The GreenWorks 25112 13-Amp 21-Inch Corded Lawn Mower is a corded electric lawnmower that is equipped with 10-inch rear wheels, 7-inch front wheels, an electric start, and a 7 position height adjustment that allows you to set the mowing height from 1 & 3/4-inches to 3 & 3/4-inches. It is a 3-in-1 mower that allows you to bag, to discharge the clippings from the side or mulch the clippings.
The first thing that I noticed about this corded electric mower when I received it was that it was easy to put together. I just had to unfold the handles and make a few adjustments—all without having to use any tools whatsoever. The next thing I noticed about this mower was that it had a cord lock to prevent accidental disconnection of your extension cord while you’re mowing. Unfortunately, like most corded electric mowers, it didn’t come with an extension cord. That’s something you’ll have to buy yourself.
Starting this mower was easy thanks to its electric start and I was off mowing my yard in no time flat. Its 13-amp motor is pretty powerful for an electric mower and it did a pretty good cutting my grass—as long as the grass wasn’t too high. If the grass was more than 3-inches tall or so, then this mower did have a tendency to slow down a bit, although it did eventually get the job done. And while it did a good job with everyday mulching, when I tried to do a little heavier mulching, then this mower would bog down a bit.
This corded electric mower is well built, very quiet and works very well. I liked the fact that it had larger back wheels that made it easier to push over rougher terrain. It’s easy to use and I had no problems with it while I put it through its paces. As is the case with all corded lawn mowers, the extension cord determined what I could reach with the mower but that’s okay because I had quite a bit of cord already on hand.
All in all, I think the GreenWorks 25112 13-Amp 21-Inch is a great electric mower that is capable of doing a great job, as long as you’re reasonable with your expectations. As long as you use it for average sized yards, or smaller, and don’t expect it to do your heavy cutting, then this unit should be a fine choice.
