Have you walked out to your lawn one sunny day, with intentions to give it a nice makeover only to find yourself accidentally mowing the electric cord? Hey, happens to the best of us. But Greenworks has come up with a solution to that problem. The Greenworks brand has made a series of battery-powered electric lawn mowers that promises to deliver the goods. No more having to juggle cords in one hand and the mower in another!
I’m going to be looking at 3 of the more popular battery powered options from Greenworks below.

GreenWorks 25302 Twin Force G-MAX Cordless Lawn Mower Review
- Your purchase includes: G-max 25302 Lawn mower (push button start & dual blades), battery charger and a 5Ah Battery
- Fully charged 5Ah lthium-ion battery gives it an approximate runtime of 60 minutes, option of extending this time with an extra battery port. Run-Time varies based on grass condition and operator technique
- 20-inch cutting deck offers a balance of maneuverability and cutting capacity making it ideal for mid-sized areas, while dual blades offer better cut quality, superior mulching and bagging capabilities
This new model comes equipped with goodies that could make a lawnmower enthusiast’s head spin. What is great and unique about the Greenworks 25302 is its Twin Blades. The Twin Force G-MAX ensures that mowing your lawn is as efficient and time-saving as you can make it, running simultaneously for best results.
You’ll probably be thinking, how efficient can this product be? Running on battery? It won’t last long. Don’t be too quick to dismiss it. The Greenworks 25302 runs for 70 minutes on a single charge, and it’s pretty smart. 2 lithium-ion batteries are included in the package and this is more than enough to tackle your weeds. The batteries take a couple of hours to charge, and then they’re ready to roll!
What is also great about the GreenWorks 25302 Twin Force G-MAX 40V Li-Ion 20-Inch Cordless Lawn Mower, is that you don’t have to worry about changing batteries once the first one dies. There is an automatic battery switchover which starts drawing power from the second battery once the first one is depleted. A huge time saver. It’s the attention to detail that makes the 25302 such a good product. The Innovative Smart Cut technology adjusts itself for power or runtime after sensing the thickness of the grass.
Having a 20” cutting deck is also an advantage. You wouldn’t want to mow your lawn for longer than needed. This cuts down on the time you work, so you have more time to enjoy the benefits of your freshly mowed lawn. It is quite light as compared to gas powered mowers, and definitely easier to manoeuvre around your lawn. As with Greenworks products, the 25302 is without saying, an Eco-friendly product. The advantage of having an electric mower is that it is way quieter than its gas powered cousins, and you don’t have to deal with gas emissions.
Another big draw to the GreenWorks 25302 Twin Force G-MAX 40V Li-Ion 20-Inch Cordless Lawn Mower is the one handle to adjust height settings. The product having 6 different height adjustment settings may make your lawn mowing a lot easier. You would have to observe that although there is no light indicator on the 25302 showing whether the bag is full, the flap will not move. This will indicate that there is no space for the air to move, and the bag will need to be emptied out.

- Slight Gap between twin blades causes the 25302 to pass over a small patch of grass which would require a second pass.
FAQs about the Greenworks 25302:
Is there an indicator on the unit indicating which battery is running & which is depleted?
Yes, there is a red Indicator on the battery showing that it’s in use.
How long is the warranty on the mower? The batteries?
4 year repair warranty on the unit, 2 year warranty on the batteries.
Does lawnmower come fully assembled?
All you have to do is assemble the handles and charge the batteries, everything else is done
The Greenworks 25302 model definitely proves to be hassle-free as compared to other models due to the cordless feature. The idea of using a battery-powered lawn mower has mixed feelings though. I’m rather the type of person that requires a ready-to-use product if I’m in the mood to mow my lawn.
If you’ve forgotten to charge your batteries, however, you’re in for a bit of delay. The Twin Blades of the 25302 has mixed reviews – as they don’t seem to be living up to the reputation their earlier counterparts had for efficient cutting. I feel this is the right direction towards easier, cleaner, hassle-free mowing, but a few improvements could be done on the GreenWorks 25302 Twin Force G-MAX 40V Li-Ion 20-Inch Cordless Lawn Mower.

Hi, Alex K. here. Growing up I remember that my family had one of the best lawns in the neighborhood. Richly green and lush. I did a lot as I grew up in terms of caring and tending for not only my families lawn but also my neighbors. I can say I have years of experience, and I am here to share it with you.
