These mowers are equipped with a brushless motor. Brushless motors increase torque, deliver maximum power with less heat, and drain the battery. The GreenWorks Pro 80V Self-Propelled and Handheld Shears have the same ability as the 160cc gasoline engine.

The mower has built-in Smart Cut technology that rotates when it hits tall, dense grass, so it lowers and uses less effort to cut shorter, thinner grass. It saves battery power when mowing and extends the working time when you do not drive on tall, dense grass. The mower then remains on the lawn at high speed. It will drain the battery faster.

Powerful Battery

The mowers are equipped with a powerful 80 V / 4 Ah battery. There couldn’t be more powerful, right? This powerful battery is one of the main features of this cordless electric lawnmower. The battery supports fast charging; it only takes an hour to charge fully. When the battery is fully charged, the machine can mow the lawn continuously for one hour.

If you need to mow for more than an hour, we always recommend carrying a spare battery, so you never end up in the middle of a job.

The mower is equipped with an LED indicator that shows the battery status, and you know when to charge the batteries.

Cut Quality

One of the main features of this product is the Smart Cut technology. It seems to be there. The machine has some artificial intelligence that can detect the grass’s thickness and height to be cut. The blade can adjust the power according to the length and thickness. For example, if the grass is thinner and the size is shorter, the machine can automatically adjust its power to a lower setting while still getting the best cut possible. On the other hand, if the grass is thicker and longer, the mower can adjust the power to get a more robust cut and make the job easier.

Three Types of Discharge

It’s great that this cutter has three different types of emissions: side discharge, rear discharge, and mulch.

Side discharge – When mowing, grass can be discharged from the sides of the mower. This way, you can go forward and throw debris on either side of the blade.

Rear ejection: this avoids cleaning work. A collection bag should be placed at the end of the blade where dirt can be thrown. It means that you have less to worry about the mower.

Mulching: With mulch, you can cut the grass into small pieces and spread them over the surface. It also acts as a fertilizer. There is nothing better when you have a two in one resort!

Weight and Size

The blade weighs 79.5 pounds. It’s not at all light, although it weighs 10 pounds less than our favorite Snapper electric lawnmower. However, it is going well. Its weight is above average due to the use of thick steel. If you choose the self-propelled version, you will never notice overweight.

Lawn Mower Dimensions: 32.3 x 18.2 x 20.4 inches wide.

Storage is Easy

You can rotate the buttons 90 degrees and lower the steering wheel for easy storage. It has two storage modes: horizontal or vertical, with a handlebar mount.

Vertical storage saves more space. It takes up as much space as an average piece of luggage. I have to say that folding the handle took a bit of practice. It was boring the first few times, but once you get its hang, you can clean the knife in no time.


Despite its performance, the mower is surprisingly quiet. You can even listen to music while cutting out, and if you keep the doors closed, the mowing will not be heard in the house.

As with any mower within reach, some assembly is required. The included instructions were straightforward to follow, and we were able to assemble the device in less than 30 minutes.


The blade has a four-year warranty, and the battery and charger have a two-year warranty. The steel plate is strong enough, but the adjustment of the handle could be improved. The adjustment of the plastic clamps is a bit uncomfortable.


The vast majority of reviewers rated the Greenworks MO80L510 as an excellent choice as a cordless electric lawnmower. It has impressed many users with its superb cutting and grinding performance and long run times. Like all battery-powered lawnmowers, the lightweight design and quiet motor make it possible and pleasant to mow the lawn early. On the other hand, there have been complaints about the cutter’s handling characteristics that make it difficult for some users to control the mower’s speed easily. Overall, however, the mower remains the right choice for consumers looking for an alternative to high-performance lawn mowers with long battery life.
