It may seem odd to many of us to be considering an electric lawn mower, after years and years of dealing with thirsty and cumbersome gas-powered units. However, advances in motor and especially lithium ion battery technology have indeed brought us to the point where the average suburban homeowner can swap out the old gas hog for an electric, cordless lawn mower.

We are always thrilled by alternative electric lawn tools, but not all cordless mowers are in our view are worth buying. Among those that do have the power and quality to warrant consideration is the Greenworks 25292 40-Volt 4 Amp-Hour Lithium Ion 19-Inch Lawn Mower.

One of the closest rivals to the 40-volt Greenworks 25292 at the moment is the Black & Decker SPCM1936 36-Volt mower, as both are well-built, 19-inch self-propelled cordless mowers that have so far earned very high satisfaction ratings. However, the Greenworks 25292 is currently selling at slightly higher price than the Black & Decker SPCM1936, which begs the question – why and is it worth it?

Well, the Greenworks 25292 does have some obvious advantages over the Black & Decker. First off, the Greenworks uses a larger and more powerful 40-volt battery/motor, which not only gives the Greenworks a slight edge in raw cutting power over the 36-volt Black & Decker SPCM1936, but also a better runtime as well. Of course, the Black & Decker uses a power adjustment feature that can allow you to ration power and increase runtime – but this only makes a diffierence if you don’t need to run the mower at flat out maximum power as a matter of course.

Another glaring bonus of the Greenworks is that it comes with two battery packs. This is in fact a big deal. With two packs, you can easily switch out the first when it exhausts, which doubles your runtime and then allows you to use one while you recharge the other. Indeed, as with most cordless things, lithium batteries are not cheap. To buy an extra pack for the Black & Decker SPCM1936 would cost you an additional $160 alone – which is much more than the difference in price between these two mowers.

In virtually all other practical respects, these two mowers are very similar. Even the rare negative comment is similar – such as the mower having difficulty with tough grasses.  One difference we did note, however, was that most of the complaints of the Greenworks were aimed at its customer service support, rather than the mower itself.

Either of these mowers is likely sufficient for the typical suburban home that is less than a 1/3 of an acre in size and is not colonized by very tall or difficult, weedy grasses. Nevertheless, as far pure value and coming with the most recent technology, we would have to give the edge to the Greenworks 25292 40-Volt 4 Amp-Hour Lithium Ion 19-Inch Lawn Mower. On the other hand, if your main concern is the quality and level of the unit’s customer service, we’d have tip the scale towards the Black & Decker SPCM1936 36-Volt Cordless Mower.
