On average, corded electric lawn mowers are less expensive than petrol or cordless lawn mowers and offer great value for money. The operating cost is also generally less expensive as you will spend less on electricity than you would on petrol.

As you will see in the next paragraph, the maintenance costs are lower. All in all, it is an inexpensive way to keep your lawn perfectly manicured.

  • Low maintenance

The nature of an electric motor is such that it requires much lower maintenance than a petrol motor. Petrol engines need to be serviced regularly and are more prone to breakdown than an electric motor.

Some come with a very impressive guarantee and many brands have a great reputation for reliability and aftersales service. Corded electric lawn mowers are extremely low maintenance which saves you time, hassle and money.

  • Lightweight

Corded electric lawn mowers are much lighter than the average petrol engine. This makes them much easier to push and operate. Some are so light that they are ideal for the elderly or children that want to pitch in with the lawn maintenance.

This also makes a corded electric lawn mower easier to transport or store. They are more compact than petrol lawn mowers.

  • Environmentally friendly

This is an important aspect to consider and although electricity is not perfectly eco-friendly, it is better for the environment than a petrol lawn mower. Petrol lawn mowers give off emissions that are not good for the environment.

  • Low noise

Corded electric lawn mowers operate much more silently than their petrol equivalents. This is especially important if you live in a neighborhood where houses are fairly close together. You will not irritate neighbors with a loud noisy petrol lawn mower.

Disadvantages

There are a few disadvantages to electric lawn mowers and it is important to be aware of them and understand them before making your decision.

  • Cutting distance

The main disadvantage of a corded electrical lawn mower is that you are limited to the distance from the power source that you can operate the machine. Most come with a 10 to 15-meter power cord and you can always add an extension cord or two if necessary. However, you are limited to a maximum distance of around 30 to 35 meters. Further than this and you should not use your corded electric lawn mower. They are therefore only suitable for small to medium lawns and will not work well on a large patch of grass.

  • Cable hassle

With a corded electric lawn mower, you will always have to manage the cable correctly and be aware of where it is. You want to avoid running the machine over the cable and cutting it.

Most people get the hang of this fairly quickly and it is not difficult to do but does add an element of frustration that you do not have with a petrol or cordless lawn mower.

  • Power

While you do get some very powerful electric corded lawn mowers they are typically less powerful than petrol options. If you occasionally let your grass grow long or need to cut wet grass you might find the electric lawn mower a bit low on power. The same is true of steep inclines or banks.

Some models are self-propelled but most will need to be pushed by the operator. Think about your lawn and the garden conditions and look at the power rating before making a decision.

  • Durability

Not to say that corded electric lawn mowers are fragile but they are built to be lightweight. As a result, they are often not as durable as the heavier more solidly built petrol lawn mowers.

Things to consider when buying an electric lawnmower

There are a number of factors that one has to consider before deciding on a corded electric lawn mower.

  • Size of the lawn

With any lawn mower decision, this is always the first and most important consideration. It is fairly clear from the above that a corded electric lawn mower is only suitable for small to medium gardens. Anything more than 35 meters from the house or building and you will need to look at a petrol option. You cannot simply keep adding extension cords.

At the same time, you also need to consider the deck size and cutting width. Smaller models will be more nimble and easier to move. They are accurate and move around corners with ease. They will, however, take more time to cut a patch of grass than a model with a leger deck and blade. You need to find the right balance for your needs and the size of your lawn.

  • Accessories and other features

Determine what features you are looking for. Some people want a lawn mower that can much grass to return nutrients back to the soil and enrich it. Others might want a rear roller for precision stripes.

What to look for when buying an electric lawnmower

There are a few specifics we have already mentioned that one needs to look at before selecting the perfect model for your needs.

  • Weight

Although most are lightweight, some are heavier than others. Consider who will use the lawn mower and the layout of the lawn when considering the weight of the machine.

  • Power

If you cut regularly this should not be an issue but if you sometimes have long grass or a tougher variety you might want to look for one with more power.

  • Cutting height options

You also want to look at the cutting height options available and how easy they are to adjust. This will allow you to have the perfect length cut according to your needs, the type of grass and seasonal conditions.
