3. GreenWorks 25142 10 Amp Corded 16-Inch Lawn Mower
This mower is a 10 amp machine and has the power to cut its way through touch grass. It is a quick and efficient machine and this is mainly thanks to the durable cutting deck that is 16”. It contains 2 in 1 feature meaning that there are both rear charging and mulching capabilities, and changing between them is easy to do. Grass can be cut to a very low level, with the shortest of the 5 being 5/8th of an inch right up to 2 5/8ths.
The rear wheels measure 7” and the front ones are 6”. There is a bale lever that is pulled to start mowing, and the machine stops when this is released. It will handle small stones perfectly. But bigger ones should be removed first. The mower has to be pushed but as it only weighs 37.5 lbs. this is not a problem. The mower runs of a cord so there is no battery to be charged.
