This review has two parts:1.Product Review2. Snow Joe Customer ServiceProduct Review-Let's start with the challenge I had to solve for. I have an lawn that spans 2000 sq.Ft. That has never been dethached in the last 7 years. The lawn health has been steadily decreasing and no amount of chemical fertilizers or weed control have been able to restore the lawn to its early glory.

After giving up on the chemical treatment path, I tried aeration. Presumably it helped, but I saw no real improvement in the health of my lawn. Finally, I hit upon dethaching. My lawn has become a patchwork of living and dead grass.

I picked up the Sun Joe AJ801E for three reasons:1. It had the highest powered motor (amp consumption) on Amazon for dethaching2. It had a scraper / scarifier, which presumably will allow me to more easily reseed targeted areas of my lawn.3.

An excellent Dethatcher, surprisingly effective for its size. I was at first a bit skeptical but then the Amzn reviews encouraged me to give it a try, I don't regret it a bit! Renting a dethatcher from HD will cost you $75, you have to pick it up, transport it and return it.

I also had some unpleasant surprises with tool rentals: broken or not properly working = second trip. Secondly, I am lucky enough to have a smart neighbor: We share tools and bought this one together, hence the cost was a no brainer.Does it work?ABSO-LU-TELY!!!

It does a great job, does not damage or chop the grass like some others, it's easy to push and the tines seems to resist use fairly well. Update: after about 40,000 sqf of dethatching, the tines are in a much better shape that I would have imagined, see picture below.

Update: The mower also works great for mulching. It is very easy to change from mulching to basket. The mulching plug is very easy to use. I shop regularly at Amazon and frequently read and rely on customer reviews, but I hardly ever write one.

I have been mowing lawns for 60 years and have always believed you need a 5 HP gas mower to mow grass.Period.But times change. I wanted to try an electric corded mower to see if it would help with several issues.

Until last month, I had never, ever used anything but gas. This 16" mower exceeded all expectations. I gave away my old mower, gas cans, air filters, and tossed the oil changing pan and a bunch of other stuff. I am never going back.

This particular mower is very well designed. I do not know how well it will hold up over time, but based on three mowings of heavy, wet, tall northwest spring grass, I think the build quality is very good and I expect it to last.

I look after a very large woodland garden with evergreen shrubs. Leaves are the bane of my life... I have a leaf blower but I find it noisy, heavy, vibrates too much and eats too much petrol and lifts up all the stones from the paths and dumps on the grass only for me to have to rake them all off again.

After a bit of searching I found my solution - the lawn sweeper! This little machine is lightweight and uses no fuel all you do is push it along and ALL the leaves drop into the bag. Within minutes you have a bag full of leaves which you can dispose of as you wish.

You can adjust the height of the brushes to match the terrain/ size of the leaves. If the ground is uneven it is a little more tricky to pick up all the leaves but this can be overcome by adjusting the height.

Don't be tempted to fill up the bag too much before emptying because it can get surprisingly heavy. The brushes are also good at removing moss. You can use the sweeper on the road but not on gravel paths or all the gravel will end up in the bag.

I've had this mower for a little over a year now. It has served me and my lawn well. A little backstory about why i chose to go with an electric mower: My weekly chore growing up was having to cut the lawn at my parents (1/3 acre); my parents had a craftsman mower which had powered wheels and ran on gasoline.

The powered wheels were nice to have because the backyard had a slight downward hill to it but I hated dealing with the gasoline. I disliked having to go refill (albeit occasionally) the gas can or getting gasoline on my hands while trying to fill the mower with gas.

Sometimes, I would spill a little gas while trying to fill the mower. Not a dealbreaker but it was just annoying. I bought a new house recently and this lawn is significantly smaller (1/8 acre) and pretty level so I decided to give this corded mower a try.

I was a bit skeptical at battery powered mowers so I took some time and did a lot of research over this last winter before purchasing this, and notifying my yard guys I no longer needed them. I have now mowed 5 times this season (2018) and so far my expectations were exceeded .....

By a LOT (I don't say that often ;). I don't have large yards, front or back, and don't even come close to using up all of the batteries, even with mowing, trimming, and blower all with the same battery. I alternate between batteries each mowing to keep them 'moving'. (I know, too many and ,)Summary:1.

The cut quality is great.2. The mower is super light.3. It's quieter than my vacuum cleaner.4. The batteries charge quickly.5.No gas to purchase.6.No oil maintenance. I should have done this years ago.

This is the third Sun Joe mower that I have owned and the first of this model Sun Joe 24V-X2-17LM Mulching Lawn Mower w/Grass Catcher, Kit (w/ 2X 4. 0-Ah Battery and Charger). The two previous Sun Joe lawnmowers were the same model (Sun Joe iON16LM 40-Volt 16-Inch Brushless Cordless Lawn Mower).

In this review, I will frequently compare the two. All around this model (Sun Joe 24V-X2-17LM) is a better mower. It comes with two batteries and a dual charger (as opposed to 1 battery and single charger for the iON16LM model).

Both batteries are inserted at the same time, so you have pretty good power (for an electric mower). For me, this allows about an hour of mowing time. For my small suburban yard (2800 square feet) this is enough if I mow weekly.

The safety key that comes with the mower is better designed. (In addition to age, the safety key and the slot it plugged into both broke on the first mower, which caused me to purchase a second one). The flap at the back of the mover is made of a heavy-grade rubber-like material.

This is my first lawnmower I have purchased for myself, to go along with the first house I have ever purchased. Of course, I have used plenty of gas powered mowers in the past, so I'm well familiar with how they operate.

This Greenworks mower is just as good, except it's much quieter, much easier to start, (no starting cord to yank on) and MUCH easier to maintain. No gas, no oil, no spark plugs to worry about. It easily handles grass and weeds.

I live in the Northwest, in Washington State, and it rains here a lot. Which means, if you wait for the grass to be totally dry, often times it's grown pretty tall, especially in the Spring. This mower cut it right down, no problem.

In my side yard, the grass had gotten really tall, and there were tons of weeds and dandelions. This mower ate them right up, didn't bog down once. Although I did have to empty the bag more frequently, of course.

Pretty nice little mower, only it doesn't come with a little bottle of oil with the exact amount necessary so make sure not to overfill like I did or you will get smoke. Once I got the oil levels right the smoke went away almost instantly.

Mower pulls you at a good speed, not too fast, not too slow. It is also easily to maneuver. The bag is kind of small, so this mower is probably best for a small to medium size yard. I like it more than our self propelled self pace toro.

This mower was the best investment The cutting was nice and clean looking, the maneuvering was easy, and light weight to handle made for a quick pass! When the package arrived, I was quite pleased that it didn't weigh a ton.

There were a few issues I had with how the shape of the box was in when it was finally delivered. You could tell it was roughed up from not being handled with care. There was the original tape that it was sent out with that was pulled at certain places and the top wasn t even closed.

But the postal service had used shipping tape 7 times amongst the top to hold it shut. Which was a bit worrisome thinking that something could have fallen out in transit. Then when the carrier arrived, they carried it over to the designated spot asked to place it and just tossed it down as if it wasn't there problem anymore.

I bought this unit because I needed a small, lightweight mower that I could transport back and forth to my mom's house. I'm happy it came with two battery packs but it turns out my job is small enough that I only need one.

So far, this little guy fit my needs; I can lift it with one hand and use it as a trimmer and edger. Below are my thoughts on each feature:MOWERThis was my primary concern. I only have to mow a very small patch of lawn.

It's brand new grass, but it's grown so long. That said, the mower did well on areas that it trimmed; but rows of grass got pressed flat by the wheels, so those blades did not get cut by the trimmer.

I wouldn't blame the mower for that, because I can't see that any mower could reach blades that are lying flat. I suppose as the grass blades thicken up and stand up better, I will have less problem with that.

I bought this because I'm 67 years old and can't lift big stuff anymore nor jury-rig something to substitute for safely. I had to change the blades and install a mulcher kit on a John Deere Z335E zero turn 42 inch mower.

I'm handy with tools. I was able to assemble it in about 30 minutes out of the box, no missing parts or misalignment of holes for screws/bolts. It comes with 4 little wheels so it can be driven to the right spot for the mower.

I drove the mower on, put on the parking brake, chocked the back wheels, then jacked up to the max (2 ft?, ENSURED THAT BOTH ANGLE JAMS (I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO CALL THEM BUT THERE ARE TWO "JAMS" THAT FIT INTO SLOTS TO LOCK IN HEIGHTS.

BE CAREFUL, WHEN I FIRST DID IT, ONE WAS "IN" ONE WAS "OUT" . WITH MINOR TEASING, BOTH EASILY SEATED. Then I released the pressure on the bottle jack so it rested on the "stops" then retightened the release on the bottle jack to ensure that if the stops slipped, the jack would still hold.

Here's the review I wish I'd read when I bought this a year ago. My yard has a lot of weeds and crabgrass and who knows what. People who have that fine, thick grass like a golf green won't need this review.

(I have that in one part of my yard and this cuts it perfectly.1. This mower is quiet, it smells nice when I mow, and it's actually a little easier to mow with than with my old gas mower. It also cost me less than my old mower did.

I'm glad I got it, and hope I never have to go back to a gas mower.2. Used correctly, this mower will cut about 99% of the lawn very nicely. If you're a perfectionist this might drive you crazy, but in no circumstance will you cut every blade of grass in a yard like mine.

The reason for that is what I would consider a design flaw. The mower pushes over anything over about 6" in height and won't cut it-at all. When you have weeds in your yard and other non-ideal grasses, some of those will get over 6" before the lawn really needs mowing.

I bought this a year ago after doing a lot of research on various web sites, and it's met all my expectations. I get a good work out using it to mow the yard, so I can feel as if I'm killing two birds with one stone.

It isn't too heavy for me to push (I'm an average-height, lighter-weight woman), and I don't have any trouble repositioning it at the end of a row. I also love how little space it takes up in the garage. I've found the reviews I've read about reel mowers in general were right about a few things:1) They'll choke on twigs, pieces of mulch, walnut shell halves the squirrels leave behind, etc.

So you have to be patient about having your momentum stopped while you pick out whatever it is that's gotten stuck on a blade. 2) They work best on a yard that's relatively level. 3) They're much quieter than a power one.

I knew it would be small by the dimensions in the listing. So no surprise there. When it arrived it was almost dark so I had no plans on going out into the yard to cut grass after dark. However I did open the box and fully assemble it.

Just flip the handle up,put the two bolts through to join the handles together and its assembled. Its a 14 inch cut path and there is the matter of the electric cord that you will have to use. I must say the mower is pretty good for its size,it cuts grass...........

It looks like a toy but hey,its not. What I don't really like is that it does not have side discharge option. Either you use the bag or you mulch. I'm not sure if its supposed to do this but mine shut off as the bag is almost full.

All and all I'd say its a pretty decent little mower and its works well for a small yard.

I really wanted to do a review on the Earthwise 1715-16EW 7-blade push reel mower because it works so well. I have been mowing this year with the Fiskars 18 inch stay sharp max reel mower, and I have had some problems with it.

The way the front wheels are so far in front of the cutting bed with the rear wheels so far behind it can make it an issue when mowing on even a gentle hill; the bed drags on the ground and the mower scalps.

I also had a problem with any little debris in the yard catching in the reel and stopping the mower. When I purchased the sharpening kit, the first time I received a kit without a crank handle. Had to go through the return process and finally received the full kit.

But then when I went to remove the small gear on the reel shaft, I torqued my allen wrench 90* trying to break loose the set screw before the bolt hole finally stripped out. Don't know if they loc-tited the screw or if it was installed with an impact wrench at too high a torque setting.

Lawn Mowers Buying Guide

Henry Colon

What is a mower?

Mowers are agricultural machines that have been used to cut wheat and other winter grass. As the tools have advanced, they have also been used for mowing green fodder for hay, grass and also for cutting lawns in parks, gardens and sports fields, etc.

The mowers are composed of a cutting bar and a blade with reciprocating movement inside tiptoes, a pinwheel that pushes the vegetation against the cutting bar. There are manual, motor and some industrial mowers with the capacity to mow large areas of vegetation in a single pass.

Power

The power of the motor will define the cutting capacity of your mower. Gasoline engines are usually the most powerful, although there are electric motors with powers greater than 1500 W. These powerful engines will allow you to mow the lawn quietly and without getting tired on very large areas of land.

Battery models and robotic lawnmowers have less power. These mowers are ideal for small spaces, not exceeding 200 square meters. The power will also affect the type of grass that the machine can cut. For dense or thick vegetation, it is advisable to use a powerful engine.

Type of motor

In the market, there is a wide variety of mowers, with different motors. The most common and powerful is the gasoline engine. These are economical and have great autonomy, but their engine requires more care. The electric ones are somewhat more expensive but require less care. In return, they must be connected to the current.

There are models of mowers with cordless electric motors. These battery machines are much less powerful and when they run out they stop working until they are recharged. If you don’t want motor problems, some manual models are quiet and very easy to use and maintain.

Type of Mower

The most common mowers are gasoline and tractor type. These models are very powerful and have excellent autonomy, they allow you to cut large areas of land comfortably and quickly. They also adapt to garden imperfections. They require a lot of maintenance and can be somewhat expensive.

On the other hand, there are several models of mowers with electric motors. Some with cables, others with batteries and even autonomous robotic type. These require less maintenance but are less powerful. Finally, there are models of manual mowers, which are quiet and ideal for small terrains.

Ergonomics

Integrated carrying handles and ergonomic handles are, among other accessories, improvements that reduce the effort of the person or prevent damage to be done both when moving the machine and when working. Gardening activities are always exposed to inclement weather, so it is better to work comfortably.

Some mowers have ergonomic and flexible handles that absorb machine vibrations. There are also folding and lightweight models that take up little space and with height control options on the handle. Review the specifications of each model you look online and choose the one that best suits your needs. Good Luck!
