Ever wondered which brands and types of lawn mowers repeatedly get the best reviews? It’s an investment, no doubt, and you want the best machine for your money. Here’s a round up of lawn mower brands with great reputations, solid customer service, and five-star customer reviews.
The Best Lawn Mower Reviews
Consumer Reports named the Black & Decker SPCM1936 the best cordless electric push mower of 2012. I always like to check out customer reviews on Amazon to get an even broader scoop. With almost 300 reviews, this mower has a good rating of four out of five stars. Read reviews and buy on Amazon.
Corded electric mowers are great for smaller yards. Consumer Reports named the Black & Decker MM875 their favorite. Customers on Amazon seem to agree. With over 500 reviews, this mower is pulling in a solid four stars.
Next up is the best rated gas self-propelled mower, the Honda HRX217HYA. This machine also has nearly 300 reviews at Home Depot, and comes in at just a hair under five solid stars. Folks have good things to say about this mower, including “best mower ever!”
Popular Mechanics rated the Toro 20332 their favorite self propelled gas mower of the year without any cons noted during their testing. However, when checking out consumer reviews online, there are some mixed results. Some love it and some feel they got a bad machine that cuts unevenly. Do your research on this one!
How about a good old fashioned push mower? The Fiskars StaySharp Max 6201 has nearly 400 reviews on Amazon and earned the ‘best’ stamp from Consumer Reports, and another solid four stars. Fiskars is a brand I trust for all my sewing shears, it doesn’t surprise me that they’d make a great manual mower as well.
