Greenworks 25022 Features and Specifications
When it arrives, Greenworks 25022 must be assembled, which can be done rather quickly. Since this is a lawn mower and its operation includes fast spinning blade, before the very first use, actually before assembly, be sure to read the manual thoroughly, to get accustomed to your new lawn mower - Greenworks 25022 is easy to set up, use and maintain lawn mower, but better be safe than sorry.
Greenworks 25022 is powered using 120V/60 Hz and during operation it draws 12 Amps. Motor is strong for 20 inches (50.8 cm) cutting path and it has no issues with toughest grass and even smaller/thinner branches (branches should be avoided!) as long as the blades are sharp.
No load speed of the blades is 3600 rpm (60 rotations per second), providing clean and uniform cutting.
Unit weighs 56 pounds (25.4 kg) due to the use of steel (steel deck) in its construction - there are similar units that weigh less, but they are made of plastic and not so sturdy.
Wide wheels decrease the pressure on the grass and their size (front wheels 7 inches/17.8 cm, rear wheels 10 inches/25.4 cm) ensure good maneuverability and traversing regardless of the terrain.
Greenworks 25022 features adjustable height adjustment system with 7 different heights, ranging from 1 1/2 and 3 3/4 inches (3.8 - 9.5 cm). Height adjustment can be done quickly using height adjustment lever.
Greenworks 25022 controls are very simple, but ensure safety during operation. To turn on the unit, press start/power button and pull bail switch up. To stop the unit, simply release the bail switch.
Greenworks 25022 lawn mower also features onboard circuit breaker, designed to protect supply circuit from short-circuits due to the overloads.
Power controls are positioned on the handle, which can be folded when storing the unit.
Since this is corded electric lawn mower, it comes with pigtail power cable, requiring the user to have proper power extension cord. Since Greenworks 25022 requires 12 Amps, extension cord should be able to support at least 15 Amps over longer period of time. Such power cord should also be very visible, with UV and mechanically resistant coating - for short, go for 12 or 10 Gauge extension cords.
Note: thicker cables are more energy efficient, but they are also harder to manipulate and pull along.
Unit features three basic functions when mowing the lawn: mulch, side discharge or storing the grass clippings into the rear bag.
When Greenworks 25022 arrives, package contains: lawn mower, mulch plug, grass catcher bag, side discharge chute and manual.
Greenworks 25022 comes with 4 year warranty, which is excellent warranty for non-commercial lawn mowers in this price range.
Long Story Short: if you are looking for a zero CO2 emission, low noise lawn mower and you prefer corded over cordless lawn mowers due to their constant and dependable power and strength, consider this unit - it has wide enough cutting deck to be able to mow relatively large area quickly, but it is still compact enough to be rather maneuverable and easy to handle, it has large wheels, all three basic lawn mower functions, strong motor etc.
