Independent Review : Greenworks 25012 Electric Lawn Mower

Thank you for visiting our Greenworks 25012 review page. We are confident that you will find the information you need.

This lightweight mower offers a 4 year warranty, which is twice the standard length of an electric lawn mower warranty. We wanted to see why Greenworks were so confident that they could offer such a warranty and to also see how close to using that warranty the 25012 would get.

Greenworks 25012 – Product Details

Greenworks pride themselves on having a zero carbon footprint, which is pretty impressive for a company that sells (among other things), electric lawn mowers.

It’s true that the 25012 is not the bulkiest of mowers but it does do the simple things very well. Assembly takes less than 2 minutes. Greenworks 25012 Review Image

As with many of these smaller lawn mowers, the 7 step height cutting adjustment is via a simple single lever. This works smoothly enough with no reported issues.

Starting up is never going to be a problem with corded electric mowers and it positively hums when compared with the roar of a gas mower. The power lead is protected with a cord lock feature, which prevents it from becoming disconnected when in operation.

You do get a good cut with this mower, but don’t expect to be able to bag the grass clippings. You can’t even buy an attachment bag separately. A mulching plug is provided and works well, as does the side discharge.

Being a light-weight mower, we were expecting this to struggle with higher and thicker grass – but not so. The Greenworks 25012 competes with the best of them.

Summary

The Greenworks 25012 is a tidy little lawn mower, which is best saved for smaller flatter gardens. Its manoeuvrability means that if you have tricky little obstacles to negotiate in your back garden, then this would be the ideal mower for you.

This lawn mower is ideal for people such as the elderly or people with a slighter frame, who will find working with the Greenworks 25012 very easy.

Good Points :

  • Lightweight and gets into all of those tricky little spaces.
  • Easy storage.
  • Easy to maintain and keep clean.
  • Eco friendly.

Areas for Improvement :

Remington 18A-212A783 Review

Thank you for visiting our Remington 18A-212A783 review page.

When the founder of this web-site found out that were going to be reviewing a Remington, he thought that someone had bought a new shaver, or hair clippers (Tut ! Tut ! He needs to be educated).

Remington lawn mowers are part of the MTD stable of brands, who use the phrase “The Past We Inherit. The Future We Create”. We aimed to find out how innovative they are by looking at the Remington 18A-212A783.

Remington 18A-212A783 – Product Details

This lawn mower has a three in one deck, which enables mulching (mulching plug provided), rear bag (provided), and side discharge (side chute provided). Remington 18A-212A783 Review Image

The handle comes with our old favourite, the foam covering. It certainly helps absorb vibrational shock and therefore makes mowing easier on the fore-arms and wrists. Tests in the fall, proved that this lawn mower can handle the mulching of leaves with no problems.

The deck can be raised and lowered via a single lever. Six positions raise the height from 1.25 inches to 3.5 inches.

As is typical with electric units, this is not a self-propelled lawn mower. However, it is light enough to push round your average yard without too much of a sweat.

As with many similar mowers, the handle folds down for easy storage.

  • None.

Black & Decker MM875 Review

Welcome to our Black & Decker MM875 Review.

The MM875 is another popular model from the Black & Decker stable of quality lawn mowers. But does this live up to all the hype ?

Black & Decker MM875 Review

The Black & Decker MM875, also known as the MM875 Lawn Hog, is a corded electric Black & Decker MM875 Review
rotary lawn mower, which offers the choice of mulch or grass collection.

A single chunky adjustment lever, just above the right rear wheel, ensures that all 4 wheels are raised or lowered at the same time.

The handle is adjustable – although in our experience the adjustments don’t really add much to the height, just the distance from the actual mower. The handle does, of course, fold flat for storage.

Easy to start electrical system, with the wire looping round a hook, on the handle, to make sure that the cord does not pull out when in operation.

You get a mulching box, which goes into the back of the lawn mower, and also a grass bag, which attached easily and securely.

Overall you get a very clean-cut with this electric lawn mower and we would recommend this unit for a small to medium-sized lawn.

Specifications

  • Full Descriptive Title : Black & Decker MM875 Lawn Hog 19-Inch 12 amp Electric Mulching Mower with Rear Bag
  • Model : MM875
  • Power : 12 amp motor
  • Blade : Rotary
  • Cutting Height : 1.25 inches to 3.5 inches
  • Cutting Width : 19 inches
  • Propulsion : Push Mower
  • Start : Simple plug-in and pull lever system
  • Grass Collection : Mulch or rear bag
  • Wheel Size : Front – 7 inches/ Rear – 8 inches
  • Weight : 52 pounds
  • Warranty : 2 years

The following video shows the Black & Decker MM875 in action :

Summary

As the Black & Decker MM875 Lawn Hog is a corded electrical lawn mower, there are going to be the obvious advantages over, say, a gas mower.

For example, it’s cleaner, better for the local environment, lighter and quieter.

On the down-side, it was never going to have the power of a gas mower. However, it does pack a fair punch, when compared with some of its electrical peers.

Putting the comparing apples with pears aside, we shall just focus on our expectations against the facts for this model.

Good Points :

  • We absolutely love the cushioned handle (why can’t all lawn mowers adopt this) AND that the gripping handle is set at an ergonomic angle for each hand. How long the sponge will keep its springiness and comfort is any ones guess, however.
  • Eight cutting settings is quite impressive, although some would say that this amount of choice is too much for an average garden.
  • Keeping it clean is easy, but also vital if you want to avoid motor burn out.
  • Great little cutter. However, in really long, wet grass, you might have to stop and give the underside a bit of a clean before you’ve done.

Areas for Improvement :

  • Collecting bag holds about half capacity before overspill starts to occur (some people have reported spiliages after just 1/3rd full.
  • We prefer the full bar operating handle, as gripping on just the right side could get a bit tiring for those with a weak grip.
  • The fact that it does not self-propel might be an issue if you have a few steep bits to your garden, and even more so if you are collecting wet grass in the bag.

Other things to be aware of :

  • Being a corded lawn mower, this immediately brings down the price and the weight. But with those benefits, comes a downside. Remember to keep your feet clear of cord. With our last couple of reviews being either cordless electrical mowers or gas lawn mowers, it’s easy to get a bit tied up – especially with a long extension cord.

Black and Decker LM175 Review

Welcome to our Black and Decker LM175 Review. We hope to provide the information you are looking for.

The LM175 has received an extraordinary amount of positive reviews over a several years and its popularity never seems to wane. Therefore this was always going to be a lawn mower on our review list, and this Black & Decker unit did not disappoint. There is a very good reason for all of those positive reviews.

Black and Decker LM175 Review

Black and Decker have a reputation for producing bright orange lawn mowers (in fact, most Black and Decker LM175 Review image
of their branded power tools are this color). So, it was a bit surprising to see one of their most popular lawn mowers in a grass-green color. But don’t let that put you off, this baby mower really does tick some of our traditionally critical boxes.

The LM175 is at the lighter end of the electric lawn mower market, but this does not mean it is weak on power. The 6.5 amp electric motor proved to be very efficient and many customers will be impressed by how quiet it operates (6:00 am lawn mowing is now a reality).

A single lever operates the height adjustment from 1 inch to 3.5 inches and the 18″ cutting blade provides a neat cutting finish.

Even without a self-propel feature, this unit is light and nibble enough to manoeuvre over small to medium-sized gardens. The grass is discharged out of the side, and a small bag is available separately.

Specifications

  • Full Descriptive Title : Black & Decker LM175 18-Inch 6-1/2 amp Electric Mower
  • Model : LM175
  • Power : 6.5 amp electric motor
  • Blade : Rotary
  • Cutting Height : 1 inch to 3.5 inches
  • Cutting Width : 18 inches
  • Propulsion : Push Mower
  • Start : Electric
  • Grass Collection : Mulching (Side-bag option available separately)
  • Weight : 35 pounds
  • Warranty : 2 years (Lifetime warranty on deck)

Here is the Black and Decker LM175 in action :

Summary

Overall it is a good little mower for the price. Of course, being one of the ‘light-weights’, it is going to have its limitations (don’t expect it to hack through knee height grass). However, if you are prepared to keep your grass relatively short (say no more than ankle height) then this lawn mower will zip round your garden in no time.

Good Points :

  • Very light weight and manoeuvrable.
  • Value for money.
  • No frills simplicity means you can have it running less than 2 minutes from sitting in your arm-chair thinking about cutting the grass.

Areas for Improvement :

  • The LM175 mower is going to struggle if your garden is as big as a football field, or the grass is more than shin height.

Other things to be aware of :

  • It’s not self-propelled, but at this weight it really doesn’t need to be.
  • It does not come with a grass clippings collecting bag. There is one you can buy separately, but it does not hold much (unless you have a very small garden, then you might need to empty it before your run is complete). Black & Decker BA-075 Side Bag Assembly
  • As with all cord mowers, you need to keep the lead away from your feet and the cutting blade.
  • This is a 6.5 amp motor. If you want something with a little more power, then the same mower is available with a 9 amp motor available called the Black & Decker MM275 18-Inch 9 amp Electric Mulching Mower.
