GreenWorks 25142 10 Amp Corded 16 Inch Mower Review 2018
The GreenWorks 25142 Corded 16 inch Mower is an electric 10 Amp motor that delivers enough power to get your yard done quickly and efficiently. It has robust steel of 16″ cutting deck which offers highest performance and long durability. This electric mower has 7″ rear and front wheels and those make it easy to maneuver around trees and flower beds.
It has a single lever 5-position and single lever height adjustment that offers a range of cutting height from 5/8″ to 25/8″ for the perfect cut on all types of grass and condition. It has 2-in-1 feature which offers rear bagging and mulching capabilities for versatile needs.
First of all, I tried out the grass catcher bag. I had so underestimated how useful it is!!! It should be called a vacuum bag. Using the bag instead of mulching plug, the vacuum effect also makes the mower like a Flow bee, sucking the blades of grass so the mower will cut them more precisely. Also, the vacuum bag can hold more than I thought. It takes much faster than I expected to fill it up. By the way, it is important that if you attempt to mow grass that is particularly wet, it may tend to accumulate around the blade.
This mower exceeded my expectations in build and the way it mows!!! Besides free shipping, the first thing you’ll notice opening the box is that it is properly assembled. You just need to tighten four knobs on the handle and then you are ready to use. I am sure you do not even need to read the manual before using, although I do suggest you to read it properly.
The features may make the GreenWorks 25142 Corded 16 inch Mower feel heavy, but it is not as heavy as you would think. Adjusting the cutting height is easy. You just need to push on a handle that moves the mower up & down smoothly. It is also quieter than the usual gas mowers, and The Bag is simple to attach and remove from the electric mower and also easy to empty.

There are also some cons that you should be aware of before you consider the GreenWorks 25142 Corded 16 inch Mower. There is no option to tilt the handle of this lawn mower from its base and it prevents it from using on a slope ground. It is better for small to medium sized lawns as it is 16 inches. So if you have a big lawn, you will have to empty the bag often; although, this is very easy to do. It has a cord, unlike other electrical lawn mowers. So you will have to be careful with it while using it & please do not leave it plugged in around children. Be very cautious about this as there are quite a lot of accidents like this occurring each year. Other than these minor considerations this mower is mower highly recommended. This should be all you need for your small to medium lawn.
