With this lawn mower, there is no need to keep a container of gasoline or constantly charged batteries available during grass cutting season. The GreenWorks 25022 is powered by electricity that is received through an electrical cord that can be conveniently plugged into any standard electrical outlet. It quickly starts with the push of a button. It has a 12 amp motor that can easily work through a lawn that has missed a few cuts. To aid in tackling just about any lawn situation, the cutting height can be adjusted to seven levels between 1.5 inches and 3.75 inches. The 10 inch rear wheels make maneuverability a cinch over uneven ground and around flower gardens or structures.
Raking up the grass clippings is another thing that does not need to be done when using this lawn mower. When using the side discharge option, the clippings are not left in clumps in a line where the mower passed. The GreenWorks 25022 also has the option of a clip-on collection bag that is easy to remove and empty. When using the third option of mulching the clippings as you cut the grass, the grass bits settle quickly between the standing grass blades and decompose to add nourishment to the soil.
The GreenWorks 25022 has a metal deck which is sturdier and less likely to get scratched or damaged than a plastic deck. The height adjustment device is also made of metal. In addition, the adjustment is quick and easy with definite stops that lock it in place. Instead of adjusting each wheel separately, the whole mower is done at once.
The included collection bag is easy to attach and remove. In fact, it is not as wide as some other models and it can easily be lifted off by reaching between the handlebars instead of bending behind the handlebars to remove the bag.
There are no awful fumes associated with this mower because it runs on electricity. This also means that it will not be adding to the pollution level every time you mow your lawn. The electric motor also runs more quietly than motors that are powered by gas.
Although this lawn mower requires an electrical cord for use, one is not supplied by the manufacturer. The user needs to buy the correct gauged outdoor electrical cord that is the appropriate length needed to reach their entire lawn. Shopping for the best electrical cord might be a challenge for some users that are not accustomed to it.
Learning how to manage the electrical cord while mowing the lawn can be tricky and some users might get entangled or trip over the wire. Besides the possibility of personal injury, this might cause the cord to come unplugged. In addition, there is the possibility of accidentally running over the cord with the mower while cutting the grass.
In some incidences, using this mower might cause the circuit breaker to be tripped. Usually this can be remedied by turning off other things that run through the same breaker, resetting the breaker, and continuing the mowing of the lawn. However, it is possible that this might not resolve the issue and the mower might cease to run altogether.
Using this mower does not add to either noise or air pollution and there is no need to stop for refueling or replacing a dead battery. If you can manage the cord and possible problems with the tripping of circuit breakers, it is a great mower.
