The best electric mowers to buy at a glance

Jump to

All the lawn mowers in our review are rotary mowers with an electric motor that spins a blade to cut the grass. This blade is angled upwards to create lift, which pulls cut grass away and into the grass collector. We tested a range of electric mowers, putting them through their paces across different lawns and terrains, to help you find the right one for your garden.

Each mower has a detailed list of pros and cons for clarity and has been rated according to set up and storage, handling, mowing and value for money. Every mower in our round up below has scored a minimum of four out of five stars, so you can buy with confidence.

In every review we award outstanding products our coveted Best Buy award. To see these and the others we recommend, browse our pick of the best electric lawn mowers, below:

The grass box is easy to empty and indicates when it’s full, however, we found it a little tricky to assemble. The handle which folds for easy storage is a little short for taller users.

Our rating: 4/5

This mower does the basics very well. It’s well thought out with an adjustable, folding handle for storage and a handy cable relief clip and it has five cutting heights from 25-65mm, which are simple to change with a single lever.

Einhell GE-EM 1233

Our rating: 4/5

However, the black cable is hard to spot against the grass and the one-handed drive lever is uncomfortable, particularly for left-handers.

  • Cutting width: 33cm
  • Power: 1250W
  • Weight: 11.5kg
  • Noise: 96dB

How to choose an electric lawn mower

Not all budget mowers are basic machines. Consider the following points to help you choose the right electric mower for you:

  • Where are you mowing? A convenient power socket is essential for an electric mower but you may need an extension lead too. Check that the length of the cable is long enough to reach all parts of your lawn. If your lawn runs right up to walls, fences or raised beds look for a model that cuts to the edge or you’ll need to invest in a grass trimmer to neaten them up afterwards.
  • What size mower do you need? The wider the cutting width, the quicker the mower will cut your lawn. However, there is a trade-off. Mowers with a wider width have a bigger deck and are heavier and less easy to manoeuvre around trees or furniture. A wider cutting width is therefore best for large expanses of grass while smaller models are ideal for nipping up and down little lawns and negotiating beds and borders.
  • Is it safe? An electric cable is an obvious safety hazard and if you’re concerned about tripping over the cable or cutting it accidentally when you’re mowing, look for a model with a brightly coloured lead that’s easy to spot. A cable relief clip will help to keep it tucked out of the way of the blade and will also prevent it being snagged and ripped out. For safety always use an RCD (Residual Current Device) plugged into the electric socket before plugging in your mower.
  • Where will you store it? No matter the model, these are fairly bulky machine. However, the handles of most mowers can be partly unscrewed to fold over the body of the mower; others are designed to unclip and double fold completely flat. If you need to lift the mower up steps into storage or onto a shelf, make a note of its weight and whether there are carry handles to make this easier.

How we tested electric lawn mowers

When we test lawn mowers, each one is unpacked, assembled, and then used to cut grass over a wide area, and wheeled up slopes and in and out of storage to see how they fared. They are assessed according to the following criteria with equal marks attributed to each:

like this

  • Setup and storage. Looked at the ease of assembly and clarity of instructions and how easy the mower is to store.
  • Handling. Focused on comfort and ease of use, handle-height adjustment and how to change the height of cut, weight and noise levels.
  • Mowing. Assessed cutting width, the range of cutting heights, collection-bag capacity and features such as cutting to the edge or mulching.
  • Value for money. Considered all of the above as well as quality, design, warranty and price.

Back in the past, gas-powered mowers (even the old-fashioned push mowers) were the only way your lawn could be cut. It was time-consuming and you used a lot of gas. Fast forward to today, we have electric mowers.

The best electric mowers are powered in two ways. Either by battery or by using a cord. There are many forms of electric mowers, which we will discuss today.

How to Choose an Electric Lawn Mower?

If you are in the market for a new lawnmower, you have probably considered an electric mower at some point. You’ve done some window shopping online to see which ones you want to buy. Perhaps you are one of those people who want to reduce their carbon print on Earth (which is always a good thing) so you definitely want to explore some options.

As you know, battery-powered mowers have been extremely popular in recent years because they’re electric and you’re not tripping over the cord while mowing your lawn. These types of mowers certainly have their advantages such as being quiet, they don’t smell, and literally just push the button to start. Those advantages, of course, get you excited but you should consider the disadvantages so that you are well informed when it comes to choosing an electric mower. As you are mowing, it takes energy from the battery. That means, if it’s low, it won’t perform at its best. Electric mowers are simply not powerful enough for difficult mowing situations that their gas counterparts are made for. However, the electric lawn mower does a good enough job for any normal-sized lawn.

If you are still considering an electric mower, that’s great! But you should base your decision on these factors:

Size of your yard

As we previously talked about, an electric mower is amazing for a small-medium yard. The battery on an electric mower will die out as you use it, so that’s why it is recommended that you are buying it for smaller to medium-sized yards. (up to max of half acres). Imagine waiting for your battery to recharge and you want to do another chore, that’s no fun at all. So, the size of your yard matters when it comes to these mowers. If you have a large property, it’s probably best if you consider a gas powered or ride-on mower.

Terrain matters

For an electric mower, it’s extremely important that it’s on a FLAT terrain. A lot of electric mowers have a ton of power, but do you really want to waste it trying to push it up a hilly terrain? It’ll probably be low performing by then. Leave that to the more powerful gas mowers and stick with flat areas.

No tall grass or weeds

As amazing as electric mowers are, none of them have the strength that the gas mowers have. If you’re the kind of person who mows their yard every 2 weeks or so, an electric mower is perfect for you. But if you let it grow for say a month or two, you’ll have to resort to a gas mower.

An electric lawnmower is perfect if you have a small, maintained yard. If you like the low noise and ease of you, it’s definitely for you.


Rotary mowers: One very high-speed spinning cutting blade, which cuts the grass on contact, characterizes rotary mowers. These types of mowers are very common as they allow Rapid cutting and depositing of medium to high cut grass in a rear-mounted grass box. For maneuvering, these mowers usually have four fixed wheels.

Cylinder mowers: These types of mowers have blades that tend to be exposed in a cylindrical drum structure that you see in front of the mower. They cut grass by slicing against a fixed bottom plate with the smaller blades doing all the work for the mower.

Hover mowers: These types of mowers are similar to the rotary mowers where they have a rotating cutting disc but that’s where the similarity ends. A hover mower doesn’t have wheels so for them to move they created a downward force of air that makes them move like a hovercraft.

Facts about electric mowers

Electric mowers run on the cord and batteries. Some people like the cord one, some don’t. Here are some facts about the electric mowers you should know about:

How to care for your electric mower

The electric mower is quieter and less messy than their gas counterparts, but they will still require some maintenance. One of the most important things about them is they need to be kept clean. Things like muck and thick grass will be on the blades and if not wiped off, can affect the function of the mower. For this, all you simply need to do is take a moist rag, remove any muck and grass that you see on the blades, undercarriages, and vents. When you are cleaning your mower, make sure you are wearing gloves to prevent being cut from the blades and such.

After you’ve cleaned the parts, you’ll want to make sure that all the bolts and nuts are still on the mower because sometimes one or two can be loose, or worse missing somewhere on your lawn. This is usually done before you actually use the mower. When that is all said and done, most importantly, you’ll want to make sure the blades are sharp. If the blade isn’t, you’ll have to get it sharpened before use, otherwise, it won’t cut grass.

How much power the electric mower consumes

It really depends on which model you have. A corded electric mower can run endlessly, but have little maneuvering and can’t do a large lawn. A battery mower has more flexibility, but it dies down faster.

A corded electric mower uses between 700 and 1800 watts of electricity per hour. A battery-operated one, which is weaker than the corded ones, typically uses 600 to 1400 watts, depending on the battery amps.

How to store your electric mower

Just like their gas counterparts, you can store in the garage or shed if you have one. Some electric models have the ability to fold up so they can fit in even smaller spaces which is a benefit of owning an electric one vs a gas one.

What is The Best Time to Mow Your Lawn

Most people just mow the lawn whenever in the daytime that they have free time. However, there is an optimal time to mow your lawn. Why is there an optimal time? Unless you’re an expert landscaper, you probably didn’t even know there’s an optimal time to mow your lawn. Let’s look into the times of the day:

Early Morning

A lot of people like to get up early and start mowing their lawns. This is actually not a good time. The morning mildew makes the grass very wet, and especially for an electric mower, will bog down the mower’s performance and you won’t get that nice, manicured lawn you were looking for.


By now, the mildew is gone, and your lawn is finally dry enough (if it’s not raining). It’s also not too hot for yourself or the lawn itself. This time of day also gives the lawn a chance to heal during the day after it’s been mowed.


This is usually the hottest part of the day, so it’s usually not optimal for yourself or the lawn. Why? The lawn can get extremely stressed. But if your lawn is not too bad, you can give it a normal cut. But if it’s like the jungle, you’ll probably burn the lawn, giving them that brown look that you do not want.


This is another good time to mow your lawn, especially in the late afternoon. If you didn’t get up in the morning, this is another good time because the chances of burning your lawn is less now.


After work, people like to mow their lawns because they want to get it done for the day. But mowing in the evening means you’re likely to get your lawn sick. Dew sets in at night, and when you’re attempting to mow, the lawn will be exposed to fungus and infections.

The Verdict

Mid-morning and afternoons (especially late afternoons) are the most optimal times to mow your lawn and keep it in good condition.

Is an electric lawn mower worth it?

Besides being environmentally friendly, they are worth it if you don’t let your yard go out of control. While not as powerful as their gas counterparts, technology is getting better with the electric mowers. For example, Greenworks now have a 80-volt battery lawn mower, which can last 30-40 minutes before needing to charge. It’s worth it if you have small normally maintained lawns should you decide to get an electric mower.

Are electric mowers powerful enough?

There are newer models out there on the market that claim to have torque power, but simply put they will never be as powerful as the gas mowers. However, electric mowers have 1-3 “horsepower” which is strong enough to cut through a normal-sized lawn that has been maintained.

Are battery mowers any good?

If you hate lugging around the heavy gas mower and constantly getting gas for it, then yes this is where battery mowers may be beneficial for you. A battery mower is lightweight and environmentally friendly. This means you can maneuver the battery operated one much easier and quicker.

Bottom Line

Electric mowers are all the rage now. So, if you’re in the market looking for one, make sure it’s suitable to your yard. If you live out in the country, it may not be suitable. But if you live with a small to medium yard, as you saw in this article, there are many options you can choose from.

How To Choose a Battery Operated Lawn Mower?

In this buying guide, we have provided all essential information about battery-powered lawn mowers, including what factors to consider like runtime, power, blade speed, etc. Check these factors to invest in the best model.


Power represents the performance of a battery powered lawn mower. It is measured in terms of volts. Battery powered lawn mowers come with power range between 36 to 120 volts.

Underpowered models may slow down the blade while cutting the grass, especially tough or thick grass/weed.

The lawnmowers with higher voltage (like above 70 volts) can easily generate more power required for self-propelled wheels. Thus, it provides additional torque to cut through dense grass with ease. Even though they aid in better performance and suits for medium-large yards but they are expensive and trade-offs.

For instance, a 70-volt battery weighs heavier than a 40-volt battery. Thus, require more power to drive it forward, which has a negative impact on runtime. Therefore, it makes the mower to become difficult to move/operate.

While mowers with a lower voltage (36 – 65 volts) are lighter, easy to move around obstacles (such as shrubs or trees), affordable, and suits for small yards.

Battery Runtime:

The run time of most battery-powered lawn mowers will be around 30 – 60 minutes. The runtime (amp-hour/Ah) of a battery will let you know how much time a mower can go at once. So, the higher the Ah of a battery, the longer it will last before you recharge it. Also, the size of your yard will let you decide the perfect runtime of your battery-powered lawnmower.

For a smaller lawn, you can easily mow the entire lawn without recharging the battery in the middle, while for a larger yard, you have to take a break either to recharge or replace the battery (if you have an extra battery).

Note – While mowing the yard with thick or tall grass, obstacles, and slopes will reduce the runtime and thus, slow down the mower.

Cutting Width:

The cutting width or deck size will determine how wide a lawnmower can cut in a single pass. In general, the deck width in older models of the cordless mower is narrow than gas mowers (around 16 to 18 inches) but now the newer models are available with a cutting width of 20 – 22 inches.

The wider the mower’s deck size, the fewer passes are required to mow your lawn. For small lawns, a mower with a narrow deck size is ideal, as it can let you get into tighter spaces, whereas for a larger yard, there should be some extra inches of width to save your effort and time.

Smaller mowers have a cutting width below 20-inches suits for 1/4-acre or less lawns, while larger mowers come with a deck width of above 20 inches, suits for more than 1/4-acre. Most brands offer 20 to 21 inches in the standard battery-operated electric mowers, which works fine.

Blade Speed:

One has to consider the blade speed to determine the performance offered by your lawn mower. The blade speed is represented in rounds per minute (RPM). The blade with a higher speed will result in great cutting performance and thus offer clean cuts while mowing the grass in your yard.

Different cordless mowers offer different blade speeds. One can easily find options with blade speeds like 1500 RPM or 2000 RPM, choose the one that comes with higher blade speed. Most mowers offer variable speed trigger, which allows you to adjust the blade speed easily, as per your requirement.


Amp-hour reading provides insight on how much runtime the battery stores. In simple terms, it tells you how much time the lawn mower can go at one go. Lawn mowers come with either 2.0 Ah or 4.0 Ah. Higher rating provides long battery life.

On an average, lawn mowers can cut grass continuously for 30 minutes to an hour. Within this time, they can mow 5,000 to 10,000 square feet before you have to recharge again.

For small to medium sized lawns, you don’t need long runtime. But if you have a bigger lawn, it is better to invest in model with higher runtime.

Another great advantage of using battery operated lawn mowers is that you can just keep multiple spare batteries in your kit. Once the battery runs out, you can just replace new batteries and continue the work without any issues.

Adjustable Cutting Height:

A lawnmower with adjustable deck height will let you mow grass at different lengths. We know that different types of grass require trimming at different heights, without damaging the plants or ground. While, in gas-powered mowers, one has to adjust the height separately at each wheel but not in these cordless electric mowers.

So, a mower having an adjustment system like a lever to easily raise the deck on all four wheels at once will become your best and effortless option.

Most of these cordless electric mowers offer various height adjustment levels for their deck, which range from 1.5 to 4 inches. All you need is to select the proper height to cut the lawn at your desired length.

Battery Type:

Most of these battery-powered lawnmowers run on either lithium battery or lead-acid battery. Each type has its own set of pros and cons.

  • Lithium Battery– They are lighter, charge faster (60 minutes), less expensive, last longer and more efficient. This battery runs until it fully discharges, before recharging it. Thus, it is effective to use for mowing larger yards and let you finish at once.
  • Heavy Lead Acid Battery– They are heavy and need a longer time to recharge (12 hours). One has to replace it often and have to recharge it after using 50 – 80% of its capacity. But works fine in mowing your yard.

Note: Most modern models powered by a lithium-ion battery, which let you use it in any cordless tools. But both of these battery types are effective and works well.

Hand-Propelled Vs Self-Propelled Lawn Mowers:

Also, one has to consider whether they want to use self-propelled or hand-propelled cordless lawnmowers.

Hand-Propelled Model – This device won’t offer any mechanical assistance, and all you need is to push and steer by yourself. It is affordable yet suitable for mowing small yards. If you want to reduce the workload and enhance its cutting performance, then pick a mower with a poly deck (reduce weight) and low rolling resistance wheels to complete your task easily.

Self-Propelled Model – They come with a motor to push the unit automatically, without any manual pressure of pushing. One should steer the machine to move in the proper direction. It is a bit expensive and can be used to mow a large or sloping lawn.

Cut Quality:

The cut quality of a mower (blade) will depend on the battery’s power. A general rule is, the larger the battery of a mower, the more it can generate torque and power to cut the grass, especially different grass species.

A few models will let you adjust the torque or RPM (speed) of the blade, whereas a few other models offer an auto-adjust/auto-throttle option, which can easily get adjusted based on the resistance the blade senses. So, with this torque altering, one can easily achieve a perfect cut by preserving the battery life.


The cordless lawnmowers are lighter in weight than traditional/gas lawnmowers. Most of these mowers will weigh between 40 – 90 pounds. One will feel the difference in their weight after pushing it for 30 minutes, especially in thicker weed/grass. For instance, a hand-propelled mower is less in weight yet it increases your effort while pushing the mower.

A lawnmower that weighs 50 – 60 pounds is lighter, powerful, easier to move around, and can handle various mowing tasks effortlessly than a mower with 65 pounds weight. Also, powerful mowers weigh heavier due to their bigger batteries. So, one has to check the weight of a mower after installing its battery, as the battery can add some pounds to its total weight.

Apart from the battery, deck size will also make some difference in the weight of a mower. For example, a mower with a large 20-inch deck will weigh more than a mower with a small 14-inch deck.

Grass Clippings:

In general, there are 3 main options available for grass clippings – bagging, mulching and side or rear discharging, in which you have to choose the option based on your preference and lawn size. Some models offer you all these three options and let you switch between them, whereas other models offer one or two options.

Looking to bagging grass clippings, then you have to check the bag size and its volume to hold the clippings. A larger bag is required while mowing a large yard, as you do not have to stop it constantly for emptying the bag after it gets filled.

Some mowers offer a mulch plug option, which is used to convert the mower from bagging to mulching mode. Though this plug is effective and avoids clippings from flying back of the mower, it is a bit annoying to use. While other mowers have a door or sliding cover to open/close the bag, making it easier and more convenient to use.

Multiple Battery Ports:

Multiple battery ports are quite beneficial for those having a lawn of more than 1/3 acre. One can find three possibilities in these ports – a second storage port, a second active port with automatic switching and a second active port with a manual switch.

Among these three ports, automatic switching is convenient and effective to use, which can be seen in higher priced models. While the storage and manual switching options have to put some extra effort but not much like going to the garage for another battery.

Interchangeable Batteries:

The batteries of these cordless mowers are designed to use with other cordless power tools but it is from the same manufacturer with the same voltage rating. So, one has to check what are other devices compatible with the mower’s battery like string trimmers, pole saws, chainsaws, and leaf blowers from the same manufacturer. Also, stick with the same brand while purchasing a spare battery.

Grass Collector:

Different lawn mowers have grass collectors of different sizes, and their capacity can range from 30 – 70 liters. This will let you know how often you have to stop the mower to empty the grass collecting box or bag. Also, consider the weight of a full-filled grass collection bag, as it has an impact on the mobility of a mower.

Handle Comfort:

While mowing a lawn, we have to grip the handle properly for a long time, which makes most of us felt that our hands are getting tired easily. So, it is best to choose a mower having a handle that comes with ergonomic features, padding and different hand placement options.


A few models have handles that let you fold up easily for its storage, whereas others occupy even less space by folding and standing on the end. So, it is essential to consider your available storage space along with the mower size (smaller ones occupy less space) and mower design (whether how it folds up).

Ease of Use:

The ease of use depends on various factors of a mower. The cordless electric lawnmowers possess an easy to start/stop push button rather than pull start for gas mowers. Also, the large handles of the electric models will allow you to easily adjust the deck height or mulching mode. For instance, a high-end cordless mower includes self-propelled features, which make it easy to push/manoeuvre around the lawn.

Also, these battery-powered mowers can be folded up into a compact size for easy storage, easy charging procedure removable battery, and they should be easy to clean and maintain, especially for those having a busy lifestyle.


Using a mower with different adjustment styles, then look for adjustment on the stiffer side or one with positive stops. Thus, it reduces the chance of any accidental knocking to a different speed if you have bumpy terrain or a hand hits it.

Also, consider the dial location – a mower with centre and front is convenient to make adjustments. However, a few people hit that position while they turning with their hand or hip. So, prefer to choose a mower with adjustment on the side to prevent changing speed accidentally with each turn.

Steel Vs Poly Deck:

A gas-powered mower has either aluminium or steel decks, whereas a cordless mower comes with poly decks in every direction. Steel is a durable option than aluminium or poly decks. But poly is designed with the advantage of making subtle changes easily in their shape, which optimizes airflow for better lifting, mulching, and bagging than a steel deck.

If your yard having a lot of small rocks, which you have to kick up while mowing (or) your old machine won’t pay attention, they prefer to choose a mower with a steel deck, as it extends the mower’s life and also looks pretty good.

Safety Features:

The cordless electric lawnmowers come with built-in safety features that help you to prevent accidents. Here are a few features you should know before buying this type of mower.

  • The safety bars on the handle have to be held closed to keep the motor running.
  • It is equipped with guards and flaps to protect the user by preventing the mower from shooting debris at them.
  • A locking mechanism in the mower will hold the battery in place while using the machine.
  • Also, consider other safety features like trigger locks, childproof starting mechanism, stone deflectors, etc. in the mower while purchasing them.

Battery Indicator:

Most of these cordless electric lawn mowers come with an LED readout that shows the charge left in the battery. Also, some models have LED headlights, which let you mow in even short daylight hours or dim lighting conditions. So, check for the models that have this LED lighting.


Most battery-powered lawn mowers come with a wide range of accessories, which may or may not directly affect the lawn’s performance, but they definitely make your overall experience much better. So, one can find a few accessories like lawn mower covers, fast charging kits, extra batteries, and more. Choosing a lawnmower with any of these accessories will be an extra value for money.

User Experience:

Even a small lawn will take at least 30 minutes to mow effectively. Not having comfortable while riding the mower, then it can result in disaster. But it is essential to check online reviews and read testimonials to get accurate insights on how comfortably it can ride your lawnmower.


The battery-powered lawn mowers are available for a cost of less than 300. If you want a decent quality lawnmower with basic features, then you have to spend at least 500. Want to grab the best quality with all essential features, then go for the model that costs more than 700.

Most cordless mowers are sold with a battery and charger, which is not done always. So, one has to what is included in the package along with the warranty period, which comes separately for the mower’s body and battery before its purchase.


Some manufacturer offers a 2-year, 3-year or a 5-year long warranty on their product. Always select the product that comes with a longer warranty, here a 5-year warranty will be the best option to pick. Also, make sure to check the build quality of a mower before its purchase, as a sturdy build quality will let you use it for a longer time without any issues.

Benefits of a Cordless Lawn Mower:

When compared with traditional lawnmowers, this cordless battery-powered mower will provide a variety of benefits. Have a look at them and enjoy those benefits with the cordless models.

  • It is better to have a spare blade just in case. You can swap the blades often for effective job. Sharp blade will provide perfect and healthier cut.
  • To maintain grass height within range, you should mow more often.
  • To permit optimum airflow under the mower, we recommend to keep the deck clean.

How to Change a Lawn Mower Battery?

In a cordless lawn mower, batteries are present in one of the two places – under the seat or under the hood. To find out the places of batteries – first turn off the mower and remove the keys as well. Check out the both places. Once you find out, release the latch cover in order to access the battery. If you observe any bar holding or down strap, then carefully remove them.

After the battery is removed, make sure the ground wire is also removed. Check if the connectors are corroded. If so, then brush them clean using a stiff wire. But if the battery is corroded badly, then you can clean them using baking soda and water paste. After applying the paste, let it sit for 5 minutes. Later, you can rinse off the application using water and brush. To dry out the leftover water, we recommend using a soft cloth.

While following this process, make sure water or the mixture doesn’t enter in any battery cells. if the mixture gets into battery, then it will neutralize them – as baking soda can neutralize the battery acid.

To separate the connector from terminal, you should use a flat head screwdriver. Make sure you don’t force the cable off the terminal and to do it carefully and slowly.

Once the negative cable is removed, next take away the red cable. After removing the battery from holder, remove any debris or corrosion from the holder using water. Later, dry the holder completely.

Now place the new battery into the holder and don’t forget to tie-down the bar or strap. While re-attaching the cables, we recommend start with red cable. Once you connect the terminals respectively, cover the battery. Finally, test the battery to make sure it is working properly.

Frequently Asked Questions:

An electric lawn mower can be either battery-operated cordless (runs on rechargeable battery) or corded options (runs on a power cord plugged into a standard 15-volt outlet).

What to Look For in an Electric Lawn Mower

Let’s be honest there are some things in life that we buy because we feel we should, not necessarily because we need them. Hi-tech, high-powered devices are often seen as must haves, over just as serviceable but more humble equivalents. Lawn mowers are no different, with many people rushing out to buy a petrol mower when an electric one will do just fine. Besides this, electric mowers actually have many distinct advantages over petrol mowers, but if you’re unsure about the advantages and disadvantages of electric mowers compared to petrol mowers then do take a minute to read the advice at the bottom of our homepage on whether to choose Electric or Petrol to get further information.

Electric lawn mowers have existed for many years as the middle ground between the more powerful petrol powered mower, and the laborious manual lawn mower. They are favoured by many consumers for their cost effectiveness, a simplistic design that doesn’t demand a great deal of maintenance, and their compact and light weight nature, making them ideal for use by the young and old alike, and those with only limited storage space.

Due to their limited size and power limitations, it’s quite normal to require other tools in combination with an electric lawn mower, such as grass trimmers and edging tools, to help with particularly tough and hard to reach areas that are beyond the reach of the lawn mower blade. However petrol lawn mowers also suffer from the same limitations in many cases.

The best electric lawn mowers will address all the limiting factors in terms of size, weight, power, and overall performance to provide a well rounded solution that suits your needs perfectly. Of course, what suits you and what suits the next person’s needs will differ on any number of factors, but making the choice to go with an electric mower is of course the first step.

So if you know that you’re firmly in the electric camp then let’s continue on and see what features to look out for when buying the best electric lawn mower to suit your needs.

Useful, But Not Completely Essential Features

Worth careful consideration, but not going to be the difference between being able to cut the lawn or not:

  • Cutting height adjustment – Again not as necessary for smaller lawns, but you’ll need this feature if you aim to do more than just keep your lawn cut short on a regular basis. If you’ve got uneven or overgrown areas then you’ll need to be able to set the cutting height up high, and if you want to crop the lawn shorter then you’ll need to be able to set it lower. Most wheeled rotary mowers come with a simple means of adjustment to do this, but you might find it more of a task with a cylinder or hover mower.
  • Battery power – There is no denying the improved freedom that not having a cord trailing behind you will provide, but this comes at a price, normally 4 times the price to be exact. Also bear in mind that you’ll have the increased weight of a battery on board to contend with, this takes away the normally great benefit of electric mowers being at least half the weight of their petrol counterparts. For more detailed information check out our guide to the best cordless lawn mowers.
  • Ergonomic controls – It’s definitely a massive help to maintain comfort and ease of operation for all sorts of reasons, but if your lawn is really quite small indeed then this is probably an area that you can afford to skimp on.
  • Warranty Support – No one ever plans for the worst to happen, but it can be reassuring to know that help is at hand if it does. If your lawn mower breaks then you’ll need to get it sorted or else your lawn will grow out of control! Check carefully what each manufacturer can offer, most will offer some level of support, but others are better at it than others, with full on-line support showing service centre locations, and detailed trouble shooting information, whereas others only have an email or phone number which might not always deliver the most timely response.

Electric Lawn Mower Reviews

So, armed with your overview of knowledge on electric lawn mowers the next step is to look in a bit more detail at some of the best examples on the market today where you can take a view on which is the best electric mower for you.

Bosch Advanced Rotak 650 Lawn Mower

A highly rated and proven machine from one of the most trusted names in consumer products and electricals, this Bosch electric lawn mower features just the right combination of innovative features and cost effective, sensible design suitable for use by the fair weather gardener.

This mower features an innovative ‘ergoflex’ handle design that makes it comfortable for use by just about every size and shape of person. If you prefer to grip a handle with both hands facing up, or you are more inclined towards an upright ‘joystick’ type grip, then this mower is able to accommodate both thanks not only to both types of handle being present, but with ‘dead mans’ levers in all positions. Given this is the main point of interface between you and the mower it makes good sense that a great deal of time and effort has gone into designing it, and the good news is that it works really well, which should (fingers crossed) take some of the pain out of the task of mowing the lawn, which can only be a good thing I’m sure you’ll agree…

Black Decker BEMW471BH Lawn Mower

If you’re after a modern electric lawn mower that’s packed full of innovative features to make your life easier then look no further than this great product from Black and Decker.

With so many great features it’s difficult to know where to start with this but we’ll give it a go! Perhaps one of the most clever and useful features of this design is the grass collection box. Working on the age-old problem of trying to reduce the amount of times the grass box must be emptied during a mowing session, the solution here is in the form of a compressive mechanism that you operate with a foot pedal as and when you feel the box is getting too full, this compacts the grass and frees up space in the front of the box. When the box really is completely full and cannot be compacted any further you’ll see this is the case through the window located at the front…

Flymo SimpliGlide Hover Lawn Mower

If you’ve read our introductory page you’ll see that we’ve dismissed most hover type mowers as ineffective due to their integral grass box making the payload of the mower variable, which therefore reduces the ‘hover height’ of the mower and could leave it scraping along the ground rather than gliding effortlessly. This isn’t the case with hover mowers that don’t have an integral grass box (as is the case with this one), as no grass is collected the payload does not change.

Now that’s cleared up we need to determine whether a hover mower, regardless of whether it’s effective or not, is for you. Typically this type of hover mower is used on slopes and banks as it can be ‘swung’ by the operator in any direction, making it ideal when dealing with areas that are hard to walk on and would be even harder to walk on with a conventional mower. So if you have a particularly hilly or uneven garden this type of mower may have some merits, however if you plan to use it to mow decent, flat areas of lawn, it’s not going to be suitable given the mess of cut grass that it will spew out as it goes. So if you’re lucky enough to have large garden, and you can spare the expense, it would very useful to use this mower in conjunction with a conventional wheeled mower so that you’ve got all the tools you need to tackle every area…
