If you're looking for a deal on an electric, cordless mower that will most closely resemble your gas-powered mowing experience. This is it.

Got this as part of the similar deal last Nov 2018. We have a 0.2 acre lot. I can do the whole thing with 2 2.5mah batteries. Sometimes if the grass gets too long, I have to use a 3rd battery that I got as part of another Greenworks yard tool slickdeal. It's been great. It's quiet and lightweight. No issues so far.

It's not self-propelled, but very light for a steel deck mower.

Regarding the $162 deal... it's an old model, 19" deck, doesn't have a brushless motor, only comes with 1 battery.

All of those things matter too.

Verified owner chiming in Smilie I will try to address all questions. First off, I own 4 4.0ah batteries, some going on 4+ years now, still holding strong. I have the cordless trimmer, string trimmer, and this mower.

In regards to this one vs the 19" one that was on sale for 162$ a while ago. Size DOES matter. I had the 19" model for years before this, then upgraded to the 21". Those extra three inches do add up, and this model seems sturdier, i.e. full steel deck, stronger wheels etc.. Plus the brushless thing is great, esp w/ battery life. Bigger cutting deck means more efficient use of the battery. My 1/3 acre takes ~ 1 to 1.5 of the 4ah batteries, and I do bag vs mulch to help control ticks

You will not need self propelled on this. It is very light and pushes easy. My lawn is quite bumpy, but it absorbs it well. I can pick it up with one hand and I am by no means a strong person.

60v vs 80v vs 40v . To add to the comment earlier , I think I remember reading somewhere that higher voltage is not necessarily more power, but there was something about how the higher voltage batteries charged quicker for some reason, and there was also a trade off somewhere. The biggest thing is to choose a battery line that will be supported in the future. From what I can tell, the 40v is not going anywhere, but b/c it is older, you can tend to find better sales on the 40v line vs the newer/higher voltage lines. Like the other commenter, I am not an electrician , so please correct me if i am wrong.

Battery size. The 2.5 ah are small and do not last long. The 4.0ah seem to be more efficient or something, and they seem to last more than twice as long. Although rare, they do go on sale from time to time. just set up a CCC price alert and also a SD alert for the keyword greenworks. Make sure to set the thumbs rating low so it is triggered early. You do not get many false positives.

In regards to the starter going out, for whatever reason, they have this crappy starter button on most of their lawn mowers. I had it go out on my 19" and I feel like it would go out on this one too. It is designed poorly and makes this awful click that makes me cringe every time i push it. Luckily , it is not hard to replace and they have a wonderful warranty program. I generally get right through to a rep, and they have sent me many replacement items over the years. Just make sure to save your woot/amazon receipt.

several (nitpicky) cons, definitely not deal breakers.

1. The battery compartment is tight, the 4ah batteries are hard to impossible to remove. 2.5 ah batteries are much easier
2. See comment regarding starter button
3. This will NOT be as powerful as your gas mower, but plenty powerful.
4. I had a struggle finding the correct replacement blade. Read my story here


Overall, this is a fantastic mower, and a great way to get into the 40v line of tools. They are interchangeable and do go on sale, especially at the end of the season. Buy now, and wait for the 4.0ah batteries to go on sale (or just buy one outright). I bought one battery off of the amazon warehouse, and it has been rock solid, so you might check that route too. Also, I see 40v batteries go on sale on FB marketplace/'murder'List/letgo etc..

Let me know if you have any other questions!!

I am just going to chime in here and say what a fantastic mower this is!

One caveat, buying replacement blades for this mower was very confusing for me. Please read my post here explaining the issues and associated links to buy the blades.

Please note, this is mostly my only gripe with the mower, otherwise fantastic and if you need one, I 100% encourage you to buy it at this price!

While I am not a Greenworks owner - I am an batt-mower owner (Craftsman) & wanted to chime in & encourage people on the fence to get this excellent mower or any other battery mower.

Being able to mow all the way up to freezing & not messing with gas & oil is a major game changer for some of us lawn nuts.

I know this mower was as low as $150's during some slick deal at the end of summer but this is an awesome mower esp. sub $200.

Wow, this mower would be an absolute steal @150! I do not think I have ever saw it dip below 200. I bought from woot in nov 2018, and used it all last season, no issues. i also stocked up on the blades when they dipped to $9. I am tempted to buy another , sell the batteries, and keep the mower as a backup (since I already have 4 4ah greenworks batteries)

My old gas mower died this fall. I've been keeping an eye on mower deals and this same deal was FP earlier in the year. Thanks OP!

Sorry I was mistaken - it was a 60V version of these Greenworks:

I have this mower and it's awesome. It's not self propelled, but it's so light most people should have any issues pushing it.

I know nothing about mowers. Is 60V better than 40V?

Not sure of the difference in model types but there was another 40v model for 162 recently

I got this Woot deal last year on a similar model. Our yard is maybe 1/4 of an acre and the two 2.5 batteries that are included barely do half of it. Do yourself a favor and invest in the 4.0 batteries. It is a great mower though, no complaints.

I was in on the 60V deal, used it a few times. The thing is awesome would recommend! This is 40V but it has two batteries so should easily handle most peoples larger lawns.
