4 Reasons to Choose a Corded Lawn Mower Over Cordless

Electric lawnmowers are ideal for residential use, but many homeowners struggle to decide between cordless mowers and corded mowers. While cordless mowers run from battery packs, corded mowers are plugged into an outlet. While they both offer their own benefits and drawbacks, many homeowners will find that corded mowers are the best fit for their needs.

Here are just four reasons why.  

1. Constant Power Supply

Probably the most compelling reason to choose a corded mower over a cordless mower is that you're never going to run out of power. The size of most yards means you'll always be close enough to an outlet. As such, all you'll need to do is plug your mower in to ensure a constant supply of power. In contrast, a cordless mower may run out of battery when you've only covered half your lawn, especially if you forget to charge it between sessions. When that happens, you'll have to wait around for the battery to charge up.  

2. No Battery Degradation

Even if your lawnmower doesn't ever actually run out of battery, the battery is still going to wear down over time. This means it will lose its ability to hold a charge, so you'll eventually notice your mower struggling to cover the distance it used to or provide the same level of power. While you can replace the battery, this can be both inconvenient and costly. However, it isn't an issue you'll face with a corded lawnmower since there is no battery to wear down.

3. Lightweight

The battery packs used in cordless lawnmowers are heavy, so cordless mowers are generally much heavier than corded ones. That means pushing a corded mower around your lawn is going to require much less effort, especially if you need to go up and down slopes. Corded mowers are also easier to manoeuvre around obstacles and easier to transport. This all means that corded mowers are particularly recommended for older users, but any user is going to appreciate how easy and effortless they make it to keep a lawn looking its best.

4. Low Cost

Battery packs aren't just heavy, they're also expensive. The power cables used by corded lawn mowers cost much less than the powerful batteries required for cordless mowers, so you'll generally spend significantly less on a corded mower. In fact, corded mowers often cost around half the price of cordless mowers.
