If you’re looking for the best electric lawn mower for small yards, and don’t mind being tethered to a cable, the Greenwork 25022 can be your new best friend. Its wide cutting deck will reduce the time spent mowing, while still being compact enough that it isn’t a hassle to handle.

Why We Like It – Greenworks 25022

The Greenworks 25022 Electric Lawn Mower is a compact workhorse thanks to its 12 amp motor, wide cutting deck, and access to desired features, like its 3-in-1 nature.

  • 20-inch cutting deck cuts large swaths of grass
  • 3-in-1; can mulch, side discharge, and collect
  • Solid performance for its price
  • It’s a corded lawn mower
  • Rear bag fills up fairly quickly


The Greenworks 25022 Corded Electric Lawn Mower is surprisingly powerful compared to more expensive electric mowers, even gas mowers—not to mention feature rich. This is partly because of its 12 amp motor and 20-inch cutting deck, capable of cutting large swaths of grass with accuracy and efficiency. Compare this with the Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO or American Lawn Mower 50514, which both have a cutting deck 6 inches smaller (14 inches). You’ll be mowing nearly twice as long with such a smaller cutting path.


The Greenworks 25022 Amp Corded Lawn Mower is made easy to use. To power it on, simply use the push button. Altering the height adjustment is just as easy with a single lever system for 7 different cutting heights located near the rear wheels. Since it’s a 3-in-1, switch between side discharge, mulch, or collect grass clippings using its rear bagging. However, the rear bag is a bit on the small side.

Unfortunately, this is a corded lawn mower, forcing you to be tethered to a power cord, and an extension cord isn’t included. It’s frustrating to deal with, requiring constant adjustment. If you want cordless, go with its cousin, the Greenworks 25322.


All things considered, the Greenworks 25022 Electric Corded Lawn Mower has pretty good value, even though we considered its corded nature a negative in our lawn mower review. It’s feature reach being a 3-in-1, and has several height adjustments available. It’s compact in size to begin with, but you can shrink its size further thanks to the handlebars being foldable, which makes storing it a breeze. The Greeworks 25022’s 20-inch steel deck makes wide paths, making short work of your yard in no time. When we review Greenworks products, we always notice a trend of low cost, but high value.

Greenworks 25022 Wrap Up

The Greenworks 25022 makes its home with small lawns. Its wide 20-inch cutting deck makes mowing way easy, and is feature rich being a 3-in-1. While it is corded and its rear bag fills fairly quickly, it isn’t much of a problem with smaller yards. What you get in return more than makes up for it—especially when considering its price.
