The Best Cordless Lawn Mowers

Updated February 21, 2017

Lawn maintenance is the key to maintaining a lush, green lawn and having the right lawnmower to do the job will make it easier to cut each week. Cordless lawnmowers remove the awkwardness of having to constantly move an extension cord out of the mowing path, providing more mowing freedom beyond the reach of an electrical cord. The concern for the environment is another reason for selecting a cordless mower. The no-air emissions of cordless mowers make their use an environmentally responsible way to maintain a lawn.

Toro e-Cycler 20360

ConsumerSearch's best reviewed choice for cordless electric lawnmowers is the Toro e-Cycler 20360. Its key features are in its ability to cut the grass evenly up to 4 inches in height, and its high-domed deck makes it a good mulching mower. The Toro e-Cycler 20360 is a 20-inch mower equipped with a stationary 36-volt/12-amp battery that produces at 432 watt-hours of power and recharges to 70 per cent capacity in three hours, according to ConsumerSearch.

It offers three mowing options for the grass clippings--rear-bag collection for discarding grass clippings, side discharge for throwing the grass clippings back onto the lawn and mulching for chopping the clippings into finer pieces for lawn food.
