These lawn mowers are the most popular at moment and might give you some ideas what to look for. Check out the top ten best-selling lawn mower of 2015 below.
1. GreenWorks 25022
This is the second year in a row that the GreenWorks 25022 is on top of the best-selling list. There are several reason for that. This electric lawn mower has a powerful 12 Amp motor that can handle challenging conditions, like thick and wet grass, without problems. Four large wheels ensures that the mower is easy to maneuver and push. It has also been given a Great Value Award.
2. Black & Decker MTE912
The Black & Decker MTE912 is a versatile gardening tool; it can be used as a lawn mower, a string trimmer and an edger. It is basically a string trimmer that you can attach to a base with four wheels. This multi-tool is great for people with a small yard and don’t want to invest several different gardening tools. However, it works great as a string trimmer and an edger, but falls short as a lawn mower.
3. GreenWorks 25142
The GreenWorks 25142 is an electric mower with a 10 Amp motor. The cutting width of 16 inches makes this mower suitable for small to medium sized lawns. Either mulch the clippings to fine pieces or bag them. You can change the cutting height easily to 5 different positions with just one lever, ranging from 5/8” to 2 5/8”.
4. GreenWorks 25302
The GreenWorks 25302 Twin Force G-MAX is an advanced cordless lawn mower. It has two cutting blades of 10 inches each driven by an electric motor. This gives you a cutting swath of 20 inches. The dual battery design has an impressive run time of 70 minutes. The mower has of course an easy height adjustment and bagging and mulching capability. A truly great cordless mower, but pricy.
5. Fiskars 6201
The Fiskars 6201 ShaySharp Max is a modern push reel mower with neat features. The inset wheel design allows the 18 inch reel to extend across the full width of the mower. Fiskars has invented something they call InertiaDrive that makes the mower very easy to push. Adjust the cutting height by using the lever, which allows you to choose between 9 different positions ranging from 1 inch to 4 inches. If you want a cutting-edge (pun intended) reel mower, Fiskars 6201 is the mower for you.
6. Scotts 2000
The Scott 2000 is a push reel lawn mower with an impressive 20 inch cutting width. Even though it has a large swath, it is surprisingly easy to push and maneuver thanks to the large 10 inch wheels. The heat-treated steel blades on the reel cut through thick grass with ease. However, it will struggle if the grass gets too tall, as all reel mower do. The cutting height can easily be adjusted from a fine 1” cut to a lush 3” cut.
7. Worx WG775
The Worx WG775 is a neat, little cordless lawn mower that would fit perfect for people with small yard. The 24 volt battery pack let you cut up to 6,000 sq. ft. in one charge (about 30 minutes). I wish the wheels were a bit larger, but the mower is still easy to maneuver. It might not look like much, but it is well built and a great choice for small gardens.
8. Sun Joe MJ401E
The Sun Joe MJ401E is a nice little electric lawn mower with 12 Amp motor. The motor will cut down the grass that comes within its 14” swath as long as it is not too tall. The mower is light and very easy to maneuver around objects and tight corner. However, it is mainly made of plastic and seems to me a bit flimsy. It is obviously a popular mower since it is on this list, but I would probably gone for the GreenWorks 25142 instead.
9. Husqvarna 5521P
The gas powered Husqvarna 5521P has a 140CC Briggs & Stratton engine that packs plenty of power. The engine is also CARB compliant. This mower has a 3-in-1 feature that allows for rear bagging, side discharge or mulching. Adjust the cutting height on all four wheels, which can be adjusted to as low as 1.25” up to 3.4”.
10. Great States 204-14
The Great States 204-14 is a classic reel mower with its tested and proved great design. The reel has a 14 inch width and with alloy steel and bed knife blades. You can change the cutting height from ½”to 1 ½”. The 8 ½” wheels make this mower ride over an uneven lawn with ease. This mower is made in the USA.
