If you have a small to medium sized garden a corded electric lawn mower is a great choice. They are affordable, lightweight and start every time.
A corded electric mower is actually the cheapest option if you want a powered mower. It cost a lot less compared to a cordless or gas powered mower and the running and maintenance costs are minimal. You will never run out of gas or battery power as long as your cord is long enough.
I have picked out three great electric mowers that are all sturdy and cuts evenly to a reasonable price.
The first and smallest one is the Earthwise 50214. This light and compact mower is best suited for small lawns. The 14 inch cutting width and lightweight construction makes it perfect for tight spots where larger mower would be hard to maneuver. The deck is made of dual layered plastic which makes it rigid and sturdy.
The 8 Amp electric motor does a great job mowing both thick and tall grass. The grass clippings can either be discharged to the side or mulched. Unfortunately this mower doesn’t have the ability to bag the clippings.
One of the things I like most about this mower is the height adjustment. With a single lever you can change the cutting height on all four wheels from 1 ½” to 4” in literally 2 seconds. The 4 inch cutting height makes this mower able to handle overgrown yards very well.
If your lawn is small and you don’t usually bag you clippings I think this is a really great mower. The Earthwise 50214 is easy to maneuver, well-built and when you look at the price it shouldn’t be hard to decide.
The Greenworks 25142 is a neat electric push lawn mower which really shows its potential when you have to maneuver around obstacles. The 16 inch swath makes it best suited for small lawns, but it can handle medium sized lawns as well. The 6 inch front wheels and 7 inch rear wheels makes the mower ride smoothly over an uneven lawn.
You can choose to either mulch or bag the clippings. The mower barely leaves any clippings behind and the bag doesn’t clog up when it is only half full like most do. The bag is not large so it get full pretty fast, but emptying it is quick and easy.
The cutting height can be adjusted to 5 different positions which range from 5/8” to 2 5/8”. The single lever operation adjusts all four wheels at the same time and is both fast and easy. With this Greenworks 25142 you get great value for your money.
The last one is the Greenworks 25022 which is the one with the largest cutting width. The 20 inch swath let you mow your lawn efficiently with fewer sweeps. The 12 amp electric motor has plenty of power to handle the tougher spots.
The rear wheels on this Greenworks 25022 are maybe the largest I have seen on a push mower. The 10” rear wheels and 7” front wheels make this mower roll easily over any humps or bumps. Maneuvering this mower is also easy and I had no problems steering around trees, bushes or other obstacles in my yard.
The cutting height can of course be adjusted and the height ranges from 1 ½” and all the way up to 3 ¾”. The height is adjusted by a spring-loaded lever which makes it both fast and effortlessly to change the height. Choose to bag, mulch or discharge the clippings to the side with this great electric mower.
