If you’ve been through numerous various lawnmowers and still have not found one that agrees with you, I feel your pain. There are several choices out there. First, there’s a bunch of different types, and then within each type, there are several brands offering numerous models. The Greenworks 25022 is an electric-powered model and one that I heard many customers had been raving about, so I wanted to examine it out myself. I’m going to inform you what it’s good at, what it isn’t so proficient at and who I think need to consider buying it.

This is a durable lawnmower that has a big cutting deck and great deals of zest in terms of power. The mower cuts lawn like a champ, though it’s suggested to have the blade sharpened before you initially use it if you wish to make certain that your very first mow is best right out of the gate.
I’m not grumbling that their blades are dull, it’s simply my personal preference. I discovered that the GreenWorks 25022 cuts grass equally throughout the entire yard and is highly maneuverable since the deck is rather thin. This function comes in useful because you can get close up to “challenges” in the lawn such as trees, flower beds, mailboxes, and light posts and cut easily around them.
Likewise, it’s not what I’d think about a heavy, hard-to-push mower, so cutting on slight slopes isn’t a huge offer. This is among my first electrical lawnmowers from GreenWorks I’ve had the satisfaction of examining (though I’ve seen other ones utilized), and I was impressed at the tranquility of it.
2. Easy To Use
The GreenWorks 25022 is compact and starts right up like a dream. You plug it in, turn the safety key, and after that, press the starter button. I’ve had past gas-powered mower that makes you seem like you’re tearing your shoulder in two when trying to start it, however, this mower isn’t like that at all.
The mower does not feature an extension cord, so if you do not have one convenient, get a truly good one. I suggest acquiring a 16-gauge extension cord if your lawn is less than 40 feet. Otherwise, a 14-gauge cable should suffice. The more you trim with the GreenWorks 25022, the more proficient you’ll end up being at preventing the cord.
Utilizing a cord in general for a lawnmower is not a perfect setup, but then again, I understood I’d have to handle that when I purchased this mower. Plus just the reality that it utilizes an extension cable can be annoying given that you’re continuously on the lookout for adjusting the cable.
Though the GreenWorks 25022 lawn mower is not self-propelled, it’s simple to press since it’s not heavy. Be sure to take a look at a few of the available videos from GreenWorks that demonstrate how to operate the cord retainer and install the mulching plug. If I had one gripe, it’s that the mower is not self-propelled.
3. Unique Features
Something I have not discussed the GreenWorks 25022 electric lawnmower yet is that you do not need to mess with foul-smelling gas and, though it does require electricity to run, you’re putting out a little less contamination on the planet by utilizing it.
Even in the brief time I’ve had this lawnmower, I’ve noticed that the fuel odor in our shed (due to our last gas-powered mower that was in there) has disappeared and hasn’t returned. So not to get on a soapbox or anything, but I do feel like I’m doing the environment some excellent by using the GreenWorks 25022. Other top features include excellent grass-cutting quality, ease of wheel-height change, a strong engine, easy upkeep (up until now), and a great rate.
The wheels on my old gas-powered mower needed to be individually changed and were a major hassle to heighten and lower– that’s not the case at all with the GreenWorks 25022, which has just one lever that adjusts all 4 wheels. Though some may prefer not to have one lever that controls the height of all four wheels, I discover it to be an outstanding function.
The GreenWorks 25022 can store yard clippings in the rear bag, give off the clippings from a side discharge area, or lawnmowers can mulch their lawn, an option in which the cutting deck will slice the lawn into small pieces that will work to break down the soil of your yard at a faster rate. I suggest mulching– at least periodically– for the overall health of your yard.
4. Cut Quality
Whether trimming through thick, long turf or sporadic grass atop rough, clay-like soil, the GreenWorks 25022 cuts lawn cleanly and moves smoothly. The effective 12-amp motor slices through even the toughest lawn, and with an overall of seven adjustable height positions, mowers can cut their grass at anywhere from 3.75 inches to a mere 1.5 inches. T
his 3-in-1 mower has a bag to catch clippings, or mowers can merely let grass fly out of the side discharge location. Best of all, a minimum of, in my opinion, is the mulching capabilities of the mower, which have come in helpful in our front backyard with all the leaves that have been steadily falling this fall season. Mowers will have the ability to cut their lawn within an approximately 100-foot radius of the electric outlet, which easily covers all the ground of most outdoor lawns.
This lawnmower can be folded, enabling it to be easily kept, even in an automobile trunk if required. The total maintenance of this mower is low compared to the maintenance of a gas-powered lawnmower. We store this mower in our shed; however, it can be kept outside or in the garage, and it hums to life right away with the touch of a button. Greenworks uses four-year parts and labor warranty on the lawnmower.
Another nice feature of an electric lawn mower is not needing to worry about changing spark plugs, and air filters, and you don’t need to replenish the gas and oil continually.
6. Safety Features
This mower does come with a security key that is required to begin it up, therefore making it difficult for children to use it unless they had access to the secret. It does not launch harmful emission into the air, hence making the air quality around you far better as you’re mowing. I utilized to take in a great deal of smoke-filled air utilizing my old gas-powered mower. This is a pleasure to use and take in the nice fresh lawn cut air, without the horrible fumes.

This mower is a fantastic all-rounder and performs well. I’m half tempted to recommend it to absolutely any homeowner, but the fact that it’s a corded mower does restrict it rather. I never really suggest corded lawnmowers to individuals that have large gardens to look after, so if that’s you, then I can’t suggest this one. However to those people who have small or medium-sized gardens and more than happy to deal with the electrical cable television– buy this one today! It’s the best corded electrical mower I have used in a while.
