Been watching this for a while. Price dropped from $400 to $257. Extremely good deal. Cheapest ever per camelcamel. Cheaper than 20" with one 4amp battery.

Appears to be a great lawn mower.

This is a great mower keep in mind a few things.
1. If you like to let your lawn grow to six inches before cutting you will hate this mower. You will essentially need to mow it twice for it to look nice.
2. I don't think you need 80v. I have the old twin force 40v which I don't think are brushless motors like this one and I can cut my simple yard 60/120 with just the one battery. The other battery I use for trimming, edging and blowing cleanup

I purchased this mower last Nov for $290. I live in Florida so I used it a couple of times with good results.

Yeah, I've read great things about the 80v, but most have not been pleased with the performance of the 40v.

Might be an issue for people in TX for example that have st augistine which needs more power to mulch properly.

BTW, do you have hills? I thought I needed the self-propelled, but it adds weight, reduces runtime, and I found the unit wasn't that heavy to push on flat terrain.

Now, if you have hills that's a different matter, but for flat yards personally I'd go without. Probably more reliable too since its one less t hing that can malfunction.

But I'd hold out for the 80V 21" greenworks (or the Ego Power 80V or Kobalt Lowes system).

Having owned both the 40V and 80V models, I can say that the 40V one is good only if your yard is small, like less than .2 acres. And then only if you cut your grass regularly. If you let your lawn go there may not be enough juice to finish up the yard. And recharging on the 40V model takes hours. On top of that if you just drained both batteries the charger will wait for them to cool down before it starts charging, adding on another hour or so. There really is no need for self propelled though-- the 40V is so light it just isn't an issue.
The 80V model is a massive improvement. It has more oomph and the charge times are fast enough that by the time you drain one battery the next should be good to go. I get around 30-40 minutes per battery if I mow regularly and maybe 20-30 minutes if I slack off and let the grass grow too tall. They also put a fan on the charger to cool down the battery, eliminating the cooling problem with the 40V models. I see a missed blade of grass here and there and sometimes have to do a bit of touching up after mowing. Even the 80V model doesn't have as much power as a gas engine and will bog down if the grass is a bit moist. The mulching action is okay but not as good as a good gas mower. But on the flip side there is no more gas to buy, no oil changes or dirty oil to store and drop off, no more spark plugs or air filters to swap out, no more breating engine exhaust and of course the quiet operation is much easier on the ears.

Very detailed post with great information. Repped. Once my gas mower, blower, weedeater, etc. start crapping out, I am pretty sure I will switch over to all electric. The longer I wait, the better the technology with get. It is just a pain keeping up with the maintenance.

Need to get a mower. Never owned one before. Never had a garden before. Friend suggested I only buy a Honda. So been in the lookout in Craigslist for a decent used one at a good price. But based on your comments I am thinking to get this one. I need to for about a half acre of will land/grass.

I own an earlier version of this. That shipped with one 4A and one 2A. It's great for my fairly small yard. No range anxiety. I never burned through the 4A.

Same here, price went up when I added it to my cart. The price is also reflected now on the product page :\

Have this mower and love it. It's not anything special but it does the job and the 40v works with my other greenworks tools

Greenworks mower I had did not do a good job, did not have enough push to get damp grass into the bag, and battery life was very poor. When I called them I was told it's normal for a battery to die after 15 minutes..what? Sold it on Craigslist for $40. Bought a cord model last Fall from Sun Joe (17") and it runs circles around the Greenworks battery model. I have a big back yard and with a cord, you never run out of juice. No more waiting for a recharge.
