The GreenWorks 25022 12-Amp Electric Corded 20-Inch Lawn Mower is a 3-in-1 corded electric lawn mower that comes equipped with 10-inch rear wheels, 7-inch front wheels, 7 position height adjustment that offers a cutting height that ranges from 1 & 1/2-inches to 3 & 3/4-inches. Its height adjustment is also a single lever system, which makes it easy to change height adjustments on the fly. And while it’s 12-amp motor isn’t the biggest motor I’ve seen on an electric corded mower, it is powerful enough to do just about any mower task placed before it.
Once I received this mower, I took it out of the box and assembled it. From my experience with other GreenWorks mowers, I thought that this one should be easy to put together because most of them are and I wasn’t disappointed. Without having to use any tools whatsoever, I was able to put this mower together and get down to seeing how it would cut my grass. Like all corded lawn mowers, this mower didn’t come with an extension cord so I had to use my own.
Starting it was pretty easy and I began to work on my yard immediately. One of the first things I noticed about this mower was that it wasn’t as quiet as other electric mowers I had reviewed. Sure, it was a whole lot quieter than any gas mower you could put it up against, but it was a little louder than what I expected. I also noticed that it was a little bit heavier than comparable electric mowers. Of course, it’s not as heavy as a gas mower but it’s just a little bit heavier than some of the other electric ones I’ve reviewed.
I felt that this mower did a good job cutting grass, even when it was a little high. Yes, sometimes it would slow down when I had to do “heavier” mulching, but it never stopped on me. It just went cut the grass fast and efficiently. The cord would tend to get in the way for me at first, but then I changed my mowing pattern and it didn’t bother me after that.
I really liked the fact that I could fold this mower up and store it in my shed—a big plus for me. It’s not the quietest, lightest, most powerful or easiest mower to use but I do have to say that it gets the job done. In my eyes, this makes it a pretty decent corded electric mower.
