1. DeWalt DCMWP233U2 Battery Mower

DeWalt DCMWP233U2 Battery Mower

The DeWalt DCMWP233U2 battery mower is a lightweight, compact electric mower, and it runs for 75 minutes on the highest setting—well above what it takes most other battery mowers to finish a single lawn. With the battery and energy management system, it also has a runtime of 60 minutes on a single charge.

This mower weighs 52 pounds, which is on the lighter side for this type of cleaner, but it can still handle a 1/4-acre lawn. The mower has a 20-in. cutting path, which is perfect for a small yard (the 10-amp motor makes short work of thicker grass). The handle folds down, and when folded, the mower takes up about 14 cubic feet of space. If you need a large mower, a 30-in. deck is available, and at 84 pounds, it’s not as light as the 20-in. model, but it can still handle a decent-sized yard.

The 2-in-1 battery and charger charge quickly (45 minutes), and with a 70-minute battery charge, it will take about five hours to cut the lawn. The mower has a cutting height adjustment lever with 5 settings, and it features an adjustable wheels package and an ergonomic handle. It comes with two 10.0 Ah batteries, but you’ll need two or three more depending on how much time you have to cut the lawn. The mower has a one-year limited warranty.

2. DR Power Equipment CE75021XEN0 Battery Mower

DR Power Equipment CE75021XEN0 Battery Mower

The DR Power Equipment CE75021XEN0 Battery Mower is a beefed-up version of the original DR 82021XE model. It offers a smaller, trimmer, and lighter design, and it’s trimmer enough to maneuver around small obstacles, shrubs, and flower beds. The 21″ deck is big enough to cut grass in up to 1.2″ tall areas, and like other battery mowers, it’s electric start and self-propel.

 The 850-watt brushless motor is powerful and very quiet, and unlike a gas mower, this electric mower is remarkably quiet at 68 decibels. The 5.0-amp-hour battery, which is rated for 50 minutes of run time, is rechargeable and takes just 2 hours to recharge, so it’s not inconvenient to have a charger handy. The mulch plug, which can be attached for bagging or left in place to chop grass up into a mulch, is a nice feature for conserving water, and the machine can be stored vertically for compact storage.

 The 7-position cutting height adjuster allows you to adjust the mower to a height between 1.2″ and 3″, and when cutting at higher, faster speeds, the steering is firm and the machine handles well. The 7-inch front casters make it easy to maneuver, and the 10-inch rear wheels are large and resist holes and dents well. The DR Power Equipment battery mower has a sleek, modern look, and it’s backed by a two-year residential warranty, a 90-day commercial warranty, and free shipping.

3. Ego LM 2135 Battery Mower

Ego LM 2135 Battery Mower

The Ego LM 2135 is a battery-powered mower, which means no power cords, no gas, and no fumes. The mower has a potent 56-volt 7.5-amp lithium-ion battery, so it doesn’t take long to charge. And thanks to the mower’s strong battery, it has enough juice to get you through about 60 minutes of cutting. The mower is light and easy to maneuver, and thanks to its snap-on deck, you can quickly swap out the cutting deck for a mulching deck or a bag side discharge deck.

 The mower uses an electronically controlled 7-position deck height adjustment lever to easily adjust the cutting height. The mower is also self-propelled, so it’s as easy as pushing a button to drive it around. The mower has a weak battery indicator, so it’s hard to tell what’s happening with the mower’s battery and charging status. Also, the mower had issues making the first cut, but Ego (the mower’s manufacturer) says that’s a common issue. And, while it might seem odd to some, we found the mower easier to use with a 16-inch or 18-inch deck than with a 20-inch (the mower’s official specs).

The mower is quiet, and cutting grass with the mower is actually enjoyable, thanks to the mower’s good traction. The mower’s low center of gravity makes it very stable, so you should be able to quickly mow around any obstacles. The mower does have a few drawbacks compared to gas mowers, including slower ground speeds, higher noise levels from the underside of the mower, and a higher price.

Features We Like

  • Select Cut
  • 56V ARC Battery
  • 3-in-1
  • 7 Cutting Positions
  • Adjustable Speed

4. Greenworks 2532802 Battery Mower

Greenworks 2532802 Battery Mower

The 20-inch Greenworks 2532802 Battery Mower is a terrific option if you’re tired of replacing your gas mower’s worn-out, expensive battery annually and don’t want to ever deal with gas again. This mower comes with a pair of Greenworks 2.4-amp 4Ah 24-volt batteries, so you’ll be able to mow your lawn for about 45 minutes on one charge, and you’ll get plenty of extra run time if you combine both of the batteries.

The cut quality is excellent, with the mower leaving a nice, clean path, and mowing in nice straight lines, and it’s fairly quiet even at higher speeds. The cutting deck has sturdy plastic handles that slide up and down, which make it easy to adjust the height. The battery runtimes are impressive, and getting a second battery means you can mow your lawn twice without recharging, which is a nice feature. The mower comes with two batteries, but the manufacturer warns that the mower’s 48-volt system does not support the additional Ah capacity of the 4Ah batteries: It only works with 3Ah batteries, so the mower can only cut a lawn for 45 minutes with two 4Ah batteries.

The mower’s 20-inch steel deck is thicker than most, so it produces a cleaner cut in less time. It’s also quieter and more powerful, and it has a powerful 12-amp motor. This mower has dual LED headlights and a rear-bagger to bag the grass clippings, and it has a handy mulching mode, which uses the clippings as fertilizer rather than bagging them.

This mower’s 4-in-1 system gives it more flexibility than other mowers. It has a rear discharge option for bagging grass clippings, it has a manual rear-bagger to match, and it has a mulching mode for leaves and grass that you don’t want to bag. The mower is well-built, and it comes with a two-year warranty.

5. Ryobi RY401170VNM Battery Mower

Ryobi RY401170VNM Battery Mower

Powered by Ryobi’s second generation 40-volt lithium-ion battery, the RY401170VNM mower delivers powerful, efficient performance. With a large 6Ah battery this mower offers up to 45 minutes of run time before needing to recharge. The ergonomic, single-motion Easy Lift bagger release makes emptying the bagger simple and convenient. The mower is lightweight at 65 lbs, making it extremely maneuverable in your yard. The 7-position height adjustment allows you to choose the lawn height that’s right for your yard with the single-point height adjustment lever.

At 20 inches the RY401170VNM is 12 inches smaller than the average gas mower, and it weighs in at 76 pounds, 25 pounds less than the leading gas-powered mower. That makes it lighter and easier to maneuver, and its 40-volt battery and brushless motor give it plenty of power. The 20-inch cutting deck does a great job of slicing through thick grass, and its 25-inch turning radius makes maneuverability easy. The mower has two height settings, and the first time we went to use it in tall grass the mower adjusted itself automatically once we got to the taller setting. That’s one of the rare features that all battery mowers should have. Ryobi is so proud of the RY401170VNM that it comes with a 5-year warranty, and we have no reason to doubt it.

6. Kobalt 2041B-06 Battery Mower

 Kobalt 2041B-06 Battery Mower

The Kobalt KM 2041B-06 Battery Mower is the lightest, most compact 40-volt mower. It’s twice as efficient as gas-powered mowers, and it’s compact enough to store upright to save precious room in your garage. If you plant a lot of trees, lawn, or garden around your house, the KM 2041B-06 is a great choice because it mulches, so your lawn won’t smell of gas when it dries.

The mower’s maneuverability and height adjustment made this the easiest mower to use, not only because of its light weight, but because you can adjust it with one hand from any angle. The mower has a generous 20-inch cutting width, which is ideal for the average lawn, and the 360-degree rotating handle lets you cut grass around trees, shrubs, and flower beds. The KM 2041B-06 still weighs 21 pounds, so its less maneuverable than some of the other mowers, but it’s packed solid with enough power, and it runs long enough on a single charge, so you can get a lot of mowing done (up to 40 minutes on a single charge).

Battery life on the KM 2041B-06 was longer than others, but like the other mowers tested here, it works best on short, medium, and tall grasses, so if you have a yard with lots of tall and dense weeds or a lot of tree and flower beds, it won’t last as long. It’s also not the most efficient mower, but it’s a compromise that’s well worth its low weight and compact size.

Features We Like

  • Battery Powered
  • Brushless Motor
  • Three Different Cutting Styles

7. Sun Joe MJ401C-XR Battery Mower

Sun Joe MJ401C-XR Battery Mower

The Sun Joe MJ401C-XR is the most affordable cordless mower in this roundup. It’s ideal for small yards or tight spaces, and its 28-volt battery provides up to a quarter acre of continuous mowing per charge, and it comes with a convenient 10.6-gallon grass catcher so you don’t have to empty the bag every time you need to mow. The 3-position manual height adjustment allows you to tailor the cutting height to your lawn’s needs.

The motor is plenty powerful enough to cut grass down to a uniform height, but like most battery-powered mowers, it sits a little high off the ground, making it a little more challenging to mow under low hanging tree branches. The MJ401C-XR comes with a 10.6-gallon (40-liter) grass bag that’s easy to detach (and dump).

One disadvantage is the battery charge indicator, which doesn’t display the level of charge on the battery, meaning you’ll have to wait until you’re almost out of power before recharging. Other than that, we liked the Sun Joe MJ401C-XR. It’s a good choice if you’re limited on space or don’t have access to a natural gas hookup in your yard.

Features We Like

  • Built-in LED headlights
  • Control panel is intuitive and easy to operate

8. Wen 40441 Battery Mower

Wen 40441 Battery Mower

The Wen 40441 Battery Mower is versatile with two 4 amp-hour batteries included. The 40441 mower is lightweight and easy to maneuver, thanks to its 21-inch cutting deck. It’s heavy, though, and a bit top-heavy, so the handle is angled downward at odd angles to give you leverage and balance. The 40441’s cutting deck is wide enough to bag or mulch, and the adjustable rear deflector helps avoid scalping if your grass is longer than usual.

The mower has 21-inch steel deck, which is a bit narrower than competing models, but it’s sturdy and stable. It’s also quiet, so the mower doesn’t emit as many fumes or engine noises. The mower took about 1 hour and 15 minutes to charge for the first time, which cuts the runtime to about 23 minutes on a 4Ah battery, or almost an hour on a 2Bh. The 40441 comes with a 4-amp-hour battery and charger, and a 2-amp-hour battery (and charger), which should provide plenty of power for most yards.

The mower weighs 72 pounds, which sounds like a lot, but it’s relatively easy to push around, even for tall people. The Wen 40441 Battery Mower costs less than the competition, but it’s far from the cheapest model in its class, and it’s missing some key features such as dual batteries and self-propelled steering. That said, the Wen 40441 Battery Mower has a solid balance of price and power and makes it into our best battery-powered mower list. It is a good mower for small to medium-sized lawns in suburbs or urban areas.

9. Sun Joe 24V-X2-17LM Battery Mower

Sun Joe 24V-X2-17LM Battery Mower

If you’re somebody who likes to mow the lawn regularly, you might already be familiar with the Snapper 1687884. It’s a high-quality but affordable battery mower that can do most of what a gas-powered mower can, but with less noise and fumes. It’s especially suited for frequent mowing, and the battery is easy to install and charge.

The only problem with the mower is that it’s fairly heavy, which can be problematic if you tend to mow on hilly or uneven terrain. An adjustable handle and front wheels allow you to keep it from rolling backward at steep inclines, but the longer-length rear wheels can make it a handful with inclines steeper than 20 degrees. That said, if you stick to mostly flat or level ground, the Snapper 1687884 is a great mower. The 1687884 is powered by a 40-volt lithium-ion battery that features AutoCut technology, which adjusts battery charge based on the mower’s speed.

The mower’s deck has six cutting heights ranging from 1.5 to 4 inches, and you can choose from side discharge or mulching. There’s also a 16-gallon bag included, but you can easily upgrade it to a 52-gallon bag if you want. The mower weighs 69 pounds, but the battery and charger each weigh in at 27 pounds, so you can carry two fully assembled mowers and the batteries with ease. All-in-all, the Snapper 1687884 is a solid choice for anyone who wants the gas-free mowing experience but doesn’t want to compromise quality for affordability.

Features We Like

10 Skil PM4910-10 Battery Mower

Sun Joe 24V-X2-17LM Battery Mower

The Skil PM4910-10 is one of the best battery-powered mowers. It cuts grass up to 2.5 inches tall and weighs 113 pounds, making it heavier than gas mowers, but it cuts faster, has a longer run time, and features an automatic charger, which makes it simple to charge the battery. he mower comes with a 20-minute timer and a 30-minute boost option, and charging time is 30 minutes with a 5.0Ah battery.

The mower can be adjusted to cut at different angles, and the mower comes with a 20-inch blade. The price for this mower is higher than some battery mowers, but the power you get makes it a worthwhile investment. It’s also important to note that you are giving up the convenience of a gas mower, which is nice if you have a lot of grass to mow, or if the mower is outside or on a deck, where it doesn’t need to be parked in your garage.

The mower is backed by a six-month warranty. Its primary drawback is that battery charge takes a long time, so you’ll need to plan ahead for lawn mowing (or plan on getting a second battery).

Things to Consider When Buying a Push Battery Lawn Mower

Long known for being portable and environmentally friendly, push battery lawn mowers have become the most used garden tool in many homes. They are well able to replace traditional mowers which are rather energy-intensive and therefore less economical, and sometimes interfere with work with its wiring.

However, buying the best push battery powered lawn mower can be a real dilemma as one can find several models with different features on the market. In order to help you then, we have decided to bring together the main purchase criteria for this garden equipment for you in this very comparison.

  • Battery and voltage

Currently, the most powerful accumulators known are Lithium-Ion batteries; it has been concluded by test that their reliability is much more superior compared to other types of batteries. The main advantages of Lithium-Ion batteries are that their operating cycles are less regular, that is, they discharge less and charge regularly. In addition, they have no memory effect.

For electric lawnmowers, the choice of the power of its battery comes down to considering the area of ​​the mowing ground. Then, it should be noted that the use of powerful devices which generally have voltages of around 35 V makes it possible to carry out quick mowing sessions in complete efficiency.

  • Width and height of cut

This value defines the width of the strip that the mower manages to mow in one pass. In our opinion, it is always better to choose a large cutting width since you are working with a cordless electric mower operating with a battery which may or may not have a limited autonomy.

You will come across mowers with a variable cutting width usually from 28 to 45 cm; but it is still important to adapt it to the surface of your garden. Also remember to check that the mower you are going to buy offers an adjustable cutting height either continuously or by notch. We invite you to opt for a centralized adjustment system because it is enough to manipulate a single lever.

  • Cutting system

What about grass clippings after your mower has passed over the lawn? It is in this paragraph that we will talk about it. Some cordless electric mowers are equipped with a collection box that automatically collects the grass clippings, while other models incorporate a mulching function.

The latter allows the device to directly chop the cut grass very finely and spread it on the lawn to serve as natural fertilizer at the end; note, however, that it does not spoil the look of your lawn at all.

  • Robustness-and-ergonomics

Consideration of the build quality of cordless mowers is a key point in ensuring its durability. We are still not certain of the risks of accidents that can occur during their handling, especially on slightly uneven ground. By choosing a solid and robust device, it is certain to have a mower that will serve you for long periods of time.

In addition, the design of your lawn mower should contribute to providing you with comfort and ease of use. For example, its handlebars must have the right height in order to prevent back and arm pain. It must be as easy to push without offering resistance; to do this, it is important to check that the wheels have good grip.

  • The price

Anyway, a cordless electric mower is currently sold between 100 and 600 euros for the mid and high-end versions. Power, appearance, brand, and accessories, as well as features, vary by price. However, for infrequent lawn maintenance and non-professional use, there’s no reason to spend over $500 on a push battery-powered mower.


How to charge the battery of a mower?

To start, make sure your charger is compatible with your battery capacity. That way, you can be sure it’s charging properly. In fact, most mower manufacturers include a charger in the package to make your life easier. So, take the battery and place it in the battery charger slot.

How long does a cordless lawn mower last?

Depending on the model, the autonomy of a cordless lawnmower can vary considerably. Indeed, this autonomy depends as much on the power of the battery as on the power of the mower, because the more powerful it is, the more energy it consumes. The battery life of a cordless lawn mower ranges on average from 20 minutes for entry-level models to 60 minutes for the best cordless mowers.

How much does a cordless lawn mower cost?

To give you an idea, a cheap lawnmower suitable for small areas can be purchased for around 200 euros and between 300 and 600 euros for more complex models that can mow several hundred square meters or have additional settings.

What are the benefits of a cordless lawn mower?

The cordless electric mower is becoming more and more popular among gardeners because it combines the advantages of corded models while ignoring their disadvantages. The cordless lawnmower, powered by one or more batteries, gives the user complete freedom. Indeed, it does not require an electrical outlet to operate and can therefore be used anywhere. The push battery-powered lawn mower is environmentally friendly and harmless to the user’s health. It uses no fuel and emits no hazardous gases as it is powered by an electric motor. In addition to being more environmentally friendly, electric motors are less noisy than their thermal counterparts and require less maintenance.
