EGO Power+ Cordless
Sun Joe iON16LM
There is a lot to like about this electric grass mower. But, if we were forced to choose one particular aspect of the iON16LM model that defines this machine better than the rest of them, its environmentally friendly design would probably take the cake.
Thanks to the brushless motor that runs on a rechargeable 40V EcoSharp battery system, you will be able to ditch oil, gas, those obnoxious fumes, as well as the inconvenient pull-cords and extension cords. The battery will give you up to 40 minutes of runtime on a single charge with no carbon emissions.
But despite the eco-friendly and seemingly toothless design, what we have here is a real dynamo. The said brushless 600W motor gives you increased battery efficiency, outstanding motor performance, as well as extended motor life. It should last for about 2 thousand hours, so you'll be able to keep your mowing game strong season after season.
The motor itself is robust but so are its components. The durable steel blade cuts with solid precision. It doesn't feature the most outstanding cutting width but a 15-inch wide path that it mows in a single pass will be enough for your average user.
Motor aside, there's a lot about the model's design that we could talk about. For starters, we could mention the corrosion-resistant deck, a part that makes the whole machine quite a bit more durable to the wear and tear of time.
The rugged front and rear all-terrain wheels also deserve some recognition as they make it much easier for you to maneuver in and around tight spaces.
Sure, it has one or two flaws. The biggest issue that most people have with it is the relatively loud motor that runs counter to the advertised "whisper-quiet operation". But it really isn't that much louder than your average cordless electric lawn mower, so we wouldn't really hold it that much against the model.
Plus, what it lacks in quietness, the mower more than makes up for in ease of use. You won't need any tools to adjust the model nor to tweak its settings. It takes but a single push of a button to get this machine started. The collapsible ergonomic handle maximizes user comfort and allows you to adjust it the way you see fit.
Speaking of adjusting things, the 6-position height adjustment lever makes it really easy to choose the grass cutting height. Finally, the grass indicator window will let you know when to empty the bag if you choose to go with the rear bagging mode.
To put all of it differently, the Sun Joe iON16LM is one of the most environmentally conscious choices. But don't let its friendly nature fool you. What we have here is a real lawn ranger, a powerful machine that will help you keep your backyard looking nice and pristine.
Black & Decker BEMW482ES
Control the Mow
The Black & Decker BEMW482ES will prove a good choice for customers who are really particular about their lawn. The kind of individuals who just won't settle for your average job and need to have every part of it under their control.
The people behind it advertise this model as a machine designed for maneuverability and we can't say that they're wrong about that. First, the mower comes equipped with a pivot control handle, the sort of handle that makes it really easy to steer. Aside from that, the handle also provides a comfortable but firm grip.
Among other things, the model is designed to power through the tallest and thickest grass. To help you with that, the manufacturers have installed rugged wheel treads, the sort of treads that will give you a solid amount of control in any type of grass.
The simplicity of operation is always a good thing when it comes to lawn mowers. You don't want to spend five minutes adjusting the settings and choosing one parameter over the other. And, with this machine, you won't have to. The huge orange button on top of the handle will give you that instant push-button start that you want out of your electric lawn mower.
No Vegetation Stands a Chance
With this model, the folk at Black & Decker have mostly emphasized its easy maneuverability that helps you get through tight spaces, as well as handle the otherwise difficult yard obstacles.
But we would say that the winged blade construction is just as impressive and important to the mower's image. Giving you a 30% better clipping collection rate, a blade like that optimizes mowing performance and allows you to waste less time on your lawn.
Speaking of improved performance, the model features a 17-inch cutting width, a pretty solid number for your average yard. It might not seem like that much of a difference compared to the usual 14-15 inches but it all adds up and, in the end, you'll be able to cut the same amount of grass while making a couple fewer laps.
In terms of flexibility, the model incorporates the usual 6 height adjustment positions that will allow you to mow from 1 to 3 inches. Thanks to the aforementioned winged blade, the mower zips around trees and stone-lined flower beds with effortless ease.
Be it minor twigs or thatchy weeds, there's no type of vegetation that this machine isn't equipped to handle. The bag that comes with the mower will prevent the debris from nicking your shins. It holds a fairly decent amount of clippings and it isn't difficult to take the bag off and put it back on.
In short, the sporty, race car-like look certainly makes this model stand out from the otherwise bland mower crowd. But you don't get this machine for the looks. You get it because of how much control it gives the user and how easy it makes for you to maintain your backyard.

What Is an Electric Lawn Mower?
Every house owner desires to have a flawless lawn and often applies a lot of efforts for that. Electric lawn mowers facilitate this complex task and make lawns neat. There are a wide variety of lawn mowers, yet electric models are one of the simplest and the most effective. They are absolutely harmless for the environment; they are quiet and lightweight. Hence, they can be used virtually by anyone, beginners and professionals alike. We have reviewed 5 most popular and high-performing models available and highlighted the key features that are worth taking into consideration when choosing one.
What Features to Compare
When you choose an electric lawn mower, you need to determine the place and the way of use. These parameters will affect the type of a lawn mower. If you have a big lawn with an access to a power supply, it is better to choose an electric model. The electric lawn mowers are highly powerful and are able to work for a long time as the length of power cord is the only limit. But even this problem can be easily solved through the use of extenders. If you have a small land plot without a source of power supply, you should pay attention to battery-powered models. They are able to process the areas up to 0.25 acres and work for 45 minutes; those figures depend on battery capacity and load. Note that an additional battery can always increase the performance. When you choose a battery-powered model, you should consider that its power is less than that of electric models, but, still, it is self-sufficient and is not bound by a power cord.
You should necessarily consider performance of a mower. First of all, determine the cutting width as it will affect the number of sweeps on your lawn. The bigger the cutting width is, the quicker the mowing will be. However, if you have a small lawn of intricate landscaping with plenty of pits and obstacles, it is better to opt for a narrow lawn mower since it is more maneuverable and suitable for this purpose. The cutting height adjustment will let you set the needed height of a cutting deck for specific grass. Our next advice is to consider the cutting modes. The bagging mode will release you from the need to collect grass by hands, and the mulching mode will allow for fine grinding of grass and fertilizing the ground, maintaining the right humidity at the same time.
Surely, you have to take an interest in additional functions that contribute to usability and facilitate the storage. The capacity of a grass collection bag will be vital for the frequency of cleaning. The adjustability of a handle will let you tailor its height to your needs, and foldable design will give you an opportunity to store the tool conveniently. The battery charge indicator will let you know when you should charge the battery. Besides, don’t forget to specify the weight as the light models are easier to push, yet the heavier models are more stable on rough surfaces and they provide more precise cutting.
To sum it all up, a simplicity of maintenance will give you an opportunity to work effectively.
