Greenworks 48V 17-Inch Cordless Lawn Mower Review

Table of Contents


The vast majority of us used corded electric or gas-powered lawn equipment throughout our lives. It is time to use battery-powered lawn tools. The Greenworks 2 x 24V (48V) 17?? Brushless Lawn Mower is an electric lawn mower that runs on batteries. It is quite portable and may be used to gather trimmings with a bag, or, if you prefer, you can plug it up and mulch the cuttings into the ground.

With just the click of a button, it is straightforward to get started. It cuts lightly, making it soothing to the ears. So simple to store in compact areas; if desired, it can even be hung. The handlebars are one example of a metal component. Although the adjusting is done via a button and grab-bar on the top of the mower, the height adjustment features an easy-to-read indicator, as seen above.

It offers back bagging and mulching capabilities, among the other benefits. Over 50 indoor and outdoor goods, such as lawn mowers, blowers, string trimmers, chainsaws, power tools, and more, are powered by the Greenworks 24V lithium-ion platform. The 24V lithium-ion battery delivers fade-free power with no memory loss after charging and offers 20% more power and 35% greater runtime.

Who Is This Product For?

Greenworks 48V 17-inch Cordless Lawn Mower is suitable for everyone. Whether you’re a veteran lawn mower user with enough gas-powered lawn mowers and want to try something new or a new lawn mower user who wants an easy-to-use and efficient lawn mower, this product is for you.

Greenworks mower units require much less maintenance than a conventional gas unit. It will still need regular seasonal care, though. After use, make sure to inspect the device for any loose nuts and bolts and secure them as necessary. Do not submerge this device in water. Examine the blade for wear or damage, then replace or sharpen it as necessary. Batteries and chargers should, of course, be kept indoors.

There are two Greenworks 24 Volt Powerball included with the item. And without leaving the 24-volt battery base, these batteries combine to provide 48 volts of excellent, better than gas power. When using two 4Ah USB batteries that have been fully charged, the product can run for up to 45 minutes. Run-Time varies depending on the state of the grass and the operator’s style.

The lawnmower also comes with a dual port charger. The product’s highly effective brushless motor offers increased torque, silent operation, and a longer lifespan. A sturdy 20-inch steel cutting deck completes the task more quickly and effectively. The 4-In-1 System’s mulch, rear bagging, side discharge, and turbo button greatly aid leaf collection and power output.

Impeccable Design

Impeccable Design

Nearly the entire Greenworks 48V 17-inch Cordless Lawn Mower is made of high-impact plastic, giving it the impression of being long-lasting. The handlebars are one example of a metal component. Although the adjusting is done via a button and grab-bar on the top of the mower, the height adjustment features an easy-to-read indicator, as seen above. The mower blade is a common item that appears easily detachable for sharpening.

Lift the green plastic cover in the back, take out the plastic plug on the right side, and then slide the bag into the back of the mower if you wish to collect the grass clippings in a bag. The plastic wheels are mounted on incredibly sturdy metal axles. The wheels are strong and show no symptoms of coming away despite numerous heavy bumps into concrete garden boundaries.

The mower deck also has a plastic shroud that hangs across it to stop anything from flying into your ankles as you move. The bottom of the battery slots has a lovely spring that makes it easier to remove the batteries for recharging. Batteries cannot be inserted wrongly in any way. Additionally, they have a good high-impact plastic construction and a push-button to monitor the power levels.

Easy to Install

It is simple to install the handle because it is fastened with quick-release fasteners. The batteries must then be charged using the dual charger, which must be plugged in. These chargers will take about three hours or more to charge from completely dead fully. It is possible to remove the safety key that is installed. The batteries are then forced in until they catch. Battery installation and removal are simple, and the slots fit the batteries properly.

The second battery must also be installed because this mower requires both to run and uses their combined 24 volts to power a 48-volt motor. And that’s it! Your lawnmower is prepared for usage. You must hold the start button while holding the safety bar to the handlebars to turn the mower on. Although interchangeable tools and batteries exist for each voltage line, they cannot be used with other voltage lines.

For instance, 40V batteries can only be used with 40V equipment, and 24V batteries can only be used with 24V tools. The following order must be followed for the unit to start. Otherwise, it will not start: Press the safety switch button firmly.

Use one hand to push the safety switch button and the other to pull the bale switch in the other direction. You can let go of the safety button and keep holding the handle after the machine comes on. The safety button must be depressed before pressing the bale switch for the device to turn on.

After installing the product, there are a few things you need to be aware of. Never try to alter the wheel height when the motor is running. Avoid pushing the lawn mower; it will complete the task more effectively and safely at the rate for which it was intended. Avoid overextending yourself and always maintain good balance and footing.

The mower being pulled over the foot during a fall brought on by slipping or tripping causes several injuries. Slipping and falling can result in severe personal injuries. Release the control handle as soon as you feel yourself losing balance, and the blade will stop whirling in three seconds. Never walk while the mower is being pulled back toward you.

Spectacular Performance

The product can cause you to second-guess yourself. You could be concerned that the battery-powered electric mower won’t perform as well as gas-powered lawn mowers and will have trouble with some of the thicker portions of your lawn. But we promise that compared to other gas-powered mowers you’ve tried, it cuts right through them.

When it comes over a thick spot, it increases motor revs. You can go from being fairly short to fairly long using the height adjustment, which is fairly simple to operate. You manually raise or lower the mower by pushing a button on the bar at the upper back of the mower housing. To safeguard your eyes during an operation, when making an adjustment, or when performing a repair, you should always wear protective glasses or safety goggles.

Objects that are thrown and ricocheted can seriously harm the eyes. We recommend using a face shield or a dust mask if the operation is messy. Never run the mower without a functioning side discharge chute, grass bag, mulching insert, discharge cover, or other safety features. Never use a mower with faulty safety features. Personal injuries may come from failure to comply. To maintain optimum performance, continue to cut edges clean and sharp.
