Greenworks 60V 25" Self-Propelled Mower News & Opinion

Greenworks 60V 25″ Self-Propelled Mower


New Residential Greenworks Mower Uses Commercial Design

A while back, we had the chance to test the Greenworks Commercial 25″ mower, which employed a unique and effective cutting blade design. It looked odd, but it had some pretty great runtime and a deck that covered a fair amount of ground to get the job done fast. Well, the technology Greenworks developed for the commercial mower has now trickled down to the residential class. The Greenworks 60V 25″ Self-Propelled Mower has the same overall design with a price more reachable for homeowners.

Greenworks 60V 25″ Self-Propelled Mower Highlights

Blade Design

Much, but not all, of what is unique about the Greenworks 60V 25″ Self-Propelled Mower revolves around the cutting deck. This mower features a 25″ steel cutting deck, which extends about 3″ farther than what the larger end of the battery-powered mower spectrum shoots for. This is achieved by the mower’s cutting blade design.

The Greenworks 60V mower employs a dual cutting blade design whereby Greenworks positions two 12.25″ blades side by side to extend the overall reach to 23.75″.

If you do the math here, you’ll notice that it doesn’t quite add up. That’s because the blades spin counter to one another with their paths overlapping. The blades have a lower tip speed than what you might expect, but their smaller and lighter build allows the motor to maintain that tip speed, even in overgrown conditions.

With the Commercial model, this design proved effective, and we expect the residential model to perform similarly.

Greenworks claims this mower achieves 30% better mulching with this design and 40% better runtimes. Finer clippings mean that you empty the collection bag less often, while less stress on the motor means more mowing per charge.

Overall, it’s an effective design that has proven to work well with the Greenworks Commercial model.

Dual Port Power

Another design feature that we appreciate is the dual battery port. We’ve used a lot of mowers that have a single port with another storage compartment, but when the first battery runs out of juice, you have to manually switch the batteries over.

With the Greenworks 60V 25″ Self-Propelled Mower, when the first battery runs out of power, the mower automatically starts drawing from the second. You don’t need to stop mowing to switch over.

Storage

Vertical storage has become more popular with battery-powered models lately, and it’s a helpful feature that Greenworks includes here as well. When you’ve finished with the actual work, you simply fold the handle over the body of the mower and set it up vertically up on its rear end. Moved up against a wall, this design saves a ton of space.

Height Adjustment

This Greenworks mower model features 7 cutting height positions with a single-point adjustment. It’s more convenient than models that require you to adjust each wheel independently.

Pricing

The Greenworks 60V 25″ Self-Propelled Mower is sold exclusively at Lowe’s. It comes packaged as a kit with one 4.0 Ah battery, one 2.0 Ah battery, and a charger. The whole setup retails for $699. Both the batteries and the mower itself are warrantied for four years.
