In this article I will be going through our selection of cordless lawn mowers to help you decide the best cordless lawn mower for you! At ITS our tool experts go above and beyond to ensure the tools we supply are the best available.

Should You Choose A Cordless Lawn Mower?

Choosing a lawn mower can be a bit of a pain, especially with so many choices. Do you want a corded lawn mower? A cordless lawn mower? or will petrol take your fancy? If you already have a battery from one of the key brands, you’re halfway there, so why not give cordless a chance.

  • With the cost of petrol prices rising year on year cordless tools are becoming more and more attractive in the garden.
  • Cordless garden power tools are already performing at the same level as petrol tools so you won’t see a loss in performance.
  • Cordless lawn mowers will in general be lighter as a battery is generally lighter than a lawnmower full of petrol
  • Petrol lawn mowers create fumes which are harmful to you and the environment.
