Best Cordless Lawn Mower – Head to Head Comparison
Handle Comfort & Adjustability Winner – EGO LM2001
When it comes to comfort with respect to push mowers the handle is a big deal. We evaluated the five mowers on comfort and adjustability and found that the EGO LM2001 was not only the more comfortable but it offered the easiest height adjustment. The EGO offers a durable, yet comfortable foam/rubber padding on the handle and a comfortable angle configuration on the main handle that allows for a couple different hand positions.
|Brand||Model #||Grip||Handle Height||Adjustments|
|Black & Decker||CM1936||Foam/Rubber||39″ – 40″||3 positions – remove bolts|
|Craftsman||25081||Foam||38″ – 39″||2 positions – remove bolts|
|EGO||LM2001||Foam/Rubber||42″ – 46″||2 positions – quick release|
|Kobalt||KM1940-06||Foam||38″ – 39″||2 positions – remove bolts|
|Kobalt||KM2040X-06||Foam||38″ – 39″||2 positions – remove bolts|
It’s worth noting that the EGO had a much higher handle height than the other models which I prefer as I’m over 6′ tall. For shorter users, this height may be an issue to consider. Rob is quite a bit shorter than I am and he still found the lower setting to be comfortable.
Maneuverability Winner – Craftsman, EGO & Kobalt
Maneuverability of push mowers is especially important when trimming around gardens, trees and other landscaping features. The ease with which the mowers role is largely a result of the wheels and mower weight. We had a 3 way tie for this category between the Craftsman 25081, EGO LM2001, and the Kobalt KM2040X-06. All three mowers had good size wheels, relatively low total weight, and comfortable handles.
The heavier weight and smaller wheels on the Black & Decker made this mower feel much harder to push and maneuver around obstacles. The steel deck Kobalt KM1940-06 also felt “heavy” and less nimble in this category.
