A couple minor design issues that are annoying: The side discharge shoot is not really held on securely and will come off if you bump into anything with it. I know I am probably old fashioned to even use it, but I don't like bothering with a bag and using it in mulching mode slows it down and uses up the battery too fast. Also, the battery is very difficult to remove from the mower. You have to press on the release bar while pulling it out, but the battery does not stick out enough to get a good grip on it. I have found that a paint can opener provides just the amount of extra leverage to get the battery out. Keep the paint can opener in the spare battery compartment. Also a peculiarity with the battery charger: I don't know if this is normal or just an issue with the one I have, but if you have just run down the battery while mowing and then put the battery on the charger right away, the charge light will turn green very quickly and it will not charge. I have to let the battery rest 10-15 min before putting it on the charger.
--- On to the review ---
This thing is pretty awesome. I was a bit nervous cause there were so few reviews on it. I previously had and loved the brushed corded 16" mower from GreenWorks... it worked so well that I decided to untether myself for my birthday. I was convinced after the corded electric mower worked flawlessly and my 40v GreenWorks brushless weed eater worked so well.
So the mower went on sale on Prime Day and I jumped on it. First impressions are that the design engineers are clearly continuing improvements. The handle could fold on my corded mower, but nowhere near as easily as this thing can... I don't even like this feature and wouldn't use it regularly, but I can still appreciate the improvements that other people may use. The battery bay holds two batteries... but here's the kicker, I mowed some tall thick St. Augustine grass and finished the front yard you see in my images with a single battery... I suspect that as the blade gets a bit duller i'll need to swap batteries or sharpen the blade again. But that was a pleasant surprise.
I also really like the large wheels, the longer radius makes maneuverability a charm and it gets over bumps with ease. The bagging of blades works well too even though I only tested it momentarily (I've switched to mulching cause there's no need to strip the lawn of future nutrients). I haven't figured out what the side discharger is for exactly, but it looks pretty cool. Like an exhaust pipe on a racecar or something. The way I see it, you want to pick up the clippings or you want to spread them around the lawn... not spray the area you just mowed or are about to mow. But it just clicks into place if you want it and I appreciate them adding it, even if it raised the cost by a dollar or something.
The auto sensing lawn height feature is okay. I give it only 3 stars out of 5. It certainly works, but it kicks in about 2 seconds (or about 2 feet ) after you technically needed it. It's like the sensor or Ammeter has to measure taller grass for a few seconds before it kicks in. But by then your moving past that spot and might have missed a few clippings. It hasn't happened yet, but again, the blade is new and sharp. It would have been neater to have a sensor adjust on the fly up or down. It's all electric and the motor is brushless, there shouldn't be much wear and tear from constantly increasing and decreasing the motor speed to accommodate the lawn at that moment. Now, all this said, even on low speed it was cutting like a champ. I would walk slowly and then quickly while the mower was on the lowest setting to see if it changed performance, and it was virtually the same.
All in all it functions exactly like you'd expect it to. I like the dual bay battery compartment. And the attention to details all over, like the cable runs have loops to pass through, the battery bay door has magnets to keep it shut, and details like that are visible all over, it's just very well thought out.
If I'm being extremely nitpicky, here are some things I'd change (aside from the auto-motor-speed change I mentioned above).
1) Amazon listing... I almost knocked a star because whoever is putting these things on Amazon has no clue what they are doing. I see random mowers paired with un-related mowers, yet the reviews are for both? And I don't see all the options on the same listing. For example, this mower bounced around between listings multiple times in like 3 days. And this mower has another listing identical to it, just without the battery and charger (the one I'm reviewing here)... yet somehow they aren't paired together? And it's not exactly clear how this mower differs from the older version other than it's maybe a newer model? Is it better or worse?... it's a complete freaking mess and I'm extremely annoyed. But it's not actually the products fault... so I convinced myself to keep the star. Get your blank together.
2) The battery bay door doesn't open very far. In fact it doesn't even open to 90 degrees, I'd like it to go to 120 at least.
3) The lifter is on point. It's so easy and works so well. But it's fastened to the right side of the mower or something and the left side is just a taddd looser. Even though it has zero impact on performance or usability or comfort. I could notice.
4) I promise I'm not too lazy to bend over and swap batteries. But two live ports would be neat (even though I had plenty of battery left on the first battery haha (like I said, nitpicking!)). But I wouldn't be willing to pay much more if it raised the cost alot.
1) I can't believe how easy it is to adjust. I have their corded mower and I didn't think it could get any easier... and here I am being proven wrong. I don't know if I was just scarred by my old gas honda mower or what, but that thing was an absolute pain to change the deck height. I used it alot on my corded version because if I'm going to be busy the next two weeks, I can just drop it a notch an go an extra couple days without mowing. Or If I know I'm going on a 2 week vacation next weekend, I can raise it since I'm going to mow again right before I leave.
2) I knew the big wheels would help, but they help more than I thought. I hope they last as long as short wheels, since the moment is higher on them in general. But I'm glad they upgraded the wheels.
3) 20" deck means a 19" inch blade iirc. I appreciate the large mowing swath. Not only did mowing go faster cause I wasn't messing with a cord, but I was cutting larger swaths than my old corded 16", so I was done in like 40% of the time that it normally takes me.
4) The 4Ah batteries are great. I can weedeat the front in one go with it. and then use the other battery to mow in one go with it. And they charge so fast too. Not that I've needed them to come off the charger and go straight to the yard, but it's nice having that option.
5) It's silly but the black with green trim color scheme looks legit. I like it better than the opposite that my corded mower has. (green with black trim).
6) Also, it mows evenly forward and backwards. My old corded lawnmower mowed about a third of an inch shorter when I pushed it forward than when I pulled it back (ostensibly because it was too light). So not only was I goofing around with the cord. But all even mowing had to be completed forwards. Not an issue with this mower.
Overall I'm thoroughly satisfied. I'll comment back if longevity is ever an issue. But I expect a minimum of 5 years out of this guy... and I'd prefer if it was more like 10. That said, I'll cut the batteries some slack. I expect I'll buy a new pair in about 5 years to help me get to the EOL. They claim 2000 charges and I mow like once every 10 days during the summer... So maybe they'll go the full 10.
I notice that the motor will cycle down through thinner grass and power up through thicker grass automatically. This mower is not self-propelled but I can push it with one hand easily (I have a flat yard though). This also has the option to mulch or bag. To bag, you just remove a stopper piece, and then place the bag on. To mulch, replace the stopper.
The battery on this does not last as long as my black and decker, despite that mower also being self-propelled. The Greenworks can complete exactly one-half of the yard before needing to be charged. Either I'll have to mow on two separate days or purchase a second battery to charge while the one is in use. So I would say this is best for small yards.
The battery charges with a separate charger you plug into the wall. This mower also has a slot to put the battery in when not in use, so you could also put your "spare" battery in there. They recommend NOT storing the battery in the mower because the battery will drain.
This mower is QUIET compared to my black and decker battery mower. Compared to a traditional gas mower it's REALLY QUIET! It's not whisper-soft but the difference is startling. You still need to turn it off to have a conversation with your neighbor though.
The battery for this mower is much smaller than my black and decker which easily weighs 40 pounds. This one can be carried with one hand.
If you have never had an electric mower, you will find that they are easier to maintain (no oil, no gas, hardly any maintenance). The only thing you have to really do is clean it periodically as you would a regular mower (grass build up) and get the blades sharpened when they dull. Nothing else to really go wrong on them. It's also MUCH easier to start them, just push a button.
