Corded Electric Mower

Why to Buy It
Electric mowers have been around for decades, so the technology is fully mature-and cheap. They produce no emissions while you're mowing, and they're lighter than gas mowers, requiring no tune-ups or oiling to work properly.

Keep in Mind
Since the cord keeps you tied to a power source, these models are best suited for small lawns-no more than a quarter-acre. Most corded mowers don't offer as much power as amped-up gas mowers, so make sure the one you pick can tackle your terrain.
