Several buyers suggest coming up with a mowing pattern that moves away from the outlet and thus makes it harder for you to trip over the cord. One buyer found that the motor would get dirty during use and recommended opening it up and cleaning it with compressed air. When you first lay eyes on the Sun Joe MJ401E Mow Joe 14-inch 12 Amp Electric Lawn Mower you may be struck by how small it is. At 29 pounds it weighs almost half as much as the next lightest mower on our list. This makes it easy to maneuver but it does raise questions of durability.
More than 2100 buyers on Home Depots site recommend the Toro Recycler 20333. The most helpful reviewer found the powerful engine did an excellent job of chopping through foot-high grass and the rear wheel drive gave him power while turning. He also mentioned that he could almost jog with it. Another buyer notes that his Toro still runs well after three years of questionable maintenance. He does note a couple negatives: It is a bit louder than the Honda and if you go to fast the mulch is not fine enough.
Other buyers comment that the mower feels and look like a toy. It seems flimsy. But they also found it could handle child-swallowing yard growth. One of the coolest features of the Toro Recycler 22-inch Personal Pace Variable Speed Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower that kept coming up in our research is the blade-brake clutch. This allows you to stop the blade without stopping the motor of the mower which is helpful for moving debris out of the way.
