Hyundai HYM40LI330P Cordless Mower Review

Summary

Hyundai HYM40LI330P Cordless Mower Review

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 20cm, 40cm and 60cm, 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.

When you’re looking at cordless mowers, you’ll quite often see a hefty machine that is designed with a very large cutting width and that may be true where the large version of this model is concerned, the Hyundai HYM40LI380P. But this niftier younger brother, the Hyundai HYM40LI330P may be the solution you are looking for if you want a more compact mower for a smaller lawn. Whilst this model has a much smaller cutting width at 33cm, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t packed full of features that make this a very welcome addition to your garden tool collection.

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.

For a smaller mower, you’re still getting a decent grass collection bag which is just one of the features that make this mower easy and simple to use.

Whilst the larger HYM40LI380P may boast five cutting heights, this smaller model still gives you three options which is more than enough if you’re pretty set on how long you like your lawn – in a lot of cases, less really is more. And this is a cordless mower that may be small but certainly is mighty.

Main Features

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

Power System & Batteries

Hyundai HYM40LI330P Power

We’ve already touched on the fact that this mower makes use of a powerful Samsung battery so when you hear that you’re getting the power tech of this company alongside the innovation of the mighty Hyundai, you can feel confident that this mower will run like a dream.

The 2.5Ah battery has been designed to give you as long as 30 minutes continual running time which is ideal for smaller lawns – you’ll certainly get the job done in one charge. What’s more, unlike some other models that require two batteries, this one operates with just the one, less energy wasted on charging and much more simple.

The motor, whilst relatively decent at 40V also boasts a super-quiet operation so even if you decide to get outside and mow in the wee small hours, you’re not going to be causing a raucous.

Battery Charger

Truly, one of the most notable things about the charger that you are getting with this is the decent speed at which it fills the battery with juice. In just 80 minutes, you can go from empty to fully powered, meaning you’re not having to wait around to get to work. Now you may think that 80 minutes is no time to wait for a full charge, however you can also purchase a fast charger for this mower that reduces the charge time down to an incredible 30 minutes!

What’s more, the battery and charger definitely can lay claim to being durable since it has been designed to go the distance for 1000 or more charges – think how many times you could cut the grass on that!

Blades

The Hyundai HYM40LI330P features a 330mm steel blade which is ideal for durability and for a cleaner cut. Steel blades can easily be sharpened by anyone with basic DIY skills or a new replacement blade can be purchased, if needed.

For smaller grassed areas, and even medium-sized lawns, this is the perfect blade size.

Height Adjustment

Now, whilst the Hyundai HYM40LI330P does have fewer height options than the larger version of this model, that’s not to say it isn’t versatile. You’re getting three choices here that range between 40mm and 60mm, so it makes a great option if you’re not needing to vastly alter the length of the lawn at different times of the year or for different parts of the garden.

The height can be adjusted by sliding the axle to the height slot that you want to use and then you are free to get started – so not only does this give you precision but it’s simple to adjust. Whilst I am not a big fan of this type of height adjustment (mower needs to be turned over) as I prefer a height adjustment lever mounted on the top of the deck, this method still seemed to work with no problems. Please ensure that both the battery and safety key are removed before turning the mower over to adjust the height.

Cutting Diameter

Hyundai HYM40LI330P BladeSo, as we already know, the Hyundai HYM40LI330P features a 33cm cutting width and whilst this may seem small compared to some other models, it is certainly ideal if you only have a little area of grass to manage. Why go for something bulkier and unnecessary when a sprightly little tool like this will do the job perfectly well?

Roller (stripes)

If you want to create that English country garden perfection for your lawn then you’re going to need a reliable roller and you certainly won’t be disappointed with this one since it features a nice little roller at the back of the machine.

There is something of a technique to creating the perfect striped lawn but with a little practise, it becomes second nature especially when you have a lightweight mower like this that can make easy work of giving your lawn a pleasing aesthetic. As this is a lightweight mower, remember that the stripes will not last as long as those created with heavy grass roller or petrol mower.

Mulching

Whilst this one does feature a generous grass collection bag, there is also the option to go into the mulching mode which couldn’t be easier thanks to the mulching plug on this model.

By enabling this mode, your cuttings will be returned to the grass to give it a boost in terms of fertilisation and will leave it looking healthier and greener – a common option to many garden enthusiasts but if you don’t want to use it, there is the option of the grass collection bag – what a versatile piece of equipment.

Grass box

The Hyundai HYM40LI330P has a decent-sized grass collection bag that can hold up to 30 litres. We did say that this machine was small but mighty and this is proven with the generous capacity of this bag.

The design, being all plastic is a cinch to empty, so you won’t have to compromise on your mowing time. Furthermore, since the capacity is good, you’ll likely not be having to make as many trips to the compost or bin as you would with some other mowers.

Also some mowers I have tested, the grass box is prone to bouncing off when you hit the first bump. This is not the case with this mower.

Practicalities

Hyundai HYM40LI330P PowerOne of the best things about any cordless mower is that without those long cables, the safe use of the equipment is effortless. But there are a lot of other practical features that make this mower a real delight to use.

A great example is a foldable design which allows for easier storage. The handles on the Hyundai HYM40LI330P fold at both the mid point and the lower/deck point with no tools required, which is a great feature not normally found on other mowers. Once the handles have been folded and the grass collection box removed, the mower can be stored vertically, thanks to the clever design.

Moreover, the materials used in the design mean that this is extremely lightweight at just over 11kg so you won’t be breaking your back when moving it around or lifting.

In addition, it is made from strong, robust poly materials that will certainly stand up to the outside elements meaning that the mower won’t rust or corrode – essentially, its performance will never be compromised.

However, on the rare chance you do have issues, you’re getting a 3-year warranty so you’ll never be left out of pocket or without a decent lawn mower.

But what we really love is that it comes pretty much right out of the box without a massive assembly job meaning that you can get outside and mowing within minutes – because we all want to try out a new toy as soon as it arrives, no matter what our age.

Finally, thanks to the lack of oil changes, spark plug replacements and air filter checks that you’d find on a petrol mower, you’re getting a machine that requires little to no maintenance, saving you time and money. Not to mention, it is a much more eco-friendly choice.

Safety Features

Operating the Hyundai HYM40LI330P couldn’t be any safer since it requires the insertion of a safety key before the machine will fire up. Working with power or electric tools really does carry a lot of potential safety risks so I think this is a really clever little addition that puts safety as a priority.

Of course, as I have already mentioned, the lack of power cables also adds to how safe this is to use, eliminating trips and the potential of mowing over the cord.

Should You Buy This Model?

Hyundai HYM40LI330P ConclusionAs far as getting good value for money is concerned, you won’t go far wrong with this cordless mower. Coming in at a sniff under £200, you’d be hard pushed to find anything quite this well priced for the features you are getting. So, if you’re in the market for being thrifty, this has got you covered.

Anyone with a small or medium lawn will find this highly beneficial, provided that you don’t want massive options where cutting height is concerned. The 33cm cutting width is generous enough to easily tackle the average-sized lawn.

If you’re looking for a mower that’s going to give you diversity then this is certainly worth considering thanks to the fast charging option, grass collection bag, mulching mode and the addition of a roller for making stripes – you’re getting the best of everything, all in one nifty little lawn mower.

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.
