Greenworks 25052 Review

Another reel mower review from our stable of lawn mowers. Greenworks have a couple of reel mowers – we chose model 25052 to review.

Greenworks 25052 Product Detail

There is a little assembly involved when you unbox this – but nothing too taxing.

In line with most reel mowers, the Greenworks 25052 we reviewed is best left to grass that is below 3 inches tall. If you have a jungle, you might want to consider alternatives. That said the cut is very even.

Of course there are many advantages in using a manual reel mower – most of which are environmental. The 25052 does tick most of the boxes.

It’s easy to operate. It’s clean and you can quickly finish your whole lawn, without the laborious setting up.

And of course it is very easy to clean when you’ve finished. Simple, effective and it does the job.

Good Points :

  • This is a great mower for a very affordable price.
  • Long term warranty is better than its competitors

Areas for Improvement :

  • There are more smoothly operated manual reel mowers. However, for the price, we can’t really complain.
  • The grass catcher isn’t the best – you might just want to take it off after a while. It seems to just hang on the back, and this might irritate some people.

Other things to be aware of :

  • The blades are of high quality, but sharpening them often will reduce the effort you have to put in and it also provides a cleaner cut as well.
  • When you need to purchase a blade sharpening kit, then one is available here – Scotts Classic Sharpening Kit – Reel Mower
