    Works like a charm

    I’ve had a Ryobi BMM2400 Muchinator since the mid-90’s when they first came out so I am definitely a supporter of cordless electric mowers. I was just getting time to change the batteries again and had to weigh a couple hundred dollars for batteries (the good ones anyway), or head down a new path with Lithium-Ion. My last mower has been used on many sized lawns through numerous moves in multiple states, but we barely have any grass now so a smaller, lighter mower seems like a great option.Unfortunately, I received the mower with a bent rear axle (one wheel pointing off to the side a bit) and wrote to greenworks customer service on their web site. I haven’t found a time when I can call that they were open to actually talk to someone (assuming they answer), but so far it’s been a few weeks with no reply. If I don’t hear from them I’ll probably just disassemble it and bend it straight myself. So far, it’s the principle of the whole thing.I did like that they have all the parts broken out on their website so down the road you can order replacements and install them yourself.One thing to note about their website; if you register your product, the model number is wrong. It thinks you have a plugin mower and if you look at the right product (16 inch / 40 volt) it says the model number is 25242 on the product page — but it’s not. The model number on the owners manual and on the mower is the same as the one in the product listing, 25322.[edit]I took the wheels off to lube them (and all the other moving parts) with synthetic spray grease and used a BMF adjustable wrench to gently clamp the axle and bend it straight. A pretty easy task, I was mostly concerned about breaking some of the plastic mounting points but there was no issue with that. Once I did all this the mower worked great. It is so light and rolls so easily that it almost mows the yard itself.A side note, I never heard anything back from the GreenWorks customer “support” so I’ll echo the sentiments of many other reviewers in saying that they are nonexistent and obviously care nothing about the people that are buying their products. Just another company that slaps up a website, makes a product, and once they have your money they couldn’t care less about you.Bumped it up to 4 stars (I know it doesn’t average out, but the overall product is good): – 5 stars for the product – 3 stars for quality control – 0 stars for customer support

    Great mower!

    I absolutely love it, the battery last more than 45mins. Easy on and off button and light enough for me to push and pull and also easy to assemble. I am 125lbs so purchasing a light weight mower was super important. Cuts through grass/weeds smoothly and easy to clean bag. It is on the smaller size but it gets the job done!

    Good for a Small Yard

    It’s light & I throw this in my truck when I go to a property that needs a quick mow. It runs out of juice in about 12-15 but I have plenty of the 40v batteries. 16″ doesn’t cut much but it is great in a pinch for a small property. Keeping the blade sharp is easy if you throw it up on a table or tailgate (no oil to leak).The reason for 4 Stars is the handle collapsability, it’s not very convenient. When I throw it in a vehicle, it stores nicely in a contractor trash bag when collapsed (keeping everything clean). But to collapse the handle, the handle pivot configuration & locking mechanisms are frustrating. It’s surprising Greenworks would make a nice little mower and cheap out on the handle breakdown for storage & transport.One modification I made that has been convenient is to remove the battery lock on the mower. It was frustrating for me to remove the battery prior to this change. I see no safety nor operating decline by making this mod. In fact if the mower were to tip over, you would want the mower to shut down, assuming the battery would drop out. The battery seats securely and the door encloses the battery anyway. The mod is to use a utility knife to remove the white plastic piece on the mower that engages the battery lock spring (don’t modify the battery).

    Never thought I’d say I love a lawn mower …

    And I’m not going to say it now, but I really do LIKE this lawn mower.I’m in my early 70s, arthritic, painful knees, iffy ankles … and I’d been fairly happily paying someone else to mow my lawn. Then I discovered battery operated mowers (no more gas cans! No more scary pulling on the string!) and decided to check them out. This one was recommended for older Americans, so I got it.It was NOT easy for me to set up; in fact, my brother had to set it up and even he found it confusing, and I’m still not happy with the angle of the handle. But it’s lightweight, it’s easy to maneuver, and it’s quiet. Not whisper quiet; I’d call it a muted growl. I doubt if anyone beyond my immediate, very next-door neighbors ever hear it.It’s a pretty nice mower, especially if you’re older. And I figure it will have paid for itself by the end of August, because I’m no longer paying someone else to do it. Win/win!

    feels like about 35 lbs

    I got this after trying the same one a friend owned. It does the job! I have a small-ish lot, about 1/4 acre with a 2600 sq ft house footprint and 3 car driveway on it, so I have a relatively small front yard and an ok size back yard. The lawnmower itself is very light … feels like about 35 lbs. It has a handle that lets me carry it between the back and front (steel hill of rock between them, so I needed this feature), and the battery easily lasts two full mowings. I get to about 50% after mowing once, and if I go mow again shortly after, I still make it through.The deck height adjustment works easily and quickly. I keep mine at the “4” level, which gives me about 2.5″ of grass (it seems). Would have been nice if those levels meant something, but not a huge gripe.If you are cutting very thick grass or cutting more than two inches off of your grass (especially in “mulch” mode), the motor will sense the slowdown (which you’ll hear) and it will speed up. This drains your battery /much/ faster. I found I could only cut my back yard when I skipped two weeks and came out and cut about 2.5 inches off the top (we were on a trip and I forgot about it). Unless that’s normal for you, though, no need for a second battery.The mulching feature works ok, but not great. It probably cuts up the grass into two or three chunks, but certainly isn’t doing a “fine” mulch. I still use that most of the time. The bag also is just “ok” as grass likes to get stuck flowing into the bag and I can only ever fill up about half the catcher before the mower starts leaving huge clumps all over. All of this is because of the blade itself (I believe). It’s not sloped as much as a gas blade, so it probably doesn’t “suck up” the grass and clippings and create the force of wind pushing the grass into the bag, either. This is probably so the battery doesn’t drain as fast, but it does cause the two above problems as well as a problem where it may not “pick up” grass that’s fallen slightly over … you might have to stand up those kinds of clumps of grass by hand (or with a rake) and re-mow. But with the ease of turning the mower on and off, you can just let up the power handle after you go over one of those clumps, straighten the grass, easily turn the motor back on, and mow over it. Not a huge problem, and if that’s the solution that means I can fully cut a lawn twice my size on one charge, it’s probably a good compromise.

    This mower is a beast!

    I have had the Greenworks 40V mower for about 3 years and it is still performing flawlessly. I use it to cut my yard, which is about 1/6 of an acre. Depending on how high I let the grass gets between mows, it’ll sometimes do the entire yard on one charge, but it’s no problem to wait the ~2 hours to let the battery recharge fully to finish up. Part of my property is kind of bumpy/brambly/rugged and this thing takes the knocks with no problem at all. It chews up small sticks and random weeds without complaining. It is a lot less noisy than a gas powered mower, too.The battery is still as good as the first time I used it. I have accidentally left it on the charger overnight a couple of times and this has not damaged it in the least. That was a complaint sometime back, so I suppose there is an auto-stop on the charger when the process is complete.Glad to recommend!

    A worthy battery powered cordless electric mower

    Having had experience with another brand’s 14″ electric mower (battery powered) and needing to return it because of child’s toy-like features, I was quite pleased with the GreenWorks model. It does take a bit longer than a gas powered or wired electric mower but is simple and easy to use.Pros:Changing the height is a single lever that is reminiscent of an automatic floor shifter in an automobile. By far the easiest adjustment I have ever encountered in any lawnmower ever! REALLY.Decent power for a battery operated mower. You may need to slow down your cutting speed from a gas powered unit but it is light and easy to use. For a smaller lawn 1,500 square feet or so with many trees to mow around, I have never used up the battery. The 40 V lithium gets recharged relatively quickly, pops into the mower, and away you go. No rags, no grime, no problem. Reduces space needed to store lawn mower and ancillary equipment (you can hang on wall without gas and oil dripping into your garage).Clean, effortless, and without the smell.Lime green color glows in the dark and you can find it if you forget it on your lawn at 2:00 AM. (okay, it doesn’t glow, but it comes close…)Cons:If you are a real he-man, then perhaps you want the smell of gas and oil in your garage, spark plugs to change, and air filters to maintain. BUT, if you have an attached garage and want the clean/green life, this isn’t a bad option at all.This definitely is not made to mulch tree stumps, but is useful for a mostly manicured lawn. I suggest going around stumps and not trying to grind them down with this mower.Plastic cutting deck is tough but not metal. I would have liked this in a metal deck but it is lighter and easy to maneuver in plastic.Conclusion:I believe this is the lowest cost of a REAL battery powered cordless lawnmower that actually works to cut your lawn. The 16″ wide cutting swatch is a little narrow but gives a little more cutting effort when your lawn is thicker than a wider mower would offer. I would recommend this as long as the buyer is aware that the mower is significantly less powerful than gas but worth the reduced smell and without dragging a cord around the yard. I was unhappy with my previous battery powered lawn mower by a different brand, but am happy with this unit. Good luck.

    Easy unboxing, Straight forward setup. Easy to use!!!

    The media could not be loaded.

     The main issue I had at first- was the speed setting of the mower wasn’t working. After charging the battery and using the charge completely & running it for at least a half hour it seems fine. If I have any more issues I’ll contact Amazon again. I did call them today & the customer service representative was super helpful and offered a replacement immediately; However, instead of boxing it up & sending it back I’m going with it & will probably purchase the next size-up because it’s sort of a smaller mowing deck a size 16″.I could have gotten a full-size mower for maybe $50 more but I wasn’t confident about the power. But amazingly its pretty good! I’ve had multiple Greenworks products in the past & honestly I’m super impressed. They’re quiet, easy to use, most are lightweight and durable!! Everyone stares at me when I’m using the products & they sometimes laugh & point when they drive by because the products are small, but the results have them baffled because I know my yard looks professionally groomed!! LoL.Thanks Greenworks 🍀 I’ll let you know how your other products I ordered this season work out for me!

    Torn between two mowers (for 16 inch version)

    This mower is replacing my 18″ inch Honda Harmony self propelled. Bottom line if you are a person who procrastinates and waits for your lawn to get high before mowing this is not for you. The larger models or other brands may provide more power. This is strictly for the 16 inch with the 4 AH battery.I used this 5 times so far. I have about 1200 square feet of lawn. The first time I used it the grass was wet and I took off about two inches. It didn’t do a great job and the battery died with about 150 square feet left. After 30 minutes on the charger it was enough to finish the job.Since that time I have only mowed when it was fairly dry and taken half an inch to an inch off and it is working fine. In Seattle if you wait for dry grass it will be 6 inches before you mow.Pros:Super light – I don’t miss the self propelled feature (my lawn is perfectly flat)Super easy to start – My 4th grade son has taken over the lawn mowing since he can push a button and go. He has no problem pushing it.No gas.Enough charge to do the entire lawn (if you are not taking off too much and the grass is fairly dry). bagging has no affect.Very quietOne lever to adjust the heightDid I say my kids can do the mowing now!Easy to clean, not a lot of cracks and crevices for grass to get stuck. bottom of deck is smooth and easy to wipe cleanCons:Narrow compared to the standard 18 and 21 inch mowers so not a good choice for a big lawn.Does not mulch well. If you take more than half an inch off and do not bag you will see clippingsDoes not bag well when taking off more than an inch.Bag is small so will have to empty more often compared to the standard gas mowerOn average I spend an extra 10% more time mowing now than before which is fine with me. As the days get warmer and the grass is dryer and I leave the clippings on the grass the mow time will be equal.I wish I bought the larger size but can live with this especially now that my kids can do the mowing.

    Easy to use

    I’ve been skeptical about these battery operated machines, including chainsaws an lawnmowers.Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always been used to gas powered machines and the smell of oil and gas burning it’s just something I enjoy. But like everything else now, including cars, are becoming all battery powered.Well the wife had been nagging me about the leaves on the front yard and since my gas lawnmower was out of commission, it was my excuse not to do it.The whole reason I got this lawnmower was because of my sister, I went to her house one day and there she was, mowing her lawn. Hers was wider and had a push assist so she wouldn’t struggle with it.I was curious so I finished the mowing for her, it was a weird experience as it never had to be filled with gas, just swamped the battery and away I went.-so if you have a small yard this is the way to go-you can mulch or use the included bag to pick up your trimmings-no gas mess or oils mess-no string pulling nightmare, just push a button pull lever and go-its not that lightweight, but if you have to flip it on its side you can without worrying about gas or oil spilling out.—i recommend getting a push assist one and an extra battery in case you forget to charge it.I can trust my kids with this one since once you let go of the lever it stops and there is no chance of them burning with a hot motor(like the gas ones)……..maybe someone or this company can come up with some kind of docking station for this machine, that way I can just store it properly with it’s accessories.

    Love this lawnmower

    Finally convinced a family member to get an electric lawnmower and they love it. They had to admit the challenges of a gas powered one especially when trying to operate it and takes up a lot of space in my utility room. This electric lawnmower is easy to start and doesn’t take up a lot of space. The battery does run 30 mins without shutting off the mower if you have a lot of mowing and it can cover a lot of yard space.

    My lawn guys don’t own me any longer!

    I live in Coastal Florida & during our rainy season you must mow your yard weekly due to drainage & HOA regulations. I had a lawn service for 12 years that I loved. They knew my yard, were responsible, didn’t tear up stuff & were reasonable. He retired & sold his business. Long story short I’ve had 5 different yard companies out & they all promise they will mow weekly, their equipment does mulch the grass, they edge & weed whack up agst the fence. Everyone wanted twice what my previous guy wanted & I realized okay, I will have to budget that in. Not one of them mowed it each week. Some went as long as 3 weeks. Now my front yard, that’s okay, but not my backyard. I have a drainage system in the backyard, put in by professionals that pulls the rainwater literally to my front curb, into the city sewer system. It is magnificent! But if you don’t mow & mulch weekly you will spend hours unclogging it, which I’ve never had to do before. Finally, I could not take the stress any longer. I’m 65 years old & never dreamed in a million years that I would be mowing my backyard myself. This thing is light. It’s easy to push. It mulches. I love this thing! I actually love mowing my backyard because it’s small. I have nicknamed it Barbie. Now I have a yard group I like & if they come they mow my backyard or I go out & mow it every 5 days with Barbie. My yard is so small, I can get it done on 1/2 the battery charge. I’m sitting out back admiring my yard & feel so good that my life is not controlled by my lawn maintenance. I think I’m going to go get Barbie & take her for a spin around the backyard. Oh, Barbie doesn’t get grass in the pool, either. Ladies, if you’ve got the space, get this, it’s empowering!

    Beat my expectations

    I have been using a Fiskars reel mower to mow my lawn and have been happy with it, but its downside is it doesn’t cut well if the grass gets too tall (which happens fast in Alaska with the summer daylight). Also, in the spring time it does nothing toward getting old, stray leaves up off the lawn. As a result, several times a year I would have to borrow a gas lawn mower to get my lawn back in shape, which could then be kept up with my reel mower. You can only borrow a mower so often before it becomes too often.I am not an environmentalist against using gasoline, but I really don’t like gas powered yard equipment. They are loud, dirty, vibrate, require a fair amount of time for maintenance, and you have to keep gas at the ready in gas cans that you can only fill at the gas station. They are a pain. Their plus side is they have power.Because of my dislike of gas yard equipment, last year when I needed a weed-eater, I ended up getting a Greenworks lithium powered one and it has been great! I have been so impressed with it, when I decided this year that I really need my own standard mower, I looked into GreenWorks offerings. They sell other mowers with different batteries, but I highly recommend to never buy anything that isn’t lithium. You’ll just end up spending more when whatever inferior battery type you went with dies, and you end up buying the expensive lithium one anyway. I’ve learned this from personal experience on a wide range of products.They also offer some larger sizes of lithium mower, but for my purposes, I figured the small one should be fine. I still plan to use the reel mower as my primary.When I ordered this I was apprehensive that it might be a bit small and rinky-dink. When it arrived however, I was actually surprised at the size and quality. It certainly isn’t a big mower, but I wouldn’t consider it at all small either. It is bigger than I expected a 16″ mower to be. The quality also appears to be very good. The whole design seems well though out. The handle has quick releases that with a simple twist allow you to fold it up over the mower, which as a carry-handle built in at the center of gravity so you can easily pick the whole thing up to store it some where.I was also concerned about the power of the mower when I ordered it. My lithium weed eater has tons, but this was a lawn mower I planned to use only when the grass was overgrown. Well, the power has exceeded my expectations too. I mowed weeds in the driveway that were around 18″ tall and it had no trouble. I mowed my lawn that had grown so long the grass was starting to go to seed. It didn’t slow down at all. In fact, it wasn’t even straining (when it does get strained, it increases the power and you hear the mower speed up). I did have to do multiple passes to get it all clean and neatly cut, but I’ve had to do that with a gas mower too.I’ve used it to bag, which works great, and I’ve also used it as a mulcher without the bag and that works great too. It does not seem to have as much suction as some gas mowers, but it has enough for me.The battery takes a while to charge when fully empty (a couple hours maybe, I wasn’t really paying attention, but it didn’t seem terribly long), but it then runs the mower for a long time. I can easily mow both my front and back lawns with charge left over on what I guess is a fairly standard city lot size.The biggest downside I can think of in the long run is the battery will probably wear out long before a gas mower’s engine would, but then I can just buy another battery for far less money than I would have spent on gas in that time and even if it did end up costing me a bit more, I’d happily pay it to use this mower over a noisy, vibrating, gas one.Speaking of noisy, I didn’t mention how quiet this thing is. It sounds about like a box fan set on high and it has absolutely no vibration.Overall I am very impressed with this mower and if you’re on the fence about it, I’d recommend you get it. It isn’t cheap, but neither is the cheapest gas mower when you factor in that it costs $20 every time you fill a gas can. This mower uses about 2 cents worth of electricity for a full battery charge, by my rough calculation.

    Feels like a toy – but it’s not

    I was finally able to take my new mower out for a spin today after a couple of days of rain. My grass didn’t really need mowing, but I wanted to mulch the leaves that had settled on it. My first impression was that the mower felt like a toy. I was used to a 21″ 6HP Craftsman gas mower that I had had for at least 15 years. The electric mower definitely did not have as much power as the gas mower, and the 16″ width meant I had to make more passes. But it was so light and maneuverable that it was truly fun to use. And quiet. And no gas to mess with. And started with a simple push of a button. No more pulling and pulling. I doubt that it was as brutale on the fallen leaves as my old gas mower, but it did mulch the larger ones, and the few clumps of grass that were still sticking up were cut nice and clean. After mowing I was able to just turn the mower on its side and use my compressed air to clean the under side. With the gas mower I could only hold the handle down with some weights and try to get up under the deck to clean it out. With gas and oil in it turning it on its side was not possible. There was still life left in the battery when I finished my yard, so I went next door and started in on their yard. Much to my regret, I didn’t time how long the battery lasted until it quit. Next time I am getting out the timer. But I was not beat when I was done, like I would have been with the gas mower. The most difficult aspect of the mower is removing the battery. Other than that, I am pleased with the purchase.

    GREAT in most conditions, weak only in the very poorest conditions

    UPDATE: I’m going to bump my review up to 4 STARS (from 3). Yes, it was a weak on my first test because, as I said in the review below, the grass was wet and had been allowed to get way too long and thick – conditions that would even cause the gas mower a little hesitation (just not as much). Today was my second use with the lawn being in “typical” condition. The mower was delight – easy to use, cut neatly and quickly, and this time I put the grass catcher on correctly (!) and it worked BEAUTIFULLY, easily catching 90% of the trimmings. And I don’t smell like gas. If it holds up, this mower will be a great purchase… as long as I avoid wet, month-long growth!UPDATE to the UPDATE: After a full season with this mower, I can heartily recommend it. Mowing is a breeze and it has performed flawlessly. Even my wife and daughter who had refused to mow the lawns now no longer have an excuse(!) and they really like it.Original review:PROS: * Set up was easy, just unfold the arms and tighten them down, charge the battery and insert. Insert the catch bag. * Maneuvers more easily than a heavy gas mower * Lithium-ion batteries should last longer and are lighter than lead-acid * No gas! No going to the gas station! Nor you do you smell like exhaust afterwards – just a little grassy! * Charges in 1 to 2 hours * Battery holds up pretty well – no cords! (really think about how annoying a cord would be going back and forth) * FAR quieter than gasCONS: * Definitely weaker than a gas engine * A bit pricey * Long term durability in question * Takes longer because footprint is smaller, and you have to go slower in tough conditions * Not good for huge lawnsNEITHER HERE NOR THERE: * Mower is relatively light – half the weight of a conventional gas mower, but also mostly plastic. There’s little to rust, but I wonder how durable it will be, especially those kinda cheap wheels that love to get jammed between the lawn and the cement edges. * Looks ridiculous. Like a kiddie version of a street racer from Fast and Furious. It’s almost embarrassing to push this thing around the front yard. 😉 Then again, you might think it looks pretty cool.Okay, so how well does it work?Today was kind of “worst case”. The lawn was longer than normal (because the gas mower broke and it took me a week to get around to ordering this replacement) AND about 50% of the lawn was thick and QUITE WET. These are challenging conditions to be sure, but the gas mower would have handled them with only minor problem. This little guy really struggled with the longer, wetter grass. I had to go slower, and frequently back-off or lift off to keep from bogging down the motor. It quit on me once, but started right up again. I think I could have done the front lawn in about 5 minutes using the gas mower, but this took me about 12 minutes (UPDATE: second time, in normal conditions, it took about 7 minutes). With these conditions, I really questioned whether the battery was going to hold out for the 25 minutes or so that it would take to do my <1000 square feet of lawn, but it did. It still reported about a one-third charge upon completion.In the patches of lawn that were neither especially long, thick or wet, the mower flew over them with absolute ease.SO... if you frequently encounter EXTREME conditions (extra long, thick or wet grass) I'd advise you to stick with gas. This one will get the job done, but there's just no comparison to the power of an internal combustion engine.BUT... if you have a modestly sized lawn, and do not mow it wet and crazy long, then I think you will LOVE this mower. I'm looking forward to trying it again under better conditions so I can confirm this and report back to you.

    So far so great…

    My opinion might be somewhat biased because I got this mower for $165 during the week of Black Friday!It took 2 hours to charge the battery. After about 45 minutes of use, I still had 1 of 4 bars left on the battery. I used the middle setting (#3) for the height which helped to collect the leaves as well as the grass in the rear bag. Much, much quieter than a gas mower…my neighbor didn’t know I had mowed the lawn while she was sleeping! Due to it being mainly plastic (lightweight), you literally can push it with one hand. So far so great…

    Missing screws for cowling. Cowling had to be forced to fit.

    Update on 12-04-2023: After I got the cowling reattached (had to force the screws to align with the holes) then I found I could not remove the battery. Forcing the screws racked the cowling such that the battery was stuck. Had to remove the cowling screws to allow the battery to be removed and installed.12-01-2023: Setup was a breeze but I found two black screws in the bottom of the box. Upon close inspection, I found three of the screws that hold the top cowling (covering the motor) to be missing. I expected to be able to simply reinstall them but the plastic cowling had to be forced (using two people) to get it to allow the screws to align with their holes. All other screws seemed to be properly installed and tight. It took about an hour to get the cowling back together. Mower ran fine otherwise. Nice and easy to use.

    Good light duty mower

    Good light duty mower!I’ve had this for nearly 3 years now, and only came back to write a review since I was requesting warranty work for a battery that has just started lasting less than 15 minutes after nearly 3 years of 2-4 uses per month.This is my first electric lawn mower, and I definitely like not having to winterize or rebuild the carb of the gas mower every season. Its surprisingly quiet and pretty light weight. I’m on a 1/3 acre lot and could normally do the front in one charge, take a break and let it charge, then hit the back in a charge later that day or the next day. I definitely like it, but if I had any bigger of a lot, I would like to upgrade to a bigger deck and possibly an 80V system.It does reasonably well through thick/tall grass, but you’ll half the battery life. If you cut your lawn once a week or live in an area it doesn’t grow so fast, this would be perfect for you. I’d estimate 45 minutes on “low power” then 20ish min when it goes to “high power” and needs to cut through the bigger stuff.Super easy to use.Pretty happy overall, customer service was easy. Answered a few questions with Greenworks directly and they said they would send a new battery since I was within the 3 year warranty period. Mower seems just fine, battery is just done. The blades are ok at best, expect to sharpen them once a month or buy better ones.I will probably use this opportunity to try out the battery weed eater, since I don’t have one yet.

    Mower is good – removing the battery is almost impossible

    I’ve now used the lawn mower several times and it appears to work fine. However, I dread it when I need to remove the battery. The battery encasement is extremely small and the batter slides in from the top, so there is very little room to get a grip on the battery, push the lever down, then pull the battery up and out. Plus, I have to hold the wheels with one foot so the mower doesn’t move while I’m struggling with the battery! I bought some tight fitting rubber gloves to get a better grip, which helped some. I am a small woman, with very small, thin hands – my neighbor couldn’t even get his hand in far enough to get it out. Hoping it gets easier …………….

    Great electric option

    We replaced our brand name gas powered lawn mower because the carburetor had to be replaced again. We live in Florida so we use the mower year round but the gas one kept gunking up. Anyways, our neighbors have this and I liked the noise level. In summer you often mow early or late in the day to avoid the sun and this is much quieter compared to gas motors. I can mow next to our bedroom and my husband can’t hear it.I love how light weight this is. We have a canal and I can easily mow the hillside. We have thick Bermuda grass and it works really well on it. The adjustable height setting works great to not burn out grass and to cut if it is a bit overgrown. If I mow slightly damp grass it will clump around the blades but I can hear that change and can easily scrape it. Obviously turn it off, wear gloves to do this, and do it slowly to not get nicked by the blade. I don’t use the bag and it mulches well so I don’t need to rake if I mow regularly except where I had to clear the damp clumps.The only con for me is that the blade is not very close to the edge so no matter how tight I try to cut the fence line I need to follow up with the weed whacker. Because we do have an organic backyard for pollinators, sometimes I leave the edge wild with flowers so I don’t always mind the edging issue.I do wish I had bought a slightly wider version because our backyard takes the full battery to mow but the recharge is fairly quick.I like that the handle can fold down for storage and I like that getting the battery in and out is easy. Love love not having to refill a gas can.

    Good product, lousy manual

    Used once so far; prefer it to its Worx predecessor.Arrived mostly assembled. If you are not savvy with product assembly, good luck.The manual is a pamphlet with tiny illustrations. The one that tries to explainhow to attach the handle bars is the worst. Greenworks saved themselves $$$by providing a nominal instructions format – unlikes ones I used to get with amajor piece of equipment.

    A great small mower

    This is a great mower for trimming around the house before or cleaning up after a larger mower. It is narrow, light, can be height adjusted on the fly and can reach the places a heavier mower would need considerable strength and stamina with minimum effort. The slow startup cycle is a great safety feature as well as if the bail is released the blade stops immediately. The feature that allows the mower to “idle” until it starts engaging the grass works very well. It allows me to reach places that I used to have to weed eat because of slope or tight fit. It is virtually maintenance free and easily folds down for compact storage. It is light enough the built in handle lets most people carry the whole thing and put it away. I got this mower largely in part because I have two existing Greenworks tools that use a smaller but interchangeable battery.I looked at a lot of reviews about the 40v battery. This one holds a charge well and charges relatively quickly. It has very good staying power and does not tail off too much before low voltage shutdown occurs. It is a LiPo battery and has the same strengths and weaknesses of all lipo batteries and rechargeable batteries in general. They all last a lot longer if they are fully discharged, allowed to cool, then fully recharged, then allowed to cool before placing it into operation. If you finish your job and plug the battery onto the charger so it will be ready for next time, you will decrease the available amp hours over time degrading the battery. If you have a good size yard and this would be your only mower you would need spare batteries which are expensive. If you think of it as an alternative to weed eating it is great. All this being said, no matter what you do the battery will finally wear out just like your car or any other battery. In this case a LiPo has a very long life as long as it being charged and discharged completely, but periods of inactivity can be hard on them just like the battery on a cordless drill.This is so much lighter than the self propelled honda I had been using. If you have ever had to keep letting a mower down the hill and pull it back up and hope you don’t slip and get your foot under the mower, this is a life changer. Its great for those hard to do areas that are too large to weed eat. I am also tired of fighting with my gas mower getting it going every spring. It’s a great mower. Batteries are expensive and should be taken care of.

    Greenworks 16″ 40V Mower

    I ordered the 16″ 40V mower not knowing what to expect. I had always used a self-propelled gas mower. It arrived and I assembled it in just a few minutes with no trouble at all. And then I put the battery on charge and I noticed the red light was flashing. It didn’t charge. I contacted the company and was put on a will call line which I never received back. Later I contacted customer service with Amazon and they said they couldn’t replace the battery, only the company could. If the mower didn’t work just send it back for a replacement they said. So I did, no problem since I am Prime it was no cost. I received the new mower a few days later and was able to use the mower the next weekend. The mower is extremely quiet and doesn’t sound like it’s cutting very much but it does. It does a fine job. I have a relatively small front/side yard and small back yard so it should do just fine for me. The battery seems to hold up great. One thing I noticed was if it reached a heavier section of grass it would speed up to accommodate the heavier cut. It’s new so I love it so far. It is very light and easy to handle even though it’s not self-propelled. I love the quick 5-level adjust. I cut my yard on position #2 just fine. For small yards, I do recommend this mower.

    Jurry’s still out…

    The first one of these I ordered was not great. The handle was so low that it hurt my back to mow with it… I’m a 5ft7in tall woman and I should not be too tall for any lawn mower on the market. This made it incredibly difficult to maneuver and made mowing the lawn EXTREMELY hard and painful. I checked several times to make sure I had put it together correctly and I had. There was no way to change anything. By the third mow the mechanism that secures the handle had stripped and the handle could slide freely up and down at least a foot in height while mowing. Additionally, the grass would not fill the catch bag but just gather at the opening. There was no replacement function so I just returned it and ordered a new one. The second one’s handle seems to be in the correct position and the catch bag fills normally so I wonder if the first one was just defective. I’ve only used the new one once but it’s already been a significant improvement. I’ll come back to edit my review depending on how the rest of the season goes. If it stays at this quality I would recommend it to others.

    Works Great!

    I love this little thing. I have a fairly huge back yard and it manages to do both front and back on one charge. It’s pretty strong for being as small as it is. It’s all I could afford but I like that I don’t have to worry about changing oil or fixing gas filters. It’s so easy. I even had the battery in all winter (i forgot by accident lol) When I took it back out it was ready to go in an instant. Not sure why people don’t like that part. Even though it does not help you push forward I still gave it 5 stars for durability. I have not been gentle with this thing.

    Not much Umph

    Does pretty good but isn’t a beast like my gas powered mower was. My front yard is just grass but my backyard is a variety of weeds. Let the battery cool off before trying to charge. The battery is hard to extract from both the charger and the motor. I like that the handle is in two parts because it lessens the storage space.

    Reliable but Small

    This mower is small in size and reliably cuts the grass. The run time is about 40 minutes per battery charge. The grass catching bag fills very quickly and only allows you to empty it from the narrow end making it difficult to empty. Overall for a very small yard it’s ideal. It will cut lawn, heavy weeds and vines as well. It can be used with the mulching baffleOr with the grass bag. It’s lightweight and easy to push and relatively easy to maneuver.

    Works well but…

    Works well but… The battery life was short I have a pretty standard lawn, live in the middle of my block. I only got 1/2 way thru when it died. I ordered a 2nd battery that lasted thru the entire lawn. I must have received a return because there were a couple minor scrapes on the mower you could tell. But overall I am happy with my purchase before I was using a hand-me-down electric mower so not having to use the 100ft cord is a relief! This one is lighter, it’s compact enough to pack up and take elsewhere. The grass catcher fills up fast but is easy to remove and hook back up so it’s a quick action.

    Sturdy and holds charge

    I was skeptical about buying an electric/battery powered lawn mower but didn’t have many other options due to the phasing out of gas powered. This thing is great, though. It gets through our medium sized yard no worries and is much quieter than a gas powered. Different length settings are easy to initiate and the rest is straight forward.

    Decent machine

    Overall, pretty decent little machine. I’ve used it a couple of times since buying it in late September 2022. It gets the job done and didn’t cost me a ton of money.Pros:* Lightweight and easily maneuverable* Quieter than a gas mower* Electricity is cheaper than gas, for the moment, so this is saving me a ton of money* Don’t have to deal with keeping gas in my garageCons:* Small cutting path (I highly recommend going up to the 24″ or larger if possible)* Like a vacuum cleaner, you end up having to go over a few spots a couple of times* The one 4 Ah battery barely gets through my front yard. I bought a second 6Ah battery to help get both the front and back done in one pass. Gas mowers definitely have the advantage in speed/time.* The vibration causes my right thumb to go numb, but I’m pretty sure the same thing would happen with a gas mower, too.* To turn it on, you push and hold a button while depressing the handle. You have to hold the handle down the entire time to keep it on. I think that, coupled with the vibration, is why my thumb goes numb. Would be nice if there was a latch to keep the handle down so I don’t have to grip so hard to keep it on.

    Easy Use for Busy Moms

    Not knowing much about lawncare, I wanted something that was lightweight, easy to assemble and use, and wasn’t too loud. I was using a manual lawn mower and it was getting to be way too much work. My neighbor’s lawnmower is the same brand, Greenworks, and he had let me use his. As soon as I used it, I knew I liked it. His is a little bigger and has the self-propelled feature, and this one doesn’t but I don’t mind because our lawn is a smaller size. It comes with a battery, charger, collection bag, and the manual. It’s the perfect size to maneuver across the lawn and, as a busy mom, I really like how quickly I can get it done and move on with the day. It takes me about 40-50 minutes and the battery is always still kicking. Our amazon box was in good condition, too. I had also checked places like Home Depot and Lowe’s but at the time, their lawn mower prices were just too expensive. Honestly, I really like this little lawnmower and the price wasn’t bad either! I’m happy with the value!

    Tried and True!

    So I’ve used this twice now, and I found that I approve of it overall. Here is my review.PROS:1. It has FIVE height levels, and you can adjust the whole mower with 1 hand! The height adjustment is a really huge win for people who live in FL like I do– because cutting your grass to low here can mean the death of your lawn.2. It’s light weight. The body and the wheels are made of plastic. This makes it A LOT easier to control and traverse lawns that have a sloped run off as well as the speed at which you can move across flat surfaces.3. I got 1 hr 04 min of run time (vs. the gauranteed 45 min).4. It’s way quieter and way easier to start. No priming or string pulling needed.5. The grass catcher is detachable and also super easy to re-attach.6. The battery sits on the top of the mower, does not get too hot to handle, and slides in and out of position without issue.7. No more paying $2.75 (or more) for a gallon of gas… JUST TO MOW YOUR LAWN!CONS:1. It’s a bit smaller in width than any of the lawnmowers I’ve ever owned or used (but Greenworks does make a larger mower to make up for that).2. The push bar sits a bit low. I’m 5′ 9.5″- and my back was pretty tender in my initial use. It could have just been the result of transitioning from a gas mower to this electric mower however I did change the bars lenght (position) in my 2nd run. Like your standard mower– the push bar can be set to two lenghts. In my 1st run it was set in the 2nd (lower) position. In my 2nd run it was set in the 1st (higher) position.3. Unable to cut my entire yard on a fully charged battery. I did cut about 85% of my total yard (front & back) but in both uses the stopping point was about the same. Note: I also have the Greenworks Weed Eater/Trimmer which uses a 20V battery. So while charging the 40V– I would switch over to edging. By the time I was done there was enough juice in the 40V to finish the yard.In short, Yes, I am satisfied with my purchase. As a bit of advice however, if your yard normally takes more than an hour to cut, you should consider buying an 40V additional battery as a time saver. Hope this helps!

    A respectable all rounder… but with specific strengths and weaknesses.

    I am on a half acre lot that is actually quite a bit larger than it seems at first blush. I have thick carpetgrass. So I have sort of the worst case scenario for this… about the maximum size lot you’d want to push mow, and with thick tougher grass that requires more oomph. Some thoughts:1) Do not let your grass grow for 2+ weeks and then mow. The mower has some sort of “torque sense” feature to it, where it throttles up when it is having trouble churning through everything. This helps you power through the heavy stuff, but it also drains the battery considerably faster. It seems like twice as fast. So if you let your lawn go until it’s thick, expect twice as many charges to get through it.2) The grass clipping bag is laughably small. I would NOT want to bag much more a town house sized lawn, for fear I’d wear my shoes out with the amount of walking around it’d take to empty it so many times. It’s a 16″ deck… this is sort of expected for this size mower anyway, but this bag is small even for a 16″ deck.3) The battery charges surprisingly quickly. You have to wait an hour for cool down if you’ve really thrashed it … but it will get most of the way back to full in 2 or 3 hours.4) It is spookily quiet. You can listen to music easily while using this thing.5) It is crazy light … and on a lot with some serious slopes like mine, this is where the mower earns its keep. It is a real featherweight, and lighter than even a 12 or 14″ deck el cheapo gas mower by far. This thing handles slopes with ease that would send riding mowers packing and slopes that push mowers would sending YOU packing on.6) It’s electric, so you have just one moving part other than the blade. The blade is the only thing requiring maintenance. Say goodbye to winterization of your mower. Say goodbye to trying to hunt down ethanol free gas that won’t ruin your mower’s gas tank or carburetor. I suspect even if the battery pack only gets you 4 or 5 years, you’d still come out ahead of a gas mower over the lifetime of the product, given that the gas stuff dings you $3/gallon to refill, and this tops up for just pennies off the wall socket.7) The height adjust mechanism is sensible and sturdy.8) It requires this little “key” (electric jumper is more accurate) to operate. I would NOT want to lose that. It will probably be a PITA to find a replacement over time.9) It takes me about 4 charges to do my half acre if it is a bit dense (week and a quarter or so). One for the front, three for the back. Bear in mind I do have, as I said, about the worse case scenario (thick heavy grass type, largeish yard).So … overall … a pretty good compromise. I would NOT get if you do a lot of bagging on any considerable amount of yard. I would get if you have to contend with serious slopes on your yard. Even if you already have professional equipment. This is the best for slopes period. If your yard is a half acre or less … I’d certainly consider it.

    wish I would have read all the one star reviews first what a POS

    This is really a ONE STAR REVIEW but I put it under five stars so that YOU would not be fooled like I was. I have had this mower less than 24 hours abd thank god for Amazon’s return policies. Every review I read under one star after my ghastly experience today rang true. NO Power Battery runs for 5-10 minutes max, couldn’t get through my first mowing of a dry, 2.5 inch 600sq ft lawn even on 2 charges, bag catches less than 60% of the clippings , most shoot out between the wheels and the body of the mower. When I went to recharge the battery iy was HOT and the charger indicator said “RED”which means wait until it cools down again to attempt another charge. Faulty charge circuit… you must take the battery off the charger immediately or risk damaging the battery very quickly. Never a Greenway product again. Lesson learned

    Works better than I thought

    Not as loud as most lawn mowers! Has adjustable levels for cutting lower or taller grass. The only thing i found difficult at first was the charger for it it seemed a little loose so I had to really make sure it was in the grooves to charge. Otherwise it works pretty good!

    Purchased July 2021 and still going strong.

    I purchased this mower 2 years ago to mow around the parking lot of my BBQ restaurant. I figured I’d get a season or two out of it. I’m here to tell you, this is more powerful than I expected and still going strong. Heck, this lasted longer than my restaurant.Greenworks offers some great products and services. I have more than one of their pressure washers and even their robot vacuum that works perfectly. I’m happy with my little mower.It’s light and strong. The battery only lasts about 40 minutes so if you have a large lot, you’ll want more batteries or just do it over a couple of days. It took me three charges to do my 1-acre lot.If you want to see it in action, I’m uploading a video to my Amazon profile.

    Love it So Far! Great for Big Kids and Teens!

    First, we have a BIG yard. 1.5 acres. I’m one of those crazies who will never buy a riding mower because I love the exercise of a push mower, so I was definitely looking for another one to push when our old gas mowers died again. I was very excited at the thought of kissing my days of broken carburetors, smelly gas, and difficult to start mowers goodbye, so I drove in and bought this electric mower. However, was a little reluctant when I unboxed it and saw how small and light it looked. It almost looked like a toy mower. Apparently appearances with even mowers can be deceiving because this little guy still has a lot of power! I knew I wouldn’t be able to obviously mow my entire yard in one go, but I got a lot further than I thought I would. My yard is very uneven, imperfect and has some sticks and rocks in missed, and I was extremely impressed by the way this little mower handled everything. One big plus: this is great for kid training! Two of my kids happily mowed most of the yard. It’s lighter and easier to push than a standard gas giant, and this perfect for teaching the rising generation how to work hard. Truly very pleased and impressed! I plan on updating at the end of the mowing season.

    Almost Perfect

    Overview:As described.Experience:Yep as described and in keeping with other reviews, that’s good for 4 stars. I don’t give 5 stars unless it does all that and does something exceeding expectations, like sing and dance. This though is as expected just barley….It is a great mower, even cutting plenty of power easy to use but it falls short in battery life, I have a 1/3 of an acer lawn and it doesn’t finish on a single charge with height set to middle and grass being cut every week. Cost wise this is not a cheap product, and it does live up to the expectations in function and build quality. But the thought of purchasing another battery (Greenworks brand) is an additional $100. Though it has a rapid charger hot swapping from experience leads to battery failure. I have noted that the battery is very hot when I pull off the charger. I always let the battery cool prior to use and charging. You will note that the battery is a weak spot in reviews and that is probably due to this practice. Also the MFG does not recommend leaving on charger but removing immediately when fully charged. I now use a timer set for 1.0 hours then top off just prior to use. Those quirks alone would be a reason to give a negative review but the mower is really great, good enough to live with quirks and all.

    Constantly singing praises for these awesome little Greenworks machines !!! And I continually tell others how much I absolutely love them! Bought first mower almost 3 yrs ago & couldn’t be happier with its continued performance!! I’m a 64 yr old female, & Florida grass still needs mowing in winter months, just not weekly like in summer. But because this mower is smaller & lightweight I can easily maneuver it under bushes & curve around plants, mow in circular designs & easily adjust the height lever to even mow the grass that grows in between cracks of stepping stone paths in our back yard. I can easily stop and start it multiple times during a cut to pick up a branch or something else in the way. Just a simple push of the button, pull down the lever, & voila’ it starts back up every time. 😊 I love NOT having to ever mess anymore with gas or oil or primer buttons or hurting my side or bad shoulder by pulling a cord!! And the price of this Greenworks mower was awesome compared to other brands. I store my mower in a locked outside cedar shed while the battery & charger stays in my garage. But my story continues, as just 6 months ago after my son was recovering from back surgery, I let him use it cuz I was worried about him overdoing & told him it’s so much easier to start & maintain, & lighter to manuever that I thought it would be better for him to use at least for awhile, rather than starting & pushing around his heavy gas mower. And since he lives half hour away this “little Green” could be easily folded and transported in his car w/o the worry of gas & oil fumes or spills. He was apprehensive cuz it’s small and battery operated but appreciated my suggestion so he could try to independently keep up on his lawn while still recovering. Well, after only 1 month of using it, there was no turning back for him! He had fully recovered from his surgery but liked it so much he wanted to buy one of his own and his grassed areas are twice as large & thicker than ours! So rather than him transporting back to me & being so glad it was working well for him, I let him keep that one and bought us another new one, again delivered right to our door from Amazon. 😁 And now 6 months later, this one is proving to be just as much of a gem as the first one I gave him & his continues to go strong! I also have had the Greenworks 40 volt blower for over 2 yrs now. Since I could use the same battery that came with the mower it was a huge plus for me & that too is still working great & packs such a powerful punch that now my son is going to order one of those too.😉 And we’ve purchased each machine thru Amazon prime & as usual, received all very quickly & nicely packed. So thanks, thanks, and more thanks, so very much to both Greenworks AND Amazon !!! 😁

    Smooth operating lawn mower

    I bought another greenworks model prior to this and it was absolute garbage because it was assembled so that the wheels couldn’t turn due to a screw being in the way. This one however, was amazing. Battery lasted just like they claimed. I was able to mow my lawn quite easily, even after the grass grew kinda high, this mower took care of it.

    My neighbor, the dog across the street and I are all in awe……

    I’m on my 3rd corded Black & Decker. I’ll never go back to a gas mower and for the most part haven’t minded the cord. I did cheap out on the first cords however. That and my 1/4 acre lawn of thick grass may have been the cause of them not lasting more than a couple of years. Almost all of my lawn is within my fenced in back yard that also happens to have outlets all over too (at the fire pit, shed, hot tub etc.). My front yard is a different story- small sections of very fine grass (in almost complete shade) and one outlet by my front door. I actually enjoy mowing and love my electric mower but not the big, heavy 100 foot 12 gauge cord I need to do my front yard. Not being able to face another summer, this was my splurge. I just cranked this thing up and was quite shocked at the difference! This thing is quiet!!! I had to double check that it was actually running. My other corded one is quiet too but I’d say my immediate neighbors would know I’m mowing but not everyone down the street. I never felt guilty mowing early on Saturdays. This one sounds like a fan. No one in my house could tell I was mowing. My neighbor was loading his truck and had to do a double take. The big dog across the street that barks at EVERYTHING ignored me (he did bark at me earlier when I was pulling weeds- he must of been as bewildered by my new toy as I was haha). Wow. And it weighs next to nothing. I felt like I was pushing a toy vacuum I had when I was a kid- easier than pushing my Dyson. It was my first mow of the season and everything looks good to me. Overall I am very impressed. It was so nice to just put the battery in and go. One minute my front lawn was irritating me and ten minutes later it wasn’t 🙂 🙂 :)Now I only bought this intending to use it on my small, thinly grassed front yard which is why I got the smallest one. I still have my bigger corded one for the back. When it eventually goes though the bigger version of this will be replacing it. We had almost 3 feet of snow one weekend this winter and my GreenWorks Pro Snow Thrower plowed through it like a champ. Even the crap left by the snow plow. I’m really liking this brand. I did hope that the 80V battery would be interchangeable but it isn’t (I’m still learning). Very happy just the same.*** 5/21/2016 update- I haven’t even been tempted to drag out the larger corded mower. Still LOVING this thing. I can do my 1/4 acre on half a charge. Highly recommend!

    A decent budget mower

    For the price, you could do worse. The mower is much quieter than a typical gas powered machine. The battery runs about 45 minutes (as advertised) when the grass isn’t too high or damp. Wait too long between mows and you’ll get significantly less. Charging the battery takes a while (90 – 120 minutes), so you’d do well to pick up a spare.Using the bag attachment is frustrating, as the chute going from the mower to the bag constantly gets clogged and you’re either stopping every few minutes to clear the grass or sort of lifting the mower a bit and banging it around at the end of each pass while mowing, which is probably 100% safe and good for the life of the machine….So, in all, not a bad mower. I’ve been using it for several weeks without much problem.

    Okay?

    Really thankful so many people put photos with their reviews so I could realize that I received a defective mower. I couldn’t figure out why the deck wouldn’t raise/lower with the lever or why it was so hard to push.I’ve never had a lawnmower before and there’s nobody around to give me tips so I thought “Wow, this is why people hate mowing their lawns!”Nope. Turns out I received a defective one where the body arrived touching the back wheels. So the green is just dragging over the back wheels which is nbd going forward but good luck backing up!I did one path in my yard and thought I had to be doing something wrong.I read all of the instructions again, I checked the support page here, it wasn’t until I saw other reviewer’s photos that I saw the massive difference in what I had to what they had.I’m awaiting a replacement mower which has become its own struggle because in order to return this you need the original box. Which is huge and immediately went into the recycling. So, just an FYI for anyone who may have to return this.The battery arrived with a smidge of a charge and was easy to charge up — it was ready to go in a couple hours.It’s a very quiet mower which is nice.I’m looking forward to mowing my lawn with the new one which hopefully looks like everyone else’s lolThis was a decent value, I couldn’t find anything as good for the same price, and friends with greenworks lawn equipment raves about the brand. Here’s hoping!Will update once I receive the replacement.UPDATE:LOLLLL! This first one was DEFINITELY defective. Wow, what a difference there is between this one and the old one! Not having the body ride on the wheels is pretty great. Easy to use, easy to raise and lower the blade, easy to push. Yard was mowed in no time. Great mower, just maybe double check against pics and other reviews when you receive it to make sure it isn’t defective.

    Green means proceed. These items are awesome.

    I love this mowers maneuverability. Ecstatic about the quality. I was pleased with simple assembly instructions. This is a great lawn keeper. The blower is very well designed and lightweight, as well. I also love; no liquid fuel and no….”OH CRUD!!! I just ran over my extension cord—AGAIN..! “Dislikes….can’t find one this early on…! Will revise if necessary.

    Perfect for my needs

    I only have a 1/2 acre to mow and this is perfect size. It’s easy to handle and clean. I like the battery power so I don’t have to worry about an electrical cord or filling with gasoline.

    Disappointed

    Everything was going well. Today it’s making a beeping sound, starts and stops. It has not been a year yet..I am disappointed. I called Greenworks and you have to take it to a repair shop after an interview..it’s annoying…get something reliable….explore the internet..seems like some brushes come a loose and you have to remove the top to fix it. I can’t get the screws out..so here we are…10 months later…I’ll be taking my lawnmower to a repair shop. Too late to return to Amazon 😢 Changed my review again..it’s working…lifted the mower to a higher level..and it worked. I’m grateful.

    Long-lasting durability

    I bought this mower 9 YEARS ago. I was surprised to see it still sold but it’s a solid product so I guess it makes sense. I use it to mow my grass through spring, summer and early fall and then i switch it over to leaf mowing/collecting duty into early winter (we have a lot of trees). All in all it gets used most weekends for 8 months out of the year. The only maintenance it’s needed was a blade sharpening every other year and it’s worked flawlessly for, by my rough math, about 300 mowing sessions.Here comes the downside to electric mowers, the battery. When it was new it could easily mow my entire lawn on a single charge, it has struggled with this over the past few years, depending on how long the grass is and how often I have to start and stop to empty the bag. I usually have to borrow the little battery from my leaf blower to finish the job. That leaves me with a dilemma, buy a new (very pricey) battery for my perfectly good but aging mower in the hopes it will last another 9 years, or upgrade to an 80v mower.In conclusion, this has been an extremely good mower. I don’t know if I’ve owned ANYTHING for 9 years and had fewer issues with it. It’s light, it’s quiet, it’s clean, it’s easy to use, easy to store, very little maintenance required, no need to buy gas, pour gas, store gas, you won’t smell like exhaust, it’s better for you (and the environment if you’re into that kind of thing), it’s perfect.

    It works!!!

    Arrived in time to make a final year end cut. No problems in assembling, starting or running. Easy to push, stop & start. Can’t wait til next summer to put it to a full summer of grass cutting.

    Not the best, not the worst

    Have used it twice now. Mulch spills out the sides of the underside, which then gets pushed deep into the grass by the rear wheels, which also crushes the grass to where it can’t be mowed on a second pass. I made a second pass to try to collect it but it didn’t work. Very disappointed I now have to rake up the mulch after mowing. I left the mulch on the grass after the first use and the grass died in those areas because there was so much. I now have stripes of dead grass in my lawn.
