husqvarna lawn mower

Husqvarna is a Swedish company that has been churning out ridiculously good tools for centuries now. If you ever come across a lawnmower made by Gardena or Weed-Eater, thank Husqvarna still, as the latter owns the former brands. Talk about the expansion of business! 1995 has to be the year where things changed tremendously in the favor of this brand as it introduced state of the art robotic lawnmowers. As of now, this brand dabbles in and produces almost every type of lawn mower that you can think of. Whether it is the push-reel mower or the walk-behind ones, robotic or riding, the brand has made a name for itself in almost all the categories of lawnmowers. The brand believes in the philosophy of managing its business through one-stop-stations. You don’t have to run around for accessories and other care products like a headless chicken, Husqvarna got you covered! Also, there is a great range of products available, speaking from a financial perspective. Not everyone has the same purchasing potential and the brand values that. However, quality remains constant. No compromises on that! What is more, their accessory parts are never out of stock. You might need a replacement for some part in case you damage the lawnmower by some accident. Husqvarna has got you all covered in case of such an event!

Here is a brand that has been popular for its home accessories and tools for a long time, but has dominated the grass-trimmer markets as well. Lawnmowers are not the only garden-care tool that is sold by this brand, plenty of lawn care products are on sale at Craftsman. But we will stick with the lawn movers only in this discussion, for the simple reason of keeping things simple. The range of lawnmowers that is available at Craftsman is ideal for both commercial and residential purposes. But what are the types of lawnmowers that are available at Craftsman? Well, there are riding, self-propelled, cordless push types available, to name a few. Since Craftsman is a US-based brand, you don’t have to ring or mail overseas for trifling issues such as demand for spare parts.

#2. Craftsman M105 140cc 21-Inch 3-in-1 Gas Powered Push Lawn Mower

This Craftsman lawn mower comes with one bagger and engine oil. But what interests us more is the 3in1 role this lawn mower has to offer in your lawn. This grass trimmer comes with side discharge, rear discharge, and mulching. The versatility is a stamp on innovativeness that Craftsman is famous for! 


#3. Troy-Bilt

troy-bilt lawn mower

Another fascinating brand joins this elite group of brands. MTD Consumer Group owns this company that has maintained a constant presence in the market since the late 1930s. You can find this brand’s lawn mowers in a local store or you can order one online as well. But the question is, WHY should you order it in the first place? Well, for one, this brand offers a tremendous bit of variety. If you need a riding, standing, or walk-behind lawnmower, Troy-Bilt has got what you need. Oh, and there are edgers available at Troy-Bilt as well if you are interested in those. Variety is one thing, but excellent customer care is also something that we value a lot.

#4. Snapper

snapper lawn mower

This brand can be deemed as a proper trendsetter in the world of lawnmowers. This was the brand that introduced self-propelled lawn mowers in the market. It was a revolutionary development, we can tell you that many folks! Anyhow, coming towards the hallmark features of this brand that is owned by Briggs and Stratton, it produces a series of versatile lawnmowers and other lawn care products. It has been in the business since the last decade of the 19th century, which speaks a lot about the experience and skill that is reflected in this brand’s products as well. You can check out their trimmers as well, but for now, we will limit ourselves to lawn mowers only. You must be wondering about the types of lawnmowers that are on offer. Well, the brand is considered a bit of an authority when it comes to pushing mowers, riding mowers, ZTR, and a few other types of lawnmowers.

#5. EGO Power Plus

ego lawn mower

Can we take the liberty of pausing you here for a moment and clarify something? We have not listed these brands in terms of their popularity. No, this is not some sort of ranking competition that we have organized. All these brands are reputable and trustworthy. Now, let us have an overview of this lawnmower brand that claims to be number one in the market!   

The main niche in which this company dabbles is electric lawnmowers. Oh, and certain other tools as well. The quality that is on display in the EGO Power Plus lawn mowers is as good as any other competitor’s products. This is a bit surprising since EGO Power Plus has been in this business for only three decades. Want to know something even more staggering?

And now, we are going to mention the type of lawn mowers you can expect at the EGO Power Plus.

So many things to like about this product, but we will talk about the multi-blade system only since we are a bit cramped for space and time. The effectiveness of this mowing system is as good as any gas lawn mower in the market. Runtime is 60 minutes for this battery-operated lawnmower. 

#2. EGO Power+ LM2100 21-Inch 56-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Lawn Mower

The six height adjustments that this lawnmower offers add more to its profile value, which is already in the limelight courtesy of features such as LED headlights, easy push buttons, and a 3in1 mowing mechanism.


#6. American Lawn Mower

american lawn mower

This is a brand that has made a name for itself all over the world and has been churning out quality lawn mowers since the 1890s. We do hope that our obsession with century-old brands isn’t getting a bit annoying for you! We have selected only the best for you, and the best usually has more experience than others. Anyhow, coming back to the American Lawn Mower here is a brand with a wide chain of operations. You will find their outlets being managed by giant corporations such as Amazon, Ace, and Home Depot, etc. In 1936, for the first time, push-reel mowers were introduced by this company. To this date, these mowers are bringing more profits to the company than their other merchandise. Apart from these, the brand manufactures corded lawnmowers as well. 

Best Known For

This lawnmower is available in shades of red, but looks are not why we have selected this model from American Lawn Mower. Versatility in style and the four-blade reel that offers maximum maneuverability are the actual reasons why we fell for this lawnmower out of the many from this brand.

#2. American Lawn Mower Company 50514 14-Inch 11-Amp Corded Electric Lawn Mower 

Let us enlist the key features of this product briefly before we jump to the next brand. A powerful 11-Amp motor, 14” cutting width, and five height adjustments. Enough reasons for us to buy this beauty in black, but what about you? 


#7. WORX

worx lawn mower

It has surfaced in the later stages of this discussion, but WORX houses some of the premium quality lawn mowers that you are likely to come across in your quest for the best brands. It is not even two decades old a brand, and yet, the consistent manner in which it has churned out quality has put it right there at the top. 

The venture started in China but made its presence felt in the US in the same year. WORX is famous for both lines of mowers i.e. cordless and corded. But speaking more specifically, the focus is more on residential lawnmowers. 

Best Known For

Which features make a WORX lawn mower a better choice than products from other brands? Let us share with you our findings.

This black shaded WORX lawn mower comes with two 20V batteries and a promise that this lawn mower will be your companion for a long time. You can adjust the cut-height according to your desire, all that you have to do is press a lever. One more thing that we would like to mention here about this product is that it is smart. Torque for cutting is generated in a quantity that is dependent on the demand only. 

#2. Worx WR140 Landroid M 20V Power Share Robotic Lawn Mower

This is a fully automated lawn mower from WORX that has enough brains to cut up ¼ acres of lawn all by itself. Customization is also a key feature of this product from WORX. 


#8. Honda

honda lawn mower

In the minds of many, Honda produces motorbikes only. This is sheer ignorance and nothing else. Lawnmowers from Honda have dominated the major markets all around the world ever since the 1980s. If you have some spare time sometimes, you should check out the range of lawn care products Honda has got all lined up for you. But for the sake of this discussion, we will stick with lawn mowers only. The first question is always about the types. So to answer that, Honda is manufacturing a good string of series and commercial lawn mowers that are available in both styles i.e. push-behind and robotic. The main reason for the success of lawnmowers launched by Honda is the powerful engine that runs their machinery. But of course, there are other reasons as well which make Honda a special brand. 

Best Known For

Let us have a look at those reasons now. 

1- Creative thought process that is reflected in their products. 

2- Ecologically friendly products 

3- Lawnmowers that do not consume too much power/fuel 

4- Excellent customer care service 

5-Surprises. You can always expect Honda to surprise you with its various customer-friendly schemes

Two popular models

We have made some tall claims about Honda’s lawnmowers. It is time we back them up with proofs.

#1. Honda’s HRX217VKA lawn mower 

Featuring a 4in1 Versamow system, which promises excellent bag, discharge, leaf shred, and mulching, this is one of the finest lawn mowers to come out from Honda yet. Operated on a powerful engine, here is a lawnmower that will get tongues talking in your neighborhood. Such is the class! 

#2. Honda’s HRX217VLA lawn mower 

In terms of specifications, this one is a ditto copy of the lawnmower that we just discussed. It is the design that caught our eye, its innovativeness is something that you should check out as well. 


#9. Makita

makita lawn mower

Here is yet another brand that has been in this business for over a century now. It specializes in two types of lawnmowers. These are electric and petrol-fueled lawnmowers. We wondered, and we think you should ask this question too, how did the brand survive for a century? And the answer lies in immaculate craftsmanship and the ingeniousness with which these lawnmowers are structurally manufactured. These mowers are better suited for residential purposes for the simple fact that their run time is just not good enough for commercial use. But that does not affect their popularity though. Giant retailers like Amazon love to stock and sell Makita lawn mowers at the first chance. 

Best Known For

What are the reasons which make this brand a superior one as compared to other ones? This is being said with a special reference to the residential lawnmowers, which Makita seems to be cashing on big time. Well, our search revealed that customers fall for Makita lawn mowers because of:

  1. Extremely powerful apparatus 
  2. Consistent efforts made to improve the existing line of products 
  3. Warranties like no one else in this business 
  4. Affordability 

Two popular models

Many great products from Makita have made their way into the market. However, it is the following two that are by far the best ones, according to us.

#1. Makita XML02Z 18V X2 (36V) LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 17″ Lawn Mower

The run time for this lawnmower is about 30 minutes, which is not enough for a big lawn, frankly speaking. However, the 17’ cutting path width and the 3600 RPM at which this machine slashes through the grass make up for any grievances that we might have had.

#2. Makita XML02Z 18-Volt X2 (36V) LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 17 inch Walk-behind Lawn Mower

Wow, that product name told you a lot, no? Anyhow, apart from these obvious specs, you should know that the lawnmower comes with an integrated LED battery charging level, which helps you keep an eye on things. Oh, and the run time is 30 minutes in this case as well. 


#10. Sun Joe

sun joe lawn mower

You might get a bit confused if you come across a product named Snow Joe. Is there a link between Sun Joe and Snow Joe? Of course there. The former owns the latter. And a few other brands. But let us stick with the Sun Joe for now, and see why it has earned the trust of its customers, big time. Well, one would guess that this trust was largely built because of the initiatives such as Call to Recycle. Via these programs, customers are encouraged to dump old lawnmowers in an ecologically friendly manner. Also, the range of products is quite fascinating as well. Folks, we are talking about cordless, corded, electric, hybrid, and manual lawnmowers to name a few categories that are being manufactured at Sun Joe. That is enough to catch anyone’s eye!  

Best Known For

Are there any other reasons for this brand’s higher-than-average market value? We did some digging and came up with a list of possible factors. Interested in having a sneak peek? 

  1. Extremely affordable products 
  2. Innovative ideas that make the customer’s life easy 
  3. Ecology friendly initiatives, which show that the brand is thinking about the greater good as well
  4. Versatile range of products  

Two popular models

Here are the best Sun Joe lawn mowers available in the market as of now. 

#1. Sun Joe MJ408E-PRO Electric Lawn Mower

This is a corded electric lawn mower with the specs that give us a clue why Sun Joe dominates the market. This yellow blackish mower needs no special maintenance, comes with a sharp 20-inch blade and a grass catcher to keep the mowing session neat and spruce. 

#2. Sun Joe MJ403E Mow Joe 17-Inch 13-Amp Electric Lawn Mower

This is a powerful tool to have at your disposal on your lawn. It can run and cut through a 17-inch path without much fuss. Then, since this mower offers both mulching and mowing services, you can benefit from it dually. And lastly, it comes with a grass collector bag as well. 


Conclusion

Well, folks, that would be all for now. We wish we could talk a bit more about the qualitative and quantitative aspects which make a lawnmower brand popular. The secret recipe of success, if you will have it that way! But despite the limited space and time, we have revealed the key ingredients anyway. 

All that you have got to do is keep these in mind as you set out on your quest for the best lawn mower in the market. And you will see we were right! A quality product always has the tag of the best brand in the market!
