Caring for your lawn through the summer months can be tough with the accelerated growth that longer hours of sunshine and warmer climates bring with them. Because you have to mow more frequently, replenishing your mower’s gas can really start to gouge your wallet, especially during times of ample amount of rainfall that makes it necessary to mow every two weeks or so.
While gas-powered mowers are the traditional devices for mowing nowadays, there has been a recent trend of electric lawnmowers that are designed to cut down costs over the course of the mower’s life. Today, we’ll be examining two models of Greenworks corded lawnmowers to see which offers the superior mowing abilities. Because these products are part of the same brand and series, we’ll be comparing their general build, motor and power source, and cutting capabilities in order to determine which serves the user better.
This mower features a cutting deck that is 16” by 18” in size that connects to a handle that makes it 27” in height overall. It weighs 56 pounds and is easy to store or transport when not in use due to its ability to fold the handle in two and rest on top of the cutting deck.
It moves on two sets of wheels that are in 10” in diameter in the rear and 7” in diameter in the front. These wheels are made from an ultra-durable plastic that features grooves for more ease of movement through rougher patches of grass or across the more unstable terrain.
This model is 32” tall with a cutting deck that is 17” long by 21” wide, and it weighs much less than standard gas-powered mower at an easy-to-handle 53 pounds. Its steel cutting deck is propelled forward with its 10” rear wheels and 7” front wheels that can handle both straight and curved paths throughout your yard.
When you’re done using it, storage is made simple with the inclusion of its foldable push handle. Simply release a lock on the side of the handle and loosen the security pin at the base to fold the handle in half on top of the cutting deck. This reduces its height of 32” to around a third of that, giving you more room for wall storage above and around it.
Conclusion: This is just the beginning of a tight competition for these two models, as they feature a nearly identical build overall. All in all, the Greenworks 25112 holds an advantage with its lighter weight and sleeker, updated design. The larger cutting deck will also save you time on mowing in the long run as long as your yard doesn’t feature a lot of obstacles to mow around.
Motor & Power Source
This mower boasts a 12 Amp brushless motor that is powered through the use of a connection to a wall socket or generator. To start it up, you simply need to squeeze the handle’s bail switch bar to disengage the safety feature and then press its quick-start ignition button.
Power is established through the use of a 12 or 14 gauge extension cord (50 feet and 25 feet in length, respectively), which is not included in the purchase of this mower. Through the inclusion of an ultra-convenient cord retainer on the handle, you’ll never have to worry about getting tangled up in your cord or pulling it from its power source.
This model’s corded power source and 13 Amp motor make it the perfect tool for tackling small yards with ease. It includes an easy-start system that makes ignition as easy and squeezing the built-in bail switch bar and pressing a button.
It requires a connection to a wall outlet or generator, so you’ll need to chain its power cable to an extension cord (which is not included with the purchase of this mower). There is a cord retainer attachment that is connected to the handle that makes it possible to hold the slack of your extension cord taut to the mower, which will prevent your extension cord from being pulled out of your mower while in use.
Conclusion: By using a more powerful motor, the Greenworks 25112 holds an advantage over the 25022 model. Other than the almost negligible difference of Amps between the motors of these two models, there are no differences in the motors and power sources for these mowers.
This mower is constructed with a steel cutting deck that is 20” in width and is capable of cutting 18.5” paths at one time. On the side of the cutting deck, it sports a spring-powered height adjustment lever that can easily fluctuate between seven different heights (1 ¼” to 3¾”) to better tackle different thicknesses and species of grass.
One of its main features is its 3-in-1 clipping disposal system that makes it easy to dispose of your cut grass through the use of a bag attachment at the rear of the cutting deck or a side disposal. You can also attach a mulching plug attachment that will make your clippings finer and easier to integrate back into your yard, which provides nutrients that help keep your yard healthy and strong.
This mower features a cutting deck that is made from super durable steel. Its cuts paths that are 19.5” in width (the length of the blade) and features a height adjustment system on the side of the cutting deck that make it possible to cut up to 7 different heights (from 1¼” to 3¾”) for more control over the look and frequency of your mowing sessions.
You can attach a discharge chute on the side for easy disposal, or adding a mulching plug kit to easily dispense grass back onto your yard, providing extra nutrients to your lawn. If you prefer to collect your clippings for composting or to disposal in your trash, a standard rear bag attachment can be used.
Conclusion: With its slightly wider cutting path, the Greenworks 25112 holds a slight advantage over its competitor. Outside of the width of the deck, however, these two models offer the same features when it comes to the cutting deck, so they are made all but equal in the long run.
And the Winner is…
The truth is, these two models are nearly exactly the same as far as their general features and capabilities. Because of its wider lighter weight, sleeker design, more powerful motor, and wider cutting path, the Greenworks 25112 corded lawn mower holds the advantage over its predecessor.
However, these models are capable of almost exactly the same mowing jobs all in all, so if you have a smaller yard or don’t mind spending a little longer on your mowing time, the Greenworks 25022 would serve you in nearly the exact same capacity. No matter which model you choose, Greenworks has made it easier and cheaper than ever to tackle your lawn’s grass build up in the summer season.
