Sun Joe MJ401C 14-Inch 28-Volt Cordless
It has been awhile since I reviewed the Sun Joe MJ40E which was an electric corded mower. The MJ401E is a small, lightweight, and affordable lawn mower. Sun Joe has basically made the MJ40E cordless with this MJ401C. I can understand why, since the MJ401E is still one of the most popular lawn mowers. With this cordless version, I am sure Sun Joe will have a new best seller!
The 28-volt lithium-ion battery (4Ah)… is fixed to the mower, which is not ideal in more than one way. Instead of bringing the battery to the power outlet, you need to bring the whole lawn mower to a power outlet. A removable battery would make charging a lot easier.
I had set the cutting height to the middle position, which would mean the mower had to cut about an inch of grass. The first pass I made was neatly and evenly trimmed, however the second pass did not get the same results. The mower struggled a bit more and the cut was uneven. I checked the bag, and surely it was full.
Greenworks 19-Inch 40V Cordless Lawn Mower
Cordless electric lawn mowers, as the name imply, do not have cords or wires that are plugged into an electric outlet for power. This type of lawn mower is powered by a battery which allows the machine to easily move and maneuver. However, the batteries need frequent charging after an hour or so of use. This makes the machine advisable for small to medium-sized lawns.
Using a cordless battery-powered lawn mower… saves you from the hassles of dealing with smelly gasoline and smelly oil. You can work safely without working about harmful air pollutants as the machine do not produce carbon emissions. Also, there is no need to bother yourself with spark plugs and air filters.
Another great advantage of electric-powered lawn mowers is that they are a lot cheaper compared to gas-powered units. Also, the cost of electricity to recharge the machine’s battery cost less compared to the high cost of gasoline. Other overhead expenses included in using a gas-powered lawn mower include oil change, spark plugs, and air filters.
EGO Power+ 20-Inch 56-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Lawn Mower
The Ego Power+ is considered as the most advanced battery-operated lawn mower in the market. Its durability, endurance and speed make it a worthwhile purchase for homeowners. Its long battery life can get your job done with a single charge.
The Ego Power + has a pretty impressive… battery life which provides long-lasting power. It delivers the performance capabilities of superior gas-powered mower without the drawbacks of noise, spill and mess. It is certainly way ahead of other brands with its 56-volt lithium ion battery.
Greenworks PRO 21-Inch 80V Cordless Lawn Mower
The GreenWorks Pro 80V cordless lawn mower is a good mower for homeowners with mid- or large-size flat lawns, and the included second battery is a great value.
At first glance, the GreenWorks Pro 80V,… 21-inch cordless lawn mower looks like a racecar with its angled design and large wheels, and although it looks bulky, it is easy to maneuver. The mower is made from a tough polymer that can take a beating while producing zero emissions, and it does this without tying you down with an electrical cord.
The wide cutting deck allows you to mow your lawn efficiently by cutting down on the number of passes required to mow it. There is also a height-adjustment lever that lets you choose from seven cutting heights, allowing you to give your lawn a smooth, polished, even look.
WORX 14-Inch 24-Volt Cordless Lawn Mower
The WORX WG775 cordless electric lawn mower has everything going for it when compared to other mowers. It’s not gas-powered, so there’s no need to worry about fuel, oil, spark plugs, and filters.
It’s an electric mower and runs… on a 24-volt rechargeable battery–which gives you about 30 minutes of mowing time (one-fourth of an acre)–so you don’t have to worry about purchasing, handling, or maneuvering around an awkward extension cord.
Admittedly, the 30-minute run time WILL be too short for some yards, so keep that in mind if you have a medium- or large-sized yard. If that’s the case, you’ll be charging the battery multiple times.
Sun Joe iON16LM 40 V 16-Inch Cordless Lawn Mower
The cordless electric mower is easy to assemble straight out of the packaging and for a change it is nice to see a really detailed manual. Sun Joe engineers really don’t want to leave anything to chance with their creation. From attaching the handles, preparing for the first run, you probably won’t need more than 10 minutes. Something really nice with the Sun Joe is the rechargeable 40 Volt battery that comes fully charged in the sealed packaging! So once assembled you are ready to rumble.
Choosing height, starting the machine,… pushing it across your yard, cleaning the rear bag out are all super easy with this mower. The only problem I have with the Sun Joe iON16LM is the really small deck size coupled with the inability to mulch or side-discharge. This would have been a minor nag had the rear bag been better made. Quality isn’t an issue rather it is the fitting. The rear bag has a small gap with the mower’s rear which tends to shoot grass clippings upwards and clutter the lawn a bit. This happens only with empty bags and it stops once the bag has collected at least 1/4th its capacity.
BLACK+DECKER CM1640 16-Inch Cordless Mower
The Black & Decker CM1640 cordless electric mower comes pretty much pre-assembled with the handles neatly packaged alongside and being the only components that need your LEGO expertise. No need for directions really when trying to bolt them straight up although, the picture steps do help in this process.The first thing you will notice is that this mower comes with 2 batteries, each 40 Volt Lithium Ion but a single charger.
The idea is to always keep both charged… and to use one while charging the other. Each battery lasts about 20-25 minutes, making this the best electric lawn mower for small yards. After inserting one of the batteries, starting the mower is really easy and done with just a push of a button.Adjusting the height is a matter of locking the selection lever to the left side of the mower in an appropriate gear.
This simultaneously raises all the wheels and the same goes for the handles that fold down on the mower with two joint breaks helping store this mower much simpler. Besides, being a cordless electric mower, it can stand straight with the handles tucked in and still come out all guns blazing when needed, unlike gas mowers that can’t be stored in any orientation that may risk flooding of the engines. To start it, there is a big red button that powers up the blades and you are good to go.
