REVIEW – Most of us have spent our entire lives using gasoline or corded electric lawn tools. In my youth, gas lawnmowers I used were horrible. It required me to pull on the starter cord 10 to 20 times to get the mower to turn. Once it did, the next step was to blend gasoline and oil. Finally, the maintenance of the 2-stroke engine and any breakdowns or running out of fuel. I changed from my gas mower several years ago to an electric corded mower. This made it much simpler to maintain and start the mower. Thanks to Greenworks’ new battery technology, we feel that electric mowers are entering a new era. For review they provided a 2x 24V 48V 17” Brushless Lawn Mower. So I tried it out in extreme heat and drought. It was very easy to set up, use and it works much better than any gas mower that I remember from my youth.
The package that they sent me is an optional version that also includes a 24V screwdriver/drill, so I’ll include a section below about my thoughts on that as well.
Greenworks 2x24V 48V 17’’ Brushless Lawnmower is a cordless, battery-powered electric mower. The mower is lightweight and you have the option of using it with a bag for trimmings or plugging it in to mulch your yard.
It is interesting that the dual 24V batteries configuration has been introduced. Greenworks, among other companies, used to have different line of tools with lower or higher voltages (e.g. 20/40/etc.) to suit different purposes. These 24V packs can also double as 48-volt chargers for some tools, giving the user greater flexibility and offering the best of both. A single charger and set of batteries can power over 75 different tools (and counting), though this number includes many duplicates like 10 different lawnmower models. The range of their power tools seems to include at least one model that I could use every day, as well as some more uncommon options such a kid-friendly Jeep ride-on.
Included in the box is the Greenworks 2 x 24V (48V) 17” Brushless Lawn Mower, 24V Drill/screwdriver, dual-charger, AC input for the charger, 2 x 24V battery packs at 4ah each, a belt clip for the screwdriver, the grass clippings bag, and manual.
What would I change?
The vertical storage balance isn’t possible
Greenworks 2x 24V (48V), 17” Brushless Mower sent me to review came with a Greenworks 24-volt drill/screwdriver. I used this repeatedly throughout the review period instead of my usual 20V Black and Decker cordless drill for various projects. Although it is lighter, the Greenworks 24-V drill feels much more powerful than other drills and can apply more torque. This drill was comparable to the corded one I use for really high torque. Adjustable keyless Chuck (you can loosen/loosen the rings close to the front to attach/remove the drill bit/Phillips driver head). Also, it has an adjustable torque setting so that you don’t over tighten screws.
I visited Lowes and Home Depot for this review and perused the gas mowers. I found that a standard gasoline mower costs around $200. However, they have slightly more cutting paths. The mowers are heavier than the Greenworks. If you plan to also use Greenworks power tools such as trimmers and blowers, the price of electric mowers will be comparable or even better. Greenworks other tools, which don’t come with batteries, are usually cheaper than those with gas counterparts. One example is the $190 price tag for a trimmer. Another similar-sized trimmer was $40 at Greenworks. Amazon has no such deal. (If you have this mower and two large batteries then you probably won’t require more batteries for your other tools). After several weeks of using the Greenworks 2x24V (48V), 17’’ Brushless Lawn Mower, I was satisfied with its performance and ease-of-use.
