Can I control it using my iPhone or do I have to actually go outside?

I have a Greenworks mower and love it. If I knew this was the same type as mine I would be tempted to buy this one to have extra batteries but although mine are also 40 volt they say G-Max which I think is a different type than the regular 40v. I definitely think an electric mower is the way to go if you have a small yard.

I made the switch to a cordless electric mower three years ago and I really don't feel the need to nor do I want to go back to a gas mower. I do have a gas tractor to do the larger part of the yard, and I had bought the gas mower intending to only use it to do trim in the areas too small for the tractor but too big for the string trimmer. The quality of cut and ease of use made me decide to cut my entire small front lawn with the electric mower.

On the up side at the end of the season I just fold the mower and put it away, no oil change, gas to drain, and I wait until after the second mowing on the season to service the blade. Maintenance is charge the battery, keep the blade sharp, and blow it off with the leaf blower now and then.

The down side, it is not as quiet as you think, when you are mowing that blade sounds like a big fan, although your neighbors won't really hear it at a distance. Battery is a limiting factor, you are not going to mow a half acre in a single battery, and self propelled models have even less battery life.

Finally a word of caution. Never charge Lithium batteries in a place where the temperature is below 35°F, this will ruin them quicker than any other abuse you can throw at them. You can use them in the cold, you can store them in the cold, but never charge them in the cold. I keep mine on the back porch, but once it goes below 35 the chargers don't get plugged in until it warms up.

I have the 80V set up and the charger actually will not let you charge when it is that cold. I thought my charger or battery was broken but started to charge after moving it inside where it could warm up.

I see in the 'hang vertically' pic that it's missing, once bought a mower in a box and when we got it home no bag, nothing on box said bag not included. Thanks!

Your batteries will be compatible with this model as long as they are G-Max :-)

Although I don't have this brand of cordless electric mower, I highly recommend going electric. Zero maintenance (other than blade sharpening occasionally), no going to the gas station for gas, much quieter, lighter, and no more headaches from the exhaust fumes.

If this was the 80V model, I'd be interested.

I just picked up my first Greenworks products. I have the 24v pole sale and 24v blower. I haven't used them all that much but they work great! I cut half a dozen, or so, limbs with the pole saw and stuck the battery on the charger and it immediately went from red to green indicating that I had barely used and of the battery. So far very happy and will definitely be investing in other Greenworks stuff that use the 24v setup since the batteries are relatively expensive. In fact the pole saw itself cost less than the battery.

Amazon has reviews for different models (included corded) mixed together. Reviews for this specific model aren't stellar, mostly complaining about battery life:

I've been mowing with a corded electric mower and it is great. I'd love to ditch the cord but I worry about battery life.

How much mowing does everyone get from their cordless mowers?

How long until the batteries fail and I need another battery?

I have this model and it cuts great! However...I have the 40 volt 4ah batteries (the gmax larger ones) and my 1/4 acre lot requires almost 2 to finish...of course my technique may be off but just a word of caution for those thinking your gonna mow a big yard with this. Even having to get the extra battery I still would never go back to a gas mower for a small yard again. The lack of dealing with gas and oil is so worth it!

Don't forget cleaning it now and then, a clean motor doesn't overheat as easily.

It says this Greenworks mower has a 70 minute runtime. That is a long time for a battery mower. Definitely worth it for a 70 minute runtime.

I've been very happy with my Greenworks 40V Twin Force mower. Advantage over today's machine is that both battery ports deliver power; no need to switch batteries when the first runs low. Twin Force is really light, but plastic deck instead of steel. No side discharge option, either.

Mowing per charge is highly dependent on grass type & thickness. My whole lot is less than 1/3 acre (incl house, drive, back parking, etc). Front yard is heavy St. Augustine & sometimes takes almost both batteries. Back is a little smaller with pretty thin Zoysia; seems like the mower could cut that all day on a single battery.

This seems like a really good deal compared to Mothership price.

Is the 70 min runtime PER battery, or for both batteries combined?

Good question! Also curious. I would bet it's both batteries. As it would take about that long to cut 1/2 acre.

I have had two Greenworks Mowers... Over the last 6 or 7 years... The batteries last a few years before they need replacing.. The mowers themselves are outstanding.. The one i use to mow my parents house uses both batteries over the course of a mow in the spring when the grass is at its thickest. They have about 1 full acre of grass. Hands down one of the best mowers gas or electric i have ever used..

While the lawnmower at this price is comparable to 21" gas-powered lawnmowers, isn't gas still more cost effective given the cost of replacing two batteries every 2 to 3 years?

That's what I assume as well. I have almost exactly 1/2 acre to mow and would hate to run out of juice with 1 or 2 rows to go!

Hey there, make sure when you log in you use the "Log in with Amazon" button. Then you should see a banner at the top and on the sale page saying you qualify for the free shipping. If you make it to the checkout page and you're still seeing the shipping, simply reload your page. As long as you use the "Login with Amazon" button, it should take the shipping off.

The part I don't like about this particular mower is the "battery storage" . . . sure that is great if you are in the middle of the yard and want to swap out the battery, but otherwise, it adds weight and not needed. I have the 80V Kobalt (which is made by Greenworks) and I have St. Augustine thick grass. The two batteries in that setup will mow a quarter acre. Each batter will last 30 minutes. The kicker here is that the batter only takes 30 minutes to charge . . . but, if the battery is hot, it won't charge, which it is when it comes off the mower, so I have to cool it off before starting the charging. If you had 3 batteries, you'd never need to worry about it. So, things to look at is how fast batteries charge, having storage for the battery on the mower is silly, and how much a replacement cost. Your type of grass will also impact the run time, since the motor runs at the lowest power necessary to meet the minimum RPM's. As you bog it down, the motor spins harder by using more power. I've only ever once killed it by overwhelming it, something I frequently did with a gas mower. I love battery powered mowers now, no problems starting, no gas to pour, oil to change, filters to change, fuel lines rotting and replaced . . .

This is full push; you can get propelled out ther, but something to think about, you are going to chew up the battery even faster with a propelled. You have to power an additional motor to drive the wheels, which means more draw on the battery. Unless you really can't push the mower, you should avoid it. Electric mowers are much lighter than gas, and in this case, don't store the second battery while mowing, that's just dead weight.

Add up the full cost. Fuel for a season, air filter, oil change, spark plugs . . . if you actually follow the maintenance schedule for your mower, you're probably close to break even.

[we use a battery electric mower, a Kobalt which is Lowes brand, 40V model. the house sits on a large corner lot, this mower allows for 2 batteries in it and shifts from one to the other when one is used up..... the most i have had to use is 4 batteries to do the entire lawn and that was when it was very overgrown, normally it goes through 2 and starts on the 3rd. being a kobalt it uses same batteries as many of the power tools so we have 2 chargers and about 8 batteries 4 40V and 4 20V....quiet, i can mow the lawn at 3am without disturbing the neighbors = nice here in texas during the summer. hopefully that helps the nice thing about kobalt is since it is the lowes brand its pretty much a lifetime warrenty... anything goes wrong with the mower we take it to the store and they replace it, no dealing with having to send it off for repair
