Earthwise 50118 Lawn Mower

The Earthwise 50118 18-Inch 12 amp Electric Side Discharge/Mulching Lawn Mower is a no gas, no pull start, no problem mower that comes without all of the fuss of maintenance of its gas powered cousins.

Some of the obvious reasons of choosing an electric mower is the fact that you can get the performance and power of a gas-guzzling, earth polluting mower that’s cleaner, lighter, quieter and easier to use.

This Earthwise machine is wonderful in many other ways as well, such as the 1-lever height control, to the no-tool assembly, all the way to the easy push button starting mechanism. The twelve-amp system provides all the power you can possibly need, and even performs well on higher, more difficult lawns.

So easy to control, you can go from side discharge to mulch with less hassle than you can with other electric mowers.

The single lever control for height goes from one and one half to four inches, easy rolling composite wheels that are seven inches that handles rough terrain without a problem and a comfortable handle that is V-shaped with a cushion grip and operates with a soft touch. The cord is 18’’ and the handle has a safety blade control.

You can easily assemble this masterpiece without any tools whatsoever.

Get the best of both worlds with a corded electric lawn mower from Earthwise! Designed for saving you time, it uses the 18-inch cutting path and steel mower deck that is heavy duty so that you can continue with an efficient long-lasting performance. On top of all of the safety, cost cutting and convenience mechanisms, you can fold the handle down to store your lawnmower in the tightest of spaces.

The Earthwise 50118 18-Inch 12 amp Electric Side Discharge/Mulching Lawn Mower weighs just 48 pounds and comes with the lawn mower, handle, wheels, side discharge chute and a mulching plug in the box. It is backed by a 2-year limited warranty from the manufacturer.

Relatively light and easy to push – at only 48 pounds, this is a simple mower to use.

Easy assembly for such a powerful machine, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to put this together.

Cuts grass really well – for a corded mower, this does the trick just fine.

Great at height adjustment – multiple levels to use, this is wonderfully simple.

No fumes, no gas, no emissions – throw your gas mower away once you get this one, does the same without the harmful chemicals discharged.

Don’t let grass get too tall – it will probably take more than one pass if that happens, or it will be more difficult to push if it’s too high.

Cord is a drawback – you have to be careful on how you maneuver on a mower with a cord.
