As usual, warranty is not valid for routine maintenance items normal wear/tear, and deterioration of the exterior finish.

Common Greenworks Lawn Mowers Problems & Customer Complaints

  • Unsharp Blades: Like many other brands, most of the blades that come with GreenWorks mowers are not super sharp. This may be for safety concern. Anyways, you can sharpen blades on your mowers before ever using it once!
  • Auto throttling: When mowing thinner grass, the mower will idle down a bit. This saves power, but once it hits the thicker grass it has to ramp up for a few feet to get going full throttle to handle the tougher areas of your lawn. If your lawn grows at exactly the same pace then this is not an issue, but that is the exception and not the rule when it comes to turf.

Like any brand, these machines also have some little issues. However, many of their models are highly rated in my overall Best Walk Behind Lawn Mowers as in general they are awesome mowers. Have you had good luck with your mower or has yours been a pain in the grass?

As Always, happy Mowing!
