Earthwise 20 Inch Electric 3-in-1 Lawn Mower (12 Amp)
by Darren Kemetko
With plenty of experience working with lawnmowers for over three decades (I run a small lawnmowing outfit), I knew that the Earthwise mower would be a good purchase.
It is manufactured by the American Lawn Mower Company who have been manufacturing mowers for over a century, which should provide some peace of mind to those who are looking for a reliable mower.
I use both small hand mowers and larger ride-ons and this Earthwise model is definitely near the top of the mid-size mowers I have used recently.
The primary draw of this mower is its ease of use and ultimate efficiency. The comfort of the grip is something I noticed right away - a feature which is sadly missing from competitor mowers. On top of this, it was easy to operate and stow when I was finished using it - just fold the handle in with a click.
Whilst the Earthwise is definitely a heavy beast, this is because of its large 20-inch base that allows a greater surface area of grass to be cut with each push - a real timesaver.
Easily the best features of the Earthwise, though, are the disposal chutes. Available to users are either side disposal chutes or a back loaded bag that collects offcuts. Whilst this is pretty standard on good mowers, the Earthwise makes it a breeze to switch between the two to suit individual needs.
The unit is a bit pricey but definitely worth the extra money for buyers looking to keep their mowers for a few good years rather than replace every year. Highly recommended.
