Best Overall: EGO Power+ Cordless Lawn Mower
It’s easy to have an ego when you use an EGO Power+ cordless lawn mower. While it doesn’t have the biggest battery (in terms of mAh), it charges in only 30 minutes, giving you 45 minutes of mowing. It works great for most any size yard, as long as you keep one battery charging while the other is in use. Oustanding maneuverability and very handy headlights seal the deal.

How We Picked

Growing up, you probably ended up mowing the lawn several hundred times. Alright, maybe not several hundred times, but it felt like a ton. Unfortunately, you probably used a gasoline lawn mower that weighed a ton and was really hard to start. Of course, this was during the time of Walkmans and portable CD players.

But today, technology has changed the way we do a lot of things. And now, lawn mowers are evolving too. In fact, now you can get a cordless lawn mower that is a lot lighter and easier to start than ever before (i.e. push button, smartphone app).

So, why are you still using an old gasoline lawn mower when you could get a cordless lawn mower that’s just as good?

Today, we are going to discuss the ten cordless lawn mowers that we feel are the best right now. There were plenty of cordless lawn mowers to look at, but these had the best prices the best quality, with the most features.

#1 EGO Power+ Cordless Lawn Mower

Specs:

  • Deck Size: 20 Inches
  • Battery Voltage: 56 Volts
  • Weight: 56.2 Pounds
  • Self-Propelled: No
  • Attachments: Yes

The EGO Power+ is a great cordless lawn mower with a strong, high-voltage battery. It comes fully assembled with everything you need to get started. All you need to do is pull it out of the box, charge the battery, install the battery, and go. The battery will take about 30 minutes to charge fully before you are ready to go.

EGO Power+ Cordless Lawn Mower grip

Compared to a gasoline-powered lawn mower, this mower is very lightweight. In fact, it’s about 20 pounds less the most gasoline-powered lawn mowers, weighing in at only 56.2 pounds. Because it’s so light, it makes it easier to work with it for extended periods of time without getting overworked.

EGO Power+ Cordless Lawn Mower in action on grass

With a 20-inch deck size, it is easy to maneuver around tight areas without having to back up and/or readjust multiple times. The blade is very close to the edge of the actual deck size, making it easy to get right up on whatever you’re trying to cut down. But, the deck is made out of ABS plastic so you don’t want to bang it up against too many things as it may dent it up or scratch it.

EGO Power+ Cordless Lawn Mower blade

Handling the grass clippings can be managed in one of three ways. One, you can use the side discharge set up which doesn’t blow the grass very far away (just outside of the right wheel). Or two, use the bagging attachment to capture all of the grass clippings. One thing we would like to point out is that the bagging attachment works great for whatever the EGO picks up; but, you’re probably only going to see grass as the suction from the blades is not very powerful (i.e. you won’t see sticks and other fine debris in the bagging attachment). And finally, you can use a mulching attachment too. Surprisingly, this attachment works fairly well leaving behind pretty small clippings (unless you have a lot of tall, wet grass).

EGO Power+ Cordless Lawn Mower battery

Powering the EGO is a 56-volt rechargeable battery that lasts around 45 minutes under normal use (this does not include tall grass). To recharge the battery takes approximately 30 minutes and you’re back up and running again. We recommend buying a second battery so that you can stay up and running for as long as you need.

EGO Power+ Cordless Lawn Mower folded

When you’re done mowing, all you have to do is fold up the cordless lawn mower and roll it wherever you want. The Power+ makes it a breeze to carry/push the lawn mower wherever you need, even when folded up, as you can use the handle to help navigate it easily. Because it folds down so small, you can put it almost anywhere; in fact, you can even stand it up on its side. While not in use, EGO Recommends that you disconnect the batteries and leave them on the charger or on a shelf that is protected from water and/or humidity (i.e. a cool, dry place).

What We Like

All electric lawn mowers will be quiet, but the EGO Power+ is amazingly quiet. In all honesty, it’s quieter than a car that is idling. The battery last around 45 minutes, but only takes 30 minutes to charge, so with two batteries you can easily finish up your yard and no time. And, it has LED headlights so that you can work at any time of the day or night.
