1. Greenworks 14-Inch 9 Amp Corded Electric Lawn Mower With Extra Blade.
This mower chopped through my tall grass like soft butter,” writes a happy shopper. A first-time owner of a mowing machine also compared her experience to cutting butter, saying, “This is the first time I’ve ever cut a lawn myself, it was amazing and easy. I am a 5-foot female. This lawn mower cut my grass like a knife through butter. I had tall grass with flowers and it’s been raining a lot so I haven’t had the chance to cut it. I also have a large backyard.” She calls the whole experience “a breeze.”
2. Greenworks 16-Inch 10 Amp Corded Lawn Mower.
This lawn mower offered a first foray into electric mowing for many experienced self-mowers. One reviewer who has been mowing his lawn for over 60 years and calls himself a “stubborn old guy,” is “never going back” to gas after trying this. He says, “Things which are easier with this mower than my old gas mower include: lighter, much less vibration, much quieter, much easier to start, no gas, no oil, no air filter, no tuneups. Best of all, it completely eliminates the need for any sweeping (or dreadful leaf blowing) along walkways, streets, or driveways; the mower vacuums everything up, leaving the area perfectly clean and manicured, like the lawn just walked out of a barbershop.
3. Greenworks PRO 21-Inch 80V Brushless Self-Propelled Cordless Lawn Mower.
Many originally purchased this mower because of its ability to self-propel. One, who says this mower “worked like a champ,” notes, “the self-propelled mode is great, especially if you are not strong enough to push it up an incline. Others love how quiet it is, like one who says that feature is “great when you don’t want to make a racket or are cutting the grass at a not-so-appropriate time of the day (really early or late). For the ease of use, no longer needing to mess with gas and oil, the cutting performance, and the fact that the battery system is interchangeable with plenty of other Greenworks lawn tools, this was a no-brainer for me.”
4. Snapper XD 82V MAX Electric Cordless 21-Inch Self-Propelled Lawnmower Kit.
Dozens of reviewers commented how pleasantly surprised they were with the long battery life on this electric mower. One who, says this mower “feels like a gas mower,” says that the batteries are “a very good size, and have a real good quality heft to them, along with a little button to show you how much power is left. There are two of them, and they charge in less than 30 mins. And by the way, the battery does not slowly lose power and then slowly taper off to a barely spinning blade. It goes full strength until it’s depleted. I really like that.”
5. EGO Power+ LM2000-S 20-Inch 56-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Walk Behind Lawn Mower.
Over a dozen reviewers called this mower “the Tesla of lawn mowers,” because it’s not only electric, but it’s also the most high-quality mower many have experienced. One who admits he actually owns two Teslas writes, “I’ve learned to hate gas fumes, oil changes and the sound of a combustion engine. That being said, this mower is awesome. Very quiet. Always starts. Even has headlights so you can mow at night. It mulches grass, sticks and leaves very well and I’ve never needed the bag.” The eco-friendly aspect became the biggest seller for reviewers, but most fell in love with how quiet and strong it is.
