Best Corded Electric Lawn Mower 2019

2019-Best Corded Electric Lawn MowersAs the title states this post will be about the best corded electric lawnmower 2019 has to offer at this point. Right now it’s at the beginning of July in 2019 , so we’ve had half of the year to determine which corded mower is best. It’s important to understand that there are some differences between the corded electric lawn mowers. My attempt is to save you trying to compare all the choices. Let’s get started.

Corded Electric Mower Criteria

I first determined certain criteria that I would use to rate the candidates to make my list. First off I wanted them to be available online and I chose models up to $300. If the candidate for the list had at least 10 reviews on various sites I included it in the list. The reason I chose a low number is because some of the models are newer and it takes some time before people leave a review. One of the most important factors was the customer ratings. If Amazon had a decent number of reviews I only used the Amazon number to put them on the list. If Amazon did not have enough reviews I checked other sites and combined the review numbers to see if the model would still have a high enough star rating to be included. I chose to only pick models that had a star rating of 3.7 or greater. I did sneak in one other that was lower but it didn’t make the final cut. I only included mowers that were new.

Now when looking at lawn mowers I was going to initially just do one list but decided to divide it up because you have small, medium and larger mowers. Another important choice was to put the buy link that goes directly to the page on Amazon for each item (its next to the green Checkmark) into the table. Just hit the back button to return to the table. Amazon’s price can change often, especially with me notifying them of lower prices. They usually get within $3 or so if they have to lower the price to match a competitor. I just did one a couple weeks ago and they matched it the next day. Below you will find tables for the best corded mowers of 2019 in each category.—(Return to Top)

These 4 Medium sized mowers have their differences. If what you want is the absolute best value then go for the Remington especially if you want all 3 cutting modes. The Greenworks 25012 doesn’t even have an option for bagging but it has been around for a while. There is no bagging for the Earthwise either. If all you need is a basic small mower and don’t want to bag the Greenworks or the Earthwise are good choices. The SunJoe has the strongest motor but the cut is narrower. The Remington has the widest cut of these choices. I will include the links to specific electric lawn mower reviews as they are finished, so this table will evolve. — (Return to Top)

This was the part of the research that was really surprising. For Black and Decker to not even have 1 in the group was the shock. This is proof that Greenworks is really trying hard to get a large share of this market. I even called them for some of my reviews and I was able to talk to a real person that was based here and knew about the products. That was refreshing. I did have to wait but with the volume increase they are having that was understandable. If you want the tried and true go for the Black and Decker in the next table. If you want a fantastic contender go for either of the Greenworks models, the Sun Joe, or the Earthwise. These are all good mowers.—(Return to Top)

These 3 mowers are here because they are decent and should improve on Amazon if what I see on other sites holds true. The Works model has a sister that has fixed front wheels and seems to be just as good as this one. You can see that HERE. They are worth considering if they suit your criteria.

Corded Mower Rating Factors

It is difficult to say that one particular mower is better than all the others, but I believe this is as close as you can get. The following image is a snapshot of the spreadsheet I used to do the ratings. If you right click the image and then choose view image you can view it full size. The full spreadsheet is available below.—(Return to Top)

Final Rating

Before I added the formula to determine the final rating I was certain to get all the factors and the appropriate numbers in the line without knowing how it would affect the final rating. By doing this I forced myself to stay objective. There were several models of lawn mowers that had to be dropped from the list even though they initially made the cut. When you got down to the details there was no way they could stay on the list and remain objective. By this, I mean they fell off of the list because one of the initial criteria, when looked at further, was negated with additional research.

Final thoughts

Personally I was surprised at the outcome. When all factors were considered objectively I really thought other mowers would be higher up in the ratings. I do believe that this effort shows that if you take a lot of different factors and give them a rating you can find which mower or mowers are the best. Most people will be pleased with any of the mowers in these 4 tables. Choosing the factors that matter to you is what will determine which one is best for your situation. You can look at the raw worksheet HERE. There are 2 sheets in that spreadsheet: one for initial data, and another for sorting. There are some things I can not help you with. For instance, if you really like green colored lawnmowers then you have got to take a look at the Greenworks line but that is not an objective rating. I hope these tables will help you in deciding which corded electric mower you decide to get. There are several other items you need to know about with a corded mower. The most important item to consider is the cord that you buy to power your mower. Too small of a cord and you will burn out the mower. See the following articles to get the info you need.—(Return to Top)
