Summary

Hyundai HYM80LI460SP Cordless Mower Review

The Hyundai HYM80LI460SP is a battery powered self-propelled cordless lawn mower that is supplied with a 2.5Ah 40v Samsung lithium-ion battery and provides up to 40 minutes of run-time. It has a 45.2cm deck size, a 65 litre grass collection box, 6 cutting heights from 25mm to 75mm, and weighs 29.8kg. The Hyundai HYM80LI460SP is supplied with a mulching and side-discharge plug, two safety keys and is covered by a 3 year Hyundai warranty.

Before we get into the review of this Hyundai HYM80LI460SP Cordless Lawnmower, I think it’s worth saying a quick word about cordless self-propelled lawn mowers in general. If you asked me 3 or 4 years ago if a cordless self-propelled lawn mower is any good and worth the investment, I would have said a resounding no! But in 2020, the battery and motor technology, and indeed, mower technology in general, has improved to such an extent that my answer now would be, most definitely.  In this Hyundai HYM80LI460SP review you will see why cordless mowers, and in particular self-propelled cordless mowers, are now a real and viable alternative to petrol mowers.

If you’re looking for a brand you can trust to deliver a precise and effective cordless mower, then look no further than Hyundai. Their HYM80LI460SP cordless lawnmower is both powerful and offers a generous cutting width for medium to larger-sized lawns.

At 18 inches – or just a little over 45cm, you are getting adequate coverage on each pass and thanks to the variable cutting heights, you are also getting the freedom to create the type of lawn that you want. But how does this mower compare to other brands and does it live up to Hyundai’s reputation for quality and performance?

Aside from that, a cordless tool means that there are no emissions, therefore, no damage to the environment, which is essential for the green-minded gardener.

Without further ado, let’s get on an take a closer look at this Hyundai HYM80LI460SP Cordless Lawnmower…

Hyundai HYM80LI460SP Main Features

Hyundai HYM80LI460SP Features
  • 45.2cm (18-inch) cutting width
  • Powerful 80v lithium-ion battery
  • Mulching and side discharge options
  • Large 65-litre grass collection bag
  • Vertical storage
  • Self-propelled drive
  • Foldable design for easy storage
  • Safety key
  • Quiet operation

Power System And Batteries

With this Hyundai HYM80LI460SP, you are getting more than just a product from a reputable manufacturer – you are also getting the guarantee of powerful batteries from none other than Samsung. A company that is synonymous with innovation and quality where technology is concerned.

The mower runs on two 40v 2.5Ah batteries and has a brushless motor, giving you an impressive amount power and run-time, which makes this something of a mean machine. Furthermore, these batteries have been designed with durability in mind and as such, can withstand more than 1000 charges – that is a lot of lawn mowing! Now 40 minutes may not sound like a long time, but when looking at the competition, it compares very favourably. This gives you plenty of time to cover a medium to larger sized lawn area.

Remember this is a self-propelled lawn mower, so any battery needs to not only to power the blade, but also the mower itself (if used), therefore 40 minutes of run-time is impressive indeed.

Just remember, if the condition of your grass is very long and damp, then this 40 minute run-time will be reduced.

Hyundai HYM80LI460SP Power System And Batteries

Just as a side note, this mower is available without the self-propelled drive and its model number is Hyundai HYM80LI460P. It has an identical size and specification apart from the self-propulsion.

Battery Charger

The batteries take 80 minutes to reach their full charge and will deliver as much as 40 minutes of cutting time per charge. Just so you know, there is also a fast charger available for this mower that chargers the battery in an excellent 30 minutes.

Another notable feature of these batteries is the fact that they can be used in the entire Hyundai 40v/80v range of cordless tools. As with all lithium-ion batteries, the cost is not cheap, so having the ability to share them between other Hyundai tools is a great feature and saves you money.

Performance

Hyundai HYM80LI460SP Cordless Mower Performance

This is a mower that has been designed to make the job easy. With its self-propelled drive, you simply need to guide the machine around your garden for optimal results every time. Not only does this mean that the job will get done far more quickly, but it also means that it won’t be as physically demanding on you, the user.

The 1200w brushless motor offers superior performance and has been designed to stand the test of time. Engines of this nature require no maintenance yet still give you high speeds, precision cutting and effortless operation.

In terms of operation, this is a super-quiet piece of equipment. While petrol lawn mowers can offer a more significant amount of power, there is no doubt that battery-operated ones deliver on user-friendliness. Low-decibel output means a more pleasant experience for you – and your neighbours.

The cut quality is what you would expect from a quality mower as is the grass collection ability. The Hyundai HYM80LI460SP collects the grass cuttings effectively when using the grass collection box and has a handy full indicator to let you know when it needs emptying.

Deck And Blade

The robust steel rotating blade gives you a clean and precise cut every time. Furthermore, it is a decent size at 18 inches, which is just a little more than 45cm, making it perfect for most domestic situations. Spare parts are not a problem with this mower should you need them. The blade can also be sharpened by any DIY’er with some basic tools.

Oh, did I mention this mower has a steel deck? This Hyundai HYM80LI460SP really is giving its petrol counterparts a run for their money!

Cutting Diameter

For more extensive lawns, the 452mm cutting diameter is ideal, but it is also perfect for smaller medium-sized lawned areas. Essentially, you are getting a diverse piece of equipment that will make light work of a variety of lawn sizes.

Handles

The most notable feature of the handles on this device is that they fold away so that when it comes to storing the mower, space needn’t be a concern. The handles fold at both the central position and the lower deck position. You will need to fold the handles at both points to utilise the handy vertical storage option.

What’s more, the ergonomically designed handle makes using the equipment extraordinarily comfortable, and the padded foam grip further adds to this.

As this is a self-propelled mower you will have the two levers along the bars for stopping the mower (OPC) and the self-propulsion lever.

Wheels

The Hyundai HYM80LI460SP sits on four sturdy wheels that make this a very stable piece of equipment. What’s more, the mower’s larger rear wheels are designed in this way to give you greater control and stability during use. As with all mulching mowers there is no rear roller on this mower.

Wheel Sizes

  • Front 178mm
  • Rear 254mm

Height Adjustment

Hyundai HYM80LI460SP Height Adjustment

The ability to adjust the cutting height on a mower is essential – especially when you are keen to cut the grass to different heights according to the time of year.

The Hyundai will not let you down, since it features an easy to adjust cutting height lever that takes seconds to switch and adjust all 4 wheels simultaneously. You are getting a versatile range of options, and the cutting height can be set to anywhere between 25mm and 75mm.

So this mower will not give you a very low bowling green cut, for that you would need around a 17mm cutting height. Having said that, it’s never a good idea to cut the lawn too low unless you are prepared to maintain and nurture it on a frequent basis. Keeping your lawn a little longer will ensure you do not stress it too much and it can obtain enough moisture, light and nutrients to remain healthy.

Mulching

Many modern mowers have omitted a mulching feature, and this can deter a lot of consumers. However, the Hyundai HYM80LI460SP comes with a mulching plug which can be easily used as and when you need it. Some manufactures require you to purchase the mulching plug separately, however Hyundai included it in the box (and the side discharge plug too).

Mulching allows the mower to spread the grass cuttings back over the lawn to improve its health and encourage future growth.

Grass Box

Hyundai HYM80LI460SP Grass Box

This mower comes with one of the most generous grass boxes on the market, compared to other products in this class. The sizable 65-litre offering will mean that you no longer need to take frequent trips to empty before continuing with the job.

It is a fabric grass collection bag with a plastic lid which is easy to attach and remove and is also vented. I do prefer this type of hybrid grass box to “all solid”, or “all cloth” boxes. You are getting a more durable top without compromising on the improved air circulation found on cloth collection bags. Better circulation equals better grass collection ability.

Cutting Features

This mower is versatile as it has 4 different mowing options.

  1. Cut and collect: This is the standard feature with the grass box attached and the clippings collected.
  2. Side discharge: The side discharge chute come supplied and attaches to the side of the mower for the clipping to be expelled.
  3. Mulch: The mulching plug is again supplied with the Hyundai HYM80LI460SP and blocks the rear chute so the clippings are cut more finely and expelled back into the lawn.
  4. Rear Discharge: Two rubber feet are supplied with the mower that hold the rear flap open slightly for rear discharge of the grass cuttings.

Practicalities

The most apparent feature of this mower that makes it super practical, apart from the features mentioned above, is the easy vertical storage, couple this with the lack of cords and you’ve got an amazing piece of kit.

Cordless mowers make cutting the grass far easier thanks to the user not being tethered to a power source, therefore, more free to move around the lawn with ease. What’s more, the lack of cables means that there is no chance of an accident involving them.

The self-propelled nature of the mower means that practically speaking, mowing is a breeze. Users who find it too strenuous to push a heavy mower around the lawn will massively benefit from this feature. Just because this is not a petrol mower, it does not mean it’s light weight. This Hyundai HYM80LI460SP weighs in at a hefty 29.8kg

The quick charging option means that you won’t be waiting around for the entire day to get the job done.
