with. A single lever on the side makes for easy adjustments.

POWER:

The Greenworks Lawn Mower Pro GLM801602 comes with a 80V, 4Ah lithium-ion rechargeable battery. There are other models with different battery power. One comes with two 2AH batteries (which is nice if you have a small yard, you can use the extra battery for another electric tool that is compatible), and the other comes with a 5Ah battery. Obviously, the higher the battery amp hours, the longer it will last. The battery for this model will last up to 60 minutes.

GW Pro GLM801602

A charger is included as well, usually taking about an hour to charge the 4Ah battery. If you bought the 2Ah package mower, it would take 30 minutes for each one.

The Pro GLM801602 has a brushless digital motor that is as powerful as a 160cc gas engine. Brushless motors are a smart tool because they sense how much power they need to put out at any given time. Regular brush motors run at the same speed the whole time.

GW Pro GLM801602

If you live in a state that gets cold weather, you will need to keep your battery charged to at least 50% if you are going to store it in your shed during the winter. The lower the charge, the more your battery will freeze and it will most likely be useless when you want to use it again.

Greenworks Lawn Mower Pro GLM801602 STORAGE:

The handle folds for easy, room saving storage, and the mower weighs 74 pounds. It’s one of the heaviest ones, so you may or may not need help putting it into storage.

WARRANTY:

There is a 4 year warranty on this mower for household use, and a one year warranty for commercial use. The battery and charger have a 2 year warranty.

SHIPPING:

This mower can only be shipped inside of the U.S. or to military addresses.

Worx Lawn Mower WG719 Review: Best Maneuverability?

Worx Lawn Mower WG719 Review: Best Maneuverability?

Welcome to the WORX WG719 caster wheeled electric lawn mower review! What makes the Worx lawn mower stand out from other electric lawn mowers is that it has a caster wheel design for terrificly easier maneuverability. Some people absolute LOVE this feature while others, not so much. Depending on your needs, this could be the perfect fit, so stick around and read the stats for the WG719 Worx lawn mower.

It’s gray, orange, and black, with the gray part being the steel deck. The other parts are made of durable plastic.

WORX WG719

Worx Lawn Mower PARTS:

The handle has a foam pad for comfortable, firm grip. There is a steel deck for added durability on a more rugged terrain, if that’s what you are dealing with. The caster wheels are provided for ease of movement, but if you don’t like how they move, you can always lock their position so they will only go straight. This mower also makes more noise than other mowers, but it still is not nearly as loud as a gas mower.

WORX WG719

The WG719 is a 3-in-1 lawn mower, meaning that it mulches, bags grass, or you can let the grass discharge off of the side like a regular mower. It’s always nice to have different choices of how to collect the grass you cut. Mulching means leaving finely shredded grass clippings on the lawn to fertilize the grass. That way you won’t have to build a compost pile or collect bags of grass, which saves you space AND extra work.

The blades are steel and there are 7 height adjustments that cut up to 4”. The cutting path is 19”, which is about the average, maybe a little higher than some mowers. There are plastic wheels on this mower, which should be alright in dry grass. They might have a harder time in wet grass as the grip might not be as strong.

POWER:

The WG719 does not have a battery, so you will need to buy an extension cord if you don’t already have one. The length of the cord will depend on the size of your yard, of course. You will need to make sure it’s at least 13 Amps, since that is what the mower requires. The power is average for these electric mowers. If you want to sometimes rely on a battery instead of using a cord, then you can opt to get a cordless mower instead.

How Easy Is The STORAGE/ASSEMBLY For WG719 Worx Lawn Mower:

This mower is easy to assemble, and you may not even need the instructions, just do it yourself. For storage, the handle folds in over the mower, creating more room for other things. Grass cutting should be effortless and the mower is great with thicker grass too.

WORX WG719

WEIGHT:

The mower is a little heavier at 57 pounds, but shouldn’t be too much of a problem if you are stronger physically or if you don’t have to lift it to put it in storage. There are other mowers that are lighter, some by about 20 pounds less. You might want to consider that if you have to lift it alone, or you can always have someone help.

WARRANTY:

There is a 3 year warranty for faulty parts, but you might need to register online for the third year of that warranty. Follow the link where you can find more information about the WG719 Worx lawn mower and even order one.

WORX WG789

This is the WORX WG789 36V cordless pacesetter self propelled electric lawn mower. It is made of both metal and plastic, which of course makes it stronger than just plastic. There are 6 mowing heights, from 1.5″-3.5″, all adjustable with a single lever. All 4 wheels are adjusted at the same time. It is 3-in-1, which means the grass can be mulched, discharged from the side, or bagged.

Some people have complained about these mowers being a little hard to push. Well, the WORX WG789 is self propelled! Self propelled mowers adjust to the speed at which you are walking, and all you have to do then is guide it without pushing. Much easier right?

The WORX WG789 is easy to assemble and should take you under 15 minutes to put it together, with easy instructions. The handlebar is fully collapsible for easy storage, and is wrapped in padded foam. Just push the button, squeeze the lever and you are ready to go. The more forward you push the handle, the faster the mower will go. It might take some getting used to, but after that it should be a breeze!

What is Intellicut Technology?

The WORX WG789 also comes with IntelliCut Technology. When some mowers come up on thicker or taller grass, they sometimes will shut off or have a very hard time getting through. But with IntelliCut, your mower will recognize this and will switch to a higher power when it needs to, to take care of that thicker grass without a problem. Pretty cool, huh? When the power comes on, it is more loud; however, this mower is 20 times more quieter than other mowers on regular power! So if you are close to your neighbors, they shouldn’t be bothered at all.

The battery is 36V, has a year warranty, is rechargable, and runs for about an hour. There is a battery charge indicator with 3 levels; just push the button on the battery so you know when the power is getting low and you need to charge it again. You can take the battery out of the mower to charge, if that is easier for you. It is lead, when most mowers come with a lithium battery. Lead batteries give you power quick when you need it, but might not last as long as a lithium. They also take longer to charge and might be heavier than a lithium battery.
