electric lawn mowers – Sun Joe Ion16LM 2017

While best known for its electric snow blowers, Snow Joe has branched out to create a lightweight, cordless electric mower, the Sun Joe iON16LM. This lightweight electric mower cuts your grass in efficient 16-inch swaths, taking little time to get your yard trimmed.


The battery life for this electric mower can last up to 40 minutes, depending on the length of the grass and how hard the motor has to work to cut it. The best electric lawn mowers can last up to an hour, but the Sun Joe battery is perfect for lawns that are 1/4 acre or under that are consistently maintained.

One of the best things about the removable lithium-ion battery is that it only takes 30 minutes to recharge. In addition to being ultralight, this is a great advantage that lithium-ion batteries have over traditional lead-acid batteries, which take much longer to charge.

You can adjust this mower to six height positions, letting you cut your grass to a low height of 1.18 inches up to 3.15 inches. The mower may have a hard time with grass over 8 inches long, as most mowers will, but the Snow Joe works well on regularly maintained lawns and has plenty of charge to handle the extra growth if you happen to skip a few weeks.

Due to its lightweight battery, the Sun Joe cordless lawn mower only weighs 37 pounds. For a mower that is not self-propelled, the lighter weight makes it easier to maneuver around trees and other obstacles with a full bag of grass clippings.

The Sun Joe cordless mower is covered by a two-year limited warranty, providing service or parts for manufacturing defects. There are no service centers or authorized repair technicians outside of Snow Joe, but if you ever have a problem or concern with the machine, you can contact the company directly by email or phone. If you ever lose your manual, you can download it from the Sun Joe website and order parts such as additional batteries or chargers.

If you are looking for an eco-friendly cordless lawn mower to take care of your smaller lawn, then the Sun Joe iON16LM is an acceptable choice. It is lightweight, cuts efficiently and charges quickly. If you don’t need a self-propelled mower, then it could be the right option for your yard.
