Very often, nature walks are considered therapeutic to you, the one walking, but the selfishness ends there with cordless lawn mowers in the form of walk behind lawn mowers (aka self propelled cordless lawn mowers) which offer beauty therapy even to the most neglected front yards. However, not all battery powered lawn mowers come with the same package.

How to identify the best cordless lawn mowers

It’s no secret that the search for the best lawn mowers has never been easy for anyone, but the following tips should help you in your search for that perfect lawn mower:

How long does the battery charge last?

The best cordless mowers are known to keep charge long enough so you don’t have to spend more time charging them than you are using them. Be sure to check how long the charge can last or how much the lawn mower can mow on a single charge. While most models mow no more than 1/4th of an acre on a single charge (with their 24v rechargeable battery), some of the best Black & Decker cordless lawn mower models like the CM1936 19-Inch cordless mower let’s you mow up to a 1/3 of an acre thanks to its 36-Volt battery. A bonus feature of this particular model is that it’s battery is also removable which means that if you have an extra battery, you can mow up to 2/3rds of an acre in one go.

If you’re looking for a self propelled cordless electric lawn mower, the Black & Decker SPCM1936 is what you should look at. The battery life is even more important with self propelled cordless mowers because the ‘self-propelled’ feature itself uses a considerable amount of energy.

How environmentally-friendly is the cordless mower?

It’s about time “environmentally-unfriendly” gas powered, self propelled lawn mowers were phased out, and it starts with you – the user…

Even if you don’t care too much about environmental conservation, you most likely care about yourself…and you most likely would not want to own any of the cordless lawn mowers that are so noisy it hurts, or those messy lawn mowers that spill oil all over and leave a chain of smoke behind so even the skies may know that there’s work underway on your yard…!

How heavy is your walk behind cordless lawn mower?

They’re called “walk behind lawn mowers” and not “thrust behind lawn mowers” for a reason! What’s more, if pushing the lawn mower will be an uphill task, then so will trimming your hedges. The best lawn mowers are known to be easily navigable and light to push, or better still, self propelling, so all you have to do is simply walk behind!
