Greenworks 41cm G40LM41K2x Review (G40LM41K2) Cordless Lawn Mower  with 2x 2Ah Battery and Charger

Greenworks G40LM41K2x Review

What is the Greenworks 40V 41cm Cordless Lawn Mower?

The Greenworks G40LM41K2x is a cordless lawn mower that has a deck size of 41cm, covers lawns up to 600m² and has 5 cutting heights between 25mm and 80mm. This Greenworks cordless lawn mower has a large 50 litre grass collection box, charges in a very respectable 30 minutes, provides up to 30 minutes of run time per 2.0Ah battery and has the ability to mulch the lawn clippings.

The Greenworks 40V Cordless Lawn Mower 41cm is one of the best selling cordless lawn mowers in the UK, but is it all what it’s cracked up to be?

This Greenworks G40LM41K2x mower has been selling extremely well here in the UK, why? Well because it is simply great value for money and competes well with the likes of Bosch and Worx to boot! Mulching the lawn cuttings is becoming more and more popular, and this mower comes supplied with a mulching plug as standard. This is something you have to pay extra for with Bosch mowers and is not available on the Worx cordless mower.

What about quality though I hear you say? Well I’m not going to pretend the materials and build quality is as good as Bosch, however this mower is perfectly adequate at getting the job done effectively and efficiently at an affordable price.

Below I’ll detail all the features and functions of the Greenworks 41cm 40V, both good and not so good. I will also outline the different battery options available and their model numbers so you know exactly what you are getting for your hard earned cash.

Main Features:

  • Covers areas up to 300m² in size per battery (600m² for 2 x 2.0Ah)
  • 2 x 40V, 2Ah Li-on battery
  • Blade length: 41cm (16″)
  • Number of Cutting Heights: 5 (25mm-80mm)
  • Grass box capacity: 50 litre
  • Charge time: impressive 30 minutes per battery
  • Free run time: 30 minutes per 2Ah battery
  • Mulching option

Power System

Greenworks G40LM41K2x Power

Like many cordless lawn mowers, the Greenworks 41cm is powered by a Lithium-ion battery (40V) and electrical motor which will charge in around 30 mins per 2.0Ah battery. Both batteries combined will reach up to 600m² in lawn size. Swapping the batteries is very quick and easy with all Greenworks mowers.

When purchasing this Greenworks 41cm cordless mower there are 3 options available that are worth noting before we go any further.

The model we are talking about in this review is the Greenworks G40LM41K2x that is supplied with 2 x 2.0Ah batteries. There is however an option to purchase with one battery or bare tool, with no batteries. Below are the model numbers showing these options an differences.

  • Greenworks G40LM41K2x = 40V 2 x 2Ah Battery
  • Greenworks G40LM41K2 = 40V 1 x 2Ah Battery
  • Greenworks  2504707 = No Battery Supplied (Tool Only)
Greenworks 41cm Review

The Greenworks G-MAX 40V 2Ah battery and charger supplied with this mower are compatible with all the Greenworks G-Max 40V tools. These interchangeable batteries will run your Greenworks G-Max 40V hedge cutter, chainsaw, trimmer, cultivator and leaf blower.

The battery level indicator can be seen whilst mowing so you know when you are getting near to swap the batteries; you would think that this is standard on all cordless mowers, but unfortunately it is not the case.

In summary, the Greenworks 41cm will provide the same mowing time (per 2.0Ah battery) as the Flymo Mighti-Mo 300 Li, however the Greenworks will charge in a half of the time as the Flymo. As with all cordless mowers, don’t expect the batteries to last their stated time if you are cutting thick, long or damp grass on the lowest setting. Having said that this cordless mower is powerful and will cut just fine if you start at a higher height setting and work your way down.

The great thing about all these cordless lawn mowers is that you can set out to work at any time of the day without it disturbing your family or your neighbours, as the mowers are very quiet. With zero emissions they look after the environment as well.


Greenworks 40v 35cm blade

Blades

The Greenworks 40V Mower has a 41cm cutting width with a single metal rotary blade that provide the following benefits:

  1. The blade allows for a wide 41cm cutting width right to the edge of the mower.
  2. Metal blades generally wear less quickly than plastic blades which results in you needing to replace the lawn mower blades less often.
  3. Metal blades are generally sharper and provide a cleaner cut to the grass blade resulting in a neater, tidier and superior finish to your lawn and garden. The metal blades on the Greenworks 40V can be sharpened when needed unlike plastic blades.

This Greenworks 41cm mower cuts very well, whether or not you are collecting the clippings or mulching. If you are not sure what the benefits of mulching the lawn are? Please take a look at the mulching section below for more details.


Height Adjustment 

Greenworks 41cm Review

In order to cut effectively on varying lengths and condition of lawn, you can adjust the height at which the Greenworks G40LM41K2x Cordless Lawn Mower cuts at.

You may have noticed there is no visible lever on this mower. Well that’s because this mower has a fantastic push button height adjustment system that can be found on the more expensive range of new Bosch mowers. You simply push the button and the mower raises up, and to lower the mower is just as easy, simply press the button and push down on the mower to the desired height. All 4 wheels are adjusted together, nice one Greenworks.

Now, this may not sound like a big deal but you would not believe how many mowers I have tested where the height adjustment is so awkward and difficult.

You will have the option to cut from anywhere between 25mm to 80mm with 5 separate cutting heights. This allows a higher cutting options when compared to the Flymo.

As mentioned above with regards to preserving the battery run-time, just make sure you don’t set it at the lowest setting when the lawn has significant growth, instead start at a higher setting and gradually work your way down. This gives the areas of small grass the opportunity to catch up with the long, resulting in a more even and lush lawn.


Cutting Diameter

The cutting diameter of this Greenworks G40LM41K2x mower at 41cm is what I would call a mid-sized deck, but is 11cm larger than the Flymo Mighti-Mo 300 Li but still small enough to manoeuvre around the tricky areas of your lawn. What’s great about this deck size is that it’s large enough to get the job done quickly but not too large to make it cumbersome and difficult to manoeuvre.

When you need a mower that’s light in weight and mows your lawn in the shortest time possible, the Greenworks cordless mower  may well be the best option for you.


Grass box capacity

The grass collection box on this mower is a very respectable 50 litres that will allow for longer periods of use without needing to empty the grass clippings as often.

The grass box on the Greenworks is very easy to remove. The grass clippings empty from the box with no obstructions.

The only slight negative with this grass collection box is the absence of a flap indicator letting you know when the collection box is full. The reason for this is that the collection bag is cloth all round.


Greenworks 40v 35cm foldedPracticalities

As with all cordless lawn mowers, the fact that there are no power cords will make lawn care much easier and enjoyable. The whole experience will be quiet, hassle free as you will not be struggling with a heavy and oversized lawn mower.

The handles on this mower fold flat as well as the grass collection bag, ensuring storage space is kept to as minimum and is easier for transportation.

The fact that this Greenworks G40LM41K2x mower comes supplied with a mulching plug also means you immediately benefit from all the advantages of being able to mulch your lawn.

Does this make it more practical compared to its closest competition? Well, yes I think it does for people with medium lawns who like the option to mulch and all at a very competitive price.

Roller (stripes)

Do you like a striped lawn? Well, sorry the Greenworks Lawn mower does NOT have a roller at the rear.


Safety Features

What I really like about the Greenworks mower is the addition of a removable safety key that disables the lawn mower to help prevent accidental starting.

 


Greenworks 40v 35cm mulching

Mulching

Greenworks include a mulching blade and plug as standard with all their cordless mowers, where other brands charge extra for this feature. The Greenworks mower seems to do this very well due it its metal blade that produces a fine and very small mulch that helps soil condition.

Pros

  • Mulching Facility
  • Battery is Interchangeable with Other Greenworks Tools
  • Large 50 Litre Grass Box
  • Great Value for Money
  • Number of Cutting Heights: 5 (25mm-80mm)
  • Impressive 30 Minutes Charge Time

Cons

  • This mower does not have a rear roller so you will not achieve a striped lawn finish.
  • You can only charge one battery at a time, so a second charger may be required.

Now, the above cons may sound trivial and are common to most cordless mowers but should be taken into consideration anyway.


Conclusion

Greenworks 41cm Review

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.

The  Greenworks 41cm is very proficient at cutting varying lengths and thickness of grass for such a lightweight cordless mower this is very impressive. Yes, there are a couple of niggles like the fact that there is no grass box level indicator and the fact there is no roller for that striped lawn appearance. But these don’t really detract from the fact that this mower is just great value for money backed by a 2 year warranty.

With this mower you’re getting features normally found in higher 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!

At this price range this mower really offers great value for money and it would be very hard to find a cordless mower that performs this well and has such a good build quality for this price.

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!

Greenworks are really getting a name for themselves here in the UK and proving to be a reliable and cost effective brand.


Should You Buy This Model?

Greenworks 41cm Review

Well there are a few factors to consider first, whether or not you purchase this model really depends on your garden and situation.

To give you some guidance on which type of customer would suit this model best, below I’ve listed the categories they would fall under:

  • People with lawns up to 600m² in size.
  • Those who require a quick battery charge time (30mins per battery).
  • People who want a battery that is interchangeable with other Greenworks garden tools.
  • Those who want to mulch and cut & collect grass with the same machine.
  • Those who require a medium size cutting deck (41cm) that can work efficiently in small, medium and large gardens.
  • People who want a large grass collection box (50L) to reduce the amount of stops.
  • People who have limited storage as this mower is compact with folding handles.

Of course this is open to interpretation so if you don’t fall under every single category then don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll still love this Greenworks mower as it has loads of great features you will make use of even if you’re not its perfect customer.


Where should I purchase this model?

Amazon have the best prices that are difficult to match and probably the most reliable delivery system on the web. Considering how valuable this piece of equipment is, no doubt you want the most for your money and the best service possible, therefore making Amazon the best place to go.
