Guide To Buying The Best Cordless Mulching Lawn Mower

Best Cordless Mulching Lawn MowerA lot of people mow their lawns and collect the grass clippings in a collection bag before disposing of them in the garden waste. This is great because this waste will likely be recycled by your council. However, there is a more environmentally friendly way, using a good cordless mulching lawn mower, that will benefit your own garden and produce a healthier, thicker and disease resistant lawn.

Mulching is a simple and effective way to deliver nutrients back into the ground, providing all the benefits that a well and organically fertilised lawn will exhibit. However, you cannot mulch with just any lawn mower, you must have a mower that has been designed for this purpose.

Lawn mowers that have the ability to mulch can be purchased in varying power types from petrol, electric, cordless and, of course, robotic. In this article we will look specifically at cordless models as they offer not only the flexibility of mulching, but also easier manoeuvrability as they are not tethered by the cord and are lower maintenance compared to petrol mowers.

If like myself, you prefer a cordless mower, the good news is that there are plenty of these available with mulching functionality included. In this article, we are going to be looking at some of the best cordless mulching models currently available on the UK market and giving you some great advice about mulching to get you started.

In a Hurry?

What’s So Good About Mulching Anyway?

You will often hear me talking about mulching and the benefits of doing it, and I am not alone in my opinions here. Many garden enthusiasts are eager to mulch, but really, is it such a big deal?

Simply put, mulching is a way of recycling your grass clippings by delivering them back to the ground. Once here, they will start to decompose and release essential nutrients that will help your grass stay thick and healthy. Who doesn’t want a lush, green lawn?

But the benefits of mulching do not stop here. You will notice that if the weather gets warmer (and that’s a big if in the UK) your lawn will be far less likely to dry out. Of course, I would still recommend watering your lawn as well during long dry periods and drought. Furthermore, the amount of moss that builds up on your lawn will be significantly reduced and you won’t notice nearly as many weeds.

If all of that wasn’t enough, there is the fact that this is a much more environmentally friendly option since you won’t be using chemical fertilisers and it will save you time when mowing.

The Hyundai HYM40LI330P is a battery powered cordless lawn mower that is supplied with a 2.5Ah 40v Samsung lithium-ion battery that provides up to 30 minutes of runtime. It has a 33cm deck size, a 30 litre grass collection box, 3 cutting heights including 20mm, 40mm and 60mm, and is lightweight at just 11.4Kg. The Hyundai HYM40LI330P is supplied with a mulching plug and is covered by a 3 year Hyundai warranty.

It has got a super-powerful Samsung lithium-ion battery which will provide you with the juice you need to get the job done in one fell swoop. But you’re also benefiting from a 40V motor that is perfect for maintaining your lawn.

Main Features

  • 30-litre grass bag
  • 40V motor
  • Powerful 2.5Ah lithium-ion battery
  • Lightweight design
  • 3 cutting heights
  • 33cm cutting width

This Mower Is Suitable For

  • People with gardens up to 300m² in size.
  • Those that require the option to mulch the cuttings.
  • People who like a nice striped lawn.
  • Those who want the option of fast battery charge time (30 minutes) – Optional extra.
  • People who do not want the hassle of cords or petrol.
  • Those that only require 3 cutting heights.

Conclusion

The Hyundai HYM40LI330P is a great cordless lawn mower that is easy to use and has a lot to offer. It’s powered by an impressive 2.5Ah battery that gives you enough power on an 80-minute (30 mins with fast charger) charge to cut the entire lawn.

I would definitely back the claim that this is a really good option for a first time cordless mower since it is affordable and gives you a really good insight into the features that a good cordless mower should have. When I compare it to the slightly larger Hyundai HYM40LI380P, it isn’t hard to see why this is the preferred option for people who don’t need something quite as heavy-duty. Would I recommend this? Absolutely.

Pros
  • Perfect for small to medium lawns
  • Fast charging (30 minutes with additional fast charger)
  • Mulching plug
  • Rear roller for striped lawns
  • Good sized grass collection bag
  • Compact and easy to store
  • Won’t rust
  • No maintenance required and eco-friendly
  • Cost-effective
  • Lightweight
Cons
  • Not suitable for larger gardens
  • No central lever for height adjustment

The Greenworks 40V is a cordless lawn mower that has a deck size of 35cm, covers lawns up to 300m² and has 5 cutting heights between 20mm and 80mm. This Greenworks cordless lawn mower has a large 40 litre grass collection box, charges in a very respectable 30 minutes, provides up to 30 minutes of run time and has the ability to mulch the lawn clippings without having to purchase any additional accessories.

The Greenworks 40V Cordless Lawn Mower 35cm (14″) is one of the best selling cordless lawn mowers in the UK.

The mower is indeed packed with features you would expect to see in higher end cordless mowers and certainly has the ability to cut a lawn around 300 meters square (roughly slightly larger than the size of a tennis court).

Main Features

  • Covers areas up to 300m² in size per battery
  • 1 x 40V, 2Ah Li-on battery (optional second 40V, 2Ah battery)
  • Blade length: 35 cm
  • Number of Cutting Height: 5 (20mm-80mm)
  • Grass box capacity: 40 litre
  • Charge time: impressive 30 minutes
  • Free run time: 30 minutes per 2Ah battery
  • Mulching option

This Mower Is Suitable For

  • People with lawns up to 300m² in size.
  • Those who require a quick battery charge time (30mins).
  • People who want a battery that is interchangeable with other Greenworks garden tools.
  • Those who want the option to mulch and cut grass with the same mower.
  • Those who require a medium size cutting deck (35cm) that can work efficiently in small, medium and large gardens.
  • People who want a large grass collection box (40L) to reduce the amount of stops.
  • People who have limited storage as this mower is compact with folding handles.

Conclusion

Overall this is a very good mower, I actually rate it very slightly higher than the Flymo Mighti-Mo 300 Li due to its portability, good build quality, slightly larger deck size, faster charge time and above all great value for money.

The extra features like the removable safety key is a nice touch but one that you will most probably never use. Besides you want features that will help you achieve a lovely looking lawn with least amount of work and effort.

The  Greenworks 40V is very proficient at cutting varying lengths and thickness of grass for such a lightweight cordless mower this is very impressive. It’s worth mentioning that by cutting more regularly and avoiding very long or wet grass this should avoid putting too much strain on the battery. Remember to always keep the battery charged and stored in a dry place over winter.

With this mower you’re getting features normally found in high priced cordless mowers, so this is a very reasonable price for such a well performing, durable and reliable lawn mover.

But do I think it’s better than its closest competitors? Yes I do!

Pros
  • Mulching Facility
  • Battery is Interchangeable with Other Greenworks Tools
  • 40 Litre Grass Box
  • Number of Cutting Height: 5 (20mm-80mm)
  • Impressive 30 minutes Charge Time
Cons
  • No Rear Roller for a Striped Lawn Appearance

The Hyundai HYM40LI380P is supplied with a mulching plug and is covered by a 3 year Hyundai warranty.

Hyundai are well known for their innovative approach to anything motorised and when I look at the features of their HYM40LI380P cordless lawn mower it isn’t hard to see why. What you’re getting is essentially a hefty cutting width, especially when you compare it to its younger brother, the Hyundai HYM40LI330, which has a cutting width that is 5cm smaller at 33cm.

In terms of power, you won’t get anything else that is much more reliable since the battery is not only long-lasting but also super quiet, but we will look at this in a little more depth later on.

Main Features

  • Ideal for small to medium-sized lawns
  • 38cm cutting width
  • No petrol or cables to worry about
  • Powerful 2.5Ah li-ion battery
  • 40-litre grass bag

This mower is ideal for those that

  • People with gardens up to 500m² in size.
  • Those that require the option to mulch the cuttings.
  • People who like a nice stripey lawn.
  • Those who want the option of fast battery charge time (30 minutes) – Optional extra.
  • People who do not want the hassle of cords or petrol.
  • Those that require a larger grass collection box for less stops.

Conclusion

As far as your cordless lawn mowers go, this Hyundai HYM40LI380P is a nice little option for the dedicated gardener or anyone who wants a quick and easy way to manage their lawn.

There are a decent number of functions and features that make this piece of equipment a delight to use, and I’d certainly say that this could be a go-to mower for a lot of people. With the ability to mulch, stripe and empty the mower with ease, you’re sure to find this a pleasure to work with.

The Mountfield S42-PD LI is a self-propelled cordless battery powered lawn mower, is driven by a powerful 60 volt 4 Ah battery and brushless motor and designed for lawns up to 800m². The steel deck is 41cm wide and the mower has 4 mowing modes including bag, mulch, rear-discharge or side-discharge your cut-grass.

The Mountfield S42-PD LI has a huge 60 litre grass collection bag that incorporates a grass-bag full indicator, has 6 height positions ranging from 22mm to 65mm, has foldable handles and comes with a two year warranty.

Mountfield’s S42-PD is a 1300-watt self-propelled mower, with a 60-volt 4Ah lithium-ion battery. This large capacity battery gives the machine enough power to mulch through your lawn without interruption. The self-propulsion also reduces the fatigue on the operator.

Main Features

  • For Lawns of up to 800m²
  • Blade Length: 41cm (16-inch)
  • Weight: 27 Kg
  • Number of Cutting Heights: 6 (from 22mm to 65mm)
  • Grass Box Capacity: 60 L
  • Motor: 2900 RPM 1300-Watt Brushless-Motor
  • Battery: 4Ah 60-Volt Lithium-Ion 216Wh
  • Deck Noise: 90 Decibels (77 dB at the operator level)
  • Handle: Folding and Ergonomic

This Mower Is Suitable For

  • People with gardens up to 800 m² in size.
  • Those looking for a trusted UK brand with excellent service and support.
  • Those looking for a premium powerful battery mower with great features.
  • People looking for a genuine alternative to a petrol powered mower.
  • Those that would like the option to mulch the grass cuttings.
  • People looking for a mower that has the option to side discharge.
  • Those that like the option of rear discharge.
  • Storage is limited as handles and grass box fold flat.
  • People looking for a longer warranty period (2 years domestic on mower)

Conclusion

Mountfield also makes the S46-PD, which has the same specifications and a similar price. Except the S46-PD has a larger blade, 46 centimetres in diameter.

The S42-PD has all the best parts of a petrol mower but without the hassle, fumes and maintenance requirements that come with petrol mowers.

Petrol mowers have strong metal decks and wheels, and this cordless mower has both of those things. A petrol mower is often self-propelled with a long run-time, as does the S42-PD. And a mower that gives the options of mulching, collection, and side and rear-discharge is more than enough choices.

You will not be disappointed with this mower as it is a genuine alternative to a petrol mower. After all this is a Mountfield, a trusted pedigree lawn mower brand that prides itself in quality, innovation, and fantastic after-sales support.

Pros
  • Strong steel deck with skid plate.
  • Powerful 60-volt 4 Ah lithium-ion battery.
  • Long battery run-time.
  • The mower comes with a mulching plug.
  • Self-propelled with independent throttle control.
  • There is a side-chute.
  • Single deck height lever.
  • Collapsible grass box.
  • Low-noise emission.
  • Trusted, high quality brand.
  • 2-year warranty.
Cons
  • No rear roller for striped lawn (Roller model available S42R-PD)
  • Longer charging time (Will mow up to 800m² when fully charged).

The EGO LM1701E Cordless Lawn Mower is powered by a 56 volt 2.5 Ah battery, brushless motor and is ideal for medium to large lawns up to 400m². The mower has a large 42cm cutting width and is supplied with a very respectable 55 litre grass collection bag.

EGO’s LM1701E-SP Cordless lawnmower comes with a 56-volt lithium-ion battery and plenty of other great innovations. EGO’s advanced and market leading battery technology means that the range of EGO cordless mowers have the power to be genuine alternatives to petrol mowers. This mower has a different handlebar design to most other lawn mowers, and the deck is reminiscent of the shape a petrol mower would have.

In this article we will take a look at all these features and functions of this EGO mower and by the end of this review I hope you will have enough information to decided if this EGO mower is worth the investment.

Main Features

  • For Lawns of up to 400m²
  • Blade Length: 42cm (16.5-inch)
  • Self Propelled: LM1701E-SP model
  • Weight: 26 Kg
  • Number of Cutting Heights: 7 (from 25mm to 80mm)
  • Grass Box Capacity: 55 L
  • Motor: 3000 rpm Brushless-Motor
  • Battery: 2.5Ah 56-Volt Lithium-Ion 140Wh
  • Deck Noise: 91.3 Decibels (77.8 dB at the operator level)
  • Handle: Telescopic with Foam Grip and fold flat

This Mower Is Suitable For

  • People with gardens up to 400 metres squared in size.
  • People looking for a self propelled mower (LM1701E-SP model).
  • Those looking for a premium powerful battery mower with great features.
  • People looking for a genuine alternative to a petrol powered mower.
  • Those looking to adjust the mower’s handles to reduce fatigue.
  • Those that would like the option to mulch the grass cuttings (optional extra).
  • Those that like the option of rear discharge.
  • Storage is limited as handles and grass box fold flat, and the mower can be stored vertically.
  • People looking for a longer warranty period (5 years domestic on mower  – 3 years on battery).

Conclusion

The EGO LM1701E-SP is one of the best battery power mowers currently on offer, and if you are looking for a neat and tidy package, then this may be it. EGO also makes a the same model with no self propulsion, that is cheaper, however I would recommend paying the extra and going for the self propelled version – LM1701E-SP.

In summary, if you have the budget for this mower, and possibly other tools from EGO, you will definitely not be disappointed. I can honestly say, that this is one of the best (if not the best), cordless mower on the market right now.

 

Pros
  • Telescopic handle doubles as a wheelie trolley for the mower.
  • Vertical space saving storage.
  • Self Propelled (LM1701E-SP model).
  • Brushless motor.
  • Headlights on the deck.
  • 56 Volt powerful market leading lithium-ion battery.
  • It comes with a standard charger that is still fast when compared to other brands.
  • Single deck height control lever.
  • Safe-start key.
  • High quality, sharp, steel blade that cuts the grass on the first rotation (Mulching Plug and Roller can be purchased as optional extras).
  • Foam on the handlebar to absorb vibrations.
  • Wide cutting blade.
  • 5-year warranty on the mower (3-year on batteries), if registered within 30 days of purchase.
Cons
  • Mulching plug and Rear roller are optional extras and are not included out of the box.
  • This mower is 26kg, and therefore would recommend the self-propelled model unless you have a level lawn.

In the winter, you do not have to bleed a fuel tank or treat the engine. And in the summer, you do not need to deal with tangled power cords and the fumes of warm petrol.

Overall this is a very good mower, with a good sized deck and features that will help make cutting your lawn a breeze. The easy height adjustment, the mulching ability, being able to exchange batteries in other Greenworks tools and above all the excellent value for money, makes this mower a great investment.

Don’t forget recharging the battery only takes 30 minutes each and you get two with this mower. You get the job done quickly and in one go (under 600m²) giving you more time to sit back and enjoy your beautiful lawn!

The Bosch AdvancedRotak 36-660 is a cordless lawn mower that charges its batteries in around 65 minutes and produces 50 minutes of run time. It has a large 50 litre grass box, a 40cm cutting width and 7 cutting heights that range from 25mm to 80mm and a rear roller for striped lawns. The Bosch AdvancedRotak 36-660 Cordless Lawnmower is best suited to lawns up to 650m² in size.

This AdvancedRotak 36-660 is the bigger brother of the Bosch UniversalRotak 36-560 and these two new mowers from Bosch are almost identical.

Conclusion

Bosch have really done themselves proud with this mower. It has some great features that actually help to make mowing your lawn that bit easier and more enjoyable, not just gimmicks that add to the price. The ProSilence is my favourite feature as it allows you to mow earlier in the morning without annoying your neighbours; giving you more time in the day for you to enjoy your lawn and sip a glass of orange juice (or something a little stronger)!

The Bosch AdvancedRotak 36-660 is a large cordless mower, but the fact that it all folds down so well means it takes up the same amount of space as smaller mowers. Yes, it’s not the cheapest mower on the market, but it is a Bosch and it is packed with features that justify paying that bit more.

All in all, you will not be disappointed with this Bosch AdvancedRotak 36-660. It is an investment that will just keep giving year after year, and put a smile on your face whilst mowing.

Pros
  • ProSilence Sound Reduction System.
  • Powerful motor.

  • ErgoSlide handles
  • Fold flat handles

  • People who want a large grass collection box (40L) to reduce the amount of stops.
  • People who have limited storage as this mower is compact with folding handles.

Conclusion

Overall this is a very good mower, I actually rate it very slightly higher than the Flymo Mighti-Mo 300 Li due to its portability, good build quality, slightly larger deck size, faster charge time and above all great value for money.

The extra features like the removable safety key is a nice touch but one that you will most probably never use. Besides you want features that will help you achieve a lovely looking lawn with least amount of work and effort.

The  Greenworks 40V is very proficient at cutting varying lengths and thickness of grass for such a lightweight cordless mower this is very impressive. It’s worth mentioning that by cutting more regularly and avoiding very long or wet grass this should avoid putting too much strain on the battery. Remember to always keep the battery charged and stored in a dry place over winter.

With this mower you’re getting features normally found in high priced cordless mowers, so this is a very reasonable price for such a well performing, durable and reliable lawn mover.

But do I think it’s better than its closest competitors? Yes I do!

What is the Bosch Rotak 430 LI Ergoflex? The Bosch Rotak 430 LI Ergoflex is a cordless lawn mower that charges in 120 minutes and produces 35 to 40 minutes run time. It has a 50 litre grass box, a 43 cm cutting width and has 10 cutting heights that range from 20mm to 70mm. This lawn mower has an integrated rear roller for a stripey lawn and weights just 13.9kg.

The Bosch Rotak 430 LI Ergo-Flex is indeed packed with features found in more higher end cordless mowers and certainly has the ability to cut a lawn up to 600 meters square (roughly slightly larger than the size of two tennis courts) , but it needs to be compared to its nearest rival, the Greenworks 49cm cordless lawnmower, to judge how good this mower really is.

This Bosch Rotak mower is built in the UK. Why dose this matter? Well, customer service, warranty, quality and the availability of spare parts are second to none.

Main Features

  • Covers areas reaching 600m² in size
  • 2 x 36 V 2 Ah batteries (430LI)
  • Blade length: 43 cm
  • Weight: 13.9 kg
  • Roller for stripey lawn
  • Number of Cutting Height: 10 (20mm – 70mm)

  • People who require a large collection box (40L) for less stops.
  • People who require the ability to mulch the grass cuttings (optional extra).
  • Those who like a stripey lawn.

Conclusion

The Bosch Rotak 430 LI is very proficient at cutting varying lengths and thickness of grass. For such a small and compact cordless mower. It’s worth mentioning that by cutting more regularly and avoiding very long or wet grass this should avoid putting too much strain on the battery. Remember to always keep the battery charged and in a dry place over winter.

This is not the cheapest mower on the market when you compare the size and battery life to cheaper alternatives, however you are getting a Bosch product and although it may feel a little flimsy, the build quality is what you would expect from Bosch. Bosch need to keep the weight of the mower down so they are deliberately using thinner plastics etc. Also, the functionality that comes with this mower is fantastic.

Pros
  • Very Good Build Quality
  • Mulching Option
  • Grass Box Capacity: 40 L
  • 10 Cutting Heights
  • 80% Charge in Only 70 Minutes
Cons

What is the Bosch Rotak 370 LI Ergoflex? The Bosch Rotak 370 LI Ergoflex is a cordless lawn mower that charges in 140 minutes and produces 35 to 40 minutes run time. It has a 40 litre grass box, a 37 cm cutting width and has 6 cutting heights that range from 20mm to 70mm. This lawn mower has an integrated rear roller for a stripey lawn and weights just 13.2kg.

The Bosch Rotak 37 LI Ergo-Flex is indeed packed with features found in more higher end cordless mowers and certainly has the ability to cut a lawn up to 500 metres square (roughly the size of 2 tennis courts), but it needs to be compared to its nearest rival, the WORX WG779E.2, to judge how good this mower really is.

This Bosch mower is built in the UK. Why does this matter? Well, customer service, warranty, quality and the availability of spare parts are second to none.

Below I’ll be detailing all the features and functions of the Bosch Rotak 37 LI Ergo-Flex, both good and not so good and then comparing to the WORX WG779E.2 so you understand exactly what you’re getting for your money.

Main Features

  • Covers areas reaching 500m² in size
  • 370 Li = 2 x 36 V 2 Ah batteries – (37 Li = 1 x 36 V 4.0 Ah battery)
  • Blade length: 37 cm
  • Roller for stripey lawn
  • Weight: 13.2 kg
  • Number of Cutting Height: 6 (20mm – 70mm)
  • Grass box capacity: 40 L
  • Charge time: 140 minutes (80% charge in only 70 minutes)
  • Free run time: 35-40 minutes

This Mower Is Suitable For

  • People with lawns up to 500m² in size.
  • People who like a stripey lawn.
  • Those who like the option to charge the battery quickly (80% in 70 minutes).
  • People who require the ability to mulch the grass cuttings (optional extra).
  • Those who require a wide range of cutting heights. 6 heights from 20mm to 70mm.

Conclusion

At this price range this really gives great value for money and you would be very hard pressed to find a cordless mower that performs this well, has as much functionality and has such a good build quality for this price.

But having said that the WORX WG779E.2 is cheaper and the quality of the cut is as good as Bosch. No, the build quality is not up to Bosch’s standards and no, the grass box is not as large but you can insert both batteries into the Worx and both can be charged at the same time.

It really is too close call between these two mowers. Both would be equally as good purchase as the other.

To get the best out of both these mowers you will need to cut your lawn more regularly and not let the grass grow too high or dense as it may struggle to cut it, this is however common with all cordless mowers at this price point and specification.

Overall, I think the Bosch is a fantastic mower and I encourage everyone with a garden under 500 m² to purchase one. In fact, I think it’s the best mower at this level you can purchase right now!

 

Pros
  • Very Good Build Quality
  • Mulching Option
  • Grass Box Capacity: 40 L
  • 6 Cutting Heights
  • 80% Charge in Only 70 Minutes
Cons
  • Assembly a Little Tricky
  • A Bit Pricey

Yes this mower is going to cost more than some of its competitors, but you are getting what you pay for.

The Mountfield S42-PD LI is a self-propelled cordless battery powered lawn mower, is driven by a powerful 60 volt 4 Ah battery and brushless motor and designed for lawns up to 800m².

The Mountfield S42-PD LI has a huge 60 litre grass collection bag that incorporates a grass-bag full indicator, has 6 height positions ranging from 22mm to 65mm, has foldable handles and comes with a two year warranty.

Mountfield’s S42-PD is a 1300-watt self-propelled mower, with a 60-volt 4Ah lithium-ion battery. This large capacity battery gives the machine enough power to mulch through your lawn without interruption. The self-propulsion also reduces the fatigue on the operator.

Main Features

  • For Lawns of up to 800m²
  • Blade Length: 41cm (16-inch)
  • Weight: 27 Kg
  • Number of Cutting Heights: 6 (from 22mm to 65mm)

Conclusion

Mountfield also makes the S46-PD, which has the same specifications and a similar price. Except the S46-PD has a larger blade, 46 centimetres in diameter.

The S42-PD has all the best parts of a petrol mower but without the hassle, fumes and maintenance requirements that come with petrol mowers.

Petrol mowers have strong metal decks and wheels, and this cordless mower has both of those things. A petrol mower is often self-propelled with a long run-time, as does the S42-PD. And a mower that gives the options of mulching, collection, and side and rear-discharge is more than enough choices.

You will not be disappointed with this mower as it is a genuine alternative to a petrol mower. After all this is a Mountfield, a trusted pedigree lawn mower brand that prides itself in quality, innovation, and fantastic after-sales support.

Pros
  • Strong steel deck with skid plate.
  • Powerful 60-volt 4 Ah lithium-ion battery.
  • Long battery run-time.
  • The mower comes with a mulching plug.
  • Self-propelled with independent throttle control.
  • There is a side-chute.
  • Single deck height lever.
  • Collapsible grass box.
  • Low-noise emission.
  • Trusted, high quality brand.
  • 2-year warranty.
Cons
  • No rear roller for striped lawn (Roller model available S42R-PD)
  • Longer charging time (Will mow up to 800m² when fully charged).

The EGO LM1903E-SP Cordless Lawn Mower is self-propelled, powered by a 56 volt 5 Ah battery, has a brushless motor and is ideal for medium lawns up to 800m². The mower has a large 47cm cutting width and is supplied with a very respectable 55 litre heavy duty grass collection bag.

EGO’s LM1903E-SP Cordless lawnmower has a large capacity 56-volt Arc Lithium battery powering its brushless motor. The mower comes with a multitude of creative design features, telescopic handles and headlights.

Conclusion

The two most important features on this mower are the 5Ah battery and the rapid charger. Both these items bring the EGO LM1903E-SP in direct competition with a petrol mower of a similar cutting size. And these batteries can recharge in the same amount of time that most of us would take driving to a petrol station to fill up a jerrycan.

If you are looking for a genuine alternative to a petrol lawn mower then EGO have produced the technology to make this a reality. In the US where people are reluctant to use anything else but petrol (gas) mowers, EGO are making a real impression with more and more die-hard gas users converting to this EGO LM1903E-SP mower and other cordless battery powered EGO mowers.

  • 5Ah Arc Lithium battery.
  • Rapid charger.

  • Hybrid grass box.
  • Space for an optional roller.
  • 5-year warranty (3-year on batteries).
Cons
  • The mulching plug is an optional extra.
  • The roller is an optional extra.
  • The wheels are a little narrow.

The EGO LM1701E Cordless Lawn Mower is powered by a 56 volt 2.5 Ah battery, brushless motor and is ideal for medium to large lawns up to 400m². The mower has a large 42cm cutting width and is supplied with a very respectable 55 litre grass collection bag.

EGO’s LM1701E-SP Cordless lawnmower comes with a 56-volt lithium-ion battery and plenty of other great innovations. EGO’s advanced and market leading battery technology means that the range of EGO cordless mowers have the power to be genuine alternatives to petrol mowers. This mower has a different handlebar design to most other lawn mowers, and the deck is reminiscent of the shape a petrol mower would have.

In this article we will take a look at all these features and functions of this EGO mower and by the end of this review I hope you will have enough information to decided if this EGO mower is worth the investment.

Main Features

  • For Lawns of up to 400m²
  • Blade Length: 42cm (16.5-inch)
  • Self Propelled: LM1701E-SP model
  • Weight: 26 Kg
  • Number of Cutting Heights: 7 (from 25mm to 80mm)
  • Grass Box Capacity: 55 L
  • Motor: 3000 rpm Brushless-Motor
  • Battery: 2.5Ah 56-Volt Lithium-Ion 140Wh
  • Deck Noise: 91.3 Decibels (77.8 dB at the operator level)
  • Handle: Telescopic with Foam Grip and fold flat

This Mower Is Suitable For

  • People with gardens up to 400 metres squared in size.
  • People looking for a self propelled mower (LM1701E-SP model).
  • Those looking for a premium powerful battery mower with great features.
  • People looking for a genuine alternative to a petrol powered mower.
  • Those looking to adjust the mower’s handles to reduce fatigue.
  • Those that would like the option to mulch the grass cuttings (optional extra).
  • Those that like the option of rear discharge.
  • Storage is limited as handles and grass box fold flat, and the mower can be stored vertically.
  • People looking for a longer warranty period (5 years domestic on mower  – 3 years on battery).

Conclusion

The EGO LM1701E-SP is one of the best battery power mowers currently on offer, and if you are looking for a neat and tidy package, then this may be it. EGO also makes a the same model with no self propulsion, that is cheaper, however I would recommend paying the extra and going for the self propelled version – LM1701E-SP.

In summary, if you have the budget for this mower, and possibly other tools from EGO, you will definitely not be disappointed. I can honestly say, that this is one of the best (if not the best), cordless mower on the market right now.

 

Pros
  • Telescopic handle doubles as a wheelie trolley for the mower.
  • Vertical space saving storage.
  • Self Propelled (LM1701E-SP model).
  • Brushless motor.
  • Headlights on the deck.
  • 56 Volt powerful market leading lithium-ion battery.
  • It comes with a standard charger that is still fast when compared to other brands.
  • Single deck height control lever.
  • Safe-start key.
  • High quality, sharp, steel blade that cuts the grass on the first rotation (Mulching Plug and Roller can be purchased as optional extras).
  • Foam on the handlebar to absorb vibrations.
  • Wide cutting blade.
  • 5-year warranty on the mower (3-year on batteries), if registered within 30 days of purchase.
Cons
  • Mulching plug and Rear roller are optional extras and are not included out of the box.
  • This mower is 26kg, and therefore would recommend the self-propelled model unless you have a level lawn.
