Electric lawn mowers are gaining popularity. While corded electric mowers are limited to range due to the length of cable cordless mowers are only limited by the charge battery can hold. Both are almost noiseless and produce less than 75 decibels. Your neighbors , specifically on Saturday or Sunday won’t complain.
If you want to go with a cordless electric lawn mower you should consider one of these two options:
A push style cordless electric mower requires you to manually push the mower either forward or reverse but yeah its less effort than a push reel mower.
A self-propelled cordless electric mower has powered rear wheels to drive the mower in a forward or reverse direction. All you have to do is control the speed and the direction of the mower.
Well this guide for all of those who definitely are environment conscious but also don’t like to work with manual push reel mowers and want the lawn mowed easily. Of course this doesn’t mean that push reel mowers don’t mow easily but electric lawn mowers do it better :).
Here are our recommendations for the best electric lawn mowers

Mower is light weight and easy to maneuver
Black & Decker is a well known company for its mowers. We have also done a detailed review of Black & Decker LM175 18-Inch 6-1/2 amp Electric Mower which you can read here.
Again its a corded mower which means you will have to take some care about cord getting in the way but then that’s it. It can reach easily up to the point where 100-foot extension cord can reach. Also powered with a 6.5 amp motor, it is suitable for yards with area under 10,000 square feet. It also comes with a one-lever height adjustment that adjusts all four wheels at once from 1 to 3-1/2 inches. One push on and off lever is a great safety feature.Weighing at 35 pounds it is quite lightweight for its category.The 18 inch deck that discharges or side-bags(with an optional bag).
This mower has managed to get a rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars from 448 customer reviews, which is a huge plus. Most of the customers said
This mower is very easy to use, very light weight and maneuvers with ease.
This is a battery powered cordless electric lawn mower. It makes a chore out of mowing, is what they say. Again the Worx WG782 14-inch 24-volt cordless lawn mower is good for smaller lawns. The 24 volt battery is powerful enough to mow an area of around 10,000 square feet which would approximately be 40 min of mowing time. I would say Neat !!
The intellicut part adds torque when you are cutting through grass, which is basically a dial which has been provided. To mow through the hard stuff simply turn the dial to Power and switch the dial to Quiet when mowing in normal conditions. Despite being compact in size and weighing at 30 pounds, the mower comes with three-in-one grass handling features that mulching, discharging grass to the side and bagging grass. Don’t be fooled by the small size.
It has managed to get an average of 4.1 out of 5 stars by 249 reviews. Most of the reviews say
It’s easy to use and it’s very light weight.
Black & Decker SPCM1936 19-Inch 36-Volt Cordless Electric Self-Propelled Lawn Mower With Removable Battery
Welcome to another heavyweight champion by Black & Decker. Weighing at 75 pounds this mower is heavy but don’t let the weight fool you. The amazingly powerful 36-Volt battery enables you to cut upto 1/3rd of an acre of a home site in a single charge. This is a self propelled type of mower which means you can adjust it to your own walking pace. Ain’t it wonderful :). You can literally have a beer in one hand and mow with Black & Decker SPCM1936 lawn mower using the other hand.
It comes with a lightweight polymer cutting deck that never rusts and is easy to clean. You can also switch from mulching to bagging to rear discharge with the push of a button. It has a one-touch height adjustment allowing you to quickly alter the cutting height of all four wheels at once with the pull of a single lever. One more thing despite being heavier, this mower is so slick that it can folded for upright or compact storage, occupying less space.
Despite a little high price tag, this mower has 481 customer reviews and has an overall rating of 4.1 out of 5 which itself speaks volume about the product. Most of the people said :
I am still very happy with my purchase and still recommend this lawn mower to anyone looking for a mower for small to average lots
Also known as Snow Joe Corded Electric Lawn Mower, this is a smaller lawn mower which is nearly perfect for smaller lawns. Weighing at 28 pounds, it is quite light. Despite being small, the 12 amp motor packs the power of a gas mower. It is quite easy to assemble and it has a three-position height adjustment up to 2-2/5 inches. It comes with a hard-top grass catcher which can be easily taken out once you are done and want to dispose off the clippings. This mower is so light that it is an ideal fit for the elderly people also.
If you are planning on buying this from amazon just keep in mind that Amazon provides a 16 gauge extension cord(to the best of my knowledge) in the bundle, but for a 12 amp motor a 14 gauge cord is required for length up to 100 ft. Using a 16 gauge cord will burn out your motor quickly hence make sure to get a 14 gauge cord.
Mow Joe MJ401E has received an average rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars from 299 reviews which is superb. Its a complete value for money product with a low price tag. Most of the people said :
Gets in all the little spaces and is light weight and is very easy for me to use.
Remember Electric lawn mowers require a bit of maintenance over the push reel lawn mowers. Also be sure to check your lawn size.
