As we approach the cooler winter months, there are many people in the United States not looking forward to the cold. The mix of frozen rain, cold temperatures and the dreaded snow fall might be enough for some to worry about whether they will make it through the day. But, with the snowfall comes one thing that can’t be avoided.

Shoveling the driveway.

Yes, some people are very old fashioned and still like to use the good ol’ snow shovel. But, you’re not one of those types of people if you’re reading this article. You’re the type of person that likes to get things done, not mess around, and go on about your day.

We’re going to cover what the market says is the best electric snow blower from the specifications to the brands and beyond. From all of the snow blowers, you’re sure to find one that fits your needs!

Want to jump right to the product reviews?

First off, moving to electric equipment has been a huge jump for more than just me! This year we switched over to the Greenworks 40V Electric Mower and we aren’t not looking back. It has been a great benefit to the family and to actually get more done outside without worrying about worrying about gas, oil, and all the other maintenance has been wonderful.

What’s The Benefit of an Electric Snow Blower vs. Gas?

Using an electric snow blower is much more lightweight and requires a lot less maintenance than a traditional gas blower. You don’t have to worry about running the engine dry, changing the oil, or swapping the spark plug.

They are typically less costly to operate and don’t require things like fuel stabilizer or someone to service the engine on a regular basis. There’s also no cord to pull for starting — just use a button to start it and let go when you’re finished.

Some users claim that the electric snow blower (in general) doesn’t quite match up to the gas counterpart. But, manufacturers like Greenworks now have the 80V batteries which are an industry first in using electric technology of the future.

How to Determine the Best Electric Snow Blower?

There are a variety of factors that some talk about in order to see which snow blower is the best for your money. But, most electric blowers out there have the same type of factors that come into play. What are they?

  • How many volts are the battery?
  • What is the runtime on a single battery charge?
  • Is it a one-stage or two-stage system?
  • How many amps is the motor?

The above are only some of the questions when trying to determine the best electric snow blower. We’ll also take a look at the pound capacity of snow it can move. Also, for these items, it’s more about the features and less about if the blower has a cord or not.

Worx WG650: Adjustable Height Electric Snow Blower/Thrower


  • 30-feet Throw Distance
  • Quick Clams Handlebar Adjustment
  • Collapsible Handlebars
  • 180-degree Adjustable Chute


  • Corded
  • Cord Sold Separate

[thrive_split_button left_color=”orange” right_color=”blue” left_text=”Shop Amazon” right_text=”Find on Walmart” left_link=”” right_link=”″]

The Worx WG650 Electric Snow Blower is a great choice if you’re looking for a lightweight and affordable snow blower. You’ll be able to adjust the handles with three different height settings to help you make the best of your time in the snow.

If you’re in need of clearing walkways, sidewalks, or driveways, then this is going to be perfect. You’ll have the opportunity to get all the way down to the pavement and move snow up to 30 feet! It seems like this is a bit more fun than shoveling snow.

Another cool feature about this electric snow blower is that you can hang it on a wall if you’re looking to save some space (or don’t have the space to spare) with it’s low weight.

Some of the more detailed specifications include a 13-amp electric motor, a steel auger that boasts rubber tips for durability, and the ability to clear a space of up to 18 inches wide/10 inches deep.

There’s an oversized chute that will rotate 180 degrees in case you need to shoot the snow in the opposite direction. This also makes it easier to move around when you’re using those [easyazon_link identifier=”B00Z8MGQI0″ locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”lawnaholic-20″]heavy winter gloves[/easyazon_link].

*Important to note: the Worx WG650 does not come with a power cable. It must be purchased separately.

Snow Joe SJ623E: Ultra 18″ 15-Amp Electric Snow Blower with Light


  • 15-amp (instead of 13-amp)
  • Comes with light kit
  • Included chute clean-out tool


  • Corded
  • Does not come with cord

You don’t have to worry about power with this beast! You can make your job much easier and get even more done with the benefit of a more powerful motor. The Snow Joe SJ623E comes with a 15-amp motor versus a 13-amp motor giving you even more power to push the snow in front of you.

Another great benefit of this Snow Joe is that you’ll have the ability to see much better since it comes with a halogen light for those early morning snow drifts. The bulb itself is 20 watts.

It’s got a our blade rotor that is made of heavy-grade steel to force its way right through about 10 inches of snow. Near the bottom of the electric blower there’s a scraper blade that clears and scrapes the snow with no damage to your sidewalk or area you’re working in.

This model is perfect for using in mid-to-larger size areas including driveways, patio areas and sidewalks. You’ll be able to throw snow about 25 feet versus the Worx competition.

Greenworks 2600502 Corded Snow Thrower (No Light Kit)


  • Maintenance-Free
  • Compact Design
  • Quiet Electric Motor
  • 7-inch wheels
  • 20″ Clearing Width
  • 10″ Clearing Depth (vs. typical 8″)


  • Corded
  • 20-feet Discharge
  • Does not come with cord

I’m a big fan of the Greenworks brand given that you can use all of their equipment with the use of their batteries that come with some of their tools. However, for this model — the Greenworks 2600502 snow thrower — it is corded.

This may provide to be a benefit in some way due to the fact that you will virtually never run out of juice! I’m assuming that you’ve paid your electric bill! But, in case you want to see the other options offered, have a look at some of the features.

You’ll still be getting a 13-amp motor which works very similar as a gas alternative. For many of the snow blowers, they have an 18″ clearing width, and for this you’ll be able to clear up to a 20″ path. Hey, two inches can make a long-term difference!

It’s a more compact design to help for storing when the thrower is not in use and also runs with a quieter motor. You’ll be happy if you decide to start throwing snow at 6am so you don’t have to worry about waking the neighbors.

This Greenworks model also offers the advantage of the 180 degree directional chute to allow rotating to throw snow in the opposite direction. There’s a 10″ clearing depth (again, a two inch difference) that is more than some of the other models.

Quick thoughts on the Greenworks Corded Snow Thrower
If you don’t care about the cord, you’ll benefit from this model and it can clear more of a path than the other competitors.

Summary & Thoughts About Snow Blowers

Moving to an electric society is really upon us. There are many pieces of equipment that now have the power of gas and are true alternatives to helping the earth. Snow blowers are no exception. There will continue to be even more electric tools for us to use and whether it’s winter, spring, summer, or fall, hopefully we embrace the new age of technology.

If you’re really big about saving time and want a clean looking driveway, patio, or even sidewalk, an electric snow blower is going to be your best bet. You can save the strenuous back exercises and clear your drive. This is especially helpful if you get a lot of snow and have to return back to clear the area every hour or two.

I hope you found value in this review!

Apparently, the way your lawn is taken care of shows how much of an "artist" you might be. Does this sound familiar to you? If not, just read ahead. Otherwise, you might re-consider the time you put into your yard and put into reading a book or something. Kidding.

This review goes over the Worx Landroid M - a robotic lawn mower that claims to be different from the pack in the sense that it uses artificial intelligence to go over the yard. Is it really the most affordable and the best? Let's find out.

If you'd like to check out reviews on Amazon, you can find them here.

Worx Landroid | A Quick Overview Of The Mower

What Is The Worx Landroid?

This robot lawn mower claims to be the 'easiest set up' out of others on the market simply because you are suppose to be able to remove it from the box and put it to work right away.

The model we're going talk about in this review is the Worx Landroid M. 

How Does This Compare To Other Robotic Mowers?

One of the biggest benefits this mower has is that it's [more] budget friendly than some of the other brands on the market. Although it's not a remote control lawn mower like the Robomow, it's still got a major advantage here.

Here's the deal:

People are looking for a robotic mower to take time for other things like landscaping, keeping their lawn gnomes in check, and in general - entertainment. For these people (and this may be you), there's not always an unlimited supply of money in the bank. Plus, it's a big deal that you might actually get a lawn mower that cuts the grass for you.

Let's take a look at some of what the Worx Landroid has to offer.

Does This Worx Mower Have An App?

Yes, there's an app for this. And, I have to admit that I'm not as thrilled with this one simply because it doesn't have the option to drive it around the yard like the Robomow. This may not be a deal breaker for you and that's okay. Keep in mind, this is designed to pull out of the box, place it onto your lawn and let it go to work.

Major Things To Consider:

Similar to the other reviews on the site, below are some of the major factors you might consider when looking into this mower. It's important to compare and differentiate this model from the others.

Maximum Lawn Size

Since we're only looking at one model, the chart beneath here is pretty self-explanatory. The Landroid cuts a yard up to 1/4 acre.

A quick visual for the cutting area:

Landroid M

Max 1/4 acre

There are some other factors that may determine how far it's going to make it including the type of grass and how fast it grows, how sharp the blades are, humidity (believe it or not), the temperature, and what else is on your lawn.

Important to note: if it tends to be hotter in your area, the mower might charge a little slower rate. Also, the less debris it has to work around, the less energy it uses.

Noise Levels

In case you're thinking about having this cut your grass at night, you might be wondering how loud it is and whether or not you can pass having your neighbors wake up and wonder about your mysterious low-level overnight grass cutting adventure.

Look at the differences with some other top model brands:


57-60 db(A)


67-74 db(A)

Worx Landroid

57 db(A)

Cutting Diameter and Height

The size of the mower seems to be a little on the smaller size with only a 7" mowing capability. Now, compared to it's counterparts with widths of up to 22", this might be a tremendous disadvantage; however, it could also be beneficial if it's to be used in a smaller area. 

The best part?

When you need something that's going to get in the smaller areas, this is going to work. The other robotic lawn mowers might cut the entire area faster, but if it can't fit in the parts of the yard you need it to most, well, guess who gets to go fix that?

You're looking at anywhere between 1.6"-4" on the height. And, if you need it, there are 5 adjustable positions for this. 

How Does It Mow?

The direction that the mower decides to go is at random. This will help with not leaving mowing paths behind and making sure the entire lawn is mowed evenly.

It uses a shock sensor system to detect objects. When coming in contact with anything on the lawn, it will stop, back-up, and turn around to mow a different way. This is the process of how your grass gets cut fully.

The Worx Landroid can mow a slope up to 20 degrees (35%). 


I put this on here because it's a plus one when comparing directly with similar models. Typically, with competitor robotic mowers, there is only the first year when the device is covered. 

But, with the Worx Landroid M, it comes standard with a 3-year warranty. That's helpful to know that it's covered and you don't have to worry about it.

Battery Life

The Landroid houses a 28-volt battery. Although this doesn't compare to their 56v 3-in-1 cordless mower, it's still pretty impressive considering this mower is doing all of the work for you!

As with many other pieces of electronic equipment, taking care of the battery is crucial. The total length of life depends on it.

The total span of the battery depends on a few factors including:

  • How long mowing season lasts
  • Number of hours Landroid mows per day
  • Maintaining the battery while not in use.

Winter Hibernation

This is designated in the manual especially to pay attention to. The manufacturer recommends that you give your mower a full charge before storing.

Here are the specifics of what to do before "hibernation" time:

  • Thoroughly Clean
  • Fully Charge The Battery
  • Turn It Off

It seems that some of these are self-explanatory, but it pays to get these things right. It's important to keep the battery charged in the winter due to cold temperatures and getting the most out of your mower.

Other Misc. Features

Have a look at some simple features the Landroid M has to offer. 

Rain Sensors

It detects rain drops and will immediately stop mowing. The mower follows the boundary wire back to the base and then starts a delay start countdown (0-180 mins.) before returning to duty.

Finding Charging Base

If it becomes low on battery and determines that a recharge is necessary, the Landroid will find it's way back to base, get a fresh charge and then return afterwards.

Maximized Cutting Capacity

The cutting blades actually spin in two directions in order to keep the blades sharp and cutting for the max amount of time. They can be flipped/rotated when needed to get a fresh cutting edge.

Software Update

When new versions are out, you'll be able to take advantage of newer software. It's pretty simple with just plugging a USB drive into the port available on the machine.

How Often (And How Long) Will It Need To Cut My Lawn?

The length of time (given from the instruction manual) for 1100 sq. ft is about 3 hours. A typical schedule might be setup with Monday and Thursday mowing from 7-8:30.

Of course these estimates will be determined by the slope of your yard, how tall your grass is, and a number of other considerations.

What's Included With The Mower?

There's enough in the package to get setup for the use of the mower. No additional accessories or parts needed. Here's what's included:

  • Well, the mower itself
  • Charging Base
  • 590 ft. boundary wire
  • [200] Installation Pegs
  • 590 Ft. Boundary Wire
  • [4] Charging Base Nails
  • Power Adapter
  • 2 Boundary Wire Distance Gauge

The mower uses three blades. So, you'll be getting enough replacements for three times.

Where Is The Worx Landroid Sold?

Currently, the Landroid is available on Amazon and other online retailers. 

Is The Landroid Really Affordable?

MSRP for the mower is priced less than $1,000. For most retailers, it seems to be around the 999-ish mark. But, as with many products, the price can vary. You'll need to do your own research on this part.

It's really hard to complain about that price, considering other robot mowers are going for twice that or more. 


Any person looking to get the most affordable and economical robot mower. You'll be spending less and still getting the functionality of a robotic mower to suit your needs.

Everything you need will come with the mower, without having to purchase any additional accessory kits or installation hardware. Definitely a plus!


If you own a home with a larger yard and are looking for a mower to give a quicker cut, you might consider a Robomow that will allow up to 3/4 acre and a 22" cutting width.

Another thing worth mentioning is that you'll get the capability of a remote control robotic mower using the Robomow. A feature certainly worth having and using all the time!

Summary and Thoughts

Hands down, the Worx Landroid is the most budget friendly robotic lawn mower to consider. Some of the features that you might miss out on are:

  • Wider Cutting Width
  • Remote Control Mower Feature
  • Shorter Cut Times

Even though you'll have to sacrifice some of the above features (and others not mentioned) and miss out on advanced options, it's a great buy.

So, if you're looking to invest in some of the latest yard technology, are willing to take break from pushing the mower and/or wanting to get extra tasks done around the outdoors of your home, consider the Landroid.
