EASE OF USE AND MAINTENANCE:
Assembling the unit just takes a couple of minutes as most it comes pre-assembled. You have to only attach the push drive handle to it. The Greenworks MO10B00 is an user friendly mower. To start the machine you need to plug it in using an extension cord. The length of the extension cord should be chosen in accordance with the length of your lawn. It determines the cutting radius of this corded lawn mower. The extension cord does not come along with the unit and has to be purchased separately. Once the machine is connected to an electrical outlet, you can push the start button to instantly start the motor and then engage the handle bar by pulling it close to the handle to set off. Corded lawn mowers often pose a problem if you are not used to dealing with the cord. The cord holder eases this out to some extent.
The Greenworks MO10B00 need little or almost no maintenance. You need to just clean the deck and other parts after every mowing session to prevent the grass clippings from clogging the blades. You may also need to sharpen the blades occasionally for a smoother tag free operation. It does not require extensive oiling nor do you have to change air filters or spark plugs.
CUTTING QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE:
The 17” plastic cutting deck with sharp steel blades are powered by a 10amp motor which provides enough power so that even tough grass can be handles with ease. The 17” deck means that the machine will actually need fewer passes to get the job done and will require less time to do it. Long grass may need more than a single pass but if you maintain your yard regularly then this will not pose any problem altogether.
The height of the deck can be easily adjusted between 5/8” and 2-5/8” manually with the help of a small lever and so you can have an uniform cut. The grass clipping that are being cut can either be mulched further to finer pieces and left in the field for easy decomposition. This can be done by attaching the mulch plug below the rear flap. Or else you can attach the removable grass catcher bag to the unit and collect them in the bag for disposal at a later stage.
There are no additional safety features like a safety switch or a key but this Greenworks MO10B00 unit cannot be operated unless it’s plugged in to an electrical outlet which in itself acts like a safety feature. But the absence of an additional safety feature can be treated by some as a disadvantage in this model. Apart from this it does not emit any harmful gasses in the environment and does not make any loud noise thereby making it feasible for you to continue operations even during the evening or night without disturbing your neighbours.
