Discover A Great Cordless Lawn Mower 

Cordless Lawn MowerMowing the grass is often something you have to do on a regular basis or you could get slapped with HOA fines or other things, but sometimes they do not want you to use a gas mower for your yard and this is when you will turn to an electric lawn mower to help out. When you start to look at the electric mowers, you will notice you have the option with a lot of them for them to be cordless, corded, or even hand powered mowers. Since this is the case, you should make sure you know about all the different mowers you can use and the brands. In this case, we will be talking about the GreenWorks Pro GLM801600 21 Inch Cordless Lawn Mower. Once you read this review you will know if this is going to be the cordless lawn mower you should be using for your home or if you should be looking for a different mower to make sure your lawn is going to be properly mowed, without disrupting the entire neighborhood with the noise of a gas motor.

Features Of The GreenWorks Pro GLM801600 21 Inch Cordless Lawn Mower

  • The battery that is included with this mower is going to allow you to get about sixty minutes of mowing time on a single charge. This will make it easier for you to get a mower that is going to allow you to get all of the yard cut if it is smaller, but also have a chance to get through most of the yard that you are going to have if it is a little bit larger. Now, the cutting time is going to vary depending on the type of grass you are cutting, but in general, the battery is supposed to last you for about sixty minutes.
  • When you are looking at the electric motors you will find that some of the motors you are going to use are going to have some issues because they have brushes inside of them. This has a tendency to make it easier for them to wear out, but also decrease the efficiency of the motors, which is why you will find so many different motors wear out at different time frames. However, this is a mower, with an electric motor, that is brushless. This is going to make it not only last a longer period of time, but also will make the motor a lot more durable than what you would see with some of the other motors because it has less to go wrong inside of it.
  • The cutting deck you will find on this mower is going to be a 21-inch cut. This is quite a bit larger than what some of the other models that we have looked at that are cordless or even electric offers.So this will definitely cut down on the time you will have to spend outside mowing the lawn. Not to mention, a 21-inch cut is going to make it easier for you to get the mower through a lot of the gates and other places you would normally have to get the mowers through to get the grass cut.
  • Finally, with this being a cordless mower it will be easier for you to have a great product that is going to not only cut the grass but gives you the option on how you want to have it cut. The mower will have the option for a side discharge like most mowers would have. It also has a mulching feature too and the mulch feature is definitely something that we have not really seen that much on the corded mowers.


What I Liked With This Cordless Lawn Mower

Okay, well, I have to say the first thing I really like is the fact that this is an electric lawn mower that is going to have a steel deck. With most of the mowers that we have looked at like the, Black & Decker EM1500 Corded 15 Inch Mower, it has shown to have a plastic or a polymer type of product for the cutting deck. While these do work, they may not always stop the rocks that your mower is going to find or even worse the stick that you did not see in time to stop the mower and have it shooting up through the deck towards you at a speed faster than what you imagined.

A quick charge time is another factor that I really like with this mower. While I do not really love the charging mowers, I have found this is a mower that is going to have a quick charge time which will make it quite a bit easier for me to get the mowing done in a single day. In fact, the 30-minute charging time is going to something that can really make a difference in getting your lawn done in a single day or if you are going to end up spending a couple of days to finish up the lawn.

 

Finally, I love the fact this has the 3-in-1 feature to allow you to have the basics of the mowing from the discharges you would want to have. This is going to make it quite a bit easier for you to get all of the work done that you want to, but also have the grass cut in a way that you want to have it cut, instead of having to deal with the way the mower is going to be cutting the grass.

What I Did Not Care For 

Well, I have to say that I did not care for the fact this is a mower that uses a load sense technology. While this is a good concept, I have found that a lot of the new features have a tendency to have something go wrong with it. This is something else that I found can easily go wrong and since it is electric in nature is something else that I generally am unable to fix on my own and have to take it to the shop to get it fixed.

My Final Thoughts 

Overall, I like this is a good mower that is going to be working for everything that you need to have. However, at the same time, this is a mower that has a battery that will generally last you for an hour, depending on the type of yard you are mowing. Overall, I would say the GreenWorks Pro GLM801600 21 Inch Cordless Lawn Mower is definitely one that you should consider as it is a good mower and does a decent job of trimming the yard.
