Lawn Mower Reviews 2016

Updated on November 6, 2015

There are two types of powered lawn mowers; gas and electric. Those with a smaller, more level lawn can save money on gas by using an electric powered mower. Electric mowers are limited by their cords; cordless electric models generally have less power than those with cords. If your lawn is large or bumpy and hilly, you’ll need a gas powered mower.

Weed Eater WE-ONE 26-Inch 190cc

This ride-on mower is powered by gas and has an electric starter, it is great for larger than average lawns. Problems have been reported by consumers, but these have been due to error in putting the machine together. Carefully follow all the instructions in the manual and this mower will treat you and your lawn well.

Lawn Boy 10640

The Lawn Boy combines power and reliability with a low price tag. The motor starts every time, eliminating those prayers as you pull the starter rope. It’s easy to push, pull, and manoeuvre around the yard, and as an added bonus, it’s quite quiet for a gas powered mower. This mower can mulch just about anything the average yard can throw at it, including twigs. Although the handle vibrates during use, that is a common problem of gas mowers, and doesn’t make it any more difficult to use.

All around, the Lawn Boy is one of the best mowers you can get.

Black & Decker LM175

This electric mower is pretty powerful as electric mowers go, and if you have a small lawn this might be just the mower for you. It’s light and easy to maneuver, even with one hand, which is great because you need the other hand to keep the cable out of the way. Be aware that an extension cord is needed with this electric mower, because its cord doesn’t actually extend far past the handle of the mower. For owners of small gardens who don’t want to invest in a behemoth of a mower, this is the one for you.

Black & Decker CM1836 18-Inch 36-Volt Cordless Electric

This cordless lawn mower is currently the “best of both worlds”. That is, it saves you money on gas without the constant danger of mowing over the mower’s own electrical cord. The CM1836 features an adjustable cutting height and quick and easy assembly. This mower starts easily, and runs quietly and smoothly. Your neighbors will be happy you bought it! Like all electric mowers, it runs without emissions, and this has an added safety feature that prevents children from starting it up. It’s easy to charge as well.  For small lawns, the Black & Decker CM1836 may just be the perfect solution. 

American Lawn Mower 1204-14

The American is a good budget lawn mower, but it’s really only practical on small lawns. The cutting blade is small, so it would take an excessive amount of time to tackle a large lawn. This mower is really not capable of handling anything at all besides grass, so you’ll have to be willing to give the lawn a good once over with a rake prior to mowing. This push mower is fairly easy to manoeuvre and push through the grass, even if you aren’t the strongest person. The bottom line is this is a good mower if you want to save money on the purchase price and avoid paying for gas or electricity to power it. Also, you’ll get more of a workout with a push mower.

There are a variety of lawn mowers out there, and they are all designed and suited to different uses. Hopefully taking a look at our list of the lawn mower reviews 2016 will help you make the lawn mower choice that is best for you.
