I'm looking for an electric lawn mower. I don't have a lot of grass to cut at my house so a small mower is fine. I want a reliable and low maintenance mower since I'm not very handy with machine so I want a reliable mower. I don't mind corded because with cordless, you have the battery to think of, an extra thing to maintain. But if the mower is reliable and cordless then I'm fine with that also.

Do you have a brand and model that you recommend that is reliable and low maintenance? Thanks

We have no back yard (paved drive/patio), no grass in side yard and a very small amount of grass in the front yard (lots of flower beds). Because of health problems (we're well into our 70's), we still use a lawn service to mow and weedeat twice a month. But when we get a lot of rain like this past month, and it needs mowing in-between visits from the service, like this month, my husband uses the ERGO battery-operated mower bought at Lowes. He is very pleased with it and has had no problems to date. If fully charged, it will do the entire yard (front and side street section) in one full charge.

I have the Greenworks 25022 listed in the link on RpR's post. I have a 500-sq ft lawn and the mower makes easy work of it! I've had mine for 2-years now and I just replaced the blade 2-weeks ago. I am happy with it.

I have a Ryobi 40v and I love it. It's been running smoothly for 2 years. I live in SC, and I plant rye grass in the winter, so I mow the lawn once a week, all year.

We actually have two lawn mowers: a Ryobi 40v for the front yard and a riding mower for the back. We bought the Ryobi first and it just couldn't tackle the 1/2 an acre in the backyard. The front yard is an average size, and the Ryobi does great. We can get through the entire front yard with one battery charge. It's also surprisingly lightweight and easy to fold up and put away.

Conclusion: for a yard over about 1/3 an acre, I'd go with a gas-powered mower. Anything under 1/3 an acre could easily be tackled by the Ryobi 40v. It's quiet, and you'll make up for the small cost increase by not having to purchase gas for the machine.

I bought an EGO 21" self-propelled back in 2015 at HDepot for $400. with a 5-year warranty (which pretty much explains a great reliable product.) Well after I believe after the 3rd year I had issues, called support and they replaced the unit. This device has been a dream performer. I have a small yard and on average takes me roughly forty min. to mow. After each use, I run out the battery when it cools, keep the blade well sharpened, and cut always at the 3" level. Off course like everything else it has drastically increased in price, however EGO will definetly be the brand I strongly recommend.
