Your Best Digs rated the Greenworks 22502 as the best electric lawn mower. The reviewer found this push mower easy to maneuver thanks to its lightweight design. He also liked that it was much quieter than the gas mowers he tested. However he noted that dumping the clipping was awkward since there was a crossbar in the way and he would have preferred it if the mower came with an extension cord. Greenworks offers the option of buying the mower with an extension cord for $30 extra.
Consumer Reports recommends the Toro Recycler 20333 because of its very good ratings in ease of use handling side discharging and bagging and excellent mulching. The reviewer specifically liked the washout port for cleaning buildup under the sizable deck. The Wirecutter used to list the 20333 as the runner-up pick but supplanted it with the 20340 because of the newer models upright storage. However the reviewer still recommends the 20333 if the blade brake clutch is more important to you than compact storage.
