Looking for a cordless lawnmower? Perhaps it’s the first lawnmower you’ve bought or perhaps you’re looking to replace your old, worn-out corded ‘mower? Either way, what you’ll find on this page is a list of some of the best cordless lawnmowers currently selling on Amazon.

Before we get to the list, let’s take a quick look at some of the pros of buying and using a cordless lawnmower over a corded lawnmower.

The most obvious point is the lack of a power cable. This gives you way more flexibility, especially if your garden is fairly small. I know from personal experience that mowing a small lawn with a corded lawnmower adds a level of frustration with each turn. The cable needs to be moved and positioned so it won’t get caught in the blade during the next pass.

Cordless lawnmowers, and petrol lawnmowers, remove that headache and let you focus on cutting the grass instead of worrying about running over the cable.

What other factors do you need to consider when buying a cordless lawnmower? Let’s take a look.

Battery

Before you buy a cordless lawnmower make sure you check the specs of the battery. This is what’s powering your machine so it must be adequate for your situation.

Typical sizes include 18V, 20V and 40V.

A small to medium-sized garden doesn’t take a long time to mow, so although a 20-minute run-time might not seem very long, it certainly gives you enough time to cut the grass in the average UK garden.

Typical run-times for the machines we’ve looked at when researching this article vary between 20 and 30 minutes with the majority coming in at 25 minutes.

When it comes to recharging the battery, you’re looking at anywhere between 50 and 75 minutes.

Some companies make batteries that fit everything they make including power tools. Bosch is one such company with its 18V Power for All battery system. The range of tools that one battery powers include hedge trimmers, drills, jigsaws, grass strimmers, garden pond water pumps and sanders.

So, if you already own a cordless Bosch power tool and you buy a Bosch cordless lawnmower using the same power system, you’ll have a spare battery you can use with your lawnmower or power tools.

Cutting width

The cutting width refers to the size of the blade on the lawnmower. Typically, they’re made in one piece and attached to the machine via a bolt at the centre point. The average lawnmower, whether it’s corded or cordless has a cutting width of 32cm but it is possible to buy lawnmowers with a cutting width anywhere between 30cm and 42cm.

As you might expect, typically, machines with larger blades have higher price tags.
