Best Corded Electric Lawn Mower
The GreenWorks 20-Inch 12 Amp Corded Electric Lawn Mower 25022 has no problem making the best corded electric lawn mower list. The Greenworks corded lawn mower is best suited for a small to medium sized yard. This mower would be great for people who live in town homes, condos, row homes, or even a single family house with a small lawn. I wouldn’t use this on a large piece of property with a lot of grass to cut.
Greenworks Corded Lawn Mower Features
- Power: 12 amps
- 20 inch steel deck
- Height Adjustment: 7 positions between 1 ½ to 3 ¾ inches
- Weight: 56 lbs.
- It has durable plastic wheels. The back wheels are 10 inches and the front wheels are 7 inches in diameter.
Keep in mind that this is not a self-propelled lawn mower so you will have to physically push it to make it go forward, however the Greenworks electric lawn mower has large rear wheels and is lightweight which makes it easier to push. If you have a hilly lawn it might be good exercise.
The Greenworks Corded Lawn Mower does not come with a power cord to plug into an outlet. You will need to either already own one or you will need to purchase one separately. Make sure the cord you own or the one you purchase is rated for a 12 amp device or higher, and make sure it is long enough that you will be able to mow your entire lawn. If you purchase a cord that is not rated for a 12 amp device you risk destroying the corded lawn mower.
You will save money on fuel cost and you don’t have to deal with gas smells or spills. You also don’t need to worry about ever changing the oil because there is none. You will not need to worry about recharging batteries or buying new batteries since this is all electric.
The Greenworks corded lawn mower offers three options for cutting grass. You can use the side discharge which will just throw the grass clipping out of the side of the mower onto your lawn. You can bag the clippings with a rear attachable bag. The third option which most people would probably like best is that the mower can mulch the grass clippings. Mulching mowers are so much easier to use if you prefer not having to worry about dealing with grass clippings either scattered all over the lawn or in a bag.
The Greenworks corded lawn mower is very compact. You can fold the handlebars down over top of the mower which will save a lot of space when not in use or when storing over the winter months. This is definitely a good feature to have if your storage space is limited to begin with.
Since the GreenWorks 20-Inch 12 Amp Corded Electric Lawn Mower 25022 uses a cord you want to be very careful to avoid running over the cord. Since this is an electric mower it is probably best not to use the mower unless the grass is totally dry. You wouldn’t want to risk some kind of electric shock from using the mower on damp or wet grass. Cutting damp grass is also a hassle, which makes a mess and can clog up any mower, even a self propelled gas powered lawn mower.
Greenworks also has a great string trimmer that made it onto our top 5 Best Weed Eater list as well.
