Maintaining a freshly cut lawn is more than just being a good homeowner — it’s a social status of sorts. You don’t want to be the house on the block with knee-high grass, and you certainly don’t want to have your neighbors knocking on your door, demanding you to cut it. So why not just, you know, mow your lawn? It might seem like a daunting task to those who don’t enjoy lawn work, but with the right mower, it could actually be quite an enjoyable experience. If you’re not looking to spend a pretty penny on an expensive riding lawnmower, take a look at some of these inexpensive traditional lawnmowers instead.

Best Lawnmower Under $100

For those who are REALLY not trying to spend a lot of money, this 4-Blade Push Reel Lawn Mower from the American Lawn Mower Company should do the trick. With a 14″ cutting width, four-blade ball bearing reel, and 8.5″ composite wheels, this thing is durable, easy-to-use, and most of all, effective. It’s perfect for someone with a smaller lawn, and it’s environmentally friendly, considering it doesn’t require and gas. And sure, it’s neither fancy, nor technologically advanced, but this old school lawnmower will still get the job done.

Best Value Lawnmower

Obviously, an antiquated push lawnmower isn’t for everybody. We get that. If you want something that’s still of great value and a little more, err, technically advanced, this 12 Amp Corded Electric Lawn Mower from Greenworks should do the trick. Complete with a solid 12 amp motor, 20-inch steel deck, and seven-position height adjustment, this lawnmower is powerful, durable, and most of all, highly effective. It’s also pretty versatile, thanks to its 3-1 mulching, side discharge, and rear bag features. The push-to-start button is also great for those who otherwise might lack the strength to get a classic pull-string lawnmower started.  All in all, this is a great machine for a fantastic price. 

Best Cordless Lawnmower

Last but not least, we have another product from Greenworks — the 40V Cordless Lawn Mower. As opposed to a traditional corded lawnmower, this model comes with a powerful G-MAX 40V 4Ah Li-Ion battery, capable of powering multiple outdoor tools. Thanks to its five-position height adjustment, this lawnmower possesses a cutting height range from 1-1/4 inch to 3-3/8-inch, depending on the environment you’re cutting grass in. Its 16-inch cutting deck also makes it great for small yards, as it covers a lot of ground. If you’re looking for a state of the art, relatively inexpensive lawnmower, this is the way to go.
