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.

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 :

  • 4 year warranty is very much a head turner. Although, of course, we all hope never to use these warranties anyway.
  • Lightweight and gets into all of those tricky little spaces.
  • Easy storage.
  • Easy to maintain and keep clean.
  • Eco friendly.

Areas for Improvement :

  • None really. The 25012 has deliberately positioned itself in the smaller end of the lawn mower market and delivers to expectation in that market.

Other things to be aware of :

  • There is no way to bag grass with this lawn mower.
