Best Cordless Self Propelled Lawn Mowers for 2020


If you need something to maintain your lawn, check this list with best cordless self-propelled lawn mowers, Amazon bestsellers that are easy to use and to maintain, reliable, and with high ratings by customers.

These lawn mowers combine several user-friendly features and I would say the most important of them you see in the title above, they are self-propelled and they are cordless. Such battery operated mowers have been around for decades already and this industry is growing and improving all the time mainly because of the improved rechargeable lithium-ion batteries technology.

Why choosing a cordless lawn mower

These are eco-friendly machines, they emit no pollutants, they are cordless, no gas is required, and they are quiet. Regarding maintenance, they are very user-friendly, this is all about taking care of the battery. After the initial investment, you are safe from anything related to gas prices rising. You do not have to change oil, to bring home and store gasoline, there is no annoying extension cord to drag around.

These machines are easy to use, they are typically far lighter than the gas-powered lawn mowers. Having no gas tank, they are also more compact than those operating on gas.

These lawn mowers have removable batteries so you can use a set of them; when one is empty you put the fully charged in and continue the work.

But there are downsides as well. So for example, these battery-operated cordless lawn mowers usually have less power and less consistent output than gas mowers. Recharging the battery takes time, this is why having two sets of batteries is so convenient. So if you have a larger garden, you might want to go for a gas powered machine. Normally, cordless models cost more than corded mowers.

If you are too busy to work in your garden, check some of the robotic lawn mowers, they will do the job automatically for you. On the other hand, if you have a large area to maintain, then check some of these riding lawn mowers.

How to choose – what to look for

Power: This is about batteries’ voltage and you will see a variety of numbers, 40, 46, 56, 60, 80, and 82 Volts. The higher the better, this is because of a cleaner cut with a more powerful machine.

Runtime: This is closely related to the mentioned power, but there is no linear relationship between these two features. So better check the Ah (amp-hour) value, that is the amount of charge a battery can deliver in one hour. A good lawn mower will give you 60 minutes run time.

The number of charges for the battery: This is about the battery life, and many of them will be able to recharge hundreds of times, so this means years of use.

Warranty conditions: There are big differences from model to model, and you will see different warranty conditions for the battery and for the tool. The best what we have seen are with the 5-year warranty.

Storage features: You will notice that some of the models in the list can be stored folded and also vertically. So they will not take much space in your garage or in your garden shed. With such a design, they save more than 50% of the regular storage space.

Other good features to have:

  • Better mowers will have a wide cutting width, up to 20″ or so.
  • As you know, these machines have height adjustment. So it is annoying to do this separately for each wheel. Better models will have 1-lever height adjustment.
  • The best batteries can charge under one hour.
  • You might want to have an LED for 24-hour mowing.
  • Having 3-in-1 functionality, i.e., grass catchers, mulching plugs that are built-in, and a container.
  • A weather-resistant construction is a bonus.

4 thoughts on “Best Cordless Self Propelled Lawn Mowers for 2020”

  1. Why don’t I find a cordless or battery powered, self-propelled or riding, 30 inch or more cutting width, residential or commercial mower?

    • Those are bigger machines and from what I see they are always gas-powered. My guess is this has something to do with the engine power.

    • Hi Eduardo, this model is not currently in our list. This does not mean it is bad, it is just that we have certain criteria for including the items, these are best-sellers on Amazon. I do not think they sell this machine on Amazon.
